About jaderbombllc

I am a Southern DIY blogger and Designer known for fearlessly conquering anything and everything do-it-yourself. I aim to create unique designs by working through my thoughts, dreams, emotions, and tons of glitter! I believe in doing things that make my heart flutter and smile, and I live by my motto, “Life is simple and so should your style.” To learn more about me, visit jaderbomb.com or email me at jade@jaderbomb.com. You can also visit my Etsy shop at jaderbomb.etsy.com. Make sure to check out my FREE PRINTABLES site www.freeprettyprintables.com My biggest accomplishment thus far is being a guest on the Martha Stewart show, yes she smells good. I love my dog Ceaux Ceaux, pens,the smell of Christmas, GOLD, Dr. Pepper and blogging. BTW: I bleed glitter, all shades.

Today we will close our eyes and make Rainbow Glass Jars, you know the ones that are made for fairies… What! You are not one? Good news for ya, the yumminess in these jars will turn you into one as soon as you sprinkle it on you.

Ok fine all that will happen if you dump this load of glitter on you is a hot dam mess on the floor. Let’s not forget your precious hair, yes it will be full of glitter. I used tinsel glitter for this lil project so you really are doomed. Unless you are like me and you wouldn’t mine glistening in the sun like Edward Cullen did daily. If you like all that glitters, then check out all of my rainbow crafts.

…now let’s get to the nitty gritty

Rainbow Glass Jars

What You’ll Need (You can purchase all of the items I used in this post by clicking on the links below. These are affiliate links so ordering from them helps me buy more glitter and glue)

*Hot Glue Gun
*Slices of Wood
*Mini Glass Jars
*Glitter
*Ribbon (Make sure it’s thin)

I bought a little bag of sliced birch wood at Michaels. They are so dang precious I didn’t even want to use them for this post! FYI: they were only 2 bucks a bag. Now say that 6 times really fast! birch wood

These are all of the colors I used for this post, well minus black.  martha stewart rainbow glitter

Step One: Fill your glass jars with glitter. It’s your choice to fill them all the way or half way. I like leaving room for them to float around a little.

Step Two: With the bottle up right put a little hot glue around the rim and then carefully place your piece of wood right on top. Hold it in place for a few seconds until the glue is dry. VOILA!

Step Three: on the opposite side of the wood put a dot of glue then place your ribbon “good side down” right on top.  birch wood crafts Step Four: Tie the ends of your ribbon together. You just created a hanger on your fun glitter jar.  diy christmas ornaments

Sequins, Ornaments & Coffee. I am not sure which one I love more which is why I usually combine the three together. It would be nice if coffee cream came in some sorta glitter form that dissolved slowly while sipping away. I mean I somehow find glitter and sequins hibernating in all corners of my house and studio so I just dust around them. Not really but that gives me a few ideas. Come see how I glittered candle jars, totally perfect for that last minute Christmas present.

*Sequined floors (I am sure resin would love to live on top of that)… I literally googled this and found NOTHING. That my dear is pretty disappointing. Which means something drastic needs to happen ASAP. Stay tuned.

*Sequined walls (Maybe just one accent wall, right?) I did find this tutorial which makes me feel super giddy inside. This could work.

You get the hint. Sequins for life. I recently did a post for I Love to Create and I felt my inner Liberace come out. I did have the new Lorde soundtrack playing so I am not sure if I am living in two different worlds but either way it worked. Click on the link at the bottom to get to the full tutorial.

Get a group together and everyone make a homemade ornament then everyone gets a pretty freaking cool homemade gift. You will have two choices at that point to actually put it up on your tree or “re-gift” it, haha!   sequin ornaments

First of all Happy Friday! I am super excited to share with you some awesome Christmas Tree Decorating Tips. Christmas is already a fun holiday but when you start adding up all the beautiful ornaments you see displayed in the stores it can take a nice little chunk our of your pocket. I want to show you how to decorate with a budget! Kinda like the Ramen Noodles of the home decor world. Is it sad that I actually love those noodles, especially with crackers. Don’t ask me what other food’s I love that I shouldn’t love because you might not ever look at me the same, hehe!

This might be “sorta” a long post so put on that glittery seatbelt and enjoy the ride. Remember a few weeks aga when Michaels sent me this and a lovely gift card to purchase things from their store and turn them into magic?

I am still in awe to be one of the #MichaelsMakers and we would love to see your tips as part of the #TagATree campaign this holiday season.  Tree-Decorating-Tips-Creative Now before we begin let me tell you what I think is important when it comes to decorating your Christmas Tree. Have you seen my Christmas tree yet? 

