There are tons of products in the new Martha Stewart paint line. So many that you may not be sure what to do with all of them. No worries, we are here to help you, and give you tons of craft inspiration. One of the most talked about new products is the spray paint kit. We recently offered this item in a giveaway last week. If you would like to try the spray paint kit out on something, but are not sure what, why not use it to create this Halloween centerpiece? No Halloween party or event would be complete without a charming and ghoulish Halloween tree centerpiece. Using Martha Stewart Crafts Spray Paint Kit makes painting tree limbs a snap!

It’s still winter in so many parts of the world, but my mind is already moving towards spring and summer projects. I was surfing the other day for some cool ideas and found this whimsical painted fruit by Sara at Creative Jewish Mom. Sara says it will “make them smile” and it definitely did me! It’s such a fun litttle basket, and you can freestyle it – no professional skills required. Go here for the full entry and to see what Sara used to make the fruit.
Tip - The fruit is actually Styrofoam! Our best paint for Styrofoam is Apple Barrel. It gives great coverage.

I don’t know how you feel, but Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to use glitter. Nothing says “I love you” better than a little bling! I like table centerpieces for holidays, and I really like this glittery heart centerpiece by Plaid designer Sherrie Ragsdale. All the red on the project has been enhanced with FolkArt Extreme Glitter, and it looks so pretty in person. Extreme Glitter is non-toxic (like all Plaid paints), so the kids can even help you with this one. Find the complete project instructions here.
