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 20

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 […]



Make Some Egg Tea Cups #TigerStrypesBlog 6

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 […]

Enjoy Lawn Games with Wayfair #Sponsored 13

Enjoy Lawn Games with Wayfair! #Wayfair #Sponsored Now that Spring is finally here…well almost here in the mountains of AZ.  It was about 35° here last night, so old man Winter just doesn’t really want to go away.  Other than that, the days are wonderful and it’s finally time to start planning on enjoying time outside.  We recently purchased a gazebo for our backyard and […]

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? […]

Create a St. Patrick’s Day Treasure I finally had time to do some crafting!!!  It’s been awhile that I had a craft post, since I haven’t had much time for things like that lately.  I thought with it being already March (crazy how time flies when you get older) it would be the perfect time for a St. Patrick’s Day craft.  Something that I always love, is […]

Create a Back to School Crayon Crown 20

Create a Back to School Crayon Crown I wanted to make another gift for the wonderful teachers in our area, and let you all know how I did it.  With the budgets of some schools at a very low amount, I personally think that teachers are forced to spend too much of their own money, for things that are needed in the classroom.  I thought […]

Create a Photo Book Craft Who doesn’t love having photos from past events or family vacations that you can enjoy later on?  I always share my photos from trips online, but love to have some that are special sitting around, or even for sharing with family.  I saw this available on a photo sale site and figured, “why not just make my own?”  It was really […]

How to Make a Recycled Tire Planter 15

How to Make a Recycled Tire Planter When it was time to get new tires for my truck, I wanted to use the old ones for something around home.  I don’t like paying the recycling fee to the shop to get rid of them, and figured that they would look pretty good in my yard.  There are so many other things that you can do with […]

Make Some Upcycled Denim Planters #DIY #Craft 25

Make Some Upcycled Denim Planters #DIY #Craft I have a bunch of old pants laying around, hoping to some day become something else.  I remember years ago, my Mom making my brother a blanket with squares of old jeans, but figured I don’t have the time (or the patience) to do that, so wanted to figure out something a bit easier.  I figured that it would […]

Make an Upcycled Seed Starter #DIY #Garden 22

How To Make an Upcycled Seed Starter #DIY #Garden I saw this seed starter project on Made Everyday awhile back, and thought it would be great to make, now that Spring is finally here in the White Mountains.  The oak trees just sprouted leaves, so that tells us that it’s time to start gardening.  Using these will make it fun to plant flowers and help them […]
