Here are some Christmas stocking tags that can be used year after year. The materials needed for this Holiday project are: preformed wooden tags(or if you are real crafty, you can cut your own design out of Balsa Wood), names printed out on regular paper, craft paint, paint brush, decal applicator, razor knife, and Mod Podge.
This is another version of the photo blocks but on a larger scale…
Materials needed for this project are 2 X 8’s (cut in 9 1/2 inch lengths), 8 X 10 photos printed on standard paper, craft paint, paint brush, decal applicator, fine grit sand paper, picture hangers, and Mod podge.
I hope this is another project that you will enjoy doing!
Here is another craft that I really enjoyed doing…
Materials needed for this craft is 3 inch wooden blocks(bought from a local craft store), scrapbook paper, personal photos printed on normal paper, craft paint, paint brush, decal applicator, and Mod Podge.
I hope you enjoy this craft as much as I did!
These were fun to design and make and extremely easy to do! Just gather together some old or new Christmas ornaments(without any metal attachments), mini figurines, and bottle brush trees or anything thing that you can imagine as long as it is waterproof and can be glued in the confines of the interior diameter of the jar lid. Next get a Mason, Ball, or even an empty jar out of the fridge and its lid. Other materials needed are a glycerin, glue gun with plenty of glue sticks, glitter, clear & white silicone in a tube, a glass candle stick holder( I found mine at the local dollar store), purified water, ribbon, bells, and any other type of embellishments.
This can be made for all different kinds of occasions just by changing what you put inside the jar. Have fun and enjoy!
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! Enjoy this day, take time to embrace family & friends and be blessed with good memories of days past!
A primitive candle just like in the colonial times…well not quite but a little close. I was given a bunch of those battery operated window candles that have the gold colored plastic candle stick base with the white molded drippy look plastic candle and the light bulb on top. I am not one to look a gift horse in the mouth so to speak but these weren’t exactly the type of decor that I have in my home, but I accepted them graciously and appreciated the thought behind the gift because my home is filled with candles. It didn’t take me to long before I decided to use a grunging technique that I have used on my hand sewn fabric candle ornies. So I set out on my prim candle transformation and gathered my cinnamon, Mod Podge, and a can of black spray paint(Automotive Trim Black is what I used due to the color is close to Lamp Black). Now, I will say that this was a spur of the moment project and I forgot to take photos through out the project, I just have a photo of the finished product but I will give step by step instructions on how I did this-
1) Take a scotch brite pad and scuff up the candle stick base part only, wipe off scuff dust
2) Tape off the white candle part and bulb completely, so no black spray will get on it
3) Spray candle stick base black, let dry completely
4) Un-tape the candle part and bulb
5) With a paint brush, brush on Mod Podge completely over the white candle part, making sure the white is completely covered and being careful not to get any Mod Podge on any of the black base or the bulb
6) Once covered with Mod Podge, immediately dust cinnamon completely over the wet Mod Podge, carefully blow or tap off excess cinnamon and let dry completely
7) When cinnamoned Mod Podge is dried brush another coat of Mod Podge over all of cinnamon(some cinnamon will mix in the Mod Podge but that is okay). Make sure all of the cinnamon is coated with Mod Podge and looks wet, again make sure that none of the Mod Podge gets on the black base or bulb
8) Once they are dried, you can leave them as is or go one step further and silicone the bulbs
My not so primitive…primitive candle!
Have a Happy Halloween everyone. Watch out for the Goblins and Ghouls and the occasional princess! Enjoy!
