Ring in the new year with decorated glasses

Use card stock to cut out eye glasses into the shape of the year. Then, apply glitter and sparkles using the glue of your choice. The year glasses are made of card stock and are approximately 1” tall. They are made with an adhesive backing. The eye glasses are made of a clear plastic.

I personally get a lot of compliments on these glasses. I have had so many people ask me if I can make them for them. I have never had a problem with them. I have also had people ask me if they can have a picture of me wearing them.

You can also use the cardstock to make a custom year-themed necklace, watch, or other jewelry.

Celebrate Saint Patrick's day with homemade clovers

Throwing a Saint Patrick's day party? Create huge four leaf clovers using construction paper and green paint. You'll need a green paint brush, two green paint sticks, a green paint roller, and a green paint roller roll.

The roll is the most important part of the project. It's the part that you'll need to use on the paper.

Step 1: Gather all your materials.

Step 2: Cut the paper into four equal pieces and roll them on the roller.

Step 3: Use the roller to create a leafy effect.

Step 4: Add a few leaves to the top.

The result will look absolutely stunning.

And that's it! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and found it helpful. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me on social media.

Create traces of the Easter Bunny

I have a friend who has a little girl and she loves to go to the park for Easter. She loves to find Easter Bunny footprints in the grass. She has been doing this for a few years now. She is so excited about it that she will take a picture of the footprints and post it on her Facebook page.

The girl is the inspiration for this idea. If you have small children, they will also love this next suggestion.

They are probably very excited for the Easter Bunny to visit. Leave traces of the bunny for them to discover around the house. For example, half-eaten carrots and imprints in the carpet.

If your children are very young, you can also put a picture of the bunny on a piece of paper and write the name of your child on it. This will make it easier for them to find the bunny.

Fourth of July with banging placemats

The 4th of July is the most important holiday in the year for the United States.

Are you getting together with friends for the 4th of July? Spruce up your dinner table with place mats designed for the occasion. You can by cheap place mats at most stores. Then, use red white and blue paint to create a fun and colorful centerpiece for your table.

Place mats are a great way to decorate and also a fun and unique addition to your table. Never underestimate the power of place mats.

If paint isn't enough for you, also consider glitter. Glitter is a wonderful way to add a fun and colorful touch to your table. You can glue the glitter using a glue stick or just use a paint brush.

Labor day fun in the sun with a decorative umbrella

Labor day usually marks the end of summer, but it's often still hot and sunny. Allow your guests to escape from the sun under a large umbrella. You can use acrylic paint to paint flowers on the umbrella.

For a more rustic look, you can use a cotton ball, a piece of string or a piece of string to wrap around the umbrella.

If you want to make the umbrella look like a flower, you can use a clear plastic bag to fill it with a small amount of floral petals.

The possibilities are endless when you're looking for a beautiful and rustic way to light up your backyard. You can use a variety of different materials, including: paint, flowers, and twigs.

Be a turkey on Thanksgiving with turkey lawn ornaments

This project will get a ton of comments from your Thanksgiving guests. Buy pink flamingo lawn ornaments, but transform them into turkeys using paint and waterproof felt. You'll get lots of compliments.

At the same time, I'm not sure if it's a good idea to put the turkeys on the lawn, but you can do it anyway. This is a great project for a first-time woodworker or for a beginner.

Turkeys are festive and fun and they're a great way to make a statement. And it's fun to see them all come together in a big, beautiful display.

I do think it's interesting that you're using a turquoise or a pink flamingo for the turkeys. I know that they're not the most common colors, but I think they would be a good choice for your Thanksgiving turkey.

Make it snow inside at Christmas

You can create a winter wonderland effect inside with white foamMake it snow inside at Christmas

You can create a winter wonderland effect inside with white foam. Foam is a great way to make your room look and feel more festive. It's also a great way to add a little decorative touch to your room.

You can spread it out using a broom stick.

Be careful to make sure pets do not eat it. It will ruin their teeth.If you have kids, you can make a snowman out of a foam block. This is a fun way to get the kids to play indoors. Dry ice can also create a cool fog effect.

I only use this technique on Christmas eve. It is a lot of work, but it is a great way to make your room look and feel more festive.

I usually use a white foam. The foam will be a bit more frosty than the grey foam I see other people use. It looks great with a white bedspread. I also use a white foam for a Christmas tree..

Other holidays

You can also decorate with crafts on other holidays. Some of the least popular holidays are :

  • Martin Luther King Day
  • Columbus Day
  • Memorial Day

When brainstorming ideas, remember that all holidays are special to some people. Don't be afraid to pretend to be a different person on the holiday you're celebrating. Remember that art is a creative expression and should be celebrated in a way that is unique to you.
