I found an old mason jar at an antique store this week. I was inspired by a message in a bottle, so I decided to write motivation sayings about faith and put it in the jar. I then found some clear stones to put at the bottom. I added a ribbon and a button at the bottom to add some more color. I wanted to put a light such as an electronic tea light candle but I couldn’t seem to find one. If you decided to make this, you could add your own personal touches. There are so many things you can do with old jars, who knew!
Last month my mom and I went to Color Me Mine for my birthday. We chose these adorable penguin banks to paint. We had so much fun, probably a little too much fun. I think we might have freaked the kids out around us. It was such a blessing to take time out of my busy school schedule and spend some quality time with my mom. [Read more...]
I was at our local flea market today, and I found the coolest serving trays for $1! I have seen really great ideas of memo boards, so the serving tray sounded like a great idea for a memo board.
- I took a piece of beach-themed scrapbook paper and decoupaged it onto the tray.
- I also found some cool shells at Michael’s, and I decided to make them into magnets.
My dorm room has a lot of beach items in it, so this memo board will fit in great in my dorm room. This memo board was easy to make, and you can put anything on it–to do lists, pictures, sticky notes, and the list goes on.
After making a smaller hair bow holder, I decided to make a small headband holder. I used a Cottonelle Toilet Paper Cover. I covered it with pictures and quotes taken out of my Seventeen magazine. I added some ribbon, a flower, and some flat marbles, and now I have a cute headband holder to take back to my dorm!
After making my first hair bow organizer, I realized I wanted to take a smaller version to back to college with me. There isn’t very much space in a college dorm, so I created a small bow holder. I had some wooden letters laying around so I used one. I also used mod podge, scrapbook paper, and small magnets. I glued the paper to the letter and to the magnets. I then hot glued the magnets to the letter. It doesn’t hold as many hair bows as the larger one, it has just enough space for your favorite hair bows and clips. I can’t wait to bring this to my dorm room!
After working on organizing my headbands, I decided I needed a way to organize my hair clips. I got an idea from Sweet N’ Sassy Girls on how to make a hair bow organizer. I covered a dry erase board with scrapbook paper and ribbon. I put the board on a cute easel I found at Michael’s. Then I used some strong magnets that I bought at Michael’s, and my bows were finally organized!
