Halloween Printable Craft Project

Hi everyone, I am the #2 blogger of the 4 creative divas and I have a very easy craft for you.   This craft is using one of the Halloween printable that is offered in the blog.  I made a cute little Halloween plaque.

1. Start with a board that fits your printable, Make it big enough to have a border around it.
     ( I used MDF,  you can get it at Lowes or Home depot,  but you could use any type of wood.)

2. Router around the edges. Or if you dont have a router sand the edges to make a nice rounded edge.  Take a hammer and distress the edges a little.

3. Spray with a black spray paint and let dry.
      ( I used matte finish)

4. Use a thin coat of  Mod Podge to adhere the printable to the board.

5. Cover with a thin coat of Mod Podge let dry.
    ( I used two coats of Mod Podge)

6. Decorate with embellishments of your choice.
 ( I took  4 inch pieces of various Halloween ribbon , twisted it, and wrapped a brad around it. Then I glued it on with craft glue.)

I attached a small block to the back to make it stand up. You can put picture hangers, or staple a ribbon on the back for a wall hanging,  or use a small easel for a table piece.

Don't be afraid to try a new craft for Halloween.   When you get finished and it looks really scary, that's great, that is the way you want it.

Little girl Hairstyle tutorial #7 Knot hair do

This is one of my favorite hair styles I have done on C so far.  I just love all the different textures, with the braids,  and the knots, and the poofy ponytail in the back.  Don't worry I know it looks complicated, but if you follow the steps you will see it is really easy!
Part the hair across the front of the head, like in the picture to the left. Then dutch braid, the hair down to the ear.
then make a part from the tip of the left ear to the tip of the right ear  and make 5 pony tails with the remaining hair on top of head up to the part you just made. Tuck the tail of the dutch braid into your first pony tail.
Tie each ponytail into a knot. Demonstrated in the picture on the left. Once all the ponytails have been tied into knots. take the tails, and pull them into a single ponytail at the back of the head.

Backcomb the ponytail Place bobby pins underneath the  ponytail to make it stand up a little.

Roll the remaining hair up to meet the ponytail and secure with bobby pins. ( …

Cute easy skirt tutorial!

Is it just my girls, that really LOVE skirts? Most days my two year old, C. E , refuses to wear anything that isn't either a skirt or a dress. Lucky for her I am constantly making skirts and dresses. :) I haven't even purchased her any pants for a year. ( well I did purchase one pair, but it had a skirt attached so it doesn't count.) Each day after I get C. E dressed, ( in either a skirt or a dress) she always says "I wear dress lite (like) a pincess (princess)."  It always makes me giggle a little. So this is my latest skirt. It is inspired by that pre shirred fabric you can get at any fabric store. they didn't have any made from corduroy  though, so I decided to make my own. If you can sew a straight line, then you can make this skirt! It is the easiest skirt I have ever made, and I have made A LOT of skirts,  It is made with grey corduroy, so it will hold up well, and the interchangeable sash will ensure it will go with anything.  C loves wearing this skir…

another cute new hairstyle

Today's style is pretty easy.  This hair do  is a very cute style that doesn't take much time, but looks like it did.

      First part the hair into three sections and place into three pony tails.

Then separate each little ponytail in half  and join together with four new sections of hair creating four new ponytails. Then gather the four pony tails into two ponytails along with two sections of hair to create two ponytails. 

 curl the remaining hair that is left out of the pig tails
 Look how cute!
