SOOO, thanks to some super cute things I saw on Pintrest, I decided to paint them with chalkboard paint. That way they could be labeled and colored on and embrace the atmosphere of the PLAYroom. I love them! I had 8 which filled up half the shelf at one point. But 2 fell to the whims of rough play and children climbing inside them. But I still have 6. Trust me, if you saw the way those 2 little boys use them, you'd be impressed with their durability.
I also did some VERY early Christmas decorations. Experiments, really. I made snow globes to see how easy of a projects that would be for the boys to do. Results? SUPER easy and soooo cute. Added bonus? InSANEly inexpensive.
Canning jars (1 quart) 12 for $6. Tree was $1 at Dollar Tree. And the bells and fluffies in the one on the left were things I already had in. Forgive my yucky iphone pictures. (*TOTALLY random sidenote, I ordered my new iphone so in a few short weeks, maybe my crappy iphone pics won't be so crappy)
I still need to hot glue a cute Christmasy ribbon around the bottom, but loving how cheap, easy and awesome this crafty goodness is.
