You know there are more ways to spruce up frames than by just adding a photo to it. Frames are one of the most versatile craft surfaces to get creative with, and they make a great gift to give. This Mother’s Day why not spruce up a frame for your Mom.
Hello all you creative crafters. Welcome to the first day of May. We are super excited today to share with you a wonderful project we recently stumbled across. Currently many of you are crafting or preparing to craft for Mother’s Day, and in case you are still a little stumped on what you want to create this year let us suggest making these heart thumbprint charm necklaces.
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!
Are you or your kids a messy crafter? Come on be honest. If you are know that it’s perfectly normal to be a little messy, while you are being crafty. It kind of goes with the territory, but lucky for you we here at Plaid create products with our consumer in mind.
Looking to make a craft project that welcomes spring? Well we have just the thing, check out this DIY Angry Birds Birdhouse. Unless you have been living under a rock, you have heard about Angry Birds. Regardless of your age, people young and old love Angry Birds. They have become a staple symbol in recent pop culture. Not only are they popping up in the media, they are popping up in the craft world. Molly from Just a little Creativity created this project with her kids. How cute is this? Molly made this birdhouse using Apple Barrel paints and Mod Podge washout. For those of you new to this Mod Podge washout formula, it is very similar to the regular Mod Podge. The biggest difference is that this formula will wash out easily from clothing and furniture. This is the perfect formula to use when crafting with kids. The complete step-by-step instructions, and full supply list for this project can be found here.
Are you in the midst of a design redo? This time of year in addition to the traditional spring-cleaning, many people are also re-designing rooms in their homes. This is exactly what Kathleen from the craft blog Grosgrain has been up to. She recently decided to spruce up her nursery by jazzing up her diaper pail. This pail was pretty ordinary, and honestly just looked like your average trash can, but after using the new FolkArt Handmade Charlotte stencils she transformed it completely. This pail is awesome. Who knew a little chevron could make such an impression. To see how you can recreate this project for your room click here. What room or item in your home are you planning to redesign this spring?
