3 in 1 Outdoor Game Golf, Bean Bag, and Football

We are having so much fun at our house lately. Winter blues have finally passed now its time to have a blast! So I wanted a fun game we could take camping with us. I have seen the toss game, a golf game etc. I thought Why can’t I make a fun game that could do all 3. So I came up with this 3 in 1 outdoor game that incorporates them all. With a few simple moves of a hinge, you are ready for the next game.  Read below on how to make this 3 in 1 outdoor game. I made two boards for this post you could make one and be fine to play all the games. You would only need to do 2 peice of mdf board instead of 3

Making your 3 in 1 Outdoor Game 

Cut Down MDF/Wood Board

So you will want to get one board of MDF and cut off the end I cut off about 11 inches and felt that was a good place for my middle board to be. If you want yours longer or shorter adjust to your liking. At first, I used my circular saw and it was ok but I had troubles it was my first time using it. I ended up  I used a jigsaw to cut my piece off it wasn’t super straight but I don’t have a table saw believe me it’s to-get list. So I had to sand down the end of my board to make it flatter.

Place and Cut Out Circles

You will want to place and cut out your circle. I used plates to help with the sizes it helped get the circle I was looking for with not much effort 🙂 The plates I used is the smaller cake plate and a larger regular plate.I just eyeballed the placement but you can measure if you want to get it just right. Once your circles are in place take a pencil and draw on your circle to the board.  Now you can cut out the circle.

Cutting out the Circles

First, make sure your board is propped up I used my saw horses to hold my boards.I took a drill bit and cut a hole in the middle of the circle. Then I took my hole cutting attachment piece and cut a big hole out of the middle of each circle. Next, I took my jigsaw and cut from the middle to the edge of the drawn circle I cut it 3 times from middle to edge close togeather so I could put the jigsaw in just right. Now you will want to follow the outline of the circle with your jigsaw to cut out the circle. I tried to stay in the line but my holes aren’t perfect 🙂 They work for what I need I’ll get better with the time that’s all that counts right!

Also, watch your feet once the circle is cut out it will fall out onto the ground. Sand your holes so they are smooth you don’t want to reach into a pokey hole. I used 220 grit sandpaper. You do have to hand sand the holes I tried to do it with my orbital sander it was a no go 🙁 Times this by 2 if you want to have a back and forth game. You could easily just make one board and play on it too.

Cutting Your Ends

Take your 3rd board and cut it into 4 pieces I cut mine at 12 inches apart.(this would be for 2 game boards for the 4 pieces) This is for the ends that are attached with hinges. 2 for each game board.


Attaching your Hinges

Now you can attach your hinges. You will need 8 hinges 4 for each game board. The hinges I bought the screws ended up being too long so I bought 1 inch nut and bolts to go through it. They poke out but it keeps the board sturdy like you need.  Also when attaching your hinges make sure you are able to have it open at an angle or it won’t work that well. I marked and predrilled the hole then put in the nut and bolts to attach the hinges to the board. Make sure you put your hinges on right too. I kept testing mine so they would fold in nice when you put it up.

Adding mesh

I added mesh to the circle so when you throw something into it, you don’t lose it behind the board somewhere. Plus if you have ever been camping by a hill you know that things tend to go down the hill and I don’t want to keep climbing up and down like crazy. You will take the laundry mesh bag and cut it in half. Sew the  end shut on the one peice

You will take the laundry mesh bag and cut it in half. Sew the  end shut on the one peice

Take the staple gun and staple the edge of the mesh as I went on the wider mesh bags I folded and stapled so it would fit. I’m not a perfectionist on these types of things so if you wanted you could make the bag to fit well and you wouldn’t have to fold it as you staple.

Decorating your boards

I added fake grass to my boards I bought a big thing of fake grass the type you can take camping and put out.  You could also spray paint it, paint it, sticker it, tape it, etc to make it your own. If you used fake grass cut it out before you add the mesh. I cut it to fit the board then lay it on top of the board and cut it out with a razor blade box cutter.

Adding the fake grass I cut out and nail glued it to the board I also stapled it to the board

Adding Velcro

You might want to add velcro to keep your sides from falling one way or the other when carrying it.  I added my velcro to the back of the pieces and back of the board. I used a fatter piece and cut it down the middle.

