Onesies are a must for any new Mommy to be. I don’t think it is possible to ever have too many. If you are new Mommy, or will be attending a baby shower soon these stenciled onesies make a great gift to give. These can be personalized, and they are super easy to make. All you will need are some stencils and paints from The Martha Stewart craft line. I discovered this project on a craft blog, Little Door On The Sound. Amanda created these, and she made 10 of them in only 1 and half hours. Amazing! Below are the materials you will need. To see how Amanda made these click here.
The Martha Stewart Craft paint line manufactured by Plaid Enterprises has several products. These products range from paints, finishes, to stencils. One of the lines most popular finishes is the Crackle Effect. Crackle finish gives a piece the aged look of peeling paint. Watch this video to learn all about this finish, and how to apply to your next craft project. Click here to view, or on the image below. Have you ever used the Martha Stewart crackle effect?
The time is almost here. Mother’s Day is only in a few short days. While I already have gotten my Mom’s gift, I am now having second thoughts after seeing these lovely Martha Stewart Stenciled Pillows. Pillows are a great gift to give, and a wonderful project to make. An accent pillow can really change the dynamic of any room in your home. Fireflies and Jellybean created these pillows using several items from the Martha Stewart craft line. What also really caught my eye were the colors used in this project. Yellow and dark blue hues compliment each other very well. If I were to make these pillows I would put them on a patio chair. Have you ever created an accent pillow?
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.

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.
