Easy Summer Coastal Chic DIY


Do you ever get in those weird creative moods where you just itch to do some DIY?
Well this project has inch written all over it.   I had a old gold cheap dollar store frame that was a very odd size.  I couldn’t put a 3×5 or a 5×7 or any other size inside it without it looking awkward.
I had just bought some pretty turquoise paint and wanted to see this color splashed all around my family room to help accent my summer coastal chic decor.

So. . . . . this is what the project ended up to be.  A new paint color, old frame and dollar store sea shells and a little ribbon for hanging!

I first started to paint the frame, couldn’t wait!  I used a cosmetic sponge to create that vintage look.

Next, I glued muslin type material which I already had from scraps onto cardboard backing.

I placed the board back into the frame and arranged my sea shells then hot glued them down. 
I  trimmed my ribbon to hang.  All done! 
VERY fun and easy dollar store DIY to do with the kids.  How fun to use your vacation shells from Summer for a memory board. 


Have you made any summer crafts with the kiddos lately?   Post your craft ideas.  
It’s going to be a bright summer day!

Easy 4th of July DIY Door Hanger and T-shirt

Sometimes I just get some creative motivation at the spur of the moment. 
How about you? 

It was the day before 4th of July and I was itching to make some fun patriotic diy. I totally whipped this all together in under an hour! I created a 4th of July sign for my front door.  

I used $1 wooden coasters from Michaels which come in a set of 5-such a good deal.  I painted the one coaster white.  I bought some polka dot ribbon and red rig rag and had some old buttons in my stash.  Hot glued it all to create a American flag, so cute.
I also used this idea to create a shirt for my daughter to wear with pride! 
Yes, and that was like in less than 10 min.  


I used the same supplies and hot glued them to a white shirt. 

My daughter Hadara loved wearing her new shirt 
and we added some of the polka dot ribbon to her hair! 
What are some crafts you do on the spur of the moment?  
It’s fun and it’s creative.  Why not?

Let the creative juices run wild and craft away with the kids today.

Keep pressing on Moms!