Making your Bean  Bags

Take a piece of fabric and cut out squares I cut out 6 in by 6 in squares. I cut out 6 total. I used Batman fabric for all of my bags. You may want to do 3 of one color and 3 of another color. I know my boys wouldn’t be happy if one was Batman and one was a plain color since I don’t have other cute fabric 🙂

After you have the squares cut out you will sew it inside out all around the edges except a little bit.

Now you will want to flip it inside out so the right side is out. then fill it halfway full with beans.

Fold in the edges of the open part and sew shut.

How We Play Golf Chip Game 

So the golf chip game you will lay the board down and pop it up on one side. This is where you can switch it up and pop up either side to make it more or less difficult. You can make up your own points if you want. We do 5 points for the small ones and 3 points for the big one up to 25 points.


How We Play Bean Bag Game

Prop up one end of the board just like the golf game. Take 4 bean bags per person taking turns the first to 50 points wins! 3 points for big one hole and 5 points for small holes. you could also prop up the board with both sides up and toss it in that way too. This goes for the golf game too.

How We Play Football Toss Game

Take the board and set it on its side with both ends holding it up. We use a table to put the board on then toss the football into the holes. I would use a smaller football to toss. We did our points as 100 for the large hole and 300 points for the small holes. The first one to 1000 wins. My boys love throwing balls so this game was so fun for them.

Chalk Bombs Make Your Own

Make your own Chalk Bombs

So I am so excited to share with you how to make your own Chalk bombs. So my friend got these cute little chalk bombs from the store. I thought they were neat but the outside color of the bomb easily got lost in the tall mountain grass and they were sold out pretty fast at the store. I don’t know if they came in any other colors but green, yellow, and purple either. So I decided we could make these and it would be pretty cool we could choose the colors we wanted and make the outside bag more findable.  So off the store, I went to get the supplies. Below are the things I bought for the project.

Making Your own Chalk Bombs

Cut out Square Pieces  of Fabric

I took the white porous fabric( t-shirt type fabric see-through) we bought and cut out a  8 -inch by 8-inch piece. Once these were cut we could move to the next step.

Grate The Chalk

This is something a mommy or daddy will want to do. I would be worried a child might cut their fingers grating. Grate the chalk and put it in bowls for the next steps this can take a while to do. My little helper watching by my side as I did this. Another way you could do this is put the chalk in a plastic bag and take outside and hammer it till it’s all powdered.

Another way you could powder the chalk is put the chalk in a plastic bag, take outside and hammer it till it’s all powdered.


Cut Nylon String

Cut some of your nylon string into 5-inch strips this will be used to make your bomb easier to throw.

Now You Can Assemble The Chalk Bomb

Take a square of fabric and scoop the grated chalk on to it. Place one of the nylon strings in it.  Now you can grab the edges of the fabric and make it into a ball. You will want to take the zip tie and tie around the top of it to close it. If you want you can add some more nylon string to the top to cover the zip tie.

Play With Your Chalk Bomb

So this, of course, is an outside toy.  It’s messy but fun! Take your chalk bombs outside and started playing with it. You will get circle chalk marks on your clothes it easily wipes off. If your kids wear a white shirt it makes it a little more fun cause you will really see the colors on your shirt. You can also color bomb the sidewalk too. These provide hours of fun for my active boys. I hope you enjoy them too!

Tip: If your chalk bomb gets wet to take a hammer and loosen it all up after its dry.

DIY-Easy Shiplap Style Wall

Hi! So I have this wall at the end of my stairs and I never knew what to do with it. I have always loved the look of shiplap/planked walls and wanted to do a few in my house but not go crazy. Last year I bought a bunch of used wood boards thinking I would do a shiplap wall in my living room but after measuring I was short by about 10 boards. To give the texture and love to my basement wall I decided it would be a good area for a shiplap wall. Here is how I installed the shiplap style wall.

This post contains affiliate links for your convenience. For more details on affiliate links please see my disclosure.

Steps to the Shiplap Style Wall

Step One

Sand all the boards. I only sanded the one side doing both sides would have taken a long time and would have been a waste of time to sand both sides. Just make sure when you put it on the wall that you put the sanded side out towards you.  In addition, sanding helps so there is not as my children say pokey things. It will also help put a smooth coat of paint on if that’s what you want to do.

Note: If your boards have footprints, marker, etc on them sand it down until the marks are gone.


If you are looking to stain the boards you will want to do that before step two. Once the boards are on the wall it will be impossible to stain.

