I want to bring more DIY and creative blogs to Passion Locked. I mean arts and crafts are truly a passion of mine. So today I will be showing you how to make these cute little candy jars from clay pots and fish bowls.

This is a great DIY projects for your home, office, and gifts. Valentine’s Day is around the corner and I think this candy jar will be great to decorate your home or office with, or give as a gift. I will be making three of these Candy Jars, all different colors.

Here’s what I am using:

  • 4.25 in Clay Pot and Saucer from Home Depot (0.78 each, pot and saucer sold separately)
  • Mini Fish Bowl from The Dollar Tree
  • Wooden Ball from Hobby Lobby ($2.99/ 4pk)
  • Acrylic Paint and Sponge brushes, for this project I am using 3 colors: CraftSmart Red, Anita’s Royal Fuchsia, and Folk Art 676E Inca Gold
  • For decorative supplies I am using Gold Adhesive Diamond Wrap and Red Diamond Wrap from The Dollar Tree
  • Loctite Super Glue
  • Parchment Paper

To start, paint the clay pot and saucer and wooden ball. I painted one coat, let it dry then painted a second coat.

Side Note: I used the parchment Paper to protect my table top from the paint.

Then, using Loctite super glue- glue the wooden ball to the top (center) of the saucer. As well as gluing the fish bowl to the (bottom) clay pot.

Now, it’s time to decorate. I am using the adhesive diamond wrap around the bottom of the gold candy jar and the red diamond wrap around the bottom of the red candy jar. You can personalize the candy jar with other decorative stickers or letters. I plan on actually personalizing these candy jars for special people- so I’m not going to post the finished product in this blog. But closer to Valentine’s Day I will post the finished look on my IG (@passionlocked) account.

Things Millenials Do: Sip N’ Paint

Hi Passionista-

I absolutely love Sip N’ Paint. I think the entire concept is soooooo relaxing.

I have been like 3 times and I wish I could go even more. I went the first time for my 24th birthday with some friends.


I went again with some members from my alumni group.


And the last time I went was when a few of my cousins came to visit.

Y’all know I am a creative soul and I appreciate all forms of art. So being able to create my own art that I can display in my home is so kool to me. Honestly my goal is to go enough times to make a collage of my paints in my home (whenever I decide to buy one).

I’m actually planning a mommy daughter night for me and my friends with our moms soon- this could be another time I get to go…

If you are in the atlanta area, check out Creavtive Connections in North Dekalb Mall. you can purchase a $16 groupon for a 2- hour class. The instruction is very talented and the class is always a joy.

 

A PassionLocked DIY !!!!

Hello Passionista!

I thought I would start your week off with a little DIY special. I do a lot of DIY projects but I never really blog them. So I am trying to get better with blogging my DIY projects.

c If you remember my Goodwill Haul, I showed y’all some clear glass jars and candle stick holders I purchased. I used those in this DIY project. I didn’t make them for any specific, I was honestly just waiting some time. With a few holidays coming up in the next couple of months, I know I will be decorating for our family events. I can use them as centerpieces or candy jars on the deserts table. Anything really !

img_6468I only used metallic spray paint and super glue gel to make these beauties. To start, I used baby wipes to clean the jar and candle holders. If you have ever bought anything from Goodwill, you know they write the prices is some special chalk marker or something. I find it easy to wipe it away with a baby wipe.

For the jar lids I used  metallic spray paint to paint them this golden-bronze look. The super glue gel is this best glue to use for projects like this. With the jars placed up side down on a flat service, I used the gel glue on the rim of the candle holder. Next, I placed the candle holder in its place and letting it dry for 2 to 3 days.

img_6650Finally you have a finished products.

These glam holders can be used in so many places around the house:

  • In the Kitchen for you flour, sugar and other condiments
  • On the Kitchen island as jar/ treat jars
  • In the Bedroom, as decor for the dresser or night stand
  • In the Bathroom for q-tips, cotton ball and make-up blenders
  • For make-up brush holders
