New Items! Meet Glitter Junk! @ Sugar Beet Crafts on Etsy

Hello Everybody!

I just wanted to drop a quick line because I have been super busy making new stuff for my Etsy store.

I created a new line called Glitter Junk! It started off as just a fun project for myself. I love glitter and have been really into it this season. I wanted glittery jewelry that was not to child like, but I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted. So I decided to make my own!

I loved it so much and received so many compliments I decided to make a bunch for the Etsy site.

These charms are so fun and really pretty. They sparkle at every angle and have an awesome 3D effect. Each one takes about 3 days to make and every one is unique.

My favorite part of crafting is having an idea or vision in my head and then actually fabricating it into something real. Working with resin is kind of a challenge, especially when working in a small space.

In the end, I am super happy with how they came out….too happy, its hard to part with them.  Me and sparkly go hand in hand!

I would love to know what you think! They are at https://www.etsy.com/shop/SugarBeetCrafts

more items coming soon.

I hope you enjoy!

Valentines Day Upcycled Tags on Etsy

A few months ago my mother contracted me to make her a bunch of tags she could use for gifts and cookie trays. She loved them so much I decided to take a stab at some for my Etsy store.

They are made out of old recycled file folders and index cards.

Here are the one’s I made for my mom:

Free Bead Loom Pattern: Heart Bracelet

loom bead pattern

 

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend! If you have never tried beading on a loom, you should totally try it. It is super easy and super addicting, especially when you can create your own patterns.  I created the heart bracelet pattern a few years back when I decided to make bracelets for a few friends and family members. It’s the first pattern I ever attempted so I decided to keep it simple. I do really like how they came out.

I used the same pattern but varied the colors, some were black, red, and grey another was black, metallic blue and clear. The variations are endless.

If you are not familiar with Loom Beading here is a great tutorial by Jewelry Supply on YouTube:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=ScjJsOIQP3w

Bead looms are not very expensive unless you want to get fancy. They usually range from about $9.00 and up.

Here is the bracelet:

Making the pattern:

Each dot is a bead, fill in the holes until you’re happy with your pattern, then get beading!

Something about the sunshine and warm breeze makes me in the mood to make jewelry.  I love to use nature as my inspirations.

The coral necklace was inspired by a large Bougainvillea plant in pink.

A New Finished Project!

A New Finished Project!

I had this round white canvas and this extra pocket. I had no idea how this was going to turn out. I had no plan in mind, but I actually really like how it turned out a whole lot. The beads were the best touch, it looked really unfinished before. The beads also really brighten the whole thing. I love how little touches make a big difference.

Would you like to own it? I am selling it here —> https://www.etsy.com/listing/182339541/beaded-canvas-wall-pocket?ref=shop_home_active_4

Well Owl Be! Make Your Own Wall Decorations

Making your own wall art is fun and easy!
Materials Needed:

  • material
  • canvas
  • paint brushes
  • turpentine (if using Oil)
  • Mod Podge
  1. Gather your materials.
  2. Make sure your canvas is clean, if you notice any dust or dirt give it a wipe.
  3. Start with the oil paint. The owl canvas is painted simple black, but you could depending on your fabric create awesome backgrounds.  I love the richness of oil paint, but it is serious stuff. It is slow drying so you can add colors and mix colors.  It does however, take a while to dry. So if you are using oil this process is going to take days rather than hours.
  4. While drying find your fabric and cut out some designs.  Trim any fly away treads. I cut out an owl
  5. Brush the Mod Podge over the fabric cut outs and apply to the canvas. Once placed on the canvas brush the Mod Podge over the top of the fabric.
  6. Let dry.
  7. Once dry, spray with sealer.
  8. Let dry.
  9. Once that is done, I added the small rhinestones with more Mod Podge.

The trip to Joann’s

It was supposed to be a simple trip to Joann Crafts. I needed an ink pad…and maybe a new stamp.

But there I was…

Surrounded.

It was me and miles of fabric.The Colors, the Prints, the Patterns. Something came over me, ...ahhh, the possibilities!!! 

I could not control myself. Maybe It was all the home and garden TV I was watching way too much of, or maybe it was the Ugly Betty re-runs. Whatever it was,  I knew that I needed to learn to sew.

So, there was the mission… teach myself to sew.

Equipped with my mom on speed dial, a vintage sewing book and the internet, I was ready to go.

Needless to say I bought way more than a stamp pad.

I needed to start somewhere, so there was no better place to start than with Bags.

Here are a few I made as gifts.

Look Forward to some awesome tutorials!
