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.

Ya know this craft is perfect for grown adults (who simply are finding anything to bring them back to their younger years,yo) or itty bitty kiddos. You could kill 2 birds with 1 stone and do them WITH your kiddos!

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. I mean, you can put numbers on your mugs so you can count how many cups you drink in a day right!

Remember a while back when I posted this picture below? Remember how stressed I was trying to figure out what to do with this odd little piece of wood? I received ton’s of advice on what I should and shouldn’t do. So much advice that I got completely distracted all over again and could not make up my mind.

Like, who else freaks out about stuff like this? I feel like I need a stump to sit on and “think” when I have to make design decisions. After staying up many nights (not really) I finally decided to trust my bestie Martha. She always knows what do to. Come see what I ended up doing.

Learn how to Stenci - www.jaderbomb.com

Initially I painted the wood with black chalk paint. I wanted a whimsical space where I could write positive notes on. Yeah, not so much once it was there.

It’s obvious I love anything with chalk. Check out what I did to my fridge. I also made some rad chalk labels. In today’s project you will learn how to Stencil.

I used Martha Stewarts Geometric Patterns Laser Cut Stencils. They are super easy to use and affordable, at a low price of $16.99. I like things like this because it will not break the bank and you can always paint over it when you get tired of looking at it.

“Use stencils to create beautiful painted designs on fabric, wood, glass and other surfaces. Contains 3 laser cut stencils 8 3/4in x 16 3/4in, 12 designs, and instructions”.

Correct way to use stencils - Jaderbomb You will simply lay the stencil down on any surface, grab a sponge and lightly sponge on top of the stencil. I am very ocd so after every application I would wash the stencil and pat it dry. When you move onto the the next section just take one row and lay it on top of the last one you painted.

This will line up the stencil pattern. Once you are done stenciling your entire surface, let it dry for 24 hours. When dry apply a layer of Mod Podge on top. Let it dry completely and apply a second coat.

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.

Well hello you cute little Black and White Striped Fridge!

I was wondering why I keet going back to the fridge lately but maybe i’t's the stripes! I’ve never been more excited to get eggs and milk than I am now!

Oh and stripes makes all the food inside taste better, hehe. Let’s get started! BLACKANDWHITEICEBOX

YOUWILLNEED *Scissors * Sharpie * Ruler * Dry Erase Laminate *Chalkboard Laminate 
dryeraseandchalkboardlaminate The first thing you want to do is layout your adhesive paper. I love this paper because you can simply peel the back off and voila!  duckbranddryerasefilm

Once your paper is flat on a table grab a ruler and place it on the side of sheet. You will see on the sides of the paper (on the back) that there are lines already there for you. I placed the ruler on the second main line. It made my lines about 2 inches wide.  dryeraseducktape While your ruler is down grab your sharpie and trace over the line. This will just make it easier to cut. If you feel secure cutting the line that is already there then you don’t need to use sharpie.

Are you in love yet?  stripedfridge I love drawing on each line. The great thing is this will not damage your fridge at all! You can peel it all off whenever you want.

12 Home Organizing Tips

Today it’s all about organization and I put together my favorite “12 Home Organizing Tips” so let’s check them out.

I don’t know about you but my daily life is so hectic that someday’s things get thrown all over the dang place. I don’t mean a little bit of stuff. Right now as I type this I have 3 purses filled with “stuff” sitting in the dining room. I have more receipts than lipgloss and who knows what else is in there. The other day I bought some Laura Mercier lip gloss (not the cheap stuff) and when I finally pulled it out of my purse it had chocolate stuck to it.

Wait, I said stuck. I meant stuck ALL OVER it. Also, as I write this my laptop cord is M.I.A. and not to mention it just took me 30 minutes to find the laptop that goes with the missing cord. Now I am prolly giving you this visual that I am a hoarder but I am not. Well sorta, but I am very ocd and everything is in it’s perfect place.

I think what happens is things get moved into different rooms and spots so much that sometimes it feels like they literally walk away. Yes, I said it. WALK AWAY.

So as I take a bow (and look between my legs for the cord) here are my 12 ways to organize my home your home.

Enjoy this round up of Black and White Kitchens . Don’t worry if you feel like these pictures are unattainable because the fact is you can take one or two things from each picture and that will make your space feel completely different! I never look at a picture and try to replicate it because that would not represent me and my style! Make an inspiration board on pinterest and document small things you like about each room. You will always have that to go back to. Make sure to follow my black and white board or follow all of my amazing boards!

Lately I have been loosing my mind and making everyone around me crazy. If you know me then you KNOW how much I love color. I am a bright & eclectic person and my house typically reflects that. Until a few months ago. I got really tired of seeing color. Maybe it’s because my new studio space is filled with loads of color and I practically live in there. So slowly I have been transforming every room in our house to black & white. It’s clean and crisp and I can still add pops of color here and there without having to paint a wall. You know how they say your taste buds change every 7 years, well maybe mine are changing. Yes I am referring to taste as in style! We are also doing lot’s of renovations in our home so stay tuned!

Happy Sunday Y’all! I took a break today and my friend Deb’s will show you how she made her “Candy Corn Banner”. It’s super cute and I know you will just swoon over it. I am super excited today because Martha Stewart featured my candy corn lamp on her website.

Candy Corn Banner

you will need

1/4 yd of yellow felt
1/4 yd of orange felt
1/4 yd of white or off white felt (I used off white)
2 yds black medium ric rac or other ribbon
1 small bottle of black dimensional fabric paint
Fabric scissors and paper scissors
2 pieces of cardboard (can use a cereal box or manilla folder)
Pen or marker tape
Candy Corn Template Candy Corn Template

 

CANDY CORN SUPPLIES

  1. Print the candy corn template to be about 7″x5.25″
  2. Trace and cut out two candy corn shapes on cardboard (cardboard is sturdier to draw around over the felt). Leave one template whole and cut the other into thirds as shown in the pic.
  3. Trace around cut templates on felt until you have four felt candy corns in each color for a total of twelve (Even though my banner was only 11 pieces I used an extra candy corn to write “or” on).
  4. Lay out the shapes alternating colors as shown to form the candy corns.
  5. Use tape to attach candy corns together from the back (you can also sew them together with a zigzag stitch).]
  6. Glue or sew on the ric rac along the tops, connecting them all side by side to create the banner.
  7. Write T-r-i-c-k- or T-r-e-a-t with the dimensional paint, let dry and then display on wall or in doorway.
  8. Note: you can also make these from card stock or if you want to display your banner outdoors, you can use vinyl/waterproof fabric.

DIY CANDY CORN BANNER FALL

I got the felt from Joann’s. It was reg $4.99 per yd on sale for 40% off and I only purchased 1/4 yd of each colour (felt squares may cost a bit more). Since I already had the dimensional paint and tape, the entire project cost less than $5! I hope you enjoyed my craft! You never know, you might see more of me on here! XOXO, DEBS
