CrAFt-a-PoLooZA.....More Glitter.....YAY!

More glitter.....more glitter.....

Hello, Glitterinas!

Guess what craft supply I'm using today?!

Glitter!



Come on into my craft room.....and let's get craftin'.....

We're starting off with some
old silver ware my Father In Law
gave me.

In previous posts, I've shared some interesting 
things that came from Papaw's barn....well, he has 
interesting things to share from his house, too!


I was reading a blog one day that showed
 a hutch containing lovely dishes.

That hutch also had some pegs displaying spoons that had
been decorated with small clip art.

I was intrigued with those spoons!

I wanted to try and make some......and guess what?!

I had some spoons from Papaw that were perfect
for this project.

Don't you love it when things happen like that??

Since Halloween is the next holiday, I decided to 
decorate my spoons with pumpkins, 
cats, and maybe a witchy poo or two.

Free clip art is available online....so if this is something
you want to try, it's easy to start!


I chose two spoons to cover with 
orange and black glitter.

I used white school glue....


As I was glittering, I decided not to make all the
spoons for Halloween.

I decided I wanted two Halloween spoons,
two Christmas spoons,
and two Springtime spoons.....

Yep, I liked that little brain blip!

Let's continue.....


Once the spoons were glittered, I cut out the clip art
pictures and began to play with the arrangement....

I knew I wanted clip art and ribbon.....
maybe a button....maybe other "littles".....

This is what I ended up hot gluing on the
orange glitter spoon.




I like the way this one turned out.

I bet you have some silver ware that
would make cute decorations to
hang up and bring a touch of Halloween 
to your house!

Wanna see the other Halloween spoon?

It's sparkly and spooky with black glitter....



Isn't that little cat adorable?!


So, there you have the two Halloween spoons.....


.....and here they are hanging in the dining room.


I think I'll enjoy the Christmas spoons, too.

Same process.....glitter the spoon, 
trim the clip art.
pick out other embellishments,
play with the arrangement,
glue.




Here's a look at the completed spoons....



That plaid button is perfect....


These little cuties might be fun to tie on 
a special Christmas gift....

What do you think about that, Glitterinas?



Sweet Baby Jesus


Here are the two Christmas spoons....


Last but certainly not least....

I made two Springtime spoons.



The darker the glitter color, the better the coverage.


I like the royal blue and the purple.



The blue spoon has a crepe paper ruffle behind the bowl.


Are you all glittered out?

Here's a quick project that might be my favorite.....

A Hocus Pocus banner.


I started with the freebie that
Giggles and Grace offered.....


How sweet is that?

Their banner read
"Trick or Treat"
and
I wanted mine to say
"Hocus Pocus"

so......

I punched out circles
that matched the size of the
circles on the banner pieces....



....added stick on letters....
and made a spider web circle
to cover the "or" banner piece.

Using a tape runner, I taped the circles 
onto the banner pieces.


When all the pieces were ready, I used tiny clothes pins to
hang the banner on the
fireplace.





Two fun projects....I hope you'll
give them a try!

Let me know how things turn out....
share pictures!

Glitterinas, I am so glad you stopped by
Pink Glitter today. Thank you!

Until next time,
Tammy

HoCus POcUs.....It's a CraFT-a-PoLooZA!

Welcome, welcome Glitterinas!

Plug in those glue guns, 
sharpen up those scissors
and let's get that glitter flowing.....

We're crafting today here at Pink Glitter!

The first project that we're gonna crank out is
a knock-off of a seasonal
door hanger for sale in this catalogue.....


I love this company's products.  They are
new, different, and creative......they are also
usually rather expensive!

This door hanger caught my eye....


A big candy corn with a seasonal
arrangement in it....how cute!

I loved it!

I did not like the almost 
$300 dollar price tag!

Wow!

Let's see what we can whip up
with some craft supplies and a little 
imagination, Glitterinas....

HoCus POcUs.....

Ah ha....pretties to go in a cute candy corn holder....


My magic did not produce a 
giant candy corn to put an
autumn arrangement in.....poop!

But, I do have a brown fabric bag that 
I think I can work some magic on....


if it was folded.....


and if it was painted.....so, I sketched the 
scalloped edges....


....chose my candy corn colors....
white, gold, and yellow.

I love Martha Stewart's metallic paint!


OK, little bag....get ready to be 
transformed into a candy corn!


While you are reading this, I hope you are thinking about
something in your stash that would make a perfect
candy corn!  

Or just maybe, you have a big ol'
candy corn in your bag of tricks that
is just waiting to be made into an
autumn chic door decoration!


It seems my candy corn needs two coats of paint.....


Ah, much better.....

Using school glue, I glittered the
scalloped edge of each color....I used a copper color glitter.
Oooops, no picture....sorry.

OK, Glitterinas, now let's see what 
we can do about filling this candy corn bag.

I started with some "poofs" of
brown, sparkly tulle.


Several poofs later......not really sure I like it.....


It's not generally in my nature to take
sparkly away....usually I'm a member of the
"add more sparkle" school.

Oh well, there's a first time for everything, I guess.....

OUT with several of the poofs, 
and IN with 
some leaves,
some berries, 
and pretty ribbon loops....




There you go!

An autumn chic decoration!

What do you think??



Can we make one more quick project??

Pretty please.....

A banner that reads "WICKED".

Pick a font you like.....I liked this one, it's
Academy Engraved at 400 points.

Print the letters out on colored paper and trim.


Tack each letter on some type of hanging string.  
I used thin orange cord and hot glue.

Tie some bows with ribbon you think
will look good on your banner....




Attach the bows to your banner.....

HoCus POcUs.....


The hardest part of this project is deciding where
it will be displayed during the
Halloween season!

Thanks for joining me for this
CraFT-a-PoLooZA!

Next time, we'll be making some more
glittery, seasonal things to
help get your house ready for
Fall and Halloween!

You are the best, Glitterinas!



Until next time,
Tammy
