Crafts, Crafts and More Crafts!

>> Friday, February 11, 2011

We've been pretty busy here doing our crafty thing!  I've got a list of projects that I want to do and have everything sorted out and ready to go -- I just need to find time! 

But I DID find some time to work on these awesome crafts with my girls!

Valentine Heart Door Hangers:

I took two pieces of foam board and gave one to each girl along with a pile of Valentine foam stickers.  And they went to town!  When they were done, I poked some holes in the foam with a screwdriver, threaded some ribbon through and let them hang them on their doors!





Mailboxes:

I found these cute foam mailboxes at Michael's on clearance.  They were so cute that I decided to have the girls decorate them in a way that they can use them year-round -- especially with My Marine scheduled to be gone....a lot....over the next few months.



Melted Crayon Art:

I've seen this done all over the blogging world, but never really tried it before until last week.  Nudgie didn't like this particular activity, but Nani LOVED it!  I loved seeing her creativity come alive!




Valentine T-Shirts:

I wanted to make something special for Nani's Valentine party at school on Monday.  So I had these cute pink t-shirts from Old Navy and a fabric remnant from JoAnn's with hearts.  Add a little Heat and Bond, and I've got two cute little heart shirts for my girls!



Stay tuned for more crafts coming soon!

So many great crafts! That melted crayon art is really cool, and not something I would have thought of doing! I bet my kids will love it!
