Martha Stewart Countdown #49 Tinsel Snowflakes

Ya know. Everyone loves snowflakes! I know I do! When I was a little bitty baby girl I remember sitting in my room trying to fold paper and cut in certain spots to make them. Never turned out like I wanted. I think it’s time I try again. Maybe that will be in another post! But today we are making affordable fun crafts to add to your Christmas tree! Martha Stewart even has the template for you to use!

Tinsel isn’t just for sprinkling on an evergreen tree. Try creating this sparkling ornament to brighten any room.This tinsel glitter is so amazing. It totally reminds me of vintage crafts. You just don’t see tinsel anymore! But Martha Stewart is bringing it back {to the bottom of the map}…

Using a utility knife, cut out the snowflake shape. From this  template.

 Using a medium paintbrush, coat one side of shape with craft glue or use the tip of the glitter glue.

I used Martha Stewart’s tinsel glitter.

This is what they should look like after you cut them out.

Sprinkle with tinsel glitter. Let glue dry; shake off excess glitter. It’s already looking crazy pretty RIGHT!

Listen! I wanna design a snowflake line. I would make the best ornaments ever! Of course I would use tinsel glitter {{teehee}}

I want to eat one. They just look like something that would feel so good in my belly right now!

It’s little baby decorations  I swear I can’t type all of these blogs fast enough to show you everything I want at one time! Guess that means you will have to come back!!!

Martha Stewart Countdown #48 Decorative Paper Lanterns

Happy Maniac Monday Jaderbugs! It’s a good ole Monday and I am super excited to share this craft with you. The first time I saw it, it reminded me of fish scales. I guess because it sorta has that texture to it. I LOVE LOVE LOVE texture. I still can’t believe all of the things you can do with a lil tissue paper. I mean, it’s not JUST for stuffing a bag with! It’s truly amazing!

Tools And Materials

Tissue-paper disks in assorted colors

Double-sided tape

14-, 16-, or 18-inch-diameter paper lanterns


I used the Martha Stewart Large Circle Cutter.

Place your tissue paper down on your protected surface and turn that baby! Remember not to go too fast because you are dealing with very thin paper and it can tear very easily.

This is what your circles should look like! OR you can get Tissue-paper circles, 5 inches, in Pastel and Primary, $6 for 480; hyglossproducts.com. This might make your life easier!

Take your double stick tape and place a little piece on your lantern. Wire-frame spherical paper lanterns, from $3.25 each; pearlriver.com.

Starting at the bottom of the lantern, use small squares of tape to begin attaching tissue-paper disks around the hole, overlapping them. Working toward the top, continue sticking and overlapping disks to cover the lantern.

I hope this big red ball makes you smile from ear to ear. I mean, I can do this for every single holiday and it’s totally affordable.

Big Red Balls, your jaderbomb

Martha Stewart Countdown #47 Light Bright

I decided to stay up and do this craft for you! I couldn’t help it! It’s so easy to make and lemme tell you how much this baby lights up a room! It’s so elegant and did I mention it was super duper easy!!!! 

 

 

First thing you want to do is get a canvas. I used a pretty large one because I wanted to have a lot of negative space. My canvas was 18×24 and I purchased it from Michaels Arts and Crafts.

Grab a box of lights. They are all over right now so you shouldn’t have trouble finding them!

I tried a couple of things to puncture the canvas but the good ole ice pick did the trick!

 Use the ice pick to puncture a hole. Start putting lights in each hole.

See how pretty and whimsical this baby looks. I wanted to make mine look a like a shooting star. {lol} I know, it’s my vision of what a shooting star would look like!

I love how it looks so close. Who woulda ever thunk it, that lights can make you feel so good! I wonder how it would look with colored lights!

Sending you lot’s of things to pick away with and then make a wall of canvases and lights, your jaderbomb

Martha Stewart Countdown #46 Doily Pillow

Yep. Another long night. I am about to heat up a Hot Pocket {{ and not work out after }}….Gonna go strait to bed. I have to admit to you something. I am not drawn into many “reality” shows but this darn SISTER WIVES got me. I am sitting here crying because…well I’m not too sure. Maybe it is the abundance of love they share with each other. Who cares what they do…I believe in happiness. As long as they are not hurting anyone I am good! They just had a new baby and it was so touching. Maybe I am emotional because I am tired or maybe just because it made me feel good watching them. Who cares. They got me all sappy… Guess I’ll fix it by watching The Real Housewives of Atlanta… Yep. That should fix it. I wish they would do a Real Housewives of Lafayette. Let’s craft!

Get some fabric

Then get the color of paint you want to use. I wanted a BRIGHT red since Christmas is BRIGHT!

Don’t forget to grab your fabric medium. You absolutely need this to convert the paint into fabric paint.

Get your stencil adhesive because you will surely need this!

I wanted to use a brush because I had to paint a large surface.

Get your doily. I just grabbed some that I had in my studio (not even gonna lie :) BTW: I used a paper doily.

Spray the backs with adhesive then place them where you want them.

Start painting your entire surface. After you paint you want to peel off the paper doilies.

You want to let it sit for 24 hours then iron it. This will set the paint.

Place right side up and sew three of the sides. You want to leave one side open so you can slide a pillow in it.

This is what it will look like when you turn it inside out (after you sew three sides)

I love this fabric.

I am so happy with the way it came out! It is so pretty in person! I hope you have fun with this crafterroo!

Sending you a doily to wrap your lovely bed in, jaderbomb
