It’s easy to feel overwhelmed throughout the fall and winter holiday season. On top of the pressures of work and parenting, there are holiday activities to contend with. Not to mention all those holiday family obligations that we sometimes wish we didn’t have. Like you, there are days I just need a break. For the rest of the year, I’ve promised myself I will do just that.

As I tend to isolate myself more during cold weather months, part of my plan for self care is to get out of the house and socialize more. To help me find activities I know that I’ll enjoy, I’ve been keeping a steady eye on upcoming Facebook events. For events I’m interested in, I mark as “interested” so I get a reminder via Facebook a few days before. However, for events I’m kind of crazy about, they get put on my paper wall calendar. (Yes. Yes. I have one of those.) This way my favorite events won’t slip my mind.

While my final decision for Halloween activities is still up in the air, I have committed myself to several activities for October. Events like an art exhibition opening at a local gallery, music at a local restaurant, a monthly Wine & Art Wednesday, and another monthly event pegged Rooftop Riot for my BFF’s birthday.

Of course, since my boyfriend Greg goes to most of these things with me, I’m having to schedule around football. Luckily, most live bands play at restaurants with televisions. (So he can’t cop out. Bwahahaha.) He’s been a real sport about trying new things though. It can be hard to put yourself out there if you don’t a sidekick. So he keeps me honest so I don’t bail to binge on Netflix instead.

Last month Greg tagged along for Wine & Art Wednesday. It’s run by my friend, Hillary, so it’s a great opportunity not just to see my friends, but to meet new people AND get crafty. I took along some wine from my new Winc shipment (the 2016 L’Atelier du Sud Red Blend and 2017 Finke’s Sparkling White Blend, both of which were amazing!) and we spent the evening crafting our own DIY suncatchers.

While suncatchers seem like they might be seasonally specific, I think that this craft project is great for anytime of the year. This would be a great project for winter to help you overcome seasonal depression and allow a little more light into your life. Plus it’s the perfect chance to create imaginative snowflakes or winter themed flamingos for your windows!

There are several things that I really love about this DIY suncatcher craft project. One, you repurpose old or scratched CD’s for this project, so it’s not going to cost a lot of money. Two, you don’t need to be an artist to make these suncatchers. You can easily trace your favorite designs onto the cd’s. Or, you can freehand an abstract idea. And three, this DIY suncatcher craft project is amazingly therapeutic. I’d had a terrible week leading up to making these suncatchers. However, by the time Wine & Art Wednesday was over, I was in great spirits.

Ready to give this DIY suncatcher craft project a try? Following is an easy tutorial and photos from my Wednesday night to walk you through the process!

DIY Suncatcher Craft Project Tutorial

Supplies & Materials:

Blank CDs
Tape
Scissors
Permanent Markers or Paint Pens
Suncatcher Paint
Fishing Line
Colorful Beads, optional

DIY Suncatcher Craft Project Instructions:

You’ll begin by removing the painted layer from your CD.

To do this, simply place a piece of tape over the painted side of the CD with one end hanging off the edge of the CD. Lift the edge of the tape by the outer edge of the CD slightly. Then take a pair of scissors and scratch off a small amount of the coating under the outer edge of the tape.

Press the tape back down over the scratch you made. Then pull the tape away from the outer edge of the CD. That painted layer or coating will pull right off! (I never would have believed it was THIS easy!) Repeat as needed until all of the coating has been removed and you’re left with only the clear CD plastic.

Next, use a permanent marker or paint marker to draw your design onto the CD. You can either trace a design onto the CD by placing an image or mandala pattern under the CD or you can draw your own design.

Once you’ve drawn the outline for your DIY suncatcher craft project design, you can either use suncatcher paints or permanent markers to color in the design.

Allow your suncatcher to dry completely, then tie a length of fishing line through the hole in the CD so it can be displayed.

You can also add beads to the fishing line both above and/or below the CD for an extra decorative touch. It’s that easy!

Take the time out to do something special for yourself this fall by learning a new craft. This collection of DIY craft kits for adults is just what you need to get started!

