Everyone is putting up their trees and even if you already purchased all of your tree decor this is still something you can add to it! What if you make a dozen DIY ornaments and give them to someone as a gift!

I promise you every year when they open that box they will always think of you, I think that is so special and sweet!

Howdy Hoo Jaderbugs, today I will be showing you how to make your very own Ice Cream Cone Christmas Ornaments. I don’t know if you remember last year when I made my CupCake Ornaments but let me tell you they were such a hit! I wanted to do something different this year. I have so much fun making festive ornaments for my tree and I love that they are so easy anyone can do them. Sometimes I make things that I want to eat, literally! You know those things you create and you walk by them and always stop to admire them. Yeah, that is how I feel about these suckers. I won’t lie to you the products I used in this project were key. So don’t make them without the awesome glitter dimensional paint.

Worried Santa will fill your stocking with your brother’s stuff because you left your stockings nameless this year? Scared to walk into an ugly Christmas sweater party and see someone else wearing the same thrift store sweater? From personalized Christmas decor to sparkly ornaments and   ugly sweaters, avoid disaster and make this holiday season uniquely yours with Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint.

Make sure to check out all my projects I have made for I Love to Create HERE.Ice Cream Cone Christmas Ornaments - DIYAre you drooling yet? I have this old aluminum tree and I am thinking about making more and filling the tree with them. Wanna come to my house and help me make them??? Come on, it will be fun. We can sit at my table, drink coffee and make non edible ice cream cones. holiday diy ornamentsyou will need

*Tulip Dimensional Paint
*Glue Gun
*Scrapbook Paper
*Christmas Ornaments
*Lotsa Love ice cream cone ornament supplies

You can purchase all of the dimensional products I used in today’s post HERE.

Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint is available at Walmart, Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Stores, Hobby Lobby, Michaels, AC Moore, Amazon and most other major craft supply stores.

I literally keep this stuff stocked in my studio. You will be so surprised how much this stuff comes in handy for the most random projects. They have this new Confetti Glitter that is so beautiful. It looks matte when you first squeeze it out but when it dries it’s like a glittery heaven. GLITTER PAINT

Check out these amazing Christmas colors. Tulip has a great Christmas pack that is totally necessary in your life. glitter puff paintSTEP ONE – Get a sheet of scrapbook paper and lay it on a flat surface then fold it in half.

I wanted to do all black and white designs for my cones so my color would POP!
black and white patterns

This is what it should look like once you fold it in half. Easy right!
cutting paper

STEP TWO – Fold that half in another half. It will look like the size of a greeting card at this point. diy christmas ornamentsSTEP THREE – unfold your sheet and it will look like it has four squares. Now you can grab those handy dandy scissors and cut along all the lines.
striped scrapbooking paper

You will have four squares ready to get folded into baby cones. christmas ornament tutorial

STEP FOUR – Cut out a circle in each small square. I free handed my circle because honestly in the end it will not matter if it’s perfect. However if you are a perfectionist you are more than welcome to place something down and trace a circle. The bigger the circle the bigger the cone.

These four small squares will give you smaller cones. If you want to do a bigger cone you can use one whole sheet of paper for one large cone.

Once you start making your circles you will get a feel for what size you prefer. I like to have a variety of small and large cones.
how to cut a circle

STEP FIVE – cut out a piece of pie from that circle. Again, it does not matter if it’s exactly perfect. how to make a cone

STEP SIX – Take one end of the pie and fold it over continuously folding into the cone shape. It’s almost like twisting the paper and after a few times you will understand what I mean. I will be honest and tell you it’s SUPER EASY, can we hug now? paper cones

Tadahhhhhh! We now have our very own paper cone. I seriously love this pattern!  Once you are done rolling the cone you can add a drop of hot glue to the end to secure the paper in place. diy paper cones

STEP SEVEN – Once your cone is all rolled up you will line the inside of the cone with hot glue. I will warn you to work a little fast at this point because you don’t want the glue to dry before you put the ornament inside. martha stewart hot glue gun

STEP EIGHT – Quickly place your ornament inside of the cone. Make sure to leave the part that you put the hanger in at the top. This is also where we will be putting out cherry! Wait, do ice cream cones have cherries on top? If not then mine do, hehe!cupcake ornaments

Once you are done making all of your ice cream cones we will add the dimensional paint to look like they are dripping off the ornament. Now I know most ice cream cones are not colorful but mine are and I like it that way. Just a tip, if you want you can use ornaments that reflect real flavors of ice cream.

