Easy Fall Art Project

Looking for an easy decoration for fall that doesn’t cost you a lot of money?  This little art project is so simple to make, completely customizable and you can add any stencil design so that it is totally one of a kind!

All you need

Canvas

Stencil

Paint in choice of colors as well as a dark paint for the top

paint brushes

mod podge

Begin by painting your canvas in your chosen colors.  Now the important thing here is to be sort of random with your painting. I did stripes so that it wasn’t all one color.  Now, once you have painted your stripes, blend your lines together with your paint brush.  I used the same brush for all of it, and blotted it in between colors so that it wouldn’t end up being a yucky muddy color.

I used paint that I had on hand and wanted it to be fall colors.  I ended up using a burnt orange, mustard yellow and a dark blue.  Now, let your stripes dry good before you do anything else.

Once your paint is dry add a thin coat of mod podge. Use the matte so that it doesn’t leave streaks.  Once you put on your mod podge and let it dry, your canvas will be a little tacky, which makes it easier to apply the stencil.  If you are using vinyl this is especially helpful because the vinyl tends to not stick to the canvas otherwise.  Peel off your stencil and apply to the canvas.  Apply the vinyl as if you were going to keep it on the canvas.  This way when you pull the stencil off, it will leave the colored canvas in it’s place.

Once you get your stencil on, you are ready for a top coat in a dark color.  When painting over your stencil, be sure to blot, DO NOT RUB your paintbrush like you normally would.  If you do this, you will end up either getting paint under your stencil or pulling the stencil up off of the canvas.  Look in the top left corner of the photo above, that is where I accidentally did that very thing.  It is even more important with a canvas because it is already so hard to get the vinyl to stick!

Let the paint dry for a few minutes, and then pull off your stencil.  Use tweezers or something to grab the end to avoid smearing the  paint or getting paint under the stencil.  Just pull it off and toss it.  Once you have done that you are done!  I had a couple of spots with a little bleeding, but I think it adds to it to give it a weathered effect.  What do you think?  This would also be a great craft for the kids.  Let them paint the canvas and add a stencil for them.  They will love the surprise when you pull the stencil off!

Lego Party Decor, Make Your Child’s Age Out Of Legos!

Recently I had a son ask for a Lego Movie party.  We are all about legos in our house!

As much as I love my kids having birthday parties and celebrating their big day with their friends, financially over the top parties are not an option.  I have to get creative and I spend very little on their parties.  For me personally, I would rather use that money on their birthday gifts rather than decorations for a party.  Anywho, I will climb off my soapbox now! ;)

When he said he wanted a Lego Movie party I was relieved!  That is pretty easy to pull off without a lot of extra money being spent.

If you have many legos, this should be simple!

You will need:

A lego baseplate (if you don’t have one already, Amazon has an awesome price here!)

legos

time to put it together

I really can’t say a whole lot about how to assemble this one.  Since my son had just turned 9, I used the legos we had to put a number 9 on our baseplate.  It wasn’t really popping though, so I added the frame around it.  So simple, yet cute and better yet, free!  Who doesn’t love free?!

Personalized Phone Charger~Silly Face

We have a few Apple products around our house.  Between the Ipods and the Iphones, sometimes we get whose is whose mixed up.  Usually it doesn’t matter, but if someone wants to take their charger with them somewhere, or needs to use it,  it can lead to an argument (and no parent wants that!)

Here is an easy way to personalize your chargers so there is no more confusion about whose is whose!

Its pretty simple here is what you need:

A charger

Some googly eyes

Glue

That is!  I found a bag of googly eyes at the dollar store and chose 2 different sizes for fun.  Make sure your charger is right side up.  The top should be wider then the bottom.  Glue your eyes on to that part of the charger.

Perfect for little kids, they won’t let them out of their sight! Think stocking stuffer. Would make a great gift for a gadget lover with a sense of humor as well.
