How gorgeous is this gift wrap party on 100 Layer Cake? And what a great idea to make gift wrapping fun- plan a party and drinks with it!

Upcycle some newspaper and make these gorgeous paper mache gold leaf bowls!

Sangria with apple, pomegranate and figs? Yes, please.

DIY Crayon Place Cards!



When I host Thanksgiving, I make an easy setting for the kid's table-  I throw a bunch of crayons and markers in a vase and tell the kids to go crazy on the kraft paper "tablecloth"- they love it!

This year, I have a new spin and it is each kid's name in crayon!  After making bunny crayons for Kalia's easter basket last year, I wanted to make crayons in every shape and size.  They are cute and colorful and Kalia loves them!

How to Make Crayon Name Place Cards!

Materials:
Silicone Alphabet Mold 
Crayons

*Click the link for the mold I purchased.  However, the letters are not backwards.  Meaning when you pop them out, the smooth side is on the wrong side.  For many letters it does not matter, but for some letters it does (like "L"), so they will not all look smooth.  However, this was the largest alphabet mold I could find, so I just went with it!

Directions:
1) Unwrap the crayons- it is easiest to stick them in a bowl of water and let them soak for awhile.  The wrappers come off much easier!

2) Break crayons into pieces and fill mold.



3) Bake at 250 degrees for 12-15 minutes.  Remove from oven and let crayons cool before popping out.



Tell your kids to unleash their mini artists and draw like crazy on the tablecloth.    I also included a large bowl of letter crayons in the middle so they can use as many colors as they want.  Colette is a bit young for the crayons (10 months old) but Kalia insisted she have a name set (and also our two dogs- Zoey & Taj ;)




The R and G above you can see how the side is not smooth.





While I love the crayons to use at Thanksgiving,  the crayon place cards would be perfect for any party- and a great favor for the kiddos to go home with!  Anyone would love to go home with their own name in crayons!

Come back Thursday for the adult table place cards!

The Kate Spade X GapKids collab is mostly sold out, but I just cannot get over these shoes... Can I have them in my size?

I am in a messy updo daily (because babies) and I wish it could look this good.

Ahh, this diy flecked gold tray from Vitamini Handmade is so gorgeous!!

I rarely drink beer, but I feel like this reindeer bottle opener from Anthropologie is necessary in my life.

I am itching to decorate for Christmas... Merry Everything!!
