Dollar Store Crafts

Just a quick post today to show you what I made with the rest of the stuff I bought at the dollar store the other day. (Same shopping trip,as the black tinted glasses that I etched in previous post! ๐Ÿ˜‰)

I while back I bought 3 rolls of burlap from the dollar store for $3 per roll. I have hung onto this all summer but I did see that these rolls are still available at my local dollar store. I hope this is something that they stock regularly because it is a great deal and I want to make more burlap crafts!

I make this autumn wreath for about $12 in supplies and it took a little less than 1 hour to complete! ALL of the supplies came from Dollar Tree except for the burlap that was Dollarama.

In the craft section I found the wire wreath base in square and round shapes. I bought both but only used the round one for this project. The patterned wire ribbon, mesh, pumpkin 3 pack, leaves in a pack of 2, scarecrows in a pack of 2, metal word 3 pack (saved 2 for future projects) and 2 pack of bows. Each package or item was $1.25!

I loved making this project! I am going to have to try this dollar store crafting again!

Cricut

Glass Etching With Cricut

I was killing time in a dollar store last week when I found some gorgeous black tinted tall glasses. I put 4 of them in my cart along with about $40 worth of other stuff. I knew just what I wanted to do with them and today I finally found a little time to work with them!

A bit of back story here:

My 11 year son has been bugging, I mean seriously driving me crazy, to watch the movie IT. I told him under no circumstances was he allowed to watch it but that I would find him a different show that would be a little more age appropriate but was still “scary”. I had watched a few episodes of Supernatural a couple years ago but for some reason I never really got into it. I decided to give it another try but this time I would watch it with someone. That someone is my son. (It is rated PG according to Netflix so judge me if you will) Anyways he loves the show and we have been binge watching it all summer. We are currently half way through season 8. He loves it so much that he is going to dress up as Dean for Halloween. I will post more on that closer to Halloween as he wants us to make a hunting kit and everything!

Back to the present:

As I said above my son loves Supernatural. I thought that these black tinted glasses would make great themed glasses for him. I had purchased the svgs previously to make t-shirts (we still have to do that!) I cut the svgs out of a stencil vinyl with my Cricut Explore Air 2 and weeded out the parts that I wanted etched into the glass, placed the stencil on the glasses and made sure that it was firmly attached especially around the inner edges where I wanted the etch to be crisp.

I put a generous amount of Rustoleom Tub & Tile etching cream. I left it on for about 15 minutes. I scrapped off as much etching cream as I could without moving the stencil then rinsed the rest off in my stainless steel kitchen sink.

After all of the rinsing I removed the stencil and rinsed again. I love the finished look! I was only able to make 3 this afternoon because I didn’t realize that I had broken the 4th glass on the way home from the store. I will go back tomorrow to get a few more of these black tinted glasses!

Here is the set of 3. If you are a fan of the show you will know the significance of these symbols.

I am most excited with how this one turned out! I had planned on giving these to him for Christmas but I was so excited with how they turned out that I decided to give them to him today! I will work on a different theme for his older brother.

Supplies needed

  • Cricut Explore to cut stencil (or prepurchased adhesive stencil)
  • Stencil vinyl
  • Etching cream (I used Tub & Tile by Rustoleom)
  • Sponge paint brush
  • glass

Red & White Queen-Creative Moments Challenge #137

Welcome to my Creative Moments project for the Creative Moments Challenge Blog Challenge #137. The theme this week is all about fairies and other magic/mystic/fantasy creatures.

My sponsor for this round of challenges is

There are so many pretty digi stamps at the Mari Digi Stamps store! My chosen digi is Red and White Queen. I thought this would be part of a really cute and fanciful table centre piece. I started by colouring the image with Spectrum Noir markers.

I used permanent metallic markers to colour the crowns and buckles. Fussy cutting is not my friend! ๐Ÿ˜•

The cup was cut with my Cricut.

Here is the complete project! I hope you like it!

Supplies used: Mari Digi stamp, Spectrum Noir markers, Chameleon markers, DCWV card stock, & various ephemera.

Progress Made-Challenging Myself

*This post may contain affiliate links. ๐Ÿ™‚

I have been trying to make things for myself. It was a sort of New Years resolution . I am working on my 12 Month Journey Of Craftiness. You can follow it on my Facebook page or on Instagram. (#12monthjourneyofcraftiness #scrapatini)

I have specific things that I want to accomplish for myself in a crafty way this year. My goal is to complete the following goals each month:

โœ… 2 scrapbook layouts

โœ… 4 cards

โœ… try at least one new product or technique

โœ… complete at least one PHD (project half done)

โœ… to have more fun, contests, and interaction with my followers

It is already January 20 and since I have made my journey a priority, I have completed my monthly goal except for finishing a PHD! I am working on that PHD but I have a ways to go to complete it.

The new product that I have tried this month is coloured pencils from Prismacolor. They are amazing, very high quality colouring pencils. They have a great lay down of colour and are very smooth.

The Prismacolor pencils are available here >>>Prismacolor Pencils .

They are currently on a super sale at Blitsy for approximately 87% off! Regular price $93.66 CAD but on sale for $12.49 CAD. *Sale can end at any time so if you want them go get them now!

I have completed 2 layouts. Both are of my terrific and cute sons from our 2014 Hawaiian vacation although I didn’t theme them as vacation layouts. I used some gorgeous Wild Whisper Designs Paper (company from Calgary, Canada! Yay!) and themed them more as a self-esteem layout.

I have also completed several cards and a wine bottle tag.

Have you make a crafty New Years Resolution? Are you taking time to do what you enjoy? Have you made something that you are proud of? Let me know!
