Burlap Wreath

I needed a new wreath for my front door and a burlap wreath seemed like just the thing. I got the largest wreath form they had at Joannes, and I wish I had done a bit smaller. I followed the instructions here:

Mario Brothers Costumes (princess peach, bowser, mario, luigi, diddy kong, toadstool)

Here is the dress I made for McKenna to be Princess Peach. This is a Cinderella dress pattern that I modified to be Princess Peach.

I made the crown also. Isn't she a cute princess!

Kaitlyn wanted to be Bowser. We got some yellow clothes. I made her a tail, a tutu, and horns. My husband made her a shell out of cardboard and duct tape.

The whole clan

Master Bedroom Remodel

A couple of years ago, I wanted to repaint our bedroom. We had gotten this nice new bedroom set and the wood blended in with the walls. I wanted a blue, but my husband is all about this green. So we went for it. It is bright, but fun. You can get a closer look at the pillows on this post:

Christmas Gifts {Doorway Puppet Theatre, Felt Bags, Tutu}

My kids made these bags for their cousins. It is very simple--Joann fabrics has the stuff you need!

I made this tutu for my niece. She loved it!

I made this puppet doorway theatre. 

Christmas PJs

Where we live, winter is cold. Because of that, I wanted to make pjs with long sleeves for the girls.

Re-using--get some paint

When I changed the color scheme of this room, I wanted to spruce up some of our items with some paint. My husband is very handy with the spray paint, so I asked him to paint a few things.

The first I actually did--it is the blue wreath shown in this picture:

It was an easy way to add some color. Those wreaths are very cheap at Hobby Lobby. Use a coupon or wait for the sale and it is even cheaper.

This one was red, which matched our previous colors. My husband painted this one blue.

See that black frame on the bottom right? Just barely? That is why I wanted it painted. It blended in 

Spray paint to the rescue.

This was for a different room--our master. My husband was in love with this color so we went for it...This one I just used regular paint since it matched perfectly what we were already doing.
