    $10 DIY Spooky Halloween Mantel

    I don’t know if it’s quarantine and Covid or if I’ve just fully embraced the holiday, but this is the first year I’ve decorated for Halloween.

    Silk Tie Dyed Easter Eggs

      As much as I love the typical color dyed easter eggs, these silk tie dyed ones took our eggs to the next level. I was just as excited as the kids when we finally unwrapped the finished eggs to look at the patterns.
