TGIF! It’s Friday, and that means the weekend is here. The weekend is the best time to craft. In case you are looking for something to make, I wanted to share this Anthropologie Inspired House Number Plaque. This is a great project to create for your home; it is a great outdoor project. FolkArt outdoors paints, and Martha Stewart glitter paint was used to create this project. I love how colorful and fun this plaque is. You can definitely get as creative as you want. I discovered this project on a craft blog, called Hating Martha. Don’t be alarmed by the name, Janel the creator of the blog does not hate Martha. She actually loves her, but the name of her blog comes from the idea that she does not believe everything you create has to be or look perfect. It’s a fun blog with great craft projects, such as this one. To see how Janel made this house number plaque, click here.
Tomorrow on “The Martha Stewart Show” tune in to get prepared for Easter. They are having an egg-cellent celebration, and there will be tons of how to decorating ideas being shared. Learn how to create the project on the cover of Martha Stewart Living’s April issue. It’s pictured above, and was created using Mod Podge. Check your local listings to find out when “The Martha Stewart Show” will air in your area. You definitely will not want to miss this episode. Enjoy!
Guess who made the cover of the April Martha Stewart Living issue? Plaid’s very own Mod Podge! The cover project is of these fun and vibrant Easter eggs. The ones bounded with string included Mod Podge. This is a simple project, that can give your Easter eggs a crafty and creative look. You can find this project with more details on page 54, or click here.
So fun and so so simple. Enjoy creating this Easter Eggs.
There was also another great springtime craft project that included another Plaid product, these painted clipboards. Add some color to your traditional clipboard, with Martha Stewart craft paint. This project can be found on page 124.
Want to get your little girls involved and in the St. Patrick’s Day spirit? Well create this St. Patrick’s Day Ruffled Shirt. This shirt was created by Brook from, Being Brook. We first found this adorable project over on one of craft friend’s blog, Infarrantly Creative. Some of the supplies Brook used to make this included, t-shirt fabric, freezer paper, and Martha Stewart craft paints. This is a great shirt for your little one to wear on St. Patrick’s Day. Pair this long top with some jazzy leggings, and you will have one cute outfit.
Happy Friday . It is the weekend and we here at Paint Me Plaid would like to give you a craft project to work on. In every home there is a rug, and usually most rugs aren’t very decorative. A door mat, or bathroom mat typically aren’t you most chic looking rugs. Well that can change very quickly with a stencil, and some Martha Stewart craft paint. Here is a great example of how you can spruce up a boring rug. We found this rug on a blog called, Living with Lindsay. To see how she made this click here. Have you ever used craft paint on a rug or other household item?

I was thinking back to my own school days. About this time twenty-five years ago my mom and I would be working on my Valentine Box. You know the ones–they house all the little notes classmates give to one another. One year it was wrapped in red paper with conversation hearts glued on, another it looked like a mini mailbox. So fun! I was trying to think of a quick-to-make-Valentine box and this is what I came up with. It’s a retro clutch disguised as a Valentine holder!
Pick up clutches at the second hand store, then grab some embellishments, ribbons, Mod Podge, Extreme Glitter, Martha Stewart Glitter paints and paint brushes. You may need some Folk Art paint too.
