What is Phoomphyou might be thinking? Find out more below and learn how it makes these fabric storage trays so darn simple to make. Phoomph is a product I personally love and would use even if they were not sponsoring our video series. Y’all be sure to check them out!
I know it is just now Mother’s Day but you can never be too prepared y’all. So I am sharing a kids craft father’s day gift today. This is part of a series of kids craft videos that are going to be at Crafty Hangouts all week next week. Y’all be sure to tune into all of the videos. We are being sponsored by Phoomph this go around. What is Phoomph you ask? Well we will get to that in just a minute.
- Cover a large cone with wood grain contact paper. I picked up mine at the dollar store. Trim any excess with a pair of scissors from the side as well as the top.
- Add reindeer moss to the top of your cone with hot glue.
- Add in these great burlap flowers from Consumer Crafts randomly in the top. Secure with hot glue.
- Form an 18 inch piece of floral wire into a handle like shape and turn it in (90 degree angle) about 2 inches from both ends. Push those ends directly into the cone at the top through the contact paper. Push into the cone about 1 inch down from the top on both sides.
- Add a ribbon to the top and you are ready to hang this one on your door.
Just add water and flowers to your vase for a great wedding reception centerpiece at your wedding. What quote will you use? Are you having a french themed wedding? Maybe a wedding with a Parisian theme? These french script mason jar vases are the perfect DIY wedding idea for you!
- Use a heart wand from the Dollar Tree and remove the heart. Work in the stick that comes with the wand into the top of the heart. Then insert the bottom of your pencil into the top of the heart.
- Cut the American Crafts glitter paper into a rectangle. Make a “feather” type shape for the top of your pencil and cut fringe on both sides.
- Use a Sizzix or other method to cut a tag from scrapbook paper. Write “to” and “from” on the tag with a marker.
- Apply the feather fringe and tag to the pencil with glue strips.
- You are ready to give our your pencil arrow Valentines.
Make some of these pencil arrow Valentines for the class this Valentine’s Day. Everyone will love them plus they get the gift of a pencil at the end of the day. Be sure to visit American Crafts to buy great scrapbook supplies and embellishments. This post was sponsored but all opinions and projects are my own.
My spin on hot chocolate in a jar is packed full of fun and given in a mason jar mug.
Love these? If you want even MORE ideas, be sure to watch the video above and get the other six ideas. With 10 ideas, there is a gift in a jar for everyone on your gift giving list. For the rest of the gifts in a jar from The Country Chic Cottage be sure to check out my 5 mason jar gift ideas plus the ultimate guide to gift in jars.
- Start with 2 large red buttons, 2 medium white buttons, and 2 extra small white buttons. My buttons are provided by Buttons Galore and More.
- Cut a rectangle of black felt and use hot glue to adhere the buttons in the direction shown in the photo below.
- Cut a long rectangle of red felt and tie on for a scarf.
- Cut a strip of black leather cord and glue on for Santa’s belt.
- Cut a triangle from red felt and glue the bottom to the top of Santa’s head.
- Apply some glue to the hat and make it lay over in a “floppy” fashion. Add the smallest white button to the tip of the hat.
- Use hot glue to adhere a ribbon to the back to hang and the glue on the back will give your ornament added stability.
- Grab your wood burning tool, wood shapes, brown ink pad, burlap ribbon, baker’s twine, and buttons.
- Burn the initials into the wood with your wood burning tool. Be sure to follow all instructions and safety precautions with the tool.
- Rub edges of wood shape with brown ink to distress.
- Cut a length of burlap ribbon and tie it around your napkin.
- Tie on your wood shape with a bit of baker’s twine and a button.
- Enjoy your rustic Thanksgiving dinner table!
- Gather bottle caps, a paper towel roll, washi tape, google eyes, a red sharpie, hot glue, and scissors.
- Cut your paper towel roll to the appropriate length for a napkin ring.
- Add washi tape in three strips to the paper towel roll making sure to overlap your ends in the same area.
- Fold the washi tape over on itself for the feathers then cut to a feather shape.
- Glue the feathers on the back of the bottle cap.
- Glue the eyes and a beak made from folded over washi tape to the front.
- Draw a waddle with a red sharpie.
- Glue your bottle cap turkey to the napkin ring and use to cover up the seams in the washi tape.
- Add your napkin and place on the table.
I joined up with Carolina from 30 Minute Crafts for a fun Halloween craft video to SHOW you that this calendar can be made in 15 minutes or less. So hold onto your hats (witch hats that is) and get ready for me to make the quickest Halloween countdown calendar around.
The other two versions include my mummy made with gauze from the medicine cabinet and google eyes. Then the version with my printable. I added some eye stickers to my printable to give the lid some dimension but this is optional.
You can see how the glass paint tints the mason jar but you can still see through to the inside. Add flowers for a vase, candles for a centerpiece, or maybe even add something to the inside for a gift. Enjoy my watermelon mason jar craft this summer and all year round.

The fishing pole is a toy from the Dollar Tree that I thought was the perfect size for a wreath.
I cut the fish from various pieces of scrapbook paper that I had on hand. I just folded the paper in half and cut a fish like shape.
I used hot glue to secure all of the items to the front. Including the one fish that is on the hook.
