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!

Adorable DIY Valentine Bubbles

Monday, February 4, 2013

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
spray paint
thick craft wire
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.
