Make a Rootin’ Tootin’ Christmas Gift for Friends #TigerStrypesBlog 18

Make a Rootin’ Tootin’ Christmas Gift #Christmas #Gift #TigerStrypesBlog It’s hard to believe that it’s almost Christmas time.  Here in the mountains of Arizona we are still looking around, saying “where is the snow?”  The weather here has been much warmer than normal and things just don’t feel right.  I did decorate the house to try and make it feel like Christmas, but I need […]

Wicker Plate Tray Halloween Pumpkin Craft #TigerStrypesBlog 20

Wicker Plate Tray Halloween Pumpkin Craft #Halloween#Craft #TigerStrypesBlog The weather here in the mountains of Arizona is always getting cold in the evening.  Halloween just a few weeks away, if we end up carving a real pumpkin…it will be toast by the time the trick-or-treater crowd gets here.  I figured that I could make some Wicker Plate Tray Halloween Pumpkins, like I saw on Pinterest […]

Make Some Wooden Pumpkins for Fall #TigerStrypesBlog 30

Make Some Wooden Pumpkins for Fall #Autumn #Craft #TigerStrypesBlog It’s hard to believe that Fall is already here.  Living in the White Mountains of Arizona, this is my favorite time of year.  The colors of our oak and aspen trees are absolutely amazing and the weather finally says “see you later” to warm temps!  We always plan a UTV ride for “Fall Colors” as we […]

Create a Redneck Dopp Kit #Camping #Outdoor #Upcycle #TigerStrypesBlog As most of you know, my husband and son are offroad UTV racers.  The team name of “Redneck Edition” is one that my husband picked while talking to some guys at work.  They were looking at one of the trucks and how it said it was a certain kind of “edition.”  My husband looked at his […]

Make Some Wooden Bowl Mushrooms #TigerStrypesBlog 10

Make Some Wooden Bowl Mushrooms #Craft #Outdoor #Upcycle I had some old wooden bowls laying around that were either never getting used, or in pretty bad shape.  I wanted to make some decor for the yard and thought it would be fun to turn them into some mushrooms.  Some of you remember back in the day, the good old Super Mario Bros.?  I always loved […]

Learn How to Make Some Troll Headbands #TigerStrypesBlog 8

Learn How to Make Some Troll Headbands I always loved playing with those pencils that had hair back in the day.  You would have the hair all messed up and then spin it between your hands, and the hair would go together perfectly.  I always wished I could do that with my own hair! ha/ha  When the Trolls movie came out, it really made me […]


Make a Floating Floral Mother’s Day Gift #TigerStrypesBlog 10

Make a Floating Floral Mother’s Day Gift It’s already almost Mother’s Day, and if you’re like me, you can never think of what to get your Mom.  For one, if there is something that she wants, she just goes out and gets it.  For two, they tell you that they don’t want anything…whatever!!!  You’re getting something Mom!! ha/ha I’ve seen things like this on Pinterest […]

How to Make Some Egg Tea Cups #Easter  #DIY #Craft #TigerStrypesBlog So with Easter being over, how many of you still have the baskets and the eggs sitting around doing nothing?  I had this one, just sitting on my shelf, saying “use me!” We always think, “hey, I’ll just store them for next year.”   Then next year rolls around, we forget they are in […]

Make Some Bunny Tail Treat Cups #TigerStrypesBlog

Make Some Bunny Tail Treat Cups I can’t believe that Resurrection Sunday, or Easter is just around the corner.  My Mom was so right about time flying when you got older.  Don’t tell her she was right though, I don’t want to get that “look” from her! ha/ha My family is one to celebrate Easter in the fact that it’s the remembrance of Jesus dying […]


Make a Sunflower Door Hanger #TigerStrypesBlog 10

How to Make a Sunflower Door Hanger I’ve been looking at the calendar and have been told that Spring is here, but with getting snow last night here in the mountains of Arizona, it makes me wonder.  I figured that if maybe I made a Spring craft, that I might fake out Mother Nature and get her to give us some sun, instead of snow?
