How to make Christmas Themed Resin Planner Clips

I love to make little embellishments, and resin and planner clips just seem like a match made in heaven!!  So I pulled out some fun little molds that would work for a holiday theme, plus I made a few of my own molds in the shape of a snowflake!!



Here is a video on how to make your own molds plus also create your own custom resin pieces with dyes and powders.



I first start with making my own mold for snowflakes.  I pushed a metal charm into the Amazing Casting Products Mold Putty and made a few of these.



I then started to pour various pours of Amazing Clear Cast Resin dyed with the liquid dye in Blue and Powder in Pewter and Gold to make some fun shapes.   I also used a clay mold to get a few other shapes.


This skate is one of my favorites as it had the gold at the bottom, but then I changed to colors of the resin with the dye to get the blue on top.  So fun!!



I also love this effect, I dusted the mold with the Gold powder and then poured the blue dyed resin into the mold and mixed it up with the stir stick.  It looks amazing from front where the gold dust was placed.



Now look at the back,  love this side even better!!  Not sure what I am going to do with this gem, but I am saving it for something!!



For most of the resin pieces I turned them into planner clips by gluing them to paperclips.  Look how fun they all are!


The rest of the clips I made are showed in the video, I made over 15!!



Amazing Casting Products is having an amazing sale, head on over now to get your mold and resins, they are so easy to use!!

How to Make a Skeleton Knight Costume Sword & Shield

My kids have figured out that if they need something for a costume, a project needing done, they know who had the supplies....me.  So when my son wanted to be a knight, but not just a knight a skeleton knight, we needed to make a sword and shield.  I can do that!



First was the sword, I used cardboard as the base to put the whole thing together.



Here is a video on how I made the sword.



I love how the bling works on the hilt, really make the whole thing pop!



Next came the shield, still using cardboard as a base.




Here is a video on how I made the shield.



I used a star in the middle to be the focal point for the shield and kept all the colors consistent.



Now here is my son being goofy and having fun during the photo shoot.

Witches Brew Potion Bottle - Stencil Etched Halloween Decor

I love to save my bottles for fun little decor items, and this time it is some fun potion bottles for Halloween.  I love the idea of being able to transform something simple into something amazing, like a barbecue bottle into a magical witches potion bottle.



Here is a video on how I created the bottle.



I used a spiderweb stencil and the NEW spray adhesive from Etchall with the etching creme to create the spiderweb look on the bottle.  With the grey color inside the bottle the etching looks amazing!!



I loved adding on all the little gems and metals pieces to bring the look together, like a potion bottle that is ready to be sent into a witches brew cupboard.  Almost like it should be a bottle in a potions class in Hogwarts!
