Our new house has a stone fire pit right off the patio and we plan to spend a LOT of time out there! I added some easy DIY details to make a colorful s’mores set up for an outdoor s’mores bar! Cheerful paper pennant and custom labeled s’mores containers are the hit of the backyard!
Our front entrance was pretty bare and not very interesting. We had two large planters from the front porch of the old house. They’re pretty nice planters (albeit a little top heavy) so I don’t want to rush in and paint them so I tucked them behind the columns. With a large plant in there I think they’ll anchor the space nicely.
I LOVE this makeover. Not as much as I love Dawson Leery, but it was super easy and makes SUCH a difference so yeah… I love it a lot. I picked up a handful of statues from thrift stores and Facebook marketplace… anywhere I could find them for under $10. Here’s my secret weapon: Plutonium Spray Paint.
My kids have a few favorite toys: markers and crayons, rubber ducks and… our bin FILLED with little miniature plastic animals and figures. These Safari Toobs are favorites for any event and over the years we’ve acquired a LOT of mini alligators and cows and fairies and astronauts. So many themes. So many tiny plastic creatures to play with. So why not CRAFT with them?!
