Make a Seahorse with Dew Drops


 

Hi everyone, and happy Saturday!  Victoria here with a fun and easy project using a variety of colors and shapes of dew drops.

 

Ingredients:

Paper Mache sea horse (from Bare Naked Crafts)

White Gesso

Acrylic Paint Lumiere by Jacquard – Halo Pink Gold and Metallic Russet

Acrylic Paint Prima Art Alchemy Sparks – Raven Black

Liquid Adhesive

Dew Drops in red, orange, yellow, and gold

Steps:

 

 

 

 

 


 

Prepare your paper mache sea horse by painting it with white gesso prior to adding the layers of acrylic paint.  Let dry completely between layers so that the paper mache doesn’t break down.

Add dew drops, changing shapes as you go, with liquid adhesive and let dry thoroughly.  (Don’t worry if it looks like a hot mess at first.  It will dry beautifully!)

 

 

Continue to add dew drops and embellish as you wish.

 

Thanks for being with me to do this simple home decoration project.  You will love embellishing with dew drops.

Magnetic Frames and Dew Drops

Hello, Kelly here, hope you have a happy holiday! I am on the eve of Christmas and looking forward to spending time with family. Today, I have some quick and easy magnetic frames to hold all those special memories that are made this time of year.

Supplies –

Magnetic frames
Glue
These frames were fun to make, I used the coordinating color of Dew Drops to the frame, I started to glue them on and would do about 3 dew drops at a time then work on the other frame. This would allow the glue to set a bit before I added more along the edge. The frames look so much better! I love the Dew Drops on them. These will be put on my fridge with pictures of my kids after the holidays!

 

 

 

Hope you try blinging up some of the items around your house using Robin’s Nest Dew Drops!
This is my last post for Robin’s Nest, but I will be using Dew Drops on many projects to come, stayed tuned!

Shiny Butterfly Collage

Hello, today I am on the blog with Robin’s Nest using their dew drops in a collage project. Summer is winding down but there are still a few butterflies around here.
To create this collage, I started by attaching a napkin with common plastic wrap to a canvas panel. To attach a napkin to almost any surface, on an ironing board or towel cover with a piece of paper larger than your piece that will be covered with the napkin, lay the canvas panel or cardstock down cut off the plastic wrap to slightly overlap the panel. Then lay the napkin over that then lay another piece of printer paper over the sandwich and iron for a few seconds, keep the iron moving. This will melt the plastic wrap and adhere the napkin to any surface.

I used a Butterfly from Clear Scraps and used silver embossing powder on it to cover the surface, I covered it twice to get good coverage and shine. I then added Robin’s Nest dewdrops to the butterfly and to the canvas panel in several colors to match the flowers. I glued the butterfly down to the canvas and added the words along with drilling holes and adding the wire.

Upcycled plastic rings into wine glass charms

 Hello all,

I love to upcycle items, that you would normally throw away, into my art work.  I had saved these little plastic rings from some type of packaging and thought that they would make great wine glass charms.  Original Dew Drops fit perfectly onto these rings and made for bright and pretty wine glass charms.

Gateway Dew Drops

Island Blossom Dew Drops

 

Other Supplies:

Recycled/upcycled rings

Tim Holtz Idea-ology, Loop Pins

Butterfly charms

Beacon 3-in-1 Craft Glue

Instructions:

1) Cut recycled ring to create split opening.

2) Adhere Original Dew Drops onto plastic ring.


3) Try different color schemes.

4) Attach butterfly charms with Loop Pins.

There is just something about creating something cool out of items that would have been otherwise discarded.  It’s equally nice to find the perfect complement of the new to go with the recycled. The Dew Drops are just so bright a cheery!

Happy day!
