(All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

There’s something about the springtime that screams new and fresh. I love to decorate my home during the last weeks of March and into April with a few spring-inspired pieces to brighten up each of the rooms.

I love tulips and wanted to do a centerpiece on my dining room table to bring spring into that area. I have been seeing these adorable wooden boxes on Instagram and Pinterest, and knew that I wanted to incorporate one of those somehow into my DIY Farmhouse centerpiece. I found the perfect items at Michaels and Hobby Lobby and wanted to share the outcome with you all. The best part? This is definitely a frugal project and will cost you under $15! I love that you can interchange the flowers throughout the year too!

Here are the items that you will purchase and where you can purchase them:

At Michaels, you will purchase the Tabletop Wood Tray by Ashland  Please note that in-store there are 2 different sizes and they are both on sale this week for 60% off. The larger sized one is $19.99 with 60% off and the smaller one (the one that I purchased) is $16.99 with 60% off. In addition, you can get and extra 20% off sale items with the coupon HERE. Just show on your phone or mobile device. With the coupon, you will pay around $5.80 for the tray.

At Hobby Lobby, purchase 4 of the Open Top Glass Bottles on sale for $0.99 each and a bundle of the miniature tulips for $7.99. Use the 40% off coupon on the Hobby Lobby app for the tulips since they are not on sale this week. That should drop the price to $4.79 for the bundle. Your total should be under $15 for all of the items.

To assemble, simply cut apart your tulips and place them in the jars. Place the jars evenly in the wooden tray and voila, you have a new spring centerpiece that is both beautiful and versatile! Please send me a pic if you do this DIY project!

DIY: Kid’s Homemade Slime Recipe

(All posts may contain affiliate links and/or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

Are the kiddos driving you crazy yet on Summer break? One thing that you can do to occupy their time is to make homemade slime! I recently did this with Brady and we had a blast! This recipe is super easy and literally takes less than 5 minutes to prepare.

Slime Ingredients:

8oz. of Glue. (I used 8oz. of CraZArt Washable White Glue)

1 TBSP of Baking soda

Your choice of food coloring

2 TBSP of Contact solution

 

Slime Directions: 

Place the 8oz. of glue into a bowl.

Add the baking soda and mix together.

Add food coloring until it is the desired color you prefer.

Add in the contact solution.

Mix together until a ball forms and the mixture becomes harder. The trick here is to keep adding contact solution if the slime is still too sticky to the touch. This cannot be any easier to prepare and it is very budget-friendly too!

Enjoy! Brady and I had so much fun making this!
