I know I'm not the only Mom who is always looking for something a little bit different, something original for the kids to take to school. I mean, that's why we all LOVE Pinterest so much right? Well, Halos sent me a bunch of little craft goodies and I just totally fell in love with these little Halos Love Bugs! They're perfect for the kids to help with, cute, simple and not candy. So nice for a change.Read More
Disclosure: I received samples of ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape to complete this project. I was not compensated for this post and all opinions and thoughts are my own. With that being said, read on!
I love to DIY, I would classify myself as a DIY'er and honestly, I think handmade gifts are the best. I love the imperfections, it gives the gift so much more meaning and heart. Today I am sharing with you a very easy DIY idea that can be used for any day. But since Mother's Day is just around the corner, I thought this would be great for your kids to make for all the Mother's in their life.
It is pretty easy and can be made with materials you probably already have on hand. The one tip I would give is to use Scotch Blue Painter's Tape, it just helps to prevent bleeding and makes the crafters life easier.
Go look around your house, do you have a pot laying around your garden? I bet you do. Grab it! Gather up your paint, scissors and Scotch Blue Painter's Tape. Now you're ready!
I cut my tape into thinner strips and just went for a little design that would be easy for my daughter to follow and paint. You could do so many different styles with the tape, chevron, stripes, or even go for a curve, it just takes a little more patience.
See how easy, simple and fun? The kids are always up for painting. This project takes very little prep, so it can be last minute or done in advance and make a ton of them! Bonus: The proud look on the kids faces when they take off the strips of tape to reveal the design they helped create.
For this little project I used the Scotch Blue Painter's Tape to create a message on a coffee mug. Another fun and easy project for the kiddos to do for a gift.
*Tip: don't forget to seal the paint with a sealant, just pick one up from your local craft store.
Thanks for reading my easy peasy tutorial for a quick DIY gift idea for the kiddos to make.
