Hooray for Earth Day! Celebrate Earth Day with Artterro who relaunched their line of eco-friendly art kits today! Now packaged in 100% recycled cardboard, Artterro’s art kit packaging features not only bright and colorful project ideas printed using green, soy based inks, but also a sturdy outer box that can be reused for other projects like a mailbox, birdhouse or even a special treasure box while the inner tray is perfect for reusing as a frame for finished art. Further, the bead bags used for packaging are also now biodegradable. Plus customers will find even more beautiful, completely natural materials in each kit like natural beads, felt, copper wire and even soy-based foam pad.
Here’s a peek inside Artterro’s Collage Jewelry Kit that I received featuring wooden pendants, beads and a bangle bracelet that you can embellish and decoupage with a wide variety of papers and beads included within this kit. The kit also includes cotton cord, jewelry findings for necklaces and earrings, two brushes, glaze and instructions.
For this project, Hunter, from down the street came over to lend some of her creativity. Her favorite project was the bangle bracelet.
For this project she used a brush to “paint” on Artterro’s gloss glaze onto the wooden bangle, applying decorative tissue papers onto the glaze and then painting over them.
She repeated this all the way around the wooden bangle bracelet until it was completely covered, then allowed it to dry.
She applied the same method to the pendants she turned into necklaces. She also glued bead onto some of these as well.
Here Hunter is decoupaging the beads for earrings.
