Its a really simple project but it looks really nice......

I used a square glass jam jar for this pen holder......
I first painted it all black, as you can see here.....

Then I made some random Pearl white Polka dots on the bottle all over....

A nice white ribbon around the neck completed the project......

DIY Fluffy (Frosty)- The Snowman

There can't be winter decoration without our beloved Frosty the Snowman....Right???
Here's my version of him.....
I made this "Fluffy" Frosty with my son for his school project......
Snowman
We made this one out of Shaving cream and Elmer's Glue (Fevicol can do too)......
Saw it initially at Kraftykid .....
I made mine a little differently.....
I chose a Blue construction paper as a base.....
Then I pasted a white Snowman paper outline on the blue paper to make it easy 
for my son.....
Then we just used a candy stick to spread the shaving cream and Elmer's glue 
mixture on the white cutout till we covered it completely.....
We also spread some mixture along the bottom of the paper.....
When the mixture was still wet, we inserted the hat and a nose made out 
of construction paper........
We also made a smile from peppercorns....... :)
We added some shiny buttons on the front and a patterned paper scarf........
We also added googly eyes....my son's favorite!!!
The picture of the wet snowman looked like this.....it looks really uneven....
when you are making this, remember to add the scarf in reverse, as we will bend it forward to make the scarf.....

As it dried, we were able to see a smooth form to the structure.....
When it dried completely (overnight drying required), we glued the scarf 
together.....I cut a little fringe at the edge of the scarf......
Finally, my son drew some snowflakes and white dots on the blue paper 
to show snowfall........
We loved the overall effect of our "Fluffy"- The Snowman........
My son was so proud to take this to school........
His joy made me so happy :D

DIY Quick Rock Paperweight

Hi....
How often are you frazzled by the papers flying all over from your desk...right?
I am one of them.....My kid gets all these flyers from school which pile up on the table....
They kept getting knocked, and were falling all over the place.....That is when I felt the urgent need for a paperweight.....Thus, my Quick Rock Paperweight was born ;)
What best to hold down papers than a fairly good sized rock???
Ya, right!! ....So, I took a medium sized rock from my storage and painted it white.....
I was pondering over what design to paint when I saw one of my son's tattoos lying around....I liked this butterfly instantly :) 
When the color on the rock was dry, I applied the tattoo to the rock and left it to dry for a couple of minutes....
When it dried it looked like this:

Finally, I gave it a coat of sealer to lock in the tattoo....
It looks cool on my desk now....I love this project of mine...
Though it was instant, it turned out to be a beauty.....
I sometimes, also use it as a part of table decor..

I hope you liked it.....

Halloween Decoration

Hi....
More in the spirit of Halloween, I will tell you what else I made.....
The picture below is a huge spiderweb I painted on my glass door.....
I made a white web and then drew some black spiders all over the web.....
It covers almost half of my door....

Painted Spiderweb

What is Halloween without some spooky ghosts???
So I painted them too on the lower half of my door....

Painted Ghosts

Then I added to the decor with a window decal of a skull and hands....
I also placed a scarecrow and a skull outside the door...
Finally, I draped the stair railings with some spiderweb.....
This is how my finished Halloween Decor looks.....

Halloween Decoration

My son just loved it.....
If you like it too, do comment to let me know.....
Happy Halloween!!!

Tote Painting

Tote Painting
Hi.....
This is a tote hand-painted by me, for a custom order by a client......
She wanted me to paint a specific design that she downloaded from the internet
 and I did paint that, but with a lot of tweaking to get the desired result......
I don't like copying anyone's design, and unless I do something with my own unique
touch, it doesn't make me happy.....
Anyway, I used a white polypropylene tote as the base and painted it with Fabric color- Black......
You must have seen my earlier post on " One- Stroke Painting on Totes".....
You can see it here
There, I had used a different painting technique and lots of colors......
Here, it was just free-hand......
The black and white contrast looks awesome on the bag......
My client was so delighted with the final outcome......
And that... made me happy too :))
Hope you liked it!!!!
