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!!!

Mermaid in a jar!

Hello!  Michael’s has the best selection of fairy garden supplies and this year they have a ton of beachy fairy garden decorations.  I have intentions of using some of my fairy garden supplies in one of my Scentsy warmers (I’ll feature that later!), but until then, I wanted to try something different.  I made a Mermaid in a Jar!  It’s very quick, easy, and looks great in my Mermaid themed bedroom!

What you’ll need:

  • Mason Jar
  • Glass Pebbles
  • Fairy Garden Supplies (I used a mermaid, tiny star fish, and a tiny sign)
  • Ribbon

I placed the pebbles in the bottom, added the mermaid, sign, and starfish.  Then I wrapped a pearl strand around the neck of the bottle and glued into place! Pretty quick and easy.  Hope y’all enjoy!

Mermaid Mason Jar

Hello!!! Super excited about today’s post! I’ve wanted a jar for my brushes and couldn’t decide how I wanted to decorate it. I got the idea to do a mermaid jar.

What you’ll need:

  • Mason jar
  • Spray Paint
  • Ribbon
  • Fishnet stockings

I started by spray painting the jar gold.  Once the paint dried, I secured the fishnets over the jar and used a teal spray paint. I tied a ribbon around the neck of the jar.  I love it!!! Happy Crafting, y’all!

Mason Jar Craft

Hello!!! I love mason jar crafts, they are incredibly simple and always turn out adorable!
What you’ll need:
-Chalkboard paint (I used White)
-Ribbon
-Flowers
-Hot Glue Gun
Step one, paint your mason jar. Step two, wrap ribbon around jar and secure with hot glue. Step three, add flowers (real or fake).  Like I said, really simple! 
Happy crafting!

I love Ellies!!!

Happy Sunday!  I love this craft because you can definitely make it your own!  It’s a simple little mason jar craft!
What you’ll need:
 -Mason Jar
-Animal (I chose an Elephant)
-Paint (I used spray paint and acrilic)
-Ribbon
-Glue
 
I started this craft by spray painting the elephant and lid of the mason jar.  I found the perfect sized animals at Michael’s in the children’s toy isle.  Once everything was dry, I first glued the two lid pieces together and then glued the elephant to the lid.  I painted the mason jar with Martha Stewart pearl paint.  To polish off the jar, I tied a ribbon around the neck!  I have no clue what I’m going to put in the jar, but I love it!  I was thinking it would be great for hair ties and pins!  Hope y’all enjoyed! 

Luminaries

Hello! I figured after two days of decor posts, I’d feature a craft today! 
What you’ll need for the wine bottle craft:
-Epson Salt
-Ribbon
-Wine bottle
-Battery operated lights (recommend finding ones with a timer)
-Mod Podge Spray
What you’ll need for the mason jar craft:
-Mason jar
-Seashells
-Glass pebbles 
-Battery operated lights (recommend finding ones with a timer)
-Twine

For the wine bottle craft: Remove all labels, I soak the bottle in warm water and use a Brillo pad to scrub away and residue.  Once the bottle dries, spray with Mod Podge and immediately roll into Epson salt.  I poured the Epson salt on a paper plate to make it easier to roll.  I then stuffed the lights down into the bottle.  Once you let the bottle sit for a little while, the salt and Mod Podge will set and the salt will hold.  I added a little ribbon at the top.  The lights came with a battery pack and it has three different settings.  This piece didn’t fit inside the bottle, so I have it tucked behind the bottle and you can’t actually see it!  I found a very inexpensive set of lights at Walmart for this craft.  I believe they were only $5.  Only downside is that the wiring is actually green, you can’t tell in this craft, but if you’re using clear glass you would be able to see. 

For the mason jar craft: I filled the bottom of the mason jar with the desired amount glass pebbles.  I strategically placed the shells around the inside of the glass, using the glass pebbles to hold them in place.  Using twine, I tied a bow around the top of the jar.  I unraveled the strand of lights and added to the jar.  This strand of lights also has a battery pack that didn’t fit into the glass jar, so it’s sitting behind the jar.  It also came with three settings.  The only downside to this set of lights was the price, I paid about $12 for this strand from Michael’s.  I liked the silver wiring on this strand for this craft.  I have both luminaries set on a timer. 

I’m very pleased with how both luminaries turned out!  Have you made any luminaries of your own?
