April 26, 2013 1 Comment

With Mother’s Day approaching, I have been thinking about things to make for my Mom and Grandmas. Each year, I like to do something new with the kids and create a unique, one-of-a-kind, gift for them. I realized that last year, I never really shared our footprint picture we made.

DIY: Decorative Votive Holders from Tissue Paper

March 19, 2012 No Comments

Tissue Paper Votive Holder

I have always heard that tissue paper could give create a stained glass look, but I wasn’t too sure until I tried it out myself. I couldn’t believe how easy it was! This is cheap to make using scrap tissue paper and votive holders that you can get for a dollar or less.

NEED:Votive Holder With Tissue Paper

  • Tissue Paper
  • Elmer’s Glue
  • Votive Holder
  • Large Paint Brush (sponge brush works great)
  • Permanent Marker (optional)

HOW TO:

  1. Cut tissue paper into 1″ or smaller squares
  2. Brush a thin layer of glue on about half the votive holder
  3. Randomly place the tissue paper onto the votive holder (on the bottom and top, I let the tissue paper hang off and trimmed when I was complete)
  4. Brush more glue on as you work your way around
  5. After you have covered the holder, brush glue over the whole thing
  6. When glue dries, decorate with permanent marker (optional)

What do you think? I was very impressed how it turned out. It doesn’t even look like tissue paper. I am going to try this on a larger scale when I can get to the store to get a hurricane candle holder.

 


Mother’s Day Gift Idea – Handprint Flower

May 4, 2011 16 Comments

Finger Paint Handprint FlowerIf you are looking for something cute to do with your toddlers or kids for Mother’s Day, this is easy and there are so many things you can do with it! Use pink or red finger paint for the ‘flower’ and paint a stem/grass (this was the best I got out from my 22 month old). I always use card stock instead of copy paper, because it is thicker and shouldn’t warp from the paint.

Here are some different ideas you can do for gifts for Moms, Grandmas, etc.:

  • Make a card with the flower on the cover
  • Attach a picture of your little one next to the flower and frame it
  • Do some ‘flowers’ on wrapping paper for the present or on a gift bag

Nifty Tip:

I always take a picture of the artwork and upload it on my computer. Then not only is it forever saved, but you can use it to print copies, make photo gifts (mug, shirt, mouse pad, etc), or use it in a photo book.
