Pretty Stenciled Glitter Tags

Pretty Stenciled Glitter Tags

I was provided with the stencil, glitter, and sponges for this project, but all opinions are entirely my own!

I’m so excited to share this new product with all of you today as it’s the creation of one of my sweet, Atlanta-area blogger friends, Amy Anderson of Mod Podge Rocks!  With her new line, you can get intricate designs with Mod Podge and glitter using these stencils than you could with Mod Podge alone. You can also use sand and other “grainy” type items.  To “test drive” the stencils for myself, I chose the Starlite design and created some beautiful glittered tags, perfect for any gift, small or large!

To make a couple stenciled glitter tags for your next gift, you’ll need just a few things:

Mod Podge {I used the Sparkle variety}

Mod Podge Podgeable Glitters

Mod Podge Spouncer Applicators

Mod Podge Rocks! Peel & Stick Stencils

blank kraft tags

variety of thin ribbons

Let me first just say, I LOVE the Podgeable Glitters!  The packaging makes it so super easy to squeeze out just the right amount of glitter you need for the intricacy of the project.  Plus, I didn’t feel like I was wasting valuable glitter!

To make a tag, I simply peeled the stencil from the backing and adhered it to the tag where I thought it would look good.

I then used the foam spouncer to apply a layer of Mod Podge over the stencil design and onto my kraft tag.

Now here is where you could do one of two things.  You could either peel the stencil away and then apply the glitter to the design, or apply the glitter over the stencil.  I chose to apply it with the stencil still on and had beautiful results.

Once I was finished, I peeled the stencil back up and shook off the bit of excess glitter onto a piece of paper.  I added some pretty pearl stickers and a piece of colored ribbon to the top of the tag and voila!

I adore the finished results and have added the tags to my gift wrapping stash for future gifts.

This American Flag Plaque is perfect to add some 4th of July spirit to your mantel this week.  This post is sponsored by American Crafts, however, as always, this project and opinions are 100% my own!  I was thrilled to have the chance to craft with these amazing products!!

I’ll be the first to admit, since having a baby, I’ve hardly had time to work on any fun crafts or projects.  Luckily my mom is here for a couple of weeks, and I was able to play with these awesome glitter products by American Crafts to create a super cute and very festive American Flag Plaque to get our home 4th of July ready this year!

American Flag Plaque at Wait Til Your Father Gets Home, perfect decor for this 4th of July! #spon @AmCrafts #4thofJuly #redwhiteandblue

Fortunately I had everything I needed at home to create this unique decor, including the plaque and frame holder {both purchased at a craft store several months ago on sale}.

Just look at all these glittery goodies American Crafts sent my way!

materials

Supplies you’ll need:

American Crafts Glitter Cardstock in red, white & blue patterns and colors

American Crafts Glitter Tape White

American Crafts Glitter Tape Red

American Crafts Thickers Foam Letter Stickers

decorative plaque 

frame holder

ruler

scissors

double sided tape  

Now, there wasn’t much rhyme or reason to how I created the plaque.  I measured out the stripes and the blue area for the star field first.  With the exception of not actually including any stars, I wanted the rest of the flag to look as realistic as possible.  You know the drill, 13 stripes, 7 red, 6 white.  I used a combination of glitter cardstock and the glitter tape {which is so cool} to create the stripes.

I used a really cute glitter, polka dot piece of the blue cardstock for the star field and finished off the plaque with the foam letter stickers to spell out “Home of the Brave.”

I love how it looks on the bar in my kitchen!

{Kid-Friendly Ornaments with Mod Podge}

{Kid-Friendly Ornaments with Mod Podge}

What I’m about to show you is going to be shocking!  You will never believe all of the wonderful goodies I received from Plaid Crafts.  I was blown away {and so super excited} by all the possibilities of future projects to come!

I still can’t believe just how many awesome products I get to try out in the many weeks months to come.  Because, let’s be real…this stuff seems like it just may last for.ev.er!

