Fornite Pegboard POP Head Display

Hello friends, today I’m sharing a new Pegboard craft, BUT with a fun theme…  FORTNITE!!  My boys are seriously obsessed with Fornite. So creating a Fornite themed pegboard for them to display their POP figures on really scores me some major mom points.

As you all know I’m apart of the core blogger team for DecoArt.  Every month we have a fun challenge to create a project using a DecoArt product.  This month our challenge was using any of the Americana Premium Acrylics for a wall art project.

I love this paint and have used it for several projects already, like this Flamingo wall art I did for Valentines last year.

So let’s get started!

Fornite Pegboard Supplies:

  • Americana Premium Acrylics – Carbon Black
  • Americana Premium Acrylics – Quinacridone Red
  • Americana Premium Acrylics – Titanium White
  • Americana Premium Acrylics – Primary Yellow
  • Pegboard
  • Washi Tape
  • Paint Brush

Fornite Pegboard POP Head Display

Step 1 – Create Your Design

Since I really wanted to create a Fornite look with this Pegboard, I did some research on their color schemes.  They use a lot of bright colors like Pinks, Purples, and blues.  I told my hubby my idea and he immediately loved it and came up with an idea in Photoshop similar to a graphic we saw on the Fornite’s Instagram page.

Step 2 – Draw Out your Design

For this step I used a ruler to make my lines, then went over with some “handy dandy” washi tape to keep my lines crisp.

Step 3 – Add your Paint

Next, I wanted the perfect color pink that matches the Fornite color scheme.  I mixed the Quinacridone Red and Titanium White to create a bright pink shade I needed!

I did a total of two coats, letting each coat dry 10 minutes.

Once the paint dried, I pulled the washi tape up to reveal my crisp lines!

Step 4 – Add Second Coat of Paint

Now it’s time to paint the second half of our Pegboard white.  Don’t forget to tape the second half off as well.

Step 5 – Paint the Shelves

Finally we need to paint our shelves.  What I love about this paint it goes on so smooth and dries fast.

Galaxy Glitter Mermaid Craft - Mermaid Inspired Wreath

Today I’m sharing a new post I made over at the DecoArt blog, a Mermaid craft!  I’ve never done a mermaid craft before so I was really excited to make a Mermaid Inspired Wreath.

I’m at it again with another fun project using the Galaxy Glitter! I’ve created a couple of projects using this Galaxy Glitter and I’m really liking the results with this. For today’s project, I really wanted to create a Mermaid Inspired Wreath, but I didn’t want to be so literal with the mermaid embellishments so I went with some shells and classic mermaid color scheme.

As you all know I’m apart of the core blogger team for DecoArt.  Every month we have a fun challenge to create a project using a DecoArt product.  This month our challenge was using any of the Galaxy Glitter Paints for a Summer project.

Let’s get started.

Mermaid Inspired Wreath Supplies:

  • Galaxy Glitter 2 oz – Aqua Meteor
  • Galaxy Glitter 2 oz – Ultraviolet
  • Americana Acrylics 2oz – Green Lagoon
  • Americana Acrylics 2oz – Wild Orchid
  • Americana Acrylics 2oz – Peacock Teal
  • Americana Acrylics 2oz – Magenta
  • Americana Acrylics 2oz – Bright Salmon
  • Wooden twig wreath

  • Hot glue

Space Theme VBS Robot Craft https://www.craftsbycourtney.com/how-to-crafts/space-theme-vbs-robot-craft/ Tue, 21 May 2019 03:09:16 +0000 https://www.craftsbycourtney.com/?post_type=craft&p=11290 Space Theme VBS Robot Craft
Space Theme VBS is probably one of the most popular themes, today I'm sharing an easy DIY Robot craft you can make for any Space theme VBS or Summer Camp theme.
]]>
Space Theme VBS Robot Craft

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing a Space Theme VBS Robot Craft I made over at the Darice site last month. I have been doing a series of VBS and Summer Camp this themed crafts so make sure to stop by and check them all out!

