DIY aromatherapy heat/cold {rice} packs: Snuggle Bunnies (Embracing Wellness Series & Giveaway)

Who likes a little extra comfort with some warmth when cold, cooling off when hot and relaxing/calming essential oils to promote a good night’s sleep!? Don’t we all? 

embracing wellness blog hop #oilyfamilies

Only a few more weeks ’til Easter. (And we host our family’s dinner/get-together which is why you haven’t seen any major DIY projects in the works…no creating a bigger mess until post-Easter around here). But…enjoy some smaller fun projects in the meantime.

Looking for a (useful and handmade) gift idea? I like to give my nieces and nephews candy-free gifts. Since I’m so in love with essential oils, I think these cute lil’ snuggle bunny heat/cold packs are a nice gift idea. Perfectly soothing. Also a cute idea for essential oil class/party door prizes too.

Sew all sides (I sewed as close to the raw edge as I could get and capturing both pieces – front/back – of fabric). Leave the bottom open.

Turn right side out (a screwdriver comes in handy for the ears – don’t poke too hard).

Iron. Fold in bottom raw edges and iron.

Recipe: Broccoli Cheese Soup with pasta shells

Hosting a small casual party? I seem to be doing that on a weekly basis lately since my new grandson is local one day a week. Sweet baby boy is bait for visits from family & friends, especially during lunch time. I love these visits and the opportunity to spend time with those I love and sometimes, I like to have lunch ready to serve. Most everyone loves broccoli cheese soup as well as mac & cheese, right? How about a combination of the two? This only takes about 30 minutes to prepare. Perfect!

Ingredients I used:

  • 1 box Horizon® Pasta Shells & White Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 lb. bag of organic frozen broccoli (recommended: Earthbound Farms brand)
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter (recommended: Horizon® brand)
  • 1 small chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup organic all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 4 cups free range chicken broth
  • 2 cups organic half and half (Horizon® brand recommended)
  • pinch of sea salt
  • shredded (Horizon®) cheddar cheese for topping

For more information, visit Horizon®’s website.

Servings: 4-6

Time: approx. 30 minutes.

Directions:

Saute onion in 1 tablespoon of melted butter in large pot. Add two cups of chicken broth and simmer.

Add 2 cups of chicken broth and half of frozen broccoli to food processor and puree.

Add chicken broth/broccoli to onions/large pot and stir over medium heat for 3-4 minutes.

In bowl, mix cheese packet from Horizon® Pasta Shells & White Cheddar Cheese, 1/4 cup of flour, 1/4 cup of melted butter and 2 cups of half and half.

Slowly add the half and half mixture to pot and whisk to mix over medium high heat 2 minutes.

Add Horizon® Pasta Shells & White Cheddar Cheese and remaining broccoli. Add a pinch or two of sea salt. Boil 10-12 minutes or until macaroni is done.

Remove from heat, top with shredded cheddar cheese and serve.

It’s so good! Day 2/leftovers may require the addition of more chicken broth/etc. because those shells soak it all in.

Since we’re considering more organic choices, I was pleased to learn about all of the Horizon® products. Looking for more recipes? Try the MAC-N-ATOR™, an online tool that takes existing ingredients in your kitchen that you enter and creates a recipe including Horizon® Mac & Cheese. Horizon® is an easy solution you can feel good about.

*This conversation is sponsored by Horizon. The opinions and text are all mine.

Enjoy Horizon Mac & Cheese as a versatile meal and keep your family happy.  Try different vegetables in the dish to promote alternative uses of Horizon products or let your imagination take over.

 

Horizon is a pioneer in the organic industry.  Every choice they make is carefully considered with National Organic Program (NOP) guidelines in mind.  Horizon Mac & Cheese is made with these guidelines and the happy family in mind.  For more information, visit Horizon’s website for more information.

