I go through spurts with Pinterest!
Recently, I added a Pinterest page to my blog and have been having waaay too much fun with it!
I was nosing around for recipes and of course got extremely side tracked and wound up hunting down cute Valenties's Day decorations, which in turn, lead me to DIY projects!
Well, I found two I just couldn't resist and headed off to WalMart with my girls yesterday to purchase the supplies. The girls have had a recent obsession with homemade slime and we have invested in copious amounts of Elmer's glue. I have allowed them to go with it since I can include it as part of a science lesson on chemical reactions!
So here are my finished projects!
I saw these baskets and I feel in love with them! I plan on hanging one in the kid's bathroom and used one at my coffee bar. I have one left to find a home for. It made three!!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
All I did was hot glue a piece of twine to the back of the chalkboard and then tied it around the wire basket. THAT'S IT! I will need to buy some hooks, but that won't cost much! So I made a total of three baskets for about $2 a piece!!!
Here is one I am using at my coffee bar for coffee, tea and hot cocoa!!
Next... I made an adorable Valentine's Day paper doilie banner.
WHAT YOU NEED:
All you need to do is cut a piece of twine and thread it through the doilies! I wrapped scotch tape around the end of the twine so it would be easier to thread!!! I also added glitter to one, not sure I like it as much!! It was super cheap.... a total of $3.50 and it will make a ton of banners!!!
I hung one in Audree's play kitchen area!!!
So there ya have it!!! I spent under $10 on all of these projects!
Sometimes it's refreshing just to check out and use your creativity!
I pray you are given some time to do the same!
Peace and Blessings
