Our Chicken Coop

Our Chicken Coop

We are so excited to share our new Chicken Coop. The baby chicks are not quite big enough to hang out in their new home yet but the day will come soon.

We had a guy here locally build the coop for us, many of you have seen the Poop Coop with the toilet seats HERE, he makes such fantastic coops. When we got ours home we had to paint it all up to match the house. We will most likely add a few additions to it as time goes.

Wine Cork Stamped Poppy Flowers

Wine Cork Stamped Poppy Flowers


I just absolutely love Poppy flower crafts they are too pretty and so much fun. I got the inspiration to do this from a similar craft that I fell completely in love with THIS POPPY FINGER PRINT CRAFT FROM CRAFTY MORNING. We of course had to do both the fingerprint poppy's and then the wine cork ones.

Materials: Acrylic or tempera paint, a wine cork, paper and a paint brush

Breast Cancer Awareness Wine Glasses (Candle Holders)

Breast Cancer Awareness Wine Glasses (Candle Holders)

 Materials: Glitter Blast Spray CLICK HERE, Dollar Store Wine Glasses, Wood letters, Glue, Ribbon, other embellishments, and led candle lights.


Directions: Make sure your glasses are clean then simply spray them with the glitter spray and let dry for 24 hours. To do the ribbon glass I first sprayed the inside of the glass with the pink next I laid a piece of cut out paper in the shape of the ribbon on the outside of the glasses then sprayed over it with the white glitter (carefully remove the paper while the paint is still wet) Once dry you can embellish them any way you want to, I hot glued on the wooden H, P, and E letters and then used other misc things I had around the house to finish them up.

NOTE: When spraying these you must treat it like any spray paint, you need to do it in coats and spray at a slight distance, if you get to close or spay too much in one spot at a time then the paint/ glitter can run. If you live in a cold/ damp climate you need to take caution when spraying it may not tack up if its too cold out (you can spray them in a garage or somewhere warmer to help, but be careful of over spray in this case).

NOTE: These are for decoration purposes only, none of the items used in creating these are food safe.

Hope Breast Cancer Awareness

Plastic Plate Flowers

Plastic Plate Flowers / Garden Flowers for Kids

I just love the glass plate flowers that everyone makes for their gardens, my co-workers make a ton of them every year and are making more this weekend. I have been wanting to do some myself but just cant get time to make them. After seeing THIS post I got the idea of making plastic plate flowers, that way its a project the entire family could enjoy. 
I also got even more creative with the kids and we made stained glasses flowers.

Materials Used: Plastic cups and plates of all shapes and sizes, acrylic paints, brushes, hot glue and glue gun and wood dowel. (for stained glass flowers, instead of paint you need tissue paper, and elmers glue)

Directions: Paint your plastic plates how ever you want using acrylic paint, then when dry you can assemble them using the hot glue. If you are making the stained glass flowers instead of painting the plates you will take your tissue paper cut into squares adhering it to the plate with some watered down elmers glue (make sure the pieces are nice and wet and completely covered in glue, let dry and assemble).

DURABILITY  Many people have asked how they hold up outside and in the rain- As far as the stained glass ones go they dont last in the rain, I would keep them inside. The standard painted flowers do fantastic in the rain- mine where outside for a week nonstop raining and they still look amazing. If you want them to hold up over a long period of time I would recommend putting a sealer on them.
