DIY Paper Heart Wreath

DIY Paper Heart Wreath

Perfect for Valentine’s Day, a paper heart wreath is a fun craft for mama and little ones! I made this one with my toddler, and I’ll be making another with my preschooler next week! I used one-sided scrapbook paper squares, so that means one side of the paper is plain white. I’d recommend using double-sided [...]

DIY Magnetic Chalkboards

DIY Magnetic Chalkboards

Chalkboards seem to be the biggest craze right now, and I’ve totally jumped on board. I’ve been looking for something to make my own for awhile, but haven’t had much luck. I like the framed chalkboard look, but couldn’t see a piece of glass being sturdy (or safe) enough. I thought I could get just a [...]
