bird house painting fun!

Hello,my bucket list friends! I’m home from work today because I have a ganglion cyst on my foot that makes it painful to walk. I decided to use some of the extra time I had today to do one of the craft kits that I’ve been wanting to do. I bought this bird house craft kit  at Five Below. In addition to the supplies that were in the kit I used some paint and paint brushes that I already had. I decided to do this craft kit outside to avoid any extra clean up. As soon as I started painting I felt relaxed. I loved picking out the colors and deciding where I wanted to put the.I’m very pleased with my colorful  bird house. I wonder what craft kit I will make next?

Barbie Jewelry box art kit

Hello,my bucket list friends! In my last blog post I mentioned that I got a Barbie jewelry box kit from the 90s at savers. It’s a really unique item and I can’t wait to tell you more about it. When I saw the box sitting on the shelf I was so excited about it! I could tell that the box had been opened before but I still wanted to get this kit. When I opened the kit I saw that it had already been painted. However since the paint was pretty light I knew that I could just paint over it. Most of the paint that came with the kit was used up so I decided to use some of the paint that I had in my room. It turned out pretty great. The kit did come with beads but I don’t think most of the beads that were in the kit were the ones that originally came with the kit. The beads that were in the kit were pretty cool so I was not disappointed. This craft kit was really unique I haven’t seen many that are like it. There are lot of paint your own box kits but haven’t seen any that are similar to this one that I can remember. It was a lot of fun to do a craft kit from the ’90s and it was a great bonus that it was also a Barbie craft kit. Have you found any craft kits from the ’90s while you’ve been thrifting?

Painting magnets and a tea set

Hello, my buck list friends! I buy so many craft kits and can’t keep up with all of them. However I recently completed two of them. One was a kit where you paint your own wooden magnets the other one was a tiny tea set that you could paint. I love doing craft kits where you can paint an object without having to build or make anything first. Of course there’s nothing wrong with building or making something it can be a lot of fun. I just like to dive right into the painting part. The wooden magnets were all sea animals. It was fun to paint the smiling sea creatures and I really like the way they turned out. I got this craft kit at Savers and I’m very happy that I did. The next craft kit I got at a local toy store. I remember getting a craft kit similar to this when I was younger but that one was a larger tea set. This one was so tiny and cute. I decided to paint smiley faces on the tea set along with some dots. I like mixing colors when. I paint and I thinks it makes things look really cool. I wonder what arts and craft kit I will do next ?

Breyer horse art kit

Hello, my bucket list friends! I recently did a really cool art kit. I love Breyer horses and when I saw this art kit I knew I would enjoy it. This craft kit is a simple painting art kit. I’ve done other kits similar to this one. However I liked that this kit had bigger paint containers then other kits I’ve used. It is also worth noting that the horse figure and the paint in this kit seemed to be high quality. It’s no surprise but I enjoyed this craft kit and I love the horse figure I painted.

Blogmas day 24 Christmas ornament DIY.

Hello, my bucket list friends! Today I decorated a Christmas ornament. I got the main part of the ornament from the Dollar tree I filled the ornament with pom poms that also came from the Dollar Tree. After I put the pom poms in the ornament I knew it needed a little something else. I found some glitter glue in another Christmas ornament kit and I used that to decorate the outside of the clear plastic ornament. I’m happy with the way this project turned out but it is still drying at the moment. Have you ever done any DIY Christmas ornaments?

Blogmas day 5 Candy cane art kit

Hello, my bucket list friends! For today’s blogmas post ,I decided to do a simple Christmas themed art kit. I bought this art kit at the Dollar Tree. It’s a simple painting art kit. I was excited to do this art kit because you paint wooden candy canes. Candy canes are one of my favorite candies plus I love the red sparkly bows on the candy canes. This kit came with three paint colors red, yellow and white. I ended up only using the red and white paint. I often find these art kits to be relaxing and that was the case with this kit. I noticed that as soon as I started painting I began to feel more relaxed. I’m also very happy with the way this project turned out.
