DIY Clay Ornaments. 6 weeks until Christmas.

DIY Clay Ornaments

SIX. WEEKS. I’m not a Christmas frenzy-type person, but I do love an excuse to deck the halls and be extra thoughtful about the people I love. While potty-training (which has taken a turn for the worse, I’m afraid) and the unpredictable weather has kept us slightly more housebound, I’ve been looking for little projects Levi and I can do together and I’ve starting to seriously stock up on materials and supplies for making Christmas presents. *insert eye roll here* Ultimate Paper Mache – Learn to Sculpt, with Paper and Paste, Paper Mache Clay, Plaster Cloth and Epoxy Clay.

70+ Homemade Toys to Make for Kids

With Christmas approaching I’ve been busy, rounding up homemade gift ideas. Recently, I rounded up dozens of homemade gifts that kids can make for grown ups, and it was so popular, I thought I’d share sharing a collection of homemade gifts grown-ups can make for kids. I got a little carried away because, holy cow, there are a TON of homemade toy ideas floating around on the internet. Toys for babies, toddler toys, toys for preschool boys and girls. Toys made from old furniture or from items in your recycle bin, toys made from stuff you already have around the house, and toys made from inexpensive thrift shop finds.

The Guggenheim Puts Online 1600 Great Works of Modern Art from 575 Artists. If you were to ask me in my callow years as a young art student to name my favorite painter, I would have answered without a moment’s hesitation: Wassily Kandinsky.

His theoretical bent, his mysticism, his seemingly near total creative independence…. There were times when Kandinsky the thinker, writer, and teacher appealed to me even more than Kandinsky the painter. This may go a ways toward explaining why I left art school after my first year to pursue writing and teaching. But nowadays, having seen a tiny bit more of the world and its bountiful artistic treasures, I might pause for just a moment if asked about my favorite painter… then I’d answer: Wassily Kandinsky. But if you can’t make it to New York, then just head on over to the Guggenheim’s online collection, where the museum has digitized “nearly 1600 artworks by more than 575 artists.” Speaking of Klee, another of my favorites, you’ll also find the sketch above, from 1895, before he began his formal training in Munich.

Halloween Crafts: Glow in the Dark Terror-arium

And I get it. Halloween is definitely my favorite holiday. I love the smell of toasted pumpkins and the chilly night air with a blustery wind. Throw on a good classic horror film like Bela Lugosi in Dracula and we are all set for the night! But I digress….clearly I love a good Halloween craft that stirs the imagination, so what better way to celebrate than by making a Halloween themed terrarium AKA Terror-riaum? This post contains affiliate links to products I love and recommend to my readers, plus it keeps this little blog o’mine afloat!

Step 3: Lay the card that has the outline of the tree on a flat surface. Take a ruler and line the edge of it up against the center fold line of the card. Step 4: Use the rounded end of a paper clip (or a ball point pen that has run out of ink) and press it along the dotted line carefully scoring the card all the way from top to bottom. Step 5: Cut the card out carefully following the solid, black lines around the edges. Step 6: Begin to fold the card in half, keeping the outline of the tree on the OUTSIDE so you can always see it.

Step 7: Fold the card completely in half with the outline of the tree still visible. Step 8: Carefully cut along the SOLID black line of the first segment at the top of the tree. Step 10: Put the first segment back in its original position. Easy Art Projects for Kids: Watercolors & Oil. Les projets / Projekty.
