easy wood lettering. the l-o-v-e-r project

When we go upstate for the weekend I get all crazy with craft stores and spray paint. This is barely a project, but it was lots of fun and you get fast, easy results. Which sometimes, is just what the crafter ordered.

Honestly, the most difficult part of this project was deciding which $1.49 wooden l-e-t-t-e-r-s I was going to use!

A little primer, a little spray paint, let it dry and you’re done. To make it absolutely perfect, you may choose to run a little fine grain sandpaper over the letters before you prime.

This last weekend was a craftacular activities weekend. And while there are some pretty awesome projects coming up on the blog, these simple Astro Rocks were like an added crafting bonus. I mean, when your outside with an awesome can of 24K Gold spray, paint it’s easy to get carried away.

the easiest terrarium ever

written by tammy

impress your friends and transform your home image with the easiest terrarium project ever

After a nice long summer of travel and beaches, there’s nothing like settling back into the snuggly fall weather with a little home updating.  After hanging the awesome Chris Marley owl butterfly we bought over the summer, we moved on to the air plants we brought back from Cape Cod and the beautiful hexagonal terrarium. I have to say, there is nothing easier to make and maintain than an air plant terrarium. They are simple to assemble and the plants only need an occasional spritzing or a weekly dunk in water to thrive.  I love our new terrarium and our warm and natural corner redo.

All you need for this is a container, gardening moss and a few air plants. Simple is better, but you can also add a favorite rock or mineral,  shells collected on a favorite vacation, driftwood twigs, etc.

paper doghouse

When it’s time for some rainy-day after school fun, sit down at the table for another craft that doubles as an activity.

Using heavyweight paper, we outlined our designs in black ink then filled it in with watercolor.  Starting with a flat piece of paper we designed the yard, fully equipped with toys and a bowl.

Draw a dog, paint, dry and then cut it out.  Use another small strip of paper to construct a stand to prop your puppy up, and glue it into place. When everything is dry have fun with the kids setting up house and playing pretend. We brought out the Playmobile toys for added fun and hours of entertainment.
