Grab the following for this fast and fabulous creAcipe!

 Grab the following for this fast and fabulous creAcipe!

Glass Vase
Spray paint color of choice

Step 1: You will need adhesive that will securely hold the lace.  We originally tried tape which didn’t work, so we used a dot of hot glue.  It held it well, but we think that the best glue would be some repositionable spray adhesive.  We plan to retry this in the future!  We will update you.

Step 2: Once the lace is secure, you can simply start spray painting. Completely spray vase.

Step 3:  Once sprayed let sit for 2-3 mins then carefully remove the lace.

Step 4: Enjoy!!!

Framed Fingerprints

One day I(Bry) was cuddling with one of my little ones.  I looked at those little hands intertwined in mine and I recognized that special  moment as bitter sweet.  I love those little fingers but I knew that they would not be little forever.  This project is in honor of those moments when those little fingers leave their hand-print on our hearts.  As I reflect back on these days, I hope to remember that is was the simple moments when their little hands where intertwined in mine that mattered the most.

This project will take 10 mins tops.
So Lets Create this VERY simple project!!!

For this creAcipe you will need the following items:

Small Picture Frame
1 sheet of Cardstock that coordinates with the frame
Crafting Pen
Ink Pad

Step 1:  Remove the back of the frame

Step 2:  Using the back of the frame as a guide, trace a square onto the cardstock.

Step 3:  Cut out the square.

Step 4: Using your craft pen freehand section onto the cardstock.  One section per fingerprint.  

Step 5:  Now it is time for the fingerprinting! So grab your ink and your little culprits!!!  

Step 6:  I would strongly recommend writing the names and ages on the back of the cardstock.  I always think I am going to remember, but I don't.

We were at our local thrift store and came across these fun multicolored candlesticks.  When we saw them we knew we had to have 'em.  They were just way to fun to pass up.  We knew right away that they were going to be turned into cake stands.  Can't you just imagine these set out on your Easter table, at a baby shower or at a birthday party!!!  The possibilities are endless!!!

So Lets Create!!!
This creAcipe will begin with the following items:

Candlestick               Hot Glue Gun
Platter                        Hot Glue Sticks

Step 1:  Preheat your hot glue gun!

Step 2:  While hot glue heating it is prep time.
-Wash and Dry your candlestick and platter to ensuring that they are completely clean and dry.

Step 3:  It is time to assemble! 

*Take the superglue and glue around the outside edge of the candlestick

*Next, take the glue gun, pull the trigger, and let the glue come flowin’ out!!!  Put a good amount on the top of the candlestick.

*Take the platter and place on top of the candlestick.  Apply pressure for about 15-30 seconds.
