20 DIY Chandeliers to Brighten Up Your Space

A few weeks ago we ventured into the world of DIY lighting, complete with vintage-style marquees, yarn lanterns, and the like. While researching this, we came across a whole bunch of gorgeous DIY chandeliers as well! Making your own chandelier definitely takes a little more elbow grease than a mason jar with a light bulb in it, but all of these projects are totally doable and perfect for weekend making. Be sure to let us know if you have a favorite in the comments below – and stay tuned for…

use Mod Podge to make glass clings, that you can put on any vase or in any window.  The supplies are  minimal, just mix MP with acrylic craft paint (those little 50 cent bottles work fine) and paint a big sheet of each color on some wax paper. Let dry overnight, then cut out your shapes!

In the Art Room: First Grade Koinobori for Children's Day!

Are ya'll familiar with the Japanese holiday called Children's Day? I think sometimes my students are convinced that everyday is Children's Day which is why nearly every night is Grape-Flavored Grown-Up Drink Day for this art teacher. But I digress. The real Children's Day is celebrated in Japan on the 5th day of May which, in case you didn't know, is the 5th month.

Make Your Own Heart Wax Paper - The Idea Room

Are you giving away treats for this Valentine's Day? Make your own heart wax paper to wrap these gifts!

Start with a bottle of glue and some wax paper.  Add google eyes, but those can always be drawn on too.  Just let the kids puddle a pile of glue onto the paper.  The only trick is that all spots have to be filled in with glue.  Otherwise, the ghost won't peel off properly.  Let dry overnight or longer.  Carefully peel it off the wax paper and let it finish drying on the other side.  I used a hole punch to put a hole through it so we could hang it.

I wanted to reuse them for this years theme, so I repainted them with the same brown and black spray paints that used on my other cave rocks. Now I can use them as cave rocks in the Firefly Caverns.
