DIY Father’s Day Gift – Dad’s Stache

Father's Day Gift Dad's Stache

I’ve been loving all the “Dad’s Stache” printables floating around Pinterest, and I thought it would be fun to add a personal touch and add the kids to the jar with a printable. The boys thought it was totally hilarious and loved wearing the “mustaches” on their face. That’s what makes this jar even more fun and adds the perfect touch for Dad’s father’s day gift.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Picture of Your Kids wearing these Mustache Printables
  • Printables: Small Printable to glue on the picture OR Large Printable Mustache Sign to hold while taking the picture: Dad | Grandpa| Gramp| Papa
  • Sign to use as a prop (See instructions for number 1)
  • Large Jar
  • Candy
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Box Cutter/Knife

Father's Day PicturesFather's Day Picture Jar

1) Snap some pictures of your kids wearing the mustache and holding a blank sign (or some other prop they can hold to make it look like they’re holding the printable), or holding the Printable Mustache Sign. If your kids aren’t holding the sign straight, you can always shoot the picture at an angle. πŸ˜‰

If you printed out the “large printable,” go down to step 4.

2) Once your picture is printed, cut it down so that it will fit the jar and use a box cutter to cut around their hands like the one pictured so you can slip the printable underneath. Getting the printable to fit will depend on your picture and sizes will vary. I made the border of the small printable sizes a little bit bigger so you can cut it down if you need to. You can either use the printable provided or make your own instead. πŸ™‚

3) Put glue on the back of the printable and carefully slip the paper underneath the kiddos hands.

4) Glue the picture onto the jar and stick some Dad’s favorite candy in and your Father’s Day Gift is all set! Since my jar was pretty big, I bought some candy bars to stick in the jar. This is perfect for Dad’s office, man cave, or his secret “stash” on the top shelf of the pantry. πŸ™‚

 

 

Pineapple Countdown

DIY Pineapple Countdown paper chain

We have a couple things to look forward to this summer. First and most importantly, school is almost out! The next big thing on our list is our family vacation to Hawaii, and let me tell ya, we are pretty excited about it. My 3 year old will do the hula dance and it is hilarious, I can’t wait for him to see the real thing! With Hawaii on our minds, I came up with this fun Pineapple Countdown. It’s the perfect way for all of us to see how many days we have left, and a great way to help our 3 year old learn to count (and get his numbers in the correct order).

Everything is easy to put together, the only party I had trouble with was the pineapple tops. I don’t know about your freehand cutting skills but my pineapple tops were garbage. So I made it easier on myself (and for you) with a printable that you can print on green construction paper and you can cut out as many as you need.

Pineapple Count Down

Here’s what you’ll need:

Green, Yellow & White Construction Paper

Pineapple Top Printable – (Print on Green Construction Paper)

Scissors

Tape

diy pineapple countdown chain

Get everything cut out and ready to go. I cut my strips about 1″-1.5″ thick, and cut it horizontally so I had more strips from one piece of paper.

Pineapple Countdown

Stick two pieces of tape onto the back of a pineapple top, as pictured above. This doesn’t have to be fancy, since you’ll be taking off the loops as you countdown your days.

Pineapple Countdown chain and printable

Place the pineapple top onto the middle of a green strip of paper, and then form a circle and hold it together with a piece of tape.

Countdown Pineapple Chain

Add another “chain” to the green strip by placing the yellow strip of paper through the green strip and holding it together with tape. Then add another yellow strip as pictured above. Your pineapple top may look like it’s going to move all over the place, but I promise once it’s hanging, you can adjust it the way you like and it will stay!

Countdown Chain

Then add a white strip of paper after the yellow loop and continue the pattern again. It should look like the picture above.

Keep on adding loops until you’ve reached the desired length of your countdown. These are also great for party decorations! I love how these turned out. My husband told me these cracked him up, but I think it got him pretty excited about our upcoming vacation!

Pirate Valentine’s Day Printables

PIRATE VALENTINESMy boys love the Chips Ahoy cookies, and ask for them almost every time they see them at the store. Normally the answer is a no, but every once in a while I need a little something sweet, so I cave in. Since they love it so much, I thought it would be fun for my kindergartner to pass them out to his class for Valentine’s day and made these fun little pirate Valentines to go along with the cookies.

If you have a little pirate lover at home or have little ones that love these cookies as much as my kiddos, these will be fun for them to pass out to their friends. Grab your Pirate Valentine’s Day Printable and wrap it around a snack bag size of the cookies with bakers twine or string and you’re all set! I’ve also made a smaller version of the printable HERE.

