We are thrilled to be able to introduce you to the NEW Martha Stewart Decorative Paint Line brought to you by Plaid Crafts! YOU are going to love all of the options, tools, paint colors, ideas, and crafty inspiration that this new line has to offer!
Some “BACK TO SCHOOL” crafty fun was happening at my house this week thanks to Martha Stewart. I had fun making labeled storage cans for all my preschool supplies & I even made my kiddos special lunch boxes/supply totes. Which they LOVED! I am excited to share with you what supplies I used.
When I recieved my supplies from Plaid Crafts, I was SO excited to get started crafting up a storm…the packaging alone would make anyone want to get CRAFTY! Here are some details about the Martha Stewart Paint Line that is exclusively available at Michael’s stores in the US and Canada starting the last week of August.
There are 160 paint colors in 5 finisheds! (Satin, High Gloss, Glitter, Pearl, Metallic) All of the paints come in 2 oz. bottles and are non-toxic (so it is safe to use with your little ones!) The paint is formulated to work on all crafting surfaces including wood, metal, glass, ceramic, terra-cotta and fabric. It is indoor/outdoor safe, and dishwasher-safe on glass.
Stencils, paint brushses, applicator tops and bottles, a spray painting kit, and all sorts of really cool mediums are part of this AMAZING new line! Seriously, the crafting possibilities are endless!
I needed some cute and bright storage for my preschool class supplies. Since I am a craft hoarder, I had some empty formula and hot cocoa cans on hand to transform into holders for pencils, crayons, scissors, etc. I began by painting each can a different color using the new Satin Paints. I LOVED the colors. Such HAPPY colors! I loved the new large brush set (pictured below). I don’t think I can use a sponge brush again!
For the labeling, I used the adhesive letter stencils and foam pouncers. I was amazed at these little guys…the fact that they can be washed…dried…used again…washed…dried…used again….and on and on! Brilliant idea. The first few cans took a bit…I was cautious about the stencils…but it became quite easy and quick.
School totes/lunchboxes…I made and surprised my kids with these…they LOVED them. Even though they aren’t in the big school yet (last year of preschool), why not pack their lunch in a lunchbox just for fun! I had these tins (which I’ve been wanting to use forever) from the craft store and thought this would be perfect. I let my kids choose what they wanted on the front, sides and back from the Playroom stencil kit…and using the foam pouncers and brush kit stenciled on rockets and planets for my boy and butterflies and polka-dots for my girl. These were a hit!The loved having their name on them as well. I think they have carried them around most of the day!
I haven’t used stencils much before…and it took some practice, but I think the butterflies and rocket ship turned out great! I even think the kids can get in on the stencil fun next time. I would love to try using these stencils on fabric or canvas.
All Opinions are 100% mine….Full disclosure here.
