Bottle Cap Bracelet (Superhero Version!)


My oldest sons are VERY excited about the new Avengers movie opening this weekend, and they are passing the time by reading books and googling the different superheroes.  I always struggle with finding "boyish" crafts I can make for them, so I was excited to see if this idea would work.

Jute Flower Bouquet


When I saw this trio of buckets at Tuesday Morning for just $10 I snatched it up!  Then I had to figure out what to put in them!  I decided that jute would look great with the antiqued buckets, so I played around and came up with jute flowers (inspired by hydrangeas) with upholstery tack centers.

PBK Inspired Family Workspace

 I love to ogle the Pottery Barn Kids catalog when it shows up in my mailbox, but I can't bring myself to spend *that* much on some of their pieces.  I wanted to turn our breakfast nook into a family workspace where we could do homework and craft together, but I didn't want to spend a lot on it.  By turning to PBK for inspiration and then shopping my house I was able to come up with a room I am very happy with!

Basket for boys


I showed you how to make a basket for a princess here, but what about the boys?

crafting projects for boys.  This metal basket got the seal of approval from my guys.  I hope yours will like it, too!
