pegboard abstract christmas tree...

This is such an easy art project
with a really big visual impact!

 We used VERY inexpensive ornaments
and made sure they were shatterproof.

We had pegboard left over from
another project and decided to keep it
unpainted. However, the color 
possibilities are endless!

The ornaments fit perfectly into the 
holes. You could hot glue them if
you don't want your kids constantly 
rearranging it.

So easy!

Happy crafting!

outdoor carpet christmas tree...

Oh my goodness, how much
fun is this Christmas Tree?

We purchased some outdoor carpeting
from the giant carpet rolls at Home Depot.  
It was only $3.95, and you could
make so many!

We grabbed a straight edge and a Sharpie.

Next, we drew our tree on the back.

Then we cut it out.

We used a scrap of trim for the trunk.

You could leave it plain....

or add a string of battery
powered lights.

The carpet will hold up in the elements
and the texture is perfect for a tree!
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

christmas outfits in a crafternoon...

This is a fun way to craft and create festive 
outfits for your Christmas card this year!

Hazel & Ruby has this adorable
 Felt Flower Headband, we thought
it would be cute as a belt too
(and it's on sale right now)!

It only took us 15 minutes to create.

This  little model LOVED the 
new addition to her dress.

It turned out really cute and saved
us so much money by recycling an old dress.

 We needed something new for our 
favorite little dude and thought 
these Hazel & Ruby Crocheted Bows 
would make perfect bow ties.

 They took about 30 minutes to crochet.  

The pop of red was perfect for the picture.

Say cheese!
Wishing you a happy, crafty holiday!

cloudy day...

These little clouds were so 
easy to make! They would be
perfect for a kids room 
or baby shower.

Grab some cotton swabs, batting,
and old wiffle balls.

Roll the batting into balls 
and hot glue the cotton swab up
the middle. It adds a lot of
stability to the cloud.

Put the cotton swab in the hole
and hot glue the batting to
the ball.

Hang them from the ceiling with
fishing line. 

They are so whimsical swaying
in the breeze.

This little guy loved them!

Happy crafting!

washable markers in the tub...

The best art projects are messy!
We set these two little artists loose
in an empty bathtub with 
washable markers.

Knowing this might end badly 
we opted for the "Ultra-Clean"

They could have colored 
for hours!

It was the moment of truth...
it washed right off!

Their favorite part was watching the 
beautiful watercolors go down the 
drain. This will likely become a fun
weekly activity!

halloween made easy...

There are so many fun and easy Halloween
projects you and your kids can do with 

 The Halloween patterns are so cute!

You could surprise your little ones and 
decorate their table for a spooky meal.

It can turn a normal day into a party!

So cute!

Need a last minute costume?
have you covered!
We used a stick, some felt, and 
a paper machete hat.

One cute little witch in a snap!

We hot glued some felt to hair clips, 

and created a quick costume
that can be thrown together 
just in time to watch the
costume parade at school.
Happy-Crafty Halloween!
