I love any excuse to make a festive treat!  And what I really love is when they’re super simple to make – these are no exception.  Every time I make rice crispie treats I wonder why I don’t make them more often – they’re SO easy.  And this Simple Patriotic Treat Idea is just basically layers of rice crispie treats – easy peasy.

They were a big hit!  And so yummy!  This post may contain affiliate links.

Simple Patriotic Treat Idea

You’ll need:

–butter, marshmallows, rice crispie treats (see recipe below)

treat sticks (I can’t remember where I got mine, but here’s another option I found)

Red White Blue Patriotic Rice Crispies

For each layer:

-3 Tablespoons butter (so 9 total)

-1 bag (10 oz) mini marshmallows (3 bags total)

-5 cups of rice crispies (15 cups total)

  1. work one layer at time.  mix each color batch separately.
  2. melt butter and marshmallows in a pot.  Add food coloring at this point.
  3. turn off heat and stir in rice crispies
  4. press layer into 9×13 pan and let cool slightly while mixing the next layer.
  5. press next layer directly on top of first layer.  repeat with 3rd layer.
  6. if desired, press sprinkles onto the top layer.
  7. cut into squares and push a treat stick into each square.
  8. wow all your friends and family

If you haven’t tried fabric spray paint, you’re missing out – you can have so much fun with it! On this project, I used it and a stencil to add a little pizzaz to some leggings.

It’s a great simple craft project to kick off summer! Here are some images you can pin to save this idea and tutorial for later. This post may contain affiliate links.

How to Stencil on Leggings

You’ll need:

Colorshop Spray Fabric Paint

White or Light Colored Leggings

Stencil in desired pattern

First up, tape your stencil to the leggings. Be sure to cover any areas that you don’t want paint on (overspray is real!)

Start from the bottom and work your way up, spraying a line of color across the stencil as shown.  Alternate colors.  No need to tape off between colors – it looks great when they overlap.

Let dry for 30 minutes (per package instructions) and then remove stencil. If adding stencil to the side of the pantleg, be sure to add to the back as well.  Open up the paint leg and match up the stencil along the seam.

Then voila!! wear and enjoy your custom design!

Because everything is better with tassels! I love this Simple Crochet Blanket – it works up quickly and easily, you’re going to want to make it over and over!

Go ahead and pin this so you can find the FREE Crochet Blanket Pattern later:

FREE Crochet Blanket Pattern

You know that I’m not the best at “patterns” – but hopefully you can follow my logic on this. You can just make it adjustable to the size you’d like – I made it baby blanket size, but you can make it however big or small you’d like it.

Follow the video tutorial below for a step-by-step visual on how to make the blanket – it’s only a couple minutes and it’ll help explain everything!

Chain desired length. Turn.

V Stitch in every 3rd chain.

Double Crochet in the last chain, then chain 2, and turn.

V Stitch into every V Stitch. Double crochet and chain 2 and turn on the end.

Continue until desired size.

Single Crochet around the entire edge.

Double Crochet around the edge into every single crochet stitch.

Make and attach tassels.

The other day I shared the TShirt design I pulled together for myself, Whatever It Takes, and loved wearing it to opening night at End Game! Well, the designing did’t stop there!

Trevor hand drew the decals and I converted them into an svg and cut file for you, wahoo! So you too can make your own Avengers Symbols Tshirt.

I know you’ll want to save this idea for later, so I have a couple of images here you can pin:

You know which drawer is the WORST in every kitchen everywhere, right?! The one with all the containers! Well Rubbermaid® Easy Find Lids have come to the rescue, these are our FAVORITE containers because they make organization a breeze!!

I know you’ll want to save this for later, so here’s a convenient pinnable image:

Rubbermaid® Easy Find Lids Sweepstakes

The time for spring-cleaning is fast approaching, and Rubbermaid® is having a sweepstakes to support better pantry organization with the help of Easy Find Lids containers. You will definitely want to enter the  Easy Find Lids Pantry Makeover Sweepstakes for a chance to win a pantry makeover valued at $5,000.

Messiest drawer or cabinet in the kitchen

We all know that the messiest drawer or cabinet in the kitchen is the one with all the containers! Lids are everywhere, nothing syncs together, it’s chaos! Here’s a prime example:

As with the rest of the world, we have been purging and clearing out and organizing all. the. things. Drawers like that one above don’t bring anyone any joy, that’s for sure!

Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids

But what does bring me joy – the Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids system – it is seriously the best! We just grabbed another set because we love ours so much.

A couple of the things I love:

Lots of the lids are universal – meaning the same lid can go on multiple containers – genius!

The lids snap to the bottom of the containers, and the containers nest inside of each other. We all know lids can cause chaos, so this is a dream come true!

Also, there are vents in the lid for microwaving – perfect!

Opening Shelving

If you have open shelving in your kitchen, stack like sizes together with lids directly underneath. It keeps everything organized and looking great. Add some splashes of color with a background tray or utensils.

