It’s almost that time of year…..the time where all I do is talk/think and pin about Halloween, where everyone around me either finds my enthusiasm about the holiday really annoying & weird or adorable & fun. I just can’t help being excited for the holiday!! Who doesn’t love bringing out their dark side to create creepy and wicked things…..so it’s just me then? Lol Anyways, for all you weirdos (like myself) who are looking for a kid-friendly/less disgusting apothecary jar option, you’ve come to the right place!
Have you ever thought those apothecary jars look amazingly creepy and just really cool to incorporate for your Halloween decor? Have you ever read up on what kinds of things go into them?! Have you ever thought, “Gross, what if my crazy toddler touches one of those and breaks it onto the floor – what kinda mess would I be cleaning up and what kind of smell would go with it?” Continue reading “Food Free & Kid Friendly Apothecary Halloween Jars”
If you are a parent involved in coaching or managing your child(ren)’s sports team, hats off to you! Being involved is very time consuming but so rewarding at the end of the day. My family didn’t play a lot of sports growing up, mostly because we didn’t have a lot of money, but I’ve made it my goal to participate in any activity with my kids, whether it be tossing a ball in the summer, to cartwheels in the backyard, to coaching/managing their team. I believe in a healthy and fit lifestyle for my kids and the best way of having that is through demonstration.
These necklaces were a hit, not only with the kids, but the parents too. Many of the parents thought they were bought from a store and couldn’t believe that they were made from a Home Depot washer! Why thank you, thank you very much! ;D
Here are the supplies you’ll need for this craft….

If your girls are anything like mine, they LOVE accessories such as headbands! I was tired of having all of their headbands shoved into a drawer, so I searched Pinterest and Etsy for some ideas and decided to make myself a headband holder.
I will show YOU how to make it step by step! Here’s a list of the items that you’ll need…
- A Roll of Paper Towel (with paper towel still on it) or a Larger Sized Tube
- Foam (only if you’re using a larger sized tube instead of paper towel)
- Pillow Case or Fabric
- Wood Pedestal (About $3.00 in the wood section of your local craft store)
- Paint and Paint Brush
- Hot Glue + Glue Gun
- Needle and Thread
- 2-4 Elastics
- Cardboard (Enough for two circles about the same size as your holder)
- Decoration (Flowers, Jewels, Feather Boa – Top of Holder)
I used a larger sized tube and foam for mine, but that’s only because I got the tubes free from work, but a roll of paper towel would work just as good.
