Cookie Jar Re-Do

I threw a baby shower back at the begining of this year, the theme was "cookies & milk"
I picked up four of these goodies at good will for $5 bucks for all of them!
They've just been hanging out in my garage since the shower, getting no good use!
I had a crafty idea of what to do with them!
yep you guessed it, something for the nursery, making all the bows I've been telling ya'll about, I needed somewhere to store them! So I painted those nasty wood tops in bright colors to match all the rest of the goodness going on in the nursery, had hubby put up a shelf, and VOILA!!! Bow goodness :)! Now go to the thrift store and find these cookie jars and start painting away!

Diaper Clutch and Wipe Case

I am so excited about this project because they both turned out SOO CUTE!!
I know I am gonna have the cutest baby on the block, and she is gonna have the cutest accessories :)
For the wipe case I followed this tutorial exactly, with the exception of adding ribbon and a singed flower to the top.
As for the diaper clutch, I guess I am gonna have to make a tutorial, because I kinda winged that one, and it looks fantastic! I just love it. It fits 6 newborn diapers, but is wide enough to go all the way up to size 4 diapers.
I also added a singed flower to spruce it up a bit, will be posting more on those later because I have been making those up a storm, she is gonna have so many bows for her hair! Can't Wait!!! Just 2 weeks left and we will be adding a new member to our little family!!!

Bird Mobile

One day I will learn to take pictures like the rest of the bloggy world, but for now these will work. However I must say this bird mobile looks SOOOO MUCH cuter in person!!!
I *gasp* when in Babies R Us and I saw the prices of mobiles ... oh my!! So I made my own for about $5 bucks! Getting my inspiration here but making it a tad different!

Don't you just Love it??
Again bear with the pictures, but here is a better close up of one of the tiers. so cute!! I think its fun and whimsicle!

This is what you need to make it:
1 small embriodery hoop
1 large embriodery hoop
scrap book paper
fishing wire

I took the hardware off both embriodery hoops (making 4 hoops when taken apart) be careful not to split the wood of the hoops when taking off the har ware, then I painted them several times each and let dry. In the meantime I just free-handed the bird onto scrapbooking paper and cut out, when hoops were dry I hole punched the bird, put a ribbon through, and hung it onto the hoop *I hot glued the ribbon into place* I then tied the hoops together with ribbon, and hung from ceiling with an eye hook and some fishing wire.

Go On Go make your own now! You know its too cute to pass up!
