This is my first crafting series that I am starting, that I will now call it “crafting corner with Brielle”. This will most likely take places on Sunday, so that I can compile all of the fun crafts that we did during the week(s).
Brielle is so funny to do crafts with, because she LOVES to gather all of the supplies, sit down on her little table that we use for her “learning time”, and she is just so eager to get started. Well, that lasts for a few minutes until something is taking a bit longer than she was thinking it would in her head, lol!
This week I am going to discuss crafting with paint (without getting dirty!), how to make a picture collage without tape, and “spicing” up a picture frame with a message! 🙂
The first craft all you will is: A mason jar with a lid, dry pinto beans (about 5 of them), 1 piece of crafting paper or a piece of paper, and paint (only using a few drops)
First, you will fold the paper into 4 pieces, and cut 1/4 the paper, or small enough to fit into the side of your mason jar.
Then you will add the paint on the bottom of the jar and the pinto beans on top of that.
You will put the cover on, and shake it up (Brielle LOVED this part, but her shake wasn’t quite strong enough, so mommy had to finish that part) and pull it out and set it to dry! It’s so easy and SO fun!
Brielle’s little creation!
For the next craft, you need a board or a place to put all of your pictures on, scissors, modge podge, pictures, and a brush to smooth out the modge podge.
First, we cut the pictures in different sizes and put the pictures on the board to see what would fit right. (we did a sister board, so we collected all the pictures of her and Rochelle.)
Then you will rub modge podge on both the bottom of the picture, and the place where you are putting it on the board, until all of the pictures are in the correct place and you will wait 20 mins for them to dry.
Once the bottom is dry, you will rub one more (thin) layer of modge podge over the top surface of the pictures and wait 20 mins for it to dry, and you are done! 🙂
The next and final craft is “spicing” up a regular photograph when gifting someone with a picture! 🙂
For this craft I used: A picture frame that you can write on the outside edges, spray paint, ribbon for the bow, permanent marker, and solid paint for stripes if you prefer, a glue gun, and a small yarn to glue to the back of the frame.
Made the bow and then spray painted the frame gold, and placed the picture in the center of it after it had dried.
I then super glued the bow to the top of the frame and then painted the line on the top of the frame.
I painted on the front of the frame, and wrote a couple of things on the sides of the frames for my parents.
I glued the yarn to the back so that they can hang up the picture, and I wrote a little note to them on the back.
I hope all of the crafts were easy enough to understand. I am MORE than happy to explain anything more in depth with you as well, if you have any questions!
I had so much creating these crafts with my daughter, and I hope you will have some fun as well! 🙂