1. Stick to a theme. I think it’s very important to find a theme and run with it. When you go into the store knowing what colors, patterns and styles you are working with you will buy only those things needed. 
2. Think outside of the box. Keep in mind you can dress up plain boring ornaments! Find some that you like and take elements from them to create some for a cheaper price!
3. Decorate your tree to fit your personality. Be you! If you like black and white then do black and white! If you like bright and whimsical then go all out! Anything in large quantities always looks nice so with that said, you can NEVER have too many ornaments. At least not in my house!
4. Use your home decor as a palette to decorate your tree. If you want your tree to go along with your home decor then carry your taste into your tree. You can switch a few things but for the most part your home decor can shine out of your tree.
5. Get a tree you love. I always say get a real one but if you can’t then invest in an artificial tree that will make your heart skip a beat. I have been craving a white tree but I have not had to chance to get one yet. Don’t you worry my little fingers will scour ebay very soon. Did I say I wanted a vintage one? PURE LOVE.
6. LIGHTS. Any tree (even a lopsided one) will look better with a TON of lights.

Behold! That moment you have all been waiting for. How I created my ornaments the diy cheap way.

DIY ORNAMENTS

Now I always buy an abundance of plain ornaments because I always find ways to decorate them with that Jaderbomb flare. I did have one particular ornament in mind when I decided how I would decorate my tree. Last year when I went to CHA I bought a Nightmare before Christmas ornament and I knew I would use that as my number one accent piece. I mean, is it Halloween or Christmas! YOU SEE~

♥ For the ornament below I mixed my favorite shade of teal paint with a little dab of water in a bowl and mixed together. Use a spoon to fill the inside of the ornament then SHAKE! SHAKE IT OFF, SHAKE IF OFF, at least Florence thinks we should do that. Once the entire ornament is filled with paint flip it upside down to dry. I simply placed them back in the tray they came in.

You can purchase a bag of these slices of wood from Michaels and glue your favorite ribbon around it then voila. Hot glue the wood slice to the bottom of your ornament and you have your very own designer ornament. I glued two little puff balls on the bottom to make it POP.
TIFFANY BLUE ORNAMENT

♥For this ornament I simply colored the inside then glued white puff balls to the outside in random spots.
TIFFANY BLUE CHRISTMAS
♥I purchased some clear ornaments to I could fill them with fun goodies. I added black and white puff balls and striped ribbon inside. Easy, Fun and Cheap. 

CLEAR ORNAMENTS

♥I bought plain black ornaments and hot glued them to the outside. I am in love with these.
BLACK AND WHITE ORNAMENTS

♥I am just in love with these white ornaments from Michaels. They are clean and crisp, sorta like a clean slate. I bought some striped ribbon and tied a little piece around the top! BAM. You would swear I paid 20 bucks for this baby.
black and white ornament

♥ I just had to re-create my main ornament I bought last year so in order to do that I used one of my white ornaments, glued two black puffy balls for the eyes and used some Martha Stewart glass paint (fine tip) to draw the mouth and nose.
nightmare before christmas ornament You can just tell how I used all of the same products to create a beautiful, affordable themed tree. We will just call it a Nightmare before Tiffany’s tree. Right? Remember to have fun with your tree and get the whole family involved!

There are a few things in life that make my heart flutter.
Prednisone, a good kiss, seeing my son every afternoon and glitter. All shades of glitter.

This Saturday, November 15th Michaels will be hosting a super rad Holiday Pinterest Party! When you go in you will get a list of “Pinterest-Inspired holiday projects and an exclusive coupon to use when purchasing products needed for your project.

Michaels sent me a list of every single project they will be creating on Saturday and asked me if I wanted to create one using a little Jaderbomb love to it. HELLER! It’s on like donkey kong. BTW: Did you see my Dream Tree I did with Michaels!

Michaels created these super soft and delicate glittered jar candles and I decided to bring out the fun and whimsical side of glittered candles.

Michaels_DreamTree_A01

Obviously I can’t settle with just pink glitter and an eiffel tower…. SMH

Don’t get me wrong, I loved the pink candle that Michaels created (Michaels instructions here). I personally have a thing for black and white with POPS of color. Maybe it’s the fact that I simply can’t be satisfied long enough with color. Plus every color in the world looks better with back and white. Preferably stripes! I used fun colorful beads to wrap around my candle but you can use any beads that make your heart flutter.

