Candles are an all year round kind of item. They can be used to set the tone in a room, or they can serve as a nice accent piece. Within the DIY world a popular trend springing up are decorated candle holders. People are painting, mod podging, and glittering all sized candle holders. We here at Plaid wanted to get in on this trend, so Trenice Bishop, a talented freelance designer created these spring candle holders. This is such an easy project to make that will only take up to 1 hour to complete. In this project Trenice used several supplies including Mod Podge. All the supplies needed for this project can be found below, along with their instructions.
Mother’s Day is right around the corner. Are you ready? Don’t fret if you have not yet decided on a gift, we have plenty of ideas for you to choose from. One idea that would make a great gift is these Mom Wood Blocks. Trenice Bishop created these lovely blocks. To achieve this look she used several FolkArt paints, Mod Podge, and Mod Podge photo transfer. This is an intermediate level craft project and will take about 2 hours to complete. Once complete give these blocks to your Mom, they are sure to put a smile on her face. A complete list of supplies along with their instructions can be found below.

Earlier this week, we here at Plaid got the chance to do something really fun. We had a lunch and learn event, featuring the new Martha Stewart Crafts ® Jewelry line. The Martha Stewart Crafts ® jewelry program takes jewelry making to a whole new level of sophistication, with innovative products and techniques that allows you to create your own unique fashion statement.
This broad line includes over 240 items tailored to every level of jewelry crafter: beautifully designed charms, pendants, and findings; rhinestones and exquisite Czech glass beads; and enameling paints, jewelry glazes, and epoxy clays.
T.G.I.F. It is the start of the weekend, and that means it is time to get crafting. The weekend is the best time for crafting DIY projects, and today we want to inspire you to make these easy DIY burlap utensil holders. To close out our weeklong celebration of Earth Day, we thought these burlap utensil holders would be a perfect ending. This is a great example of how you can take an item, and reinvent it into something amazing. Debbie from Debbiedoo’s created these burlap holders using Apple Barrel paints and FolkArt peel and stick stencils. To see step by step how Debbie created this project click here. We hope you have a craftastic weekend!

We’re thrilled to announce the perfect party dress on Paint Me Plaid. The Merry Maker will have your little girl twirling all summer long. To create this dress we used the FolkArt Handmade Charlotte party stencil along with the FolkArt Handmade Charlotte pattern stencil, to put the final touches on this lovely vintage inspired dress. The charming confetti collar, gold polka dots, and fun bunting really take the cake!
To continue our weeklong celebration of Earth Day, today we are sharing with you an eco friendly project. Check out these Monogram Pots. How cute are they? Not only are they cute, they make a great Mother’s Day present. Kim from The Celebration Shoppe had helped her little one make these pots. These pots were made using Mod Podge washout and Apple Barrel paints. After her son finished decorating the pots, he planted some flowers inside. What a perfect kid’s craft for them to make for Mother’s Day. Not only does this make a great Mother’s Day gift, but also it is an overall great spring craft. Click here to find all the supplies used to create this project, along with their instructions. Enjoy!
Since we’re celebrating Earth Day for the entire week, today we wanted to discuss the popular trend of upcycling. Similar to recycling, upcycling is a great way to reuse materials from around your home, and in the end it helps reduce your carbon footprint.
The trend of upcycling has seen a huge growth within the last few years. One reason this is happening is due to the large DIY niche. Many more people are looking around their homes and thrift stores, for items they can repurpose and add their own unique spin to.
