I wanted to share with you one of my mom’s latest projects: a DIY Dog Wreath. Here is a list of supplies she used:

  • Wire Wreath

April Fools Day Prank: DIY Dog Poop

Happy April Fools Day!
Boy, do I have a good DIY prank for you all to do!
Making fake dog poop!!!

Fake Poop #1
  • Supplies: Peanut Butter, Microwaveable Bowl, Spoon, Chocolate Syrup, Plate, Ziplock Bag, Scissors, (optional: seeds, raisins, corn, pudding)
  • Scoop 2-3 spoonfuls of peanut butter into a microwaveable bowl.
  • Then squirt a little chocolate syrup into the bowl and mix. Keep adding more until you reach the desired color.
  • If you want add seeds, raisins, corn, or pudding to the mixture.
  • Put the bowl into the microwave for about 30 seconds.
  • Take the bowl out of the microwave and let cool for a few minutes, then mold it into the shape you want.
  • Place the form into a ziplock bag and cut one of the corner tips of the bag.
  • Squeeze it out of the bag on to a plate and make it into any shape you desire.
  • Place plate into the fridge for about 5 minutes to let the form settle.
  • Have fun and Prank away!!!

Fake Poop #2 


  • Supplies: 1/2 cup of white glue, brown paint, 1/2 cup warm water, 1 teaspoon of borax powder, two bowls, spoon
  • In a bowl mix together 1/2 cup of white glue and a couple of squirts of brown paint. Start with less, you can always add more paint to achieve the color desired.
  • In the other bowl mix 1 teaspoon of borax powder with 1/2 cup of warm water. Stir until mixture is dissolved.
  • While stirring, combine the borax mixture to you glue/paint mixture. This will immediately start to thicken and become jelly like.
  • Use your hands to knead the mixture for a minute until it leaves the sides of the bowl clean.
  • Roll the new mixture into a ball then roll into a sausage shape while tapering one of the ends to a point and curl into a “poop” like shape.
  • And let the pranking begin!!! 
You can leave a “surprise” on the floor, in a bed, or on the front step for someone. Or can place it on a plate in the fridge with at notes stating “Stool Sample Collected on 4-1-15!”

Are you planning any good pranks today? Would love to hear about them!!!

*Please note that these are not edible, please supervise you pet and/or your children at all times if you are going to leave these out as a prank. Although I didn’t have any problems with this creations, there is a potential for them to stain fabric or carpet. 

Homemade Animal Cards

 Check out some of my mom’s animal quote cards she has made.

“No animal I know of can consistently be more of a friend and companion than a dog.” -Stanley Leinwall
“No matter how little money and how few possessions you own, having a dog makes you rich.” -Louis Sabin

If you want the best seat in the house…move the dog.

A house is not a home without a dog.

“Blessed is the person who has earned the love of an old dog.
-Sydney Jeanne Seward
“Whoever said you can’t buy happiness forgot little puppies.”
-Gene Hill

“Happiness is a warm puppy!”
-Charles Shultz

“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.”
-Roger Caras

“A dog is man’s best friend and vice versa.”
-Josh Billings

My goal in life is to be as good of a person as my dog already thinks I am.

Which one is your favorite???
Happy Thursday


DIY Photo Blocks

 
With a little muscle and a delicate paw you too can make one of a kind photo blocks. This is a great project to make with your kids, for a gift or a great way to display multiple photos. Here is what you need and the steps to take to make your own photo blocks.

Supplies
3 4×4 Wooden Blocks
Sander/Sand Paper
Paint
Paint Brush
Mod Podge (Glossy)
Photos

I like buying my supplies from TradeFix Direct, they have hundreds of fantastic products at great prices, it’s amazing!


Directions:
* With help from my humans, they went to Home Depot and had them cut three 4×4 blocks of wood.
*Once home we sanded down all the surfaces, corners and edges of the blocks.
*Using white wash colored paint I put about 3 or 4 coats of paint on each block. The wood soaked the paint up so fast. You apply as much or as little as you please.
*Next I went through a stack of photos and picked out my favorite ones. As you can see I tore the photos to give it a ruff look. You can cut, rip, or tear them.
*Finally, I brushed glossy Mod Podge on the bottom a photo and placed it on one of the sides. Pressing it firmly to the block making sure I got all the air bubbles out. Then, I took the Mod Podge and brushed a thin layer over the photo and the entire side of the block. This will help secure the photo to the block.

There you have it, simple and fun DIY Photo Blocks! 
Hope you have a fabulous Monday!
