What better way to kick off spring with the family than a great DIY project? Here are a five fun crafts to try with the kids. Happy crafting!
Don’t you love St. Patrick’s Day? It’s almost here! It’s hard to think of craft ideas, but there are a few good ones – and we’re going to share one with you today. It’s also a great time to use BRIGHT GREEN glitter! We had Plaid designer Julie Lewis decorate a $1 leprechaun mask that we purchased from Jo-Ann Stores using Apple Barrel paint. Gotta love those dollar bins! This project is great for the young ones and even for adults! Your co-workers will love you if you jump out from your cubicle with this mask in front of your face. I promise it will be a big hit! Here’s how to make a mask of your very own.
Have you ever seen those giant foam mats that fit together like puzzle pieces? The ones for kids’ playrooms? Sarah from sarah.wandering. revamped hers with some acrylic paint, and it’s super cool! Are you suprised that acrylic paint worked? All you have to do is prime it, and you too can have a floor mat just like this one. You can seal it with our FolkArt vanish. Take a peek at the full blog entry here.
Have you tried FolkArt Extreme Glitter? If you haven’t, it does wonderous things, and it does them in many colors. Lil’ Blue Boo is a fabulous crafting blog, and Ashley recently used Rose Extreme Glitter to decorate her daughter’s shoes. The results are above, and as you can see, the shoes sparkle and shine beautifully. If you are getting ready to go back to school, consider a little pick-me-up for the kids’ wardrobe.