Take the time out to do something special for yourself this fall by learning a new craft. This collection of DIY craft kits for adults is just what you need to get started!

Fall is by far my favorite season. Not only do I love the crisp, cooler weather that fall brings, I’m also stoked that I can finally wear something other than shorts and a t-shirt. And while the fall temperatures justify that wonderful wardrobe flip, the cooler air is also perfect for hiking and fall festivals. I love that I can go places and do things and not end up a sweat soaked puddle on the sidewalk.

While I’m not as fond of the shorter days, they do offer the perfect opportunity to stay indoors and get my craft on. It’s also the perfect chance to get my feet wet with a new craft project outside of my area of expertise.

8 DIY Craft Kits for Adults to Try This Fall. Take the time out to do something special for yourself this fall by learning a new craft. This collection of DIY craft kits for adults is just what you need to get started!

My friend, Hillary, who is an artist, supplies ample opportunities to do just that. She recently revived her event nights, Wine & Art Wednesdays. I’ve learned needle felting as well as monoprinting in her previous classes that I attended. While my friend, Bambi, learned various encaustic painting techniques.

This fall she’ll be offering classes on Wednesday nights to learn how to paint sun catcher mandalas, craft felted pumpkins and design winter terrariums. While her expanded Saturday courses include learning how to make needle felted wall hangings and photo transfer painting. So I’m super excited to learn some new arts and crafts techniques that I may not have otherwise tried on my own.

If there’s a lack of opportunities to learn new crafts in your area, you still have options. Creativebug offers over 1,000 arts and crafts classes that you can access online from the comfort of your home.

Their online video courses make it easy to learn how to sew, paint, bake, crochet and pretty much any other craft or hobby you’re ready to tackle. With new classes introduced on a daily basis, you’ll never run out of ideas for weekend projects. And, in addition to the video tutorials from Creativebug, they also offer downloadable patterns, templates and recipes.

I’m really excited about some of the projects Creativebug offers for the upcoming holiday season. You can learn how to make Halloween crafts, discover creative ways to wrap your holiday gifts and even get started on your handmade Christmas gifts.

Another great way to learn a new skill is through an all inclusive DIY craft kit. Like Creativebug’s online classes, these DIY craft kits for adults allow you to work at your own pace when your schedule opens up some free time. So whether you’re crafting on a lunch break or crocheting at midnight, you can always sneak in some self care craftiness.

I created my DIY dachshund magnet using the same dachshund silicone mold I used to create my darling dachshund melt and pour soaps. In addition to this mold you’ll also need some polymer clay, paints, glue and magnets.

What You’ll Need:

dachshund silicone ice cube tray
white original Sculpey oven bake clay
craft paints
craft paint brushes
clear acrylic sealer
strong magnets
E6000 glue

What to Do:

Begin by kneading the polymer clay until it’s soft and pliable. Then press the clay firmly into one of the cavities of your dachshund mold.

Allow the clay in the mold to “firm” back up for about ten to fifteen minutes, then carefully remove the polymer clay from the mold cavity.

Once you’ve removed the dachshund shaped clay from the mold, use a small amount of clay to form an ear for your dachshund. To do this, first knead the clay until soft and pliable. Then create a teardrop shape with the clay.

Press the clay onto the dachshund where his ear would be and gently shape it to look like an ear. Smooth the clay out around the base of the ear so it stays attached to the body, and press your finger into the “drop” of the teardrop shaped clay to flatten out the ear.

Now place the clay dachshund on a baking sheet in a 275°F oven for 15 minutes.

Once you’ve baked the clay, remove it from the oven and allow to cool.

Use craft paints to paint your clay dachshund as desired once the clay has cooled. I used a combination of colors so my DIY dachshund magnet would look like my own dapple colored miniature dachshund.

When the paint has fully dried, spray the magnet with a clear acrylic sealer. Allow the sealer to dry.

DIY Etched Mason Jars for Creative Storage or Gifting

DIY Etched Mason Jars! These pretty DIY etched mason jars with stars are a fun and unique to give mason jar gifts. Or customize them to fit into your home decor theme to utilize them for storage and organization. #masonjars #masonjarcrafts #diy #etching #giftideas #crafts

This DIY Etched Mason Jars Craft Project is an easy way to dress up your empty mason jars as well as any  other glass jars you might have on hand. They’re perfect for storing and organizing items in your own home or you can fill them with delightful treats or handmade goodies for gifting!

