Good morning! This past weekend we were trying to find a movie to watch, and we stumbled across the movie, Miracles From Heaven. Oh my goodness! Miracles from Heaven is such a good movie! Go get it now! We watched it 3 times over the weekend! It’s full of love, family, faith & a wonderful spirit. You will be touched when you watch! The movie is based on the true story of the Beam family. One of their daughters is diagnosed with a terrible disease, but along the way through big & small miracles this family is helped through their trial. Watching this movie made me want to hug & spend time with my kiddos even more! This week my daughter & I were inspired by the movie to make this adorable Hand Stamped Necklace together. Let’s get started! :)

Before we get to that tutorial. Let me talk about my kiddos! This movie will definitely make you so, so grateful for those little people that call you mom! You’ll hug & squeeze them all a little tighter. Spending time together is so very important for kids. I love teaching my kiddos how to make something, going on trips, reading together, having a movie night together & hiking & being outdoors together. Doing all of these family activities really bond us together as a family. They are all great times to talk & catch up on what is important to my kiddos. Of course, each of my kids are different, so what works with one doesn’t always work with the other! For example, my son loves to throw around the football. I’m getting pretty good at it, too! ha! Some of my kiddos have similar interest as me. This is my daughter, Cara. The way we bond & spend time together is by crafting! Can’t you tell? These are just some of the projects we’ve worked on together for the blog! She’s even been a guest blogger here! ;) You’ll have to search “crafts by Cara” to see what she shared. A funny story about Cara is that she always like to sneak in & use my craft supplies! The only bad thing is that she never puts them back in the right place, so I know she’s been digging in my stash! haha! I secretly don’t mind though! :)

crafts with my daughter

In Miracles from Heaven, the Beam family is one of those families that have that strong bond as a family. Christy Beam really fights hard for her daughter once she is ill, & she struggles with her faith as she watches her daughter go through so much suffering. At the end of the movie as she looks back she realizes that miracles had been happening all along. She just didn’t see them. I loved watching her faith evolve over the film. I also loved how her daughter, Annabel, had perfect faith through the whole movie. Faith & wanting to spend some more time bonding with my daughter is what inspired this craft. (FYI: The butterfly also comes from the movie, but I don’t want to give too much away!)

First, you will place your metal stamp over the spot you want your letter to be.

hammering metal

Give it 3 or 4 hard hits with the hammer. Repeat for each letter.

crafts for girls

When you’re finished go over the letters with a permanent marker, and rub off the excess with a baby wipe or wet napkin. This will make your letters stand out more.
