MHCT&M: Decorating with Rainbows

Hello friends and Happy Friday! 

 

Kara from Mine for the Making here with cute and creative ideas for decorating with rainbows! 

With spring and St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, this is a fun way to decorate for the holiday or season.

 

 

 

 

Are you ready for a happy color explosion?! 

All of these rainbow projects make me so happy! 

 

 

  These rainbow painted pots make such a cute centerpiece.  

 

 

 This rainbow felt heart garland is so easy to make… and addicting too! 

 

 

 Add a tiny rainbow pennant banner to a wreath… and some shamrocks for good measure! 

 

 

  How pretty are these rainbow sand art terrariums?! Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day or spring! 

 

 

 This felt rainbow wall hanging is so bright and fun! 

 

 

  These painted rainbow cubbies will make any corner of the house cheery! For a less permanent affect, use colored paper or vinyl so that you can remove it! 

 

 

 A movie/song quote on a painted piece of wood makes for great decor too! I love this rainbow sign

 

 

  How completely adorable is this rainbow wreath?!

 

  

 This rainbow and cloud paper banner is so simple but so cute! I’d love to hang this from a shelf or mantle. 

 

  

 This rainbow string art would be so fun to make! 

 

 

  Make a rainbow blanket to put on a bed or couch! 

 

 

 Make a pretty rainbow floral wreath and leave it up all through spring! 

 

 Use some glitter to create this lucky rainbow sign to display.

 

 

  This rainbow pom pom garland is so fun and would be easy to make while you’re vegging out on Netflix!

 

  

  This rainbow heart mobile/wall hanging is so colorful and looks pretty simple to DIY! 

 

  

 I am in love with this cute rainbow hoop art and I’d keep it up all year! 

 

 

 Doesn’t all this colorful rainbow fun make you excited for spring?! 

Here in Arizona we are already getting the spring temperatures and sunny days, which we are loving! Now, I need to go decorate everything in rainbow colors!

 

 

  

 

  Join us next Friday for more St. Patrick’s day fun! 

I hope y’all have a great weekend!

This, That, and Everything in Between: January 2018

Since February has arrived, really?!, it is time to recap our January 2018 adventures. 
 We didn’t have a crazy month but we had some fun times. 
We unfortunately started the month by saying goodbye to some of our really good friends. 
They are a fellow military family so saying goodbye or “see you later” is far too often for us but it is still a sad day especially when they become such good friends that really are more like family. Their daughter and Miss S were pretty much best friends so they definitely miss each other as well! Hopefully we will see them again soon! 
The girls started gymnastics again at the beginning of the month and this time they actually get to be in class together. They both love it and wish they could go more than once a week.
On January 6th, Travis and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary. We had a fun night planned but had to cancel it as I came down with the same virus Miss S had right before the new year so I was not up to going out. In fact, I am shocked I am actually sitting up on the couch even for this picture because I was pretty much sleeping for 2 days straight fighting a high fever. 
We picked up a new foster baby and had her for the rest of the month. She was CRAZY shy and needed some big time help with socializing her. Slowly but surely she got more comfortable with us and enjoyed everyone in the house. We just took her back this past weekend to get adopted and I am happy to say that she already has a permanent home! YAY! 
We took a family day trip back to Wisconsin Dells to play at an indoor amusement park/fun zone type place and dinner. The girls had a lot of fun! 
Before our fun day, we shopped at the local outlet mall and Miss S just HAD to get this giant Rapunzel wig. This girl LOVES wigs and playing dress up so she was so darn excited to wear it once we got home and needless to say, she has worn it a ton since! 
Toward the end of the month, Travis and I snuck away for a fun night in Madison with some friends for dinner and an acapella competition at UW. It was such a fun night just hanging out with friends and having a night away from the girls. 
We’ve had a good amount of snow this winter. It snows then has been melting but we’ve had crazy temps which means the lake by our house is good and frozen. There has been plenty of folks out on it ice fishing so we thought we’d so and have a little fun and walk around on it as well. After a little cruise on the lake, we went back to the park near it and played on the frozen puddles in the grass. We broke up some of the ice and Travis made an ice palace for the girl’s ponies that they brought with us. 
And lastly a pretty big thing happened this month… We found out that Travis was selected to be promoted to Major which also means that we will likely be moving this year at some point. We should know more on that by the end of this month. I am very proud of him and thrilled that he is being recognized for all his hard work!
 Stay tuned for our February adventures!

Rosette Heart Sign

Happy Monday! 
Did you watch the big game yesterday? 
I’m thrilled the Eagles won so Congrats to them and all of Philly! 
 But anyways, I am back again today with another project. 
 
 This is an easy project and doesn’t really take a lot of time either which is a win win! 
Supplies:
-Hot Glue Gun
-Pallet (bought this at Wal-Mart)
-Felt
-Scissors
-Paint Pen
-Glitter or stickles (optional)
I’m bringing back the felt rosettes that were pretty popular a few years ago. 
They are quick and easy to make and they always turn out so well! 
 Begin by cutting the felt in half long wise. Then cut each half in thirds.
Cut each square in a circle. You can cut it even or cut it a little curvy to give the petals of the flowers more shape.
Then cut a spiral from the outside to the inside of the circle.
Place a little bit of hot glue on the end of the felt and roll it inward.
Continue rolling until there is a flap left which is the very center of the circle.
Place hot glue on the center area and then glue the flap down to hold the flower together.
Here is the flap glued down.
Continue making all the rosettes until you have the desired amount. 
I used 2 1/2 sheets of felt for a total of 14 flowers.
If your heart is larger you will need more flowers.
Glue the rosettes onto the palette in a heart shape. 
I chose to only make the outline of the heart but you could fill it in if you’d like. 
I didn’t want just the heart so I wrote the word love under it in pencil.
I then used a white paint pen to go over the word. 
I was thrilled with it just like this but if you’ve been around here long enough, you know I also love some glitter so….
I pulled out some of my Stickles and glittered up the word love.
And it was just the right amount of glitter that it needed.
And that’s it! 
 I love how it came out! 
 I hung it above my faux mantle along with my painted bud vases and I just love the simplicity of the look. 
Have you decorated for Valentine’s Day yet?
