Today it’s all about the infamous Watermelon. Not actually a real one, but one much better! One that will last for a few years if given lot’s of love and attention!

The other day I decided to go for a walk around the neighborhood and I stumbled across random pieces of wood (see below). One resembled a watermelon. It’s like the fruit gods sent it directly to me. My friend had a painted watermelon at her house a few years ago and I fell in love. All this wood needed was a little paint and then it would be complete. I know I have not added the seeds yet but that’s because I am still trying to decide if I want real seeds or painted seeds. What do you think I should do???

After I painted this lovely piece of wood it gave me an idea. Why not make Watermelon Pillows to dress up my outdoor space. There you have it folks. Needless to say I am now sorta addicted to watermelon’s and I want and need more of them, hehehe.

February Challenge creative 1 Happy Monday! I am so excited to share some denim crafts with you today! As a Michael’s Maker I was challenged by my friends at Michael’s to do something magical with their new line of denim products – Make Market. If you have not seen this line yet, now is the time! I can remember the day’s I would beg my friends for their old jeans so I could rip and tear them up. I used to always use denim and let me tell you this makes things NICE!

I love the variety of denim that is available. They have bows, ribbon, bags, canvases, wraps, cuts pieces and so much more!!! I started thinking about what I would make with the denim and then it dawned on me. I have a new chicken and she needs a basket to sleep in and I need a new basket to get our fresh eggs with. VOILA!

Here I am so excited next the denim line. Not cheesy at all! (hehe)

photo (10) 2 & and chicken. If you don’t have a chicken or fresh eggs you can still make this basket and use it for decoration or fill it with goodies and give to someone as a gift.  silkie chicken I simply love this ribbon. I would be a little happier if they made some with adhesive backing! I mean then I could stick them on practically everything! blue jean crafts Step 1: Open a pack of ribbon and start on a corner, weaving the ribbon over and under the openings. It’s truly simple but time consuming.

Step 2: When you get all the way around cut the ribbon and tie on the corners.
1 Once you get your first stripe start with your next one. You will start seeing the stripes appear and then…you will start to fall in love!

To make the chalkboard name tag: Cut the twine, write your message with a chalk marker then tie to the front of the basket.  3 I bought this fluffy blue jean ribbon to add to the front of the basket. I love that it’s a clip. I can take it on and off and use it for other projects! 4 To make the chalkboard -n- denim planter: purchase a chalkboard pot or paint one and grab some denim -n- lace ribbon. Cut a piece and tie around the top of pot!  Grab your chalk marker and write your message on the pot! 5

7 Voila! It’s all done. You now have your magical denim basket to gather your eggs or goodies in.  You know… This would make a GREAT EASTER BASKET.

Michaels has named denim the craft trend of 2015! Denim has always been a wardrobe staple and now it’s emerging in crafts and home décor.

  • If you’re looking for some spring project inspiration, take a look at Michaels’ new Make Market line for DIY project and home décor ideas – all made with simple, on-trend surfaces and textures like chalk, denim, galvanized, burlap and cork.
  • Michaels Makers readers are getting the inside scoop on an upcoming craft contest that will send one lucky participant on the trip of a lifetime to Paris. Check back on my blog March 2 to get all the details on how to enter.

Hope you enjoyed this post! See you in the next one!!! xoxo, jaderbomb


Today I want to show you how I make a Pop Art Shirt. Happy Friday the 13th!!! I am sitting in my studio and it dawned on me that I used to associate this day with “Freddy & Jason” but now I look at it as a spiritual day. Is that strange! Hmmm. I guess whatever works now I will take it and run. Today I wanted to share with you a fun Valentines Day tutorial that I created for I Love to Create. Even though tomorrow is the big V-DAY you can still make this shirt and apply whatever words you want in the boxes! Shoots Easter is coming up and you can use “quack-quack” – or you can draw a chicken.

♥♥Speaking of chickens check out our new silkie NOLA. She will be making TONS of appearances on the blog and I can’t wait to show you. Make sure to come back MONDAY and you will see her DEBUT! She is so excited!
DSC_0547 ♥Make sure to check out these rose earrings I made, I think these look so cute on little girls! Plus they are the BEST kids craft! Also don’t forget to check out my leather HEART SHIRT!

I was so pleased with the outcome of this shirt. I thought I would have to use a stencil to make it perfect but I just put on my big girl panties and went in for the kill. I free handed it all and I believe it came out better because it’s supposed to look whimsical and fun! If you really don’t want to free hand it then I suggest searching google for images, print them out, cut them out and place the image under the shirt. Once you do this all you have to do is use Tulip dimensional paint to fill it all in! How fun. Click on the link below to see my full tutorial on the I Love to Create Blog.

Step 2: Place the plastic rose right on top. If you notice my earring doesn’t completely cover the adhesive tab. I don’t like this because my hair will stick to it and we don’t want that to happen.

Sprinkle a little bit of glitter to the sticky part and your problem is fixed!!!

Howdy HOO! It’s Confetti Monday and I am totally feeling it! I’m not sure if it’s the weather-even though the weather is beautiful today, it’s been so up and down I never know what I will be waking up to! I will say seeing all of my rad friends tackling that freaking blizzard in NY I really do not have much to complain about over her in Louisiana.

