DIY- Framed Pegboard

I made these little babies over a month ago but forgot to post about it!
My Dad and I were getting supplies from the hardware store and I came upon a pile of scraps from the cutting area. One of which being a great sized piece of Peg Board. They gave it to us for $1.00!!

So when we had some time we cut it to fit my space, and I had some extra pieces left over.

You will need:
Any amount of Inespensive Frames
Peg Board cut to fit
Peg Board Hanging Accessories

We cut the pegboard down to fit inside some inexpensive 8 1/2 x 11 frames.
Take out the glass from the frames, replace with the pegboard.
Insert your Pegboard accessories, then replace the back of your frame.

Easy As Pie!!

Some of the pictures below are some fun ways to use your DIY Frames. I personally have them displaying my keys. However I think they would be fun to display in your Craft Room, Kids Rooms, Kitchen's or Entry Ways.

The possibilities are endless!

Happy Crafting!

The Suitcase

When my friends little one was born, I has this fun idea to put him in this adorable little vintage suitcase I found. Selina, was just as cool with it, and we took a few shots when he turned 6 weeks old.

Fast forward to autumn this year and we brought the suitcase with us to a much needed catch up visit!
Mason is now a Year and Two Months old.
He is far to big for the suitcase but he made go for it just for us!
He's such a little ham.

DIY - Glow In The Dark Mason Jars

I was asked last night via Instagram (@onelatenight) if I
could do a quick DIY for these Glowing Mason Jars.
Honestly, they are as easy as can be!
Last night I made a snap decision to give out candy, as I originally wasn't going to be home. That left me with very little time to decorate the front step. I didn't have time to carve a pumpkin and needed something to define the steps for the kids, that was also festive.

Mason Jars
Glow Stick Bracelets
Plastic Groccery Bag
Paper Towel

I had a bunch of those $1.50 tubes of Glow stick bracelets from Michaels, and 4 Mason Jars in various sizes. I placed all of my Mason Jars in the sink, and seperated my glow bracelets by color.
**The Blue and Green glow the brightest so make sure to place at least one of each color in each jar.
Crack all of the bracelets to release the color glow. Slowly and carefully over the sink cut off a tiny end piece and place it cut side down into the jar. I cut each glowstick over the sink into a plastic groccery bag to allow for easy cleanup. If there is any spray have a paper towel handy..
Do this for all colors and spread them out evenly between the amount of jars you have.
Once you have all bracelets cut, grab hold to the uncut ends sticking out of the jar and shake them back and forth inside making contact with the sides. You will start to see little droplets forming all over the edges. Eventually over time any excess will form along the bottom of the jar.

The Jars will glow for about 6 hours at a good brightness. Some may even glow for a little longer.
I hope you have a chace to add a few glow jars to your next event! It's a super inexpensive decoration, that will get a lot of attention.

Happy Crafting, from the girl with the Blue Hair!
I wore it for the whole 12 kids that came to get candy last night.
