Patriotic Wine Glasses Candle Holders

Patriotic Wine Glasses (Candle Holders)

Materials Used: Dollar Store Wine Glasses, Glitter Blast Spray Paint, Hemp, Hot glue and Hot glue gun, and Misc. embellishments.
(looking for the glitter spray CLICK HERE for where I purchase mine)

Directions: Make sure your glasses are clean then simply spray them with the glitter spray and let dry for 24 hours. For the white on the patriotic glasses I sprayed the inside of the glass with white first and then masked off the areas such as the starts and the white stripes on the outside then sprayed the blue and red on the outside. I used star stickers to mask off the star area and a low tack tape for the stripes. Once dry you can embellish them any way you want to.

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 purpose only, not meant for actual food use.

Plastic Cup Lanterns and Luminaries

Plastic Cup Lanterns and Luminaries 

 We had so much fun making our plastic plate flowers we wanted to do more with our plastic cups and since we still had some painted cups and plates left over we decided to make lanterns and luminaries. They where oh so simple and the kids have been running all over the house playing with them. As I am posting this they are in fact under their beds in their hides out with them.

Materials Used: Plastic cups, acrylic paint, brushes, chenille stems, ribbon and led lights

Directions: Paint your plastic cups how ever you want, when they are dry poke 2 small holes, one on each side of the cup and insert a chenille stem thru it and bend the ends up on the inside, then simply place your led light on the inside and have fun.

Hello Kitty Button Art

Hello Kitty Button Art


My daughter is crazy about everything Hello Kitty so I wanted to do a Hello Kitty craft with her. After seeing the craze for button art projects and how much fun they can be I decided what better fun then to make a Hello Kitty Button Art for Addie's Room. Since I have tons of tubs of buttons (THESE amazing mixed tubs) stashed in my craft room I got pretty lucky with my selection.

Materials Needed: Canvas, acrylic paint, brushes, buttons and glue (YES Paste is what I used but you can use whatever you have)

Directions: Start by painting the background of your canvas (I only chose to do this since Hello Kitty is white and my background was white). While your background drys cut out an outline of Hello Kitty to trace. Once your background is dry you can lay your image down and trace the basic outline and then paint the center white. Allow the white paint to dry before gluing on your buttons. I put a good coat of Yes paste down on the canvas first then arranged all of my white buttons. Last I added the eyes, nose, whiskers and bow ( I got really lucky in my mixed tub of buttons and found some pink ones that worked perfect for the bow).

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
