the easiest terrarium ever

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.

make a game: bowling

oven bake clay bowling toy set

While the possibilities for oven bake clay are virtually endless, we always find ourselves going back to the same type of project with ours. We like to make toys for our toys! This oven bake clay bowling set is just one such example. Simply mold a set of bowling pins and a ball, bake, cool and then enjoy hours of entertainment watching the kids play with the “toys” they just made. Strike!

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.

necklace organization

printing block as a necklace holder

Cleaning up the bedroom recently and decided to use this old wood block for textile printing to hang and organize necklaces. It works great and I love having my necklaces on display (and untangled)!
