If you remember, last summer I had the opportunity to work with Elmer's and host a Kid's Craft Camp party. They provided all the supplies and the kids provided the creativity.
Cut to a few weeks ago.
I was contacted again and presented with a challenge.
The goal was to create something for the home or holidays.
Elmer's sent these supplies
(foam board, paint pens, exacto knife and glue sticks)
plus a $25 Visa gift card to get some extras.
My first thought was the black foam board looks like a chalkboard.
The lizard loves yellow. I used the all purpose glue stick to add a few pieces of cardstock (from my stash) to a piece of the board.
Super simple, super cute 'chalkboard' door sign.
I also wanted to make something a little shiny :)
I picked up some metallic paint (~$4)
I had a stash of clothespins - one of my fave things in the world!
I used the exacto to cut a circle from the foam board.
I added the clothespins.
I was going for a starburst-y look.
I'm happy with how these projects turned out.
And the only extra that I bought was the Krylon metallic spray paint.
My next idea is to create sconces with the remaining foam board.
I'll be sure to share them when I finish.
