Bookshelf Makeover

I've always wanted to paint furniture and this is my first attempt!  My husband was very skeptical when I came home with this scratched up bookshelf that had a slight thrift store smell.  To be honest, I was doubtful too but I figured I had only spent $20 on it and even if it didn't turn out it would be good practice.  I used Americana Decor Chalk paint in Everlasting and Treasure and sealed it with Americana Decor Clear Wax. 

DIY Fireworks Headband

Did your mom ever put embarrassingly big bows on you when you were a kid?  Mine did, and I used to die when I saw the pictures and now I totally get it.  Maybe the bows I put on my kids aren't 80's style big, but putting cute things in their hair is sooo fun! I saw this cute tutorial for making felt flower headbands by Something Turquoise (see tutorial HERE) and decided I wanted to make something like that for my girls for the 4th of July.  It's really easy and takes only a few minutes to make!

You'll need:

Red, White, and Blue Felt
Glue Gun
Ribbon or Elastic

Start off with cutting out a long rectangle in each color.  Mine is 2 1/2" x 5"