Summer is right around the corner, and nothing get’s me as excited as getting ready for our churches VBS every year (we have already started planning).  We have done several themes over the years, but I think this year we plan on doing a Space theme!  I like to get started early with my ideas and test them out.  One of the ideas I decided on were these wooden robots, after I saw them on the Darice site. This is a great/easy project for kids of all ages to do.

Plus you only need a couple supplies, which is great for a VBS craft.  We usually get about 150 kids, so to be able to check an easy craft (yet cool) project off the list is always a great idea to me!

Let’s get started!

Robot Craft Supplies Needed:

  • Wooden Robots
  • Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Glue
  • Goggly Eyes
  • Robot Stickers
  • Paint Trays

Easy DIY Space Theme VBS Robot Craft

Quick Tip:  Have the kids or helpers write the child’s name on the back of their robots.  This will make it easier to identify which robot belongs to who.

Easy DIY Space Theme VBS Robot Craft

Step 1 – Select Your Paint

Start off by selecting a TON of paint options for the kids.  I always just use a basic acrylic paint for any of my VBS projects.  Remember a little paint goes a long way with a project like this.

Easy DIY Space Theme VBS Robot Craft - supplies

Step 2 – Select Your Brushes

Make sure to have several different size brushes for the kids to use.  If you invest in good brushes they will last many years, if you make sure to clean them right away.  I keep a cup of water on the table for the kids to add their brushes to once they’re done so the paint does not dry on them.

If you have helpers, then they can walk around and clean the brushes after each group leaves.

Step 3 – Time to Paint

The fun part, letting the kids start painting!  With this craft, I would have the kids paint the body first, then start painting in the details.  Tell them to get as creative as they want with their robots!

Easy DIY Space Theme VBS Robot Craft

Step 4 – Goggly Eyes

As you can see I was planning on just painting in the eyes, I was not a fan of that look.  So I grabbed some goggly eyes and some glue and added them on.  A way better look, and really finishes the project off nicely.

Finishing Touches

I love adding all the different colors to these robots! I also found these great Space Stickers you can use with this craft.

DIY Summer Camp Tote Bag

Summer Camp season is right around the corner, so I wanted to get started early sharing some fun ideas you can do with your campers.  I made this DIY Summer Tote Bag over at the Darice Blog last month. I have been sharing several Summer Camp projects over there, so make sure to check them all out.

I think having the kids create their own tote bag the very first day of camp is a great idea.  They can bring it everyday and be able to take home any projects they make at camp easily or carry around their water bottles or any personal items!

This is a great way to personalize the bags towards your camp theme, like space camp, use space stickers, sports camp use sports sticker, etc. To create that extra touch you can use some of the felt stickers to add the kids names as well!

Let’s get started.

DIY Summer Camp Tote Bag Supplies:

  • Cotton Tote
  • Felt Stickers
  • Felt Alphabet Letter Stickers

Easy DIY Summer Camp Tote Bag

Step 1-Pick Out Your Tote Bags

There are a couple options but I went with the classic white, anything you put on them it will POP!

Easy DIY Summer Camp Tote Bag

Step 2 Pick Out Your Stickers

Like I said, you can go with the theme of your Summer Camp or just pick a ton of different styles and let the kids make whatever kind of tote design they want!

Easy DIY Summer Camp Tote Bag

Lay out all your supplies on a table and let’s the kids start crafting! Since the kids are using felt stickers, this is a perfect craft for any age.

Create an Easy DIY Summer Camp Tote Bag

Quick Tip:  Tell the kids to lay out their design/patten before actually adding the felt stickers to the bags.

Create an Easy DIY Summer Camp Tote Bag

The fun part! Once they have their design down, then they can start adding their stickers! YAY!

Step 3 – Add Name

Adding their name to the bag is a great way to help the kids keep track of their own bags.

See how perfect that is, you can also order smaller alphabet stickers as well for longer names (like Courtney)!

Painted Stepping Stone for your Garden https://www.craftsbycourtney.com/how-to-crafts/painted-stepping-stone-for-your-garden/ Wed, 24 Apr 2019 13:00:37 +0000 http://www.craftsbycourtney.com/?post_type=craft&p=10688 Create a simple Painted Stepping Stone for your Garden
I love outdoor projects for the yard, they are so great and fun to do. This DIY Stepping Stone is a perfect project you can do on a budget for sure!

