I am so excited to be doing my first blog swap today. You can find me over at Home Crafts by Ali showing you how to make this really fun kid’s craft to brighten up your day.
Be sure to meet my blogging friend, Ali below. She is showing us a thrifty craft project she did with her girls this summer.
Hi there! I’m Ali and I am visiting today from Home Crafts by Ali. It’s great to be with you here at The Resourceful Mama! I’m a Mama myself to 2 wonderful daughters (10 & 7). With summer being here and the girls out of school, we have been busy with science projects, reading and working on some crafts. Today I’m going to share with you this thrifty and fun kids art project that we worked on this week.
During the summer I let my girls pick out some art projects to work on. They always see me painting and wanted to do a project for themselves. We found these little votive holders at a yard sale and my girls asked if they could decorate them. I thought it would be a fun project, so we got out our paints.
Glass votive holders
Clear Acrylic sealant
My older daughter decided to use the cotton swabs and the paintbrushes to decorate her votive. She decided to decorate hers with ladybugs and leaves.
My younger daughter decided to make a Harry Potter themed votive. It has Harry, snitches, a 3-headed dog, and Harry’s best friends Ron & Hermione.
My girls looked like they were having so much fun that I joined in and make one too!
It was a nice project for us to work on together. After we finished painting, I sprayed a clear sealant over the top of the paint so it will last longer. We don’t use candles very often, but the three of us like to collect things and this would be the perfect size for pretty rocks, seashells from trips to the beach, colorful buttons or beads.
