DIY Art Caddy.


I originally thought when making the boy’s their art caddy for their bedroom, that I would use a combination of pails and a wooden cutlery caddy. But before I even got there, I found a utensil caddy at Target for $11.99 {which was my back-up plan anyway}, and I knew it was by far the best solution and would be moved to my main plan!

Target had a plethora of utensil caddy’s in their summer seasonal section, and the caddy’s were a GREAT size to be used as a caddy for far more than just utensils!
have to use up all that extra chalk board paint some how! One little project at a time! This one really couldn’t be more perfect for chalk board paint though, I mean it’s a kid’s art caddy after all!!
Talk about an easy peasy project! Painting was fun, but more fun ensued when it was time to fill it up with all the kiddos randomly placed art supplies!
The divided portions of the caddy are great for keeping markers, crayons and color pencils in their respective sections!I snagged some small canning jars for the other odd shaped crafting items:
And tucked those inside the other side of the caddy:
Along with scissors, paint, glue and wiggly eyes! You can’t have an art caddy without wiggly eyes!!
The end result is something that I can tuck up on a shelf in the boys room, and they can easily snag it and carry it to the kitchen table or floor to work on their creative crafty projects! Score, 1 point MOM!
OK, time to spill a secret. I picked up two more of those utensil caddy’s for two more organizing projects that I can’t wait to share! Any guesses as to what they might be?

What other ways have you been whipping up fantastic art storage for your little artists?ArtCaddy1ArtCaddy14ArtCaddy15

DIY Chocolate Sundae Gift Idea.



What’s not to like about toasted marshmallows and melted chocolate? Just package chocolate,graham crackers,and lots of marshmallows for smores snacking. You can use clear plastic type box,or a gift basket,a jar would work to.I’m sure most people would love this gift I know I would!
This icecream sundae box is from homemadetipjunkie.com I thought this was such a cool idea.Just attach a tag that says just add icecream,very cute! Use some waffle cones,cone bowls,and a variety of sprinkles in small baby food jars,or baggies just add some nice ribbons tied on the bags or jars in a nice gift box.Add a jar of homemade chocolate syrup .You will find the recipe on this blog under diy hot fudge sauce and whip cream.
Very thoughtful unique gift idea and affordable.
