Have a little fun after you wipe…

Well ladies and gentlemen, I was feelin crafty with the young ones, (2 and 4 year old little girls to be exact) when I came across a pin… CROWNS OUT OF TOILET PAPER ROLLS! It was easy enough for the girls to enjoy and definitely was a craft that stayed in my budget!  All you need to start is a toilet paper roll, scissors, whatever you would like to decorate with (we used washable paint), and a bobby pin.

First you cut your crown shape from the toilet paper roll, i just did triangles. If your child is old enough draw lines for them to cut along by themselves!

Next cut a slit at the base, about a 1/4 inch wide and 1/8 inch from the base.  This is where you will put your bobby pin!

Ever have something in your house that just doesn’t look right?

Well ladies and gentlemen, I have.  There is this mirror I just couldn’t seem to get  right so, I tore it apart and did it again:)  My Old Mirror gone right has yet another face lift!  This will take about 6-8 bags of rocks, depending on your mirror size (I got mine from the dollar store but you can search for bulk prices elsewhere), and a strong glue.

This project is HEAVY!  When hanging this you will need to make sure you get a strong enough hanger/nail and find a stud to hang it from!

What I did is completely strip the mirror of everything I had done to it before except for some of the paint.

I then touched up the spots around the mirror with brown paint to give more background color .

I then glued the  rocks to the mirror  around the design and edges filling in afterwards, leaving what i wanted for my design exposed.

That ‘s it!  I spent 8 dollars and have a GORGEOUS mirror now!
