My DIY Friendsgiving Photo booth and Props

You guys I have to say I am so in love with this simple DIY photobooth and props I made when I hosted my very First Friendsgiving. I am so excited to share them with you.

I used gold, white, and orange streamer to cover my dinning room mirror, then added string lights as an accent , and made a simple banner using doilies, gold paint, and brown card stock.
I then used an assortment of colored card stock I purchased at Michaels to make the props for the photobooth.

I really loved how cute they turned out. Not to mention how much fun we had using them at our Friendsgiving. If you have an Etsy account feel free to look up KarlitasKreations and favorite my shop, I will be posting items up soon. In the meantime here are some close ups of each prop.

DIY Easter Basket for my nephew

We bought some Blue Bunny ice cream at Walmart in a bucket. When I went to recycle the bucket I remembered Easter is right around the corner. I decided this would make the perfect Easter basket.

image

I first spray painted the outside of it all white and let it air dry. I then did a second coat and let it air dry. I didn’t want to spray paint the inside but I’m sure you can if u please. Once the basket was dry and the blue bunny label was not showing through. I pick my acrylic paint colors and decided I would paint stripes.

I was going to leave the handle as is in blue but realized it got some white spary paint on it so I touched it up with some bright blue. Thought of painting the inside all the way down but left it as is. I then sprayed it with clear coat to give it a glossy more finished look.

This is the end . .  I added a $.97 chalkboard egg sticker from Walmart and a construction paper chick to the front of it. I added tissue paper as a liner and easter grass to the inside. I decided to fill the basket with bath supplies and bath toys as he will only be turning 6 months old now in April. He loves his bath time. 🙂 So many possibilities with these Blue Bunny baskets. HAPPY EASTER!!!

My Wreath Creations

         Image
       So in October I took my son’s Pool noodle and wrapped it in yarn to make our Halloween wreath. Didn’t have to spend a penny since I used what I already had. =) Here’s how it turned out:

For a first time wreath I think it came out very nice. So Being that I ♥ed how it turned out I decided I would try to redo the wreath and give it a fall theme. Here we go:

I was so happy with the end results. This time it was my first time making Felt flowers, to my surprise it was so easy to make them. The best part being once again my cost was $0.00!!! Yay me!!! =D Ok so why not keep it going and give it a Winter make over??? Ha challenge accepted!!!!
Image
I did plan on going to Michael’s to see what I can buy but was I bored one friday night and decided to use what I could find in my stash at home. I am very pleased. . I do feel like it might be missing something. I’ll figure it out soon.
I’m so Happy with all 3 looks and love that I don’t have to purchase separate wreaths every season. What a space saver. Very cost-effective for me and oh so “Green”. Hope everyone loves them as much as I do.

Now to figure out what this years new addition to the bunch will be. Suggestions anyone????
