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.

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

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?

Today it’s all about Glow in the Dark Pumpkins. I have always loved Halloween so I figured I would get a little creative with my pumpkin decor. I don’t know about you but I am over carving pumpkins, which is why I resort to artificial ones.

It’s 20 fabulous ways to decorate your pumpkins!

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!

DSC_0380 This month’s theme for Michaels Makers is Fall Home Decor. Fall is my favorite because the weather is changing, the leaves on the trees are changing, even food tastes better. Today I will show you how to dress up your table with a punch of Fall, surely this will make all of your guests excited! All of the materials I am using today come from Michaels. I hope you enjoy it!

YOU WILL NEED: GLASS PLATTER | SHARPIE | PAPER FLAGS (OPTIONAL) | TIM HOLTZ KNOBS | CHALK BOARD SPRAY PAINT | LACE ADHESIVE STICKERS | E6000 | TAPE | MARTHA STEWART PUMPKIN SLEEVES

DSC_0355 These pumpkins come in different colors so you don’t have to spend time painting them, my kinda pumpkin. They are on sale right now at Michaels so go grab a few. You can do so many different things with these pumpkins. The best part of these pumpkins is they will never rot! So you can bedazzle your hearts away and save them for next year.
DSC_0357 These Martha Stewart pumpkin sleeves are phenomenal. They are made from a stretchy mesh material that can cover a pumpkin in no time. The best part is you can take the sleeve off when you get tired of it, leaving you with a blank canvas! DSC_0358 I love the lace design on this pumpkin sleeve.
DSC_0359 To make our chalkboard pumpkin, tape off the top part of your pumpkin. I am using tape from Martha Stewarts line.  DSC_0364 Once you have it taped off you can spray paint the bottom portion of your pumpkin with chalk board spray. Make sure you do this in a well ventilated spot. DSC_0367 Add some E-6000 to the top of your pumpkin and place the knob on the top of it. This will make your pumpkin look a very classy. DSC_0370 On one of your plain pumpkins we will apply these lace removable stickers to them. It adds a pop of class to them.  DSC_0360 DSC_0361 I am placing these adhesive dots on top of each lace sticker. The great thing is you can purchase these in multiple colors. Did I mention this whole sheet is only $1.  DSC_0372 On your chalkboard pumpkin, grab your Sharpie and write whatever inspires you on the top portion. This is a great time to grab your favorite quote or poem. Don’t forget to grab some chalk for the bottom part.  DSC_0375 DSC_0379 DSC_0380 DSC_0381 DSC_0382

Today we are getting all urban country making a Stencil 1- Deer Stencil Table Liner using my best friend Ed Roth’s banging stencil line.

Check out these rainbow coasters I made using some of his stencils with Plaid! OH WAIT: Check out this ginormous yarn bombed deer that will stare at you till you are blue in the face. Literally.

Ed Roth Stencil 1_jaderbomb

Not only does he have the cutest face on the planet but he gives the best hugs in the world.

Now if you know me then you know I live in the South, specifically Louisiana which means everyone here loves a good deer in their life. I sometimes pretend I am living in New York with the sounds of horrific traffic in the background and the only chance I will see any deer is by using a stencil like this. I guess I’m not the kinda girl who likes to eat them or hang them on my wall as “decor” but more power to those that do. Today I am showing you how to use this stencil in a spectacular way. So put on your boots because we about to get COUNTRY, urban country that is. On another note check out this business that really is called “Urban Country”. It’s legit.


 Stencil1 has collaborated on DIY events with high-profile brands, like The Gap, Converse, Sharpie, and Etsy, to engage their customers and grow their base through interactive, creative, hands-on experience. Ed is an engaging host who knows his stuff and is equally comfortable in front of a crowd and a camera.

Stencil 1- Deer Stencil Table Liner

YOUWILLNEED Ed Roth Deer Stencil // Book // Craft Paint // Glitter // Craft Knife // Scissors // Tape // Pouncer // Fiskars Paper Punch
DSC_0015
Step ONE: 
Tear out a few pages from a book. You can use any book that you have laying around but for some reason I always crafts with pages from Twilight. I guess I am still a die hard fan. Yes. I still dream of turning into diamonds like Edward did. Go ahead, judge.

You can rip the pages out or use your crafting knife to get a nice fine line. If you don’t have one just grab your trusty pair of scissors.

Step TWO: Get your paper punch and punch those pages till they can’t be punched anymore. Notice I am only doing the sides of the sheet. It’s kinda like edging your hairline or your yard. I think. I don’t edge either of those so it’s just a guess.

Step THREE: Line the pages up on top of each other and tape them down on the back side.

book page paper punch
Step FOUR: Grab your deer stencil and place it on the bottom of your “book sheet table liner”. Grab your dauber and pounce your little heart out with your color of choice.Continue doing this until your get to the end of your liner.  I liked the masculine look of orange or I just thought it’s was sorta “Urban Country” looking. While your paint is still wet sprinkle a little bit of glitter on top and let it dry till the cows come home. That is about 20 minutes.

Or if you are impatient like me you could blow dry that baby.

raw-bar-header

 Burlap Canvas Display As part of the Michael’s Makers team I will be creating crafty challenges each month. The challenge this month was to choose a product from the raw bar and and I chose the burlap stretched canvas to create a  Burlap Canvas Display.

Next month Michaels Stores is releasing a new line of products called Raw Bar and guess who got a little sneak peek, ME! I can’t wait for you to see this line so be on the lookout starting on August 8th because it will be available in all Michaels stores nationwide.  Michaels created the Raw Bar because customers requested raw surfaces that are unfinished and easily craft-able.

The Raw Bar is made by materials that are completely inspired by nature and some of the surfaces include wood, metal, canvas, chalkboard, cork, and burlap. Are you in mad love yet?

