Making the World Cuter: Toot Toot Tuesday-Cute Rules

A blog where one woman is on a mission to make the world cuter, one kid, cupcake or crafty thing at a time.


Toot Toot Tuesday-Cute Rules

Thanks for all the cuteness yesterday, I can't wait for a quiet hour or so to peruse them today, and find a few of my favorites!

The tutorial for today is just a simple one that I needed to do for my son...
I made this "rules" framed "artwork" for my daughter ages ago, and it has been hanging cutely on her wall ever since. 

Well my 3 year old is really into super heroes lately, and for some reason has turned into sort of a monster kid the last couple months. He seems to wake up grumpy and hasn't been all that good at sharing or controlling his temper, hopefully it's a phase.
So I decided to make him a little reminder for his wall.
I took a frame, paint and some white card stock cut to fit...
Painted the frame blue, leaving some of the wood showing through, just because I'm like that....and started painting some bright "super hero-ish" colors across my paper...

Then I wrote what real super hero's do on the paint with my trusty Sharpie, (seriously what would my life be without sharpies...I shudder to think!).
And voila! It's already helped improve his attitude, and when he catches himself doing something off of this list, he makes sure to point out that it's because he's a super hero.

I thought the family could use some "rules" as well, after seeing a few family-rule canvases floating around, and decided to put my spin on it...
I had some paneling pieces, so I took one small piece and painted it gray. Took some of my go-to 7gypsies paper, and cut it into strips to fit the larger strips on the paneling.

I then mod-podged those to the panel.

After that, I used white paint and painted over the middle of each strip, used my good-old sharpie again and came up with this...

(the picture is not great, as I took it last night right before bed, but you get the idea)
I drilled holes in the top so I can hang it with wire, as soon as I can get to it, it will match my Valentines Decorations so nicely!

Oh, I understand and sympathize with your "grumpy three year old" situation. There seems to be a whole "wrong side of the bed" theme going on in our house recently. I love the rules you made....very inspiring, thanks!!
