DIY Tutorial: Paper Pumpkin Treats Bowl | onelmon

Hello all! I’m sharing yet another Halloween-inspired craft tutorial today. It’s a pumpkin (or pumpkin wannabe) this week. We are going to make a paper bowl to hold the treats. It’s not a very big bowl (for someone with a sweet tooth like me) but it certainly could hold quite a number of sweets. Care to give it a go? Oh, and did I mention we are doing upcycling today?

Glittery Paper Butterfly on ring! | onelmon

When Amy from One Artsy Mama announced the 3rd material, I know it’s going to be a fun (and messy) week!

The chosen material is glitters! What do you guys first think of when the word glitter is thrown at you? Bling bling accessories? Christmas decorations? For me, I quickly decided that Continue reading

Dried Paint Painting

Hi All! We are going do some painting today (or should I say fake painting?). Anybody here who is good at painting or at least is fond of painting? **Confession time** In my case, if you ask me to paint something, you can expect to see something a 5-year old would come out with when you ask him/her to paint. Yes, I paint terribly, maybe more terrible than a 5-year-old kid (sigh). I’m one of those people who always accidentally misguides the paint brush outside the drawing line and when it happens, tries hard to cover the mistake by spreading the coloring area wider, wider, wider… and then realizes that the drawing is now out of shape, throws the drawing away, and cries in the corner (sob). So why did I choose to do something that I’ve always tried to avoid? Continue reading
