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.

Keep reading to learn how to make this cute little wreath!

When I saw a challenge at The CSI Project to create something with items from the dollar store, I knew exactly what I wanted to try: painting glass! This tutorial will show you how incredibly easy it is to paint a dollar store glass candle holder to match your home decor or party theme.

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.

I showed you how to make a basket for a princess here, but what about the boys?
I have three sons myself, so I know firsthand how hard it is to find
crafting projects for boys. This metal basket got the seal of approval from my guys. I hope yours will like it, too!

Would you believe that this started as a basket from the Dollar Tree? I liked that it was painted silver (perfect for a princess) and decided to use tulle to dress it up!
