Hey there! Join me on Instagram and Pinterest to keep up with my most recent projects and sneak peeks! Plus you will get bombed with loads of bright, whimsical and inspiring pics! It’s like an open invitation to the BIGGEST craft party in the world! Have you seen these glitter projects I made?

Today the topic of “convo-sa-chion” (say it like you are in fraannce) is Henna Inspired Body Tattoos. Now I know what you are thinking. Who in the world really wants to parade around wearing a fake tattoo, let alone one completely saturated with glitter… Well folks you are looking at her – or her screen. I am also certain there are TONS of people out there who would like to do this for a fun occasion, birthday party, concert or just a fun weekend out and about. Let’s not forget the KIDS!!!

These are not meant to fool people, y’all! It’s meant for PURE FUN. When I Love to Create sent me this pack I got super giddy inside. Don’t get me wrong I love all the ones they send me but the “henna” inspired pack won over my heart. Check out this really cool blog centered around “Henna”…

Henna Inspired Body Tattoos You are totally getting excited already huh! Buy YO KIT HERE! I love all of the stencils you get in the package. Just imagine an arm with ALL of them!

0046986_tulip-body-art-glitter-tattoo-kit-henna

  • Nontoxic and cosmetic grade
  • Glitter tattoo lasts up to 5 days with proper body care
  • It’s only $19.99!!!

P to the S… All the the items in the picture below come wrapped up nice and neatly when you buy it. I mean why would they come messy?! (Insert an eye roll to myself) temporary body tattoo

Step ONE: First things first I’m the realist. You will need to figure out where you want to put your dazzling tattoo.  how to do henna Step TWO: Make sure to flatten your adhesive sheet onto you skin. We don’t want any wrinkles now do we!

If you notice I have this baby wrapped all the way around my arm and it shows no sign of coming off. The sheets are super sticky so they will conform to any part of the body, even those hard to get spots. (I feel like that last sentence is from a commercial but I can’t think of what. Leave a comment below if you know!) henna paints Step THREE: Apply the body glue over the spots where you will be putting the yummy glitter. I know I don’t have a darn picture of me applying the glue. Shame on me, hehe! Let me warn you now, this glue is really strong, it’s cosmetic grade!

Step FOUR: Time to grab the small detailing brush and start splashing or dabbing glitter all over your glue. You will see once you start applying glitter how great it works.

(Let me just tell you this…I tried to rinse my tattoo off a few hours later with soap and water and it would not come off! I literally had to scrub my arm. So it’s good if you want it for a few days)

If you plan on doing this on small kids you could use a little alcohol  to help get it off.

how long does henna stay on Step FIVE: Once you applied the glitter time to gently pull off your adhesive sheet. Please take your time, I’d hate for you to tear your beautiful sheet.

Next, brush off the excess glitter with your large dusting brush. VOILA Y’ALL!  GLITTER TATTOOS HENNA TATTOO  I hope you enjoyed this fun tutorial. Please stay tuned this week I have some fun projects lined up! You can’t lie these glitter tattoos are calling your name! I knowwwww….

Big ole CAJUN hugs from my computer to yours!!!

Michaels is celebrating every occasion this summer with gifts for Moms, Dads and teachers, and parties to celebrate birthdays, graduation, and the 4th of July! Today it’s all about Graduation Party Decor!

As a toast to the last Michaels Makers post of the season, we created gifts, baked treats and threw parties for each of the six holidays this summer. My challenge was “how to decorate for a graduation party.” I think graduations are so awesome because a person is moving on to a new important part of their life and what better way support them with a graduation party!

The good news about today’s post is that you can use the decor I created for a small child, high schooler or someone graduating from college!  What I love about the products is you can mix and match with ton’s of different colors and create different looks to fit a person’s personality. OH –by the way, happy EARTH DAY! Let’s get started!

Celebrations Creative 2 For today’s post I wanted to use colors that are happy and bright. Turquoise and Yellow can be used for any gender or age and I think it will make everyone smile. Everything I used today was from the Celebrate It line at Michaels.

If you are not familiar with this line it is AWESOME!  They have so many different generic items in every color you could imagine -making it easy to mix and match everything. Are you stoked yet!?

DIY GRADUATION DECOR

These little chalkboard easels were from the $1 bins right by the registers. I saw them and thought they were perfect to put all over with sweet notes on them.

You can write inspirational notes on them or you can put them by all of the food with food names on them. If you are having a sit down party you can put them at each table with your guests’ name!

