Three Tier Tray

This is a super simple and CHEAP way to create a 3 tier tray!  You get to choose what color  you want it to be to match your decor to boot.  I hope you are staying safe, Healthy and HAPPY!

First of all, I cleaned off my crafting area. The next step is to gather all of my supplies.  I made 2 trays, in 2 different colors, so I got my round cake pans, stove burners, candlesticks, paint, and E6000.  Then I took the biggest burner and used that on the bottom, I attached that to the bottom of the cake pan with E6000, then I attached the smaller burner cover to the cake pan with a candle holder between each one.  I let this dry a full day.  Then I went in and painted both the color I wanted them to be.  It’s important to use chalk paint here, as if you use anything else it most likely won’t adhere.  I had to use 2 coats of paint (letting the 1st coat dry fully before applying the 2nd coat).  After that dried, I took a paint brush and added the black around the rims of the pans.  That really is all there is to it, it’s super cheap, and a simple process.  Enjoy!

Felt Roses – Lifelike!

This craft, admittedly, took me a while to complete, but was so worth it!  This craft takes very little money to make, but a fair amount of time.  I hope you are all staying safe, Healthy and HAPPY!

First of all I cleaned off my craft area. Then I gathered all of my supplies.  I used a piece of cardboard, cheap felt, scissors, glue gun, needle and thread, and something to mark on the felt.  I started off by making a circle out of my cardboard.   I used a large paint bottle (about 4.5 cm), and just traced around it.  Then I cut that out.  This was my template.  Then I traced 9 circles on the felt.  After you cut these circles out, you will then cut each circle in 1/2.  After that, I made a chain with the 1/2 circles by sewing them together laying them on top of each other one by one along the flat side of the halves.  When you get to the end, you pull the thread just slightly until the felt makes a small circle formation.  Then tie off the end.  I then took a hot glue gun, and started rolling the middle, gluing along the flat end to hold it in place as you go.  The middle will be rolled pretty tight, then just glue normally as you go outward.  When you get to the end, just glue it together, and there is the rose!  I finished mine off with a small pearl in the middle on top.  This is a VERY cheap craft, and makes such a beautiful rose in the end.

Mandala Pendant

This craft can be tedious for some, but I find a lot of enjoyment in doing these mandala’s.  They are very repetitive, but the final product is just so beautiful.  I hope everyone is staying safe, Healthy and HAPPY!

First of all, I cleaned off my craft area. Then I gathered my supplies.  I got my pendant, paints, my stencil template, white chalk pencil and dotting tools. Then I started by painting the base color. (I started by painting mine black first, but changed my mind, and went with metallic blue) Then after that is dry, I put my stencil on it centered, and then used my white chalk pencil and created the lines to make it easier to keep the dots even.  Then I started with a dot in the middle, then worked my way out from the middle with varied sized dots and colors.  After this was dry, on some of the dots, I added an additional dot on top for dimension.  That is really all there is to this craft!  I’ve done several things with this, and really adore them.
