With the holidays just around the corner, I can’t help but think about fun crafts for the kiddos. Of course, this could be due to the fact that I have five children moving about the house that are always making something. The “something” doesn’t always make it to the mantel, if you know what I mean. It might be a hot-glued red fur ball with one eyeball, or some sort of slimy-but-not -sure-why pipe cleaner contraption.
Here are twelve drop-dead gorgeous DIY projects that will all but guarantee mantel-status for the kids this year. Happy crafting!

Hi! It’s Chris Williams, Plaid Designer. Here is a craft project that not only is fun, but can be enjoyed at Easter time as well as year round! Who doesn’t love fun furry lambs and checkerboards? This is a great project for beginners and so easy to do. Now let’s get started gathering supplies including FolkArt Acrylics, buttons, glue, a few paint brushes, a lamb wood cut out and a $1.00 frame!
Plaid designer Chris Williams adds fun and whimsy to your Easter table with her cute chick placecard holders. You can whip up several of these at once, use them for placecards and then give everyone their own unique gift to take home! Here’s the complete tutorial from Chris herself.
No Easter Sunday dinner table would be complete without “chickie” place card holders, right? Why not dress up your Easter dinner table with this idea? It is fun and easy to do. First gather your basic crafting supplies and add a few FolkArt Acrylic colors too.
A big welcome to Plaid designer Chris Williams – you’re going to love her Easter basket and eggs!
Ok, so this is my first offcial post on Paint Me Plaid. When Amy asked me to help her create a fun Easter basket with eggs, I was up for the challenge! Immediately I located a cute wood box/planter, some paper mache eggs, colorful beads, some ribbon that became my inspiration, wire, my normal painting supplies and of course a colorful palette of FolkArt Acrylics. Here is my supply list:
If you’re planning to cook a romantic dinner for your sweetie, may I make a suggestion? Why not paint some fun and pretty Valentine’s Day glasses with FolkArt Enamels! I’m always looking for original Valentine’s Day painted projects, and honestly, they are really hard to find. These wine glasses totally fit the bill. They also might be fun for a girls’ night out. Find the complete project instructions here.
How do you dress up simple wood letters and make them fantastic? You need to pay a visit to the Craft-O-Maniac, because she recently painted these “XO XO” letters and they now make the perfect Valentine’s decor! She actually painted a basecoat of one color, rubbed on paint of a contrasting color and then wiped it off. This is a great strategy for adding interest to a project – when simple painting in one color just won’t do the trick. Another great idea for these letters is the white polka dots in various sizes. Visit the Craft-O-Maniac’s blog entry here. What could you paint with these simple techniques?
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.
