2 Minute Tuesday : Seasonal Soap Display

owl soaps

I saw these cute little owls in a advertisement and knew it would  be fun to use them to dress up some soap in my guest bathroom.

I took bars of soap, wrapped in brown craft paper and glued the owl cutouts. Finished with a little burlap and twine. Just a pop of color in my bathroom.  What do you think?  2 Minute Project? Check!

diy housewarming or hostess gift…

Hi everyone-  How was your weekend?   My son is in the middle of varsity tennis tryouts so my nerves are on edge!  I swear it’s harder for parents, which my son is like, “Um, mom I am the one on the court!” Oh yeah, right.  Anyway, we  had several rainy days this week, which lead to cancelled practices which meant I had some “free” time on my hands.  So, that means time for blog projects.

Here’s a fun  hostess or housewarming gift for the pending holiday and party season.  All you need is a mason jar, matches, striking paper (I used the paper on the size of the bulk match box at Kroger), tea light ( or large candle). And, a fun label finishes it off!   Boom! That’s it!

I also had velcro  to secure the striking paper to the bottom of the jar (double sticky tape would work too)
