DIY Pressed Flowers in a Floating Glass Frame Craft

 I love seeing the pretty flowers on our neighborhood walks and hikes, don't you? Maybe that's why I adore making pressed flower crafts. This past month we've made pressed flower wooden trays and moon and star contact paper suncatchers. And today I'll share some lovely pressed flower glass frames that the boys and I made. These came out so pretty, I think they'd be perfect to keep, or give away to someone special.

Cute Clay DIY Air Plant Troll Pots

Hi friends! Many apologies. It's been a long time since I last posted. Let's just say that the pandemic and other personal projects have really worn me out and I've found it difficult to find the time and energy to craft. 

One thing that I have done to get me through these difficult times is watching houseplant and succulent videos. I have no idea why, but seeing people talk about plants really soothes me.  So today I'm popping in to share these adorable Clay Air Plant Troll Pots that I recently made. They are adorable and hopefully, they'll brighten your day too!

Easy DIY Clay Heart Mobile Craft

I love decorating my house with handmade items. Awhile back both my boys were really, really into Sculpey Clay (aff link).  In case you've never used this type of clay before, it's AMAZING! Once the clay is softened, you can basically manipulate it like playdough and then bake it in the oven to set it.  That's it! Super, super easy.

We've shared a ton of Sculpey Clay crafts on the blog over the years and today's heart mobile is one of my favorites! Kids can easily mix colors up to make cool, marble-like effects and then help out with cutting out hearts and stringing the whole mobile up too!

How to Make Best Friend Clay Necklaces

Did you own a best friend necklace as a kid?  One of my friends recently bought a pair for her daughter and best friend.  (They were groovy mood ones.  Girls' jewelry has definitely gotten cuter since I was a kid.)  I was so inspired by the cute necklaces that my son and I made our own clay friendship necklaces.  Aren't they fun?

(And even though these were made for friends, this would be a great gift to make for Mother's Day or Valentine's Day too!)

3D "I Love You" Hand Craft (And our Favorite Books about Love)

It's already February and I haven't yet put up any Valentine's Day Crafts this year.  Oof! What kind of kid crafter am I?

I've just been so caught up in what's happening in our country and world that I haven't fully had the heart or energy to embrace doilies, flowers, chocolate, hearts.... basically anything Valentine's yet.  But today I'm turning a new leaf.  Here's my first Valentine's day craft of the season... these 3D "I Love You" Hands.

(They're not quite hearts and flowers and pun-ny sayings.. but it's a start, right?)

Easy DIY Marbled Clay Covered Pens

Ever swoon while you're walking through stationary stores?  I looove pretty pens and paper.  But I don't always like the price tag that's associated with them.  Since we've been doing tons of clay projects lately, my son and I tried our hand at making clay covered pens.

I'll be honest.  I wasn't too hopeful about the results.  Plastic pens in ovens?  Urmm...  I worried that they would catch on fire... or melt.  But it didn't happen!  We turned a couple of el-cheapo-freebie pens into some fancy-shmancy marbled ones.  Ooh la la! Aren't they gorgeous?

Clay Portrait Pendant Necklaces

My son started elementary school this week.  *Sob*  It's been such a happy, bittersweet couple of days. Recently we've been creating a lot of little trinkets with clay.  (Have you seen our  clay outer space necklace and clay dream catcher?)  So I asked him to make some clay portrait pendant necklaces with me before school started.  This way I can wear them and remember him while he's away.
