Hello again all! Kari here with a fun up-cycling craft to keep the kiddos busy this summer. We all need ways to beat the heat, and keep the kids entertained indoors , so why not try this up-cycling craft? Not only is it easy and fun, but the kids will love being involved, and in the end, they’ll have fun toys to keep them playing happily all the live long day!
Who remembers and loves color by number? Some of my earliest memories as a little girl are of me waking up WAY before my parents were wanting to, and my mom handing me the crayons and coloring books. I still remember my preschool-aged little self sitting in the dimly lit, quiet house coloring while everyone else slept. Funny how things stick with you. I’m still an early-riser, and I still LOVE to color!
I don’t know about you guys but at our house during summer break, we love getting our craft on!
To kick off our summer crafting fun, we decided to make some whimsical little animal necklaces. Its a simple, kid-friendly project that you can help them make in under an hour! They also make great gifts!
Happy upcoming Fourth of July! I’m so excited to share this fun home decor project with you. Not only is this piece super easy and inexpensive, it’s also one you can get the kids involved in! Nothing makes a decor piece more special than knowing little hands helped to create it.
Hello again! Creative Carmella here, and I am excited to share a beautiful and really simple, DIY personalized teacher gift that you can make in minutes!
Antique Window Makeover – making it in the mountainsIn our old home, I had this lovely vintage window hanging over our fireplace. It’s so full of chippy rustic charm and I really love the personality that it injects into the room! Right from the start, I liked the white paint on the front, but I have to admit, I wasn’t exactly fond of the dark green colour on the side and back. Time for a makeover me-thinks!
This is Sharon from Lemon Squeezy, and today’s download is more of an Easter craft with a side of download. This is a really simple activity that both my 4 year old and my 10 year old love to do.
I don’t know about you, but I am officially over winter! Spring fever is hard to catch with all this cold and snowy weather we’ve had (and I live in the south!) but I’ve started to dream of green grass, flowers, and bright and sunny days anyway.
I love adding a little extra color to our home this time of year, it gives me hope that color is soon to be on they way 🙂 Today, I wanted to share some quick ways to add color to your decor on a budget.
Happy New Year OSSS readers! It’s Brooke from Blissful Roots. I’m so excited to on board for another year here at Or So She Says. I love spending time with all of you once a month, and cannot wait to see what the new year has in store.
Today, I have a simple winter art activity you can do with your kiddos. My boys have been making this whimsical snow globe art project for years now, and for some reason I’ve never posted them before. I’m a bit of a snowflake fanatic, and so I try to squeeze in as many snowflake activities (check out our beautiful symmetrical snowflake art here) during the wintery month of January as I can.
The fun part about this art project is that each globe can be as individual as the creator. The globes are kind of like snowflakes themselves- no two are ever exactly alike. And they are incredibly easy to make!
Hey there, and Happy New Year!! It’s Carmella back again for another year of fun on OSSS. I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and happy holidays too! My kiddos and I have settled into a nice Christmas break routine of lazy, pajama days that have involved lots of crafty projects too. And if you know me, those are my favorite kind of days. 🙂
Our ten year old is our resident artist, she’ rarely ever seen not doodling something. Do you have one of those too??
Today I am sharing how to turn some of those precious doodles into personalized artwork you can hang on your walls… It’s a DIY canvas art project that’s a lot easier than you may think.
Happy Monday, friends! It’s the 10th of the month and you know what that means, right?!? It’s our 10th blog hop! The theme for this month was SNOWFLAKES. I admit, it was a tricky one for me. I put it off as long as possible, called everyone I knew for ideas, and ended up deciding that the best thing to do is just take a trip to Michael’s and wander the aisles for inspiration. It worked. Okay, let me stop here for a minute and tell you… awesome deal…
The classic Thanksgiving table uses colors of orange, red, yellow and browns for centerpiece decorations. Take a new approach to your Thanksgiving table and pair modern colors with traditional table settings.
This is Darleen from Darling Darleen , and I really feel that your table setting should work for you, for your style and even for your room color scheme. I have a lot of blues and grays in my dining room, so I am naturally drawn to those colors. One way to bring your color scheme in is by creating wreath centerpieces with flowers, berries and leaves. You may have seen Thanksgiving wreath centerpiece idea on wedding tables, but why not do it for your Thanksgiving table?
These wreaths are simple to create and perfect to adorn with colors you prefer through botanical decorations. Tuck Spanish moss into a grapevine wreath. Add dried flowers, berries, leaves, twigs, thistles to your liking. Come on over and see what I did today!