My Friend Garrison made me laugh this morning when she posted this on FB…

→→→So my car windows are frozen and it took quite a gentle hand to open the door. Then the car would not start. Finally got it started and still can’t shut the door cuz the window may shatter. So I’m dressed for work, sitting in a frozen car with the seat warmer on freaking out cuz I am late… this is a first.

On the bright side-I cleaned up my studio. It was much needed, trust me! I should of taken before and after photos because it was a HOT MESS! Michaels Craft Store had faith that I could tidy up and wanted me to show you the space I create in. Click on this link to see my FULL studio tour. Come see all of my crafts I created for Michaels as one of their Michaels Makers!

Feel free to share in the comments ways you STAY organized because I am always looking for new ways!! leather polka dot pillow I couldn’t wait to share with you my latest DIY tutorial that I created for the “I Love to Create Blog” – It’s a ball of fun! Plus, you won’t believe what I used to make the faux confetti marks!

Holy Easy Polka Dot Pillow Extravaganza! It’s MLK today and I am sitting at my computer suffering from a terrible abscess in my mouth. Rad right! Thanks to my doc I am all fixed up so I don’t feel any pain! I had a pretty quiet weekend and I honestly think my body needed it. I have been going from one thing to the next for the past few months and it felt really good to just chill out.

We have a few projects going on at home and don’t you worry I will be sharing them on here this week. I am painting our fireplace that is already painted so I am sorta excited to see the end results! It’s already painted a light sage green which isn’t that bad but I want a crisp clean whiten fireplace. Every room in the house is now white which is great because it allows the room to feel open and everything in the room pops! Don’t worry I might change my mind next week, that is usually how I roll!

Also we are adding another room onto the back of our house so I can’t wait to show you the things we are doing to that space! I have been wanting to do some polka dot leather pillows for a while now but since I have been so busy with the holidays I could never tackle this project. It’s an easy project but very tedious.  Don’t forget to check out my STUDIO TOUR! Also I was unable to attend CHA this year but yesterday I received a HUGE box filled with goodies from Fave Crafts so I will be posting about all of the items in there!

…now let’s get to the nitty gritty

Easy Polka Dot Pillow

You will need: Fabric Pillow Cases | Fabric Fusion | Leather | Scissors 

You can purchase all of the items I used by clicking on the links! They are affiliate links so by ordering from me you are helping support my GLITTER habit! XOXO
how to make pillows

Step 1: Get a sheet of fabric fusion and peel off one side. This stuff is seriously amazing! If you do not like to sew you can use this product and it works so good! no sew pillow cases

Step 2: Place the sticky side down onto the back side of your leather.  leather crafts

Step 3: Get a stencil of circles, I am using my favorite which is by Stencil 1. Order it here. If you don’t have access to a stencil you can find something round use that to trace around.  stencil 1 stencil

Step 4: Place your stencil on top of the fabric fusion and trace out your circles with a sharpie.
how to use a stencil

Step 5: This is what it will look like once you are done. I used a pen instead of a sharpie.  how to cut leather

Step 6: Once you are done tracing carefully cut out each circle! Have fun with this part! hehe leather circles

Step 7: Peel off the white sheet on the back of the leather circles and place them where you want on the pillows. I didn’t measure mine out with a ruler I just eyeballed it.

Love you all my little craft bugs! Huge bursts of happy energy sent from me to YOU right through this screen! I hope this post allows your imagination to go bonkers and you create loads of leather goodies! See you in the next post.

Happy Monday Jaderbugs!!! Lately I have been on a pom pom phase and I am honestly not quite sure why. So today I will be showing you how to make a Pom Pom Mirror.

Maybe it’s because when I pull out the craft supplies I used as a kid it makes me feel super giddy inside. The other night I posted a picture of some pom pom’s and asked my followers what was the first thing they thought of when they looked at them.  I was quite shocked at the responses and I just have to share them with you.  Here are some!
* Star Trek….tribbles
* Pom-poms on the back of ankle socks … “Booties”
* Sesame Street
* Will Farrell eating cotton balls in elf
* I spilled my craft supplies again
* Clowns
* Getting me a pair of white Keds and hot gluing these to them
* Kindergarten
* Craft projects
* Popples! Now that’s ole school!

These are just SOME of the responses and I loved all of them! This DIY is super easy and anyone can do them. Let’s get started!

Pom Pom Mirror

You need a few ingredients for this DIY.
* Colorful Pom Poms
* Old Mirror
* Hot Glue Gun
colorful pom poms

The good news is at the craft stores you can buy these pons pons in bags of rainbow colors or you can get plain colors, depending on the look and style you are going with!  pom pom mirror

Are you freaking in love yet. Now I totally get that not EVERYONE will love this but I do and that is all that matters. You could do one with all white pom pons and you would be surprised at how soft and elegant it would look!

On another note, kids love pom poms and I promise you kids will LOVE doing this DIY! diy mirror

I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy tutorial. Stay tuned, tomorrow I will be sharing a super unique tutorial for you. All I will say is there will be LEATHER!!!

See you in the next post!

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)
rainbow glass jars

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!
glitter jars

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

Don’t you feel super happy looking at these babies! They will surely hang all year in my studio!
