I got this idea off of Pinterest.com. They used colorful m&m's as their filling but I used "eggs" instead..
- cake mix
- kit kats
- filling candy (m&m's, robin eggs)
- mix and bake cake according to box
- frost cake
- begin putting the kit kats around the cake one by one
- once those are on, carefully wrap your ribbon around and tie a bow
- fill the top with the filling...
Now you have a completed Easter Basket cake <3 <3 I was so surprised how great it came out... It also gave me a ton more confidence on making and baking :)
So I finished it! My first actual sewing project that consisted of more then going in a circle. :) I just basically hemmed up the sides.
- fabric (I used 1 1/2 yards)
- sewing machine, thread
- Pin all the edges up
- begin sewing following in a straight line, taking the pins out as you go.
This project is like the first big stepping stone I took in my sewing. I'm very proud of how it turned out... :D
The finished project!
Lets just say I LOVE CRAYONS!!! I love how many colors there are and how many different things you can do with them. This project I did get the idea from stumbleupon.com and pinterest.com. I just added my own flare by making it smaller and writing on it with crayons.
- crayons (box of 64 works best and pick out colors that you don't want depending on the size of your canvas)
- hair dryer
- lots of covering so you don't get wax on anything
- hot glue, hot glue gun
- pick the design or pattern you want with the crayons
- begin hot gluing them onto the canvas
- make sure they are very dry before you begin heating
- take the hair dryer to the crayons and begin melting them, the tops with overflow down the paper so it will be messy
- let it dry for 24 hours before you move it.... it will make a huge mess if its still wet
- add your own ideas... write on it... bedazzle it... anything :)

Well, for this project it was an idea I got as I was walking through a local thrift store. I saw this old alcohol bottle and was inspired. To go along with the rustic country look in our house I painted it a spotted brown. I then took a stencil of a rooster and painted it red, to match the color scheme.
- bottle, dish, ect.
- paint, paint brushes, sponges
- Start by painting your dish.
- Once it is dry, tape on your stencil and paint
- Let that dry, and add more of your own style if you would like
