Toy Box Idea Roundup

So I have a toy box that I bought at a thrift store a few years ago. I've painted it Green and it is currently a creme color. (I'd take a picture of it but its in storage with all of our other house hold goods.) I plan on doing something fun with it for John's side of the bedroom. (Our kids are going to share a bedroom since we need an office.)

 Here is some awesome inspiration I found.

While looking on Pinterest I have gravitated to the crate style of toy boxes so I might get rid of my bigger chest for a smaller option like these.

I might end up slapping some vinyl on my toy chest. the only issue I have is that when kids can't see things they don't play with them and the chest takes up a lot of floor space. we'll see what happens. Do you have any ideas for a toy box? I hope you have a great day!

I'll Get You My Pretty Sign with Free Printable!

I love Halloween, just not the creepy stuff about it. I love this phrase from the iconic witch from The Wizard of Oz. "I'll get you my pretty!" of course I had to make a sign out of it!

I worked up a design on the Silhouette program and cut the design out in vinyl to use as a stencil. I painted it first then modge podge glitter over it. I probably could have gotten away with just glittering it. 

Abigail was helping me of course! 

Last week we had painted a few scraps orange but I wasn't sure what we were going to do with them so we used the witch from the vinyl cut out to do a negative of her. The glitter adhered so well to the vinyl that we put the glittered vinyl on another block.  

 And this is how it turned out! I love it although it is not perfect. Eventually on the other side of the board I am going to do a fall saying so that its reversible. Helps with the fact that the hubby doesn't like totes of holiday decor and jokes about how we are going to need to get a storage shed for all my stuff. (For the record I have like 7 holiday totes. thats it....)

For those who are interested in a printable, here is one for you!

for those who want to use it for vinyl here is the silhouette of it (you will need to trace it in the silhouette program.)

DIY Boxwood Wreath

I have been eyeballing Miss Mustard Seed's boxwood wreath, but I can't afford $40 for a wreath.

So I made my own from a $3 wreath from Walmart (Our dollar store didn't have any wreaths.)

I love the fresh green it brings into our house. 

If you don't have a boxwood plant, any greenery would do! (Think of christmas time and cutting some from an evergreen!)

You might need a few smaller sprigs to fill in the gaps, but the bigger ones are better and make your wreath more fuller. 

you then are going to go around the wreath and lay springs one on top of the other. If you see gaps, just fill in with smaller pieces.

Once you have done that and filled in all the little gaps, you are done!

Now I don't imagine this wreath will last during the move but we will have to see!

Hope you stay happy and healthy!
With love,

Fun Halloween Treat Poem & Printable

When my husband and I were first married I wrote this little poem to drop of treats to our University Village neighbors. I couldn't find a poem I liked so I wrote this one. I just ask that if you make a printable with it that you link back to my site and send me a photo so I can share it on this post!

Halloween Treats by Emily Hone

What’s that you hear? Is that a witch?
Screaming in her perfect pitch?

 The spiders are out! The ghosts are here!
Trick-or-Treating is coming near!

A little surprise was left here by a bat!
Right there on your very own welcome mat!

 Its droppings are sweet to the taste!
So don't let this go to waste!

You may think creepy! You may think it’s kooky!
But it’s nothing but mysterious and spooky!

Don’t be afraid! There’s nothing to fear!
It’s Halloween and the treats are here!

This surprise is good and it’s yummy!
I hope you enjoy it as it fills your tummy!

I ended up making muddy buddies as the bat poop! I got this idea from the whole marshmallows are snowman poop :)

Here is the original printable I made for this poem. Feel free to print it off, I would suggest 4 to a page, and share it with your friends and neighbors!

REMEMBER this is an ORIGINAL poem so your neighbors and friends won't have gotten it in years past!  

Come back soon for another printable and photos of what I have done with this poem! 

With love,

Home of the Free, Because of the Brave

Here are a list of supplies from Home Depot you could use for your pillows and star bunting!
BEHR Premium Plus Interior/Exterior Black Paint Sample sample $2.94
Sigman 5ft. 9in. x 8ft. 9in. Drop Cloth $14.38

Optional Rust-Oleum NeverWet $19.97 (This is sooo coool! I want to try this! it makes virtually any surface water/ liquid resistant!)  

For your pillows you are going to want to measure your pillow size. Add 1 inch for a 1/2 inch seam allowance around your front piece. For example 18x18, you will cut a 19x19 piece of fabric. For your back pieces you are going to keep the width (19in) but cut the height about 5 inches MORE than half of the height of your pillow (14in). This will create an overlap in the back for the pocket for the pillow. I did a photo tutorial but also a graphic one for you to refer to. You can always ask questions in the comments below. 

Right side out your case and you're done!

Here are the basic instructions for making Pillowcase.


But wait there's more. Did you see the bunting I made? You could make yours out of a drop cloth! 

I use hot glue for all my bunting  including the one I did for Abigail's Birthday
