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

*Hot Glue Gun

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

DIY Glittered Acorns are on the menu today. I found this little bag of acorns and miniature pinecones at Michaels and I had to pick up a few of them. Call it an addiction but anything “little” has to come home with me!

Now they were simply perfect with it’s natural colors in the bag but I wanted to add a little flare to them, so I added glitter! You can never go wrong with glitter.

If you love to decorate for Fall this is the perfect accent to your decor. You can sprinkle them around your pumpkins, put them in bowls or eat them. Either way they will work out fine for you! Let’s get started. DSC_0426 You will need: Bag of Pinecones and Acorns | Glitter | Decoupage  Brush
You can purchase all of the items used in this post by clicking on the links above. These are affiliate links so thanks for helping me purchase more acorns and glitter, yo!  DSC_0406 Step One: Lay out your goodies and stare at them for a minute. Worship them because they are simply that adorable.
DSC_0407 Step Two: Grab the glitter of your choice and shake them like a salt shaker. Preferably on top of your head. I am using Martha Stewart glitter in Florentine Gold & Wintermint.  DSC_0410 Step Three: Get your bottle of decoupage and roll it on a flat surface to wake it up. We need to make sure everything is mixed together well inside of the container.  DSC_0411 Step Four: Apply a small amount of decoupage on your brush and add it to your acorns and pinecones. While wet sprinkle a little glitter over the glue. Hint: I like to place a sheet of paper under my items to catch the glitter, then I can pour it back into the bottle.

Just like saving whales, we need to save the glitter.  DSC_0416 DSC_0420
DSC_0427 DSC_0428 I love the way they came out. Did I mention this is the perfect craft to have your kids do? Seriously it takes about 10 minutes to do them and it dries really fast. I think I will make rainbow ones next. What cha think! See ya in the next post Jaderbugs!

Yippe Ki Yay! I wanted to make something that you could drink out of or put on your desk! These Glittered Mugs will totally make your heart melt and it’s the perfect gift to give someone. Let’s get started!

Glittered Mugs YOUWILLNEED

Glitter tray and rack | Patterning tape | Heart Glitter | Mugs | Brush | Decoupage glittered mug supplies
If you have not seen this amazing glitter then you are about to flip out. These are so stinking cute right. It’s baby heart that shine like stars in the sky. I chose these two colors because I thought they went nicely together. aa The first thing you will do is put tape around the mug. I wanted to add glitter on the bottom half so I simply put tape in the middle of the mug.  how to use stenciling tape
In today’s project we will be using a gloss decoupage. I love this product because when it dries, it dries clear and so beautiful.  how to write on mugs I am loving this new glitter rack and tray. It is great way to trap the glitter and when you are done you can pour it back into the glitter tube. The great thing is on the corner of the tray there is a tray that has a little hole on it making it easy to remove the glitter without a huge mess.

You will lay your mug on top of the tray and coat a section with decoupage then immediately sprinkle the heart glitter all over it. glittered mugs
We will also embellish our mugs with miniature love notebooks. I am in LOVE with these. You can really write in them! how to make glittered mugs

Apply another coat of decoupage then put a layer of glitter again.  shiny gold mugs I added some dirt in the mugs and added a few plants in them. These would look great on a desk or a nice gift. how to make a mug planter

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.

Today I will show you how to Decorate Paper Bags.

Well from what I gather it is almost Halloween around this joint. This means I get to display my favorite color everywhere in the house! Black that is.

I have to admit being the “DIY’ER” that I am sometimes crafts come to me and I just quickly make them. If they are good then they get posted. No lie, this was not planned but I just think it’s practical and can be used for many things in your life.

Sometimes I go through a period of doing fairly simple tutorials and then I do really complicated ones that require ton’s of pictures. Not sure why I do that but I do.

This one would surely fall under EASY!

Have you seen my Halloween Coffee Party yet?

What about my Vintage Crow Magazine Holder!

Decorate Paper Bags

 It is honestly a craft that you would add your own imagination too so have fun with it. I made a quick video for you also.

With Halloween right around the corner I wanted to share with you a site that you will fall in love with. I Love to Create has created a site that is filled with great Halloween inspiration.

For me I love this because when I start searching for ideas based around a specific holiday I like when everything is at my fingertips.

Pretty much like this site.

There are 5 different categories on the Halloween inspiration page. Pumpkins, Party & Decor,Body Art, T-Shirts and Totes and Costumes.

I honestly want to create every single thing on this site because for one they are fun to look at and two, the instructions for each craft are great which means nearly anyone can make them.

bad-to-the-bone-skull-shirt I want to share my favorite projects. This is actually hard for me to decide on but I promise to do my best!

FYI: When you see a category on the site make sure to click “more projects” to the right of the category. This will pull up all of the tutorials. I would just hate to see you miss out on this part!

PUMPKINS: Hardcore Pumpkin

Even if you’re not in the mood for carving and cleaning, you can still make some hardcore Halloween pumpkins this season! Washers, chains and other hardware make for an easy, inexpensive way to give your pumpkins an edgy new look.

I love things that look industrial. The white pumpkins looks so classy to me. I would probably choose this over diamonds!

Party and Decor:Haunted Silouette Pillow

When it comes to displaying drab Halloween décor, vow to yourself, “nevermore”! Create this hauntingly haute pillow featuring Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” easily with a black fabric marker and a little bit of paint.

I love ravens and this pillow makes me super excited. I like the look of anything handwritten and then you slap a good old bird on it. VOILA!

Costumes:Wicked Kicks

Follow the road to creativity in a sparkly set of shoes! No need to make a wish for kicks this fabulous, all you need is a little creativity, some glue and a lot of sparkly gems.

