Upgrade store-bought throw pillows in a jiffy with simple appliqués. To make them, type JOY into a word-processing document, using a font you like. Enlarge each character to full letter-page size. Print, then cut out the letters and trace them onto white felt; cut out. Next, pin strips of fusible bonding web, such as Stitch Witchery ($2.99; joann.com), to the back of each felt letter. Center each one (with webbing underneath) on a pillowcase and carefully remove the pins. Iron on according to the package instructions. Once the letters have adhered, add decorative stitching with embroidery thread, if desired.

ISupplies You Will Need:
1/3 Cup Dish soap ( I have a suggestion for smaller kids below)
2 Tablespoons of Corn Starch
Paint Brush (or they can use them as finger paints in the tub)
Small Tupperware ( I used 1/2 cup size with lid)
What I love about this is…you have it all at home anyway. No need to go out and buy supplies!
Here’s what you do:
Take the Dish Soap or Baby Shampoo for the younger kids so it won’t hurt if it gets in their eyes, and mix it in a bowl with the Corn Starch.
Then divide your mixture into four small Tupperware containers.
Next add 3 drops of food coloring into each container and stir with spoon.
Done! Easy Peasy!
Now you should have bath paints that look like this:
When bath time is over, you can slap the lids on them and save them for next time….OR
if your kid is anything like mine there won’t be any paint left cause he dumped it all in the tub after he was done painting..so you just plop the containers in the dishwasher.
It’s so inexpensive, and fun for the kids to make that I don’t mind making it again & again!

To make your own paper lantern candy decore.

Step four: Tie the ends with twine and fluff the tulle out. Trim the ends as needed.
ROAD MAP BIRD HOUSES
First, paint each birdhouse so they have plenty of time to dry while you work on the maps.
To make the templates, just place paper onto the face of the birdhouse and and traced with a pen.
I used the templates I made to cut out the map pieces. Note that I made sure that I cut out map pieces with the colors of the birdhouses. For example, for the green birdhouse I used a piece of the map with a large national park area. After cutting them out I trimmed them to make sure there was wood visible along the edges. To prep the paper, I painted a layer of decoupage onto the back of each map piece and let them dry.” -Crafts by Amanda
While the maps were drying, I sanded all the edges of the birdhouses to expose the wood underneath. I prepped the surface of the birdhouses by painting the section to be decoupaged with decoupage medium. Then I applied the map to the surface and pressed out all the air. It’s important to be patient and let the decoupage dry completely, several hours, before applying the final finish coat. Bubbles occur when the final coat is applied because the paper underneath has not had a chance to dry and stick completely.” -Crafts by Amanda
wASHI TAPE THUMBTACKS
Why do I love washi tape? Because it makes virtually everything cuter. You can add a little bit of it to just about anything and it instantly has personality and flair.
To make your thumbtacks cuter, put a small piece of washi tape on each pushpin, smoothed out any fine wrinkles with ur thumbnail, and trim around the edges with a sharp scissors. Now thats cute!
Personalized Wood Utensils
Step one: Choose a wood utensil with a wide handle. You can find these at the dollar tree!
Step two: Plan your design, You can also stamp an image or word using a light colored stamp pad. Then you can just trace it!
Step three: Screw the desired tip on to the wood burning tool and plug it in. When the tip is hot, hold the tool like a pen and trace over the letters.
And there you have it !
Start out with a roll of wrapping paper that you can find in the Dollar Spot bins at Target and a stack of cereal boxes. Cut the boxes to the size of your finished album (5 by 7 inches is the size most people use). Make sure you cut an even number of pieces – cut 12 total, which in the end will give you 10 pages inside your album.
Roll out the wrapping paper. Along one of the long edges, about 1 inch in, draw a straight line to use as a guide. This will keep your pieces lined up straight as you add them. Apply Mod Podge to the unprinted side of the cardboard (what would have been the inside of the box) and glue them down in one long strip, leaving a gap of about 1/8 inch between each piece. As you apply each piece, roll over it with a brayer to make sure there are no wrinkles or air bubbles. Continue until all of the pieces are glued down to the wrapping paper.
Fold in the short edges and glue them down as shown, then carefully do the same with the long edges.
Fold the strip accordion-style to create the shape of the book. Apply a coat of Mod Podge to the back sides of each piece and press the pieces together, creating thick pages. If you have trouble with the pages warping, leave the album sitting under a stack of heavy books for a few hours to straighten them out.
Now all that’s left is to figure out what to put inside the album! If you plan to use this album as a scrapbook, you may want to spray the pages with archival mist to neutralize any acid in the paper and keep it from yellowing your photos or other memorabilia.