Create a simple Painted Stepping Stone for your Garden

Hello friends, I’m super excited to share a new project today! Painted Stepping Stone for your garden!

This Summer I’ve really been trying to do more projects in the yard.  Last month I made a DIY Hose Stand and I love how it turned out.  So I decided to add some more projects to the yard.   This project is perfect if you have a Silhouette or Cricut, OR if your really good at freehand.  The possibilities are endless with a project like this!

Painted Stepping Stone

While I was at Wal-Mart I came across these cool round stepping stones for $2.50.  I could not pass these cool stones up, I knew I wanted to do some with them for my flower bed. I was originally inspired by PMQ for Two tile makeover she did a couple months ago.

Let’s get started!

Painted Stepping Stone for your Garden

Step 1 – Paint Paver

First let’s start off by painting our entire paver!  I decided I wanted white for my background color so my colors would really POP.

Painted Stepping Stone for your Garden

I used the Outdoor Living paint for this step.  I only needed to add two coats for this step!!

Painted Stepping Stone for your Garden

Step 2 – Cut and add Stencil

Next it’s time to cut and add our stencil!  I found both of these designs in the Silhouette library.

Painted Stepping Stone for your Garden

I started off weeding this, but I felt it was easier to add the cut to the paver, then weed it afterwards.  It really did make it so much easier.

Painted Stepping Stone for your Garden

Step 3 – Weed Vinyl

Now it’s time to weed the entire stencil.  Like I said in step 2, it’s so much easier this way.

Painted Stepping Stone for your Garden

Step 4 – Paint Stencil

NOW THE FUN PART!!  Painting (insert happy dance emoji)!!

I decided to use the Patio Paint for this part, I have so many more color options with these paints.

Painted Stepping Stone for your Garden

After the paint has dried (which is pretty fast) it’s time to peel up the vinyl.  I made a quick time lapse video for this step on my Instagram page.  Make sure to check it out and follow me on Insta if you don’t already!

Painted Stepping Stone for your Garden

Step 5 – Fix any Problem Areas

For some reason this stepping stone had some bleeding with the paint in areas.  I think because I was making the time lapse video, I was working a little faster then I usually would have and pulled my vinyl up too fast.  But it was an easy fix, I just went over the problem areas again with the Outdoor Living paint.

Plus I feel like it gives it a cool aged look.

Painted Stepping Stone for your Garden

Finishing Touches

See how cool that is!  I have pretty stepping stone to add in my flower bed.

Dinosaur Decor Pennant Wall Art

Today I’m sharing more Dinosaur Decor that I made for my little boys room. I this project over at the Darice Blog last month and I’m finally getting around to post it on my blog.  I’ve made several fun dinosaur themed projects for my boys room over the past couple months, but this one was by far the easiest!

I found this great wooden Pennant Wall Hanging on the Darice blog and thought that would be perfect to create a new project with for the boys room.

If dinosaur theme is not your thing, then you can customize it any way you want by using any of the Darice wood shapes.

So let’s get started!

Dinosaur Decor Supplies Needed:

Dinosaur Decor Pennant Wall Art

Step 1 – Stain Pennant

I love using this Gel Stain by DecoArt, I get the stained look that I’m going for without all the mess.  Paint it on your piece, let dry 15 minutes and your all set! No staining your hands or having to wear gloves.  Perfect!

Dinosaur Decor Pennant Wall Art

I used a regular paint brush and only needed one coat of paint.

Dinosaur Decor Pennant Wall Art

Step 2 – Paint Dinosaur

Let’s paint our dinosaur piece. Since my boys have a dinosaur theme room I went with one of the main colors in the room.  Orange, but you can pick whatever you like.  Paint your dinosaur piece. One coat was all I used.

This is a perfect step to have the kids get involved if they want to help paint the dinosaur.

Step 3 – Add your Glue

Once the paint has dried add a little glue to the back and firmly place it on your pennant wall hanging.  Let dry 20 minutes, then your ready to hang on the wall!

