Fourth of July Wreath…

I am so excited for the Fourth of July!  I am gearing up early after I found lots of goodies at the Dollar Tree.  They have a great selection of patriotic decorations that were perfect for putting on a wreath.

I used 2 of the 9ft. garlands to wrap and hot glue around the foam wreath form.

I used 5 pairs of flip flops in a size 5/6, the smallest they had and embellished them with foil stars and wire spangles.

After I glued the flip flops down, I added more spangles by just poking the wire into the foam all around the wreath.

It is a bit gaudy, but that is what makes it fun and unique.  Perfect to welcome guests this summer!

K is for Kangaroo…

This week flew by we were so busy with our graduation and end of the year festivities!  We finished out the alphabet with the letter Kk.  We had an amazing year and I am looking forward to the fun camp activities that we have planned for this summer!

Sing With Me

Keely Kangaroo

(to the tune: “The Farmer in the Dell”)

Keely Kangaroo

And Keely’s kiddie too,

Will fly a kite and kick a ball

And play a big kazoo.

Kangaroo Hop

(to the tune: “Skip to My Lou”)

Hop, hop kangaroo hop.

Hop, hop kangaroo hop.

Hop, hop kangaroo hop.

Hop, hop, hop until you drop!

Colorful Frames…

I love owls and my daughter loves owls!!  I had gotten her the owl art from Ikea for her bedroom last fall.  I love the turquoise, lime and pink colors in it!  It hangs above her bed and I was wanting to add something on either side.  Every time I went to Michael’s I kept seeing the Art Minds Laser Cut Frames and thought they would be perfect hanging next to it painted in the same bright colors.  This past Saturday I could not pass them up.  The small frames were on clearance for .99 cents and the larger ones were $2!  I had already had the paints at home so we were good to go!

This adorable owl print I picked up at Ikea for $9.99.

The laser cut frames were a steal and I had to get them now, sometimes when stores put things on clearance that can be your last chance.  Michael’s had many sizes and shapes to choose from.  From 4″x4″ to 16″x20″.  The possibilities are endless with these frames.

This was the perfect Saturday night craft project!

They look so cute next to the owl print!  A super easy, inexpensive craft project.
