She Flocked Some Easter Chicks

She Flocked Some Easter Chicks

So I did a little flocking this weekend and luckily for you I got all of the inappropriate flocking jokes out of the way before I sat down to write this blog post…. However, I do have a pun about how I scored a sweet Recollections flocking powder set at Michaels for super CHEEP! Aren’t these little chicks a great addition to your Easter decor? My favorite part about using flocking powder is that it adds a nice vintage look to all of your craft projects. Here’s what you need if you want to make some flocked chicks of your own. It’s hard to see in that photo but those are tiny brown brads I used for the eyes. The only trick is to squish the foam balls a little so your chicks don’t roll all over the place. Add wings by swirling on a dollop of hot glue to each side and don’t get cheep with the flocking powder! Sorry, couldn’t help myself. Craft On.        ...
Flashback Friday: Plastic Easter Egg and Pom Pom Crafts

Flashback Friday: Plastic Easter Egg and Pom Pom Crafts

Last Spring I found myself with a pom pom making addiction that I just couldn’t seem to shake. It seemed innocent at first but those fuzzy little guys combined with a plastic egg buying habit (easy to do when you have a Dollar Store nearby) basically created the perfect crafting storm and rendered my craft room completely unsafe to walk in. It was like a crafty Easter Explosion! So naturally (when I got sick of Cliff rolling his eyes) I made my best attempts at combining my Easter egg and my pom pom addictions into a few cleverly produced projects–because that’s what crafters do right? Here are the results….. It’s a cute Easter wreath but better suited for a school door rather than ours this year! Now…. How about my Fragle rock style bouquet? Eh? For some reason I felt the need to thoroughly document these two projects on my Andrea Currie Crafts blog–So if you are feeling like you want to dive into a few plactic-y and pom pom-y projects check out my tutorials here! Also included in that blog post is a video of my Fragle rock bouquet construction which you are fully allowed to belly laugh at! Craft On.  ...
