I am totally in love with this cute arm knit cowl scarf – I love this thing so much and I think I need about 10 of them! HINT HINT (Maybe one in every color of the rainbow….)

Learn how to make an awesome beaded necklace chain that is absolutely gorgeous. Yes, I totally need 2 of these hanging around my neck. Just think you can put glitter or small mementos in this baby too!

Mark’s fabric plant is one that even I keep looking fresh and happy! I think paper flowers and plants add a BOHO whimsical feel to any space and FYI these are great for any kid’s room!

Cathy’s Miu Miu inspired top is so great! I wonder what this would look like with red, yellow and blue! This is great for all ages!

Aunt Peaches upcycles some bright Mardi Gras beads into a stunning mosaic. She won my heart with this craft since I am from good ole Louisiana! REPRESENT!

I made a  trendy denim craft project as part of my Michaels Makers series! Yes this is a line of stuff that you HAVE to check out at Michaels!

You also need to check out this painted Leopard Bag! I can just visualize this in SO MANY COLORS! I also think this would be a GREAT kids project!

HUGE HUGS! XOXO, Jaderbomb ♥

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

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!

Get your black light’s out cause are about to have a party with these Neon Tree Ornaments! Remember when I made this neon pumpkin! It was a HIT… So I figured I would make another NEON HIT with these cute neon ornaments.

Let me tell you before I start that this was an accidental project. I found these neon “things” one day when I was shopping in Michaels. I thought they were really cool and figured they would look good in a vase in my my studio. Then one day I looked at them and realized they looked like mini trees. BAM! That is how a project usually happens for me. Right brain for sho! Just thought I would share that with ya franssss!

Let’s get started.
neon tree ornaments You will need: Neon Fluffy Pipe Cleaners (I got these from Michaels) | Scissors | Mod Podge Collage Clay in White | Brush | Shiny Glitter | Pliers | Clear Ornaments
neon tree supplies diy christmas crafts After you spread out your collage clay inside of your ornament grab your pliers and carefully place your mini neon trees inside. They will sit right in the middle of that white gooey pile of collage clay and once it’s dry your trees are good to go.

I love collage clay! If you have never used it I suggest getting your hands dirty and grab some from your local craft store. This stuff here is literally like icing on top of the cake. You can spread this stuff out on any surface, drop in glitter, jewels, trinkets then VOILA! Let it sit for a hot minute (that means a few hours) and everything is secured in place.

Is your brain going nuts now? I can’t stop thinking about all the things I can do with this! orange tree ornaments neon christmas decorations diy christmas ornamtents neon colorfu;l ornaments I hope you enjoyed this tutorial from the bottom of my little ole heart! Huge glittery hugs from my computer screen all the way to YOU! xoxo, JADE

in other news I will be in Anaheim CA for the Craft and Hobby Association conference in January! I am super exited and all I will tell you is I will be doing some make -n- takes at a certain book and an appearance! I can’t wait to see all of my virtual friends there so make sure to look for the glittery girl giving out glitter bomb wishes!! xoxo

Remember when I did demos for Plaid, check out this video (don’t mind my thick accent) HEHE

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

pictures of pumpkins

…YOU WILL NEED: GILDING SHEETS | GILDING BRUSH | GILDING ADHESIVE | GILDING GLOVES | PUMPKIN (FAKE OR REAL)

Don’t forget, you can order all of these supplies by clicking on the links above! These are affiliate links so by doing this you are helping me buy more glitter and fairy dust! *Mucho LOVE

pumpkin supplies

STEP ONE…
Put gilding adhesive into a bowl

pumpkin pictures STEP TWO…
Apply a think coat of adhesive onto your pumpkin

halloween decor STEP THREE…
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.

pumpkin decorating ideas STEP FIVE…
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?

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!

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
