Spring Wreaths

Easter is approaching fast and I’m not even done with my holiday décor! Oh well, guess I’ll just have to keep it up longer…LOL!

What you need:
Screamers or ribbon
Cardboard or poster board
Two round things, on smaller than the other (I used plates)
Pencil or marker
Embellishments (flowers, buttons, whatever you’d like to use)

1. Trace your large and small circle onto the poster board or cardboard.
2. Grab your scissors and cut out the circles.
3. Pop out that center circle, and voila! You have a wreath form!

4. Grab some streamer, dab a little glue and start wrapping it around the wreath form, like in the photo below.

5. Wrap your streamer until you’re back at your starting point, then cut it off of the spool, leaving a tail. The side with the tail is the back of your wreath, and you want to tuck that tail through the closest loop of streamer and glue
6. Turn your wreath back over. If you used wide ribbon like I did, your last loop is not going to look so hot, but don’t despair! A couple of fabric flowers will fix that right up.
7. Arrange the flowers in one corner of your wreath, and glue them into place.

8. That’s it you’re done!
The FREE spring banner printable can be downloaded from I {heart} Nap Time!

Now to dress up the front door…..

YUMMY Peep Houses!

Awhile back I run across these cute little peep homes over at TipJunkie and knew Little Miss and I had to make them.

What you'll need:
Graham Crackers
Squeezable frosting
Edible grass (Target)
Candies (for decorating)

She is so proud of her little house!

Fun and easy craft to break up the day!

{FREE PRINTABLE} Happy, Spring Mantel!

Ready for spring? I am! Come on sunshine!

Here is our spring mantel. I'm thinking about adding a few of the banners I made to the front door.
Maybe a fun spring wreath is in order too?!

I came across some cute banners at target, but wasn't sold on the colors, so I decided to make my own, I'm like that aren't I :). Anyway, here are links to my banners...

Would love to hear if you use them! Thanks!

Happy spring!

Leprechaun Trap!

Last night we finshed up Little Misses leprechaun trap. I love this idea! What a fun why to let the little ones enjoy the holiday, right! I can't wait to see all mischief our little leprechaun  has up his sleeve.

If you're new to this trend like I am, Family Fun has a wounderful post to bring you up to speed.

March photo a day

Hello! Are you ready for another month of photo-taking-fun? I am. FATMUMSLIM has posted MARCH’s challenge. I'm ready and actually really enjoying these challenges. How about you?

Here's how to play:

♥ Starting on March 1st take a photo each day with inspiration from the prompt. For example prompt 1 is 'up', so take a photo looking up. Or of the word 'up'. Or something that lifts your mood 'up'. It it totally up to you how you want to interpret it.

♥ Once you've taken your photo you can share it on Instagram, Facebook {on your own profile or business page}, Twitter, Flickr, your blog, Pinterest, Tumblr or even just keep them in a folder on your desktop. If you're sharing on Twitter or Instagram add the hashtag #Marchphotoaday so others can find your photos too.

Note: For day 20 you'll see that it says 'before / after'. Again, you can interpret this however you like. I thought it would be cool for people to use an app like picframe to show two photos in one. It could be a meal before eating and the plate after. It could be anything! If you don't have any iPhone or don't want to buy an app - just use your imagination and either take two photos or work it into just one.

I look forward to seeing all the photos for March photo a day.

Are you in?
