hello and welcome, with this blog i will be showing different crafting projects, how to's and sometimes reviewing different poducts. hope you will enjoy and be able to learn alittle too. you will have to forgive my pictures, for the time being they will be just be a tad bit crappy. once i start to get followers i might even have a give away now and again. i most warn you ahead of time, they will be mostly things i have made. well to get started, this being october 1, lets start off with a halloween project. 99% of this project is all from dollar tree yeah!
the dollar tree is selling these as "ice trays", ha, what little do they know. they can be used for salt dough forms, bath salt forms, whatever your little heart desires. and the best part is THERE ONLY ONE DOLLAR!!!!! then i found a bag of moss for a dollar, then round foamy things 2 for a dollar. the tombstone and pumkins are made from salt dough, which is super easy to make: 1 cup salt, 1 cup flour and 1/2 cup water and mix. after you have made whatever, then you need to put it in the microwave for about 30 seconds at a time, until hard, and watch out it will be hot. to give the tombstone a weathered look i watered down black paint and rubbed it all over. i hot glued everthing to the foamy thing and there you have a cute halloween center piece. oh yeah, i forgot, the birds are made from polymer clay. well let me know what you think of my first post, have a great day. lisa, by the way this is available in my etsy shop, if you don't feel like making it.