Springtime in Paris vignette {Enter to win a trip to Paris!}

#springtimeinparis #michaelsmakers @diyshowoff

I sure wish it was springtime in western PA but until that day arrives (hopefully sometime in the very near future), I’m enjoying the Michael’s Makers March challenge: “Springtime in Paris”. I paired pretty French script pillows with a pretty DIY springtime arrangement in a decoupaged French script vase with matching frame to bring a little “Springtime in Paris” to our home.

Supplies:

How to:

Working in sections. Brush on a coat of decoupage.

decoupage vase @diyshowoff #SpringTimeinParis #michaelsmakers

Due to the shape of my tin vase, I applied strips of tissue paper in layers.

decoupage vase @diyshowoff #SpringTimeinParis #michaelsmakers

 

Apply one strip to the wet decoupage, smoothing out the wrinkles (carefully to avoid tearing the tissue paper) then move on to the next section and repeat.   decoupage vase @diyshowoff #SpringTimeinParis #michaelsmakers decoupage vase @diyshowoff #SpringTimeinParis #michaelsmakers

Once the entire vase is covered, brush on another coat of decoupage. You can repeat and add more decoupage layers if you want. The more layers, the better protection.

Let dry. The metallic sheen shines through. Love that happy surprise!

Exciting: Our open pantry was featured on the Country Living magazine website! That was a pleasant surprise and dream-come-true moment!

DIY Denim Tic Tac Toe Game

Michael’s has a new collection of craft products called Make Market and this month’s challenge includes the denim trend, a collection of fun denim supplies.

denim trend challenge #michaelsmakers denim tic tac toe display at Michaels

I made up a cute denim tic tac toe game with carrying case. It fits easily on a book shelf and makes for a great gift. 

DIY denim tic tac toe game and carrying case @diyshowoff #michaelsmakers

What I used: 

  • 12 x 12 stretched denim canvas
  • 12 x 12 denim panel
  • denim ribbon
  • fabric glue
  • adhesive velcro
  • 5-6 wood button cutouts
  • 5-6 wood heart cutouts
  • acrylic craft paint
  • two denim pockets

Coupons: 40% Off Any One Regular Price Item & 25% Off Entire Purchase including Sale Items

What I did:

1. I painted the wood pieces and set them aside to dry. 

DIY denim tic tac toe game and carrying case @diyshowoff #michaelsmakers

2. Next I applied the denim ribbon to the denim panel with fabric glue to create a tic tac toe board. 

DIY denim tic tac toe game and carrying case @diyshowoff #michaelsmakers

3. Then I used the adhesive velcro on the back of a stretched denim canvas and the denim panel to create a ‘case’ for game pieces. 

DIY denim tic tac toe game and carrying case @diyshowoff #michaelsmakers DIY denim tic tac toe game and carrying case @diyshowoff #michaelsmakers

4. Two denim pockets also hold each player’s game pieces. I’m thinking an inexpensive drawer handle for carrying on one side would work perfectly too.

Wasn’t that easy? Store game pieces inside the denim ‘box’.

Happy Valentine’s Day baby photo and club feet update

Happy Valentine’s Day! One thing this new grandma can’t get enough of is this cute little love bug and a chance to whip out the camera for some photography practice. I’m not a professional photographer but I do enjoy pretending to be one. As a home/DIY blogger, I’m used to taking photos of before/after spaces and tutorial steps. A moving model is a lot more challenging but a lot of fun! I call this one “Cupid’s Aaro” and of course he’s covered in grandma kisses.  Valentine's Day baby photo 2015 @diyshowoff #clubfeet

DIY cast covers: The casts had gotten a little worn and dirty looking. He does have some cute leg warmers but for this photo, I just snipped off the toes of festive dollar store socks (adult sized) and tucked in the raw edge. Perfect fit.

Update: He is now two months old and doing well! He loves to ‘talk’ and is always smiling. Thanks for the prayers! The plaster casts from his surgery were finally removed after three weeks earlier this week. He wasn’t phased one bit by the extra heavy weight from top of thighs to little tiny toes but he was temporarily horribly traumatized by the saw.  Measurements were taken and he’s now wearing temporary shoes and bar until his custom ones arrive. He’ll wear them for 23 hours a day. 

club feet shoes & braces @diyshowoff

His feet are a little peel-y from being in casts for months so my daughter is applying a V6/lavender essential oil blend with success. And he’s able to finally bend his knees for the first time since he was born, lots of kicking and fascination with feet during that one hour a day without shoes. 

