House Number Planter

DIY a hanging planter with your house numbers!

I don’t consider myself to have a green thumb. I’ve got probably a 20% success rate when it comes to keeping plants alive. However, when spring rolls in, I want nothing more than to surround myself with as many plants as I can get my hands on. That’s most likely how this planter idea was born. I needed a house number sign for my apartment, but I wanted more plants.

Kids’ Crafts: Tissue Paper

If you have a creative child around, there are many great craft supplies to keep them busy, and keep you worry-free. Keep the right supplies on hand, and crafting with your kid can be fun and help you build memories that can last well into their lives.

Tissue Paper is one of our favorite craft supplies because we always have some on hand in a variety of colors and because it is so easy to work with. There are so many crafts to be made with tissue paper that you can find projects for kids of every age. We like to craft as a family when we’re getting ready for a party, or on a rainy day. It’s nice to have materials that everyone can use and make their own!

Tissue Paper Flowers can be used to decorate for parties, to adorn accessories and clothing and in scrapbooking. These are simple enough for everyone to help with.

Design with Stencils

This Spring I’m feeling more enthusiastic than usual about sprucing up my surroundings. My husband and I bought our first home this year and there are still many bare walls in need of arts and crafts. What better way to spruce things up than with pretty stencils and paint! Stencils and paints are on sale and I’m busy drafting up projects for wall art, patio art and some newly decorated accessories to make with my pretty new supplies.

I’m enamored with the Folkart Bird stencils. I can’t wait to use them on my husband’s herb planters. The chalkboard paint also gives the planters such a clean bright quality.
