This is such a cute idea for your kiddos! I would have done this with my preschoolers, but it’s good for older kids too.
Kids love to marble paint! And every design looks great! Add a little gold glitter to look even more festive!
Looking for some snacks? This looks delicious!
I actually made this one for my Bunco group! They loved it! Just be sure to use small cups or buy lots of Skittles! There aren’t many red ones in the bag.
Maybe you need a little healthier snack? I love the rainbow!
Or maybe all green!
Here is a cute wreath to hang on your door or in your house. And it’s all made from the Dollar Tree!

I’ve enjoyed seeing some of the Valentine ideas I have been seeing, so I thought I would share a few of my own. I am even adding a new DIY for you!
Get your Valentine’s favorite gum and candy and put it all together in this cute little basket! Add some pretty ribbon as an accent.
Here is another candy idea, but with flowers! It’s a great way to up-cycle a tin can too! This would make a great teacher gift!
Here is another project with flowers, this time shaping them into a heart! Of course, you could use any color you want!
This is a little simple project to decorate your home for Valentine’s Day! You could use blocks and letters to spell out whatever you want.
5. Stamped Heart Treat Bag
Here is another sweet idea to make for your Valentine! You could fill the little bag with stickers, jewelry or candy!
I started with a plain muslin bag, pink paint, heart shaped cookie cutter and foam dauber. I wanted to use a rubber stamp, but I couldn’t locate one in my stash, so a cookie cutter was my next choice. It worked great! Just make sure to wash it well before you make your Valentine cookies! 🙂 I added a little bit of paint to the foam dauber and added it inside the heart. Be sure to put a piece of paper or cardboard inside the bag so the paint doesn’t go through.
Once the paint was dry, I got out my letter stamps and some black ink. I picked out the letters I wanted to use. I started with the word ‘love.’
I pressed the stamp into the ink pad and then pressed it onto the bag and the heart. I didn’t worry about keeping the letters straight or even. Obviously!
Don’t they look cute! They are perfect for adding just a little something for your special valentine!
Aren’t these fortune cookies the cutest!! I found them at the Dollar Tree and they come with a special fortune inside. I can’t wait to see what the fortunes will be!
I hope you all have a wonderful Valentines Day! If you create one of these projects, I would love to know! Have a great week!

Good morning! We are back today with another idea for the Twelve Days of Christmas-Wreaths! Here is a link back to the original post where you can see all the other hosts and their ideas! Don’t forget the inlinkz and the giveaway at the end of this post!
I love the coastal look, which most of you know already, so I made a Coastal Buoy for my Christmas Wreath! This will go much better with my decor!
Here are the supplies you will need:
- Green or white foam circle form
- White paint (optional)
- Strips of cotton or muslin fabric
- Mod Podge
- Silver Duct Tape
- White paint and whatever other color you want to use
- Christmas greens, berries, pinecones, ect.
I bought enough supplies to make 2 wreaths, but you only have to buy enough for one. I found these green styrofoam wreath forms at the Dollar Tree. Because they were green, I painted them white first, but if you buy white ones, you can skip this step.
While the wreaths were drying, I cut strips of muslin to wrap around the wreath. I cut them about 1 inch wide, but they don’t have to all be perfect or the same.
I wrapped each strip around the wreath overlapping as I went. When one ended, I overlapped the next one and continued all the way around. Once I got to the end, I used a little bit of hot glue to keep it from coming undone.
I brushed Mod Podge over the whole thing. Since mine will be hanging outside on the door, this will protect it a little bit, plus it looks a little more finished.
When the Mod Podge was dry, I used painters tape to mark off 4 areas. I will be painting 2 areas turquoise and 2 white, so this will keep the paint from going into the other area. I will be covering the taped area later, so it won’t matter that it’s not painted.
I used a turquoise with some sparkle in it since it’s for the holidays.
Next I cut strips of duct tape and then cut each piece in half lengthwise. These pieces I wrapped around the wreath on the unpainted areas.
I found the perfect rope at The Dollar Tree too! I couldn’t believe they had this. It was even called Nautical!
I made some loose loops, 4 of them and then wrapped another piece of rope around the middle, securing it tightly.
I also tied knots at the end of the loose pieces so it wouldn’t fray.
