~ * Star Hairpins *~

Supplies:

  • Felt (in color of your choice)
  • scissors
  • Hot glue
  • Glitter paint
  • Bobby pins

1- Cut out 2 stars and 1 small circle from felt.

2- Hot glue together the two stars (if you used the thicker kind of felt you can skip this step).

3- Place the circle through the bobby pin as pictured.

4- Hot glue the felt circle with the bobby pin to the back of the star.

5- Paint the star with the glitter paint. Make multiple coats for extra sparkle!

Let the paint dry for about 4 hours (or overnight). The glitter will adhere to the felt, but if you see some falling just add a coat of Mod Podge to deal it. Make as many as you want in any color and shape you like! =)

~* Vial Necklace Tutorial *~

1. Gather supplies: Your favorite nail polish, krazy glue, toothpick, and small bottle.

2. With the help of the toothpick put the nail polish inside the little bottle.

3. Add a thin layer of krazy glue around the cork to create a permanent seal.

4. Let dry! After it’s fully dry just add it to any chain and it’s ready to wear =)

I hope you guys liked this short, quick, and easy tutorial!

~ * Kirby Charm Tutorial * ~

Supplies:

  • Oven-baked clay in colors pink and red
  • Toothpick
  • Headpin
  • Acrylic paint in colors black, white, red, blue, and magenta

1. Make 3 balls of pink clay (2 small for the arms 1 big for the body) and 2 red ovals (shoes).

2. Attach the arms to the body. Smooth out the edges with a toothpick, this is going to help connect the clay and looks nicer.

3. Attach the shoes to the body, these you don’t have to smooth out.

4. Put a headpin all the way through. I like to start from one hand to the opposite shoe, this way it looks like he’s hanging on to something ^-^   Bake! Bake according to the directions of your clay. 

5. After the charm cools down start painting. Have a picture on hand to use as a reference. Start with the mouth (to help keep symmetry) then add the eyes. Without the twinkles in his eyes he looks really creepy! Lol

6- Add the details. Kirby has a white twinkle and a little bit of blue on each eye. I like to gradually add the cheeks using a Q-Tip.

Done! You can glaze the charm and place it anywhere you want. I made mine into a necklace by attaching my Kirby charm to one of my cake charms  He doesn’t want to let go of that cake! lol

Hope you guys liked this tutorial! =)

~ * Simple braided suede bracelet * ~ 

Supplies:

  • Suede ribbon
  • Some Beads and/or charms
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • A ruler ( helps with symmetry and keeping the length of the bracelet) 

This bracelet was really quick to make, it took me about 10 or less minutes to finish.

It’s perfect as a fun quick craft for a sleepover, party, Sunday school, or for yourself  but not so much for selling ( it might come undone if you pull on it too much).

If you are planning to make these for selling I suggest using a clamp to close off both ends of the bracelet or starting your braid by wrapping around with one strand and gluing (or sowing) in place to secure the braid.

I thought this one would be easier to follow with just pictures than describing it step by step with words but if there are any questions, feel free to ask! =)

Have fun making your own!

~*Picture frame earring holder *~

Supplies:

  • Wood frame (mine is a 5x7 laser cut frame)
  • Plastic canvas
  • Acrylic paint
  • Hot glue
  • Scissors
  • Paintbrush. 

1-Cut the plastic canvas so it fits the frame nicely.

2-Hot glue the plastic canvas to the frame. Add an extra layer of hot glue on top of the plastic canvas and in between the little squares to reinforce.

3-Turn over the frame and paint it. Using a big fluffy brush helps get rid of any paint streaks.

4-Let it dry and add another layer of paint if necessary.

5-Done! Now you can hang it on the wall and keep your earrings organized =)

*********Side Notes***********

Right now Michaels is having a sale on the laser cut frames, mine was only $2! Plastic canvas come in many colors, pick the one that will match your paint. Even a small frame can hold a good amount of earrings. I have a small frame 4”x5” that holds about 12 pairs (8 studs & 4 dangly earrings or 20 studs). If you don’t want to hang it on the wall you can buy a frame/ canvas stand to use on a flat surface.
