DIY Ornament, Keychain, Knick Knack

So, how to Do It Yourself, economical and inexpensive knick knack, ornament, charm, or gift.

So, over the kids spring break , we decided to make gifts for people. The little girls wanted to make a charm bracelet and necklace for their mom, for her birthday. So we went on pinterest and saw a picture of a silver painted pendant with a child’s finger print, you saw it too right?? 

Well the directions were pretty vague, so I messed this up twice. It was either too much water, or too little of water. And then I figured it out. So, the very first picture above with the recipe, is not mine. I found it on pinterest. It just made it easier to post this. So I do not take credit for that photo. 

So with that said, Here is how we began this journey:

What you will need:

Mixing bowl

Spoon

Flour

Salt

Water

First: Add all the ingredients in the bowl and stir until dough consistency.

Second: Sprinkle flour on the counter so you can mold your dough.

Third: Mold you charm and put a head pin in if you want a charm, or a keychain finding in for a keychain, or a headpin to make an ornament. Your choice.

Fourth : Put molded and sculpted item onto a baking sheet non-greased.

Fifth : Place baking sheet carefully in oven, on 250 degrees F, for 2 hours or until hardened.

Sixth : Let the items cool to touch.

Seventh: Paint 🙂

 

Above I just crafted a MMA Glove by hand by staring at a picture of a glove. It wasn’t too hard. After I baked it I then carefully painted it to be a keychain, in the pictures you see my finished product without the gloss.

This really made for a fun project, easy, inexpensive and time consuming. I recommend doing this with your kids or kids you watch. It makes for a fun, no tv activity.

Flower or Pin wheel Bows

I am trying out more abstract or harder designs and styled bows. For these ones, I tried like a flower or pin wheel style. They actually came out super cute for being the first ones I tried out. What do you think?

Have you tried any different styles. I am trying many more as I am growing bored with just plain old bows. 

Check it out ❤

New Earring Display !!

So, at my last craft fair I seen different sorts of earrings displays, and was on the hunt for one. Well, I finally found the cutest one, and at the flea market none the less. I was excited to find them, it was a little steep for what it is, for the flea market, but a steal none the less. I have been storing it in the corner for months waiting to use it. And today I finally started hanging them. I have them by styles and gold or silver. 

I now have an even bigger urge to stay up late and knock out some new designs to fill the rest of it. 

Well, for $18 , it wasn’t bad. Cause I am a nerd like that and I love new things and being able to play with them lol. 

Here are some pics of the top , it has 6 rows, and 6 pairs a side, and it has four sides. So it holds tons of earrings. And its pretty cute and old fashioned looking, Ill try to squeeze a picture in it tomorrow, but until then here is what it looks like so far. Enjoy..