P.S. Black and White striped ribbon is the BEST.  michaels holiday pinterest party

When I saw these alphabet beads for about 3 seconds I felt 10. I used to give these to my friends as “BFF” bracelets. I am now reminded that I need to buy 5 more packs of these. So stay on the look out, you might be getting BFF bracelets!  CHRISTMAS JEWELS

Create any word you want and use baker’s twine to connect the letters.
BLACK AND WHITE NECKLACE

I used flexible jewelry wire to wrap wooden beads around the top of candle. This adds a little, ok a HUGE pop of color. If you squint your eyes they kinda look like NERDS. #JS  BEADED NECKLACE

Carefully wrap your beaded wire around the base of your candle or the top portion of candle. It’s pretty much that simple! Last, tie your beaded words the same way.

This is my first year that I get to make a tree for Michaels and I will tell you I had so much fun! There are so many talented bloggers involved with the #MichaelsMakers #TagATree challenge this year and I feel so honored to be one of them! Make sure you stop by Michaels’ blog, The Glue String to see all of the Dream Tree reveals. To kick off the holiday season, make sure and check out of Michaels’ Make it Merry inspiration book or all kinds of holiday tips and projects. Stay tuned on the 14th I will share with you how I created my ornaments!

Dream-Tree-Challenge-Creative-512x512

WAHOO! It’s finally time to reveal my MICHAELS DREAM TREE! I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun I had creating this tree! If you know anything about me then you know I love black and white stripes. I mean, if I could wear stripes all day every day I would be happy… (minus being behind bars)… I wanted to take this tree to a whole new level with more DIY ornaments than I have ever done. Stay tuned I will be sharing how I made the ornaments later this week. I wanted to tie in my quirky personality with the stripes so I added some fun creamy pastel shades throughout the tree. The great thing about black and white is you can throw in any accent color and it will look fabulous!

CHRISTMAS TREE REVEAL MICHAELS CHRISTMAS TREE REVEAL

I was super excited when Michaels sent me this 7ft Willow Christmas Tree! The tree was completely brown but I wanted to lighten it up a little so I flocked some of the branches and even a few ornaments. Of course I flocked the tree before I added my ornaments but once it was complete I added a little more flock. I really wanted a “white” christmas! I live in Louisiana so we know the chances of that happening are very slim!

Don’t forget to share the love and click the links to see the projects! These are my peeps y’all and trust me they are very talented. 

In other news tonight I ate Bar-B-Q and it was delicious. However, the entire time I was eating I could not stop thinking about the astronaut “food” I ran across in Michaels today. I mean do people really eat that and if so how come they only had strawberry and chocolate ice-cream? Personally if I would (notice I said IF) spend my hard earned money on dried food I would want rice and gravy or lasagna. Do they even have that or do they only eat ice-cream…SEE, now you get my drift…

Halloween Party 101. Well not really but let me just tell you I have a thing for crows. I remember when I used to freak out by the thought of a black crow. Now, I smile really big and give them names. I think many people associate a black crow with death and bad luck but shoots, I will go with the positive aspects of them. Here are a few incase you are “dying” to know!

  • Life magic; mystery of creation
  • Destiny, personal transformation, alchemy
  • Intelligence
  • Higher perspective
  • Being fearless, audacious

We all cool now? Remember these book/magazine holders I made? Well today I will show you how to spruce up those lovely white pillar candles that you get from Walgreens for 3 bucks. You know which ones I am talking about right?

The religious ones. But I get the plain white ones. I will gladly assume they are blank so I can create my own spiritual fairy on it and pray to “whoever”.  Today we are praying to the black crows, and not the band. Even thought I rocked out to them 10 years ago. I wonder if the “Black Crows” (the band) is throwing a Halloween party.

YOU WILL NEED: PILLAR CANDLE | ADHESIVE DOTS | SILK RIBBON | SCISSORS | HALLOWEEN STICKERS
halloween candles diy

Don’t get me wrong. I love glue. BUT I love adhesive jewels any day. Granted they will not be as durable without glue but for projects like this they rock my world. I got this sheet from Michaels and they were one whole dollar.
adhesive stickers jewels crafts

Step ONE: Apply the sticky jewels to the outside of your candle. BAM NO GLUE! diy candles

Step TWO: Cut a piece of silk ribbon. Look, if you are a die hard fan of ribbon then you know this is the LAND ROVER of silk land. Well, at least I think so. This stuff is 30 something a roll but let me tell you it’s worth it! It’s as soft as a…..bunny’s tail.  silk ribbon crafts

Step THREE: Tie three pieces of ribbon around your pillar candle (above the jewels). easy crafts for your home

Step FOUR: Admire these unique stickers from jolee’s boutique. Are you familiar with this line? I know I am and you will love them too! halloween stickers crafts

Step FIVE: Grab your favorite sticker and place it directly on top of the ribbon. VOILA YO.  halloween crow black crow crafts

Today it’s all about Halloween Party Ideas, YO! Let me tell you I am full of ideas thank to my BFF Martha! It’s kinda crazy because I started celebrating Halloween (here on the blog) in September and I should start tackling Christmas but I can’t seem to divorce Halloween yet.

