Before these festivities, I get to decorate my house for a beautiful cake cutting made by, of course, moi!

Matching Shirts for Newlyweds

As you may already know, my hubby and I just got married and for the morning that we left on our honeymoon I made us these beauties. I had originally went on etsy to see if I could just purchase them but for newlyweds (or just about to be newlyweds) on a budget the prices seemed a bit outrageous. Therefore I quickly decided to make myself some. These were made with a puffy fabric paint bottle freehand by yours truly but I have created a free template (here) for your enjoyment. Make for yourself or for the newlyweds in your life. Maids of honor? This is the perfect gift for your bride!
Now, there are two ways to make it. You can either use puffy paint like I did, or use these sheets here. I will include step by step for both below.
{What you will need}
Puffy Paint (or Transfer Sheets)
2 T-shirts
Exacto Knife or any straight edge paper cutter (I like Exacto's)
Cutting mat
Washable Marker
(For the transfer sheets you will also need an iron)
{Puffy Paint}
Step 1. Print out template
Step 2. Place your template on your cutting mat
Step 3. Use an Exacto knife to cut the image out
*this will be the tricky part because you will need to cut out exactly what you want- meaning letter by letter on the very edge
Step 4. Arrange letters on the shirt however you would like them to appear
Step 5. Now trace them with the marker
Step 6. This will be the fun part,  remove the template and you will have all your image before you, now trace over the marker with your puffy paint (choosing whether to fill it in or just leaving the outline) (to fill it in, I poured the puffy paint onto a paper plate and used a nylon paint brush)
Step 7. Let dry overnight
Step 8. Stick in the washer and hang dry
Step 9. Wear and flaunt your art
{Now With the Transfer Sheets}
Step 1 through 4. See above

His & Her Disney Shirts

This year, my husband and I became Walt Disney World Passholders due to a Christmas gift from my lovely mother. Naturally, I'm ecstatic and start planning! First thing on my list was matching shirts. This was pretty simple, and I am including the free download here so that you can print and use yourself.

What you will need:
- Fabric Transfer Sheets (Found HERE)
*please keep in mine that there are sheets for light and dark fabric
- Inkjet Printer
- Cotton T-Shirts (We used V-Necks)
- Scissors
- Iron

First thing you need to do is print out the image onto your transfer sheets. You can use the image I have attached, or you can create your own, however, make sure that you mirror the image before printing, and then the rest of the directions are pretty easy.

Place your transfer sheet image side down, and put a lot of heat directly on to the backside of it. No, really... A LOT of heat. When you think you are done (because you try to lightly pull up the image and can't) turn the shirt inside out and iron again... yep, you guessed it... use a lot of heat! When you are done, about 5-10 minutes of heat applied, let it completely cool, and peel off... and VOILA! You get to be one of those corny couples walking through Disney wearing matching shirts!

Have a baby? A little beast or beauty? Let's talk about customizing shirts for your beautiful family. 

Snowman Smash

Great for rainy Winter days, this very simple craft turned game can be created by the little ones.
What you will need:
● Styrofoam Cups {here we used bowls}
● Permanent Markets {crayons can be used as well}
And presto! This is fun because the kiddos can be as creative as they want.
When you're done,  stack them and make some paper balls [snowballs] and try and knock all the snowman's pieces over.
Happy crafting!

Fancy Gold Stud Party Sign

Ringing in the New Year, it would only make sense that the new post on my new blog show all of you all of the wonderful DIY decorations we had at our little shindig.  My favorite DIY project was our desserts table background. We made this sign with things bought at our nearby dollar store. My favorite thing about this project is that done in different colors and it can be used for any type of event!

What you need:

1 Poster Sized Foam Board
1 Box of (at least) 300 Thumbtacks (in your color choice)
1 Pencil
and a printout of your quote in your favorite font*

*I didn't use these because fonts and letters are my specialty, but this would make it so that anyone at all can do it.

Step One: Trace out your quote onto the board.

Step Two: Start punching in your thumbtacks.

Step Three: Enjoy!

Keep Crafting!

About Me

My name is Crystal and I love to create! I am constantly getting dirty painting something, fixing something, cooking something, or building something. The idea of this blog is to simplify all the Pinterest DIY Projects (etc.) so that even the least crafty person could do it.

The inspiration for this blog came from my husband. He and I were laying in bed one day watching the DIY network, and he says to me "Why do they call it the DIY Network if it's not really DIY?" and I quickly replied (as an avid DIYer and DIY Network watcher, in a super offended tone), "Of course, it's DIY, I could do that!", and he says "Yeah, YOU could that!" & that got me thinking! Just because super crafty or resourceful people can tackle these DIY crafts or projects, does not make it DIY for everyone. Sometimes, even the instructions on their own could be a project. Who understands those things?!
So here goes, I am going to devote my extra time to helping crafter & non-crafter alike on their crafting endeavors, from home to garden, from work to leisure, and you cannot leave out PARTY! Follow along as I hit or MISS & TELL.
