DIY 3D Frames With The Most Adorable Floral Crowns

DIY 3D FLOWER FRAMES

Spring has sprung, which makes us so so happy. Give us all the flower projects because the snow is on it’s way out, and green leaves and beautiful blooms are going to take center stage once again.

We’ve always wanted to wear floral crowns. I can’t believe we haven’t done it in real life yet. We really need to add that to our bucket list. But, now at least a photo of us with floral crowns lives on our walls, which is enough to make us smile.

All the how-to details are on Momtastic. Mom would love one for Mother’s Day, just sayin’…

DIY RAINBOW SOAP (2)

Our daughters dream of sliding down colorful rainbows, playing with fairies and sparkling pixie dust, and riding on unicorns. So, it’s no surprise they were head over heels in love with out latest craft for their bedrooms, a DIY unicorn letter. It’s unicorn magic in one simple letter.

Every little girls needs one…all the details on how to make them are at Momtastic. By the way, it’s a totally doable craft even for the most non-crafty person you know. Try it!

DIY Lightbox With Twinkle Lights

DIY LIGHTBOX_for kids and tweens-twinkle-lights-room-decor

Most (if not all) of you probably put the Christmas decorations away until next November/December. The decor is fun and festive, but it was beginning to clutter my mind (and house) with chaos, so mine went down shortly after New Year’s day. But, I did keep all the twinkle lights out…because I love the twinkle year-round. I made a DIY lightbox for my daughter, and it’s been shining bright in her room ever since!

You don’t need a fancy machine or equipment for this project, which means it’s a must-do! You can make for your son or daughter, and use whatever quote inspires you (or your kids), because all of our kids have a bright light to share with the world. As parents, we just need to give them the guidance and freedom to follow their light, and the confidence to never let anyone or anything dim it. Sometimes our kids need a reminder of their light, and this DIY lightbox is a good one.

The full tutorial is at Momtastic, so be sure to check it out here.

Happy New Year. We hope it’s a bright year for each and every one of you! Keep shining bright!

Note: Thanks to Oriental Trading, who sent the Vellum paper for a different Halloween project. So happy the vellum can be used so so many other projects, like this one. 

Gnome For the Holidays

diy gnome wine toppers

We love our wine, and a glass of wine is better when shared with a friend, that’s for sure. Give wine to friends and family this holiday season, or have friends over and make sure wine is ready at the bar, with these adorable DIY gnome wine bottle toppers. They add that extra touch of homemade love and cuteness to an ordinary bottle of wine, and they are so easy to make. No sewing required.

Momtastic has all the details here.

Thanks to Cole and Dainer  for sharing some of the fluffy faux fur from her amazing blankets for the gnome beards. The fur on her blankets is like heaven on my family’s skin when we have snuggle sessions.

Cheers to a happy holiday!

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

modern-and-plaid-christmas-decorations-in-a-small-space

I (Jessica) shared tips on how to make a small space feel like home for Christmas on Real Simple, and not only was it a dream to write for Real Simple (pinch me), it was an added bonus to keep the holiday decor I bought and made for the post. I’ve been in the Christmas mode since October – I like to think of it as just extending the joyful season!

Part of this photo shoot was homemade, and the other half store-bought, just the way I like it. I always love a homemade touch, but life was simplified by buying the rest. One of my favorite parts of this shoot was the small businesses in the Vail Valley I got to work with, such as the Cole and Dainer (blanket) and the LA Antler Co antlers. Jenna made the cute Merry and Bright printable (available in our Etsy shop  here for $5, as well as two others).  I made the wreaths, color-blocked the white houses from Target with black paint, and I’m just mad for those plaid paper fans on top. The cozy fireplace from Home Depot has been keeping us warm, too.