How long does it take to dry? 
Depending on application thickness, Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint has a dry time from 2-8 hours. I recommend letting your project dry overnight; it is washable after the paint has fully dried. ice cream cone diy

Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint is nontoxic. However, we discourage the use of the product around the rim of any dinnerware or stemware. Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint is for fun with friends, not food.

You can add one solid color  then come back on top with the dimensional glitter paint. Remember, this stuff dries clear so it will look completely different once they are dry.

green puff paint

I added some glittery red paint to the top to mimic a cherry however you can also glue red pom poms on top.  candy christmas

How stinking CUTE! I love that these are so precious you can literally keep them up all year long. Yes. I am that person that has a hard time putting things away that look like this. You could also add them to packages to add some spice. icecream cone diy ornaments

Today we will close our eyes and make Rainbow Glass Jars, you know the ones that are made for fairies… What! You are not one? Good news for ya, the yumminess in these jars will turn you into one as soon as you sprinkle it on you.

Ok fine all that will happen if you dump this load of glitter on you is a hot dam mess on the floor. Let’s not forget your precious hair, yes it will be full of glitter. I used tinsel glitter for this lil project so you really are doomed. Unless you are like me and you wouldn’t mine glistening in the sun like Edward Cullen did daily. If you like all that glitters, then check out all of my rainbow crafts.

…now let’s get to the nitty gritty

Rainbow Glass Jars

I bought a little bag of sliced birch wood at Michaels. They are so dang precious I didn’t even want to use them for this post! FYI: they were only 2 bucks a bag. Now say that 6 times really fast!birch wood

These are all of the colors I used for this post, well minus black. martha stewart rainbow glitter

Step One: Fill your glass jars with glitter. It’s your choice to fill them all the way or half way. I like leaving room for them to float around a little.

Step Two: With the bottle up right put a little hot glue around the rim and then carefully place your piece of wood right on top. Hold it in place for a few seconds until the glue is dry. VOILA!

Step Three: on the opposite side of the wood put a dot of glue then place your ribbon “good side down” right on top. birch wood craftsStep Four: Tie the ends of your ribbon together. You just created a hanger on your fun glitter jar. diy christmas ornaments

Christmas Ornaments

Today I am sharing something that will make you go ga-ga! Not Lady GaGa just candy cane Ga-Ga.

I made these cupcake ornaments a few weeks ago and they were a hit so I figured I would make another version of them.

I am using white puff paint so it looks like real icing! Have fun, use any color that makes you smile from ear to ear. how to put icing on an ornament

I like to set them down in the container they came in after I apply the puff paint. Once in the container, sprinkle with glitter. decorate cupcake ornaments

When they are dry, add a little hot glue to the bottom of ornament and stick on a cupcake liner.


I cut a few pieces of black and white bakers twine to hang them with. I think they are just precious!how to make candy cane ornaments

A few day’s ago I created some fabulous cupcake ornaments for the I Love to Create Blog. I knew they were cute as a button but I didn’t realize they would be such a big hit! I never make a ton of ornaments, I usually make enough for a photo. I knew these ornaments would make me smile during the holiday’s so I made lot’s of them! At least enough to fill up my cute gold tree.

If you want to see the FULL tutorial on how to make them check it out HERE!

This weekend I hosted a Pinterest party at the Lafayette Michaels store and let me tell you it was so much fun. I had so many happy faces come out to see me. Here are a few pictures from the event, before it got crazy busy!

This was one of the happiest employee’s I have ever met! Good job Michaels for snagging her, she’s a keeper!


I had my handy dandy Tulip spray paint to protect me. Look, there are my cupcake ornaments. 1461872_682780021756163_1230335570_n

Someone was happy to have a Tulip glitter tattoo. I hope you enjoy making these ornaments. See you in the next post!

 I had to share my excitement with you all! I fully understand it’s almost the end of January BUT Wal-Mart still has Christmas things ___ON SALE___! I surely thought they would have sold these babies already but I guess it has to do with luck. I have been to quite a few stores looking for Christmas supplies that are on SALE {{that’s the only way I can afford them hehe}}, and I hit the jackpot.   My collection NOW is amazing! I mean, each year I get all of the pretty ornaments that were SOOOO expensive and pay SOOOO little. It’s actually smart! Why am I telling you this Jaderbugs! Because I want you to go to any store that might sell Christmas supplies and see if they have any left that are on sale! Trust me if there is ANY left they will be on sale, they absolutely want to get rid of them!

Keep your mind open though, if you see some that you like but you don’t like the color get them because I am sure they will be like… 3 cents for the box by now. You can always spray paint them!

This is my recent splurge. ALL OF THIS JADERBUGS! Guess how much I paid for everything?


