Cupcake Wrapper Flowers


The other day, one of my kids told me that she had to make somethings for her classmates for a project. With something of a last minute thing, we settled on making these cupcake liner flowers, attached to the end of the pencils. Well, second graders do need pencils with a pretty topper, don't they?..:D We also made some pet rocks and maybe I will keep that for another post. It was fun making pet rocks too.

For now, let's get back to these flowers. I think, these will be cute to pass even during valentine  gift exchange in class. Or may be make a bunch of these and make a bouquet for your school teachers with a note " Thank you for helping me bloom".

Paper Wall Art


 There is a wall in our family room where the builders thought would be nice to put a painting or an artwork. No guess work here, as to where to hang your art. There is already a little depression on the wall to hang your art work..:).

We had it even in our previous house and I had a piece which I used to hang there. Then we moved to our current place, the wall color changed and also I was bored of the previous hanging, so I have been looking for something to fill that place. Its been blank for quiet sometime now. Anything I liked was either not the correct size or not the right price.

Caramel Apple Cake


Few days back, I bought quiet a few boxes of cake mixes. And now I had a whole bunch of cake boxes, but didn't want to just make plain cakes. So looked through recipes and found this on the side of the Betty Crocker box which I liked and had almost all the ingredients to whip this one up. I skipped the pecans because of allergies, but the original recipe in mentioned below.

Twine Flowers


I love making these twine flowers. You can make these with twine, yarn or any kind of thread for that matter.

Spring Fabric Wreath


I love this spring fabric wreath. Its bright and colorful and I think its just appropriate for spring.

I had an old dress, the fabric of which I loved. The dress just went of style, so I cut strips of that dress and wrapped it around the wreath form.  I decorated the wreath, with fabric flowers. You can see the tutorial for some of the fabric flowers here. I also added a little bunting.

Painted Pinecones


Doesn't that look like the flower Zinnia..:). As the title of the post already gave it away, these are painted pinecones.

I have quite a collection of pinecones. I love how they look, even without painting or doing anything to it. I love to use them in decor during fall... during Christmas it goes on wreaths and garlands...
For spring now, I thought of painting them. Its a great project for the kids. My kids love to paint. And it was a great project for them.

Fried Biscuit Doughnut Holes


The other day we were craving some doughnuts, but could not run to the store to get some. So instead made these doughnut holes and it was gone in minutes. It was soooo good and so easy to make. If you have a tin of biscuit dough, I seriously suggest try making these...:)
