Cherry Decorated Wrapping Paper
Hi everybody. I hope that everybody is having a good week !!
I found this lovely idea here Hand-stamped wrapping paper..
This is a very simple idea for wrapping paper. In my wrapping paper I used red acrylic paint, a pencil, a black felt pen, a red ribbon, scotch tape and some brown packing paper.
For the little dots I used the top of the pencil
Hi everybody. I hope you have had a very good Sunday with your family.
Yesterday I made a post about my little garden and inspired by that post I decided to make this little flower arrangement for my lunch table in the celebration of father’s day. I bought a bouquet of orange flowers in tone with the summer season, and I used this little bowl which means a lot to me and my husband because it was a wedding present.
To make this flower arrangement you just need a bouquet of the flower of your choice, water, transparent scotch tape and a bowl.
Fill the bowl half way with fresh water. Attach the scotch tape making a criss-cross in the way you can see in the picture bellow.
Then you can start to put the flowers in.
Finally you have your flower table arrangement.
1- Citrus Calamondin – You can put this plant outside during summer, but you need to keep inside for winter, Autumn,and most of the spring, this plant likes sunny sheltered position.
We love plants here in my house and inspired by my friend blogger Ingrid NowAtHomeMom. We decided to show everybody some plants that my son and my daughter chose to decorate our patio.
Today has been very windy here in South England which you will notice in some of my pictures – the plants were always moving. I am giving the names of all plants that we have, so you can get inspired to make your own little garden .
I don’t know a child that doesn’t love plants, to play with or to look at. They become amazed of the miracle of a growing plant.
2-Regal Pelargoniums- Thrives in sunny position
3-Erica Arborea ‘Albert Gold’- Brigthen golden foliage all year, choose a open sunny situation.
4-Viola- Ideal for hanging baskets, thrives in sun or partial shade.
5-Heather- Plant in sun or partial shade.
Father’s Day Greeting Card
I found a very good idea for Father’s Greeting Day.
The children can make this lovely card for their Daddy, it is very cheap and most of the resources can be found at home.
This idea come from here Father’s Day Shirt Card – JumpStart.
You just need some colored paper cards, scissors, glue or double sided tape. In my card we used old newspaper to make the tie.
As you can see in the picture, you have to fold a card in half, cut a piece of stripe about 20cm long and 3cm width for the collar of the shirt and fold it the way you can see in the picture above. Draw and cut a shape on a tie and attach on your card so easy.
And you have your Father’s Day card, which you can decorate inside.
I hope enjoy a happy Father’s Day with your Dad.
Good Morning everybody. I hope everybody is having a good weekend !!
My daughter and I decided to make a watercolor picture as you know we are not an experts, but we always give a try just to play.
In this picture we use a popular technique today which is to use a glue like Hi-Tack glue to make a texture on the picture.
This is what you need to make this picture: Watercolor paper, watercolor paint, Hi-tack glue, a pencil, a little sponge, water.
First you to draw the picture on your watercolor paper and then cover the lines of your drawing with a not too thick line of hi-tack glue, let it dry overnight.
When the glue is dry, you can start to paint with the watercolor paint.
We used a sponge to make some grass effect on the bottom of the picture.
I found this idea here Fabric Covered Books (creativitE by Erin Bassett). and I think that is a good idea if you want make your favorite notebook look special and it is so easy.
This is what you need: A good quality glue, a old plastic credit card, fabrics, scissors and a notebook to cover.
Apply the glue on the surface of the notebook, and using the plastic card spread the glue evenly.
Attach the fabric and make sure that the fabric is flat without any air bubbles, you can use a rolling pin for that.
Here you can see the cuts that you need to make in the fabric.
Here you can see the folds that you need to make.
Have a good weekend everybody !!
Hi everyone, I hope everybody is having a good week !!
I found this little sewing project for the little ones and I want to share with you all.
This idea came from here A first sewing project | Skip To My Lou. It is very easy we just need to have some colored foam, yarn, scissors and a hole puncher.
I used a bowl to draw the shape of the bag and cookies cutters to draw the shape of the hearts. Then you just need to make the holes for the children to sew.
