I decided it was time to introduce regular, non sippy cups to my daughter. I didn’t want just any old cups though, so I made her Disney Princess cups! Here’s what you need to make your own…

DIY Snow White Disney Princess Cup on www.girllovesglam.com #tutorial #vinyl #project

For the Snow White cup, I used vinyl that was dark blue, light blue, white, red, and yellow. I measured how big I wanted the pieces to be and cut the dark blue and yellow strips with a paper cutter. Then I added the white collar strip using the same technique. For the sleeves, you can cut them out with a vinyl cutter or scissors. I cut out a light blue circle then two red rounded diamond shapes to put on top of the sleeves. It was super easy and it turned out really well!

For the Rapunzel cup, I cut a strip of light purple and dark purple using the paper cutter. Then, I cut the pink vinyl into a bow shape and two smaller strips to look like to bow is lacing up. Lastly, I cut two dark purple circles out for the sleeves and put them on the sides of the cup. Cute and simple!

For Cinderella, I used two different shades of blue vinyl. I cut one large strip of vinyl to cover the entire cup. I cut two circles out for the sleeves and a long scalloped piece to go around the bottom to mimic her dress. The easiest one to do for sure!

DIY Ariel Disney Princess Cup #tutorial #diy #littlemermaid #disney #craft

Although it isn’t a princess gown, I wanted the Ariel cup to be her mermaid bikini. To make this one, I used beige, green, and purple vinyl. I cut the beige vinyl into a strip and then the green vinyl into a strip below the beige. I cut out two circles out of the purple vinyl for the bikini top and a small purple strip to go along the back for the back of the bikini top. This one makes me giggle every time I look at it!

I can’t even tell you how happy I am with how they all turned out! Best of all, my daughter absolutely LOVES them!

4th of July Garland

I was given a box full of fabulous patriotic paper goodness from American Crafts to play with. I love creating paper banners for different holidays and I knew that Independence Day would be no exception to that! I made a 4th of July garland…

4th of July American Crafts Paper Banner

It is super duper simple, but perfect to bring a little patriotic spirit to the space. Here’s what you need…

American Crafts Patriotic Paper

*American Crafts paper

*American Crafts stickers

*Fishing line

*Electronic cutter

*Hot glue

Cut out two different shapes of stars with the electronic cutter. Decorate them with the stickers. Put hot glue on the back of the star and put the fishing line through it. Put another decorated star over the glue. Do this until you have enough to create a banner.

Hang it up and you are done! Simple, but patriotic enough for the holiday!

For my mason jar project, I wanted to come up with something that was cute, but functional for me. I love an organized space, so what better way than to make the mason jars a way to organize my office supplies! I love the trend of color blocking right now and I really wanted to bring that aspect to them too. On top of it all, I decided to make them chalkboards too! I am obsessed with the clear chalkboard paint!

Here’s how I made these cute jars…

Chalkboard Mason Jars

You need…

*Mason Jars

*Paint

*Clear Chalkboard Paint

*Chalk

*Paintbrush

*Tape

First, paint half of your mason jar one color. After that has dried, tape off the second half of the jar and paint it another color. Using the clear chalkboard paint, paint the entire jar following the instructions on the label. Once it is dry, you can write on it with your chalk and get organized!

It is seriously the easiest project ever, but it adds so much to a space!

Vintage Wooden Jewelry Box Makeover

I am participating in a really fun activity called the Thrifty Stash Snap Swap. How it works, is we are paired up with another person who will be going to Snap. We get to know each other and send them some thrifted goodies from our personal craft stash and from the thrift store! We do at least one project with the items, post about it, and then we get to meet our partner at the Snap conference next month! It has been a lot of fun! My project that I chose to do was making over an amazing vintage wooden jewelry box that I was sent.

Isn’t it just amazing?! I love how the colors look together! For the swap, I was partnered with Sarah, from Craft Quickies. She has a really cute blog that you should all check out! She sent me a really awesome box of goodies.
There are so many projects that I can already think of that I can do with all of this goodness! There will be more on the way! Let’s take a look at that gorgeous jewelry box…
I love all of the brass details, squares, and the yellow inside! I love the natural wood, but it was banged up pretty bad so I knew I would need to give it a little love.
I wanted a good, vibrant blue that wasn’t too turquoise. I got three different colors of blue acrylic paint and mixed them together. Then, I painted the jewelry box with about 3 coats of paint.
I fell in love instantly! I didn’t put any sort of sealer over it, and I don’t think I will. I don’t want it to be overly shiny and I like the way it looks just as is.
It was so fun to fill it up with my jewelry! I can’t wait to use the other things that Sarah sent me! To see some of the other Thrifty Stash Snap Swap posts, check out these links!

Falling Leaves Door Decor Tutorial

Pin It
I am excited to share the newest addition to my Fall decor with you today, my door hanger. Not only is it so easy, but it is inexpensive too! You can’t go wrong with that.
You will need…
8 felt leaf place mats (I found mine at the dollar store!)
Burlap garland or ribbon
Ribbon (this will be hidden)
Hot glue or Tacky Glue
Spray starch
Flat iron
You are probably thinking, a flat iron?! Yes! I didn’t want the leaves to be totally flat against the door, so I decided to give them a little dimension. Just spray some starch on each of the leaves. Curl the edges of the leaves with your flat iron, by clamping down and curving the flat iron as you pull towards the edges.
Lay out your leaves how you want them to be and glue them together. I used hot glue because my door hanger isn’t actually outside. If it is going to be outside, I recommend using something like Tacky Glue.
Put a ribbon through the top of the leaves. I poked a hole in one, and laced the ribbon through the center slit on another leaf. Tie the ribbon in the back. This is how it will hang up on your door.
Make a giant bow out of your burlap ribbon or garland and glue it to the top of your leaves.
Hang it up and enjoy! I know that there are a lot of people out there who are celebrating Christmas early and putting up their Christmas decor right now, but I just can’t do it! I love Fall decor too much! Do you have Fall at your house or are you decorating for Christmas already?
