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!

Three craft kits one day !

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’m very excited to announce that yesterday I crossed another item off my bucket list. The item that I crossed off is #228 do three Melissa and Doug craft kits in one day!  I’m exited to tell you more about my crafting adventure so let’s get to it!

 

Three craft kits one day !

For this bucket list item I ordered three Melissa and Doug craft kits from Amazon. I wanted the kits to be different from each other so I chose a decoupage cat, a wooden race car kit and a sand art kit. The first kit I opened was the decoupage cat. This kit came with a cardboard cat figure,stickers,glue and some items to decorate the cat with one the glue was dry. The first step for this project was to cover the cat with the stickers. The stickers came in a bunch of different styles. I really liked the dot stickers. Once the stickers were covering the cat it was time to cover the cat in the sparkly glue. When I was reading the instructions I noticed that it would take a few hours for the glue to dry. I’m glad I started with this kit first. The next kit I opened was the wooden race car craft. The first step was to put the wheels on the car. The kit came with glue to use for the wheels but when I snapped the wheels in to place they stayed on so I decided to skip the gluing part. Then it was time to paint the car. I used the yellow and blue paints for my car but there are other colors in this kit. The next step was to put on the stickers that came in the kit but I had to let the paint dry first so I moved on to the sand art kit. This kit came with three bottles of different shapes ,lots of colorful sands , corks to close up the bottles and other tools. I found this craft kit to be the most relaxing . There is something soothing about pouring sand in to bottles. I was happy with the way all three bottles of sand turned out but the rectangle one is my favorite. After the sand craft I put some stickers on my race car. Later that night I finished the cat craft by adding the eye stickers and the ribbon.  I enjoyed my little craft kit adventure. I wonder what craft kit I’ll do next !

Painting a piggy bank

Hello, my bucket list friends. As some of you know I love Melissa and Doug craft kits! Today I completed a paint your own piggy bank kit that I got at Savers. I can’t wait to tell you more about it so here we go!

 

Painting a piggy bank

I was excited when I got this kit at the thrift store but today was finally the day that I got to use it. This kit came with a very cute piggy bank, paint ,a paint brush ,glitter glue and stickers. I started off by painting the pig then I let it dry before painting some more. After a while I added some glitter glue. I decided to dry the pig with a hair dryer because I didn’t want to wait. The hair dryer did make the pig hot to the touch so air drying is probably the best option. I had a fun time doing this craft kit. I got paint allover my hands but I think that is all part of the fun! I’m happy with the way my piggy bank turned out. Rock On – Christina Epperly

 

 

 

Mirror craft kit

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I just completed a very cute Melissa and Doug craft kit. I got this kit and the Goodwill, I was very excited when I saw it. Now, is the time to tell you how fun it was ! Here we go !

 

Mirror craft kit

This kit was a great thrift store find ! It came with a flower shaped mirror and items to decorate it with. I loved the craft jewels and the glitter glue ! I enjoyed gluing on the jewels and making dots on the mirror with two different colors of glitter glue! Decorating the mirror was very relaxing. I love the stress relief and happiness I get from crafting!   On the package it said to decorate both sides of the mirror so that’s what I did. After letting the mirror dry for awhile, I used the regular flat stickers that came with the kit to decorate the back. I just have to say that Melissa and Doug makes really good craft kits and I can’t wait to try more of them !

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.

painting my own magnets

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I love doing arts and crafts kits and last month
I got a very cool Melissa and Doug craft kit at the Goodwill. Melissa and Doug make some really great products so I was very excited about this kit. I had a great time using this craft kit and I can’t wait to tell you more about it so here we go !

painting my own magnets

When I saw this kit I was very excited because it was on my Amazon wish list and here it was at the Goodwill plus I could get it right away with no shipping needed. The most exciting thing was that it was in the original package and had clearly never been opened. Things have been pretty busy for me lately so I was happy when I had sometime to relax and make art. The paint and the magnets in this kit seemed to be pretty high quality. It was both easy and fun to paint and decorate the magnets. I enjoyed choosing what colors and designs I would use for each magnet. The kit also came with jewel stickers and pink glitter glue. I like the way the stickers made the magnets pop a little more. I also had fun adding some glitter glue to the magnets as well. I was very happy with the way the magnets turned out and I would love to do another kit like this sometime.
