DIY St. Pattys Day Crafts for Kids

I can't believe its St. Patricks Day again!

Did your kid have to build a leprechaun trap in school? Like, really? I totally stole that project from her and went to town. ( don't send a craft addicts child home with a craft project). Just sayin.

I think the cutest thing about the holiday are the super creative and fun DIY crafts for the kids. Ya know like I can satisfy my addiction to DIY projects and totally not neglect my kids. Anywho, I love these super cute St. Pattys Day kids crafts.

It's Pink and Gold Everywhere

I've become a sucker for two things. Gold and Pink. Anything in that color palette gets me really. I blame it on Pinterest. Pinterest did this to me. I wonder if there is a support group for women who are suffering from an extreme addition color palette. So, in honor and to satisfy my insatiable urge to pin something pink and gold on Pinterest here are a few of my favorite things. I sung the last 5 words in that last sentence.

Leave it up to me...

I've become magically obsessed with everything fall. From acorns to pumpkins ( yes, I still have them in my entry way) to leaves and even branches from my backyard I just cant help! So, when I saw these painted leaves I immediately thought about my last DIY fall project with my sharpie pumpkins and started doing a little happy dance in my seat with excitement about the idea of trying to sharpie a few leaves for my Christmas mantel. 

Here are a few really amazing DIY leaf decorating ideas. (sources below post)

Going a little tribal: Halloween Edition

I ended up finding these super cute mini white pumpkins at my supermarket and thought the pumpkin gods had dropped down from above to say "Buy me, I'm cute" So, I did, and well here is what I did with them ( links to tutorials below!)

DIY Fall Entry Way

Hello!!! Do I always start my blog posts like this? Anywho! I am so excited to share a few things with all of you fancy-face readers. First among my ramblings, I'd like to share a few things I've learned about my home this morning, because if I shared things I learned about my home in general over the past month, you would all fall asleep.

So, this morning I had amaze-ball lighting in my front entry way, and with a crying 5 week old, and a 2 year old eating chips on the stairs I managed to snap my Halloween / Fall entry way. Oh, yes that's what I learned-- the front of my home has the best natural lighting at noon.

Another major announcement is that baby number four has arrived! He's amazing and makes our family complete. And  now, he'd like to make his blogging debut by sharing a few words:

Kidding.

Okay, so for my fall entry way, a few things have changed since I last shared my entry way.

I wanted to create a modern take on the traditional Halloween colors so I opted for my fav color palette; white, and gold. The entry totally fits our family, because up until last year we didn't celebrate Halloween as a family for religious reasons, but always decorated and had family time with crafts and such to make the kids feel included.

So, here's how we styled our entry way this year!

Master Bedroom Reveal!!!

So in my brain I am doing a tiny little dance for finally finishing my master bedroom. I can't move actually because I am almost 37 weeks pregnant with my fourth baby at this time, so please do the jig for me. Or shimmy. I love the shimmy.

Anywho--without any further ado here is my finished master bedroom. I DIYed, thrifted and shopped for the past 3 months to complete it before the arrival of our baby boy who will be sleeping with us ( yup, we're co-sleepers) for at least the first 15 months of his life. Mkay?. So consider this a nursery / master bedroom. Or a nuster bedroom if you will.

Don't forget to scroll down to the bottom of the post to see the sources and all of the wonderful vendors we worked with for this shoot.