I will end this with my favorite craft! I love red and I love glitter so how can you go wrong with this? There is only ONE problem. I would wear these all year long.

Whoa! It’s already flipping Friday. I can’t be the only person who wakes up on a Friday morning to realize the whole week flew by. I am usually lost as to what day it is and I can thank working from home for that. My birthday was two days ago and I am still getting so much love and support from the post I wrote. If you did not hear the big news I suggest reading it. I feel like I did when I was a senior in high school, 105 pounds. I mean, I don’t weigh that now but that is how much weight I feel is lifted. Poo Yi, that’s a lot huh! On to my DIY post of the day.

Today I will be showing you how to make washi tape magnets. This tutorial is so stinking easy you could do it in your sleep. Eh, not really but you get it. Let’s get it Jaderbugs! Check out my Spotify playlist that I listened to while working on this post!

washi tape magnets

I am very happy with they way they turned out. Personally I love putting everything on my fridge so I can never have enough magnets. The best part is you can use any color paper, fabric, glitter or tissue paper. It’s all up to you. I will be putting some up in my ETSY shop soon just in case you don’t have the materials to make or if you just don’t feel like making them. You should check out all of my new items that I just listed. Super cute!

you will need

Sticky Magnet Scissors | Glitter Ribbon

You can use any shade of ribbon that you like. The fun part is you can mix up your colors and have a variety on your fridge. Don’t stop on the fridge put these babies on your filing cabinet or on your face. I mean I don’t know about you but I am pretty magnetic. (shaking head here because I am ridiculous)

washi tape magnets

You can get these magnetic sheets anywhere. Seriously I bet the Dollar Store even has them but incase they don’t we can always depend on the trusty ole Wal-Mart. Kuddos Sam.

washi tape magnets

Get your ribbon and hold it in your hand. Observe each little glitter flake so you can feel really close to them. Tell them a story and maybe take them out for a walk, on a leash.

washi tape magnets

Peel the white sheet off of your magnetic sheet and just stick pieces of ribbon down. The magnet will be super sticky so no need for any glue. This is s perfect craft for kiddo’s too.

And there ya have it Jaderbugs. Your very own Washi Tape Magnets.  Who woulda ever thunk it. If this is something you personally don’t like I bet SOMEONE you know would love to get them. Pinky Promise!

 Welp, that’s it. That is all the goodness I have for you today. Off to putting cubes of ice down my back cause it’s hot as hell here in Louisiana! See you in the next post!

Happy Saturday everyone. I have been so excited lately with fun things and I can’t wait to share them all with you. I figured I would space things out so you are not overloaded with it all, right! I am always so thankful to all of you that come here daily and support me. I often think about everything that has happened in my life and quickly freak out.  When I say freak out that usually means dancing on the spot and making weird faces. Ok enough mushy talk let’s get to business.

Today we are making something really unique and awesome. Homemade stickers using a Xyron sticker maker. . I know what you are thinking, why make them when you could buy them. I thought the same thing until I experienced this sucker. Last year at CHA  I got this and I don’t think I realized at the time how much it would impact my life. Haha, that is funny! Let’s get started.  homemade stickers

 

 

ingredients

 

Xyron Sticker Maker | Scissors | Ribbon

Did I mention you can use any kind of ribbon that you like. I swear it’s the coolest thing. I wish I had 10 more because it’s amazing when you are crafting.

homemade stickers

The first thing you will do is cut a strip of ribbon. Start off with a small piece just to get the hang of it. I promise its easy.

homemade stickers

Place the ribbon like this in the sticker maker. Make sure the good side faces upward.

homemade stickers

Pull the sheet at the bottom.

Once all of your ribbon is out tear the paper. The ribbon will now be in the middle of a white piece of paper and a clear film. Take the clear film off then peel the ribbon off. It’s really that easy. The underside of the ribbon will have a sticky film on it and you will be able to put the sticker wherever your little heart desires.

I love sealing little bags with them. It makes things so personal and FUN!

Quote of the day:
God, grant me he power to get out of the shower – Monica Sheehan

Happy Happy Thursday! I could of sworn I just said in a post I can’t wait till Friday. Who would’a thunk it would get here so fast? Surely not me.  I think you know by now I love glitter. I swear, I have inhaled so much in my lifetime I believe it’s running through my veins. How cool would that be if everyone had a different color of glitter inside of them!

I bought this tape dispenser at Target the other day because I truly needed one. I think that is the ONE thing I never bought in my entire life. Can you believe that? Of course it was kinda boring so I figured what better way to “dress” it up!

Have you seen my Mexican Folk art plates? Click HERE to check them out!

INGREDIENTS: 

Tape Dispenser
Martha Stewart glittering glue
Martha Stewart glitter
Martha Stewart craft brushes
Martha Stewart glittering tray
Mod Podge
*happy thoughts which will create happy designs
(at least that is what jaderbomb thinks) 

 What I did first was apply Mod Podge in certain sections with my craft brush then sprinkle glitter on top. I did this step to get my “background” glitter down. The background is the biggest sections on your tape dispenser. Let it dry. Once it is dry I used my glittering glue to draw my designs. The great thing about this glue is the tip. It is tapered so you can really “draw” things accurately with it. I like to do one color of glitter at a time, let it dry then move onto the next design. I did the pink first, then the purple and last my designs incase you were wondering. That’s it Jaderbugs!  I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and I can’t WAIT to see you in the next post!

p.s. I have some fun FALL things coming up so make sure and check back in with #teamjaderbomb
