I am in charge of crafts for MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) this year and I am sooooooo excited. This opens up a whole new blogging topic! I have lots of ideas (mostly stolen from other blogs and people) mind you, and I plan on showcasing them here in case you are interested in seeing what we crafty moms will be up to this year. Also, it will motivate me to be on the ball .
First project: name tags
Request: Moms dont like to poke holes in their shirts ( or so I am told) so stay away from the pin name tags. hmmmmmm. I searched google images for DIY name tags and didn’t get much, then decided I would search for DIY necklaces and see if I got any cute images on google, well I did!!!!
Here is what I found
How perfect is this? The MOPS theme this year is game related, developing a mom strategy and having fun being a mom. I think puzzle pieces fit perfectly with the theme!
Here is another cute idea
Gathering stray puzzle pieces is not hard in our house. Although I did have to go to the thrift store and pick up a couple more sacrificial 50 cent puzzles. Too bad so sad.
Quick directional run down: poke hole in puzzle piece, trace the puzzle piece onto cute paper, cut, glue to puzzle piece, poke hole in paper, dstressed edges, stick on name letters, loop cord through hole, string beads, DONE!!!
Here is my version
Please excuse the unkempt model
Thats my name don’t wear it out, hehe
Hope my fellow moms like it!
Stay tuned for more craftiness to come!
