Modern Stripe Christmas Wreath

It is no secret that I love stripes. They are in the decor throughout my house, my closet is full of them, and I dress my kids in a lot of stripes. I mean, how can you NOT love a good stripe?! I few years ago, I made a floral stripe wreath that I still love to this day. I knew I needed to make a Christmas version of this wreath. I just really love how this modern stripe Christmas wreath turned out!

Floral Pumpkin Mod Podge Craft

Several years ago, I saw a tutorial for a damask pumpkin that I totally fell in love with. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to make one of my own. I did and loved that pumpkin for years, but now damask isn’t quite my style anymore. That is why I knew I needed to make a new Mod Podge pumpkin, a floral pumpkin!

I love how bright and fun this floral pumpkin is! It reminds me a little of the Day of the Dead, which I also really love! This floral pumpkin is really easy to make and the best part is that you can customize it to be whatever pattern you like. If you want stripes, damask print, flowers, polka dots, etc. The possibilities are endless! Here is what you will need to make your own… [Read more…]

Disney Character Inspired Picture Frame

We just got back from a trip to Disneyland and it was just the best! I am pretty sure I was the most annoying Instagrammer on my personal account because I posted all of my photos so they could be added to my photo books. But I also wanted to be able to see a photo to remind us of our trip all of the time. I had looked at picture frames at the Disney store, but they were just too pricey! Thankfully with a little vinyl and my Silhouette Cameo, I could whip up something I like even better than anything I saw at the Disneyland shops!

I love the song, “Zip-a-dee-doo-dah” because I grew up watching a Disneyland sing-a-long that had that song in it. To me, no song screams Disneyland more than that one! I knew that the lyrics, “My, oh my what a wonderful day” would sum up our trip perfectly! To make this frame, I used… [Read more…]

How to Make a Shirt With Many Types of Vinyl: 100 Day of School Shirt

It was the 100 day of school recently and we had to make a shirt with 100 of something on it. When I talked with my kindergartner, she instantly knew she wanted 100 hearts on her shirt! Instead of cutting and gluing 100 hearts on a shirt, I wanted to make a shirt that she could wear again and again… without totally wasting a shirt.

Thankful Thanksgiving Sign

Thanksgiving is one of those holidays that seems to get skipped a lot. The sad thing is it is one holiday that truly stands for something that we should all be paying attention to. It isn’t just a Thursday where we stuff our faces and make shopping plans for the next day. It is a time where we can really reflect on what we have been blessed with and surround ourselves with the people we love. I wanted to focus on being grateful for the entire month of November, so I made this sign that we can look at throughout the month and even add our own leaves to with things we are grateful for if we wanted to.

I love that this sign features geometric leaves. I am a sucker for geometric ANYTHING!

Pretty Big Bad Wolf Girl Costume

When my five year old saw the Pottery Barn Halloween catalog, she instantly fell in love with a deer costume. She mistakenly thought it was a wolf at first and that instantly inspired this year’s family Halloween costume theme of Red Riding Hood characters. But instead of being the Big Bad Wolf, we like to think of our wolf as the Pretty Nice Wolf.

This costume was incredibly easy to make. In fact, I was able to get it completely finished in less time than it takes for my 5 year old to go to kindergarten. It is a very close version of the Pottery Barn costume that she fell in love with, but I actually love the extra details we added to our costume a little more! The greatest part about it all is the fact that it is 100% no sew!

To make your own, you need… [Read more…]

Red Riding Hood Family Halloween Costume

It is FINALLY time for my favorite series of posts of the entire year! Our family Halloween costume! I had no idea that this would become such a tradition for me, but I look forward to creating themed costumes for my family each and every year. They still get excited about it too, but I dread the day that I have teenagers who won’t dress up in a theme with me anymore. This year, we decided to be Little Red Riding Hood characters!

The best part about all of these costumes is that they are all NO SEW! I have said it once, I will say it a million times… sewing makes me swear. I know I have been given some talents but sewing just is not one of them! So rest assured that any costumes you see on my site aren’t going to require a sewing machine.  [Read more…]

Yarn and Eyeball Halloween Pumpkins

I love creating my own Halloween decor! I am not a fan of scary Halloween decor and I’m not really a fan of overly cutsey Halloween decor either. It puts me in kind of a weird spot that is hard to find stuff that I really love. Luckily, I love Halloween crafting! I whipped up these yarn and eyeball pumpkins last week and I LOVE them something fierce. They took me no time at all and I just am a little obsessed with how they turned out!
