Now, let's start crafting to celebrate the sweet little one with these cute and easy party favors

Simply hot glue in the deer and bottlebrush tree to the inside base of the glass jar. Then sprinkle in some confetti (this is my pink ombre confetti mix which is perfect for girl baby showers). The deer labels are available in my shop and I added adhesive to the back side and it fit perfectly atop the jar lid. Wouldn't these confetti globes look super sweet set out at each place setting for the guests?

These DIY Confetti Ornaments are not only festive when filled with my Festive Fetti in your favorite color combo, but they can be personalized with stickers and hand-writing the guests name on in permanent marker or paint pen.

I loved how Susan of Shop Sugar Parties LA took the idea from my Instagram post and re-created it with my holiday Festive Fetti tucked inside for a Santa-saurus ornament for her son's classroom tree.

Mini Paper Doily Cones for Valentine's Day

Anything in miniature form gets me every time. And, these super cute mini doily cones are definitely one of them. They are super easy to make and I used the paper doilies that are 3 1/2" in diameter and simply adhered them together with clear gift wrap tape after forming the cone shape.

I filled them with Gimbal's Cinnamon Lovers heart shaped chewy candy but you can easily use any candy you like or maybe even paper heart confetti from my shop. See the end of this post for the quick and easy 4 step process to creating your cute little doily cones. Wouldn't these candy filled cones look adorable placed in the center of each plate with their contents spilling out, ready to be snatched up? PS: for those that might be wondering Gimbal's Cinnamon Lovers candy is made with real cinnamon oil and no high fructose corn syrup. They are also peanut free, tree nut free, dairy free, gluten free, soy free and egg free.

This fun Valentine's Day Confetti Mix from my shop would be super fun filled in the doily cones.

DIY Halloween Wreath with Feather Boas and Flower Hair Clips

Today's DIY was originally featured on my wedding blog last year as it provided the ideas and colors for an inspiration board I created. Since this blog is all about crafting with your children I thought it would be fun to share how to create it here. I also started thinking it would be cute to create mini wreaths for the holidays and hang them on the outside of your girls bedrooms. This wreath would be perfect to create at any size and I'm almost certain any girl would love to have a wreath with boas hanging on her door. {PS: This wreath was created by my mom and she hangs it over her dining room mirror for the Halloween holiday season. I took the photos}

How To Create the Feather Boa Wreath with Flower Hair Clips {aka Fascinators}

• styrofoam wreath form
• feather boas {enough to cover the size wreath you are making - this wreath used 3}
• floral hair clips {these were found at Joann's on clearance for just over $1 each}

Simply wrap the boas around the wreath form - you might want to spray paint your form black to avoid any noticeable gaps between the boas. You can use pins to secure the ends of the wreath in the form on the backside. When finished with that, simply clip the flowers you found together to create a cluster. Three of anything is always a great number to work with :)

Using Bubbles to Create Art Prints : as seen in "101 Kids Activities' Book

My older daughter who will be turning 8 in three months still loves bubbles and now my youngest who is 23 months loves when I blow bubbles. With both of them lately, the bigger I can make them, the more they love it. I'm told to make another big one and then the little one loves to poke it with her finger. Makes me smile every time. Well, now there's something new you can do with bubbles and Holly Homer and Rachel Miller of are here to share one of their fun craft activities with us. They have recently released a book that will make the saying "I'm bored" be a thing of the past. The book, 101 Kids Activities That Are The Bestest, Funnest Ever has 101 activities inside that will keep children of all ages busy with activities that use common, everyday household items. Today's project is called Bubble Prints and here's the craft recipe to create it with your child(ren).
DIY Kids Craft : How to Create Bubble Art Prints : complete recipe on

Bubble Prints

Materials (to make one bubble shooter)
• 9 to 12 drinking straws
• Rubber band
• Broad plastic cup
• Multiple sheets of paper

Bubble Solution (to make about 1 1/2 cups [360 ml] bubble solution)
• 1 cup (235 ml) water
• 1/3 cup (80 ml) not concentrated liquid dish detergent (if concentrated, use slightly less)
• 3 tablespoons (45 ml) corn syrup
• 10 to 15 drops food coloring

It is best to stir the ingredients to mix them, not shake. Let it sit overnight for the best results. We split our recipe into multiple baby food jars and then added food dye for our printing craft.

Grab a handful of straws and secure them together with a rubber band. We found that five or six straws worked best.

Dip one end into the bubble solution placed into a plastic cup broad enough to accommodate the straw bundle. Blow lots of bubbles!

Hold the end of the shooter over a piece of paper and see what happens on the paper as the colored bubbles pop. Let dry.

Modifications for Younger Kids
Instead of using dish detergent to create the bubbles, make them pain-free by using tear-free baby wash. This way, if your child gets a bubble in an eye it won’t sting.

Younger kids who might inhale with the straw in their mouth vs. exhale should continue to use a bubble wand until the coordination is mastered. No one wants a mouthful of bubbles!

Modifications for Older Kids
Cut the bottom off a water bottle. Put a dish rag over the opening and use a rubber band to secure that to the bottle. Dip the rag into the bubble juice and blow on the “mouth” of the bottle. The result should be a “snake” of bubbles.

Use your bubble-printed paper to write a card to a friend or family member you haven’t seen in a long time - you can also use bubble prints on butcher paper to create your own wrapping paper for gifts.
