Duck Dynasty Birthday DIY

9 Nov

My son wanted a small, simple Duck Dynasty themed Birthday party. So Here a few things I did, not only simple DIY’s but cheap!

First the cups, I found hunting temporary tattoos and I had clear cups so I cut out the ducks only and applied them to the cups, just like you would your skin. Worked great and we had theme cups for 97 cents!

They looked like this.

Then for the take home treats they each got this. Which came out to under $5.00 a kid.

I found green tins at the Dollar Tree $1.00 each

Duck Dynasty cups at Wal-mart $.89 each

Sunflower seeds $.44 each

Beef sticks a pack of 6 $4.98

Slim Jims 28 pack for $4.98

My son made each kid a paracord key chain

Homemade trail mix

I wanted to make some beards. Just used brown paper, hot glue and bamboo sticks.

Image

Made a simple pattern then went to town making different shaped beards. Stuck them in a coffee tin, added some tissue and later a sign on the front.

Image

For decorations I used my husbands hunting cloth, mixed camo & colored balloons, and some real tree scrapbook paper. Not much to it. The boys seemed to enjoy it!

Glowing Jugs

Horrible picture, I know! But shows the jugs we decorated glowing in the trees at night.

Another camp craft, this time very close to Halloween we made glowing milk jugs. The kids painted clean, gallon size, plastic jugs. I tied them to tree limbs and at night added  a glow stick to each one. They looked very cool and creepy, since some of us painted a spooky theme.

Easy Tie Dye

7 Nov

Not a huge fan of the mess of tie dye so when I saw this idea on Pinterest I jumped at our first opportunity to give it a try!

Image

We were camping, I like to do a craft when camping, I brought the supplies along with us!

All you need is spray bottles, rubbing alcohol, permanent markers, plastic cups, rubber bands and white T-shirts.

Stand the cups up inside the shirt, place a rubber band over the top to make a little drawing area. Draw whatever you wish inside the circles, we have found the more color the better! Spray with rubbing alcohol. Let it dry a little, then remove rubber bands and cups hang to finish the drying process and Wa La! A super cute tie dye effect shirt!

Other kids at the campground wanted to know where they got the shirts!
