Today we have Laura from Journey Chic. I virtually met Laura during our SITS Girls 31 Days to Build a Better Blog Challenge. She’s a Boston gal like me, who’s on a journey to live stylishly by finding and making great stuff at prices that won’t make the average wallet squeal in fear. You relate to her already, right? Let’s welcome Laura to The Cool Kids’ Table.
Hello Beautiful Spitup readers! Like Eve, I have a little boy. He’s only 14 months old, so I still have a few years before he trots off to school, but for many of you last week marked the first few days of the next grade. So while you’re at the store picking up last-minute supplies for your little ones to take to class, grab a few extras for yourself to create some fun, colorful arts and crafts to celebrate this special time.
Pick up a few handfuls of your kids’ Crayons and dare yourself to draw outside the lines. With your trusty hot glue gun and a box o’ crayons, you can create so many interesting things for your home.
From top left:
- A carboard circle and fabric flowers dress up crayons for a wreath to celebrate the school year.
- For unique wall art, glue your crayons to foam board or canvas, then use a hairdryer to melt them enough so that they drip down. Allow to try, then turn the board or canvas upside down and repeat so the Crayon drips meet in the middle.
- An inexpensive frame is easily dressed up by cutting Crayons to fit and applying them with glue.
- Print out a letter in your favorite font, cut the Crayons to fit over the text, apply them with glue and fit in a shadow box for a cool monogram.
- Make hitting snooze a bit more interesting by adhering Crayons to a simple clock.
- A special place to show off your child’s art is created with a corkboard and crayons.
Thanks so much for having me, Eve! I hope you’ll visit me over at JourneyChic, where I blog about parenting, fashion, décor, and DIY.
