DIY Candy Wreath-Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, and I love to make themed crafts for the occasion! In my opinion, why buy something when you can make it for cheaper (and make a memory out of it?). This craft is so easy to do, and you can get your kids involved (as long as they don’t eat all the candy corn!). This project all together cost me under $10 and looks great on my door!Continue reading
Easter Egg Crafts – “Eggcellent” Wreath
It may be officially Spring but that does not mean that Winter is not hanging around to see how much trouble it can cause. With Easter only 4 weeks away, the desire for fresh air, bright colors, and a renewed sense of being are pounding on the door. I decided that in order to beat away the Winter blues, my daughter and I could create an Easter Egg Crafts. We could then pay it forward by gifting it to someone to help brighten up their day. I followed my own advice in How to Save on Crafts and headed to the Dollar Store to pick up our crafting supplies. Since we were doing a mommy/daughter easy Easter craft, I let my daughter use her imagination for the supplies that we would need. Check out how you can create this Easter Egg Crafts and add some color to your home. Continue reading

It is that time again. Graduation. The start of a new life. Well the start of adulthood, the time when your children become adults and they are done with required school. I can’t imagine how exciting it is to have a graduate and how difficult it is to let go of your baby. I do know that graduating high school or college is a huge accomplishment and it deserves a gift.
In our home cash and gift cards have always been welcome. I mean who wouldn’t want cash? Who doesn’t need a gift card. That is why I loved this Graduation Personalized Gifts Idea. I set a budget of $100. I am sure there will be people who will give less and some who will give more you can easily do this Graduation Wreath project for $50 or less. If you do not roll the bills and instead fold them over the wreath it will be cheaper.
This project will require a wire wreath I got my at walmart for under $3.00. It is the same one but smaller that I used to make my cool diaper wreath.
Then get dollar bills and gift cards from places near the college. I usually put $5- $10 on each card depending on what it was. I did $10 for the pizza and the food and $5 on the Dunkin Doughnuts and the Dollar Tree.
You will take a dollar bill and roll it with the one on the top. You will need to roll all the bills the same way or the wreath will look funny.
Then you rubber band the money on the wreath.
I found this sign for $1.00 to put on it or you can use the amount of the money to add to the bottom. Get it 20 1 5 for 2015.
I then used a glue gun to put on the gift cards. You can also use double stick tape or tie them on with ribbons. I am sure whomever receives this will be very happy.
