Upcycled glitter star tree topper w1

(Nov 5, 2013)  Nico was making a tree downstairs at my mother’s and he wanted to put the star on top, but the only one she had was very blah, so she sent him up to glitterize it! It took literally 5 minutes to do.

We painted mod podge (you could [...]

Christmas lacing card ornaments

Christmas lacing card ornament

(Nov. 17, 2013) Last year we made awesome cinnamon ornaments for our country style Christmas tree, they still smell and look awesome this year but I wanted Nico to make something new this year. Our friend at 3 Dinosaurs had provided us with our lacing card tree top last year, [...]

Paper roll mummies

Paper roll mummies

As most of you have noticed, we haven’t posted many crafts in the last nine to ten months, because Nico was pretty much against it, since it was “too much work” and “too long” according to him. So we have been mostly cooking, hence the influx of recipes. But for Halloween, I wanted [...]

Foam sheet Easter eggs

Foam sheet Easter eggs

(March 7, 2012) Easter is coming, so here is a quick toddler craft we made last year but forgot to post about. I got foam sheet egg shapes at the dollar store and asked Nico if he wanted to decorate them for Easter.
