One of my favorite things to do on weeks is explore our beaches and hunt for treasures with my daughter. Sometimes it’s for beautiful gifts from the sea, and sometimes we have a craft in mind. This time we were on a mission to collect white coral and rocks so we could put some old nail polish to good use!
We piled all our brightly patterned creations into a milk glass bowl, and it makes the perfect centerpiece!
We had so much fun painting away, it was just what the doctor ordered on a gloomy day!
Over the next week or so Sydney and I will be crafty like crazy, creating our spooky Halloween decor. And I’ll be sure to share each and every project with you! Today’s craft is fun for the kids to admire, but not safe for them to make. You’ll need led candles in various sizes, parchment or wax paper, hot glue gun, black spray paint, and black glitter.
Start out by coating your candles in hot glue. Let the glue drip down the sides of the candles, pooling on the wax paper. Its best to keep turning the candle to let some of the glue drips cool before putting on the next layer. This creates more dimension.
Several glue sticks later, once you have the desired drippy look, carefully peel your candle off the parchment or wax paper.
Now tape or cover the flame portion of the candle, and spray your candle black. Immediately sprinkle your candle with glitter, so that it will stick to the wet paint. Be sure this step is done in a well ventilated area.
This week I am heading to Ohio to do a room makeover. So, over the next few days I will post pics of the room progress, diy projects, and of course before and after photos. I can’t wait to get started!
