Mother's Day Handprint Flower 2016

I’m a sucker for anything handprint from my girls. I love seeing the growth from year to year through their hands. You probably know this because I like to post project and gift ideas using handprints. Of course I had to make another Mother’s Day Handprint Flower Printable for 2016.

These always make a fun gift for grandmas too because it’s one of a kinda artwork from their favorite children.

They are quick but can be messy so I suggest having some wet wipes nearby. Also, clothes that are okay to have paint on them, and a surface that could get paint on it. ūüėČ

Other then the suggestions above, you’re going to need the free printable, which you can download below, some paint, a paper plate to put the paint on, and a paint brush.

Paint your child’s hand so that you can control the amount. Then they can place the hand on a stem.

You can also let them use their creativity to make flowers with their fingers or thumbs.

This can get on the messy side so beware and have your wipes handy.

I loved watching how she made each flower.

And there you have it. You can have each child complete one page each, or have each child do only one flower. This project is so fun and each one is unique.

Pirate Party Table

I recently put together a quick and easy Nautical Party Tablescape using the Recollections‚ĄĘ Craft It‚ĄĘ¬†party¬†d√©cor items from Michaels. All the decorations came together in less than a half an hour, thanks to the convenience of the line.¬†Now that’s a really big deal, cause you know the “party moms” out there? The ones who start planning birthday parties 6 months in advance and spend hours and hours creating and decorating for that party? Whelp, I’m not that mom. So the fact that this went together so quickly with so little effort is a really big deal! I’m all about the shortcuts!

Nautical Party

The cake topper was made with 2 skewers, a piece of bakers twine with flags from the line attached with glue dots.

Pirate Party

The same flags were attached to skewers to create these donut kabobs. I think the crumb donut holes look like they’re covered in sand

Quick Ideas for Nautical Party

The blue banner was create from a pack of patterned triangles that I attached to baker’s twine with mini clothespins

Vintage Trailer Remodel - Retro Trailer - This is SO cute! Love this glamper!!

I’m Amy.¬† I work with The Crafting Chicks on the back side of their blog.¬† Years ago my cousins and I had a little blog to share all of our crafty projects.¬† We got busy and the blog disappeared.¬† But I still love to craft.¬† And I still get to work with the wonderful Crafting Chicks!

My parents have a piece of property that they stay at over the summers.¬† The grand kids just LOVE to go camping out there too.¬† Think…. 4 wheelers, zipline and archery range… yep.¬† The kids (and adults) LOVE it!

Last summer my parents were given a 1972 Rancho el Rae Camper Trailer.¬† The idea was to slap some paint on it and turn it into a guest house for their property.¬† As soon as I saw this trailer, I knew it needed to become a Glamper!¬† Let me show you what we did… (with links to tutorials that will help you to do the same!)

Retro Camping Trailer Remodel

Before

The base of the trailer was in fairly good condition.¬† But boy oh boy, was it dated.¬† (Don’t you just love that carpet?!¬† Yikes!)¬† We liked the aqua trim.¬† But the dark paneling, carpet and floral print just had to go.

Vintage Trailer Remodel - Retro Trailer - This is SO cute! Love this glamper!!

 

After

What a difference!  Oh it turned out SO cute!  The color.  The light.  The retro feel.

Love. Love. Love!

Patching Holes

If you’ve got an old trailer, you know that you’ve got to do some repairs.¬† We had some water damage.¬† So my amazing Dad jumped in and started patching holes.¬† Here is a great tutorial to walk you through the process:¬† Patching Holes.

Camper Trailer Remodel - Patching holes

Paint

A little bit of paint makes a HUGE difference.  The white opened up the space and gave it a completely different feel.  The red drawers gave it that pop of color we were looking for.

Painting a Camper Trailer

Flooring

The first thing to come out was that carpet. Yikes!

We just fell in love with the black and white checkered tiles!  So much easier to clean and so fun!

Here is a great tutorial for installing new flooring:  Trailer Flooring.

Reupholstering Cushions

Our polka dot cushions turned out beautiful!¬† We used Riley Blake Fabric.¬† The cushions are a Home Decor fabric called Medium White Dot on Black. ¬† If you haven’t used their fabric before, you are missing out!¬† Oh my!¬† It’s like sewing with clouds.¬† Truly.¬† (I just did another project without Riley Blake Fabric… it was like working with sand paper.¬† Awful!¬† I’ll be sticking with Riley Blake.)

