Disney Cruise Door Decorations: Fun Mickey Name Signs

One fun extra thing you can do while cruising on a Disney ship is decorate your state room door. I might have gone a little overboard this trip but I was excited to try out a few ideas. The first idea was just making little mickey ears with everyone’s name written on the hat. This idea went to the next level when I decided to make a little Donald hat for my mom’s Mickey ears (because this is her favorite character). I had a lot of fun with this one so I decided to try a few more. <!–more–>

I LOVE how they turned out! All of this just out of some card stock and rubber cement.

Materials / tools

Instructions

Use your Silhouette studio software to create the hats and cuts. Make sure to use a stencil cut for the names so it will all be in one piece.

After they are cut, remove them from the cutting mat.

Cut strips of yellow card stock so it can cover the name hole. Use rubber cement to glue it in place.

Once rubber cement is dry, rub off the excess.

Heart String Pallet Art

After last year’s Christmas gifts my brother made a request that I make gifts for him every year. This would be so much easier if I lived within driving distance. Trying to figure out a homemade gift that will travel well is hard.

I have wanted to try to make string art for a while now so I decided to combine that with staining pallet wood. I decided to try to stain my bother and sister-in-law’s wedding date in the center and weave a string art heart around it. Continue reading

DIY Baby Blocks

First of all I would like to apologize for the long break between posts. After the holiday season we had a whirlwind of activity with our move to Oslo, Norway!  We are now getting settled in our temporary housing so that I have some free time to post about all the Christmas gifts I have made for friends and family.  I will post more about our Norway move later this week.

Paper Hearts and Shadow Boxes

Alex and I attended a couple beautiful weddings this summer and I wanted to make a fun gift for the two couples. After a quick search for wedding gifts on Pinterest I came across different variations of using paper hearts arranged in a shadow box.  I loved the look of these and decided to take the idea a step further and used the lyrics for their first dance song for the background.

Kitchen Organization {Post 2}: Dog Treat Chalkboard Canisters

We have way too many dog treats for our dog. Yes, we do spoil her but she is so much happier when she has a large variety of flavors and types of treats.  We recently started subscribing to BarkBox, so Zoey now gets new treats every month. We keep her treats on the counter and my husband (who hates any kind of clutter) pointed out with the expansion of dog treats was not looking very presentable.