You will need:
♥Canvas Burlap
♥Cork Ribbon
♥Chalkboard Spray Paint
♥Miniature Easel
♥Wooden Spools
♥Twine
♥Scissors
♥Glue Gun
DSC_0482

I know what you are thinking when you see this cork ribbon, “where has this been my whole life”… I will say it’s not thick enough to stick a tack through and hold something up but it’s very pliable and easy to work with. It’s truly the perfect “natural” touch to add to any craft you are working on! DSC_0479

I purchased this miniature easel from Michaels and they are so precious.  DSC_0485

Step ONE ♥ Spray paint your easel and wooden spools. You might have to spray one side and wait for it to dry before you move on to coat the rest.
DSC_0486

Step TWO  ♥ Once your wooden spools are dry you can add a dab of hot glue to one side of the spool.  DSC_0489

Step THREE  ♥ Carefully place the wooden spools on the top two corners of your canvas. These can be used merely for decoration or you can hang trinkets from them. Very versatile.  DSC_0487

I love the contrast of the black chalk paint against the burlap canvas. It’s very natural and shabby chic.  DSC_0491

Step FOUR ♥ Tear off a piece of cork ribbon. You will flip when you feel how awesome this ribbon is. I can see little girls already with cork bows in their beautiful hair.  DSC_0496

Step FIVE ♥ Once you cut a decent length of ribbon off of the roll, you will fold it up a few times like below. You will then get your scissors and cut directly in the middle.  DSC_0497

Step SIX ♥ Turn your burlap canvas over and place your cork ribbon along the back side to figure our how long or short you want your hanger to be.  DSC_0498

Step SEVEN ♥ Once you decide on the length of your ribbon add a line of hot glue down the back side of your canvas and quickly place the ribbon on top of it. Careful not to burn yourself! Or if you do just yell really loud and you will feel MUCH better!  DSC_0500

This is what your canvas will look like once you are done with the ribbon.  DSC_0501

Step EIGHT ♥ Make sure your easel is sprayed completely with the chalkboard spray and once it’s dry add hot glue to the back side of the easel.  DSC_0502

Step NINE ♥ Place the easel directly in the middle of the canvas. How cute is this! DSC_0505

Step TEN ♥ This is optional but I added a little clothespin that is a part of the line at the very top of the easel. I’ll tell ya, hot glue is like magic ♥

Now we can hang things from the spools, clip something with the clothespin or open up the easel and place a picture or anything that makes you happy on it.  DSC_0507

DSC_0510

DSC_0511

I think this would be so cute in a bathroom, bedroom, office space or in a spot where you want to display cute things.  burlap canvas display

Duck Tape Organizing Caddy I don’t know about you but I absolutely love mini organizing stations. Sometimes a good one can be hard to come by which is why today I am going to show you an easy way to create a duck tape organizing caddy. One that can go in any space,literally. The one thing I love about this caddy is you can choose the exact design or color of Duck Tape that you want! You can use this for a craft station, wrapping station, art station or a toy station. Let’s get started!

You will need:
Wooden Stool ( I am using a natural color but you can paint them if you want)
Duck Tape (your choice of color)
Fiskars Non Stick Scissors
Trash Bag (any color)

DIY CADDY

duck tape caddy The great thing about this crafts is choosing the colors you want! The Duck brand has so many options now I am certain you will not get stuck in that department.

I will tell you if you are a duck tape fan these scissors are a must. They glide through the tape without sticking and we all know that makes our crafting a dream come true. Fiskars created these scissors specifically for The Duck Brand. They come in two different sizes and you won’t regret getting both sizes!

duck edition fiskars scissors

DIY VINTAGE BOTTLE LABELS Step 1: Cut the sides of your trash bag and lay it out on a flat surface.
Step 2: Lay your stool on it’s side. It does not matter which side you work with initially.
Step 3: Grab a marker and trace out the “inside” of the side section.
Step 4: Reverse the stool and trace the same section like below.
Step 5: Cover the entire section of your outline with duck tape. It’s ok if the tape runs over the outlines.  DSC_0958 This is what it will look like when it’s done completely filled.

duck tape crafts Step 6: Flip your trash bag over. You will still see your sharpie line even when flipped over. Kinda cool huh! duck tape crafts Step 7: Grab your Fiskars duck edition scissors and cut along the lines.   duck tape pouch

duck tape fashion Step 8: Fold your cut out in half. This is the start of a bag that will hang on the stool.
bags made with duck tape
Step 9: Place a strip of duck tape along the side of the bag leaving enough hanging over the edge to fold on the other side.  duck tape bag

Step 10: Cut off the excess along the “bottom” of the bag. DO NOT cut the top pieces off.
fiskars duck edition scissors
These are the top straps. Because there is some sticky tape exposed we will use this to hang the bag onto the stool.  plastic bag crafts hanging basket diy

If you want to make a large bag do the same thing. Lay the stool out sideways and trace out the top and bottom section, twice.  stool ideas Fill in the space like you did earlier for the small bag. how to make a bag Cut out your pieces making sure to not cut the sections in half. We want this bag to be long! We are doing the same steps as we did for the small bag. Pretty simple ey! duck tape fashion crafts
Place one piece on top of the other. If you have any piece that looks too long you can trim it now.
decorative duck tape
Tape up the sides and bottom, trimming the excess when done. For this bag I cut the top straps because I will show you how to make your own straps.  patterned duck tape bags
To make the straps take a strip of duck tape and cut it in half. You can just place these on the back side of a bag you make then attach it to a bar on your stool. Once you get going on these bags they will get easier and easier.

You can spice up your bag by adding a strip of duck tape along the bottom. Take a strip fold the top part down a little then adhere it to the bag with the sticky part.
