DIY Spring Decor

Hey guys! It's Monday!! And it is also the first day of Spring! So I thought that I would show you how to make some Spring Decor. So today I am going to show you how to make this flower garland that you can decorate with. You can hang it up or lay it on your desk. I really like it and it is very simple to make...So lets get started!

Gather your supplies: Ribbon, a stapler, pink sticky notes, scissors, and glue.

First take two sticky notes and fold and crumple them into a flower shape. It doesn't have to look perfect.

Take one of your folded papers put glue on the bottom and put it in the other paper. 

Cut a ribbon the size of how many flowers you want to stick on it. Make about five flowers.

Staple your flowers onto your ribbon. Make sure your flowers are dry before doing this.

And your done!! Now you can either hang it up or use it with something creative!

Let me know in the comments what Spring themed things you would like to see next! Have a great day and I'll see you next week with a new post! -BloggerGirl

DIY Re-Made Chapstick

Hey guys! It's Monday! I'm so sorry that I didn't post last week I was just super busy. 
But for today's post I am going to show you how you can take an old EOS(chapstick) and turn it in to a new colorful EOS! If you don't know what an EOS is, it is a chapstick that comes in these cute containers sold by the EOS company. I love EOS but it never has any color to it, so...I thought that I could DIY it into a colorful EOS using CRAYONS!! (This is not my original idea, there are many video's on Youtube and on the internet showing how to make this but I thought I would try it out for myself) So with out further ado...Let's get started!

So first you are going to need to gather your supplies: An old EOS, coconut oil, a crayon, a spoon, a knife, and a double boiler or microwave.

First take apart your EOS container. But save your old chapstick and place it in a bowl. I used a knife to carefully take it apart. BUT PLEASE HAVE ADULT SUPERVISION WHEN DOING THIS.  

Place your coconut oil and crayon (color of your choice) in a bowl with your chapstick.

Over a double boiler (or in your microwave) melt all the ingredients down until you have a smooth consistency.

Place the middle piece on top of the top piece and screw it in.
Then fill that half with your liquid. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes. 

Once you take it out of the freezer unscrew it from the top piece and snap it back on to the bottom piece. And there you have it! It's done!

YAY I finished my new EOS and I love it!! I love the color I chose and now it actually shows up on your lips while keeping them from getting chapped. I am going to show some before and after pictures on the EOS at the very end of this post. Have a great day and I'll see you on Monday! -Bloggergirl
