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 13 wooden gingerbread house

Hello, my bucket list friends ! As I write this I’m standing in a long line to get into whole foods. So I thought now would be a good time to catch up on my blogmas posts.¬† I was looking through my craft kits and I found this super cute wooden gingerbread house craft kit. This kit included wooden gingerbread people in addition to the house. It also came with markers to color the wooden pieces. The small markers that came with this kit worked surprisingly well. They didn’t run out of color as used them to decorate the wooden pieces. I enjoyed doing this craft kit and I’m happy with they way it looks. Have you ever done a craft kit similar to this one ?

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.

Pumpkin decorating!

Hello, my bucket list friends I recently finished decorating two pumpkins that I got at the pumpkin patch. I had a fun time decorating them and I can’t wait to tell you all about it. Let’s get to it!

Pumpkin decorating

For my first pumpkin I decided to paint it with the blue and green paint that I got from Michaels. I had fun covering my pumpkin in dots! This is a very simple but very fun way to decorate. I also painted some lines going down the pumpkin. I really liked the overall look of this pumpkin when I finished it. For the next pumpkin I decorated it using a bag of wooden beads from the Dollar Tree. I simply glued the colorful wooden beads on to the pumpkin using my hot glue gun. I decided to do a circle of beads around the top of the pumpkin. Then I used the beads to make a happy face on the pumpkin. I had a lot of fun with this pumpkin decorating project ! Are you decorating pumpkins this year?

Mess free glitter art !?

Hello, my bucket list friends! Monday I did one of my favorite and much needed stress relieving activities art! I decided to look through a bunch of my art and craft kits and chose one. I decided to do a craft kit that was different for the ones I useally do. This Melissa and Doug craft kit said that it made mess free glitter art. If you are a fan of arts and crafts you know that mess free and glitter are two things that normally don’t go together. I was curious to see how this would work out. It took me a little while to figure out how this kit worked but once I did it was a lot of fun! The kit came with two pictures that you decorated the glitter sheets that came with the kit. The pictures had stickers that you removed then you pressed the glitter sheets on to sticky part that the sticker covered. A few times I accidentally used the wrong side of the glitter sheets but luckily I was able to recover from that mistake. In my opinion the kit really lived up to it’s promise of mess free glitter art. I was really happy with the way the art turned out and now that I know how to use these kits I would love to do more in the future!

Hello Bat!

Hello, my bucket list friends! I recently completed a fun craft kit. This kit came from CVS. It was a pretty simple kit where you painted a ceramic bat but the bat is also a magnet! This kit came with three colors of paint but I also used other paints that I had to paint the bat. This was a very quick art project but it was also a lot of fun. Also I just have to say that the bat is so cute! I would love to do more magnet kits like this.

Fun bucket list art !!

Hello,my bucket list friends! I’m excited to tell you that I’ve crossed another item off my bucket list ! This item was pretty easy to cross off and it was also a lot of fun! Without anymore delay let’s dive on in!

Fun Bucket list art !!

The item that I recently crossed off is number 231 make a sharpie tie-dye shirt. I saw this craft on Pinterest and I thought that it would be a fun addition to my list. For this craft all I needed was a white shirt , Sharpie markers and rubbing alcohol. I started off by drawing on the shirt. I let my imagination run wild. I loved how colorful the shirt was when I finished drawing on it. Then it was time to spray the shirt with rubbing alcohol to make the colors spread out like tie-dye. As I sprayed the shirt I noticed that some colors seemed to spread out more than others. I probably should have done this project outside because when I sprayed the shirt it soaked through the blanket on my bed. Anyways I like the way the shirt looks and I’m glad I did this art project.