I enjoy all of the quirky, spooky and mysterious qualities of Halloween. Fact is, I have been thinking of what “theme” I will use this year for my Christmas tree. I ran across this and it has me completely confused. So can I have a Halloween tree, or is that against Santa’s rules? Help me out y’all! Remember this black and white party I threw last year?  I would like to go back to that ASAP! It was such a fun party that I had by myself, haha!

So here are a few snippets of how you can decorate any space for a quick and fun spooky party!

Halloween Party Ideas Are you scared yet? I know I am! TeeHee…

I mean, I almost can’t deal with these 3 dimensional skulls. I love them so much I think if I add a santa hat to them they might just stick around a bit longer.

Santa is pretty old right?

A MUST.

Did I mention they already have holes punched in them! This is a “shake your head moment”….

Just add clear glass, a vintage tea set and voila! If you don’t have a tea set you can add tons of clear glass and fill them with spooky little spiders and that will do the job.

Did you notice the bats flying like crazy on the mirror!

paper flag banner diy To make the flags you will need this pack of pre cut triangles from Michaels. Hold on y’all….They have different prints on both sides! Wahooo!! Since the holes are already at the top all you have to do is pass string or twine through them then hang up! I used black silk ribbon to mine.

If you don’t own silk ribbon then you are missing out! It’s heaven. Seriously. Go get some.

In this month’s Michaels Makers post I will be showing you how to make homemade halloween costume for dogs. This costume was super fun to make. Not to mention my dog was in the best mood during the entire process, as you can see on her cute little face. When I Michaels told us we had to create a Halloween costume my mind went nuts! I started thinking of so many different things but the one thing that made complete sense was elsa and my dog. So the two got together and they are now living happily ever after. This costume is really easy and I know you can do it! Let’s get started! homemade halloween costume for dogs

Check out Michaels’ Halloween Market lookbook or Halloween Pinterest board for some project favorites, including costumes, personalized pumpkins, porch décor and more. 

YOU WILL NEED… Headband | Yarn | Glue Gun | Fabric Fusion | Blue & White Felt | Tulle in Shades of Blue

MICHAELSMAKERS

STEP ONE… Take your tulle and cut strips the same size. This will vary depending on how big or small your dog it.
STEP TWO …Pass the tulle around the headband and tie a not. Make sure to make the ends even on top before tying the knot.  1 STEP THREE…To make the hair you will wrap your yarn around the back of a chair like below. Put hot glue on a piece of felt then wrap it around the yarn in the middle. This will secure your yarn so it stays in place. When you are done take the yarn off of the chair and cut the “loop” to create two long pieces of hair on each side! It’s that easy.  YARN WIG TUTORIAL STEP FOUR …Time to make the neck tie. I figured I would man up the elsa costume a little.  Cut your felt in small strips.
STEP FIVE…Cut small pieces of fabric fusion and place them on the ends of the felt. Add a second strip of felt directly on top of the fabric fusion to create one long strip of felt.
STEP SIX…To connect the neck piece I added two small pieces of white felt on each end to connect under the body of the dog.

frozen crafts

For the hair of elsa, I realize she has a braid but Ceaux Ceaux (co-co) wanted long luscious locks! P.S. To secure the hair I took two pieces from each side and tied it under her chin. Voila! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Make sure to check out the other costumes created by the other Michaels bloggers.

Happy Monday Jaderbugs! With Halloween right around the corner everyone is looking for pumpkin decorating ideas, including myself. It amazes me every year how many great pumpkin posts are out there so I always try to decorate pumpkins that are different and fun! I had these gilding sheets from Martha Stewart that I never put to use so I figured this would be the best time to do so. I have tried many different gilding techniques and I can honestly say I am in love with these sheets. Check out all of my pumpkins decorating ideas here! If you love glow in the dark then you don’t want to miss this one!

…LET’S GET STARTED

Wait for your adhesive to get sticky (you will feel it) Grab your gilding sheet and apply the silver side directly onto the pumpkin

halloween decorations STEP FOUR…
Take your sheet and simply press it down onto the pumpkin. Notice I am wearing my gloves for this step. You really don’t have to press too hard for this part. I also like to stick the entire sheet down and use my brush to apply a little pressure to the pumpkin.

This is what you will be left with on the pumpkin. It’s like magical shimmer dust. I don’t know about you but this kind of stuff excites me. It reminds me of of those stickers I used as a kid where you would use a popsicle stick to rub it off! Remember?
