Being newly married and a stay at home mom, is a new adventure each and every day but I wouldn't have it any other way! We are living the everyday life of Gods plan! Hope you enjoy following us!

Craft time!

Monday is my day to clean, do laundry and just get things ready for the week but today I wanted to add in something fun!

I told Brent I was going to make a lamp shade out of coffee filters ... he looked at me like I was crazy! 
But I saw on a blog someone who did it, and it turned out sooo cute!

Craft: Lamp shade out of coffee filters

lamp shade

Re- painting this for Addison's room!


How to:
1-Fold the Coffee Filter in half
2- Fold the coffee filter in thirds
3- Fold the coffee filter in half from bottom to top
4 -The bottom half is what is glued down to the shade so the "flower" stands up

After over 200 coffee filters later it was done.. and I LOVE IT!
It turned out really cute! I think im gonna make one for our room!
If you have any questions on how to make one let me know!