Step Two

Level the bottom

So I took the boards and made sure they would fit ok and as seamless as possible. Where there is a step in the middle of the wall I had to make sure the next boards would fit straight across not overlap or any gaps. So I have I added a little space in between the first boards and the baseboard. Use a level to make sure the bottom boards are level so the rest will be too 🙂

Nail Gun Greatness

Nailing the boards down I took my 18 gauge nail gun to nail them down. I love my nail gun it’s so nice it’s all in one no needing a compressor to make your gun work. Plus with all the safety features it has I feel my kids can’t just pick it up and hurt someone. It does have a tendency to get sticky and you have to clean it but it could just be the brand of nails I am using.If you would like a nail gun like mine here is the link.


Stagger the boards

I nailed the boards going in one direction and cut the end pieces using my miter saw.  The next row I put the boards going on in the other direction basically, you are doing a zigzag on the wall so it creates a staggard effect. Don’t forget to put pennies in between the boards to create a little space.

Here is a picture show you the directions I went. Its in the back and forth all the way to the top

Step Three

Once you have the boards on in your shiplap style you can paint them. I did a white wash paint on my boards. To get this effect you will take your paint and add water to it then brush it on the boards.  You will need a 50/50 water-paint mixture to do a whitewash.You can use as little or as much paint as you want if 50/50 is too much or too little. Wanting to have the grains in the board and the imperfections stick out, I stuck with the 50/50 mixture. You could also stain your boards before you hang them. I have seen a lot of different styles but you pick what suits you best.

Note: With so much water in the paint mixture it’s runny you may want to put down some plastic. I made a mess on my hands, clothes etc. I did have a rag to clean it up which is smart to do when you are painting anyway. Also, keep an eye on places that drip it will have drip spots.

Finished look 

Here is the finished wall with the white wash. Sorry! this picture isn’t the most bright.

Step Four

Style it!

Grab some cute decor or tables to style your shiplap style wall. Here is some cute decor I found at wayfair.com. Now I just need to b

Dog Bed Made From Old Pillows

DIY Dog Bed

Have you ever wondered what to do with your old pillows? Even after washing them they have the life sucked out of them. I always hate throwing these things away. My dog recently tore apart her bed so was sleeping on dirty clothes in the laundry room poor puppy! After buying new pillows last week I decided we could use the old pillows and make her a new bed.

I had a lot of pink camo fabric from a project I had never done. So I thought why not use this for the dog bed. So I cut out two pieces at 52 inches long and as wide as the fabric. I may have gone a little too big! OOPS. After I had filled it with pillow filling my children exclaimed: “that’s like a big bean bag for the dog holy cow!”

This is a simple Dog bed I promise 🙂

Things you will need

  • Cute fabric
  • Thread
  • Old Clean Pillows

Making Your Dog Bed from Old Pillows

Step One

Take your desired fabric and cut it out to desired length and width. Just make sure you cut out two pieces. I seriously cut ours out so big at 52 inches long. I would maybe do yours a little shorter like 30 or 40 ish inches long for a big dog.

At 52 inches long you could make it like a bean bag and let your kids use it they would be happy about that.

Step Two 

Sew around the edges with the cute side facing in. I sewed in a zig zag to help keep it better togeather. Make sure you leave an opening for the stuffing I left almost 10 inches on the one end.

Step Three

Turn inside out so the cute side is now on the outside.

Step Four

Start stuffing it. I cut the pillow cover and took out the stuffing and put it inside the cover. Make sure you wash the pillows first so you start with clean stuffing. You can also add sawdust into the bed. Most dog beds have sawdust in them.


Step Five

Sew the opening shut.

ENJOY Your dog bed or child bag 🙂 

So my dog wouldn’t look at me to take her picture on the bed. She’s old and grouchy 🙂 the bed is a little lumpy but I expect it to flatten out as the stuffing settles.



DIY- Darth Vader Mask- Instructions Included

Rogue One is being released soon. Time to build your fun Darth Vader Mask!

My son and I are excited to go to the movie wearing our masks.

Please note these masks aren’t super sturdy it is only paper foam. This is also my own design if you use my idea please give me credit 🙂

Also if your face is longer or wider you will need to adjust the pattern by adding some length or width to the pieces. My head is a child’s size large in hats to give you an idea of how the mask fits 🙂

Things Needed for the project.

This contains affiliate links see disclosure for more info.

