What kind of crafts do you usually during the warmer months?
Are you looking for a special way to say happy birthday, or celebrate an anniversary or Mother’s Day? We’ve found 2 really creative and sweet ideas to show someone how much you care!
Celebrate With A Balloon & Photo/Note For Each Year – This is such a creative and whimsical idea from Bebe a la Mode Designs! She used it to celebrate her anniversary, (be sure to check out her blog for the adorable photos she included) but this would work just as well for a birthday! For each year (age or anniversary) fill up a balloon and tie a personalized note or photo to it. If you are celebrating a birthday, use photos from birthday’s past! Put them in a bedroom or at the breakfast table to surprise your loved ones!

How do you usually tell someone special happy birthday?
There are a ton of tutorials out there for crafting your own ornaments. Handmade ornaments not only look great on your tree, but they also make fantastic (and affordable) gifts! Crafting a new ornament each year could also be a special holiday tradition you start with your friends or family. And if your family isn’t down to craft you could see if there is a craft swap nearby where fellow crafters get together and swap handmade ornaments. Check out these tutorials for dozens upon dozens of DIY ornaments!
