DIY Everyday Challenge: Fingerprint Tree Fall Craft

As I said in my challenge post from yesterday, Emily at Chasing Ayden is doing a 5-day DIY Everyday Challenge this week from Monday to Friday. She offered up for other people to join her so I decided to take the challenge! I think she is doing a Fall craft per day, so you should definitely check out her site to see what cool things she comes up with! I, however, will be doing any crafts that I can do with the limited supplies that I already own, so Fall crafts may be out of the agenda, but we’ll see.

Today I decided to make a fingerprint tree using my sons’ fingerprints. Here’s how it went:

I am terribly bad at crafts…which sucks because I REALLY enjoy crafting. So please, don’t laugh at my crafting attempts–ahh, what the hell!

I’ll be laughing at them, so I GUESS, you can too. 🙂

Anyways, I’ve found lots of cute DIY toilet paper roll owls across Pinterest, so I wanted to try my own with some supplies I already had on hand.

Here we are:

To get started, you need green, white, and orange construction paper, glue, toilet paper rolls, and scissors

DIY Laundry Basket Bassinet

DIY Laundry Basket Bassinet

One week after I had my second son this summer, I went to stay with my mom for a few days to help me out with handling a toddler and a newborn. She stayed home with my two siblings and me while we were young so she is my goto person for parenting tips! While I was visiting, all I had for my newborn to sleep in was a Pack-n-Play. It didn’t seem to be convenient, though, as my toddler kept me busy chasing him around the house that I was hardly ever able to be near the newborn.

My mom grabbed a laundry basket of hers, put some baby blankets in it, and put my newborn on top. IT. WAS. AWESOME. I could move him from room to room and it fit anywhere! AND, since I was recovering from a c-section, I wasn’t able to lift anything heavy. This was the perfect solution for that. I could push the basket around the house with my foot or I could attach a tether to the basket and pull my baby everywhere that I went.

Here is how to put together a DIY laundry basket bassinet:

NOTE: My son was only able to use this for about 6 weeks until he outgrew it.

Begin with a basic rectangle shaped laundry basket.

Fold your first blanket to roughly fit the bottom of the laundry basket and put it in.
