Elmer's Look for Less challenge (and giveaway)

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
DSCN6048
(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.
DSCN6032
and spray painted the entire thing

And ended up with this...
DSCN6043
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.

In the meantime, Elmer's has generously given me 2 'look for less' kits to giveaway away!

I would use the foamboard to make a mobile by cutting out a circle base and several butterflies, using the paint markers to decorate the butterflies, and some string (on-hand) to hang them from the base (which might get covered with on-hand scrapbook paper). I'd also use the paint pens to update a few old t-shirts in my wardrobe.

I would use this kit to make something for my toddler to play with. He is getting stir crazy with it being so cold outside so this would be a perfect way to help him out with that!

This is the perfect combination of materials to do all sorts of projects with my 4 yr. old son. We can do boarders for his bulletin board.

I would love to win this. We would use the paint pens to decorate letters that spell the boys names to hang in their rooms. We would also use them to decorate clay Christmas ornaments or any type of clay designs.