Now don’t try to shop online at Wal-Mart because everything is the “normal” price. Can you believe I paid 6 bucks! That is a value meal at McDonalds! I will put Wal-Mart’s link HERE so you can find the one closest to you!

The big boxes have I think, 25 ornaments in each box and they typically would be around $9.98 a box! The colors are AMAZING! Looking forward to my bright and whimsical Christmas next year!

Excited about doing a lamp shade tutorial for you Jaderbugs today,

Martha Stewart Countdown #100 Lucky Plant Gift

WOW! I am sitting at my computer right now crying so much. I am not sad or upset. I am just overwhelmed with what I just accomplished. I never thought any of this would happen to me. WHY would it? Well because I believe in myself for one and the rest comes with faith. {{thanks UNIVERSE}}

If you know me then you know I believe in the Universe more than I believe in myself. This countdown took on a big role in my life. I literally felt like I woke up thinking about Martha Stewart and I went to bed thinking of Martha Stewart. If I wasn’t doing this countdown one might would think I was OBSESSED.. HAHA. OK. Maybe I am just a little. I remember when I was standing right next to her, before the camera’s started rolling. I looked at her and it took me a minute to realize what was happening. I kinda wanted to frantically hug her or maybe just touch her cheek. I wanted to see if it was real. But I touched her hand and she kinda hugged me on the show so that was REAL ENOUGH!!!

I know you might of thought I would go out with a BANG. What I mean is, everyone is asking me “What will your 100th craft be”…It’s actually very simple and delicate. I thought it was perfect because a “JADE” plant is considered a “lucky plant. Did you know that? I have them all over my house and I have one in particular that I bought at the beginning of the countdown. You can get them at walmart! I got it because, well I guess I thought I NEEDED luck to do what I just promised to do. I remember when I told Ashy what I was doing. She just looked at me and said, “WHAT”. Really she said, {{are you flipping nuts woman}}.. HAHA. She turned into my biggest supporter. THANK YOU AND I LOVE YOU FOR THAT! 

Remember my post that I did announcing to the world about the Martha countdown? Let me share a couple of things I wrote in it:

Sometimes I pretend I am her. Have you ever seen her hands? She is just magnificent I tell ya. She makes every craft seem like walking on water. She is the craft god. I just wanna feel like I have walked in Martha’s shoes for a period in time.

Can you believe all of my energy led me to this. I had NO idea when I wrote THIS  post that 3 weeks later I would be standing next to her. FA REALLLL!! Thank you UNIVERSE again.  I made so many friends when I went to New York and I am so glad they are in my life. I have learned how to “REALLY” network and be the consistent crafter that I am!  Well here it is people. My 100th craft.

Wish someone an auspicious new year with a jade plant, Crassula ovata. This easy-care succulent is said to bring prosperity. 

To wrap the pot, place it on a square sheet of decorative paper.

Bring up two opposite corners, and secure to the pot with double-sided tape. 

Fold the other two flaps as shown; tape. 

Tie gold cord around the pot, and add a tag with a message.Well Jaderbugs, it’s been amazing and wonderful. I couldn’t of done it without you and your excitement about each and every craft I do! I will forever remember this STRESSFUL wonderful experience. HaHa. Don’t worry! I am not going anywhere. I was a craft blogger long before this project and I will be one long after! GUESS WHAT? You will NOW start getting all of my ORIGINAL JADERBOMB CRAFTS BACK!!! I AM SO EXCITED…

Martha, if you are reading this…thank you for recognizing me as a true crafter. You changed my life before I went on the show and now I will forever carry this memory with me. I will NEVER forget what you said on the show:

“There’s dedication and then there’s DEDICATION.”  -Martha Stewart

Homeade Doorbells

Deck the doorknobs with jolly kid-made bells. It’s a great activity for days when it’s too wet or chilly to play outside and — between your craft bin and the refrigerator — you probably have all the supplies on hand: an egg carton, paint, glitter, glue, and yarn.

(and you jaderbugs know how much I love GLITTERRR (singing) again)

NINETYYYYYYYY 99999999999999999999999999… (SINGING LOUD in a MANLY voice)

Get your egg carton. Paper works best!

 Cut the cone-shape pieces that separate the eggs out of a cardboard carton (one egg carton will produce five bells).

I just used a roll of colorful yarn. Heart this!

Colors I used for my craft. You can get it HERE.

Colors I used for my craft. You can get it HERE.

Paint each divider, using acrylic or poster paint. Let dry; apply glue along the edge of the divider, all over the outside, or wherever you like, and sprinkle with glitter.

These are the glitter colors I used!! ORDER SOME HERE!! Don’t forget to use THESE!

