Easy Craft Ideas and Elmer’s Giveaway

By April 26, 2012Reviews/Giveaways

I’m a crafting girl at heart…don’t get me wrong, I LOVE to bake but anytime I have the opportunity to get my hands on crafting supplies and be creative…I love it!

A little while back, Elmer’s sent me an amazing box stuffed full of great craft supplies. I have been having a blast creating and have a few Easy Craft Ideas to share with you today and guess what? YOU get to have a chance to win the same box full of Elmer’s Craft Supplies! And not only is Elmer’s giving away one…but two boxes!

You all know how I LOVE quick and easy! So first up…these Decorated Candle Votives are a perfect 5 minute fix!

Washi and Designer Tape is all the rage right now! So I was really excited to see that Elmer’s has a Designer Masking Tape and it’s really cute!

Here’s what I used…

Decorated Candle Votive Supplies

  • Elmer’s Designer Masking Tape {it comes 3 rolls to a pack and there are 6 different packs available}
  • Glass containers from The Dollar Tree
  • Candles from The Dollar Tree
  • Scissors to cut tape


Wrap glass container with Elmer’s Designer Masking Tape. The tape is repositionable and was really easy to put on.

Next up is this adorable Spring Flower Wreath. We used Elmer’s Spray Adhesive, the X-ACTO Knife and the X-ACTO Self-Healing Craft Mat. And let me tell you my friends…if you don’t have the Self-Healing Craft Mat…head to Walmart or other craft store and BUY one! It’s amazing…really!

This cute little Summer Flag Banner was made with just a few easy supplies…scrapbook paper, die cut, twine and Elmer’s Tape Runner. You can certainly change up the style and color of the flags to match your decor. The Flag Banner would also make a really cute birthday party decoration!

And last…but definitely not least…are the Mother’s Day Cupcake Toppers! LOVE them!! I used a couple more of the Elmer’s Products on these…X-ACTO Decorative Shapes Stencil, Tape Runner and Glue Dots. I’ve mentioned to you several times before, but let me tell you again…LOVE the Glue Dots!
