So, I've decided to call my craft series "If SwellChel can do it..." Meaning - if I can make these crafts - you can make them too! Trust me!
There's a few things you should know about me as far as crafting goes:
(1) I like easy crafts,
(2) I like inexpensive crafts,
(3) I'm not good at coming up with crafts, but I like to copy them from more talented people :) , and
(4) I am not a perfectionist and they never turn out perfect ... but that's okay!
A few months ago I came across a fun craft for the summer at one of my FAVORITE blogs : A Little Tipsy! (seriously - check it out - she's awesome!)
Aren't those cute? A Little Tipsy gives an easy tutorial on how to make them. I thought they would be so fun to use in the backyard in our little kiddie pools - and I knew the kids would love it!
Here are the items I used ... a cheap-o package of colorful sponges, zip-ties from Home Depot, and rubber grip liner. (Any locals want some zip-ties and grip liner I have extra up for grabs!)
... and here is how they turned out! As cute as A Little Tipsy's? No. Are the kids loving them? Yes!
