Cabinet Wreaths

img_3372

I found this idea on Pinterest and I just HAD to do it myself! SO here is my rendition of cabinet wreaths! I have made them all and hung them up on my kitchen cabinets and it really brings the Christmas spirit into my home! Also, this craft only cost 3 dollars! You can find all of these supplies at a dollar store near you! The supplies you'll need: 1. Wired Garland Ties 2. Ribbon 3. Double Sided Tape The first thing you do is take 2 wired garland ties and tie them together to make a small wreath and make several of them, as many as you need for your cabinets. After that it gets really easy! You just measure out the ribbon on your cabinet and see how long you want the ribbon and where you want your wreaths to hang. Make sure that after you measure you give a little extra length so that you can tape the ribbon on the inside of the cabinet and so it will wrap around the wreath itself. Voila! You can hang your wreaths on your cabinets with one sided or … [Read more...]

Welcome to another day of Christmas everyday! For this post I will show you a craft I did recently made out of buttons! This is a cute craft that you can do with kids of any age. I really enjoyed this craft and I will probably make more button ornaments, maybe a santa or an elf would be cute too! The supplies: 1. Scissors 2. Ribbon or fabric for scarf 3. String 4. White buttons of various sizes (about 7-10 depending on the desired size of snowman) 5. One red button 6. 3-5 Black buttons (depending on how tall you want the hat) Here is the finished project, I wish I could have taken more pictures so you can visualize it but this craft is super easy and is pretty easy to figure out! I started by putting the buttons in the order that I want. Then I grabbed my string and threaded it through the buttons in the proper order from the bottom up (base of snowman to hat). Once the string is threaded through one of the hole on each of the buttons, I went back and … [Read more...]

Beauty Lally Make Up Brushes

img_9043

#makeupbrushes I received this product in exchange for my honest review. I tried almost all of the makeup brushes (I didn't use all of them because I don't use them in my regular makeup routine) and the brushes are really soft and silky. They all have different purposes and each is made very well to do its job. The Beauty Lally Make-up Brushes kit comes with the following: 10 makeup brushes A cylindrical carrying case A compact with a regular mirror and a magnified mirror A pamphlet with a picture and description of each of the brushes Of the brushes I used, I loved. My only critique with this product is that there is no eyeshadow precision brush used to apply different eye colors. There is a base/highlighter eye shadow brush and a blending eye shadow brush. If that brush was in the kit then I would give the product 5/5 stars instead of my rating of 4/5 stars. Overall, these brushes are really soft and great for people just starting with makeup because of the … [Read more...]
