Flower Pot Candy Bowl: Easter Version

Standard

I’ve been eying those darling DIY gumball machines for awhile now.  Needing a little gift, I made a spring version.

easter candyMy first choice would have been to paint the pot a pastel color to match the knob, but bright pink was what I have on hand.  I got the glass bowl at Walmart and the knob at Lowes, each for a dollar.  The “Happy Easter” was made with my Silhouette vinyl cutter.  The candy was the most expensive part!

Sunshine Art Gift

Standard

In search of a homemade gift from my kiddos, I saw a few variations on Pinterest of this idea, mostly using footprints.  They were super cute, but I didn’t want to invest in a large canvas big enough for feet.  Instead I used an 8×10 canvas panel that I purchased on Amazon in a 12 pack (around a dollar a piece).  I outlined the circle for my oldest kiddo and he painted the sun.  Then I helped each munchkin make three or four fingerprints on the canvas.  Using my trusty Silhouette I cut out the letters in vinyl and applied to the canvas.  I love how it turned out!  On the back (not pictured) I put “Made with Love and Little Fingers” and had all my kids sign their names.

Strawberry Baby Girl Shower

Standard

My friends and I threw a strawberry themed baby shower for Brittney, pregnant with #4 and her first girl.  It was a large shower, so we did open house style in the evening after dinner, so only serving desserts.  We did everything in red, pink and green.  Check out the cuteness:
