Celebrate National Mason Jar day on November 30th with these ideas!
Have a few plain candles in a cabinet somewhere? Today, I’m going to share with you how to add images to candles using a heat gun. Using this technique, I turned plain white inexpensive candles into beautiful ones that look like they came from an upscale boutique. These make great gifts!
Happy November friends!! The count down to the holiday season has officially started, and the Christmas decorations have taken over the stores. But before we jump straight to Christmas cheer, I wanted to share a simple Thanksgiving decoration idea with you. Every November, as a family we do something throughout the month to help us all remember to be more grateful. In years past we've done the Thankful Pumpkin idea- which we love. But this year I wanted to do something that we didn't have to throw away, and could be stored easily. So I decided to make a Thankful scroll to hang in our dining room all November long. The idea is that we can add to the scroll throughout the month, and get our families in on the fun when they are here for Thanksgiving as well. I'm excited to see it filled out, and to have a visual reminder all month of how very blessed we are."It's not happy people who are thankful. It is thankful people who are happy."
I wanted to give my family a space to hang out, watch the sunset and give my husband a nice little nook to write.
Recipe for glass paint, easy to do, fun for the kids!
What else can I possibly make with a mason jar? A mason jar toothbrush holder of course! The classic mason jar is so versatile and yes it seems like I am using them a few times a month for a project around here. But we all have our passions right? This mason jar toothbrush holder is so quick and easy to make…I almost can’t call this a tutorial.
In the news lately there have been reports of people putting cameras on the outside of peepholes to see into your house/apartment/hotel room. I (Steph) started thinking about the peephole in my front door and possible ways of covering it when not in use.
After much thought, I came up with a DIY solution that is cute, functional, removable, and adds a little more security to my home. Mom helped bring the idea into reality and had most of the materials we used in her craft stash! Visit our blog to watch a video of it come together.
Curious how you can cut glass at home? Need to find a use for your old beer bottles? Or ever get inspired to want to decorate with some? Well now you can!

Happy DIY'ing babes xx.
Forget about wreath forms and fancy supplies... This dollar store hack will enable you to make wreaths lightning fast, with just botanical clippings and natural jute twine.
Three years ago when I started crafting, I chose a decoupage project as my first project. What a mistake! Every time I tried to get rid of the air bubbles, I ended up tearing the dang paper! After four or five tries, I was so annoyed that I swore I would never try my hand at decoupage again. Hahahaha, I know…what a sore loser, right? But just like anything else in life, the more you practice, the better you become at it…or should I say, the more you practice, the better you handle the defeat! LOL. A couple months and many defeats later, I must have trained my nerves much better, as I again dared to pick up Mod Podge. This time, surprisingly, everything went excellent, and I managed to make some beautiful antique world map decoupaged candles for Greg’s Mom as a Mother’s Day gift. Since Mother’s Day is approaching, I wanted to share a mother-loved-and-approved project with you, and this makes the cut, as Mom still loves the ones I gave her three years ago. Have you had enough of my yapping? Then let’s get on with the tutorial, shall we?First I took a bunch of measurements to find out the size of my LED candles. Once I knew the candle size, I started preparing my antique world maps according to size.
This is a pottery barn hack for the blue Cobalt stained glass vases. The pottery barn version is $129! But this vase cost me less than $2.00 because I used an apple juice bottle I already had. This stained glass method can also be done with Mason jars or any vase or jar of your choice.To make the stain lighter, just add a little water to the mod podge before mixing.
If you're looking for a cute, unique way to consolidate your children's snacks and toys in their overnight bag this is the perfect little DIY project for you. If you have older littles, this would be a great weekend project to do together over a cold glass of milk and some homemade cookies.