First step

Cut out the pattern for the project or as you are working on it. I tried to label them appropriately so hopefully you understand. You may have to adjust some of the pieces as you go. This pattern is ment to fit a small face.  Here is the link to the PDF pattern DarthVader Mask Pattern

Watch my video for more details on the steps-Note its in two videos and it is my first video ever for youtube so please be kind!

Second Step

Get hot gluing!

Be Careful not to burn your fingers with the hot glue, I may have burned mine a few times.

I started with the face triangle part and built from there. You may want to try it on as you go and adjust for your face.

Third step

Build your helmet next it’s in video 2. I kept trying mine on to make sure it fit right.  In my pattern, I did a short one for children and a longer one for adults. This picture below is of my youngest wearing the shorter one. I did take off a little length from the back he kept knocking it off. My boys love playing dress up so this is just another fun piece to their collection.



Fourth step

Once you have it all glued and togeather you can go around the seams with electrical tape to hide the hot glue seams. Unless you are amazing or don’t care at the hot glue seams then you wouldn’t need to do this step. I wanted mine to look as black and polished as possible.


Fifth step

Now you can attach your hood to the mask. You can hot glue it on or you can use velcro. I used velcro so I could wear the hood separate if I wanted to.

Whats This? Make Your Own Life Size Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Skellington

What’s this theirs magic in the air! What’s this build your own Jack Skellington! At our house we love The Nightmare Before Christmas, Jack Skellington is our favorite character. I wanted to share it with everyone. My hope is to have a few charters from the Nightmare Before Christmas throughout our Halloween decorations. In the future I would like to make Oogie boogie, Sally, zero etc. This project is very time-consuming. It took me a few months to work on it spreading it out over the weekends mainly. You could finish it maybe in a few days if you have the time to dedicate to it. I would estimate I spent close to $100 to make him.

Here is the DIY on each thing  to make the full Jack Skellington.

Jack’s Head

live size jack skellington nightmare before christmasTo start the project I started working on the pumpkin kings head, it’s made of paper mache, paper paste, spray paint, acrylic paint, wall joint compound, and PVC pipe

I used a punching balloon for the base. A 20-inch beach ball might work better to make his head. With the balloon or beach ball inflated start covering it with your newspaper cut into strips 1-2 inch strips wide and 5-8 inches long. Use this mixture Elmer’s glue 1/2 cup to 1/2 cup of water ratio to cover the strips in. dip a paintbrush in the mixture, painting some glue onto the balloon stick the strip down and then painted the strip on. Cover the whole thing until the balloon or beach ball is no longer showing. Repeat this process 2-3 times so you have a total of 3-4 layers. I allowed each layer to dry before adding the next layer.

Cut eye holes and mouth

Once it’s all dry you will want to cut the holes for the eyes and nose also mark the mouth. What I did was draw on the eyes nose and mouth with a pencil until it was where I wanted it. Then I took a kitchen knife to cut out the eyes and nose holes, this did break the balloon in the middle. I then carefully pulled all the balloon pieces from my eye holes.

This picture is my first attempt at the face but it’s the only pic I had of the newspaper part. The next step you will need to take strips of newspaper dipped in the paste to make the eye sockets you lay it across the eye and let it slide to the depth you want. Then fill it in until the hole is no longer a hole.

Next step is to fill the whole outside and eye sockets with paper paste this makes it stronger and more filled out for details. I used the following recipe for the paste.

1 Roll of inexpensive toilet paper. Do not use Costco or an expensive brand it doesn’t break down as well
2 tbs of Mineral Oil (baby oil)
1 cup of regular, all-purpose joint compound
3/4 cup of flour
3/4 cup of Paper Mache Paste Source





Paper clay

Take the paper clay and start placing it all over the head. I put it fairly thin on the whole head. Around the eyes, nose and mouth I built it up to and edge to help bring out the features more. On the mouth, I left the line in the middle open and just built up around the line.


At this point, you can add the pipe or an attachment piece. If you do the pipe you connect the head directly onto the shoulders. If you do the attachment piece you would attach it to a neck

Cut Teeth

Once this is all dry take a Dremel tool and cut out the slits for the teeth. Then take sanding paper or a sander and sand it down I used 220 grit piece. The paper clay I had was pretty lumpy you might be able to get yours less lumpy then I did when you make the paper clay. Once I had it all sanded down I took the joint compound and filled in all the holes and lumps etc. I had to make it more smooth it was bugging me. Sanded it to get it more smooth using the joint compound. Make sure it’s dry before you sand. This picture below is before I filled it in with joint compound

After it is all smooth to your liking take something to wipe the excess powder off with a towel, compressor hose, etc will do the trick. Now you can add spray paint it I used Rust-Oleum white. After it is coated well and dried you can take your black acrylic paint and paint in the black for the eyes, nose, and mouth.

