1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Empty Jar Snowman on: December 11, 2013 09:57:33 PM


Glass bowl for the head. Empty salsa jar for the body.

Pour white paint in both then swirl to cover the insides. Pour out excess.
The body jar must be completely dry before attaching the head onto it with hot glue.
This guy has the eyes, nose and mouth made from foam sheets.
The scarf was made from a felt sheet.
Add a child size winter hat to complete the look.

You can also use "puffy paint" for the face vs foam sheets.

3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / what is missing? on: August 08, 2012 04:20:27 PM


I put this paper wreath turkey together but it seems plain, like it is missing something. It does have a gobbler if you can't see it and I do plan on adding feet. Any suggestions?
4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Paper Cone Wreath on: August 01, 2012 09:00:16 AM


For my wedding, I made a bunch of paper cones to fill with bird seed for guests to throw at us. But when we went to the ceremony, we forgot the paper cones! So I was trying to figure out what to do with all of them and this craft came to mind. I hung it on my front door.

All you need is a bunch of paper cones, hot glue and wooden embroidery ring.
hot glue the paper cones around the ring. When you get finished gleeing them the entire way around the outside, start gleeing the second layer of cones onto the first layer and move inward with every layer
for the middle, I just added an artificial flower.
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / My bridal shower favors and center pieces on: April 25, 2012 08:03:46 PM
while shopping at the dollar store for bridal shower gifts to give out as prizes, i stumbled across a cute matching green cup and plate. i stuck some flowers and pink plastic ribbon in the cup and put it on the plate and BOOM, my center pieces were born!

i made these up as favors for my bridal shower and stuck some candy in them.
i punched the butterflies out of yellow cardstock with the martha stewart butterfly punch.
i glued them on votive candle holders and painted the entire thing with Mod Podge that had glitter in it.
i thought these were so adorable and the guests did too
6  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 71 ENTRIES / valentines box on: February 03, 2012 07:40:32 PM



while looking at an unfinished heart box and a bin of rhinestone beads on clearance, i envisioned a cute little valentines day box for my step daughter. 

i painted the base pink and the lid red after i painted the inside white. then i coated the whole thing in glitter paint.
i dipped the rhinestones in tacky glue one by one and placed them on the trim of the lid. afterwards, i looked at it and it looked unfinished so i outlined the heart with some of the beads and i liked the final product.
my step daughter loved it so much, she made one for her best friend.
i think it's a cute little box to keep change in.