Back to the sweet, glittery snowflakes seen above though.  Once I, and by I, I of course mean my wonderful, loving, patient, and very strong husband got all of our Christmas decor down from the attic, I quickly realized that the glass bulbs we purchased a few years ago for 80% on December 26th were simply not going to cut it this year.  Why you ask?  Well, I’ve got a little 17 month old running, and boy do I mean running, around these days.  He also is very curious when it comes to our Christmas tree.  He’s not afraid of one inch of all 8 feet of it.  I knew I’d need to come up with some alternative decor and stat!

Enter these sweet little snowflake cutouts that I remember buying when I bought said 80% off glass bulbs, but had never found a use for until this year.  I also grabbed several items from my box of goodies from the lovely people at Plaid.

To make your own, you’ll need:

red and white paint

glitter {I used red, white/iridescent, & silver}

Glossy Mod Podge

foam brush

Mod Podge Dimensional Magic

Mod Podge Dimensional Magic Silver Glitter

silver cording

bakers twine

Begin by painting each wooden cutout.  If you can’t find a wooden cutout of your desired shape, Mod Podge makes several different Podgeable Shapes, or you could even cut a shape out of sturdy cardboard.

Once the paint dries, apply a thin layer of Glossy Mod Podge to one side only of the cutout.  Generously sprinkle glitter to cover the entire shape.  Shake off the excess, and continue to Mod Podge and glitter the rest of your cutouts.

Once you’ve applied glitter to all of them, you can then go back and add a coat of Mod Podge Dimensional Magic on top of each shape.  I used the Silver Glitter Dimensional Magic on the snowflakes that I glittered silver and white and used the regular Mod Podge Dimensional Magic on the red glittered snowflakes.

Because I applied a pretty thick layer of Dimensional Magic, I let these sit out overnight.  The next day I repeated the same process of applying the Glossy Mod Podge, the glitter, and the Dimensional Magic to the other side of the cutout, since they’d be hanging on our Christmas tree and possibly visible from more than one angle.  I also let the second side dry overnight as well.

To hang them on the tree, I added some red & white bakers twine to the red snowflakes and some silver cording to the white and silver snowflakes.

These make the perfect addition to our newly kid-friendly Christmas tree this year.  I think they are gorgeous, and I’m so glad that if my little guy gets curious and decides to take one off the tree, they can’t break and cut his little hands!

{Thanksgiving Blocks Craft}

{Thanksgiving Blocks Craft}

Anyone else feeling like the time is absolutely flying by?!  I swear, before you know it, it’ll be Valentine’s Day!  In an attempt to try to s-l-o-w things down a bit, I sat down last weekend and finished up a cute Thanksgiving craft.  I’ve seen wooden blocks like this for every holiday out there, but wanted to put my own spin on it!

To make Thanksgiving Blocks, you’ll need:

3 pieces of scrap wood (all the same size-it’s up to you what size you prefer)

3 colors of acrylic paint (I went with Fall colors)

glitter in similar tones as your paint

Mod Podge

foam applicator brush

cute scrapbook sticker letters

Begin by painting each block a separate color.  I put two coats on each, but it will totally depend on the colors you choose.

Once each block has dried, apply a layer of Mod Podge, I used the Super Gloss variety, but just use whatever you have on hand!  Elmer’s school glue is great for glitter as well.  Sprinkle the glitter over the Mod Podge and let dry for at least an hour.

Once the glitter has dried, you can attach the scrapbook sticker letters on top of the glittered side of each block.  You can come up with any “Thanksgiving” related phrase or words.  I chose, “always give thanks”.  I can also switch it up when the mood strikes me to say “give thanks always”.

That’s it!  Super easy, right?!

I have the blocks set up in my kitchen next to one of my Mod Podge Dyed Mason Jars and some Fall stems, and it makes me smile every time I look at it!

#Thanksgiving scrap wood blocks make the perfect #handmade #decor for your #mantel or #tablescape this season via www.waittilyourfathergetshome.com

I want to invite you to share any Thanksgiving related projects, recipes, or ideas at my Very Thankful Party until Friday, November 23rd!  I’d love to see how you’re celebrating this year!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

I’ll be linking up at these great parties.
