Bottle Beauty

GOOD MORNING JADERBUGS!!!

I hope you love this craft because I am ADDICTED to it. I want to “paint” everything clear that I see.  Transform everyday vessels into elegant vases by coating their interiors with glass enamel. Any container will do — buy up old bottles at a flea market or try kitchen cast-offs, such as jam jars. We used white enamel, which yielded different shades of green depending on the tint of the glass.

I got all of my products at Michaels arts and crafts store. If you don’t have one locally you can go to Delta Creative and order some! 

Wash the bottle inside and out with soapy water; let dry. Pour in a small amount of the paint’s surface conditioner, which primes the glass for the enamel. Swirl to coat fully, then pour out excess.

Stand bottle upright, and dry for an hour. Pour in enough enamel to easily coat the inside. Swirl, and return excess to container for reuse.

This is so pretty! Make sure you coat it good so you don’t have streaks.

I mixed a little white and blue to get this effect! So pretty!!

All I did was pout the 2 colors in the container and started painting the inside.

I dressed them up with my homemade pom poms! Did you see my post on how to make them? Check it out HERE!

See how fun these suckers look! I hope you have fun making some! OH! Check out my video I made on “How to Paint on Glass”… I did this a while ago so forgive if it’s cheezy. haha

OVERWHELMED with everything I have to do but I will feel better when it’s bedtime,

Glitter Bird Centerpiece

Jaderbugs! I am serious when I tell you this is a craft you can display all year long. The only thing you would have to do is change the colors of glitter for each occasion! This craft was so relaxing and I could totally do this ALL day! Let’s go! Just think you could do purple/gold for LSU, red/white for UL, purple/gold/green for Mardi Gras…or whatever holiday’s you might celebrate.

Tools and Materials
Small craft brush
Feathered birds
White glue
Glitter in various textures and hues
Thin lametta tinsel
Branch

These are some of the materials I used.  The only think I did not put in this picture is a brush. OH and my birdies. I used the iridescent glitter from martha stewart, mod podge and branches from my yard.

When I saw this branch I just had to get it. It look’s like a big claw hand. Right!

Seriously. How pretty is this picture. It looks like pink gems and a magical wand. I might put that on my list to Santa. {{along with my Hello Kitty bag:)

Make sure you collect all of your glitter so you don’t loose these precious jewels.

Sea of green…

How Pretty is this sucker! I love the way they turned out. If you notice I didn’t glitter the entire branch. I like little nuggets showing up in different spots. HAHA

Like this little birdie who looked sad and lonely and wanted some sparkles on her.

Whatduhya know. Look what I found. LIttle glitter babies full of glitter. I may have just saved these birdies lives!!!

Yep. They look so much happier.

I love glitter. Why does it make me feel good in 3 seconds.

Weeeeeeeeee…I hope you had a great day jaderbugs and I hope you enjoyed this craft!!!

Falling asleep faster than I expected tonight,

Snowball Wreath

A wreath of puffy white pom-poms, reminiscent of snowballs, will last the entire winter season. Because it is made from just a few materials and has a simple color scheme, any child age 6 or older can make one with great success, or even a dozen to give as holiday gifts.

These are the things you will need for the project.

Look how pretty this metallic paint is! You can purchase them wherever Martha Stewart crafts are sold.

With a low-temperature hot-glue gun (or white glue, which takes longer to dry), attach about twenty-four 2-inch and fifteen 1-inch pompoms to the ring, alternating sizes as you go. Fill in the spaces with ten or so 1/2-inch pom-poms.

Isn’t it so pretty! I only used one size for my pom poms.

Grab some leaves in your yard and paint them with the Martha Stewart metallic paint. After I painted them I cut them ends to look pointed.

This reminds me of a big ole cloud. One in which I would LOVE to be laying on right about NOW! I can’t wait to see pictures of your wreath!

