Pinterest- Inspired Crafts

This summer I have found a lot of awesome crafts on pinterest (you can see what I have pinned on my pinterest page). Unfortunately, I found more time to pin stuff than to actually make it, so my to-make list is still really long. For some reason, I always think my summer days are going to be fancy-free and lackadaisical, but in reality, it is usually our busiest time of the year. Anyways, I did get around to making a couple of pinterest-inspired crafts this summer, so come and take a peak:

Cork boats! I saw fancier ones here, but decide to sort of wing my own. I used a hot glue gun, and they floated great, until Phoebe realized that she could pull the corks apart and destroy....

Finn's jet pack. This was so darn cute, I couldn't resist.

And the super cute peacock tutu that I already blogged about here

Have you been pinterest-crafting this summer? Pin It Now!


  1. I have never been on Pinterest. I feel like I would get sucked in too quickly. But that jet pack is one of the cutest projects I've seen in a long time. I love it!

  2. The cork boats look like SUCH fun...I must drink more wine so that I can make some. ; )

  3. Loving the cork boats, think my little man would enjoy that one.

  4. These crafts are great! Pinterest is lots of fun (but major time-consuming) ;-) Enjoy your week!

  5. I.could totally dothe cork boats! I drink enough wine after all....
