  • Project: day 73: outdoors we will go/ super easy valentine’s centerpiece (tulips and conversation hearts 😉
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1
  • Would I do it again? yes, in fact I will be doing it again and again for each and every season! Halloween (candy corn), Easter (Jelly Beans), 4th of July (red, white, and blue M&M’s?), Turkey day (pumpkin candy corn?), Christmas ( red and green M&M’s?). Maybe I’ll come up with some better ideas, but it’s too easy and adorable not to do!
  • What I would do differently: nothing at all except to change it up each season!
  • Items used: large or small conversation hearts (Brach’s or Sweetheart’s work great!), pink tulips, small vase to hold flowers, and large vase to hold small vase as well as the candy 😉

Until ipinterest tomorrow!

Project: day 41: get crafty/ diy Minnie mouse centerpiece, table decor for Morgan’s birthday party!
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 2 ( I cannot tie a bow very straight or nice to save my life! Adam did the one on the left, and I did the one on the right. Enough said.
• Would I do it again? yes! It turned out so cute, and I will find a way to use them again…somehow!
• What I would do differently: we ended up using chopsticks broken in half to attach the base to the oasis (my toothpicks just were not cutting it!)
• Items used: green floral balls spray-painted with a black satin finish spray paint (both from Hobby Lobby), pink and black gross-grain polka dot ribbon for the bow, black and white polka-dot handkerchief for a quick runner (it’s not her birthday for a few more weeks, I’m just getting ready for it!), toothpicks to hold the ears to the face, and broken chopsticks to attach the oasis base to the face!
until ipinterest tomorrow!
