DIY Gold Bracelet Holder
My “Space Just for Me”
Do you love it? I do!!! I created a jewelry vanity that I will also use as a desk. I hid my plans from Tony so he was surprised when he came home and saw what I created. Thank God he loved it.

I hope you are enjoying craft week as much as I am. If you have been following my blog for a while you know the crayon wax technique. It’s relatively easy to create while looking and feeling like something you would splurge on in the store.
I have mason jars hanging around the house and thought I would melt some black crayons on the outside of the jar to create a spooky candle holder or flower vase. Adding the twine and making a noose like handle keeps the spooky Halloween theme alive.
The crafts will be getting more advanced as the week continues, this one is simple, the kids or husband can join in on the fun.
Time: 20-30 minutes
Skill lever: Beginner
What you need:
Black, Purple, Sliver crayons – $3.99
2 Small Mouth Mason Jars – $1.50 each
Blow drier or embossing tool – FREE
Twine – $2.99
Start by lining your work surface with a large garbage bag
That’s all today folk’s
Happy Thursday Friends!
One more day and it’s Friday baby! I can’t believe the 4th of July is tomorrow. Do you have any fun things planned? I have a gut feeling that this year will be an 4th of July weekend since a lot of people work on Fridays.
My bestie took the day off just for me. 🙂 We are going to meet up early Friday morning for brunch, go on a quick hike to catch up and get in touch with Mother Nature, then we’re getting Thai Massages. After all that, we plan on bar and restaurant hopping until it’s firework time. Sausalito is centrally located so we can watch 2 sets of fireworks, fireworks in San Francisco and San Rafael.
I want to decorate the house with 4th of July themed DIY crafts, and I’m letting all of you in on my fun.
All crafts are quick, easy, cheap, and kid/boyfriend friendly
What you need:
Hot glue gun
Blow dryer or Embossing Heat gun
4 Mason Jars or water bottle
10-20 red whit and blue, glow sticks depending on how many lights you want to create
I found glow sticks at 99 cent store
What you need:
Red, White, Blue, construction paper
You do not have to be perfect with the glue gun
All of your mistakes will be conveniently covered
That’s all today folks
It’s Friday, we doing crafts with crayons. This project is great for kids, teenagers, and adults. So what is it already????
Ribbon to wrap around foam
Hot glue and glue gun
6-8 packs red hot candy depending on the size of you wreath
Dimensional magic spray polyurethane or resin to seal candy
I had a dream about this project. I wanted a fun door hanger that screamed HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!!! I wanted it to have texture and a few surprise elements. Tadaaa! I loved putting this project together. It took about an hour, which was a little longer then I thought it would take, to glue on the red hots. Even though I don’t have any kids, I think this project is great to do with kids. They can snack on the red hots and help with sticking them to the wreath. Try this craft, it’s fun, and impressive.
Red – White – Blue card stock
Medium to large star cutter optional
This was EASY, lots of fun, and kid friendly. The stars are simple to make once you get the hang of it, and the banner looks pretty sick when your done.
Enjoy the crafts friends!!!
Today we are tackling Bottle Cap Picture Magnets.
I originally set out to create plastic pendents with personalized pictures, but I couldn’t find any round plastic pendents. I was frustrated and ready to give up and move on to the next project when I saw bottle caps. If I was in a cartoon a light bulb would have appeared above my head as soon as I saw them.
Why not create bottle cap picture magnets instead. The bottle caps were only $3.99, I picked out some serious jewelry glue to make sure the pictures would stick and the glue would dry clear.
Then I ran down an employee to help me find a circular cutter. I knew this was the only missing piece to really knocking this DIY craft out of the park. I was not willing nor did I think I would succeed in cutting perfect circles. After about 5 minutes we decided on a 1 inch-2.54cm circular hole punch made by Recollections.
My next stop was Kinko’s. I needed to print out some pictures that would fit in my bottle cap frames. I found that wallet sized pictures worked perfectly.
The project came out divine. I gave a few of these magnets to my boyfriends Mother, with pictures of her new Grandson in it and she loved it. I think this present will make any ones heart melt.
Enjoy this quick, easy, and cheap project
Bottle Caps – $3.99 Michael’s
Wallet Size photos – $10.00 Kinko’s
E600 Jewelry and Bead glue – $4.99 Michael’s
Magnet strip, with adhesive on one side – $6.99 local hardware store
1in-2.54cm hole punch *mine was made by Recollections – $10.99 Michael’s
This project took me about 30 minutes in total. The hardest part was cutting the magnet strip, and it wasn’t hard at all. The fun part is cutting out the pictures with your over-sized hole punch.
I love crafting and I hope that some of my recent projects have inspired you to Do It Yourself
