Glitter And Gold Christmas DIY

posted by My Saskatoon    |   December 10, 2015 14:25
 Here are a few of our favourite Christmas DIY ideas! We are loving the glitter and gold this year and these easy and affordable crafts can make great gifts for the season.

 

Spray Paint a white coffee mug or wine glass with gold paint. A simple but thoughtful gift for your friend or sister! Add some of her favourite coffee beans in the cup for that extra touch.

Not only will this DIY craft keep your little ones busy, it will also be great oversized art for your home this Christmas. Spray paint popsicle sticks gold and hot glue them together in shapes of snowflakes.

Your friends and family will appreciate this extra touch in your gift-giving this year when you make your own tags! The supplies include mod podge, a foam brush, glitter, twine, ink pads and alphabet stamps. You can use any type of material for the cards, although cork material could be very nice and durable!

A perfect gift exchange idea! All you need is a clear bulb and letter stickers in any font you like. Fill the bulb with colourful glitter and tie a pretty bow on top. This DIY is easy and affordable and obviously very personal.

Halloween DIY Costumes

posted by My Saskatoon    |   October 20, 2015 10:24

Wondering what to dress up as this Halloween? Here are some easy DIY costume ideas that you could wear at any party!

 

Ice Cream Cone

Grab your favorite pencil skirt and hot glue giant DIY sprinkles on a white tee.  You can use coloured paper, crayons without the wrapper or even Mike 'n' Ikes candy to make it more realistic. Just try not to eat them as the night goes on!  The cherry on top is just a red balloon so head to your local party place for a helium filled balloon.

Pinapple

All you need is a over-sized yellow shirt or dress and green cut outs. Use a toilet paper roll as the base for the cut outs and paint it green. Then take a head band and place it on your head so that it is stabilized.

You can find the instructions to make this costume here.
