It's Summer, Time for a Craft!

This summer has been such a whirlwind for us entertaining. We had a small break before company and we spent a day doing a craft. :-) I'm playing catch up because this was over a week ago. :-) But wanted to be sure I included it as part of our summer fun. :-)

We bought glasses from the Dollar store and spray painted them white. Then bought flowers there also to create personalized vases. Using permanent markers we got started on our creations.

                       Hayley hand drew hers first then taped it to transfer onto her cup/vase.

         We had fun just doing our own things and making them with things that make us smile.

The next couple are different angles of my vase. I didn't get super detailed with my art skills this time, lol.

                         Just wanted something that would make me smile when I saw it. :-)

           Hayley has quite the artistic touch and the face she drew turned out really well on her vase.

We used them as vases but they would be great for pens, markers, pencils, makeup brushes, real flowers and so much more. Just a cute, inexpensive craft for summer time. :-)

                                                    More catch up posts coming soon.
