DIY Hand Painted Diyas

Hi...Today's post is about the most fun I had doing something special for this Diwali....I painted so many diyas this year that I am going to share with you today.
You must have seen some of them in my previous blogpost Diwali 2014 
I have used the following materials:
  •  Terracotta Diyas- varied sizes.
  •  Acrylic colors- Regular and Pearl finish.
  • Rhinestones- Different colors, shapes and sizes.
  • 3D Outliners/ Puffy paints.
  • Glue- Any strong glue will do.
  •  Paintbrushes.
  • Water- for cleaning the brushes.
  • Rag cloth.
I soaked the diyas in water for 15-20 mins, then rinsed them and let them dry completely....
When they were dry, I used acrylic colors in different combinations to paint them....
When the paints were completely dry, I further decorated them with 3D Outliners....
After it dried, I glued the rhinestones to the diyas...It was a backbreaking project, but the final output washed away the pain....I was very happy with the way they turned out...

Let me show you some pictures now....Here, I have used big Diyas, approximately 6 inches in diameter.....I have tried to give them an Antique look....

DIY Paisley Key holder

Hello my dear reader....welcome back!!
Today I am about to tell you about a craft that happened by chance....
I was seeing paisley prints and designs all around me this summer, and I wanted to do something with this beautiful shape.....
I've grown up wearing paisley printed clothes, making paisley rangolis and henna mehendi's and much more....but I had a block while thinking about a paisley craft....
I was going through my craft supplies, when my sons broken taekwondo board fell down...It was a square soft wood board....and then the idea struck....a key holder!!!

See what came out of my idea into reality....

Paisley Key holder
I was so excited, I forgot to take step by step photos, but I'll walk you through the process...

Materials used:

  • Soft wood board
  • Green handmade paper
  • J- hooks
  • Rhinestones
  • Golden bead string
  • 3d glitter- gold, green
  • Frame hanger hook
I covered the wooden base with green handmade paper (I love the thickness and textures of handmade papers). Then I attached the frame hanger hook behind it with a small screw.
Next, I drew a paisley on the desired place and filled it up by gluing rhinestones,  golden bead string and 3D glitter. 


When I was satisfied with the design, I let it dry completely for a few hours and the screwed in the J-hooks to hang the keys.

I found out one more use for it...a necklace holder...

Now, why don't you start making your own key holder/ necklace holder...Link back to my blog (and credit me) when you make one....and you can also post pictures of what you made, in my comment box to help me see your creations.....

Thanks for visiting and see you soon.....

Fancy Key-holder

Key-holder

Today I will show you another key holder I made recently.......
I really love making these :)
This one especially is one of my favorites.....
The design is really simple, but the final product turned out very impressive....
Pardon the image quality.....It doesn't really do justice to the real thing :(
However, let me tell you how I made this...... 
I painted a wooden block 4"x 6" in acrylic color- black.
When it dried, I made some squiggly lines for the branches with my favorite:  3D outliner- gold......
Then I made some leaf outlines with the same outliner along the branches......
I finally stuck red teardrop shaped rhinestones inside the leaf outlines......
Thus, my fancy key- holder was ready......
This was sold the very next day :))
Hope you liked it.....
You can see the other 3D key holders I made, in my previous posts, Happy Home Key Holder and Under the Sea key holder
Have Fun and Thanks for visiting :)

DIY Recycle Craft- Pen and Card Holder

Pen and Card Holder

Welcome to my latest post on Recycle Craft......
I have made a Pen and Card Holder by recycling toilet roll tube, cardboard and a scrap piece of wood......
I prepared the base by sanding the wooden piece......
Then, I glued the tube on the wooden piece using a hot gun......



I cut two cardboard semicircles and glued them on the wood as a card holder....
I also used PVA glue to  create texture on the roll and the cardboard and left it to dry.....


You can see the initial assembly in the picture below....

