DIY baseball hat

{We've moved! Visit us at our new and improved blog at: Texas Craft House}

Tomorrow my kindergarten class has a field trip. Most of the day is going to be outside and it's suppose to be upper 80s for temperatures. I wanted something so my face wouldn't burn, but also cute and representative of my school.
I found a standard trucker/baseball hat for $3.30 to match my school colors and   a white paint pen for letters.  I also used a piece of chalk from my craft room to practice my letters/spacing and to trace over with my paint pen.
I think it turned out cute. In the bottom corner I put my school initials and kinder for kibdergarten.  This hat had a strap in back instead of those little snapping buttons so I also wrote my last name. I used a paper towel as support when writing. When the paint dries I'll just use a wet napkin to wipe away the chalk.
I plan on using this hat on future field trips and even field day coming up. It was easy to do and the chalking before helped me because I could  practice and erase my mistakes if needed.

DIY Baseball Nail Art

{We've moved! Visit us at our new and improved blog at: Texas Craft House}

It's Rangers season here in Texas. Elisabeth and I love going to the games and sporting our fan gear.
My sister and I went to get manicures and I wanted baseball nails. The nail salon was packed! Instead we went and bought some nail polish and did it ourselves. I used Essie nail colors along with a base coat and a top coat. I did the baseball stitches with a red permanent marker. It was so simple, the Sharpe made it effortless and easy to do. I love how they turned out.
I cant wait to think up more nail art ideas... the marker is the way to go! Have you seen Aztec nail art? That might be my next project... maybe on an accent nail only.
Have a Happy Easter! Go Rangers!
