Easy DIY Macrame

I've been wanting one of these macrame wall hangings for my room and suddenly realized it might actually be pretty simple to try to make one. I always appreciate something a little more if I've put some work into it myself and given it my own personal touch. This was a very basic version, but I did it in an evening while binge watching The Mentalist. It's always a win when I can marathon a project in one night...while watching tv!

Cactus Painted Rocks

This is a super fun craft to do with the kids while they're home for the summer! The only problem here in Phx is where do you find rocks that aren't jagged-y? We got lucky and went over to the water run off area near the park in our neighborhood and found a few! But if you live near a river, snag a few rocks and start painting. This project is so fun! We used a couple of different greens on the little mini cacti. And then to paint the details we used a very small detail brush with an off white paint.
