DIY Halloween Tombstones!


This is a fun project for the kids and everyone else to. All it takes is:

An empty box
 packing paper
paint
markers
sponges, and paint brushes


First crinkle your packaging paper so it has some texture to it. Then wrap your box like a gift, don't worry if it isn't perfect your going to be painting over it. 


Next put on a coat of white paint and let dry.


 Once the first coat is dry add a coat of dark grey (I didn't have any grey so I made dark purple instead) Use a sponge to apply this coat so it gets a stone look.


Let that dry and then you can either continue with another coat just a couple shades lighter like I did (add white to the darker color) Or you can keep it dark. 


Once it is dry add your artistic touch and create your tombstone. I thought this one was funny. And now you have your very own amazing and super simple tombstone. You can create a whole graveyard if you want and keep them outside but you would need to apply a clear coat to weatherproof them!

Our youth centre provided a free meal to all the youth who attended here as well as a nice warm place to hang out in a safe environment. All I need is your votes and we can get a fund to build a new centre!

DIY Table Revamp - Guest Post

Hi all! I'm Tiffany from This Motherhood is Brought to You by Xanax and I am so excited to be a part of the Guest Post Swap and to be Amanda's swap partner! I love love love her idea on how to make indoor snowballs with egg cartons. I am definitely going to have to try that with my kiddos since my smallest one has decided that it has to snow for Christmas. Poor baby doesn't know snow is hard to come by in Alabama :( For my guest post I wanted to share a little DIY with you guys that involves duct tape! A few months ago my daughter's little chair that goes with her table she sits at every day tore and she made it worse by pulling all of the stuffing out of the seat! What started out as a quick fix turned into a great idea. She loved her seat so much that she has now decided that her table has look cool too so being the smarty pants that she is, she tore her table!