The last step for the head seal it with clear spray paint.

Jack’s Bones

You may want to make yours a little shorter or different. Currently, I have mine leaning against the wall till I find a better solution. When I find one I will update this post.

I took the current lengths and put them together.1 inch PVC pipe cut to shoulder to elbow 13 inches, elbow to hand 14 inches, the neck is 5 inches, shoulders and hips are cut to 3 1/2 inches each, middle body 23 Inches, thighs 15 inches, knee to foot 13 inches.

Start with a board for the base with floor flanges attached. To get the distance of where I needed the floor flanges I put his legs and hips together then drilled the flanges onto the board.

4 90 degree connectors, 4 45 degree connectors (you could do two more to adjust arms differently), 4 connector piece, 3 connector piece




Jack’s Shoes

You will want to build shoes for him. I took a box of soda cut it up and made it look like shoes by taped it with masking tape, then I added some paper clay, and spray painted it black I used Rust-Oleum black spray paint.

Leave holes so the PVC pipe can fit in it.



Jack’s Clothes

After you put it all together put the white shirt on it then stuff it with filling. Sew the bottom and leave a hole for the PVC pipe to fit. I used safety pins to hold the top part together you could sew this too I find it easier to adjust things when I need to just have safety pins.


Fit the jacket

Take a thrift store cotton sports jacket and fitted it to the arms. I added black fabric to lengthen it( his arms are really long) and add tails. The picture with my son shows how long the arms are, they reach his feet.




Next, I took black yoga pants and I fitted them to the legs. After you’ve got it to where its all fitted you can start painting the puffy paint stripes on it to turn it into the black pin-striped suit. The white stripes are made from white and glow in the dark puffy paint together to give it an extra pow. It ended up taking 2 white and 1 glow in the dark paint to get it all stripped. I took the paint and mixed it all then poured it back in the bottles. Lay the clothes on a table and started painting the stripes on. Let it dry overnight before turning it over to add it to the back side.20150903_175621

Now you can dress him I added filling to the crotch part of the pants to make it more filled.




Jack’ s Hands

I took wire put a 12mm spray painted black bead on the end. If you can find black beads it’s better to use them then to spray painting some. Next, I molded air dry clay for the white parts on the hand and strung on the beads as I went. Once I had created the fingers I used duct tape and taped the wires together. Then I filled the top and bottom with air dry clay. The wires stuck out the back so then I attached it to a PVC coupling (one where you can connect two pipes), taping the wire and hand to it then added it to the arm. Make sure you use black tape it helps hide it better.

Bat Tie

I drew on the foam paper in pencil then cut it out. It took 3 foam pages to make this tie, 2 pages for the wings and 1 for the bat head.jack skellington bat wing tie

Bat face

  • Cut out the shape then take the edges and cut slits in it and glue it together to make it more 3D.
  • Then take 2 flat pieces to cover the face and make it more smooth if you don’t do this then it doesn’t look as nice.
  • Next, draw the lines and eyes with the white puffy paint.

Back of Bat

  • On the back, I laid out the wire and Put the duct tape over it to hold it on.
  • Add the elastic band onto the bat. I hot glued it to the back of the bat head.
  • Now you can add it around his neck and bend the wires on the back.



The Total Look

Christmas Outfit

life size christmas jack skellington

I used 3 yards of red fleece fabric I think it might have been too much so I do have extra. I took the Halloween pants and cut out the red fabric the same length and width, I did this with the jacket too.  This way the legs and arms were to the correct length. Then added the white fluffy fabric around the neck hole, the base of pants, hat trim, nd beard. The white fluffy fur fabric is impossible to cut without getting the fluffy part all over so keep that in mind when cutting.

To make the boots I added black fabric around the bottom of the pants and used his shoes as the base.

For the hat, I measured his head and cut out the red fleece to fit. I double checked with the fabric around the head to make sure I cut it right. once Then I sewed the fabric and added the white fluffy fabric to the edge and a ball for the other end