Dreaming of a fluffy pillow and a new gold Michael Kors watch,

If you want to decorate your dog’s bowl in a very unique way then this is what you need! I have to tell ya, I did this baby twice. First time I did it just like Martha. I put it down to take a picture and Co ran up to it thinking I was putting “food” down. Yep it smeared all over her and ALL over the bowl. I tried to wipe it all off before it dried and I was not successful.  I had to change the look of the name. It’s a little more “bubbly” than I wanted but I had so much fun making it! 4 days left Jaderbugs till the 100 day’s of Martha is OVER! Can you believe I have been doing ONLY MARTHA STEWART crafts for 100 day’s! It feels crazy that I have not done Jaderbomb crafts in that time period. I guess I didn’t realize how much Martha would be involved in my life! I mean, if you thought I loved her then…Just think how much I love her now. I practically eat, drink and sleep Martha Stewart. You know what I am doing after the 10th? Sleeping. I might not step ONE foot into my studio for a couple of days jaderbugs. Momma’s tired!

Ingredients: Ceramic bowl, Ceramic Paint.

I got my bowl at Pet Smart and it was only 4 bucks! My vitrea paint was purchased at Michaels! Links below…

Dog bowl. Vitrea paint. Remember, you can use ANY bowl that you have. It doesn’t have to be this one. I just liked this baby because it was plain.

Sorry Jaderbugs that I only have 2 pics and not “in the process” pictures. Remember Co messed up my first one so I didn’t want to post pics of two different bowls. You can totally see how easy it is to do. When I first did it I used some carbon paper and applied her name onto the bowl using that. It just helps your image to go on strait. After Co messed it up I just painted big letters over it!

I also put TONS of polka dots because there were little black marks all over it. Can you imagine what Co looked like! Let’s just say she took a bath right after! I hope you have fun with this craft. Remember, if you want to make memories put the bowl down by your pet. HAHA~

Still loving on my ceramic paint eating dog,

Homemade Pom-Poms

The other day I was totally in the mood to make a video! Since my old you tube channel got deleted (thanks nessie) I had to start ALLLL over. I can’t believe I lost all of my old tutorial videos. I haven’t really had time to do videos since I have been blogging {{alot}} lately. This video I made is so funny! I made it in the middle of the night and it’s just my hands doing the work!

Don’t forget to listen for the sleep deprived, crazy singing, a.d.d voice in the background! ( I have a feeling you won’t miss it).

It is just so much fun to make pom pom’s and I always make them! Martha uses a tool in her tutorial but I am using my lil ole hands. HOWEVER, I will be posting the video today and will link it up in here for the tutorial using the tool she is using!

Enjoy JADERBUGS!

DIY- Pet-Silhouette Tote Bag

Keep your pet — or at least his image — at hand all the time, and show everyone just how cute he is. Adorn a bag with a silhouette of his profile. Ultra suede fabric doesn’t fray, so it’s simple to work with, and twill tape, used for the collar and leash, is easy to shape. If you want to use different fabric you absolutely can!

I love my baby girl Ceaux Ceaux! You know she has a blog! You should check it out. She does LOT’S of fun things!!

Grab a bag you want to use

I love Martha Stewart’s all purpose scissors! They cut flawlessly!

Photocopy picture, enlarging so that dog is about two-thirds the height of the bag; cut out along dog’s outline. I drew my baby girl instead of printing a picture! But it works the same way!

This is what your image should look like when you are done cutting it out. My baby girl’s nub is so cute!

Lay photo cutout, face up, on front of fabric, and trace with fabric pen.

Ceaux Ceaux is all cut out!!!

I used this stencil adhesive for the dog. I coated the back side with this spray and then stuck it where I wanted it on the bag. This stuff is magic!

This is where I stuck her!

Does it look like her? HAHA! She wasn’t too happy about me stepping on “HER” outdoor rug. She kinda looked at me like “guh get of my rug with that ugly bag”…But Martha loved it so whatever CO!

How to Make Sequin-Wrapped Beads and Foam Balls

This craft is really easy and really fun. You can give these as gifts or you can make them for yourself (not at all saying that would make you selfish, to keep them ALL to yourself because they are that cute). You could give them to others for Christmas each year and start a nice little tradition ( or you can keep them ALL to yourself :) HAHA

INGREDIENTS:

~ Styrofoam Balls

~ Sequins

~Hooks (to hang them with)

~Strait Pins

~thanks P for being my hand model

 

First thing you will do is arrange your sequins on the strait pin according to your taste. I decided to use red, green and gold!

