Here comes Peter Cottontail {pintrest party}

image

This months Girl’s Night/ Pintrest Party was inspired by Rain on a Tin Roof. I just adored her glitter bunny  and i too had pinned the same exact others that she had  gotten inspiration from! (great minds must think alike!)  It is always so much fun to see how each canvas turns out! A few girls painted their bunnies and the others used fabric (which I loved). I had found a ribbon with yellow and gray that was my inspiration for the color pallet. 

{{INSPIRATION}}

 

Supplies:

canvas

bunny template

paint

yarn, for tail

ribbon, for hanging

fabric, ribbon, or paper  to create bunting

I painted yellow stripes, I placed painters tape on the canvas leaving about 3 finger width between each strip of tape, I used a butter yellow and allowed it to dry, then I added a bunch of water to the remnants of the yellow paint and did the stripes between the same tone of yellow, just much lighter.  Then I traced the 2 bunnies with a pencil on my canvas and painted them gray. I made the bunting by cutting various pieces of fabric in triangles and hot glued them on the twine. I used yarn to make the fluffy tail and used leftover fabric, cut it into 3 stripes and braided it to make a really different kind of hanger. I adore how it turned out!!

“SNOW” Doh {play sand}

pic.twitter.com/f4Vox0MX

Talk about a fun activity to do while it’s cold outside!! This was a blast, not going to lie, it made a huge mess but, the time they spent quietly playing was well worth having to pull out the vacuum!!

Recipe:                                                      

1 5lb bag flour

1 15 oz baby oil

Dump flour in a big bowl and drizzle baby oil all over the flour mix well and you will have the softest sand ever!! I think next time I may add a little food coloring (paste) in the oil to try for colored sand!!

Christmas Pure & Simple {nativity}

The girls over at Eighteen 25 have done it again!

This really IS the Reason for the Season, right?

To celebrate the Birthday of Jesus.

I have wanted a nativity forever! My Mother has an all white set that she (claims) made in ceramics back in 1978! I hope one day to get my hands on it! Until then I think this is a fantab idea. It is simple. It is lovely! I am going to try and recreate a version on this. Thanks so much to the lovely ladies at Eighteen 25

Pop on over to Eighteen 25

and see how they crafted this beautiful ART!

I can cross another thing off my Summer Bucket List!! I got crafty the other night and made my summer wreath. I think it turned out pretty cute and for less than $10 I think it is even cuter!!

I found a wreath form at the dollar store. Already had the “G” initial that I picked up at Hobby Lobby 1/2 off for less than $2. Bought 3 spools of ribbon, also half off and the windmills were .49 cents!!

Pulled out my trusty glue gun and just started gluing! Took me about 15 mins and voila! my creation on the front door!! Fun & Easy!

“Art in the Park” this is where the kids (really the teachers schlep all the stuff out and hang it via clothes pins in massive April winds!) display their lovely art work for all the school to see, along with the town!