I used a separate piece of rope to go around the outside of the wreath. I loosely wrapped it around the wreath and secured it with duct tape over the other duct tape. I matched up the ends and secured them too.
For the greenery, I used 2 pieces of greens with berries and a small one with the rope pieces. I placed 2 going up and one going down and I tied them together with twine.
I laid the greenery on the back of the wreath and hot glued it in various places until it was secure.
Once they were attached, I placed the rope bow on the inside of the wreath and tied it on with twine too. I also added a twine loop for the back. I hooked it around one of the bent stems.
I took it outside and hung it on my porch! It’s the perfect touch to my coastal home!
I also made one to go inside the house. I can’t wait to find the perfect spot for it!
I love how it turned out and is perfect for my front porch! What do you think? Let me see what wreaths you have made!
Don’t forget about the giveaway!
Thank you for coming by today! Our next post will be a DIY Ornament. See you next time!
Good morning! I’ve lost track of what day we are on, but I do know I am sharing my advent calendar with you and I love how it turned out! But first, go here to go back to the 50 Christmas Ideas and see what the other hosts are sharing. Also, don’t forget the Inlinkz and the giveaway at the bottom of the post!
First, a little history about advent. I got my information from a wonderful blogger, Yvonne over at Stonegable. She is an excellent writer and designer! Please head over to see her site. She explains advent wonderfully. Anyways, the meaning of advent is ‘the coming.’ For Christians, ‘the coming’ is the coming of Christ. His first coming was over 2000 years ago as a baby in a manger. When he was a man, he died on the cross to save us from our sins. His second coming will be when he takes all those who believe and ask forgiveness, to heaven with him to live forever.
Most symbols of advent are a wreath with 4 candles and each candle is a symbol-for hope, peace, love and joy. Advent is a time to reflect on all of our blessings and to remind ourselves about the true meaning of Christmas.
Learning all this information about advent, I decided my calendar would have just 4 bags, one to represent each symbol-hope, peace, love and joy. The wonderful little bags I used were graciously given to me by BurlapFabric. The linen material is so beautiful! But I am getting ahead of myself!
I started out with this cupboard door. I don’t even remember where it came from! But I knew how I wanted to transform it. I started by removing the hinges and then spray-painted the whole door with Rustoleum 2X Satin Heirloom White. I didn’t worry about the patched holes in the middle because I knew I was going to be covering them.
Once the door was dry, I cut out a piece of pretty fabric scrap I had to fit in the middle. I love the crocheted lace going through the fabric.
I pinned it to the right size and then ironed the edges.
I hot-glued the fabric onto the middle section of the door.
Next I cut a small piece of burlap that I wanted to center on top of the crocheted fabric.
I frayed a little bit of the edges of the burlap, then I stitched around the edge to make sure it didn’t keep fraying any further. I pulled out a few extras that were beyond the stitching after finishing the edge.
I ironed the burlap onto the shiny side of freezer paper.
I created the quote in the font I wanted on PicMonkey. I saved it onto my computer. I loaded the freezer paper into the printer and then printed out my quote. I couldn’t believe how well it worked!
I used spray adhesive to attach the burlap to the crocheted fabric.
I found this cute white pom-pom trim at Walmart and knew it would look great on here. It reminds me of little snowballs! I hot glued it around the inner edge of the cupboard door.
I found these knobs at Hobby Lobby on clearance. Look at the price! I knew as soon as I saw them they would be perfect for this.
I measured out the bottom edge of the door and penciled in even marks to drill holes for the knobs. I drilled the holes and then placed the knobs in.
On these cute little muslin bags I received from Burlap Fabric, I decided to stencil numbers 1 through 4 on them. I used black fabric paint.
I hardly put any paint on my brush and dabbed it over the fabric.
I love the vintage look of the bags!
I filled the bags with little special items and hung them from the knobs. I don’t have any little children at home or I would have filled them with little toys or candy.
I hung my calendar right by my table, so if I was reading an advent story on one of the 4 Sundays, the bags would be right there. They make such a great reminder of the real reason for the season.
I’m excited to have this calendar to put up each year!
This project took me a little bit to get done, but I’m so happy with the results! Do you celebrate Advent? I would love to hear how you and your family celebrate!
