Sweet Saturday #22: Sweet Room Decor Idea

I believe this post will mark my first craft-related feature. Since having a toddler, we have been doing all kinds of arts and crafts projects, mainly very simple ones that involve crayons, paint, and pom-poms. At Target, they sell cheap little bags of crafty things in their $1 Spot section, and time to time I pick up a few things like pipe cleaners and recently these sparkly heart and flower-shaped foamies. At the time, I had no idea what we'd do with them, but then one day, inspiration struck...

For her last birthday, Lily got a bunch of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse flash cards. She basically just liked to take them out of the box and throw them all over wherever she was playing at the moment, leaving yours truly to clean them all up after she was through. They had become rather bent up, but still very cute and usable, and she just loves anything Disney, so I thought I could figure out something to create with the cards and the foamies...

It was pretty simple. I cut the red boarders off...

Then glued each freshly border-less card onto the foamies.

 Next, I punched holes onto the tops, then used scrapbook ribbon to tie and link them together.


I also got some heart-shaped ones. I gave them to Lily to see what she'd want to do with them, and she promptly pulled them onto the floor and enjoyed their sparkliness.

So simple! I also made one that hangs vertically against the wall. For that one, I merely glued the foamies directly onto a long piece of ribbon, then added a few sparkly pom-poms for embellishments.

You may think this is off-course for what I normally blog about, but I think using your brain for creative purpose strongly coincides with supporting total body health. Lily has been nothing but an inspiration to me for this part of my our creative development, and I am more than pleased by that :)

Lily is getting really good at learning her colors and shapes, so this garland also helps with that. The Disney characters don't hinder that at all either ;) I invite you to link-up any cute craft ideas you have today, especially if it's fall-related since it's that time of the year again! I just finished my fall wreath, which I may share on a later post.