Initially my handy dandy sometimes super assistant, Hunter, helped me with these using a DIY Etched Glass Champagne Flutes Kit from Darby Smart. Included in this kit were two champagne flutes plus one extra for practice, Martha Stewart Glass Etch Cream with Brush, and star stickers. We learned a few things with this kit. 1.) Practice first. 2.) Use a larger brush than what comes with the kit to get better, more even coverage. 3.) This works better, or rather is easier, with larger surfaces. 4.) Use stickers that adhere well enough that they don’t slip when brushing on the etching cream. Puffy stickers should be avoided all together as they are the worst culprit. 5.) Etching cream smells terrible. (As witnessed in this behind the scenes instagram photograph.)

The champagne flutes did not come out anywhere near what we were hoping for and we definitely would have benefited from practicing first. However, there was more than enough etching cream left to make a few mason jars so that’s what Hunter did. If you try this yourself and the first time’s a bust you can salvage your glass or jar by simply going back over the glass with more etching cream to frost the entire glass or jar.

To create your own DIY etched mason jars, start by applying your stickers to a clean glass surface. Use stars or letters or any other shape that suits your fancy.

Apply a thick coat of etching cream over entire surface you want to appear frosted. Allow to set for at least fifteen minutes or twenty for good measure.

Now rinse off the etching cream from the glass by running it under warm water. Once all of the etching cream comes off, remove the stickers and  wash the glass.

Easy DIY Terrarium Magnets for Your Fridge!

I’ve been trying a lot of new DIY projects out recently, some with success and some that were so dismal I hid them in my craft box afterwards. As it turns out many crafts actually do require some skill and/or practice to get them just right – even those of us who were fine art majors in college. I’ve always known I don’t have steady enough hands for making jewelry, but apparently metal stamping and glass etching are not my forte either. However, this adorable project for making your own DIY Terrarium Magnets is definitely one craft project that everyone can make regardless of whether you were born with a Mod Podge and glitter embellished silver spoon in your proverbial craft gene.

I purchased the DIY Terrarium Magnet Kit for this particular project from Darby Smart to avoid having to hunt down supplies from various sources. My handy dandy super awesome sometimes assistant, Hunter, then helped me pull it all together. Here’s how it’s done.

Easy DIY Terrarium Magnets

What you’ll need:

Sheet of Plastic Film
3 Open Faced Magnetic Tins (3.5″ diameter)
Stone White Gravel
E6000 Glue
Preserved Green Reindeer Moss
3 Air Plants
Sharpie Marker
Scissors

What to do:

DIY Terrarium Magnets - Step One

Begin by placing the lid of a magnetic tin on the plastic sheet. use a Sharpie marker to trace around both the inside and outside of the tin.

DIY Terrarium Magnets - Step One

Repeat this step for each terrarium magnet you want to make.

DIY Terrarium Magnets - Step Two

Using scissors cut the circle shapes out of the plastic sheet by cutting in between the two lines you drew for each circle. Cut the circles in half. Use the glue to glue the plastic inside the open faced lid for each tin and allow to dry.

DIY Terrarium Magnets - Step Three

Place the gravel, moss and an air plant into the base of the tin arranging the rocks on the bottom with the moss and air plant on top.

DIY Terrarium Magnets - Step Four

Now screw the lid of the terrarium onto the base so that the plastic half circle you glued to the inside of the lid covers the bottom half of the tin where the rocks and moss are.

Easy DIY Terrarium Magnets

And that’s it! Your project is complete. Now just stick your DIY terrarium magnets on your fridge or to any other metal surface you’d like so you can show them off. Be sure to keep your air plants “watered” by misting or immersing the air plants in water once a week.

You can currently buy this DIY Terrarium Magnets Kit from Darby Smart for just $19 with free shipping. It has everything you need to make three terrarium magnets to perk up your home or office decor.
