Cardboard Houndstooth Taxidermy Unicorn Head

Well hey, hey, HEY! my friends! How the heck are ya? I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and Mother's Day! Last weekend I worked on a little craft project for my daughter's room. It's a little quirky and random, so if it isn't your thang, I totally understand. I like weird and quirky though so I'm pretty stoked about this conversation starter. Check it: I am seriously Goo-Goo Ga-Ga over Cardboard Taxidermy Heads right now. Like, I think they are just so cool I squeal whenever I see them.

Cheap & Easy Stenciled Tray tutorial

Last week when I showed you the Mini Monogram Pedestals I mentioned I had made two more projects using my Martha Stewart Crafts supplies. I had so much fun crafting I ended up creating three separate projects and then chose my favorite to go with the Plaid promotion. Well, here's the 2nd of the three crafts I made... Are you ready for it? I found this tiny pink tray at the Target Dollar Spot (I think it was $2.50) and thought it was so cute! It's just perfect for my daughter's room to house all her little lotions and perfumes. I used some Spray Adhesive for Stencils … [Read more...]

Novelty Nutcrackers, Dollar Store Style

West Elm has the cutest Novelty Nutcrackers! Only problem is, they are TWENTY NINE BUCKS! And if you want the jumbo one it's $59! Ouch. I'm not cheap, I'm thrifty! I {lurve} them though. So I plotted a scheme to get me surme o' those there nutcrackers. I found these hideous things at the Dollar Tree. I don't think "hideous" is a strong enough word to describe... The hair! The hair is what kills me. I ripped that hair off quicker than you can say "holy-hell-that-looks-horrible" and gave them all a good coat of spray paint primer. Then I took … [Read more...]