DIY Valentine’s Day Foil Print

DIY Valentine's Day Foil Print

*this post contains affiliate links*

I was pulling out some of my Valentine’s Day decorations this past week and realized I how little I had. I’ll be honest, I have never been too worried about going all out for Valentine’s day, but this time I felt like there were parts of my house that could use a little more “love”.Β  I wanted to be a little bit more crafty with this one, and took out my Minc and started to come up with some different ideas. This print was one that stuck and it has been a fun addition in my house!

If you’re looking to add another decoration in your home, here’s what you’ll need:

Materials:

Valentine's Foil Project Wall Art

Start by turning on your Minc (I usually set mine at a 3). Print out page one of the XOXO Printable and cut out a piece of the hot pink foil so it fits over the letters.

Valentine's Foil Project 00

Place your foil on top of the X’s and stick it inside the foil transfer folders. Once it’s in place, run it through the Minc.

Valentine's Foil Project Part 01

Peel off the foil after it’s gone through and and put it back into your printer making sure it’s facing the right way so that it will print out page 2 of the XOXO printable.

Valentine's Foil project 1 copy

If you’ve printed it correctly, you’re page should look like this. If you didn’t, that’s ok. It took me a couple tries to get this right…

Valentine's Foil Project Wall Art7

Do another rough cut of your light pink foil this time and set it on top. If you’re adding the gold foil to the “hugs & kisses” this would be the best time to do it. I’ve found that putting it through the Minc as little as possible helps keep from distorting the foil that was there previously.

Valentine's Foil Wall Art

Once that’s through, peel off the remainder of your foil and stick your new piece of decor in a frame and admire it.

Valentine's Day Foil Print

If you don’t have a Minc, not to worry! I’ve also made the same printable in color HERE. If you’re looking to buy a Minc, they’re available at Joann’s, Michaels, Amazon, and many other stores.

Night Before Christmas Gift Tags

I’m know we’re not the only ones, but it has always been a tradition in my home for each kid to open up one gift on Christmas Eve, our choice. It was so fun, and made it that much more exciting to see what was left under our tree the next morning. My husband’s family also got to open one gift before Christmas, but they were always pajamas. When I joined their family, I loved the idea that you would be getting a new set of pajamas each year (or every other year – that’s how we’ve worked out Thanksgiving and Christmas with our families).

While still carrying on my families tradition of opening one gift on Christmas Eve, I’ve converted to my husbands family tradition with making it a new set of pajamas each year for my kids. In order to figure out which gift our kids get to open the night before Christmas, I’ve made these gift tags to make it easier to find. You will no longer need to make extra notes on your gift tags reminding you to “OPEN ME ON CHRISTMAS EVE,” buy an extra roll of wrapping paper to determine which ones are the “night before Christmas” gifts (unless you enjoy doing that which isn’t a bad idea) or set them aside in another room until it’s time open.

I’d love to see how you decorate your gifts using these gift tags on Instagram or Facebook! I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!

Luckily, this little project will turn your favorite family photo into a cute and festive Christmas card, and it’ll save you some money. Intrigued? I’ll tell you how.

halloween-printable-tag

It’s National Popcorn Popping month, and with Halloween around the corner, I’ve decided to “dress up my popcorn.” With all this candy floating around the stores, it’s hard to not want to buy any before Halloween, am I right? So if you’re like me, or have some extra candy lying around, you’ll want to try this popcorn recipe, because it is pretty stinkin’ good! And believe me when I say I will be making this again after my kids get their haul on Halloween.

Things you’ll need:

Original SkinnyPop Popcorn (4.4 oz) or 2 bags of microwave popcorn

Orange Candy Melts

2 Cups Chopped Chocolate (mixed variety)

Sprinkles

First of all, meet Danny. This recipe has been Danny tested and Danny approved! And his approval is important since he is our popcorn eating machine! πŸ™‚

trick-or-treat-popcorn-munch-3

Pour half of your popcorn in a bowl and pour melted candy melts over the popcorn and mix well. Make sure you cover as much popcorn as you can with the candy melts.

trick-or-treat-popcorn-munch-4

popcorn-munch-trick-or-treat

Lay out your chocolate covered popcorn on a cookie sheet with parchment paper or foil and sprinkle as little or as many sprinkles your heart desires. Stick it in the freezer for 5 minutes or until the chocolate has hardened.

trick-or-treat-popcorn-munch-0

While your chocolate covered popcorn is in the freezer, roughly chop your candy. My mix included Twix, 3 Musketeers, Snickers, and Milkway, but you can use whatever chocolate candy you have.

trick-or-treat-popcorn-munch-5

Pull out your chocolate covered popcorn and start mixing in the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl. If some of your chocolate popcorn is stuck together, go ahead and break it up, it doesn’t have to be perfect. If you’re serving this at a party, set aside some sprinkles and chocolate and sprinkle it on top.

Or if you’re handing this treat out to friends, use some bakers twine and this Halloween Printable to hand them out with! I hope you’re enjoying this time of year as much as we are!
