This project came about from a trip to Spotlight the other day. They had a special on wooden words - I think they were between $5 and $10 and there are lots of great words to choose from.
Ella chose the words "hello love", which now hang proudly in her room.
They stay on the wall easily with a bit of Blu-Tack and are a lovely, sparkly message to wake up to each day.
What you'll need
Sparkly gems and glue
Where you'll get them Spotlight
How to make them
Voila! A lovely message to share. Options are endless.
Crafting ought to be my middle name. Happily (for me) I seem to have passed my craft-mad genes on to my children - Charlie, 7, and Ella, 5. We all love making things, so we do loads of crafting together. It's our happy place.
For me, nothing beats crafting for an easy, relaxing, calm and sociable way of entertaining my kids.
