Baby Sock Roses

Perfect for baby showers, sock roses, are a cheap and easy centerpiece. I would like to say these creative roses were my idea but that isn't true. There are many tutorials online that helped me with my technique. :) Here is how I made them.

Start with some baby socks...

Take the first sock and lay it on the table toe down...

Roll the toe toward the opening...

Finally fold the open part over the roll to create a rose...

Use your fingers to pull and and form the sock to make it look better.
You can take floral tape and wrap the end of the rose onto a skewer and make a bouquet.

Enjoy your sock roses.

P.S I finally got a Pinterest Button on my blog!!!! Yay I am moving forward. :) If you like it.

DIY Nail Flowers

Don't you just love having your nails done and getting an adorable flower painted on? I wanted to share with my nail flower tutorial because it is pretty much the best. :)

Start with your favorite colors...

I am a huge Essie fan! Their nail polish is the best. My favorite color is... Cute as a Button

Paint on your base coat and color coat and wait a few minutes for it to dry. But don't let it dry all the way because you are going to need it to be a little bit soft while you are doing the flower.

Okay now you can start the masterpiece. Take a tooth pic with a  ROUND FLAT TOP. This is the key of you don't have the right tooth pic it will fail. :(
You can buy them at Safeway. 

Take your white nail polish and put a little bit on a hard surface with the brush. Next dip your tooth pic into the white paint. Paint five dots on your nail (I prefer putting them toward the corner).

Now take the other end (pointy end) of the tooth pic and pull the dots to the middle.

Super cute right???

Finally add some bling. You can get little nail diamonds at Walmart.

All that is left to do is a top coat once the flower is completely dry. 

Have fun showing off you adorable nails and smiling when people ask you, "Where did you them done?" :)

Simply Shabby Hanger Makeover!

LOOK!!! Isn't it adorable?
I am so happy with the way it turned out. I found this old coat hanger in my garage and painted and bedazzled it. So shabby and cute! :)

Instead of hanging ugly coats on it I hung necklaces...

This was a perfect addition to my room! It is AMAZING what a little paint can do. Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.
