I can’t believe is Christmas Day. It feels so good to see another Christmas, celebrate Jesus birthday and being around the people I love the most. All month I have been taking orders and helping others prepare that special gift for their loved ones or making decor to bring holiday cheer. It makes me feel good to see a smile on other peoples faces.
Just wanted to share more of my creatives from this month. For more pictures be sure to follow me on Instagram, Twitter and my Facebook Like Page.
My crafty sassy behind has been busy this month. December is always a busy month for me and like always I am Not prepared. One year, December is not going to roll up on me when I’m unprepared. December 2019 I will be prepared with more gifts sets and personalized packages. But even tho I’m not prepared the way I want to be this year, I have been managing all of my orders and getting Blogmas posted once a day. I am a one women show and I pat myself on the back for making it to day 18 on task.
For those of you who don’t know, I am not just a blogger. I am also an Event Planner and creative innovator. I make personalized gifts and decor. As you can imagine around this time of year people are hitting me up for all types of stuff…. designed wine glasses, coffee mugs and Tumblrs, T-shirts, gift baskets and more.
I wanted to share my work with you.
If you wish to place an order, you can DM on instagram or email firstname.lastname@example.org. One day I’m going to have a store and a creative studio.
Y’all already know, I am the DIY Queen when it comes to gifts and decor. I came across the idea (on Pinterest) for holiday wine bags. I found these to be super easy to make and cute to give away as gifts. There are also cheap enough to make a resale profit.
These wine bags can be used for all occasions like birthdays gifts, wedding gifts, party favors, house warming, etc. I think else are my new favorite DIY gift item to make.
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
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.
Lastly, Fill the candy jar with you favorite sweet treats.
