Jelly beans and Easter go together like…soup and sandwich? A horse and carriage? Peanut butter and jelly? Take your pick, but no matter how you spin it, jelly beans are the perfect treat to hand out to the little ones if you’re hosting an Easter egg hunt or a brunch. There’s no shame in handing out ziplock bags, but if you’re looking for a way to step up your game, I’ve got the answer.
Here’s a brain teaser for you: what’s better than giving your sweetheart a Valentine’s Day gift? Giving them multiple gifts! And what’s even better than multiple gifts? Bonus points if you said gifts that are almost as fun for you as they are for your Valentine. Love tokens are the perfect way to check both of these boxes.
If there’s one thing that I can never resist, it’s a good pun. Luckily for me, they’re practically a requirement for Valentine’s Day cards. I had a lot of fun designing these cheeky cards, which are perfect for your little ones to give to their classmates and friends.
Whether it’s used for collecting eggs during an Easter egg hunt or as an everyday carryall, this bunny crossbody bag is perfect for spring. Although this project will require a little bit more time, I promise that the extra work will be worth it when you see the smile on your little one’s face!.
Every Easter, I look forward to dying eggs with my daughter. I love setting up the egg hunt on Easter morning and watching her search high and low for the last few that, for some reason, are always nearly impossible to find. As I started planning for this year’s egg hunt, it occurred to me that the only thing missing from our annual event is the Easter basket. We’ve always gotten by with using one of her small baskets that functions as her pencil holder for the remaining 364 days of the year. While this basket has always gotten the job done, I wanted to change things up a bit this year. The best part is that you can create one of these adorable bunny baskets for your egg hunt in just under an hour. Let’s hop to it!
If you’re looking to make your Valentine’s Day tablescape special without spending an arm and a leg on items that can only be used once a year, I’ve got your back. These heart-shaped plates are adorable. What’s more, they are also inexpensive and easy to make, making them contenders for the DIY triple crown. All you need is a heart template and air dry clay and you will be well on your way to having a plate that will steal the show (and everyone’s hearts).
Who can forget the winged keys from the first Harry Potter movie! So naturally, when I decided to create a Harry Potter Christmas tree, I immediately starting thinking of a way to make a winged key ornament. It turned out to be easier than I thought. Excluding the curing time for the clay and the drying time for the paint, the entire project takes about 30 minutes. Bonus- you can relax on the couch with a glass of wine in between steps.
I’m going to go out on a limb and make a bold statement. A Harry Potter Christmas tree is not complete without a reference to Platform 9 3/4. I’m sure there’s an amazing tree somewhere out there that proves me wrong, but there’s no way that I was willing to take that risk These ornaments are easy to make, so put on your favorite Netflix show and let’s get to work!
When we started reading the Harry Potter books at bedtime, I had no clue how much my daughter would come to love them. Seven books and eight movies later, she is a huge Harry Potter fan. She knows the books inside and out. I’ve loved sharing the books with her and watching her fall in love with the world of Harry Potter page by page. And that’s why I couldn’t resist surprising her with a Harry Potter-themed Christmas tree!
