Simple Christmas Cards
A few years ago I made Christmas cards. Nothing fancy, just card stock, markers, and 3D Christmas stickers. Well, this year, since I have just moved (literally, I just officially moved in yesterday) I came up with a super easy and simple Christmas card this year. My vision was to get plain white cards and to draw a door on them with my new house number and a 3D wreath sticker. I went to Michael’s and couldn’t find anything! Most of the Christmas stuff was wiped out and this was back in early December so it’s not like I was looking last minute! I found a few things that could have…

Snowy Mason Jars
Last year I made little snowy winter tree scenes in mason jars for a winter craft. I wanted to do another mason jar DIY this year so I’m back with a snowy or frosted mason jar. I saw a few ideas on Pinterest using epsom salt to create a snowy or frosted glass look so I decided to use those ideas as inspiration. I used: 3 mason jars epsom salt Mod Podge craft glue Christmas ribbon a paint brush hot glue gun battery operated tea light candles I painted on the Mod Podge around the mason jars and then rolled the jars in the epsom salt. I let them dry…
Glitter Pine Cones
When browsing Pinterest for some fun winter DIY decor ideas I saw glitter pine cones. I had plans to buy fake pine cones from the craft store, but when I was visiting my aunt at her little weekend place upstate (New York) she had a whole basket full of pine cones from her yard. I took a dozen or so home and stored them until I had the time to do my little holiday craft. For this easy holiday/winter craft, all I needed was glitter, spray adhesive, burlap, and a wire basket. I took some cardboard outside and did my spraying and glittering out there. It was my first time…
While browsing Pinterest (what else is new) I was looking for a fall decor craft/idea. I saw pumpkins being used as planters which I thought was a brilliant idea and really cute. However, I quickly found out that the one I originally saw was made using a plastic decorative pumpkin and when I tried to search for real pumpkin planters they were either done by real florists and elaborate or hot glued succulents on top of the pumpkin. But I didn’t see a reason why I couldn’t use a real pumpkin as a planter so that’s what I did! I went to my local farmstand and got 2 medium sized…
DIY Slouchy Tee
I’ve been wanting to do a cut-out t-shirt for a while now. I see so many cute designs on Pinterest, but I know my limits craft wise and I think it would be tough for me to pull off a cool cut-out design in the back of a t-shirt. I was thinking of a skull or tree. I know, pretty ambitious. So for my first cutting up a t-shirt craft, I decided to do something much easier/safer and do a slouchy tee or off-the-shoulder look. I followed a YouTube tutorial for the neckline which was a really good idea because I was originally just going to start cutting without even…
Spring Craft: Faux Floral Globe
If you’ve been following me for a while you may remember I did a post last year around this time about DIY Air Plant Terrariums. I had gotten two air plant terrarium kits which comes with the globes, plants, and the other things you need inside such as sand or moss and you put it together yourself. Well, those plants died this past winter. They only needed to be watered once a week or so, but after a few months they just weren’t do so well and I may have started to neglect them which accelerated their demise. Hey, the way they are watered is you have to soak them so…
