Hi, everyone! Welcome to another month of our Int’l Bloggers Club Challenge! I look forward to this post every month because it is so funny to see the different things my bloggers’ friends do! If you remember, I teamed up three lovely ladies and each month we share different traditions, last month we talked about “summer activities” and the previous one was “furniture makeovers“. This month is about back to school crafts. Can you believe summer is almost over? It’s a pity for me, I could live in perpetual summer schedule all my life but I also enjoy the routines of the rest of the year.
Here in Spain, kids finish school around twenty something of June, and come back to school around the first or second week of September, depending on the type of school they are attending.
My daughters are really excited about starting again their dancing lessons and meet their friends too. They also wanted to make something special for the teachers, and we went hunting together to my craft room where we found some tins and a piece of scrap wood.
Little Miss S was the first one and she picked a tin
She used some chalk paint to paint it and gave it two coats
Once it was painted and dry, we searched for some embellishments and she chose lace and some fake pearls.
Then she decided she wanted to use some blue rhinestones too, and I helped her attaching everything with a hot glue gun.
Love how it looks and her teacher will be able to use it as a pencil holder, or flower pot or she can give it many other uses… I am sure she will love it too!
Then Miss A saw the pretty tin her sister made and wanted to make one too. She used different colors and different embellishments too, and she ended up with this
I love how both of them are open minded and used those colors of rhinestones; I would have never dared to try but I have to say they look great!
Miss A’s flamenco teacher is very talented and she performs every week a famous show called “Carmen”. As we had a flyer, Miss A asked for a piece of scrap wood because she wanted to make something special.
She painted it red and brush some wood glue at the back of the flyer because it was quite thick. Then she made some white polka dots to emulate a typical flamenco dress and let it dry.
She also design the tag with a piece of paper and some lace, isn’t it pretty?
I am sure all the teachers will be happy to receive such precious gifts because they are not only beautiful but they are also made with lots of love.
Thanks so much for visiting and don’t forget to stop by to see what the other ladies have to share!!
