Airplane Room Decor {Elmer’s Looks For Less}

I rarely show pictures of our home decor.  And for good reason.  We are renting our home!  It can be really difficult to decorate the way I want to in a rental property.  There are many things I would LOVE to change.  (Take, for example, the pinkish hue of the paint color on the walls in my entire home.)  But more often than not, I just don't attempt much decorating at all.  I know that's pathetic, but it's true.

However slowly but surely, I have been making progress on Little Man's Big Boy airplane bedroom.  Elmer's gave me the opportunity to add some fun and easy decor and on the cheap!  I participated in their "Looks For Less" challenge. Using their supplies, I re-created several items I had my eye on... but my projects cost me next to nothing!  Easy on the eyes, easy on the pocket book.  🙂

Today I have TWO tutorials to share with you!  I'll show you how I created the faux airplane canvases plus the faux wooden "FLY" letters using Elmer's products.

If you can believe it, I only spent $5.73 on both projects.  Not bad, eh?

Elmer's sent me some fabulous supplies to use for these projects.  They generously sent me:

1 - Black and 2 - White 20x30 Foam Boards

Several glue sticks (they are by far my favorite glue sticks!),

X-ACTO Knife,

Several Painters sets

Plus $25 to spend on supplies (I considered this a challenge to spend far less!)

Are you ready for TWO cheap and easy tutorials?  Let's get started!

Elmer’s Prize Pack Giveaway {Now Closed}

This giveaway is now closed!

Congratulations to Carol and Blanca!

I was recently asked by the lovely people at Elmer's to throw a party!  And not just any party--A crafting party!  How could I resist?!  They sent me tons of goodies.  It was like Christmas opening up the box that they sent me.  We spread the Elmer's love by hosting not one, not two, but THREE crafting parties.  Not bad eh??

Each party guest was hooked up with all kinds of free crafting supplies... After creating something spectacular, everyone got to leave with their loot.  Thanks, Elmer's, for all of the incredible goodies!!

Before getting to the giveaway, let me share a bit about the parties and crafts with you...

Party #1

My sisters, Mom, and I got together for a little crafting time.  I had so much fun that I am planning on getting family together to craft a lot more often!   We may be related, but it's fun to see how we all craft differently!

My sisters, Mom, and my sweet nephew with their finished products.

We had a drawing for awesome prizes!

Both of my sisters made sets of USA Sparkler's.  You can see the full tutorial here.

We also made another Old McDonald board using the Elmer's craft foam and some scrapbooking supplies.

USA Sparklers {Thanks, Elmers!}

Hello, Oopsey Daisies!

Is there anything better than crafting with friends?!

Over the weekend, Elmers sponsored a little crafting party (several, in fact!) for some of my family and friends.  They really did spoil us, so thank you, Elmers!!  I'll share some more details on that later this week.

My sisters and I made a set of these lovelies to help us get ready for the Fourth of July:


Seriously--how did the Fourth of July creep up on me this year?!  I love the Fourth of July--the sparklers; the heat; the stars and the stripes!  And my favorite part: We always make a scrumptious batch of homemade ice cream!  Now we have a little something to help get us in the patriotic spirit!

Here is how we made our sparklers...

We started out by using our razor blades to cut out 3 stars from our Elmers foam board.

 

After tracing them, we used Tacky Glue to adhere patriotic scrapbook paper to the fronts and backs of each star.  We used a bit of distress ink for a special homey touch!

 

Next, we added some chipboard letters and any embellishments.  (It was interesting to see my sisters' personalities.  One of my sisters embellished her stars tons, and one left them simple and elegant!)
