Messy Summer Fun with Wet-Nap!

Kid Made BBQ Sauce

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Wet-Nap but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #showusyourmess  http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Is it just me or has this winter seemed like the longest one yet?  I live in the south where it’s normally unbearably warm. As crazy as it sounds for a born and raised Texan, I cannot wait for the heat!!! Summer means picnics at the park, outdoor BBQ’s, beach days, hiking and then some.  Alice loves to play outside. She loves to create and build and always has dirt under her nails. I’m a proud mommy of a messy girl that loves to get dirty. To me, it means she’s using her imagination, expanding her brain, getting some sun and exercising her body.

At the park, beach or the backyard, getting her clean before she eats is easy with Wet-Nap wipes! Alice and I thought of a cute and fun gift idea for those family picnics at the park or backyard BBQ parties we are sure to be invited to this summer.

We made a fun Clothespin Wreath that will hold the individually wrapped Wet-Nap Antibacterial Hand Wipes. You can give this as a gift or put up at your own party or picnic. It’s a perfect and convenient way to ensure your guests can keep there hands clean!

Creating the Clothespin Wreath is really easy. First you’ll need either a wire circle or cut out a circle from a sturdy piece of cardboard.  To create the pretty clothespins, I cut strips of paper and glued them onto the clothespins.  Then I positioned them and hot glued them into place. You can position them in any fashion.Once finished, I attached a strip of burlap and a box to use as a hanger. Added my new Wet-Nap Hand Wipes and hung up our new messy summer fun decor piece!

Backyard BBQ Clothespin Wreath

After Alice and I made our Clothespin Wreath we decided we need to get messy! Ya know, so we could try out our new wreath.

Alice LOVES to cook and so I came up with an easy homemade BBQ sauce recipe that kids can make and enjoy!

Recipe type: Sauce
Cuisine: BBQ
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 4 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Pickapeppa Sauce
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon mustard powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
Instructions
  1. Mix ingredients in a bowl and stir until well blended. (If you don't have Pickapeppa Sauce you can use any steak sauce or Worcestershire sauce.)Then transfer sauce to a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium to low heat. Once it simmers remove from heat and let it cool a bit before using.

We decided to test Alice’s new homemade BBQ sauce!! Alice wanted BBQ’d Hot Dogs and so that is what we had.

Messy BBQ Summer Fun

I must say, her new sauce was DELICIOUS!! We loved our BBQ’d Hot Dogs!! Cleaning up before and after eating during our backyard BBQ was easy with our new Wet-Nap Antibacterial Hand Wipes and if felt good knowing my families hands were nearly germ free!

I found the Wet-Nap Hand Wipes at Walmart for under $2, for either the canister or box of individual packets. They are a MUST for any outdoor summer fun. Throw some in your beach bag or take them along in your hiking backpack. They are a great way to keep your kids hands clean and your own, too.

Now, go get ready for some MESSY SUMMER FUN!!

Bright Colorful Whimsical Christmas Mantel and Argyle Wreath

I made this bright, colorful, whimsical Christmas mantel and argyle wreath last year. I was so busy with my new job as an early childhood teacher that I never got around to writing up a post about it. It was such a colorful fun mantel I just had to share it with y’all this year!

Bright Colorful Whimsical Christmas Mantel Collage It really was so much fun to create.  First I painted my wood fence board .

Remember this Fall Mantel?

wood-fence-fall-mantel-2

Well, I painted over the board for my Christmas mantel.  Bright Colorful Whimsical Christmas Mantel

Then I added some glittery ornaments I found at Walmart, a small felt bunting banner, yarn wrapped pom pom Christmas trees, a yarn wrapped argyle Christmas wreath, yarn garland, glittery snowflakes, Christmas tree candles, a wire wrapped Christmas tree and a Santa and Alice picture.

The yarn wrapped pom pom Christmas trees were easy to make and SO CUTE!

The yarn and felt argyle Christmas wreath is my favorite! I love the bright fun colors.

I loved the traditionally colored Argyle Christmas wreath I made the year before and thought to make a bright fun colorful one in non-traditional Christmas colors.

I made felt diamonds, wrapped over in turquoise yarn then added felt rosettes in coordinating colors and a few ice crystallized red berries.

Isn’t it so much fun? Do you decorate in traditional Christmas colors or do you like to venture outta the box and go for something a little different?

The year before I went with a very traditional Christmas mantel.

I love it, I do, but the next year I thought to go with some whimsical bright fun colors and my family and my baby girl loved it!

I would love to know what you think! Traditional or non traditional Christmas decor and colors?

Back To School Pencil Wreath Tutorial

This cute Back to School Pencil Wreath can be used for a Back to School Party or a Back to School Photo Backdrop. It was really easy to make and I’m going to show you how!

Back To School Pencil Wreath Tutorial

Here is what I used.

pencil wreath supplies

LOTS of pencils, 2 pieces of cardboard, hot glue, white, yellow and black paint.

First, I cut out a large circle from one piece of my cardboard.  BTW, I cut out my cardboard using a bowl at a stencil. I then started to place the pencils.

DSC04566b DSC04567b

Its a tricky thing placing the pencils! I wanted to glue them right away and then would noticed that either they were even or I just didn’t like it.

DIY Pencil Wreath Ideas

Then this would happen. It happened quite a few times!! :/

So, eventually when I was happy with the design I actually marked each pencil so that I could put them all back on with the hot glue in the same design that I had finally decided on.

DIY Pencil Wreath for School Tutorial

Now, I put TONS of hot glue over the pencils to glue on the top piece of cardboard.

DIY Pencil Wreath Tutorial Back To School DIY Pencil Wreath

Once the glue had dried I painted the top circle cardboard cut out. I FORGOT to take pictures of that!!! I painted the circle black, used the yellow to paint a faux ruler on the edge and used white for the letters. If you by flat or matte paint the white on black looks just like chalk. Only one layer needed!

Back To School Pencil Wreath How To Back To School Pencil Wreath

That cute little apple my hubby made. He cut it out of card stock because I “it just needs something more”! HAHA! But seriously, that little apple was the icing!

SO cute right!?? You could make this as a gift too! Just had the teachers name, maybe something like Ms. Janet is an A+ Teacher!!

I used this wreath for a photo backdrop.

Back to School Photo Backdrop Tutorial

You can read about how I created that backdrop in my Back To School Photo or Party Backdrop Tutorial post!

BTW I have a post of 101 FREE Back To School printables. The cute signs and banners you see above can be found in this post.

Have you made a pencil wreath before? Or have you ever thrown a Back To School party or had a Back To School or First Day of School photo shoot?? I would love to hear about it.

Thanks for stopping by!
