Wooden bird house picture painting

Hello, my bucket list friends. I recently completed another craft kit that I had in my room. It was a very cute wooden picture of a bird house with birds that you paint. With out further delay let’s dive on in !

 

 

Wooden bird house picture painting

I was looking at my arts and craft supplies when I found this kit that I got from the Dollar Tree. One thing I loved about it was that the picture of the birds and the bird house was printed on wood and not paper. This kit came with the wooden picture , paints, a paint brush and a string to hang up your picture with. When I was painting I didn’t really care that much that the colors were mixing. I enjoying  painting so much that sometimes I don’t focus on the results. Instead of painting the whole bird house I decided to cover it with dots! I like making dots when I paint. When I was done painting I hung the picture up in my room. I did enjoy this craft kit and I would like to do more kits like this.

Sun catcher crazy !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I realize recently. I had a lot of sun catcher art kits in my room that I had not opened yet. I deiced to gather them all up and paint them. I can’t wait to tell you more about it so here we go !

 

 

 

Sun catcher crazy !

The first step to completing this project was to decide which sun catcher to paint first. I deiced to start by painting a frog sun catcher that I got at Walgreens. I really liked the way this sun catcher turned out . I used so many different paint sets that came with all of the kits but I’m pretty sure the paint quality of the first kit was one of the best. Some of the kits had been sitting in my room for a while and they did not have the best paint quality. One of the kits had sat on my windowsill for so long that the paint just didn’t look right at all so I didn’t even open it . I used paint from other kits to paint that sun catcher. I had a fun time painting all of the sun catchers. I’m so glad I deiced to paint the sun catchers it was a good project that provided me with both relaxation and entertainment.

creativity to the rescue !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I’m pretty sure we all know that life can throw a lot of stress our way sometimes. There are many different ways of coping with stress such as exercising , reading , playing music and much more! For me being creative is what helps me cope with stress. On Monday I went to Petroglyph a ceramic studio. I painted an Elephant and an egg , my mom painted a beautiful sunflower plate. I love being able to sit down and focus on making art. I love the way I painted my elephant and egg ! I also have my bedroom pretty well stocked with craft kits. I recently did a butterfly mosaic  craft kit that I got at the Good Will. This kit came with a cut out of a butterfly and foam pieces to to decorate the butter fly with. Originally the foam pieces were sticky and simply stuck to the butterfly  but the kit was older and the adhesive had dried.  I used glue to stick the pieces on. I enjoyed putting the foam pieces on the butterfly. It would be fun to do another kit like this.

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.

Fun with Yay Maker !

Hello , my bucket list friends ! Yesterday, my friend and I did a paint night by Yay Maker. for those of  you don’t know what a paint night or Yay maker is let me tell you. It’s basically an art class where everyone is making the same painting. An instructor leads the group in a step by painting class. It was a lot of fun and I can’t wait to tell you more ! Let’s get going !

 

Fun with Yay Maker !

My friend and I signed up for this class a while ago but when yesterday finally came, I thought we were going to miss it . There were two accidents on the highway and that made traffic awful ! I was so upset because I knew we were going to be late and I wasn’t sure if they would let us join the class but they did ! The only thing that happened because we were late is that we didn’t get to sit together but that was ok because our paintings were a surprise to each other ! Once I sat down it only took a little while for me to catch up to the rest of the class. The hardest part for me was getting the turtles head to look how it was supposed to. It was also ok if you didn’t follow the directions exactly. In the original painting the turtle had a big flower on it’s back but I ended up doing something different and it turned out really cool . There were also other people in the class including my friend who did something different with the design on the turtle’s back. Once I got over the stress of being late, I had a lot of fun letting my creativity flow !  It was cool to look around and other peoples creativity as well ! Overall it was a fun experience and I recommend doing it of you get a chance.

 

 

Three fun Target crafts

Hello, My bucket list friends ! I love buying little craft kits from the Target dollar bins and I finally had some time to do a few of them. I had a fun time doing these little projects and I can’t wait to tell you all about it. Here we go !

 

 

Three fun Target crafts

 

The first craft kit I tried was painting a wooden snail. The kit came with three colors of paint blue,green and orange. It was a quick and easy project but it was a lot fun to paint the very cute snail. I added some dots to my snail to give it whimsical look .  I was very happy with the way the snail turned out. I recommend this craft kit.

 

 

The 2nd craft kit I did was a paint your own clothes pins kit. this cute kit had three different clothes pins with different food shapes at the top. This paint kit was similar to the snail it came with three paint colors. It was also a quick and fun craft. The clothes pins open and close just fine but I have not use them to hold anything yet.  This is also another kit that I recommend .

 

 

 

The last craft kit I did was different then the the first two. This is a tissue paper project that mimics stained glass. In addition to the kit you also need to have a pair of scissors and a hole puncher. To get started you had to take the snail off the plastic it was on and stick it on to a special piece of paper that was in the kit and then you had pull the paper back to reveal the sticky side. When I stuck the snail on the paper the top part of the snail got a little smashed. I also had to cut the paper to pull it back because I have very short nails. Then it was time to decorate the snail. I sprinkled the tissues paper on to the sticky side of the snail. I didn’t have a hole punch handy so I stuck the string to the sticky part of the snail. I cut around the snail like the directions said but then I stuck the snail to the part on the paper that I had pealed off . The I cut around the Snail again. I liked the way it turned out. Just to be clear I didn’t follow all of the directions exactly but I would still recommend this kit. It just takes more time and planning then the other kits.