DIY CHALKBOARD SIGN I put yummy mints in these bags for the guests. You can dress them up with miniature clothespins and a tag saying congrats!  EASY DIY PARTY DECORATIONS I also found these darling black and white striped lanterns in the $1 bins also. I think black and white can be added to ANYTHING and they go great with my color theme. You can hang these from the ceiling or place them on your table settings like I did. The possibilities are endless! GRAD PARTY DECOR For my graduate banner I used turquoise doilies from the Celebrate It section and placed adhesive glittered letters in the center of them.

Use a hole puncher to add a hole at the top of doily. This will make is easy to add string to them.
GRADUATION DECORATIONS I think every party needs a book for your guests to sign. I picked up this book in the Celebrate It section and added this cute 3-Dimensional sticker to the top of it. This sticker was also in the Celebrate It section. I am so in love with this book!
GRADUATION PARTY I love that Michaels offers twine in so many different colors, this yellow really makes my banner POP! GRADUATION PARTY For drinks I picked up these cute vintage looking milk glasses and added a strip of adhesive glitter tape around the center. You could take this a step further and add letters with a name on them. I wanted them to be really simple and elegant. When done add a paper straw to them and VOILA, instant cuteness!

Wanna make your guests really happy, let them take a glass home with them as a party favor along with their bag of mints! HOW TO DECORATE A GRAD PARTY I love favors and when I saw these cute boxes I had to have them. They were too plain so I added adhesive spray to one side then sprinkled with turquoise glitter. You can also add a small piece of twine to tie everything together.

HOW TO MAKE PARTY BOXES We all know my love for tissue paper pom poms. I bought a few colors but I stuck to my teal and light green for this party decor.  HOW TO MAKE TISSUE FLOWERS HOW TO MAKE TISSUE POM POMS PARTY DECORATIONS DIY PARTY FAVOR BAGS I hope you enjoyed this post! I had a blast creating this party decor for you! Love you all and see you in the next post…

Happy Painted Neon Socks Day! It’s been a hot minute since I made an appearance on the blog and I promise that was temporary! I have been so crazy busy lately and I am now back in the groove of things! It’s kinda funny how life can get so overwhelming, but in a good way! Check out this NEON DUCK TAPE bag I made it would go perfect with these socks!

I have this “SLIGHT” obsession with socks. Anytime I go into a store and I run across socks with prints I go nuts. I am not sure why because you will rarely find me wearing tennis shoes. I am a Birkenstock kinda gal so the sock things is kinda odd. Yes, I have a drawer full of neon, colorful, printed, patterned and anything else you can think of socks.  Which brings me to THIS post. I found this pack of socks at……Michaels! Yes, Michaels. I was kinda shocked at first but I can’t lie my insides kinda had a party inside when I saw them. I immediately grabbed one of each color as fast as I could. I am really proud of myself that I didn’t grab 3 of each color, seriously! I knew I wanted to jazz them up but I wasn’t sure how.

These pretty babies stayed in my studio for a hot minute… ok they got lost in my studio but when I finally ran across them my insides had a party all over again. That day I was into my Tulip Dimensional paint so the Universe answered my design question for me. I realized this was something anyone can do, especially kids. Let’s face it – kids love to create! Adults do too! Let’s get started so I can show you how to enhance your socks in 10 minutes!

neon socks

I could tell you this project is super hard but I would be lying. It’s actually super easy! I wanted to create very subtle geometric designs on my socks so I only did the top part of them…. They turned out fabulous and unique. Every time I wear them I get stopped…well not really BUT I have had a few people ask me where I got them. Remember, I am a Birkenstock chica so you won’t really find me wearing socks!

On a whole other note my better half signed me up for a tennis league. Yes. A tennis league. I am not sure why I am telling you this but I guess this will be the perfect opportunity to show off all of my snazzy socks. I am so glad she has more faith in me than my socks do, haha! I am however super stoked about all the tennis clothes I will be wearing. I guess if I don’t play that good the least I could do is look cute on the court right… Stay tuned I will keep you updated, or I will NEVER mention this again. #fml

NEON GREEN SOCKS I kinda fell in love with each pair but I absolutely love the pink with black and white stripes. Leave a comment in the comment section telling me which pair is YOUR favorite.  DIY SOCKS

Since I love NEON so much I thought I would share with you this neon fashion roundup I did a while back. Yes I still love every single thing in the picture below even though this post was done a few years ago.  Neon Statement

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
