Brassy Apple (Love her btw) posted a link on her Facebook the other day about snowflakes that are made from a glue gun.
I felt inspired to try them out myself since I already own a bunch of glue sticks and glue gun. I also let my daughter join in on the fun.
The tutorial I read has you actually putting your hot glue right onto your window. I was a little leery of this since hot glue can break a cold window, so I decided I needed to find a different way of making them. Here's how I did it:
Here is what you'll need:
1. A piece of clear glass (I used one from on old frame that I wasn't using)
2. Glue gun (preferably low temp, however mine is high temp)
3. Lots of glue sticks
4. Non Stick Cooking Spray (Like PAM)
5. Paper towel
6. Snowflake template: Click HERE
Print out a snowflake template and place it under your piece of glass.
Very lightly spray the glass with some non stick cooking spray (This will make peeling the snowflake off of the glass a breeze, and also creates suction when you place the snowflake on your window).
3. Trace your snowflake with hot glue. Make sure to make it pretty thick.
(An optional step could be adding glitter while the glue is still hot or even using glitter glue sticks)
4. This is where your little one can help. Gently peel off the glue snowflake.
5. Place your snowflake on a paper towel and rub the excess oil off. (Do this by sliding the snowflake from side to side on the paper towel.
6. Have your child place the snowflake on a window and gently press to stick.
There you have it! Make as many snowflakes as you want, or even print out different snowflake patterns to mix it up a bit. You can also talk to your children about snowflakes and how each one is different. Talk about how they're made. Make it a fun, learning experience! :)
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and please feel free to share or pin on Pinterest! :)
Recently I was contacted by TreSkinRX consultant Leen's Team to try their two week trial kit for normal/dry skin. I was excited to try it out since TreSkinRX's ingredients are 100% Organic, Pharmaceutical-Grade Aloe Vera Based.
Why is this important? Well for one thing, most skin care companies preach how important water is in their products. How well it hydrates your skin. The simple fact is that our skin is almost water-proof. We have hundreds of layers of dead skin that actually help to water-proof us and provide a barrier against infection.
If water is their main vehicle to deliver all other key ingredients, then those ingredients simply don't get fully absorbed. TreSkinRX is aloe-based. Aloe is readily absorbed into the skin and has been proven to heal damaged skin. Aloe is also an excellent anti-inflammatory, which can help a wide array of skin conditions.
So, here's the scoop. I tried the products and I LOVE them all! I especially love their daily exfoliant EX3.
This stuff is no joke! When you first start using it, you'll want to mix it into your moisturizer until you get used to it. You're definitely going to feel this working when you put it on and I love the Vitamin C microbeads. Your skin will feel AH-MAZING after using this! I kept feeling my face because it felt like a baby's skin! Love, love, love it!
The purifying cleanser is also a great cleanser and I highly recommend it. I also loved the Triple Defense Day Moisturizer (with SPF 15) and the Night Repair Moisturizer.
Thanks to TreSkinRX thru Leen's Team I'm giving away a two week trial that includes the cleanser, day and night moisturizer and also the EX3! Good Luck!
Blogger friend and jewelry boutique owner Erika Batista sent me this absolutely gorgeous emerald bubble necklace from her shop Lola Blue The Closet. I love the look of a bubble necklace and own two others in turquoise and cream. It's a great statement piece that will work with so many outfits in your wardrobe.
Erika was nice enough to offer this bubble necklace (matching earrings included) to one lucky winner in her choice of oxblood or pastel yellow.
Aren't they lovely?!?! I get so many compliments and people asking me where I got my necklaces when I wear them. Make sure you check out Lola Blue The Closet to see all the other beautiful pieces she has. I especially am dying to get my hands on all the pieces from her Rose Gold Collection. I'm slightly obsessed with rose gold currently :)
Good Luck Ladies!
I'm so excited to partner with LUXE by Lisa Vogel for this fabulous designer swimwear giveaway! Yes, I know it's only December, but this is such a hot swimsuit, I know it'll be gone before spring!
I absolutely love this swimsuit! I'm not really a bikini woman anymore, so I love the coverage this suit gives. It's modest, yet it's still sexy.
The LUXE by Lisa Vogel Opening Night Signature Peekaboo Tankini Top & Tab Side Bikini Bottom (the Tab Sides give you the perfect fit by the way) is one of LUXE's best selling swimsuits. Featuring strategically draping detail to cover those trouble spots, built-in peekaboo bandeau, beautiful jeweled brooch at the necktie and a banded waist.
This is one flattering swimsuit, and one lucky winner will hit the pool/beach in style this summer wearing this LUXE by Lisa Vogel swimsuit!
