Summer Fun Week 3: Crafting Mixed Media Masterpieces

Here is a perfect way to repurpose empty egg cartons. Andrea Atwater shows us how to create this Mod Podge Rocks project.

Project Steps:

1. Paint your canvas with several coats of a color of your choice.

2. Cut up your egg carton so each egg spot will be a flower bud. Cut down the middle of the carton and trim the excess areas. You can trim each egg carton spot (flower) to have petals. The rest of the egg carton can be used to hold the paint.

3. Paint the egg carton flowers with several coats of colors of your choice. Let dry.

4. Once the flowers are dry, coat with Sparkle Mod Podge. Extra coats will provide more sparkle.

5. Trim the pipe cleaners to the correct length for the stems. Tie them together and glue the "bouquet" to the canvas with craft glue.

6. Add a button to each flower to resemble a bud. Glue the flowers to the canvas. Let dry before hanging.


Materials Used:

9'' x 12'' Canvas

Egg carton (not foam)

Americana acrylic paint

Mod Podge Sparkle

Pipe cleaners (green)

Ribbon (coordinating color)

Buttons (white suggested)

Craft glue



Summer Fun Week 2: Lounge at the Beach with Crab Cups

Are you taking a beach vacation this summer? These crafty critters can take the journey down to the shore with you. Andrea Atwood shows us how.


Project Steps:

1. Prepare your cups by cutting off about an inch and a half off the top. Paint the outside of the cups (might require 2 coats).

2. Cut a beige colored pipe cleaner into 5 equal pieces for the crabs' eyes. Repeat with another pipe cleaner for a total of 10 pieces (enough for 5 crabs). Add a dab of white craft glue to the tip of each pipe cleaner piece to attach a googly eye. Set aside to dry.

3. For the crab forearm claws, cut a pipe cleaner in half. Bend one piece in half. Starting at the bend, twist the pipe cleaner together, leaving the last 3/4-inch open. Bend those two open pieces into a curve to create the claw. Repeat with the other pipe cleaner half. You will get 2 forearm claws from 1 pipe cleaner.

4. For the crab legs, cut 2 more pipe cleaners into 6 equal pieces. You will get 3 pieces from 1 pipe cleaner. Bend the pieces in three places (like the picture) into an S-shape.

5. Use a toothpick to poke 2 holes in the front of the cup and insert the forearm claws. Secure with white glue. Poke 3 more holes in each side of the cup. On each side you will insert the legs, one pointing forward, and the other two poining backward. Secure with white glue.

6. At the top of the cup, directly above the front claw arms, poke 2 holes for the eyes. Add a dab of glue atop the holes and insert the pipe cleaner eyes (with googly eyes on top).

7. Let everything dry before displaying.

Materials Used:

Styrofoam cups

Americana acrylic paints

Pipe cleaners (to match paint colors)

Googly eyes

White craft glue

Paint brushes

Mickey-Inspired Autograph Book

Are you headed to Disney or concerts this year? Kids will want a handy autograph book to get signatures from all of their favorites! Andrea Atwater shows us how to make this adorable keepsake they'll want to keep forever.

Project steps:

1) Use masking or painters tape to mask off just over a half of the bottom of the book cover. Wrap the tape around to the insides of the covers and go all the way around the book. Make sure the tape is stuck to the cover all the way in so there's no bleeding through or leaking in the spine area.


2) Use a foam brush to paint the bottom half of the book red. It will take many light coats, but the paint dries fast. I used a blow dryer a bit to speed up the process. You won't see the lines that show in the painting steps. Just make sure you are even spreading the paint.


3) Let the red paint dry enough to pull the tape off. Then make sure you give the red a lot more to dry time or let the hair dryer help this. You will need to put another strip of tape over the red, so if it's not dry, you will pull off chips of the paint.

4) If you are using a white book, paint the top of the cover black and let dry also. You may need to touch up and bleeding, so be sure to have a nice fine brush.


5) Hot glue the buttons right on the cover as you can see. 

Materials used: 

Small sketchbook with white cover (if you can find a black book, that's fine, but it takes more paint to cover).

Red acrylic paint

Black acrylic paint

White buttons


Masking tape

Clear sealer
