Bobble Head Craft Kit

Hello, my bucket list friends ! Arts and crafts kit have become one of my favorite hobbies and I recently finished doing another one . I can’t wait to tell you all about it so here we go!

 

Bobble Head Craft Kit

I was looking through my arts and craft supplies to find a project to complete. I had forgotten¬† about this very cute dog and cat bobble head kit that I had gotten at a local party supply store. I was excited when I saw it and I knew that it was just the project I was looking for. The kit had two bobble heads and few items to decorate them with including a marker ,paint and bows! I started decorating the cat first I glued a cute pink pink bow on the cat’s head and then I painted dot’s on her body. For the dog I glued a rose on her head and I covered her with paint . I used the yellow and orange paint on both of the bobble heads.¬† I really liked they way both of them turned out! They are super cute ! I would love to do another kit like this sometime.

Painting a cupcake bank

Hello, my bucket list friends! For Christmas my wonderful friend got me a Melissa and Doug craft kit. This craft kit included a cupcake shaped bank and paint to paint it with. I had a lot of fun painting the cupcake and I can’t wait to tell you more so here we go !

 

Painting a cupcake bank

I was very excited when I opened this gift from my friend! Melissa and Doug craft kits are just the cutest ! This craft kit was pretty simple you got to paint a cupcake shaped bank in any way you wanted to! The kit came with a good variety of paint colors to choose from and a smaller size paint brush that was perfect for this project due to the sprinkles on the cupcake. I started by painting the base of the cupcake I ended up mixing the colors but it looked good to me. I then painted the sprinkles and the rest of the cupcake. I wasn’t perfect with my painting so the paint overlapped onto the sprinkles in some places. When I was done painting the cupcake I was happy with it’s overall colorful and messy look. I also had a good amount of paint left over to use for other projects. I had a fun time painting the cupcake and I would totally use another craft kit like this.

Squishes art kit !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I recently got this really fun art kit where you color three very cute squishes! It was a great kit and I can’t wait to tell you more about it so here we go !

Squishes art kit !

I got this kit at Target it comes with three squishes to color along with markers to color them with. The first one I colored was the cake slice. The markers we’re good quality and colored the squishes well. I found this project to be very relaxing. My favorite part when it came to coloring the cake slice was coloring the big sprinkles . The next squishy was a cat it was my favorite of the three . I had fun coloring the cat with bright colors. The cat was cute before I colored it but it was even cuter after. The last squishy was a cute little ice pop with a bite taken out of it . Of course I also had a lot of fun coloring this one just like I did the other two. I enjoyed putting dots on it. I would totally buy another art kit like this ! It was fun and relaxing all at once and now I have three very cute squishes.

My very own puzzle!

Hello, my bucket list friends ! At summer camp many years ago I remember doing a make your on puzzle activity and really enjoying it. A while ago I bought my own blank puzzle to decorate. Yesterday I decided to turn my blank puzzle into a work of art. I can’t wait to tell you about my own personalized puzzle so here we go !

 

My very own puzzle!

The blank puzzle had been sitting on my arts and crafts shelf for awhile and I decided that yesterday was the day to turn it from blank to colorful. I chose to use sharpie markers to decorate my puzzle. I wan’st sure what to draw at first . I was deciding between an under water seen and a classic sunny day seen. I decided on a sunny day picture it was a sunny day after all! I started by drawing a smiling sunshine in the corner. After that my creativity went wild as I drew flowers,balloons, butterflies, and more ! As I worked to fill up as much blank space as possible I began to love my puzzle more and more! It was a bit difficult to draw on the puzzle pieces where they connected but overall I really enjoyed making my own puzzle and I love the way it turned out. I would totally buy another blank puzzle. If you are looking for a fun and easy project to do I highly recommend this. I got mine at Michaels but they are available other places as well. Rock On – Christina Epperly

Arts and crafts fun Oct. 2019

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I recently got to do one of my favorite things arts and crafts kits ! I can’t wait to tell you what I created this time so here we go !

 

Arts and crafts fun Oct. 2019

Disney glitter globe kit – I’ve been eyeing this kit at for a while and I finally picked it up. They had a few princess to chose from. I chose Ariel .When it came time to put the globe together there was a lack of directions but I kind of figured it out. It was hard to put the stickers in and I couldn’t figure out how to secure the background on. It looked ok when I finished it but it did leak a bit. This craft kit was a difficult to put together but I’m glad I tried it!

Sand art kit – I love doing sand art I remember doing it when I was a kid. I found this kit at Target. It came with two plastic molds for sand art. One was a large moon and the other was a shooting star that could be put on a necklace. They included a string for the shooting star necklace. I found the kit fun and easy to use . I really liked the way my art turned out. Instructions were included in this kit but I found it easy to use even with out them. This was my favorite kit out of the three I used this time.

 

My Little Pony pop outz ! – This simple kit came with two ponies and three markers. The ponies came with little stands so you could display your art when you finished. I used some of my own markers to color the ponies as well as the ones that came with the kit. I enjoyed coloring them and I’m happy with the way they tuned out.

Fun with arts and crafts kits

Hello, my bucket list friends, I love being creative and making fun works of art ! I often buy arts and crafts kits and then use them in my down time. I’ve been having fun with the craft kits and art supplies that I have on my art shelf. I can’t wait to tell you all about it. Here we go.

Fun with arts and crafts

Sand art necklace kit – I got this fun and simple kit at the Dollar Tree . It came with a small plastic heart that had a loop on the cap to make a necklace. It also came with brightly colored sand and a tool to move the sand around but did not include any string for a necklace. I had a fun time pouring the sand into the heart and watching the bright colors make fun patterns. I’m happy with the way this project turned out.

Bracelets

Now, it’s time for one of my all-time favorite art projects. Pipe cleaner bracelets! I also got the supplies for this craft at the Dollar Tree. All I needed for this craft were some pipe cleaners and beads the Dollar Tree had both colorful pipe cleaners and colorful beads . I had a good time putting the beads onto the pipe cleaners. I loved the way the bracelets looked when I put them on. This is a fun and easy craft I recommend it !

Valentine’s day painting

And here is another Dollar Tree craft kit! This Valentine’s day themed paint kit had two cute little teddy bears holding hands. As normal with these craft kits the paint was not very high quality but it was a lot of fun to paint the very cute bears. When the painting dried it was a little hard to see parts of the original picture underneath. If I used water color paint it may have turned out better. I think I’ll do that next time!

Summertime Arts and Crafts !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! The sunny days of summertime are a perfect time to get creative! I have three projects that I recently finished and I can’t wait to tell you all about them. Here we go!

 

Summertime Arts and Crafts !

The first summertime craft I’m gonna tell you about is this awesome Disney necklace kit that I bought at CVS. This small kit contained everything needed to make the perfect Disney necklace. The necklace it’s self was easy to get started. I just opened the necklace by pulling the connectors apart then putting on the beads. I decided to put the beads in big color blocks. Then when I was done with that, it was time to put on the super cute Minnie Mouse charm and then this awesome craft was complete!

 

 

Craft number two was a set of wooden animals that I bought at the Goodwill. The idea of this craft kit was to put the animals together and then glue extra pieces on to some of the animals. I decided to put a few of the animals together then I painted them with water color paint. I didn’t follow the directions on this kit exactly but I’m happy with how I chose to make the animals. I didn’t make all the animals in the kit but the ones I did make are so cute and I’m happy with the way they turned out.

 

The last craft I’m going to tell you about was not a craft kit at all. I saved the Starbucks cup from the s’mores frappuccino that I got on June first. I decorated the cup with all kinds of fun stickers! I had a fun time going through my big box of stickers and choosing the perfect ones to decorate the cup with. Now, it’s the perfect pencil holder!

Be creative and rock on – Christina Epperly
