Super Simple Garden in a Bag

I don’t know about you, but I love the way gardening makes me feel. There is something about digging in the dirt that can’t be beat for simple happiness. And seeing those first green shoots push through the earth, or flowers following the sun. Love it!

Super Simple with Terri ODave “The Garden Guy” Owens and I are making a garden in a bag in this video.

Living in the Southwest, where planting can start as early as March, I already have blossoms in my yard from pansies to bougainvillea. And the weather is gorgeous this time of year, especially in the evenings.

I love to light luminaries while my husband and I sit and talk about the day, or we gather with friends.

Want to learn how to make flower luminaries? I will be teaching a couple of workshops at the Mohave Home and Garden Show, Friday and Saturday, April 20 and 21 at the fairgrounds in Kingman, Arizona. In addition to the class on Night Blooming Luminaries I will also be teaching a Wow Factor Walls workshop–DIY faux finishes you can use for a variety of home décor projects.

Directions to the show and more can be found here.

See you there!

I have a baby shower to go to so I am making these cute, super simple onesies! I love one-of-a-kind gifts, don’t you?
Super SImple with Terri O

 

Level: Easy

 

 

Supplies:

· One package of onesies (note: they come in different sizes. I used 3-6 months)

· One package of “prefolded” 3-ply cloth diapers.

· So Soft paint from Deco Art

· Stamps

· Sponge brush

· Paint brushes

· Paper plate

· Glitter paint

· Fabric markers (optional)

· Small piece of cardboard or wax paper

Instructions:

  1. Pre wash the diapers and the onesies. Do not add fabric softener. If they are not flat and smooth after drying iron them to remove any wrinkles.
  2. Place cardboard or wax paper inside the onesie in case the paint seeps thru the fabric. It is pretty thin so it might.
  3. With sponge brush apply paint to stamps and stamp designs to front of onesie and along the edges of the diapers.
  4. Add any necessary detail with paint brush or glitter glue to stamped design. Let dry.
  5. Iron your finished designs with an iron on medium heat to set the paint or toss them in a hot dryer for about 10 minutes.