Recycle Craft
After everything was nice and dry, I painted the whole thing with acrylic color- black......
When the paint was dry, I used 3D outliners to create some wavy string designs and added a few diamantes for some added glitter....
I also dusted some golden powder on the whole piece to give it an antique look....
To finish the borders I used some braided golden lace.....
Finally, I gave it two coats of spray varnish for a glossy finish.....and it was ready!!
This Pen and Card Holder now sits on my hubby's desk :)

Finally, came the fun part..... assembly !!!

DIY Art on a Bottle

Old Bottle
Hello again.....
You must be wondering what this bottle is doing here, looking so sad and lonely......
I thought so too, and after giving it some thought, I decided to dress it up a little!!!
I used acrylic color as the base and covered up the whole bottle.......
Then I used a 3d outliner- gold to make small circles and the twirls.......
After it dried, I added tiny red rhinestones inside the circles........

Upcycled Bottle

And to make it a little more cute, i replaced the bottle lid with a crystal Hibiscus flower !!!



The Upcycling gave the bottle a very dainty appearance.......
Everytime I look at the bottle, it just makes me Smile :)
Hope you keep smiling too......

Art on a Bottle

Here, I have also added a small video tutorial for this project.......Have Fun :)

DIY Denim Painting

Denim Painting


Hi...Today i would like to show you the pair of jeans that i painted for my niece.....
My cute little niece is a tomboy who loves flowers, so while thinking of a gift for her, i narrowed down to painting flowers on her jeans!! :)



I grabbed my bottles of fabric colors, armed myself with brushes and got down to work......I started working freehand directly on the jeans.....The flowers bloomed first followed by the branches and then those teensy- weeny leaves........Then came out my 3d outliners......I am so in love with 3d outliners that they feature in most of my works!! The tiny blue flowers and the floral definitions were done last with the outliners....
The whole piece turned out cuter than i expected.....and the best part of it.....my niece totally adored it!!
Hope you like it too :)

Bride on a Box !!!

Bride on a Box


Hi and welcome again....
Today i would like to share with you how i made this bride on a jewellery box ....
Actually this was a wooden perfume box that i upscaled into a jewellery box and gifted it to my sister during her wedding...this was part of her "Rukhwat" or the bridal display of gifts from the mother's side....
The theme blended quite well with her wedding.....
First i sanded the box to make it smooth and then painted it all over with acrylic color- black....Then i got out my pack of air drying clay and started moulding the bride part by part over the box itself...When she was complete, i left her to dry for a day......I was too tired after all the effort, so while she rested i rested too!!
Next day, with renewed zeal i got back to work on the bride again.....I wanted the bride to look happy, so i chose all the bright acrylic colors for her clothes.....I painted her part by part and let her dry for a few hours....Then i took out my 3d outliners and gave detailing to her outfit....Finally i painted her face, hands and feet and gave facial features for that smiling bridal face.....This coy and dressed up bride sure made my sis smile!!!
Last but not the least i put a satin lining inside the box to make soft interiors....After all the box was meant to store jewelry!!

DIY 3D Symbolic Saraswati

3D Saraswati


3D Saraswati
Saraswati is the Indian goddess of knowledge. She is specially worshipped on the hindu festival of Dussehra...
Traditionally this picture i.e the symbolic form of Saraswati, was drawn on slate or paper and then worshipped....Thus a new picture was drawn every year....I have made the same one in a permanent form and added it to a frame....
I have made the linework with 3d glitter- gold(puffy paint ) and then added rhinestones to give it a more embellished look....The leaf at the bottom is symbolic of actual gold which i have painted in a contrasting green...........
Some final work with the border and my 3d saraswati was ready :)
Hope you liked it....you can leave a comment below to let me know you did....
Thanks for visiting....See you again soon :)

Mixed Media
Hi, today i'll show you the artwork i created for a friend, for her housewarming. 
This is mixed media on a wooden ply 6 inches by 6 inches in a wooden frame.


Deer Family
 I started by painting the wooden frame with acrylic color- black and kept it to dry.......
In the meanwhile, i sanded the base and painted it with acrylic colors- blue and black.
I made the tree with 3D outliner- gold and the leaves with rhinestones .
