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!
NOW HAVE FUN AND DECORATE!!!!! The girls loved being princesses for the day!
*NOTE: they stay in the hair better if it is pulled back!
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!
