Sweet Tea Favors

Gift Ideas Sweet TeaOh the love I have for sweet tea, and because I love sweet tea so much I thought sweet tea favors in some mason jars would be a cute little favor for a Tea Party!

The wonderful Martha Stewart posted a cute DIY  favor idea for a wedding, but because I love mason jars I decided to put mine in Jars. Here is my tutorial on making your own sugar cubes. Because my heart mold is bigger I only added 4 heart sugar molds to two tea bags. Martha Stewart provided a Free printable that I fixed up and folded to go along in my mason jars.

  I added some twine and created my own Sweet Tea Printable to dress up my mason jar. You can also get your Mason Jar Lids  on Amazon. If you haven’t noticed yet, mason jar tumbler cups are everywhere and come with cute little straws. I picked one up because I liked the color and it was on clearance. Here is another free Sweet Tea chalkboard printable if you like the chalkboard look! blue sweet tea

Dollar Tree Craft Soap Dispenser

Dollar Tree Crafts

Cute and easy little DIY project you can do that only takes a few minutes to make and better yet a few dollars to make! On my last trip to Dollar Tree, I came across this porcelain soap dispenser and thought I could spruce it up!

I already had a can of chalkboard paint I used for my Chalkboard Frame DIY. I lifted the top part and took tissue and twisted it and put in the opening of the soap – so I didn’t get any paint in there. Next I sprayed two coats of chalkboard paint and let dry.  When fully dried, spray some Acrylic spray on your project so your paint seals, and your crafts last longer!

For the fun part- I tied some of my Twine thread around it, and I found a chalkboard label I bought in a pack at the Target Dollar section at Christmas time.  You can write someone’s Initials on it for a gift or little message.  I thought this would make a cute little add on gift, or Christmas stocking stuffers, or even great employee gifts for when you have a lot of gifts to handout during the holidays!  Wrap up in some clear bags with a cute printable. I found this printable on Tip Junkie We Wash You A Merry Christmas! And there you go, fun little Diy craft!

Chalkboard Frame DIY + Free Printable

Chalkboard  Frame DIYEverywhere I go right now I see chalkboard décor, chalkboard art, chalkboard everything. All of it is definitely cute but has a huge mark up price on it. If you’re feeling crafty but don’t want to get into a huge project — this Chalkboard frame tutorial is easy to make and can be a cute gift to give! Lately I have seen all kinds of  frames at AC Moore, Hobby Lobby and JoAnn’s.  Don’t forget to use a coupon!

Check Craft stores This was at AC Moore, and I was able to use a 50% coupon making my frame $2.49! I bought a can of Chalkboard spray-paint at Wal-Mart for $3.39 which will be enough for many more chalkboard crafts! In the scrapbooking section I found little fabric flowers for my frames. They have tons to choose from. They usually come in a pack so you have extra for another project! Chalkboard Before I spray-painted the back of my frame first, let it dry. Flip it over and spray paint the front. Once dried I used a hot glue gun to attach my fabric flowers.  Check out Deseret Designs blog, she has tons of cute FREE Printables. Here is the printable I used for free!  Chalkboard Frame Crafts