Happy Valentine's Day 2015 from @diyshowoff

And…I just want you to know that you are loved. Your comments, your support, your encouragement, your kindness, every time we interact, I’m smiling. I hope your Valentine’s Day is filled with lots of love, kisses and good health. 

Striped DIY “Love You More” Sign

I like to incorporate a little Valentine’s vibe into my decor this time of year but I prefer to have decorative accents that can withstand longer time frame. Creating a “love” themed vignette works year round and this striped scrap wood sign is the perfect focal point. 

striped Valentine LOVE sign @diyshowoff.com  

Materials I used:

  • scrap wood for canvas
  • paint
  • FrogTape® Multi-Surface
  • vinyl decals

What I did:

Sand edges and clean scrap wood canvas. 

striped Valentine LOVE sign @diyshowoff.com

Paint base color and let dry. I did two coats. 

striped Valentine LOVE sign @diyshowoff.com

Use FrogTape to create stripes. I started with a center stripe and worked my way out. Just eyeball it. Use a small piece of FrogTape for spacing. 

striped Valentine LOVE sign @diyshowoff.com

Burnish the edges of the FrogTape using a thumbnail or credit card. 

striped Valentine LOVE sign @diyshowoff.com

Paint stripes. I did two coats. 

striped Valentine LOVE sign @diyshowoff.com

While second coat of paint is still wet, remove FrogTape. Let paint dry. 

striped Valentine LOVE sign @diyshowoff.com

I added DIY vinyl decals. Other options include a print/rub technique (print out wording, rub pencil on the back of the paper then place paper on wood sign and trace lettering) and paint or marker or stickers…get creative!

striped Valentine LOVE sign @diyshowoff.com

Now I have a “love” themed vignette perfect for Valentine’s day and a wood canvas sign that I can display all year round (cute for the nursery too)!

Essential Oil Lotion Hearts {Embracing Wellness Series & Giveaway}

It’s the second month of the Embracing Wellness Series and giveaway – several blog friends sharing their favorite Young Living essential oils and hosting an awesome giveaway as our way of wanting to help spread the oily love. Woo hoo! More details below. 

embracing wellness blog hop #oilyfamilies

*This post contains some affiliate links of what I purchased on Amazon, enough supplies for several different DIY/handmade recipes.

These essential oil lotion hearts are not only a great gift idea, they’re super handy for dry skin. Winter and extra-handwashing have made my hands super dry. I love having these on display/ready to grab near the soap on our bathroom sinks and in my purse for a quick grab. Not to mention a cute gift, great {essential oil} business incentive or prize at essential oil classes/events. 

DIY essential oils lotion bars @diyshowoff

Ingredients I used:

DIY essential oils lotion bars @diyshowoff

*I chose Valor for the one I keep in my purse. I like the benefits for easing occasional feelings of anxiety on top of soothing dry skin on the go. I also like Joy, Peace & Calming, Lavender and Sacred Mountain. One of the bonuses to DIY! YOU choose the essential oil you prefer. 

Valor: Valor® is an empowering combination of therapeutic-grade essential oils that works with both the physical and spiritual aspects of the body to increase feelings of strength, courage, and self-esteem in the face of adversity. Renowned for its strengthening qualities, Valor enhances an individual’s internal resources. It has also been found to help energy alignment in the body.

Young Living Essential Oils @diyshowoff Member #1836762 #youngliving #essentialoils

What I did: 

I simply added the shea butter, beeswax and coconut oil into a double boiler (I bought this double boiler) and melted it together over medium-high heat.

DIY essential oils lotion bars @diyshowoff

Once completely melted and blended, remove from heat and mix in essential oil. You’ll need to move through the next step rather quickly (but you can always reheat to liquify if needed). 

