Pressed Flower Boxes DIY

Did you know that you can use a microwave to press flowers more quickly?  Well, you can and it's amazing!  Check out my video below to see just how it's done.  I used dollar store frames to create these floating pressed flower boxes and they worked perfectly. You'll need 2 square-ish type frames per project and you'll be trapping the flowers between both panes of glass.  It's so easy you'll be making these by the dozen!  It's always nice to have a little spring in the house to remind you that the gray and gloom will eventually be gone.  Sending you all much love!  Now get out there and 
Make Your Mark!
 With the right boxy frame they stand on their own!
 If you're worried about the color fading, try adding a little bit of bright food coloring to the petals and let it dry before framing

Watch how to make them here!

To remember warmer days!

Cute Fabric Mushrooms

When I was a kid I would use anything I could find for my craft projects..twigs, old fabric, tons of Elmer's glue, rocks, hardware pieces from my dad's junk box, cardboard and buttons from my grandma's huge tin.  Seriously, WHATEVER I could find.  I loved making weird sculptures and magical dioramas, but mostly I loved spending quiet time in my room listening to the radio and being creative.  When I was making these mushrooms, my mind immediately raced back to that time.  It doesn't matter what you make, being creative is what it's all about!  Make whatever your heart desires, my sweet friends, and don't forget to Make Your Mark!
 My gorgeous trio
 Magical for sure!

Halloween Treat Boxes

How many paper towel and TP tubes do you toss every week? We toss about 5 in our house!  That is a ton of fun craft projects just put into the garbage!  Why not save them and make these cute treat boxes for Halloween?  Change up the images and make them for Christmas or Valentine's Day!  Use what you have, my sweet friends, and don't forget to Make Your Mark!
 Filled with treats, spells and fortunes!
 So much more fun to open, too!

Watch how to make them here!
These are the images I used.
Just print them out on standard sized craft paper

 Happy Halloween!

Vintage Art Blocks DIY

I love mystical art and you can find tons of vintage images on the internet to create these beautiful art pieces for your decor!  Just make sure to search for high resolution images so you get the best quality.  I've included the ones I used below so you can just print them out from here!  Try this technique with any holiday.  Just change up the colors and images and you've got something new.  My favorite part is the nailhead trim around the edges.  No need to frame!  Make a cluster of your favorite images, and don't forget to Make Your Mark!

 Anything with a crystal ball is for me!
 A fortune teller is always fun, too!

  Watch how to make them here!

Perfect for Halloween!  Enjoy!
