Stained glass owls

Over the school holidays my 4 year old had a friend over for a playdate. He was a very sweet 4 year old but wanted to play with everything we had. Fortunately he loves to craft as much as we do so I was happy for him to explore our crafty cupboard(s).

I thought it would be fun to make something he could take home with him so we made sweet little stained glass owls.

Materials you will need to make stained glass owls:
Pre-cut card owls from Baker Ross
selection of colourful acetate sheets cut into small pieces
contact paper

How to make stained glass owls:

Cut a piece of contact paper slightly larger than the pre-cut owl, remove the backing paper and place the owl on it.

We were sent the stained glass owl decorations from Baker Ross which I adapted slightly for this craft.

Win Lenor Unstoppables and wash Summer into your Autumn wardrobe!

The start of the new school year means my washing basket is full of essential school items. My 4 year old must see it as his mission to get as messy as possible and give me something to do whilst he’s at school. Fortunately for me I received some samples of the new Lenor Unstoppables which are pure perfume for your fabrics in a bead format.

There are three delicious scents – Bliss, Lavish and Fresh. You simply add a handful to your washing machine, and wash into your clothes along with your normal detergent. The scents can be used on their own, or mixed, to create customisable and personal fragrances that last for up to 12 weeks in storage and keep your whole wardrobe smelling beautiful!

Their survey, which is all about the impact that your favourite outfits have on your day-to-day confidence, has found that though UK women are great at buying clothes, we’re then not very good at wearing them – we worry that they’ll be damaged, and so fail to benefit from how great they can make us feel! Over a third of UK women save their favourite clothes for best, so they stay looking new, but 46% of women said that feeling fabulous in their clothes enables them to have a better day!

My daughter has enjoyed helping me mix the colourful beads when I put the washing on and both children have noticed how delicious their clothes now smell :) This morning I was looking for something to wear to a party tomorrow and found some long lost clothes in my wardrobe. I am terrible at rotating the same old clothes and keeping some for ‘best’. Now I have discovered Lenor Unstoppables I am looking forward to enjoying all my clothes more often, boosting my clothes scent and perhaps even holding on to those happy Summer feelings through the colder months.


If my post has piqued your interest then I have some samples to giveaway so you can try Lenor Unstoppbles for yourself. For your chance to win a set of the 3 fragrances, and there are three sets to be won, simply complete the Rafflecopter widget below. You must answer the question and leave a comment to enter.
