DIY Stencil Dog Bed


Sebastian and I were thrilled to receive these new Peel & Stick Mod Podge Stencils from our friend Amy Anderson. This particular one is still just as sticky after having finished the entire bed so we'll be using it lots more around the house.  Yes!


INSTRUCTIONS:
What you'll need: One dog bed, Mod Podge Stencil, fabric paint, spouncer.

This stencil will work on most dog beds and flat-surfaced fabrics.  We removed the tag and positioned the stencil right over it.  Use fabric paint and a spouncer to get this look.  Work your way around entire bed by lining up the stencil with the pattern as you go.


These stencils are sold at Michael's Stores.  Look at Sebastian thinking about getting his paws on the entire collection.  Ha!

DIY Paw Print - Heart Edition


Love is in the air!  This cute little wine bottle is the sweetest keepsake and perfect for displaying flowers.


INSTRUCTIONS:
You'll need FIMO Air Light in white (clay that air dries), heart-shaped cookie cutter, wine bottle, strong glue, vinyl spackling, sand paper, gold spray paint, and white spray paint.



This project is super fun and easy.  Sebastian says it's a "must do!"  Also, we are so happy with the Fimo Air Light clay.  It's soft and easy to work with.  We highly recommend it for any DIY paw print project!

DIY Crayon Art


We can't help but notice the crayon art movement when we browse pinterest.  Wow!  I just had to try one myself.  I wanted it to look like an abstract Sebastian.  But as it turns out, crayons have a mind of their own!  This is my second attempt.  I recommend doing a practice one first and be prepared for it to look nothing like what you had planned.  BOL!

INSTRUCTIONS:

What you'll need - Artist Canvas (the one in this photo is a 16X20), pack of crayons, toothpicks, blow dryer, pencil, black and white paint, small paintbrush.

Melting crayons with a blow dryer turns out to be quite a mess (I learned from my first try) so I covered my table with paper and built a cardboard shield to block all of the flying specks of crayons.


Make sure to chop up a bunch of crayons in 1/4" pieces or less before you start.  A small piece of crayon goes a long way!  I used toothpicks to hold them down to keep my fingers out of the way of the hot blow dryer.



There you have it!  I love how colorful it is.

Last Minute DIY Halloween Costume - Cereal Killer!


Cereal Boxes - One size fits some.  HA!

This is such an easy costume anyone can make.  The longest part is waiting for the glue and blood to dry.

INSTRUCTIONS:

You'll need:
Cereal box
Scissors
Hot glue gun or Fabri-Tac glue
Black and silver paint
 Red 3D paint.



That's it!

Make sure you make those arm holes big enough.  This thing was a pain in the fluffy butt to get on and Sebastian wasn't too thrilled about it either.  Too bad models don't get to pick what they wear.  Hehe (evil momma laugh).




XOXOXOXO,
Erika and Sebastian

Happy Halloween from Sebastian


Sebastian and I had a blast yesterday at the Pumpkin Patch trying to determine which one he'd fit in just right.  Here's Sebastian posing with about 10 onlookers behind me.  He always causes a scene when he goes into model-mode.


Then we decided to take a few before photos with our chosen pumpkin incase our idea of sitting in the pumpkin didn't work out.  But as usual, Sebastian lives up to his rep.


Gettin' comfy.


Awe, look at those little feet!




XOXOXOXO,
Erika and Sebastian

DIY No-Sew Mini Dog Crown

I don't know why I have a tendency to tilt all of their hats to the side.  But isn't it cute?!?!  This is my new favorite hat. 


We are clearly on a toilet paper roll "roll."  Get it?  ha!  There's so many little hats you can make from a toilet paper roll that there's no stopping us now.  This is also a no-sew tutorial, woohoo!  Anyone can do it.  

You'll need: One toilet paper roll, scissors, hole punch, blue paint (or pink!!!), paint brush, gold glitter paint, white fur, rhinestones, and glue.









XOXOXOXOXO,
Erika and Sebastian

DIY Mini Sailor Hat

Well it's just a coincidence we happen to be posting this cute little sailor outfit on Columbus Day, aye? This is such an easy little Halloween costume to make and the hat base is made from a toilet paper roll.  Oh yeah!


You'll need: a toilet paper roll, some felt, staples, elastic string, and paint.

We traced the bottom of a wine bottle on the felt to get the circular shape.  The bottom of wine bottles are about 3" in diameter so it worked out perfectly!
