Create your own beautiful fabric blooms to use in your crafting. Put them on hats, wear them as a brooch, glue them on a hair clip, or fill a bowl with these beauties. How else could you use them in your craft projects?
While watching Morgan play with Mod Podge Photo Transfer for her World Map, I started to think about what other unique surfaces you could use this to transfer photos to. I decided to give clay a try. I’m always drawn to tiny flower pots and though they would make a great surface to experiment on, and it was really fun!
I’ve sort of given up on owning plants. I can’t keep them alive, I do not understand how to do that. Doesn’t matter what type of plant it is, if it’s in my possession, it will die a slow, painful death.

My mom and stepdad moved to a beautiful new house almost a year ago. She’d had this potted tree that had made moves with her for almost twenty years, to different houses in the same state, to a house with a newly formed family, and even a house across the country. It had been in my home growing up, no matter where we lived, since I could remember. Then, she moved to this gorgeous house surrounded by nature in the middle of the woods…and it killed her plant. The dumb “softened” water at her house killed her plant. It made me so sad to hear that our beloved family tree had died.
We love making wreaths for all the seasons. You can get pretty creative when making wreaths with kids and use a variety of household and crafts materials to make some unique seasonal decor. Here are some of my favorites.

There’s nothing cuter than hearing a 1 year old correctly identify and say the word ‘Hydrangea!’ Here are some awesome flower crafts we can make at home using a variety of supplies we have on hand.
Peonies are my favorite flowers from our garden. The only thing I don’t like about Peonies is how quickly they bloom and drop their petals. Here’s a tutorial for how to make lasting tissue paper peonies in all of your favorite colors.
