Hello! I think if I could master every form of art, I would. Recently, I’ve been playing with watercolors. I’m not very good & any success I have had is from following tutorials on Pinterest! Hope y’all enjoy!
Hello! I’ve been working on fun tribal decor for my niece! Michael’s had a great sale on canvas and I stocked up! This is the first creation. I tried using a stencil and I didn’t love the stencil. Next time I think it might try a different technique! They still turned out cute! Hope y’all enjoy!
Hello! Here’s a little painting that I did for my living room. I used silver spray paint for the background and used acrylic paints for the the tree and ornaments.
As many of you already know, I’m a Scentsy Independent Consultant! Today I wanted to share some ideas I’ve had on reusing Scentsy clam shells! I get so many of these and I love finding ways to reuse them!!!
What you’ll need:
-Empty clam shell
-Glue (Elmers & hot glue)
For the first project, I made a critter out of the lid portion of the clam shell. I cut a piece of scrapbook paper to the shape of the lid. Using Elmer’s glue I secured the paper to the lid, then added the eyes and nose. I used a marker to make the mouth. Using a hot glue gun, I secured the pipe cleaner to the back of lid and also secured the magnet. I used corners of the scrapbooking paper to create the ears and glued them to the outer portion of the lid!
When I initially used the magnets on the back of the lid, I used Styrofoam to lift the magnet out of the lid a little, but I later found it was easier to glue the magnet directly to the lid.
This next project is great for my fellow Scentsy Consultants! I cut the lid off of old clam shells and added my label with my information. It’s a great play on a business card! I just glued a magnet on the back. I use it as a bag stuffer when packaging orders and my customers love it!
This isn’t so much a project, but sharing an idea! I love using the empty wax portion of the clam shell as a pallet for paints! It comes in handy with all the crafting and painting I’ve been doing lately!!!
The last idea is kinda fun! I took a clam shell and glued a piece of scrapbook paper on the front. I then cut eight slips of paper and tucked them into each section. On the pieces of paper I wrote a small object, for example “penny” or “paper clip” to create a scavenger hunt. Obviously you can write what ever you heart desires on the slips of paper, I was trying to think of little things that would fit into the little compartments!
I hope you enjoyed today’s post! I’d love to hear any other suggestions on how to reuse the clam shells!!! Happy Crafting Y’all!!!
If you couldn’t tell by now, I’m a tad obsessed with monograms! Here we go!
What you’ll need:
-Mod Podge Spray
I started by painting the letter, top half white and bottom half teal. I used a paint brush to apply glue and applied the glitter, I used white glitter for the top and teal glitter for the bottom. I used a ribbon in the middle and tied a bow! With this project I did seal it with Mod Podge spray to seal the glitter! Hope y’all enjoyed!
Today’s post is a quickie! I purchased an adorable frame from (you guessed it!) Michael’s and I wasn’t sure what to do with it! Finally I decided to just paint it! I added glitter to give it a pretty shimmer and added little polka dots on the straps.
So cute!!! I’m sure there are a million ways to decorate these little frames, you could always add little embellishments like little pearls, ribbon, flowers, butterflies, the list goes on!
Hope y’all enjoyed! Have a great day!!!
