Remember a while back when I told you about my bestie Ed Roth and his new product line coming out this year? I am so excited to show you an exclusive sneak peek of the new Stencil1 collection. I am pretty much in love with the entire collection and I am positive you will too!
Today I will show you how to create your own stenciled coasters. These are super easy and so affordable you can make them for everyone you know!
Let’s get started BIG PICTURE FOR SITE AND PINTEREST

You will need:
Craft Paint | Craft Brush | Wooden Coasters | Mod Podge | Stenciling brush/ pouncer | Adhesive Spray |  Stencil 1 Stencil

You can purchase all of these craft products from one spot by clicking on these affiliate links.  STENCILCOASTERS I absolutely love all of the colors I am using from FolkArt! The colors are SO bright and bold and beautiful! The great news is this paint can be used for many things. Glass, wood, plastic and pretty much anything else! FOLK ART PAINT STEP ONE:  The first thing you will do is place your wooden coaster on a clean surface. I like using paper plates for things like this. Squirt a little red paint on your wooden coaster and cover the entire coaster. When you are done with the first color move on to the next.  painted wood diy  Anything rainbow makes me super happy!  RAINBOW CRAFTS
STEP TWO:  One all of your coasters are dry squirt some white paint on a paper plate. Grab your stenciling brush and put a little white paint on it.

STEP THREE:  I like to spray the back of my stencil with a spray adhesive to add a little stickiness to it. It will stick better to the wood but you do NOT have to use this.

STEP FOUR:  Gently start pouncing your wooden coaster with the brush. Make sure you do it in an up and down motion.  ed roth stencils
STEP FIVE: When you are done immediately peel off the stencil. You won’t believe your eyes when you see it! homemade crafts
STEP SIX:  Move onto your next color.  learn to stencil stencil crafts
Are you in love with this! I like to recycle so I used the same plate for each color, yo! Don’t forget to touch up the sides when you are done.  finger painting
STEP SEVEN:  I like to seal everything with Mod Podge.  mod podge diy How beautiful are these coasters! I am so happy for my friend Ed and his creations!  rainbow coasters
The great thing about these coasters is the pack was $1.00 and the paint is totally affordable also. The paint will last forever too! You can give these to someone as a gift or make them for yourself.  diy coasters

Seriously Y’all. Today I will show you how to Dye Easter Eggs, just wait —–> Not just eggs but Tie-Dyed Eggs. I am totally obsessed with tie-dye. You would think I am a born again 15 year old who’s parents traveled in a camper and lived for Woodstock or just wood. Wait, they did.

So I write for I Love to Create, twice a month and I get to actually do FUN stuff like this for my JOBBBY JOB! I know. You are totally shaking your head right now saying “ughhhh I wanna dye eggs and listen to loud music all day”… TRUST, it took me a long time and lot’s of hard work to get this egg dying job. Check out all of my crafts that I have made for them.

Thankful? YOU BETCHA BOTTOM DOLLAR. There is a special technique I used on these eggs so make sure to click this link <——- to see the magic trick.

How to Dye Easter Eggs My fur child got jealous when I was making these eggs and just begged for some tie-dye on her pure white fur. Don’t worry it’s all NON TOXIC! That alone rocks!

Today it is all about mugs. I don’t know about you but I somehow collect way too many mugs and what happens is I never can decide which one I actually want to drink out of. I guess just like the clothes I wear I believe my coffee cup defines what kind of mood I am in or want to be in.

What? You don’t think so? Shoots, maybe I am just a nut case but at least I am a nutcase than could throw a banging coffee party. Remember my coffee party I did for Martha? You know you could always use these printables for a banging party too!

“I like light green, sometimes red is fun to look at, not a fan of yellow, unless it’s in a rainbow or on a coffee mug or on a happy face.”

PINTERESTMUGS YOUWILLNEED *Glass Paint 
*Mugs
*Daubers
*Adhesive Stencils
*Brush and Stencil Cleaner
How to Stencil Mugs The great thing about Martha Stewart’s stencils is the fact that they have a nice adhesive backing to them. This is good because they will not budge when you paint on them.  martha stewart adhesive stencils

Start by placing them on the mugs wherever you want. Don’t worry, if you mess up you can remove them and reapply them where you want.  numbered mugs diy Once your stencil is secure squirt a little bit of glass paint inside of your stencil.  how to write on glass I love using daubers because they distribute the paint nice and even through out the stencil. They also help prevent bleeds since you are apply in an up and down motion.  martha stewart dauber Apply one even coat and re-apply a second coat 10 minutes later. If you want a really opaque look add a third coat.  how to stamp glass

Before your paint dries pull off your stencil and place it in a bowl of water.

Take them out of the water when you are done and place them on a paper towel. Grab another paper towel and apply a little stencil cleaner to it. Gently rub the stencil and the paint will come off.  how to clean stencils martha steawart stencils Allow them to dry over night and if you want lock in the paint you can bake them in the oven. The directions to doing that is on the bottle.  numbered mugs I hope you enjoyed this easy and fun DIY tutorial.

Today I am sharing something that makes me smile from ear to ear. My top 10 DIY Posts of 2013! HOLY COW, 2013 is OVER! I can’t even believe it’s over already. I honestly remember 2000 happening last week and now 14 years later.

This past year was by far my BEST year ever with so many things. I graduated college, my blog GREW (WHOA IT GREW), I came OUT on my blog, I started working with some GREAT brands, my site got HACKED (thanks Max for fixing that because I got to finally design my site the way I wanted) and my son who is almost 14 (WHAT) is happy and healthy! I am so thankful to the UNIVERSE for everything. She really does listen. When you manifest good things, good things come. I never imagined the success that would come along with a little blog I started almost 4 years ago. I could go on for day’s but I think this might sum everything up for you.

THANK YOU! 2014 has already started extremely well and I can’t wait to announce tom just one thing super exciting! Lot’s of FUN things to tell you but I have to wait till I get permission for each of them! Are you on your toes yet?  Top 10 DIY Posts of 2013 - WWW.JADERBOMB.COM

I don’t know about you but if you add glitter to anything you will put an instant smile on my face. Today we will be making Glitter Dishes!

I started playing around with paper plates a few weeks ago creating a few easy ways to “dress” them up. I think I was successful with it, what do you think?! I mean, I truthfully hate washing dishes and putting them up so why not serve anyone out of fancy paper plates. It’s not like I am having Christmas at my house but if I did I would lay all these babies out!

Check out these I made with ribbon and these with lace!

howtomakeglitterdishes

you will need *Paper Plates and Bowls   * Glitter  *Brush  *Mod-Podge  *LOVE GlitteredPlateSupplies The first thing you want to do is coat your paper plate with Mod Podge.  easywaystouseglitter You want to work a little fast since Mod Podge dries very quick.

howtouseglitter Sprinkle glitter over the wet Mod Podge. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect because after all it’s just going to be used as decoration. Did I mention you will throw it away after it’s used!

I coated the underneath of the bowl just to add a little more love.  thingstodowithglitter glitteredplates glitterdishes It’s seriously that simple! Fun thing is you can make them for every holiday and it will not break the bank.

What will you use your glittered bowls for?

Today I will show you how to make a 2 Tier Party Platter. It’s really simple and did I mention you can toss it when you are done using it!

Yep today we will use paper plates (sturdy ones) for this project.
