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

I am absolutely in LOVE ♥ glass glitter jars

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

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.

Glittered Jar Candle Supplies
Glass Candles, Foam Brushes, Ribbon, Glitter, Mod Podge, Twine, Beads & Scissors  

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.

WHO’S READY TO MAKE A SPIDER PUMPKIN! 
I am excited to share with you the #TrickYourPumpkin sweepstakes that will be going on Oct. 4 through 31 for a chance to win a $250 Michaels gift card and Plaid products each Friday throughout the month of October. 

HERE ARE THE RULES:
Post your pumpkin project on Instagram using hashtag #trickyourpumpkin, #sweepstakes and tag Michaels.

If you are having trouble figuring out all the different ways to keep this sucker up all year long then you and I are on the same page. It’s funny because when I started doing the rainbow pumpkin I really fell in love with it until…the matte black one was born.

…There is something sleek and sexy about an all black pumpkin, don’t you agree!

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)

I love this glitter. It has a matte look to it and it goes perfect with the shiny spiders!

vintage glitter

The first thing you want to do is place the spider on your finger, add mod podge to the end then sprinkle glitter on top.

Once your spiders are dry, grab a pair of scissors and cut the ring section off.

How gorgeous are these spiders…

halloween tutorials

Start applying the spiders on the pumpkin by adding a little hot glue to the back of them, then placing on the pumpkin. That simple. This is all we are doing with the cream pumpkin.

DSC_0565

For the matte black pumpkin you will start by spraying the pumpkin with Krylon chalkboard paint. Make sure to do this in a well ventilated space.

DSC_0540

Take your black spiders and repeat all the steps from the cream pumpkin. Once all of the spiders are glued on spray your pumpkin again with the chalkboard paint.

DSC_0559

Here is a quick tip: Remove loose strands of hot glue with a heat gun, or a blow dryer. It heats up the thin strands then they magically disappear.

Halloween is my favorite holiday as you all may know. So I teamed up with Fiskars to create a fun Halloween project just for YOU!

Sometimes I want to be a kid again. I tried it last year but I think everyone knew I was not a kid. Dammit. I lost a little weight in the last few weeks so maybe I will have a good chance this year. Last year I dressed as Frida Kahlo and boy did I look just like her. The guy at the grocery store thought I was a “geisha girl”…

Epic fail. How could anyone not realize who I was!? Moving on.

Sometimes when everyone is buying Halloween costumes they might find it difficult to find a matching treat bag to sling on their arm. I am making things super easy for you this year by showing you how to create your very own using Duck Tape! When you get to the Duck Tape isle in whatever store you are in you will realize just how many options you have to choose from. It’s like being in a sticky candy store. If you love bags check out these glittered lunch bags.

So head on over to the Fiskars website ( See below the picture) and get the full tutorial. You won’t believe what I used to make these bags with, besides Duck Tape. Did I mention the bags are filled with glow in the dark stickers. Yes indeed!

Today I will be showing you how to make Chalkboard Labels ! I love these for the simple fact that they can be used for practically anything and everything. There are a few different ways to create these labels and I obviously opted out for the “lazy” version which means my cardboard labels are already cut out.

Chalkboard labels, Prints and Chalkboards in general are popping up all over the place so this is the perfect time to share this with you.  Check out these antique chalkboard mason jars I created for Michaels, they are great to store things in

If you have a certain paper punch that you love you can use it to make labels also. It would certainly have to be a durable punch to go through cardboard but it’s possible.

Let’s get started!

diy chalkboard labels tutorial

You will need: Cardboard Tags | Chalkboard Paint | Chalk Markers | Brush  chalkboard label supplies I am absolutely in love with this chalk paint from FolkArt. It’s convenient and very compact. It also comes in multiple colors!  folk art chalk paint These particular tags came with ribbon on them. Make sure to remove the ribbon before you start painting them.

cardboard labels diy Let one side dry before you turn them over to paint the other side.

black chalk paint diy If you love chalk then you will love these markers! It works just like a paint pen and the best part is when it dries it looks just like chalk! You can also wipe the chalk away with a wet washcloth and start over again.

chalk markers Once they are dry, have fun drawing whatever you want on them.

how to use chalk markers I thought it would be cute to re-apply the ribbon and attach them to coffee bottles. You can buy a 6 pack and give them to someone as a gift with personalized labels.  chalkboard labels tutorial

DIY Back to School Teacher Gift Howdy Hoo Jaderbugs! I am super stoked to bring to you another fun Michaels Makers project today – this easy DIY Back to School Teacher Gift! This is officially my third project but check out my other two. I am still in love with these Antique Chalk Mason Jars  and this shabby chic Burlap Canvas Display. I also created a fun back to school bag for Michaels that I think every kid should wear!

This month the theme is “Back to School” and I love this time of the year. It’s always fun to get re-organized. Kids love nothing more than going to school and giving their teachers a gift which is why I wanted to make something that would stand out all year long! Come check out the other Back to School projects that the other Michaels Makers created!

YOU WILL NEED: GLASS JARS | MOD PODGE | ADHESIVE RHINESTONES | BRUSH | TISSUE PAPER | CHALKBOARD MARKERS | CHALKBOARD LABELS  DSC_0283
DSC_0294 DSC_0288 Step 1: Apply Mod Podge directly onto glass.  DSC_0289 Step 2: Place a piece of tissue paper on top of the Mod Podge then add another layer directly on top of tissue paper.

DSC_0290 Step 3: Start overlapping other colors on top of each other repeating the same process with Mod Podge. If you notice layering certain colors will create a brand new color. This is my favorite part!
DSC_0291 Step 4: Grab your adhesive rhinestones and peel off the back layer of paper.  DSC_0292 Step 5: Wrap your rhinestones around the top of glass jar. DSC_0303 Step 6: Grab a adhesive chalkboard label and place it on your jar.  DSC_0295 Step 7: ENJOY!

Hold up wait a minute, I said “ugh ahhh uhh ahh ahhh”… Remember that song? It’s pretty much stuck in my brain right now and will not leave. I have played a million other songs but this sucker is stuck! I guess I will just keep singing it so it does not drive me insane.
