We are slightly obsessed with suncatchers in this house. I’ve shared our cute pumpkin suncatchers before but we’ve actually made loads more that *gasp* didn’t make it online just because I thought it might be overkill! I couldn’t help but share these sweet autumn leaf suncatchers though, both my kids loved making them and it was a great way to sit down and chat about the changing seasons with them.
Every now and again, you want to take the time to update the look and style of your home. Just doing a few simple things to your living room can really make all the difference. And redecorations doesn’t have to be a major task that is going to take hours and hours of work. Sometimes, it is the little things that matter. With this idea in mind, let’s take a closer look at some top decorating tips that can get you living in style.
As you can imagine as a family we create quite a lot of art here. Not all of it ends up on the blog but there’s normally quite a lot of drawing, colouring and sticking going on too – most mornings my three year old seems to want to get the glue out within five minutes of waking up (a bit concerning as that’s normally when I work!) In our old home I washi taped the kids pictures to the wall but after moving to our new house and spending months renovating it I wanted to use something to display the kids art that was a bit….nicer.

We’ve been sharing a lot of paper bag crafts for kids recently and today is the turn of this super cute puppy puppet! For some reason there doesn’t seem to be that many puppy or dog crafts out there which is a shame as they always seem so popular with kids. This paper bag puppy is super easy to make and can be used as a puppet too – perfect for extending your activity and keeping the kids occupied for a bit longer!
