DIY Valentines Day Card Box

vdaybox

Valentines Day is around the corner, so why not make something for it? Today I’m doing a DIY Valentines Day card box craft. This is really cute as a decoration, for a school project, or for a card box to sit on your desk at school! All you have to do is think about what you want your box to look like, go out and find the supplies, and then put it all together!Take a look at the supplies I have in the video to get an idea of what you need to make your box.

My friend and I made two different kind of heart shaped card boxes. I made one with a chalkboard theme and she made her box with a cake theme in mind. What kind of theme do you have in mind for your card box? Let me know in the comments!

See you next week with another video,

DIY Halloween Decorations Cheap Bat Garland and Spider

halloween2

Happy Friday! Today I took a break from drawing and decided to spruce up my house with cute homemade Halloween decorations. Halloween decorations at the store can be so pricey, can’t they? That’s why I decided to make some of my very own! I made an adorable bat garland (bats hanging upside down on braided yarn) and a silly little pom pom spider with a witch’s hat. The video is short and to the point. I think the process to make these are pretty obvious and simple. If you happen to have any problems while recreating any of these projects, let me know and I’ll be happy to help. I hope this gives you some inspiration on cheap and easy Halloween decorations you can make for your room or home. Oh and, I hope you enjoyed the random cat footage ;-). If you’re a follower you should know by now I like cheesy and silly videos.

To make the bat garland you’ll need:

  1. black pom-poms
  2. 2 pipe cleaners per spider
  3. 2 googly eyes per spider
  4.  craft glue or hot glue
  5. black foam board paper

To make the spider you’ll need:

  1. any color pom-pom you want (I got orange)
  2. 4 pipe cleaners 
  3. 2 googly eyes
  4. a unique item to put on the spider (I found a mini witch hat)

Happy DIY!

Let me know what you want me to draw, paint or create next week,
~Pamela
