My New Year`s resolution is to make sure my blog post happen one time! …but don`t count on it.
Welcome to 2013, and as a way to celebrate the coldest month of the year here is my front door.
Super easy and fast! My favorite kind of projects.
I used popsicle sticks and hot glue. For the ones that had to be cut I used thick wire cutters. Make sure to cut them on an angle so that they do not have to be layered on the back. Also, it is a good idea to cut them under a towel so they don`t fly everywhere.
After all the hot gluing hit it with some spray paint. I used a cool light blue, I don`t think it looks very blue in the pictures. I also added some glitter… because what`s a project with out glitter, Right!
All in all, super easy, super quick!
Our family is spread across many miles and during the Holiday’s the distance becomes more apparent.
As a way to make sure that Grandma and Grandpa have all of their grand children around them at Christmas time we made them this…
There is a great tutorial on how to make them here. They are super cute, and really easy to make. We used scrap wood, felt, googley eyes, paint and hinges.
You should try it!
After all the traveling, camping and catching up here we are in September. A bitter-sweet time of the year. Sending the kids off to another year of school, it is great to see them go but the early mornings and lunch packing can sometimes be a little bit much.
September reminds me of Back To School, but the idea of making a wreath full of school supplies was less than attractive. I decided to use apples (the quintessential teacher’s gift), dried seed pods and acorns to welcome fall while still holding on to the last days of summer. I found the acorns while on vacation in Nova Scotia. My sister-in-law was not as excited as I was to see them. But then, she has to remove them by the shovel full off of her lawn each year. The apples are not real, but to see them and feel them you would think they were. The poppy pods are from my own garden, they are the beautiful Royal Wedding Poppy. I hope that they will reappear again next year in all their glory.
So what do yah think? Are you ready for Fall?
