Happy 4th! 

Hello & Happy 4th, y’all! I had so much fun creating todays crafts, I couldn’t want to share! 

I tried a different painting technique with this jar. It was a little tougher than I had expected, but the final product is perfect! Instead of painting the outside of the jar, I painted the inside.
This was the easiest jar! I simply painted the jar blue and added a glittery finish. I happened to find the finish on the sale rack at Michaels! I can’t wait to use it on other projects!
This little beauty took a little longer, but was worth it! I saw something similar in Michaels, and decided I could make it myself. This jar is definitely my favorite out of the three!

I hope you enjoyed! Happy crafting!!! 

Decoupage Owl

Hello!

I haven’t decoupaged something in a long time… So when I was working on this little protect I was worried it wouldn’t turn out as cute as it did!  I found the owl cut out at Walmart.  I traced the owl onto scrap book paper.  I covered the wooden owl in Mod Podge glue and then covered the paper owl in Mod Podge.  After placing the paper on top of the wood, I used a brush to smooth out the paper.  Once the paper started to dry, I applied a coat of Mod Podge to seal the paper.  I added a little bow for a finishing touch!

In Memory

I decided to take one of my favorite sayings and create a little sign.  I made one for my home and one for my niece in memory of my Mom!  This was a quick and easy little craft! 

What you’ll need:
-Sign (I chose both of mine from Michael’s)
-Markers (I used paint markers, but sharpies work too!)
-Burlap Bows!

I just simply wrote the quote on the sign above.  For the sign below, I used a plain wooden sign and painted it pink, before writing the quote.  
Then I added the burlap bows, which I also found at Michael’s!  Quick and easy!  Happy crafting y’all! 

Glitter Magnets

I found this little craft on Pinterest! 
What you’ll need: 
-glue
-glitter
-glass pebbles
-mod podge spray
-magnet
-hot glue 
Dip the back of the glass pebble in glue, I used elmers glue, then dip in glitter.  I waited a few minutes for the glue to dry and then sprayed the glitter with mod podge spray. After that dried I used hot glue to secure the magnet. They turned out so cute and work great for hanging art work on the fridge! Happy crafting, y’all! 

Homemade Snow Globe

These snow globes are super easy and lots of fun to make. 
What you’ll need:
-glass jar 
-glitter
-water
-figurine 
-water resistant glue
-glycerin 

We used spray paint to  cover the lid, depending on what kind of jar you’re using will determine if you need to paint the lid!  To start, attach the figurine to the inside lid of the glass jar. Add water, a few drops of glycerin, and glitter. Make sure the glue is water resistant and also be sure to fill the jar as much as possible with water to prevent the glitter from separating on the top and bottom of the jar. 

I also used water resistant glue to seal the lid to the jar. Really easy and lots of fun! Hope y’all enjoyed!!!
