Kids love to create their own DIY gift wrap. And these hand painted gift bags are super fun to make and darling for wrapping too.
Advent calendars are great for so many reasons. They create a way to celebrate the season and the days that lead up to Christmas through simple little treats and gifts.
I’m a big fan of using bright and slightly unconventional colors to add decorative touches to our table, so this year I thought I’d try my hand at painting and lettering a menu and placecards.
Easter Egg decorating is a holiday tradition for many families. It’s no secret, though, that dyeing eggs can result in a serious mess. It’s a close second to carving pumpkins when it comes to the messiest of holiday crafts! By replacing the dye with other materials such as paints, colored pencils, markers, and crafting (washi) tape, your family can create spectacular Easter eggs with less stress.
When I was a child I could not wait to make valentines with my mom every year in early February. We would put all our materials out on the dining room table and spend an entire afternoon with doilies, clip art and rubber cement. I’m calling these valentines old school because there’s nothing digital involved with these fun love notes – just stickers, markers and a little creativity!
