Doodles in Real-Life

Making Doodles Come to Life

Do you ever need a quick crafting idea? Do you live with younger children? If you answered yes to both then I’ve got your solution! An idea is finding a drawing or doodles they’ve made and sewing a real-life version. My little sister made a drawing of a bunny holding a carrot and I used felt and colored thread to recreate it. You will need basic sewing experience.

First, I traced the original shape of the doodle into the white felt. That’s because the bunny is white in her drawing. Then I cut it out and made an extra for the other side. Then I embroidered one felt piece with colored thread. I placed the decorated piece of felt on top of the second piece of felt (designs on the inside) and sewed around it partially, flipped it inside out, and stuffed it before stitching it back up. It is a really creative and personal present that is bound to cause smiles.

Heart-Shaped Photo Wall Pinterest-Inspired

dorm heart wall

Want to know a cute and creative way to personalize a dorm? In 2015, at the beginning of Spring semester, there was a snow day so I decided to decorate my room with a heart made of the travel photos I had taken from studying abroad in Australia. Fortunately, I found the heart-shaped photo template on Pinterest and it’s a wonderful way to display photographs!

the break down of the heart is as follows (from the top down):

First, you’ll need 40 images printed out (I used 3 x 2 dimensions) and preferably painter’s tape.

  1. 2 rows of 2 photos
  2. 2 rows of 3 photos
  3. 7 photos
  4. 7 photos
  5. 6 photos
  6. 4 photos
  7. 3 photos
  8. 2 photos
  9. 1 photo

Overall, there are nine rows in total. As a tip, I would start with the two rows of 7 photos in the 3rd and 4th row of the heart first and then arrange the top and bottom of the heart after.

Next, put rolled up tape behind each photo to attach it to the wall you want to put the heart on. Finally, step back from afar and rearrange the photos to your liking. Also, try to experiment with the variety of photos and colors you use.

Seriously, this is so perfect for dorms because then you won’t damage the walls. I don’t know if this has changed but when I was in college, some they could charge you for damages made to the walls of your room. So this way you get to customize to your heart’s content. ;P

Additionally, you can decorate a dorm by ordering prints that stick and re-stick like the ones from the Photage App. Use promo code:HONEYBUNNYTWEE to get $5 off your first print!

Perler Animals

little sister brother

For little sister’s last day of second grade we decided to make cute little presents for her classmates: Perler animals. I had just introduced my sister to perler beads, one of my favorite crafts when I was a kid. Of course, back then I needed my mom’s help to iron my creations so adult guidance is suggested.

To make these you’ll need:

  • 1 iron
2015-06-16 22.29.26-1

Instructions:

  • Arrange the beads however you’d like onto the pre-made pegboards.
  • Place the fusion paper on top.
  • Iron on high for about 30 seconds to a minute.
  • Flip over the attached design which and remove the pegboard.
  • Finally, place fusion paper on and iron this side.

We worked really hard and diligently to finish before my sister’s last day. She designed a variety of octopi, dolphins, fish, and pets with colors and styles according to what she thought her classmates would like and I helped her iron them. Also, we wrote names on  foam stars with twist ties so we could put the Perler animals into personalized bags for each of my sister’s classmates. Overall, they were a hit with her friends!

Funfetti Pancakes

Perhaps you’ve just finished trying sprinkle lips and now you’re thinking to yourself, “Well, now what do I do with all these extra sprinkles?” Have no fear, simply add a bit of sprinkles to your pancakes for a fun twist on a breakfast classic. Above all, funfetti pancakes are a fun way to start the morning.

You’ll need:

  • Pancake batter
    • 2 cups of Bisquick mix
    • 1 cup of milk
    • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of sprinkles
  • Butter or oil for the frying pan
  • Toppings
    • Whipped cream
    • Sliced strawberries

Instructions:

  • Prepare the pancake batter
  • Add the sprinkles to the batter and mix well
  • Add a layer of butter or oil to a frying pan at about medium to medium-high heat
  • As soon as the pan is hot and the butter/oil is starting to slightly boil pour pancake mix in small, circular portions, flip when the bottom is golden brown, and wait until the other side is fully cooked as well before removing it from the pan and serving on a plate.
  • Repeat as necessary with the rest of the batter or until you are satisfied with the size of your stack of pancakes.
  • Finally, decorate with strawberries and whipped cream and you’re ready to serve.

I made these multi-color funfetti pancakes for my 8-year old sister and my 10-year old brother for breakfast one day before they had to go to school. Overall, it was quick, easy and they gave my siblings a sweet and delicious way to start off their school day.

Green Smoothie +Avocado Pesto

green smoothie avocado pesto pasta

I tried two green recipes: A green smoothie recipe from Buzzfeed and avocado pesto from Tastemade. I had to double both recipes to make enough to share with my family of seven. Overall, these were very quick and easy recipes I’d highly recommend. They are both gorgeous green colors that are practically too pretty to consume. There’s just something about eating green that makes me feel recharged and healthier. Does anyon else get total ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ vibes from these?

The Green Smoothie Ingredients

  • 1 cup of unsweetened soy milk
  • 1/2 a banana
  • 1/2 a pear
  • 1 cup of kale (packed)
  • 1 tablespoon of almond butter.

Simply, put all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until the ingredients are completely blended together. What a fast and healthy way to have your greens. By the way I definitely had my qualms about the kale, but this smoothie was surprisingly yummy and sweet. It doesn’t even need any additional sugar.

The avocado pesto is made of:

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 large handful of basil 
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon of salt
  • 4 tablespoons of lemon juice

Put all the ingredients into a food processer or blender. Boil egg noodles, add the pesto, and enjoy. This dish had a mixed response from my family: my two youngest siblings didn’t like avocado at the time, but everyone else thoroughly enjoyed it. My mom used to call avocados nature’s butter and she’d serve it to us mashed up with crushed ice and sugar in a glass. When I was younger I didn’t like the taste of avocado either, but eventually it grew on me.

Brownies That Are Simple, Easy, and Egg-less

Here’s how to make simple and easy egg-less Brownies. This idea came to us due to the fact that my little sister and I ran out of eggs and didn’t want to wait to get more before we made brownies. It was due to our impatience that we decided to experiment with what we had: bananas.

eggless brownie ingredients banana

To make this brownie recipe you’ll need:

  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1 box of devil’s food cake mix (we used Pillsbury)
  • 1/4 cup of crushed walnuts

Bananas can act as an egg substitute and an added bonus is a little bit of banana flavoring to your baked goods.

Note: This goes without saying but, do not add walnuts if nut allergies are an issue. If you do add walnuts and are serving them at a party or gathering please make sure that you label them with a warning note.

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees,

Mix all ingredients together (the mixture will be thick),

Pour the batter into a 9*13 inch pan, and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Finally, take the pan out of the oven, let them cool, cut the brownies, and voilà, you’re ready to serve your yummy egg-less brownies!

Final Thoughts About the Brownies

My little sister loved these because she really likes bananas, that’s even her nickname, ‘Banana’. She even requests that we make these even when we do have eggs. If you like the taste of chocolate and bananas this is definitely the brownie recipe for you. Let me know: do you have a favorite ingredient substitute when baking?
