Making this display strip is as easy as A, B, C. We simply used metal strips, available at The Home Depot, painted them to match the room's trim and attached it to the wall at a height low enough for a child to access.
Add a cheerful face to plain terra-cotta flowerpots by dressing them in bold stripes. Terra-cotta flowerpots are a staple of container gardening. But their plain face keeps them in the background most of the time. If you'd like to turn them into works worthy of a pedestal, try this simple paint motif. The broad strips and bright contrast are reminiscent of awnings and garden parties.
Raid your scraps stash to create an inexpensive custom work of art.
Paint a canvas and paint chipboard letters.
Cover the canvas with patterned-paper blocks, the painted chipboard letters, embellishments, photos, artwork, and paper-pieced accents that correspond with the letters.
Button, button, who's got the button? Your little girl will be a style star this Spring when you make these hairclips with pretty buttons. Open the clips before attaching fabric or stacked buttons with hot glue; allow to dry overnight
Some paper napkins are so pretty, it seems a shame to use them for wiping your hands; instead, recycle a few into one-of-a-kind notecards. First, gently pull apart the napkin's layers (you want only the top, printed one) and smooth out creases with an iron on medium heat.
Using a blank sheet of paper as a work surface, lay the napkin printed-side down and spritz the plain side with Spray Mount Adhesive.
Place a blank folded notecard facedown on the napkin, pressing evenly with your hands. Turn the card over, fix any wrinkles with your fingers, and trim overhang with scissors.
