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.

Merry Christmas Truck

This little sign is just so cute!  It’s also extremely simple.  Pretty much all you need are the embellishments and some chalk paint and hot glue. As always, I hope you’re 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 brownie pan (try to not get the non-stick kind, the paint wants to peel), white chalk paint, a little red truck with tree ornament, ribbon, some scrapbook paper, miniature trees, ribbon, wooden letters, gold gilding gel, E6000, hot glue gun, and embellishments. First I put on 2 coats of white chalk paint around all the sides and top of the pan.  I didn’t need to put it in the very middle because I was going to cover that with scrapbook paper anyway.  Then I put the paper in the pan upside down to trace the size to cut out.  Then I cut it out, cutting in just a tiny bit to make sure it fit in the bottom.  Then I attached it with E6000, and tacked the corners with hot glue to keep it in place.  Then I hot glued a small jenga block to the back of my truck ornament and then placed it on the lower left side of the pan with hot glue.  Then I took miniature trees and staggered them on the right side by hot gluing them to the bottom of the pan.  Then I added the bow on top, and Christmas tree lining around the outer edges with hot glue.  Then I painted my wooden letters white, and then used gold gilding gel and lightly used my finger to rub around the edges of the letters to make them pop  a little bit.  I placed them where I thought it would look good, then I hot glued them down as well. Finally I added some holly berries on the corners, and ribbon on the back to hang it.  If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me anytime!

Blue and White decoupaged Pumpkins

I actually think these are my favorite craft that I’ve created to date.  I adore the look of these. They are classic, and beautiful with so many decors.  I scoured around and found the blue and white napkins at various different places!  I hope you all stay safe, Healthy and HAPPY!

First of all, I cleaned off my craft area. Then I gathered all of my supplies.  I had 3 foam pumpkins from Dollar Tree, but you can purchase them anywhere pretty cheap.  I also used some acrylic paint, white chalk paint, Model Magic, my blue napkins and decoupage.  I used some ribbon to embellish them as well.  The first step was to remove my stems, then paint the pumpkins white with chalk paint (I used 2 coats).  It’s important you use chalk paint to make sure it adheres to the pumpkin and doesn’t peel off.  Then I created my stems.  I used a little bit of model magic and rolled it into a good size ball, then I cut that in 1/2.  After that I just molded the clay around the green stem and made them the way I wanted them to look. I then painted those with the chalk paint as well.  I used 2 coats.  I used the tooth picks to push them into something that would keep them up straight.  I let these dry overnight so the clay was hardened.  Then I painted each stem the color I wanted.  I used metallic silver and metallic blue.  Then you choose what napkins you want to use, and peel them apart until you only have the very top pretty layer left. Next, I put some decoupage into a Styrofoam bowl and used a paintbrush to cover the pumpkins one small section at a time and applied the napkins. I did this by cutting the napkins into sections that I wanted to use all around the pumpkin.  You may have to use decoupage at the very end to put on the pumpkins and use the paint brush to get the napkins to stay down on the pumpkins.  After this, I let these dry another day, and they were done.  I know the process takes a while, but to me it was worth it!

Merry Christmas Sign with Red Truck

This Christmas craft, was a very simple craft, and really is above cute!

First of all, I  cleaned off my lap table. Then I gathered all of my supplies.  I used a 5×7 frame, with some bumps on the inner part for some texture, white chalk paint, a Christmas ornament with a red truck, some scrapbook paper, mini ornaments, unstrung pearls and twine!  The first step was to paint the frame white.  You really need to use chalk paint here, to make sure it adheres.  You might also need 2 coats.  Once that is completely dry, I took a sanding block, and gently rubbed the edges where the bumps are on the frame, and randomly over the frame.  I then took the backing out, and traced around it on the scrapbook paper, then cut out the scrapbook paper and hot glued it to the cardboard.  Then I took my twine and put the ornaments and pearls on it, making sure to tie the ends off.  I then took that and draped it along the frame, hot gluing it where I wanted it to stay.  I attached my truck ornament to the backing with the scrapbook paper, and then put it back into the frame!  All done!

Blue Mandala Disk

These crafts take a good amount of time, but the final product is just so pretty. They really show so much creativity, and the end result is really satisfying.

First of all, I cleaned off my craft area.  Then I gathered all my materials.  I used a wooden disk, a stencil, chalk pencil, paints and paint brushes. First I painted the base color all over the top and sides.  Then once that was dry, I took the stencil and centered it.  I marked the lines with a chalk pencil. (That way you can just wipe them off when you finish) I start with a large dot in the middle and move outward with coordinating colors.  Varying in sizes in dots.  When I finished, and the paint was totally dry, I wiped off the remaining chalk lines with a baby wipe, but just a damp paper towel works too.  Some people like to coat it with mod podge to seal it.  I left mine as is. Enjoy!

