I Made Salt Dough Bowl Fillers!

Greetings everyone! What a beautiful day and evening! I hope you all had a wonderful day! Mine was hectic, but hectic can be good….can’t it?? I was on the run most of the day. It feels good to sit down on my laptop and blog about an adorable craft project my daughter and I worked on over the weekend!
If you have not checked out Colleen’s blog yet you should do so! It is full of inspiration and ideas. She puts her whole heart into everything she does and it shows! Click HERE to visit And Baby Makes Five.
I made these salt dough bowl fillers for the Winter/Christmas season last year. And thought some Spring and Summer  bowl fillers would add just the right touch around the house. Here is how they all turned out. Be warned…lots of photos~
All ready for the 4th of July~
Stars and Stripes~
Bees, Beehive and some flowers~
Buzz Buzz~
Some heart in hand fillers~
Olde Crows and Pineapples~
Summer Flowers~
Close Up~
Sheep and Stars~
Bunnies and Carrots~
Running Rabbits and Sunflowers~
Mini Sunflowers~
Flags and Watermelons~
Here is my doughboard’s new look~

The lantern is from Yankee Candle, I got it for $7.00 today! I love it! It says “Yankee Candle Co. Est. 1969”. A maple pancakes tea light is what’s inside. Mmmmm!
Oh and one more photo. I picked up some African Violets at the grocery store. $1.99 a piece. I couldn’t resist. But I have heard they can be temperamental plants. So I hope I can keep them alive. They are the most beautiful magenta color. My Mom has lots of African Violets, she has good luck with them….”Hello Mom…HELP.”!!  Haha!
I hope you enjoyed all of my crafty photos!What a fun project! My daughter and I had a blast creating! Everyone, give these a try. You will love them!
Until next time, take care.
