Mother's Day Ideas!

Here are a couple of ideas that can be used for all sorts of things like wedding showers, baby showers, spring and summer parties, birthday parties, home decor, and MOTHER'S DAY!!!

How to make an umbrella gift, decoration, party favor

This cute umbrella is easily made out of paper, chenille (pipe cleaner), and ribbon (or yarn).  You can make them any size. 
Large ones, made out of 12" x 12" scrapbook paper, make great decorations. 
Medium size ones, made out of regular 8.5" x 11" copy paper, make great cards (the umbrella can be flat and fit in an envelop), or fill it with candy and it makes a great gift.
Small ones, made out of 6" x 6" paper, make great nut cups or party favors by each plate setting.

You can see the "how to" video I did by clicking below or on the photo above:

The next project is also great for MOTHER'S DAY and for weddings and anywhere in your home.  The natural, rustic look is so popular right now.  The flower bouquet would look terrific as a centerpiece on a burlap table runner.

The possibilities are endless.  All you have to do is start saving all of your toilet paper tubes.  Yes, you heard me, the gorgeous flowers are made out of toilet paper tubes!!!

I hope to post a couple of more Mother's day ideas soon -- we'll see how I do!

Paper Stained Glass Easter Egg!!!


How to make a stained glass paper Easter egg

This was a little project I did with my grandkids.  They had so much fun!  They were all coloring and it didn't matter how they colored or if they went outside of the lines.  Just a great big scribbling fest!

How to make a stained glass paper Easter egg

I picked up some poster paper (15 cents a foot) at a craft store, drew the egg on it with a pencil and let the grandkids go at it!

I did a little "how to" video with instructions to make the stained glass paper Easter egg and also for the solid colored Easter egg too.  Just click below or on any of the photos to start the video :)

How to make a snowflakish Easter Egg!!!
You can decorate a whole house with these large (3 feet by 2 feet) Easter eggs.  You can buy the poster paper in a lot of different colors: pink, red, green, blue, purple, yellow, orange, etc. 

I get more compliments on these simple to make paper Easter eggs than I do on any of my other Easter decorations.

Have so much fun with this quick and easy project and . . .

Happy Easter Time!!!

Easter Egg Time!!!

Happy Happy April Everyone!!!
Isn't springtime the best; not too hot, not too cold, just right . . .

Easter is later this year.  This is good, it's given me time to make something I've wanted to do for a long time.
My mom has this wire tree on a rock that she purchased years and years ago.  When I was a kid, I got to hang cute little miniture Christmas ornaments on it.
Years later after I was grown and gone, my mom started hanging hearts on it for Valentines Day, then eggs for Easter, then little bats and jack o' lanterns on it for Halloween.
Anyway, I have wanted a tree like that for a long time and have never seen one in any stores, so I made one and it was easy!!!

How to make the wire tree
Just click on the photo above or on the link below for a "how to" video I did to show you how to do it:

The possibilities are endless on how big you want to make it, or how wide you want the trunk, or what color wire to make it with.  You can also choose how full of branches you want the tree to have etc.

The eggs are a fun, quick, and easy project too.  Not to mention, perfect for my little tree!

How to make clay Easter eggs
These cute Easter eggs are made from oven bake clay.
Here's a "how to" video I did to show you how to make them, just click on the photo above or on the link below:

The clay eggs can also super easily be made into earrings, a bracelet, and a necklace.  And you can make them any size you want.  Here's a pic of the ones I made with a ruler, so you can see how big they are.