Finishing Touches

For some extra pieces in the room, I painted some wood beads the same color scheme of the room to make a cute wood bead garland. It will make a nice accent drapping over a shelf or table lamp.

I also found this “Rawr” saying.  Add a touch of paint to personalize it to the room colors and were all set!

Now we have three great pieces to add to my boys dinosaur themed bedroom and we made them all in no time at all!

Terra Cotta Pot DIY Lighthouse Garden Project https://www.craftsbycourtney.com/how-to-crafts/terra-cotta-pot-diy-lighthouse-garden-project/ Fri, 19 Apr 2019 13:25:47 +0000 https://www.craftsbycourtney.com/?post_type=craft&p=11365 DIY-Clay-Pot-Lighthouse-15
It's never too early to start working on outdoor garden projects for your yard. I made this DIY Lighthouse with DecoArt's Outdoor Living Paints.
]]>
DIY-Clay-Pot-Lighthouse-15

Hello friends, as you all know I’m apart of the core blogger team for DecoArt.  Every month we have a fun challenge to create a project using a DecoArt product.  This month our challenge was using any of the new 2oz Americana Decor Outdoor Living Paints for an outdoor project. This outdoor paint has alway been in an 8oz jar, but they just released the new 2oz size for smaller projects.

For my challenge I decided to work on a project I’ve been wanting to do for awhile now…  A Terra Cotta Pot DIY Lighthouse!

I’ve alway thought these projects were so cute and easy to do, and guess what??  It totally was! This looks perfect sitting in my front flower bed, and it matches the Hose Stand I made last year using the Outdoor Living Paint as well.

Supplies Needed for Your DIY Lighthouse Project:

  • Clay Pots in various sizes
  • Solar Light
  • E6000 Glue
  • Paint Brush
  • Americana Decor Outdoor Living 2oz – Picket Fence
  • Americana Decor Outdoor Living 2oz – Poolside

Getting Started

Terra Cotta Pot DIY Lighthouse Garden Project

Here are a couple of the Outdoor Living Paint Colors.

Terra Cotta Pot DIY Lighthouse Garden Project

Step 1 – Paint Pots White

I started off painting all my pots white.  I needed a total of three coat, letting each coat dry 5 minutes.

Terra Cotta Pot DIY Lighthouse Garden Project

I only needed to use one bottle of this paint, to paint all three pots!

Terra Cotta Pot DIY Lighthouse Garden Project

Step 2 – Add Your Blue Accent Color

Now let’s add our accent color to the lighthouse. I went around the bottom of each pot with the Poolside color.  I didn’t tape it off, just freehanded it.

Terra Cotta Pot DIY Lighthouse Garden Project

I needed a total of two coats for this step.  This paint dries really fast, so by the time I’m finished with the last pot, I’m can go over the first pot again.

Terra Cotta Pot DIY Lighthouse Garden Project

Step 3 – Glue Pots together

Now let’s stick our pots together.  I pulled out my “handy dandy” E6000 glue to connect the pots. I added a little glue on the inside edge of the pots and firmly placed them together.  For this step I let the pots dry overnight.

Step 4 – Add your Light

I found a solar light at Wal-Mart to place at the top of the Lighthouse.  I used a small hack saw to cut the bottom of the solar light off, so that it would sit flush on the top of the lighthouse.  I added a little E6000 glue to this part as well, and let sit overnight.

Create a Terra Cotta Pot DIY Lighthouse Garden Project

Step 5 – Add Windows

For the window I decided to change this step last minute.  I was originally going to use the black Iron gate paint.  But I cut out my window shape in black vinyl to use as a stencil. Then I decided to just stick with the black vinyl as my window.  That vinyl won’t go anywhere.

But you can always paint in your window as well.  Both options will work.

Terra Cotta Pot DIY Lighthouse Garden Project

Finishing Touches

Now let’s take is baby outside and display it!

Terra Cotta Pot DIY Lighthouse Garden Project

I’m very excited with how this DIY Lighthouse turned out, I really wanted to keep it simple with the details.  But you can get pretty detailed with a project like this as well. I pinned some great ideas on my Pinterest page.