I poured my mixture into a glass measuring cup to make pouring the mixture into silicone heart molds easier. 

DIY essential oils lotion bars @diyshowoff

I let them cool. It doesn’t take long. I waited a few hours just to be sure they were completely cool and formed. 

DIY essential oils lotion bars @diyshowoff

Then I removed the hearts from the silicone mold. They pop out easily! Wrap for gifts or display in small labeled dish on the bathroom sink.

Being able to create your own vinyl decals makes last minute quick gifts easy. You’ll need:

Valentine's Day mason jars Happy Crafters

Of course you can create your own designs by just cutting things out with scissors but investing in a vinyl cutter has proven to be well worth the it. I simply created some Valentine designs and circles for mason jar lids using the Silhouette Design Studio software…

Load vinyl into the machine pattern/shiny side up.

Easiest {no sew} Small Dog Snood {infinity scarf} Tutorial!

Have a small dog? This is the easiest {no sew} small dog snood {or infinity scarf} tutorial! 

DIY (no sew) small dog snood infinity scarf in less than 1 minute! @diyshowoff

Our Italian Greyhound, Rosie, has very little body fat and very short fur. Needless to say, she’s not a happy to be walking in a winter wonderland type girl (she’s so much like me). Even if it’s summer time, she’s burrowed under her blankets on the couch in the a/c. So you can imagine winter time = sweaters, pajamas, coats.

DIY small dog snood/infinity scarf tutorial (no sew) @diyshowoff

While I was doing some online shopping, I came across something called a “snood”.

Snood: (/snuːd/, rhymes with ‘food‘, not ‘wood‘) is historically a type of European female headgear, or in modern times a tubular neck scarf. In the most common form, the headgear resembles a close-fitting hood worn over the back of the head.

I’ve seen dog snoods for sale but my DIY-eye saw the opportunity for a super easy tutorial where I could choose the patterns and colors for a lot less than $12+ each and not have to wait for (or pay for) delivery.

Ready to make one? 

Small Dog Snood Tutorial

1. Shop your closet or thrift shop for a stretchy long-sleeved knit shirt or thermal shirt (this type works best as it won’t unravel or need hemmed).

2. Make sure the cuff area stretches enough to go over your dog’s head comfortably. It should be loose fitting but not so loose it’s hanging. Loose but snug. Got that? Italian Greyhounds have VERY small heads so this is perfect for Rosie. 

3. Then simply cut the sleeve off near the armpit area/where the shirt meets the shoulder. Cut your snood shorter if desired. 3/4 length sleeves work too! 

DIY small dog snood/infinity scarf tutorial (no sew) @diyshowoff

Ta-da! The easiest DIY no-sew dog snood ever! 

DIY small dog snood/infinity scarf tutorial (no sew) @diyshowoff

If using a sweater, you may have to hem the larger cut side of the sleeve to prevent un-raveling. 

I paid 1.50 for size large shirts from the thrift shop. That’s $3.00 for 4 snoods! Or FREE if you end up cutting up shirts from your own closet. Well, maybe minus the money you’ll need to replace your wardrobe if you go crazy. 

DIY small dog snood/infinity scarf tutorial (no sew) @diyshowoff

I snoodle her by putting her head through the larger part of the snood first (the side I cut), letting it naturally bunch around her neck/collar area. If it’s too bulky, remove and cut the sleeve shorter. The smaller cuff area rests closest to her ears and top of her head, the larger part of the sleeve sits at her shoulders. 

DIY small dog snood/infinity scarf tutorial (no sew) @diyshowoff

Rosie mostly wears them as infinity scarves over her collar but when it’s cold, I pull it up over her ears for her outdoor potty breaks. Awe, baby! Or is that granny? Too cute either way! 

DIY small dog snood/infinity scarf tutorial (no sew) @diyshowoff

And for those concerned about safety, Rosie only wears her snood under adult supervision.

DIY small dog snood/infinity scarf tutorial (no sew) @diyshowoff

Please supervise your snood-wearing pooch.

