super hero footprints

SUPER HERO FOOTPRINTS


At the request of many of my followers I have finally made up a few super hero footprints (I know cat woman is more of a villain but we made her, wonder woman and bat girl) 
We also made up a blue dog, a spiderman hand print and a bat man footprint (now these ideas are really not original you can find many of them floating around pinterest, this is where I have found my inspiration for the Spiderman Handprint and the Batman HERE)

LOVE BUG AND LADY BUG WINE GLASS CANDLE HOLDERS

LOVE BUG AND LADY BUG WINE GLASS

CANDLE HOLDERS

VALENTINES DAY WINE GLASS CANDLE HOLDERS
 
Materials Used: Dollar Store Wine Glasses, Glitter Blast Spray Paint (Cherry Bomb, Posh Pink, Starry Night and Diamond Dust), Hemp, Hot glue and Hot glue gun, pom poms, chenille stems, wiggle eyes, glass paint or glass paint pen and other Misc. embellishments.
(looking for the glitter spray CLICK HERE for where I purchase mine)

Directions: Make sure your glasses are clean then simply spray them with the glitter spray and let dry for 24 hours. Once dry you can embellish them any way you want to, I used things I had around the house, I found felt harts with glitter on them a couple years ago at the craft store and still had tons left over which worked perfect for the love bug. For her face I used a glass paint marker and some glass paints since I was painting on the glass and not the glitter (the white is sprayed on the inside).

Two Color Look: Start by spraying the inside of the glass with one color (black for the lady bug and white for the love bug) once dry take and cut out the desired shapes for both the glasses (wet the paper and lay on the glass, over the color area you are wanting to mask off) while the paper is damp it sticks to the glass long enough to spray your other color over top, once dry you can easily removed the paper and the masked off color underneath will show through.

NOTE: When spraying these you must treat it like any spray paint, you need to do it in coats and spray at a slight distance, if you get to close or spay too much in one spot at a time then the paint/ glitter can run. Shake the can VERY well before spraying to mix the glitter, this also helps to keep the can from clogging. If you live in a cold/ damp climate you need to take caution when spraying it may not tack up if its too cold out (you can spray them in a garage or somewhere warmer to help, but be careful of over spray in this case).

Note: These are for decoration purpose only, not meant for actual food use. 

I am so thrilled as to how popular these have become, I encourage you to make your own for you or family and friends. However I do strongly ask that you do not recreate these to sell since it directly competes with my Etsy site and local business. If you post your reproduction anywhere online such as a blog please link back to your original source of inspiration, this keeps my blog able to continue, along with me being able to create more fun ideas to share with everyone. Thank you all so much for your support.

R2-D2 TRASH CAN OR VALENTINE BOX

R2-D2 VALENTINES DAY BOX or TRASH CAN

MATERIALS USED: Basic trash can, can be small or full sized, Krylon Simmer spray paint or other silver spray paint, Felt (blue, black and gray), Hot glue or craft glue, Red button, cap or felt, scissors and glitter spray (optional). 

DIRECTIONS: Start off by spray painting the lid of your can with silver paint, if you can not find a white trash can paint it with white spray paint. Once the trash can is dry you can begin cutting out your felt pieces (I just googled a picture of R2-D2 and free handed the pieces, they don't have to be precise). I wanted my pieces of felt to glitter so we sprayed it with glitter spay ahead of time. Once you have all of your pieces cut simply glue them to your trash can. I also found an old cap to spray red and attached that along with a silver cap and a piece of black felt.  

I really wanted to start thinking of Valentines Day early this year, we always have so much fun coming up with different boxes and ideas. With the new movie being released I wanted to make something to go along with it. Once we had the idea we ran with it. After creating the can I found several others had a very similar thought, but of course it is just too stinking cute and how fun for a Valentines box and a trash can for later use.The kids are just so excited about their new box!

New Years Wine Glasses

New Years Wine Glass Candle Holders 2016

Materials: Dollar Store wine glasses, glitter spray paint (Gold), clock embellishments, and hot glue

 (looking for the glitter spray CLICK HERE for where I purchase mine)

 Make sure your glasses are clean then simply spray them with the glitter spray and let dry for 24 hours. Once dry you can embellish them any way you want. To achieve the two tone look spray the inside of the glass with one color and then using a cut out piece of paper to mask off the area (get it damp so it sticks to the glass) then simply spray the glass, once dry remove the paper. For this set I chose to the inside of the glass clear, that way I can place a candle underneath as well to enhance the 2016. All Items where glued on with hot glue or basic craft glue (I use Tacky Glue for my craft glue).


NOTE: When spraying these you must treat it like any spray paint, you need to do it in coats and spray at a slight distance, if you get to close or spay too much in one spot at a time then the paint/ glitter can run. Shake the can VERY well before spraying to mix the glitter, this also helps to keep the can from clogging. If you live in a cold/ damp climate you need to take caution when spraying it may not tack up if its too cold out (you can spray them in a garage or somewhere warmer to help, but be careful of over spray in this case).


Note: These are for decoration purpose only, not meant for actual food use.

These are so much fun because the possibilities are endless! you can do anything you want and make any character you want. Just need some glitter spray and away you go!

SNOWMAN TREAT JARS

SNOWMAN TREAT JARS- KIDS CRAFT


Materials: Dollar store jars, Crayola Model Magic, buttons, wire, Chenille stems, wiggle eyes, pom poms (or other misc embellishments), markers, craft glue, Hot glue and glue gun

Directions: Start by opening your model magic and let the kids make their snowman shapes, while the clay is still wet it does allow you to stick some items to it such as buttons and beads (I still like to glue them in though for a longer lasting piece), if the kids are old enough let them glue their items on with craft glue and decorate their snowman how ever they want. Once the snowmen have had time to dry then you can simply hot glue them to your Jars.



OCEAN WONDERS ORNAMENT

OCEAN WONDERS ORNAMENT


Materials: Glitter Blast Spray CLICK HERE (Sparkling Waters and Sapphire),clear Christmas bulbs, Sand, Hemp, Glue, Shells, Starfish and other misc embellishments.

DIRECTIONS: Start off by simply spraying the bubls with the glitter spray just a little ways down from the top. Once dry fill the bottom of the ornament with sand and shells, hot glue the top back on the ornament and wrap with hemp. I added some fun blue flower sprigs to the back that look like ocean plants, then hot glued on some starfish and a sea turtle to the outside of the ornament.
