It’s Tuesday Morning! #25

Hello, It’s still Tuesday right?

Ok, I have a few hours left.. Today I am using the paint I found at Tuesday Morning.   Chalkboard paint in red and green, perfect for a Holiday project.   I am also using the white chalkboard marker.

Supplies I used from Tuesday Morning. Red & Green Chalkboard Paint & White Chalkboard paint marker.

I ordered a wooden #2 and #5 for an easy and fun Holiday project. Using the chalkboard paint from Tuesday Morning I painted the numbers with the red paint and added the green for the polka dots. I used the white marker to highlight the polka dots. I will have to make another set since I was playing with the green paint a little and too much of the paint spread. However you can still get an idea of how cute and easy this project is.

You can see the white around the #2. You can also see the #5 needs to be touched up before I go around the polka dots with the white marker.

Tuesday Morning usually has a collection of glitter paints, fabric tapes.. or if you lucky your Tuesday Morning might still have these paints left.. pick them up!

I will be back next Tuesday with my Tuesday Morning Ribbon Trees.

It’s Tuesday Morning! Christmas Tree~

Happy Tuesday Morning!

If it’s cold, icy, or snowing where you are then it’s a perfect day to stay inside to make a quick, unique and fun Holiday gift. Using Tuesday Morning supplies of course!

This is another Christmas Tree idea that has been around for a long time, I first seen a few of them on Pinterest.  Of course every time I see one on-line they look a little different, everyone gets pretty creative with them. I personally prefer using vintage thread spools or a vintage candle stick holder.
If you want to see the cutest trees ever and learn how to make them step by step, then you need to see Margie Romney-Aslett’s Spark the Event workshops.   Margie makes them and hosts on-line workshops teaching you how to make them with her own personal flair. She sells them as kits or you can take her on-line classes.   Please view her site for her Spark The Event classes.   Margie has a class for every season/holiday.   I have only had time for one so far.. but if I had the time I would take them all.  Margie picks up most of her supplies from Target or the dollar store.  So treat yourself to a class with Margie, then you can get started creating your own special homemade Christmas gifts.

Here is my version of the paper tree I made.  I used a few of Margie’s ideas and a few of my own.  I am using  some supplies from Tuesday Morning .   I love the gold textured napkins, the gold and silver trims from the Christmas wrapping area, and the tiny burlap bows that i found in the paper crafts area.

Mini bows are on one tree, notice the gold bow and see the layers of napkins.

A few of my trees.. ready to be delivered to a few of my favorite friends. I have about 10 more to make.

I didn’t give you too many directions or a fabulous supply list because I want you to check out the
Spark Your Event workshops!  And if you do.. please tell her I sent you!

Have a great trip to your local Tuesday Morning to stock up on some fun trims, napkins, and mini bows.