DIY small dog snood/infinity scarf tutorial (no sew) @diyshowoff

Note: Rosie is a 10 lb. senior dog with a tiny skull. If your dog is larger, try sewing a larger version using a stretchy fabric and by looking at the shape of a shirtsleeve and the size of your dog. You don’t have to be a professional seamstress, just a few simple stitches. Results may vary. :) 

Update: And just like that, that quick, one DIYShowOff reader has already raided her closet and a few minutes later, her sweet chihauhaus are cozy and warm! This is Phoebe & Sable. They love to snuggle. Aren’t they cute?! Thanks for sharing, Mary-Louise! xo

Personalized Baby Gift Set

I love being creative when it comes to baby gifts and personalizing a baby layette set with iron-on vinyl decals is just so easy to do!

DIY personalized baby layette gift set @diyshowoff

Supplies:

What I did:

Using my Silhouette studio designer edition software, I created a few fun decals. 

DIY personalized baby layette gift set @diyshowoff

For iron-ons, text (and some images) will need to be mirrored/flipped horizontally. Simply right click and choose “flip horizontally”. 

DIY personalized baby layette gift set @diyshowoff

Load the vinyl into the machine shiny side down (the shiny side is the transparency side). 

DIY personalized baby layette gift set @diyshowoff

Adjust settings for cutting heat transfer material and send to cut. Unload vinyl from the machine. (Note: I do not use a cutting mat as shown below.)

DIY personalized baby layette gift set @diyshowoff

Cut off the excess vinyl/material and weed (remove) the unwanted part of the the vinyl leaving just the decals. 

DIY personalized baby layette gift set @diyshowoff DIY personalized baby layette gift set @diyshowoff

Set iron according to heat instructions provided with vinyl iron on. 

Place iron on decal, shiny side facing you (iron on isn’t sticky but the clear transparency is…sticker side down to help hold iron on in place). 

DIY personalized baby layette gift set @diyshowoff

Cover with a cotton diaper cloth, burp cloth or towel and heat iron on according to instructions.

Carefully peel away transparency (if iron on pulls up too, re-place and iron some more).

DIY Color Block Painted Door Makeover

Remember when I finished the combined nursery / guest room  makeover a few months ago…

combined nursery/guest room @diyshowoff  

I had a few finishing touches left to share. One of them was taking this plain door that leads to the guest bathroom…

chevron color block door tutorial @diyshowoff

and giving it a fun look. Paint is such an easy way to make a fun and bold statement, add a pop of color and definitely a touch of “wow” to the room…

chevron color block door tutorial @diyshowoff

What I used:

  • plain white door
  • sample of Valspar paint (color: rushing stream, finish: satin)
  • paintbrush
  • FrogTape
  • yard stick and pencil

What I did:

1. I gave the door a good scrub. Amazing how unnoticeable the dust is on those recessed panels. Who knew?

2. Using my yard stick, I found the center point of the door horizontally. Then made marks for where I’d like each “chevron” point to be. I didn’t really space them out exact. From the top, the first section is 14 inches down. 

3. Using FrogTape, I created a “v” shape. I eye-balled the angle. 

4. I repeated the “v” shape. A lot of my spacing and angle had to do with the panels, not exact measurements. 

chevron color block door tutorial @diyshowoff

5. I used my thumbnail (a credit/gift card would also work) to burnish the edges of the tape. 

chevron color block door tutorial @diyshowoff

6. I painted one coat and let it dry. Then brushed on a second coat. 

chevron color block door tutorial @diyshowoff chevron color block door tutorial @diyshowoff

7. While the paint was still wet, I removed the FrogTape. Try pulling away from the paint, as shown:

chevron color block door tutorial @diyshowoff

 

Before:

After: I am in love with the large scale bold design. It’s so unexpected and fun. 

chevron color block door tutorial @diyshowoff

 

and just that small project makes a big statement, doesn’t it? 

 

chevron color block door tutorial @diyshowoff

 

I love how it kicks the guest room/nursery room decor up a notch.
