Five on Friday | Homemade and DIY

12 12 2014

Linking up for Five on Friday with DarciChristinaApril, and Natasha, and oh hey, Friday with Karli and Amy. This week has been a little crazy – we’ve been prepping for a busy weekend, and then yesterday I was in a car accident with my 2 boys. My toddler’s version of the story: “Mommy hit the truck. It was scary! Waaa! Mommy say sorry. The sirens came. Weeeeeoooooowwwwweeeeeooooo. Sirens opened my door. They checked on me. They had big hats!” Lately, I’ve been explaining to him what “sirens” are for, and we pray for them when we hear them drive past.

Now on to the lighter post I scheduled before all that happened:

one | Before the baby was born, I crafted a fall burlap wreath, and I had enough leftover burlap to make a winter one, adding sparkly gold burlap into the design this time! So easy!

two | I don’t know what to call these, but a friend posted a how-to the other night, and I threw it together since we had all the ingredients. Omelette muffins, perhaps? I added cheese, peppers, hash browns, ham, and sour cream.

three | When I painted these feather tips gold, it was for a nursery mobile. I made the mobile and didn’t like it, so I repurposed them, along with a shadowbox I already had, and plan to hang this behind the boys’ teepee.




four | Something was missing from this baby frame when I put in the 8 x 10… so I made a bow using a tutorial I found on Pinterest. This required 3 pieces of ribbon, staples, and hot glue, believe it or not! Next time I think I’ll just tie it.

five | My last DIY is a gift, so instead let’s talk about boy fashion. I’ve been trying to figure out what my boys should wear to my brother’s winter wedding. I’ve scoured Etsy, Pinterest, Target, and Instagram and have decided it would be cool to learn to sew bow ties and baby moccs, because they are NOT cheap. I’ll let you know once I figure all that out. 🙂 In the meantime, I ordered a bow tie from Etsy and moccs from MWA moccs.

We are looking forward to our gingerbread-house-decorating PJ party this weekend, along with meeting Santa! So blessed that we’re all healthy and safe to be able to make these traditions even after the crash.
