Holiday Tuesday!

Happy Holiday Tuesday, crafters!

Today I found some more fabulous finds!  

Printable Paint Stick Ornaments


Today's Fabulous Finds has such 'fabulous finds'.  There is a whole tutorial and free printable on how to make these adorable ornaments that can be used for all sort of things.  You can use them as tags on gifts, on trees, anything your crafty mind can think of doing with them.

Ready to get Started?  Here's what you'll need:

Paint sticks:  The paint sticks must be the large 5 gallon sticks (nearly 1 1/2" wide).  Lowe's will sometimes give them to you for free as well as Home Depot.   Home Depot sells them in bundles.  Wal-mart sells them for .28 each.
Tip:  If you ask the employee if you can buy some from them to make a craft, most often they will just give them to you for free.  Yep, FREE!

Ok that is all you need, go to the website and get the printables or you can do anything else you like with those.  Christmas paper and mod podge it to the wood, cut your own phrases, paint them, those are just other ideas - which are endless.

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you enjoy as much as I do.  Thanks to Today's Fabulous Finds!

Enjoy the journey, live well, laugh often, love a lot, and be happy ;)

  1. Hey Jackie!

    You have been one busy gal, wow! I am going to catch up on all your projects and comment on all on the latest post. As for this project, I love the way you think! I love working with these paint sticks. When my son was in 4th grade he had to build a castle for school. While the other kids had small scale cardboard ones my son and I used paint sticks and empty boxes of cereal, etc., to build a two story 4 ft long castle, complete with artificial grass and draw bridge. It was nothing short of spectacular! (And maybe a bit over the top...lol). But it was fun!

    Such a great idea!