Thread an embroidery needle with yarn. Poke a hole through a bell’s crown, and pull yarn through partway.

Slide a bell onto the yarn.

 Tie a knot above the jingle bell and one a little higher. Like this!

Tie several bells around a doorknob, staggering the lengths of the yarn.

OK. Fa real! I am in LOVE. I know I say that about every craft that has GLITTER on it!!! Can you believe this is 99!!!

I got 99 problems and a _____ ain’t one,

Candy Cane Reindeer

Turning a plain candy cane into a cute reindeer is a simple Good Thing to get you and your family in the holiday spirit.

Candy cane
Brown felt or Brown paper (which is what jaderbomb used)

Reindeer Facts

Reindeer have different functions in different cultures. The larger-than-life holiday identity of reindeer likely originated from their ability to pull a heavy sleigh around their arctic homes.  Today, reindeer are mainly used in the United States and around the world to demonstrate the link between humans and animals and the environment. Their antlers are made up of the fastest growing tissue in the animal kingdom, growing up to an inch a day. Made of bone, reindeer antlers can grow within only a few weeks of birth. WOW. Reindeer are the only species of deer where both sexes have antlers, although only male reindeer develop a brow shovel, which they use to clear snow and ice off of grass.

Check above for the template. I was already giddy and happy when I saw this template.

Place template on brown felt or brown paper and trace face and ears; cut them out.

Make eyes by punching two dots out of black felt using a hole punch. Glue black dots to face. Let dry for 15 minutes.

Apply face and ears to candy cane using nontoxic glue. Attach craft pom-pom for the nose using nontoxic glue. If making a Rudolph candy cane, use a red pom-pom; otherwise, use brown.

She’s coming togetherrrrrererererrer (i was singing that) haha

Look FOLKS it’s out HANDY DANDY TRUSTY RUSTY WIRE!!!  Twist rustic floral wire to make antlers. Attach antlers by twisting around top of candy cane. Twist one small piece onto each side of the main antlers to make branches.


LAWD! If you these these are not scrumptious looking then you CUH-RAZY! I can’t believe this is 98! It’s the year I GRADUATED {{teehehehe I shouldn’t of said that}} Check Martha out here!

Special thanks to Jim Knox of Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo for sharing these interesting reindeer facts. See more of Jim Knox on “Jim Knox’s Wild Zoofari,” a live-action wildlife series airing on PBS that teaches kids about wildlife conservation. The reindeer seen on today’s show are from Santa’s Workshop, a theme park in North Pole, New York.

Candy Cane Mice

It’s the kids who will be doing the nibbling when these sweet mice are around. A combination of two Christmas icons — mice and candy canes — these tiny fabric creatures with their red-and-white-striped tails make fitting favors at a holiday dinner or delightful gifts for children to give to friends and relatives.

RIGHT!! Just wait till you see the scrumptious little munchkins!!

Get the mice template HERE.

After you cut out the images from your template trace them onto felt.

Take your paper punch and punch out a couple of holes into black felt.

You will cut slices like this.

After you pass the ears through the slit put a dab of glue on top of each ear.

OMG. Are you “really” ready for these suckers. I don’t think you are.

I never thought I would say that I absolutely LOVE mice now. Well, just pink and yellow ones.

Up an at um early this morning and seeing crooked mice because I am SO tired,

How To Make Embossed Cards

Take your projects to a new level by learning a technique called embossing. Embossing is a technique used to create a raised, or 3-dimensional, image on a piece of paper. You can emboss store-bought stationery or cards, or you can make your own from card stock.

When my friend at Martha Stewart sent me this starter kit I was like.. I must be stupid because I’ve never seen this! It looked hard but it was SO easy. Lemme tell you how ELEGANT this looks.

Ok. I’ll tell you. ELEGANT.

Let’s get started!!! It’s 2:30 in the morning and I think I just felt drool on my lip.

This is what the box will look like in the store. You can order one HERE.

I absolutely LOVED the bird. Tweet Tweet. Speaking of TWEETS don’t forget to find me on TWITTER so we can twitterbomb.

I started with card stock and folded it in half. I love this MINT color. Ya know, Lady GaGa said mint will be in next season.

Be careful not to press TOO TOO hard. We don’t want to work this hard and then tear it.. That would be an EPIC FAIL.

I know. I have OLIVE paper here. I made, let’s just say ((a few)) haha for Christmas cards.

This is just some things I was playing around with. I am in love.

Check out my friend Alex and Martha. Alex if your reading this…. I miss you and I’m cooking Gumbo on SUNDAY!

Wishing Martha, Alex, Stacey, Noel, & Lenore could come over this weekend,
