Kids’ Crafts: Tissue Paper

If you have a creative child around, there are many great craft supplies to keep them busy, and keep you worry-free. Keep the right supplies on hand, and crafting with your kid can be fun and help you build memories that can last well into their lives.

Tissue Paper is one of our favorite craft supplies because we always have some on hand in a variety of colors and because it is so easy to work with. There are so many crafts to be made with tissue paper that you can find projects for kids of every age. We like to craft as a family when we’re getting ready for a party, or on a rainy day. It’s nice to have materials that everyone can use and make their own!

Tissue Paper Flowers can be used to decorate for parties, to adorn accessories and clothing and in scrapbooking. These are simple enough for everyone to help with.

Glass Painting Techniques

I have to admit, I’ve never actually tried glass painting before, and  I knew I would need to do some research before trying it out for myself. There are so many different effects you can achieve using glass paints and vases. You can find inexpensive glass at the dollar store or even in the top shelf of your kitchen cabinets! My husband and I have a constant battle over the mason jars in our house – he uses them for canning and I use them for decorating. Once he’s used them once or twice, I wash them out and hide them in hard to reach cabinets. Once you’ve gathered your extra glass containers and pretty paints check out some of these tutorials for design ideas and tips.When your projects are complete feel free to post pictures of your new glass decor in the comment section!

 

These Modern Mason Jars are a great way to re-use or reclaim the mason jars in your own kitchen! Once you’re done with this project those old mason jars won’t be hiding any longer. These would be great for holding crafts supplies, or decorative knick knacks on a modern mantle place.
