Howdy and happy 4th of July! I know it's been awhile. I've just been livin' life. It's cRaZy how fast time goes by right?
So...I've got a discount code below but first I have to share the flags my boys and I made in honor of the 4th of July.
Don't you just love them? I do! I told the boys wow they look like something you would buy at Target in the home decor section. We made these beauties out of stir sticks! Yep the big 5 gallon ones you get at the hardware store. We just cut them down to size, painted, glued and lastly antiqued. I think they might be on display the whole year cause I love them so much!
To celebrate I have a discount code good for 15% off your entire purchase at Cap Creations. Use code HAPPY4TH at checkout! Good through July 5th.
Have a great and safe Holiday my friends! Don't get too crazy with those fireworks!
Hey guys, I've got a cute little craft to share with y'all! These adorable diy Valentine bubbles with heart bubble wands.
These are super easy to make and a big hit!
What you need:
baby food jars
thick craft wire bubbles
wooden tags (optional)
letter stamps and StazOn ink pad or permanent marker (optional)
From the baby food jars remove the labels and baby food of course, wash and dry. Spray paint the lids in the color of your choice.
So here we go, a step by step in pictures of how to make the heart shape wand. I suggest playing around with the length of wire until you get the size of wand you want to end up with. Mine was about 8 or 9 inches to start.
Fold in half upward.
Bend back downward and start forming a heart shape.
Cross ends to make a complete heart shape.
Twist and bend ends downward leaving a bit on each end untwisted.
Roll the ends upward into themselves making a coil like end.
Ta-da!!! An adorable little bubble wand! Cute right? You know you want one! ;)
Simply fill your jar up with bubbles then add a wand and the lid. Use store bought bubbles or bubble recipe to be found at Under the Sycamore. To decorate cut strips of fabric with pinking shears to limit fraying and tie on to the jar like a ribbon. You could use regular ribbon too. I also tied on a heart shaped wooden tag on which I stamped bubbles. Instead of stamping the hearts you could write them out with permanate marker as well.
Now aren't these just adorable??? You can also play around with the color of lid and ribbon and shape/color of wand for birthdays!!! Just remember they are glass so adult supervision while small children are playing with.

Yesterday I posted the 25 Names of Jesus Countdown, which is a free printable item. Today I want to share one idea on how to display them.
Erin of Worthy of the Prize asked me to create this printable countdown, each day she will be explaining one of the 25 names and she wanted a printable to go along with it. Be sure to follow along at Worthy of the Prize. This is a great way to keep Christ in Christmas! If you haven't snagged this printable yet you can do so HERE.
The general idea for this countdown is to cover one name of Jesus each day and discuss it together as a family, also counting down the days to Christmas. There are several ways to display this countdown, here is just one!
• First print each part, front and back. You can do this at home or save the files and have a local print shop do it for your.
• After you have printed each part (front and back) cut them out.
• Next punch a hole in the middle of the left an right sides.
• Using a really long ribbon or string, slide on each part to create a long garland.
• String the entire garland around your tree or display anywhere in your home.
• Each day remove one countdown name/number. Read the Bible verse on the back side and discuss the name for that day together as a family. When you get to number 1 you will have covered 25 names of Jesus! Yeah now that's Christ in Christmas right there baby!!!
Like I said this is just one way to display it. You could also, instead of removing one each day, add one instead. This way will allow you to build your garland each day and at the end have the complete set of names for display. If you come up with something else we'd love to hear about it!!!
A description for each of the 25 Names of Jesus can be found over at Worthy of the Prize. Visit them daily as they encourage you to count down to Christmas while exploring the 25 Names of Jesus.
These are available for free for personal use or for gifting completed projects with them. I do ask however instead of making tons of copies for all your friends please direct them back here to down load their own set.
Click on each image below, when they open right click and print or save if printing at an office store.
Printable parts below are to be printed on the back side of the matching one from above. I find it easiest to print all the front parts first and then match up the back sides.
After all parts are printed cut out and use/display as you choose. Please let us know if you print them we'd love to hear how you use them!
