Ribbon Dancer

DIY Ribbon Dancer

This ribbon dancer is both fun and safe. My daughter loves to twirl while the ribbons spin around her. When these are usually made they are on sticks, and it’s never a good idea to run or twirl with sticks. I used a wooden ring which work great for little hands to hold and are safe for play.

Spring paper flower wreath

I am little obsessed with these paper flowers. I created this wreath for my front porch and you need the following tools and supplies to create it:

Cricut machine
•Sweet Treats Cricut cartridge
Cuttlebug machine
Cuttlebug embossing folders
cardstock and patterned paper
•adhesive
hot glue gun
circle punches
12″ wire wreath form

Cut the flowers using the Sweet Treats cartridge at the following sizes: Flower 1 and 5 at 3″ and Flowers 2,3 and 4 at 2.5″. For Flower 1, punch two circles per flower at 1″ and 1.25″ with circle punches. For Flower 2, cut the centers from the cartridge at 2.5″. For Flower 3, punch a circle at 1.25″. For Flower 4, cut the center from the cartridge at 2.5″. For Flower 5, cut the center from the cartridge at 3″ and punch a circle at 1.25″. Run the flower centers through the Cuttlebug machine to emboss. Put all of the flowers together and adhere to the wire wreath form with hot glue.

This project is a fun way to create something seasonal and doesn’t use too much in the way of supplies. All of the flower centers were created from paper scraps and you need one 12×12 sheet of patterned paper for each flower. That’s it. If you are looking for a fun project to give as a gift that doesn’t cost a lot of money, then you might want to try it. You will most probably get hooked like I did. Enjoy!

After the long (long, LOOONGGG) winter that just about everyone has had this year, spring couldn’t be more welcome. And what better way to celebrate the return of the warmth (and we deserve some warmth after this winter!) than to bring in the bright colors of Cinco de Mayo? You can’t help but smile with all the colors and flowers of Cinco de Mayo and it’s the perfect opportunity for some colorful crafting! Maybe you’re planning a big bash for the day, or perhaps it’s just a good reason to bring out the bright and cheerful, either way, here are some of our favorite Cinco de Mayo projects!

It can’t be Cinco de Mayo without tissue paper bunting! I think this is the first craft I ever did for Cinco de Mayo, back when I was a little girl and I always think of these as the quintessential Cinco de Mayo decorations. And bonus! It’s a great craft to do with kids!

Easy Bird Treats for Spring

Earth Day is coming soon and I can’t wait for Spring to finally show up, so we made a quick bird feeder to entice some feathered friends to visit our yard. It is a bit of recycling as well as helping out birds during this unseasonably cold weather.

Beaded Butterflies

Beaded Butterfly

With spring finally here I wanted to do a fun craft that would get us in the spring spirit.  And what better craft than a butterfly craft to do that?  So we decided to make some beaded butterflies that the girls could play with.

This was a great fine motor skill activity for my youngest daughter since it takes a lot of hand eye coordination to put the beads on the pipe cleaners.  Younger children may take a little more time with this project but it is great practice for them so let them do it themselves if you can.

After the girls each made a butterfly, my oldest daughter was feeling really inspired and decided to make a horse.  I posted a picture of it at the bottom of this post so you can see how it turned out.  That is the great thing about this project is that really you can make any animal you want using just pipe cleaners and pony beads.