I figured I would do the original Christmas colors, or at-least what makes me feel all warm and cozy inside~

  

After you attach your sequins, you will gently stick it into the styrofoam ball.

 Remember, you do NOT have to stick them into the ball in a certain order, unless you want to.

When the ball is finished you will get out your hooks and stick it where you want. You might have to remove ONE sequined pin to give the hook it’s own special home!

 See BELOW…You can either screw it in or just push it in, either way works. You just want to remember to be gentle because if you put it in the ball and you take it out to redo it, it will not stay. So I guess what I am saying is you have ONE and only ONE try with this.. or your gonna melt when you go into the sun….:)

 See just how beautiful these little balls of fire are!!! I personally would LOVE to get some like this for Christmas! Wouldn’t you?!?!?!?!

(Maybe I will keep just this one)

 

 You can also add other things that interest you. I LOVE gold!!

As you can see below, I used some gold tacks to put the letter “j” in my ball.

 

 

I wanted to add this one in here to show you that you can JUST use glitter if you want to.

First thing you will do is spray the entire ball with spray adhesive. Then just sprinkle whatever color glitter you like. I used baby blue and brown. When I was done I added a little splash by sticking pins with a yellow tip in it.

 So are you already in your car going get your ingredients!!! I can’t wait to see what you create:)

Seriously cleaning my studio all over again (haha), jaderbomb

Tinsel Light Garland

 I have ALWAYS loved tinsel. It makes me smile and it makes me smile…

Create a simple garland for the holiday season with this Good Thing from Hannah Milman, executive editorial director of crafts at Martha Stewart Living.

Tools and Materials: Christmas lights and Garland

I grabbed some silver tinsel and wrapped bright colored pieces of tinsel around it…

After I added my colorful details I wrapped it securely around a string of Christmas lights.

Ribbon Star Ornaments

Up the elegance of this year’s Christmas tree with beautiful celestial ornaments like these hand-tied ribbon stars. If you wanna spice up your tree or your gift bags then you have to do this craft! When I tell you this sucker is so easy your kids could do it and make a ba-jillion of them! 

The secret to making these simple stars: Tie all the knots in the same direction.

Grab some ribbon…

Do the same movements you would do if you were making a knot…

See this is how it will look…

Repeat 5 times, adjusting each new knot so its bottom left touches the bottom right of the previous. Trim ribbon ends…

This is the one I made with bright yellow ribbon. I hope you enjoyed this crafteroo!!!

Shimmering Stacked Trees

 Happy (whatever day it is) Jaderbugs! I am in love with using paper this holiday season. I hope you love this craft as much as I do! This shimmering stacked tree will add a festive — and eco-friendly — touch to your home this holiday season. These magnificent trees can also be stacked using any leftover aluminum foil, felt, or crepe paper. {I used an old magazine)

I used a piece of wood, skewer, scissors, spray adhesive and glitter. Yep, that’s it!

Grab some magazines and cut out:

 -6 by 6 inches
-5 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches
-5 by 5 inches
-4 1/2 by 4 1/2 inches
-4 by 4 inches
-3 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches
-3 by 3 inches
-2 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches
-2 by 2 inches
-1 1/2 by 1/2 inch

Get a skewer or whatever you want to stick the paper on.

I drilled a hold into my wood so it woud be sturdy.

After I cut all of my pieces out I folded them into fours so I can see where my center is.

Then start sliding them onto the wood!

When you are done it should start to look like this!

I used adhesive spray, and glitter.

After you finish stacking spray a good amount of adhesive spray onto the tree.

I really just had fun with this sucker! I wanted it to look like a cotton candy Christmas tree…

And it does!!! It looks prettier in person I tell ya! Remember the magazine tree I did here? I hope you have fun doing this!

Going pick up glitter in my studio, jaderbomb
