UltimateMama and her girls ventured to M&J Trimming last week in the quest to find goods to use to create our own barrettes and hair accessories!  And, were we ever successful (after about an hour of looking through all of the store’s amazing supplies).  First, we headed straight to the clearance section to find beautiful appliques of all kinds at spectacular prices ($1 to $3 each).  Next, we found bags of 4-5 hair clips (medium and large in size) in each pack. Finally, our eyes locked in on E6000 craft glue.  It only took us 30 minutes to glue on the appliques and create red carpet worthy hair barrettes that have become a big hit at school!

Easy, fun, cute, and useful!

UltimateMama wanted her family of four to collaborate on a kitchen decorating project she started post her apartment renovation a few years ago.  Due to a structural issue, an annoying pillar could not be removed from the middle of the kitchen so why not decorate it?!  Canvas art seemed like the easiest way to accomplish the goal of beautifying the space as well as make each family member a part of the project.  Here are the simple steps to create a masterpiece that everyone will love:

Buy a canvas value pack (we like the 8 x 10 size at Michaels)

Select some colorful acrylic paints

Place each canvas horizontally and paint away!

UltimateMama used small nails to hang the finished artwork, however, double sided tape works well too!
