Diy Fawn Antlers

DIY Deer Antlers

My darling Estella is a lover of all animals. She pretends to be something different on a daily basis, most popular being a cat, lamb, tiger and lately baby fawn. So when I asked her what she wanted to be this year for Halloween she first said a super hero… I was surprised. The next day she decided she wanted to be a baby fawn for Halloween and I had to be the mommy deer. Challenge Accepted. So I set out online for tutorials on how to make antlers. While there were many out there, I tried most of them and it just didn’t turn out right or required too much effort. First I tried paper mache, which was a mess and required me to use several layers and then still have to paint them afterward. I finished one antler and wasn’t thrilled with the outcome and still had 3 more to complete. Then I tried pipe cleaners. They just weren’t strong enough to hold the flowers even after being wrapped with flower tape. So I stepped away from youtube and pinterest and figured it out myself which turned out to be the easiest method and strong enough to be worn by a wild toddler.

What you will need:

Foil

Tissue Paper

Flower Tape

Hot glue gun

Wide hair band

Fake flowers

Step one. Depending on the size of antlers you want, cut a piece of foil (for Estella’s toddler antlers I used about a foot of foil.)  Now roll the foil until you have one long piece.

Next, using your fingers open the hole on one end and stick some crumbled tissue paper inside the bottom of the base. I put 2 or 3 small pieces of tissue paper.

(Make sure you do this so you have a wide enough base to glue the antlers to the headband.)

Antlers3

Now start shaping your antlers. You can find tons of pictures online for ideas. You will need to wrap a few small pieces on the large piece to make separate pieces.

Here are two additional pieces I added

Antlers5

After making the shape of the antlers its time to wrap it with brown flower tape. Simply pull the tape apart to make it sticky and wrap the large part of the antlers first then move on to wrapping the small antler sections and wrapping it around the large base a few times for better hold.

Antlers5

After completely wrapped, hot glue the antlers to the headband. Use lots of glue and wait patiently until it is completely dry.

Antlers6

Next, cut the flowers leaving a few inches of stem and glue to the headband. I also glued a few leaves to the headband to hide the band on the sides.

I love how they turned out and Estella looked just like a little fawn

Elderberry Syrup

Elderbery1

There is absolutely nothing worse than a sick toddler. N.O.T.H.I.N.G! Unfortunately since Estella is now in preschool, she is sick much more than ever before. For the last 3 days she has been terribly sick and her normal count of 100 moms a day has gone up to about 1000 a day. I haven’t slept in days, I have cabin fever and I dont think I can listen to the theme songs of My Little Pony, Miles from Tomorrow Land or Little Charmers one more time without throwing a shoe through the T.V. While medicine temporarily helps bring her fever down and get a little rest, my mom made a batch of her Elderberry Syrup to help with her sore throat and help build her immunity back up. Its super easy to make and can be taken daily to keep from getting sick.

Elderberry

Ingredients

1/2 Cup dried Elderberries (mom orders hers from mountainroseherbs.com)

3 Cups Water

1 Cup Raw Local Honey

1 Organic Cinnamon Stick

Place berries, water and cinnamon stick in sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Let Cool and then mix in the honey. Keep refrigerated for up to 2 months. Take 1 tsp a day :)

End of Year Teacher Gifts

I can’t believe Estella is finishing her first year of preschool. I was just starting to process this and now the school year is almost to an end. What? Where did the time go? I must say that Estella lucked out with her first year teachers and with so much appreciation to those special ladies,  I wanted to make them something special as a thank you for being so loving to my little one when away from home. Every spring here in Central Florida Estella and I like to go blueberry picking at a local farm close to our home. This year we made it out 3 times in their 2 month season and I believe I have enough blueberries to last until next Spring. Knowing that both of her teachers love to bake, we collected some special organic blueberries for their end of year gifts. I put them in cute little jars I found in the $3 bins at Target (gets me everytime) and put them in a burlap sack along with our favorite blueberry muffin recipe. The teachers enjoyed them so much that they didn’t have any left at the end of the day.

Savannah Wedding Flowergirl

Before I started my new job as a Stay at Home Mom, I worked for a wonderful Law Firm in the city. I absolutely loved my job mostly because I loved the people working there. We were simply a family, although rather dysfunctional a lot of the time. The hardest part was having my boss in a long term relationship with one of my co-workers. I remember the first day I started the paralegal took me into her office and told me that she was dating the attorney (my boss) and remember thinking about running for the door. However, Im glad that I stuck it out because I gained two amazing friends and when they FINALLY decided to make it official (10 years after dating) I was thrilled that they asked Estella to be their flower girl. Being so young, I was very worried about Estella’s performance in this perfect Savannah wedding. We practiced alot, watched tons of you tube videos and she was a pro flower girl on the big day!

Valentines Day Diy Cards

I absolutely love Valentines Day much more now having a toddler. I think its the little red and pink sprinkles you can add to your sugar cookies and the cute little cards they get for one another. So this year instead of buying a box of cards for her to give to her little friends, we decided to make something special instead. And lets be real for a second.. I don’t think Ill ever buy cards from the store until she is in a class of 25.

Big Girl Room

Saying goodbye to Estella’s nursery in our old house was really hard when we left the city. Actually, leaving the house that we brought Estella home from the hospital to, the house she learned to crawl in and the house where we celebrated many firsts was difficult. I decided when we moved into our new home Stella needed a new big girl room. The room was already painted a soft cream color so I painted some white scallops at the top of the walls and we purchased a big girl bed. Hopefully someday soon this room will become a new nursery and Estella will move into an updated big girl room. Until then, she is really enjoying her space.

We also have plenty of space in the new house for Estella to have a playroom downstairs. It is so nice having all of her toys in one space!

Estella is One!

How do I have a one year old? How did the first year fly-by so fast? We have a little person with her own personality in our house. I can’t believe she is one. She loved her unicorn and fairy party.

Welcome Spring!

q8

Spring has arrived and I’m starting to get my to-do and honey-do list together. Last Saturday we dropped Estella off at grandma and papa’s house for the day and tackled the yard. We spent a good amount of time at the local nursery picking out the semi-sun/shade plants for the front of the house since we have a large oak tree that shades most of that area. The back yard is full sun so that was pretty easy to pick out flowers. After walking the whole nursery with an expert and asking “are you sure I cant have New Zealand Tea Rose in shade” about a million times we decided on Foxtail Ferns and large Azalea Bushes. I’ve never been a huge fan of Azalea however I didn’t really have many choices and I could see that I was losing my husbands interest fast so I said SOLD!!

Estella’s Nursery

When I found out I was pregnant with a little girl, I couldn’t wait to start on her nursery. I think we tested at LEAST 15 pink paint swatches on the wall before finding the perfect vintage pink for her room. Most pinks were too bright or too bubble gum pink. Not being a big fan of the color pink, I had originally planned on painting her nursery white or a soft gray, however, after looking at many pink inspirational photos of vintage pink walls I was sold. After many attempts, Behr Italian Villa won my heart and was exactly the right shade of pink.