Kitchen Drawer Storage

Our kitchen has all drawers, which I LOVE, but they can get out of control if you’re not careful. With drawers, if you have extra room, you can store lids next to like containers, for easy visual access when looking into the drawer.

With everything stacked, it won’t roll around or make a mess!

Using this complete system has transformed our container storage – it is SO much better. The kids can easily see where to put things back and so it says organized because it’s not hard. I love pulling the drawer out and looking in to see everything in it’s place!

I just made the cutest wreath!! I had a vision of little pots all lined up with paper flowers, and it turned out so great – love it!

I made this project during our weekly live craft club, but I knew I needed to post about it here! And I have some pinnable images so that you can save the idea for later. This post may contain affiliate links.

Mini Flower Pot Spring Wreath Idea

You’ll need:

mini pots

large embroidery hoop

cardstock to make paper flowers

crickle paper wrapping filler

–scrap wood board to fit inside wreath

wooden skewers or sticks for flower stems

small foam balls

How to make Paper Flowers

You can check out how to make the paper flowers over on the Craft Club Video.

When you make paper flowers, it’s all about DIMENSION!! Curling the edges to add depth and then layering them staggered. Hopefully I can do a quick tutorial video on that soon.

I had a few different kinds of paper flowers, I used ones from the Silhouette Design store called “3d lisianthus flower” and “rose flower”. I also used a hand punch from Fiskars called Petal by Petal.

Once you’ve created the flowers, glue them on the back to a wooden skewer. That will be your flower stem.

Paper Flower Pot Assembly

To assemble each pot, I put a foam ball in the pot and then pushed the skewer down into the foam.

Then I put a generous amount of hot glue on top of the foam ball and pressed the crinkle paper onto it. That’s it!

Flower Pot Wreath Assembly

To make it into a wreath, I had a scrap piece of wood cut to fit inside the embroidery hoop like a shelf. I used wood glue to hold it in place and also tacked in a trim nail in each side.

I attached each pot on top of the board with hot glue, gluing the bottom of the pot to the shelf. The bottom of the pots are slightly wider than my board, so I made sure to push them forward so that anything that was hanging off would hang off in the front.

I tied a ribbon on the top for it to hang.

You could also add a banner or pom poms or other decor – I decided to stick with simple for this one. Muddy boots and cute flowers – must mean it’s springtime!

NOTE: Since the pots tapper out as they go up, they are what touches the door when it’s hanging. You’ll want to hot glue some felt on the back of the pots where they touch your door. You’ll also want to be sure not to slam the door – you don’t want the pots to bounce into your door hard and break.

Spring Wreath Ideas

I’m hooked on Spring Wreaths! I love all of these that I’ve made:

Floral Tulip Wreath for Spring

Pinwheel Wreath for Spring and Summer

Simple Floral Hoop Wreath

I’m excited to teach at the ModBee Quilt Conference all about Heat Transfer Vinyl! I know it’s a new idea for some quilters, but I really love it and think there’s awesome potential in how to use Heat Transfer Vinyl in quilting. Plus, you can make your own quilting and sewing tshirts!

Here are a couple of images so you can pin this idea to save it for later. This post may contain affiliate links.

Vinyl Cutting Machines

You might want to grab a Vinyl Cutting Machine – there are two machines to choose from:

Silhouette Cameo – this is the one I love! If you think that you will want to tweak designs or design your own things, this is the machine that I recommend. They are having a DEAL right now!!! Use code SUGARBEE when you check out to get the deal of a machine for only $199 PLUS IT COMES WITH A FREE MINT MACHINE (that’s what you use to make custom stamps!)

Cricut Explore – this is also a great machine. If you think that you are only going to use premade designs, this is the machine that I recommend. You can find a deal for it for $200 on Amazon HERE.

And YES, you can cut vinyl with scissors! You will want a machine if you’re doing words or intricate designs, but if it’s something simple you can definitely hand-cut, here are a couple of examples of that:

Handcut Heart Tee

Handcut Handprint Pillow

Heat Transfer Vinyl

If you’ve never worked with Heat Transfer Vinyl, be sure to check out my info on How to Use Heat Transfer Vinyl.

I get all of my Heat Transfer Vinyl from Expressions Vinyl – it’s my favorite and their shipping is SO fast!

Sew Happy Sewing Banner Idea

I just pulled this banner together using scraps of fabric – I sewed scraps together to form long strips:

Then I laid out the strips to see the shape of the banner that I wanted.

I sewed the edge strips on, then cut the angle in the bottom as shown below:

Then I sewed the bottom strips on. After it was pieced together, with right sides together I sewed the front and back piece all the way around, inserting loops at the top and leaving an opening for turning.

Then I turned it and added a little bit of quilting for extra detail:

And then after that I added the vinyl decal:

And topped it off with pom poms!!

Sew Happy SVG and Cut File

I have the FREE SVG and Silhouette Cut File for the Sew Happy Design – you can use it on a banner or even use it to make a tshirt!
