DIY Barbie Shoe Necklace

Four years old and already obsessed with shoes! Yes, that’s my beautiful little flower, Chrysanthemum. And she is wearing the latest addition to her jewelry box, a necklace embellished with charms made from Barbie shoes.

My mother in law bought my daughter a set of off brand clothes at the dollar store a while back. My daughter loved the clothes, but the shoes were much too large.

So I decided to make use of them. I put holes in the backs of the shoes with a push pin, then put a link through the hole, attach to a bracelet or necklace and you’re done!

DIY Play Makeup

With Thanksgiving coming fast, I’ve been working on a few fall crafts. However, I have yet to finish any of them.
So while I finish those up, enjoy this:

As any mother with daughters will tell you, little girls like to get into Mommy’s makeup! So today’s craft is my solution to that issue.

This one is pretty easy. We all have an empty -or nearly empty- eyeshadow palette somewhere. Why not recycle that into a fun toy that helps our little girl be just like Mommy?

First, clean out the palette. Be sure to remove any leftover makeup, and dry thoroughly.

Then take any color nail polish and fill the spaces where the makeup used to be. Make sure to fill them to the top of the space, as the nail polish will compress when it dries.

Let the nail polish dry overnight, or longer if necessary.
Now  your little girl has no-mess “makeup,” and will (hopefully) stay out of yours!

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!
