I'm so excited to let you all know that this year for the holidays, I have teamed up with CANVAS CORP BRANDS to bring you this fun stocking decorating kit! CCB asked a few of us on the Crew to pick some of our favorite things to group together and offer it at a discounted price.
This box is valued at $40, but Canvas Corp is able to offer it at about $25. That's a huge discount!
I selected these items with the theme of red and green DIY stockings in mind. There are two plain canvas stockings along with burlap flowers, ticking fringe, two colors of cord, a package of mini clothespins in Christmas colors, and two bottles of Tattered Angels' High Impact paint in red and green. Everything you might need to create some stunning stockings with!
I will be doing my best to decorate a few samples of these stockings and posting them here on the blog as inspiration for what you might want to do with your stockings, as well. These are fantastic blanks to stencil, write, iron-on, applique, sew on, and much more! I think they would make fabulous gifts, too, if you filled them with goodies to give away.
So please, take a look at this kit in the CANVAS CORP BRANDS STORE!
Canvas Corp has also been so generous they are letting me GIVE AWAY ONE of these kits to one of my lucky followers! I will be working on the best way to go about a giveaway and I'll be posting it soon, so keep an eye on my social media for your chance to win!
Thanks for stopping by. Happy Crafting!
Christmas is coming soon, and as much as we crafters and DIY-ers love to make our own home decor, lets not forget about our kids!
My toddler is getting to where he is curious about my craft room and the things in there. Doesn't bother me a bit! I think its fun when we can do a craft together, especially on a day that we are stuck inside.
This project is super simple and you probably have most of these inexpensive items on hand already. All you need is:
A paper plate
Glue (I used Aleene's)
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist
A box, towel, or some other kind of table covering
Ribbon and embellishments
String or cord
Start by cutting a hole out of the center of the paper plate. Dont worry about making a perfect circle, you wont see it anyway after the cotton balls are glued on.
After your plate center is cut out, glue on the cotton balls to completely cover the surface of the plate.
Now comes the fun part! Spraying! I took a cardboard box to place our wreath in to contain the spray, but you could use an old towel, some kraft paper to cover your table, or even take it outside to spray. Go ahead and spray all over your cotton balls in any color you wish. I used Moss Glimmer Mist. I also sprayed a few single cotton balls using Lobster Glimmer Mist because I wanted to glue them on to look like berries.
Now, I will warn you, the cotton balls take a little time to dry. They are meant to suck up moisture so go ahead and spray them, let them dry, and come back later to finish!
I glued on the red cotton balls around the wreath and then took some red crepe paper to create a bow for the bottom. Then, all you need to do is punch a hole in the top of the paper plate and add a string to hang it by!
Super easy and its something the kids will enjoy! You can get creative with the different embellishments you put on the wreath. Try glittery ribbon, little Christmas bells, leaves, and anything else you have on hand! The kids will love using their creativity!
I think it would also be fun to add a photo in the middle and give it to the grandparents. Grandparents love this kind of thing, right??
I did take a video of the process while I was doing this craft with my son. My toddler is almost two, and this is totally appropriate for his age but you can also use it for older kids as well! With a little help with the glue and the spraying my son had no problems doing this (other than just being distracted by all the other cool toys in Mommy's craft room).
Hope you enjoy the video!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope this gives you some fun ideas you can do with your kids or in your classroom.