Luckily, the kitchen table cushions were in great condition once we flipped them over.  Now the Aqua color shows beautifully.

My Mom tackled the bedroom cushions.¬† And they were a beast.¬† But she’s a miracle worker and they turned out adorable!!¬† The couch that folds into a bed was super complicated.

Here is a tutorial to help you with cushions:  Cushion Tutorial.

Camper Trailer Cushion Remodel

Curtains

The curtains are Riley Blake fabric as well.¬† We needed to double the material on the curtains, since the windows don’t have blinds.¬† We wanted the trailer to be light and bright during the day, have privacy at night, and keep the sun from peaking in during the early morning hours.¬† We made curtains ties to hold the curtains open during the day.¬† We attached the ties to the curtain on one side (so they don’t get lost) and they just velcro together in the back.

In the bedroom part of the trailer we used Four Corners Teal, Medium Dots Black, and White Swiss Dot on Black.

In the kitchen part of the trailer we used: Small Red Gingham, Medium Dots Black, and White Swiss Dot on Black.

We also made some accents pillows with Medium Dots Aqua/Red.

Painting the outside of a trailer

At first we had visions of a bright white trailer with a red stripe down the side.¬† Maybe a few polka dots here and there.¬† Then we decided NOT to paint the outside of the trailer.¬† Let me tell you why…¬† This trailer is, right now, sitting on mountain property surrounded by 5 feet of snow.¬† We can’t access the trailer for a good portion of the year.¬† That means that we can’t check on it to make sure that it hasn’t been broken into or being lived in (yikes!) as often as we would like to.¬† So we decided that it would be best to keep the outside of the trailer looking a little run down.¬† We don’t want the whole mountain to know what a darling trailer it has become!

If you want to paint the outside of your trailer, here is a great tutorial:  Painting the outside of a trailer.

Vintage Trailer Remodel - Retro Trailer - This is SO cute! Love this glamper!!

The circle stick-on mirrors are from Amazon.

The adorable red teapot is from  Bed, Bath and Beyond.

The plates, table runner and vase are from IKEA.

The furry animal friends were added by the grand kids and are from KOHLS.

Vintage Trailer Remodel - Retro Trailer - This is SO cute! Love this glamper!!

Do you have a trailer that is just begging for a little TLC?¬† What are you waiting for?¬† It isn’t as hard as you think and it’s so rewarding to transform an entire space!

Happy Glamping!

 


28116_MS_MM_AprilChallenge_s

Our Michael’s Makers challenge for the month was to create, or convince our husband and children to create, a Mother’s Day gift. I tried and tried to convince my husband that this would be a great project to tackle. But he didn’t bite. So, it was up to me to make something my mom would like for Mother’s Day. I’m pretty sure my mom loves her grandkids more than her own kids, so I made a Birthstone Locket with all 11 grandkids being represented by the birthstone of their birth month.

Birthstone Locket Mother's Day Gift Idea

I actually saw something similar to this being sold online a handful of years ago, but boy we’re they spendy! I’m sure they contained real jewels and precious metals, but they didn’t fit in our budget.

Birthstone Locket Mother's Day Gift Idea

So when I saw this line from Blue Moon Beads at Michaels I was excited. Now, in case the words “acrylic charms” don’t alert you, these are not real jewels. They are however inexpensive and when it takes 4 packages of birthstones to take care of all the grandkids you’ll be happy they don’t cost a ton.

Birthstone Locket Supplies

Birthstone Locket Mother's Day Gift Idea

This project is so easy that my kids, or husband, or kids and husband could handle it. The locket is magnetic, so begin by popping it open.

Birthstone Locket Mother's Day Gift Idea

Get the birthstones ready to go. My initial thought was to dump all the packages in a bowl, but then I realized that I don’t know what stone goes with what month. I also realized that I was going to have to write down all the kids and their birth month to keep them all straight.

Birthstone Locket Mother's Day Gift Idea Birthstone Locket Mother's Day Gift Idea

From there I started matching months to months and adding the little jewels. Once all were added, I snapped the locket back together and inserted the chain. If another grand baby is added to the family we can easily open the locket and add another jewel.

Birthstone Locket Mother's Day Gift Idea

Now Grandma can keep the grandkids close even when they live hours away! Happy Mother’s Day!
