On the way to the farmers market last week, I noticed new art covering a utility box. I stopped and took a picture of each side and looked up the website Capitol Box Art. Check out the map for more art and locations to visit.
I got tiered of using plastic cups from restaurants for the kids toothbrush holders ("classy" I know!). I found these plain white holders at the Dollar Store. Using my Cricut and some red vinyl - wallah! Personalized toothbrush holders!!
I liked them with just the monogram on there but I thought in this case it would look more kid like with extra stuff :)
Supplies: jars, vinyl, etching cream (available at most craft stores)
I picked up four jars for only $.49 each at Goodwill.
I cut the letters from a piece of vinyl using my Cricut (Plantin SchoolBook font). Make sure you leave space in between each letter so you have room to cut it out (I'm showing my "what not to do" example laying on the table :). I also found it helping to increase the blade pressure on the Cricut to make sure it cuts all the way through. Peel backing and lay it on each jar, making sure the edges are pushed down.
Apply etching cream and leave on approx. 5 minutes. I'd smooth it out more next time :)
After 5 minutes, just rinse with water and peel the vinyl off.
I love how they turned out. Now I just need to make some iced tea!
I also did this for Father's Day using a large glass w/ a handle. I monogrammed it for my dad and wrapped it up w/ some root beer and vanilla ice cream - he loved it!
I'm sharing my craft at Skip to my Lou. They have 'Made By You Monday' - lots of fun stuff to check out!
Here's another fun Halloween craft I found at How Does She? so I decided to make my own. I found the blocks at Michael's and the rest is what I had in my stash. Hannah has been diligently turning the blocks each day!
If you decide to make one, here's what #s you need:
