DIY Floral Crowns

featured image

Hi there Crafting Chicks followers! This is Ali from Dream Crafter back again to share another artsy fartsy idea. I’m sure you have seen these floral crowns floating around Pinterest and I can’t get enough of them! (Sigh…if only I had  girl.) But I do love them for adults too. Not only are these floral crowns really cute, they are also REALLY easy to make (my favorite aspect of any craft.) Here’s what you’ll need to make these festive little beauties: 1. A whole bunch of fake flowers. (I would suggest getting some quality ones like at Michaels or Hobby Lobby.) I had an entire box full of fake flowers in my grandma’s basement just waiting to be used. Score! 2. Fabric Scissors 3. Neutral colored felt 4. Floral wire 5. Needle nose pliers 6. Wire cutters 7. Regular craft scissors 8. Hot glue gun and glue 9. Headbands or something stiff you can make a crown with. (Like thick [Read More…]

Potted Grass from Pink Parlor Designs {Spring Fever Series}

2014-03-23

YES, it’s our friend Amy from Pink Parlor Designs.  You may recognize the name from the popular tents she sells.  She is awesome.  Welcome Amy! Let’s admit it, Spring is the best! The anticipation of spring blooms, summer picnics, and flip flops!  In our home we basically live outdoors beginning in the spring and don’t want to come inside until the new school year starts up again.  While being outside we love to do our fair share of gardening. The first signs of spring however start with our family tradition of planting our own Easter grass.  It’s a quick, easy, fun, project that your little ones can help with. Yes it makes a mess for about 12 minutes, yes you will want to sweep up immediately and think you could have done this in about 4 minutes by yourself but that’s not the point.  The fun in this is watching them learn and test their patience over the next few weeks [Read More…]

Wheatgrass

grass

Although we still have a foot of snow on the ground, the recent appearance of the sun has given me spring fever. A really easy way to bring spring inside is to plant some wheatgrass. It only takes a few days to appear and every time I walk into the kitchen I see a little piece of spring sitting on my counter. The only thing you really need are wheat berries (whole wheat). You can find them in most grocery stores (look for whole wheat) or beg some off your neighbor with a wheat grinder. A cute container with potting soil, or even a plate with wet paper towels will work, although the grass will last longer in the potting soil. Sprinkle the soil or paper towels with the wheat seeds and keep them moist, I usually cover the container with Saran Wrap until the seeds have germinated. Now sit back watch your grass grow and don’t forget to water [Read More…]
