I remember doing paper mâché as a child with newspaper and flour and water. This Paper Mâché Hot Air Balloon craft uses the same principles, but we used tissue paper and watered down glue instead. I prefer this method and it’s great fun for the children and adults a like!
Who doesn’t love butterflies! These super cute Peg Butterflies are really simple to make, and look very effective. The beauty of them is you can still use them as pegs, so they are pretty and functional too. We are going to make a load up and use them to hang the children’s artwork in the playroom. Or you could simply have them as decorations.
Those of you that are regular readers of my blog will know that I need very little excuse to get out my craft supplies. So with St Patrick’s Day around the corner, I thought I would make this cute Shamrock Paper Chain. It is currently hanging in the kids playroom, I just need to find a little leprechaun to sit with it!
Who doesn’t love a holiday! As our kids get older, and we get braver about taking them further afield, I feel my passion for travel and adventure returning. We’ve been lucky in the last few years to have done quite a lot of travelling. We’ve had lots of fun in our caravan ‘Clarabelle’ and last year we took the kids on an aeroplane for the first time. More recently James took me to New York for my birthday which was an amazing holiday in more ways than one!
I am always short of time. Working, blogging, being mum and now we have a wedding to organise in less than 5 months! I’m not complaining though I love it, but every now and then a helping hand is always appreciated. Which is where Shiply comes in.
World Book Day is just around the corner, and even though there is very little time, a fab costume does not have to cost you the earth. If you are stuck for inspiration for a Simple DIY World Book Day Costume then read on.
I love making things from everyday objects, and this Paper Plate Easter Basket was a lot of fun to make. It’s a fab simple craft to do with the kids in time for Easter, and they can even use it on their egg hunts.
If you are lucky enough to have a little girl with wild crazy hair, then you will know that you can never have enough headbands to tame unruly manes. With Easter round the corner, here is a really simple craft project to make a really cute DIY Easter headband for your little princess.
