Dream House Chicken Coop

When we saw this chicken coop that Southern revival made we smiled and and thought it was so worth sharing with you guys! Chicken coop with a sign that says keep calm and raise chickens and even has a nightlight and a pink staircase must be one of the cutest we have seen.

How to Make Paper Beads

A great tutorial from designdazzle.com

First, using a sharp knife or scissors, cut your paper to the shapes shown below. I like to cut a 11.5″ template from an old cereal box and then draw multiple images by tracing onto scrapbook paper lightly with a pencil. Then use a knife or scissors to cut out (your kids may be able to do this depending on age – but you DO need to be reasonably accurate).

Using a cocktail stick, wrap the wide end of each strip around tightly and secure using a tiny spot of glue (I used Tombow liquid glue which holds and dries in a couple of seconds).

Keep on rolling using the occasional spot of glue until  you reach the end – and you are done! You can see below several examples of each bead – you don’t have to worry at all about them all looking identical – they won’t! Give the beads a coat of Glossy Mod Podge for extra shine and protection.
