Finger Painting Wall Décor {All Things Baby Guest Post}

 

 

All-things-baby_thumb

 
Hello!!!
I am Danielle from The Ullrich Family Adventures. I am a stay at home mom of two little ones!  Blase who is 4 and Grace who is 16 months. 
 
I have one blank wall in the kids toy room that drives me crazy!  I found on pinterest a craft with the kids names and finger paint!  (source)
 
So I changed it just a little instead of their whole names I just did their first initial. 
 
Here is what you need:
Canvas
Painters Tape
Finger paint
(Make sure your finger paint is washable! You will see why)
 
I got every thing ready before I told the kids what we were doing. Then we headed outside into the grass with our stuff!  The hardest part was making their letters.  I just winged it.  I used some long pieces and then I cut a lot of small pieces to make the letters look right.
 
Blase with his B
 
Grace with her G
 
Blase jumped right in and actually I wish he would have stopped before everything was just a greenish hue.
 
Grace started off ok.  She only tried to eat the paint once.  But then she discovered how much fun it was to squish it in her hands.

 

She then decided that it was more fun to paint her shirt and her hair then painting her canvas.

 
Once they were done painting I took them and left them on the porch to dry before peeling off the tape.
.
 
 
Once they were completely dry I carefully peeled off the tape.
I think that they turned out pretty good.  I think that maybe in the next day of so I will put the year in the bottom corner so we always know when we made them!

 
 
Hope you enjoyed this little project and be sure to stop by my blog!

Taggy Baby Blanket Tutorial {All Things Baby Guest Post}



All things baby







Hi JIAD readers!
My name is Kara and I'm a creative mommy blogger over at Mine for the Making.


 


I love sharing tutorials, recipes, printables, frugal decor ideas, mommy adventures, fashion, and all things DIY. I enjoy painting and designing wooden signs and I also LOVE making jewelry and hair accessories for my shop. Today I am sharing a handmade baby gift that any baby will love!


Enter in...






Supplies:

-2 pieces of coordinating fabric, each 12in x 12 in

-Multiple pieces of ribbon cut in different lengths

 (anywhere from 2in to 4in...I didnt actually measure though)

-Sewing machine and notions





(Pardon the bad lighting... this was a nighttime project.)


Tutorial:

-First start by cutting your fabric and ribbon.

-Fold your ribbon pieces in half and pin to one of the pieces of fabric. Pin it so that the ribbon is laying on the right side of the fabric, facing in (look at picture collage above).

-Lay the other piece of fabric on top, right sides together and pin in place.

-Sew all the way around (remembering to back stitch at the beginning and end) except for a small opening to turn right side out.

-Turn right side out through the hole. Press with an iron.

-Go ahead and top stitch all the way around the blanket. Be sure you sew over the small hole as well (picture not in collage).

-DONE!






Such a simple, adorable, handmade baby gift... don't you think?

This Taggy Baby Blanket is obviously for a girl, but they are great for little misters too!



Babes love the different textures of the ribbon on their fingers...something to pull or chew on is always good, right? {winks}

Thanks for hanging out with me again at JIAD!!
Lots of love and blessing sent to the JIAD home!

I'd love for you to stop by my place and say hi sometime!
