How to Make an Easy DIY Bedroom Door Sign

Some days you feel energized, creative, and ready to take on the world. You are Mom. Hear you roar.

There is no messy glue involved because everything is literally peel and stick. It doesn’t get much easier than that. Check out the tutorial now: then stick around below for bonus tips for mom.

Before you remove any backing, test the layout of your foam letters until you have the desired alignment.

Extra Tips and Tricks for Mom

  1. This craft is easy enough for toddlers to do since it is only placing stickers.
  2. I recommend letting older kids pick their sayings first and then letting toddlers just have random letters that are left.
  3. Younger kids may need help spelling or getting creative with the letters. For example: a sign saying “Princess X-Ing” instead of “Princess Crossing” will save S stickers.
  4. Use a cotton swab soaked in Goo Gone to gently pry it from the door. This prevents paint damage and leftover sticky residue.

See? I told you it doesn’t get much easier than this DIY bedroom door sign. Clean up the sticker backing pieces and you are done. I want to warn you to give the toddler a set amount of stickers in the beginning of the project. If you don’t, he will continue sticking them on until you have a quirky, 3-Dimensional wall sculpture on your hands. Of course, if you don’t mind being totally out of stickers, it is kind of cool looking as far as abstract art goes.

DIY Mini Pompom Monsters Kids Craft

It is time for another Creative Play Kit Craft! If you saw Monday’s DIY glittery notebook, then you know that today we’re making these DIY mini pompom monsters.

The kind of day when you forget to hit start on the coffee maker only to realize it when you go to get a cup of coffee? Have you had the kind of day when you walk into the living room after finish the dishes to see that your toddlers have ripped up all of the tissues? Oh, and tossed them all over the room like snow?

All the while your youngest daughter has been “going potty” and comes out covered in your makeup. On those days you are fuming and feel surrounded by tiny monsters that you created. Then, when you’re ready to break down in tears and wine, they run up to you and throw their arms around your leg. They look up at you with wide, adorable eyes and say, “Mommy, I love you.” That heart-melting moment when you realize that these adorable little monsters are all yours and you wouldn’t change it for the world is what inspired this week’s DIY mini pompom monsters.

11 DIY Coastal Home Décor Ideas + Merry Monday Link Party 162

Is anyone else dying to relax on a beach right now? Nothing sounds better than sitting in the hot sun with a great book listening to the sounds of the waves crashing. Unfortunately, not all of us can just take a jaunt to the ocean whenever we want. (I know. It is sad right?)  Since visiting the ocean isn’t in the cards, bring the beach to your home with these 11 DIY coastal home décor ideas. Then you can throw on some headphones with ocean sounds playing and at least relax like you’re on vacation. At least, that’s what I’ll be doing.

DIY Children’s Artwork Display

Kids love drawing, painting, and coloring. They are constantly giving you thoughtful creations of love. Unfortunately those sweet artwork gifts can start taking over your fridge, counters, drawers, and every other available space. You don’t want to hurt their feeling by getting rid of any of it but you can’t continue getting buried under art. This DIY children’s artwork display is the solution. Hang it on the wall to show off their awesome creations and create the rule that you can only keep what they want displayed on it. Older artwork gets filed away or recycled.

Materials

  • Clothespins
  • Glitter
  • Pompoms (Optional instead of glitter)
  • Mod Podge
  • Paintbrush (Optional)
  • Ribbon

 

Hang this DIY children’s artwork display on the wall to show off kid's creations and control artwork clutter at the same time!

Step 1

Give each child 5 clothespins, some Mod Podge, glitter, and a paintbrush.

Notes:

  • If you don’t want to clean up the glitter mess at the end of this craft, give your kids some pompoms instead.
  • Have each child decorate clothespins on a plastic placement for easier clean up no matter which decoration you choose.

Step 2

Add a generous amount of Mod Podge to the front of each clothespin with your paintbrush (or your finger).

Tip:

  • Skip this step if you are using pompoms.

Step 7

While they dry, cut a piece of ribbon that is 4-5 feet long.

Tip:

  • You want the DIY children’s artwork display to be long enough to hold 5 pieces of artwork at one time, yet small enough to fit on the wall that you plan to hang it on.

How totally easy is this DIY children’s artwork display? We made one for each kid. Now they can each choose 5 pieces of artwork to display at a time.

Soak Up Summer Fun with 15 Backyard DIY Activities

Yesterday we celebrated my brother-in-law’s 30th birthday with a huge party full of food, family, and fun. His parents rented a venue right next to a local park and we spent the day running around with the kids playing, swinging, and laughing. It was a particularly special day for my in-laws because when my brother-in-law was 2 years old he was diagnosed with cancer and they never knew if this birthday would even come. It is a beautiful reminder to celebrate the time that you have with your loved ones. At the end of the day we were happy, grateful, and exhausted. With that in mind, I wanted to round up 15 backyard DIY activities that let you soak up summer fun with your family.

Finger Painted Giant Tiki Men


Summer is the perfect time for outdoor parties and entertaining. Luaus are a popular theme because they are fun, festive, and make you feel like you’re on a mini-vacation. Luaus create an oasis in your own backyard complete with family and friends. This is also an easy theme to DIY. You can line your tables with fringed green plastic tablecloths to represent grass skirts. You can make your own easy invitations and you can paint your own decorations. These finger painted giant tiki men are a fun and messy luau craft that lets kids get their hands dirty. Luckily, you don’t have to worry about the mess when you unleash your Clean Squad!

Before you get started painting you need to take the family for a trip to your local Wal-Mart and pick up Clorox Spray and Viva Vantage paper towels. We love how wide the aisles at Wal-Mart are! They are perfect when you have the whole family with you. They also make it easy for kids to get in on the shopping action. Little man could even shop from Papa’s shoulders which made him infinitely happy.

Once you get home, you want to clear a large space for your painting project. We moved the table and chairs from the dining room for our project. That gave us plenty of space to work with.

Unfortunately, when we moved the furniture I found some stains from goodness knows how long ago on the floor. (Note to self, kids are messy!) Thankfully, I already had my Clorox Cleaning Spray and Viva Vantage paper towels. I didn’t even have to let the Clorox soak on the stains. The stains wiped right up. Score! Once I finished, we had a clean, disinfected surface (thanks to Clorox Cleaner’s 99.9% germ killing strength) and were ready to get started.

Once you have finished your finger painted tiki men it is time for clean-up. With Clorox cleaner this took us no time at all. Seriously, you guys, we spent less than 5 minutes getting everything cleaned up, including squirmy kids. The craft took longer than the clean-up and that’s how it should be. The fun should always last the longest. The Viva Vantage paper towels last, too. We used one on the floor and it was strong enough to finish the entire job!

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
