CRAYON CANDLE DIY

Materials:

– Dixie Cups

– wax (available on Amazon)

– crayons

– wicks (available on Amazon)

– votives

– popsicle sticks (for stirring)

Tools:

– microwave

– a plate stand for propping up (available on Amazon)

Pour a small amount of wax into a dixie cup. Microwave for one minute. Stir and pour a thin layer into the bottom of a votive and place the candle wick in the center. Let harden.

Now it’s time to prep those crayons. You can use an Xacto knife to peel off the paper.

Use one crayon per color. Fill the Dixie cups with wax and then top with a broken up crayon. Microwave for two minutes. Stir. Then microwave for another two minutes.

Prop your votives (with wicks) on your plate stand and pour in the colored wax. The goal is to create angled layers of color. Let the first layer dry for 20-30 minutes.

Turn the votives around, and pour the second layer so you get another angle. Let dry for 20-30 minutes. Place the votive flat on your workspace to pour in the third layer.

I love the bright pink of this third layer! Let the third layer dry for an hour before lighting up.

And you’re done! There are so many possibilities for color combos – it’s hard to choose just one. Place them on your dresser, nightstand, or on your desk. These would also make really fun favors at a colorful wedding.

SUPER EASY DIY ON GLITTER VASE

If you’re looking for a fun DIY that makes your space instantly sparkle, these shot-glass vases are a real stunner. For about a dollar apiece, you can turn a few ordinary shot glasses into cute vases. Group a few together on a table or line them up in a row for a fun and pretty way to display flowers. These sparkling shot-glass vases would make beautiful wedding decor or favors.

What You’ll Need:

  • Tall shot glasses
  • Painter’s tape
  • Mod Podge
  • Paintbrush
  • Glitter
  • Sheet of scrap paper
  • Clear glaze spray paint

Directions:

  1. Using painter’s tape, cover the parts of the shot glass that you want to remain clear and unglittered. Try mixing it up on each glass: you could cover half the glass, a third of the way from the bottom, or almost to the top of the shot glass. In addition, tape over the top of the shot glass, which keeps it protected later.

  1. Place a sheet of scrap paper over your work area, and sprinkle it with glitter. Now coat the uncovered part of a shot glass, except for the bottom, with Mod Podge. Roll it in the glitter, and then place it to the side while working on the other shot glasses.

  1. After 20 minutes, touch up the glittered shot glasses as needed, and let them dry for an additional 20 minutes. Take them outdoors or to a well-ventilated area, and cover your work surface with scrap paper. Use the clear glaze spray paint to coat the glitter in a protective coating. Let dry.

  1. Remove the tape from the shot glasses, and enjoy the sparkle!

DIY ON MASON JAR SNOW BALL

What you’ll need:
A jar that seals
Distilled Water
Liquid Glycerine
Glitter
Figurines
Epoxy/Crazy Glue
Clear Gloss Mod Podge Sealer
Coat your figurines in the Mod Podge Sealer and let dry. This should help your figurines keep their coloring. Once the figurings are dry, use the Crazy Glue to attach them to the lid of the mason jar. Let them dry completely. (I waited 24 hours to be sure.)
Next, fill your jar almost to the top with distilled water. Add a dash of liquid glycerin (this is used to make the glitter fall more slowly). The amount is glitter you add is sort of at your own discretion. I ended up experimenting and some of mine have a lot of glitter and some don’t.  😉 Screw the cap on tightly and shake your jar to get the glitter moving.
And you’re done! Give your Christmas decorations a pretty handmade touch this year using this easy tutorial!

DIY ON DIFFERENT KINDS OF DOUGH

Please read the post to see the exact way to make the dough so they work for you rather than just the ingredients on the picture. 

Another ingredient that isn’t needed one but makes the play dough texture better is cream of tar tar. It could be bought in the baking aisle of most shops and it comes in little sachets. You either need half a sachet per dough or 2 tablespoons per dough mix.

A few things to note:

~ Use cream of tartar if you have it         

~ Work in more flour if the dough is very sticky         

~The more you work the dough the firmer it will be                       

~ To make it easier to color you can mix the food coloring into the water before adding that to the dry ingredients 

~ Store in an airtight container