Keurig Coffee Pod Holder

This is one craft that is a HUGE transformation from beginning to end!  I love this so much.  I intend on using this in my upcoming coffee nook to hold my Keurig Pod’s!  I wanna make a smaller version for tea bags soon.

First of all, I cleaned off my craft area.  Then I gathered all of my supplies.  I used a mesh trash can from Dollar Tree, a candy cane from Dollar tree, some zip ties, paint and embellishments! First, I completely unwrapped the candy cane to reveal just the plastic underneath.  The only part that I used was the top part where it curves, to make a “handle” for the cup.  I cut off the handle with heavy duty scissors. Then I took the trash can and used my hands to bend it into a “coffee cup” shape.  These baskets are pretty delicate, so go slow with this part.  After you’ve achieved the right shape, take zip ties and attach your plastic “handle” to the side where it looks right.  cut off the excess plastic on the zip ties, then paint the handle and zip ties black with chalk paint.  After this, I took a wooden tag, painted it black, then wrote “Coffee” in metallic marker.  I got some twine and attached it to the top!  I love how this turned out.  I know others have done a version of this, but I had to try it and share it!

Jenga Block Snowmen

I just adore this craft!  It’s very straight forward, and turns out simply adorable!  One of my best friends did this with he daughter after I gave her instructions as well, and it just was a super easy craft.  This is a perfect craft to give as a gift, or to decorate your own tree with! I love this one.

First I cleaned off my lap desk.  Then I took my wooden tags, and cut them to the size of a “brim of a hat” with a small little saw.  I made extra because they were so thin, that they broke pretty easy.  Then I gathered all my little jenga blocks and painted mine a cream color.  You can use any color you want your snowman, I just chose cream.  As those were drying, I started painting my brims of my hats.  You need to cut them before you paint them so the top and bottoms aren’t exposed.  After that, I took the hat “brims” and hot glued them on, at an angle.  After this, I painted above where I put the brim on, and where the hat would be around the snowman.  Then I took really small eye hooks, and screwed them into the top of the hats.  This was probably the hardest part of the craft.  I took a push pin too “pre-drill” a hole.  I took my checkered ribbon and cut it into strips.  I wrapped each strip around the snowman’s body, then I took a toothpick with black paint to make the eyes and buttons and mouth.  Then I took another toothpick to create the nose with orange paint.  I added glitter to mine by just putting a bit of modpodge on the front with a paint brush, then sprinkling it on.  I finished it off by taking twine, and attaching it to the eye hook as a hanger.  It is a really adorable effect!

Pine Cone Halloween Gnomes

These are super cheap and fun to make!  I made 24 of them for my daughter’s class to have for Halloween. They were a huge hit, and something they can save, if they want.

First of all, I cleaned off my craft area.  Then I gathered my supplies.  I used Halloween fabric, some polyfill, some various little Halloween embellishments, a lil wooden nose, some little pom poms, and of course the pinecone!  First I cut out the fabric in a way to where when I folded it together, it got smaller on the end. (Kind of a large triangle)  then I took my hot glue and after I folded the edges over I just glued it together.  Then before I put his hat on the pinecone (body), I stuffed it with some polyfill. After this, I put the hat on the pinecone, and pulled it down a bit all the way around.  I hot glued the sides and back on, but NOT the front yet.  After I put the nose under the hat where I wanted it, I glued it in place, then I glued the rest of the hat on the pinecone with hot glue.  After that I add various embellishments, like the pom poms at the bottom of the hat, and little pumpkins and bats and such!

Jenga Block Pumpkins

I know it’s been a while since I posted, but I really needed some time with my family, and Covid hit us pretty hard.  These are so simple and so adorable! These can be painted any color, so they can be used for Halloween or Thanksgiving or just Fall in general!  I painted some a cream color, and some pumpkin orange.  I put them on my 3 tier tray on display when I was finished with mine.

First I started with a clean area for my craft space, then I gathered all of my supplies. I used Jenga blocks that I purchased at Dollar Tree, but you can use any Jenga blocks you want.  I used the little square wooden blocks that Dollar tree sells for the stems.  I also used pumpkin colored paint, cream paint, and green for the stems.  I used floral wire and raffia for the finishing touches.  First I used hot glue put the blocks together.  If you want to make sure it is really secure, you might want to put some wood glue on as well.  After I got the “base” of the pumpkins made, I painted them orange.  Make sure you get all the nooks and crannies, top  and bottom.  I then painted the wooden squares green for the stems.  While those dried, I took my paint brush and just wrapped the floral wire around  the bottom of it to make the “stems” for the pumpkins.  I put the floral wire bottom of the stem inside the small hole. and secured it with hot glue, then I put the square green block on top for the stem with hot glue.  After this, I made a small bow with the raffia and secured that to the front with hot glue.  Then they were finished and SO adorable!