I made this Foam Lighthouses a couple years ago and really wanted to have similar looks.

Craft room organization is very important to me and my life style. I created the Pegboard organization project to help get my craft supplies organized.

Craft Room Pegboard Organization Idea

Let’s talk Pegboard Organization! Pegboard projects are super popular right now, just search Pinterest and you’ll see. We use them in so many ways, so today I wanted to show you how to use this 12×12 pegboard to help organize your craft supplies. I originally made this over at the Darice Blog last month.

I found this awesome Pegboard on the Darice site. If you search the term pegboard, then a ton of different styles will POP up.

So let’s get started!

Pegboard Organization Supplies Needed:

DIY Craft Room Pegboard Organization Idea

I really like the natural look of the wood already, I just wanted to add a little POP of color and embellishment to this pegboard.

Craft Room Pegboard Organization Idea

So I pulled out some fun colors that I already have throughout my craft room.

Craft Room Pegboard Organization Idea

I really wanted to create a cross stitch look with this pegboard.  So I pulled out a thin paint brush to be able to create that look the best.

Craft Room Pegboard Organization Idea

Since this is a 12×12 pegboard I wanted the pattern to be simple, but if you plan on grouping multiple pegboards together you can get more detailed with your design.

Craft Room Pegboard Organization Idea

I laid out my shelves to see where exactly I wanted the design to go.

Now that is a fun and simple design to make!

Once your paint has dried you can add your wooden dowels.  I bought an extra pack of dowels so that I can hang some more items on the bottom, like my paint brushes and scissors.

Fabulous Wal-Mart Shoe Makeover https://www.craftsbycourtney.com/how-to-crafts/fabulous-wal-mart-shoe-makeover/ https://www.craftsbycourtney.com/how-to-crafts/fabulous-wal-mart-shoe-makeover/#respond Fri, 22 Mar 2019 13:59:33 +0000 https://www.craftsbycourtney.com/?post_type=craft&p=11299 Fabulous Wal-Mart Shoe Makeover
I love a makeover project, but it's usually for the home. Today I'm sharing a shoe makeover for a simple DIY fashion piece. I had this shoe makeover done in no time.
]]>
Fabulous Wal-Mart Shoe Makeover

Good morning everyone! I’m so excited to share this Shoe Makeover with you! This is a project I’ve been wanting to do for awhile now, especially during the holidays.  I just never had time. Sooo here it goes.

I originally planned on doing this project on a pair of heels, but I found these leopard shoes in the clearance section at Wal-Mart ($3.00). I’ve bought several pairs of these Wal-Mart shoes over the years and I just love them.  So I thought why not take them to the next level and give them a cute chic makeover.

Let’s get started!

Shoe Makeover Supplies Needed:

  • Shoes
  • Jewelry Wire Cutters
  • Krazy Glue or E600 Glue
  • Clip on Earring
  • Jewelry Making Pendant

Fabulous Wal-Mart Shoe Makeover

Step 1 – Find Shoe

Like I said I found these shoes at Wal-Mart, they pretty much have this style shoe all the time.  I’ve gotten several different patterns in this style, but you can grab a shoe you already have or go buy a new pair.  These shoes cost about $5.98.

Fabulous Wal-Mart Shoe Makeover

Step 2 – Pick out Pendant

Find your Pendant.  Since I’m a contributor over at the Darice blog I found this pendant and many more styles of their site.  But you can grab some at any craft store in your area.

Fabulous Wal-Mart Shoe Makeover

Step 3 – Cut Excess off Pendant

Since this pendant is usually used to make jewelry I had to cut the little hooks off with a wire cutter.Fabulous Wal-Mart Shoe Makeover

Step 4 – Glue Pendant to Earring Clip

Now it’s time to add your glue, I had some Krazy glue on hand to use for this project.

Fabulous Wal-Mart Shoe Makeover

I dabbed a little Krazy glue on the back of the pendant and placed the earring clip on top.  I waited two minutes to let it dry fully, then I went around the edges with more Krazy glue.

Step 5 – Add Your Clip On
