My kiddos actually head back to school the end of this week! I know! This mason jar desk organizer will make a perfect back to school teacher gift this year. A couple of jars turn into a desk organizer for teacher or for YOU! Add this project to your must make list. Be sure to pick the colors that will coordinate with your home decor if you are keeping this one. Y’all organization in mason jars is my favorite type of organizing. But you are not surprised right? This post is a part of my design team status with DecoArt and I am compensated for my participation. However all projects and opinions are my own.
It is time for another day of quick crafts and I am sharing my dyed glitter clothespins today. This week is Craft Lightning week and each day I will be sharing a craft that takes 15 minutes or less to complete. Each afternoon I will be sharing quick craft features from around the web. Want a chance to be featured? Be sure to link up your quick crafts to our Craft Lightning linky party. Now for some dyed glitter clothespins!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of FrogTape brand painter’s tape for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
I was sent some FrogTape painter’s tape to try and knew that I would make a color block book shelf immediately. If you have been hanging around here, you may know that we are in the middle of a teen room remodel and the book shelf needed a splash of fun. I think I accomplished the fun factor….what do you think?
Yep it was your typical boring cheap-o laminate bookshelf. I started by taking the shelves and doors off. I then gave everything a really good cleaning, sanding, and another cleaning. I then used my FrogTape painter’s tape to mask off areas.
You see there are a total of NINE colors on this bookshelf so masking was very important. I wanted my lines to be super clean as well so FrogTape painter’s tape was the best choice for this job. FrogTape® is the only tape treated with paint block technology, a super absorbent polymer that reacts with the water in latex paint and instantly gels to form a micro-barrier that seals the edges of the tape, which helps prevent paint bleed. This means you are left with awesome lines like these once the tape is removed.
Now all that is left is to continue to mask off and paint all of the areas of your color block book shelf. Yep I even did the inside of the bottom cabinet.
This project takes a bit of patience but it is so worth it. Plus it will make a huge splash in my daughter’s new room. Be sure to stick around here to see the full reveal soon. I also lined the back of the bookshelf with wrapping paper to add even more color.
This is going to be one colorful room reveal. I could not have managed this project without the super clean lines from FrogTape painter’s tape. I am converted now. All of my painter’s tape will be green. What about y’all? Have you ever tried it? Take my advice and give it a try…you may never go back.
Be sure to follow @frogtape on twitter as well for even more project inspiration. Got a paint project coming up? Dreaming of stripes? Tons of colors? Don’t go any further until you give FrogTape painter’s tape a try!
I used two of those dollar frames you find at the craft store. These actually came from the craft section at Walmart.
First I dug through my box of card making supplies and tried out different things on both frames. I am in love with these lattice pieces. There were a couple of different designs.
I decided roughly how I wanted the picture frames to look and what embellishments I wanted to use. I had to throw in some glitter on at least one frame.
I then painted both frames in colors that would work with what I had in mind. After those dried, I added my embellishments using Mod Podge and removing any bubble or wrinkles as I went.
A coat of Mod Podge went over the entire surface after everything was in place.
After everything dried, I used a craft knife to trim any excess off of the paper pieces from both the outer edge and the center portion.
The love frame got my favorite picture of my daughter and her dog! I had this one planned from the very beginning. I thought she would love a picture of her dog on her desk.
I stamped a tag with “BFF” and hung off one corner of the second frame. Then I added a picture of my daughter and her BFF to the center.
They are the perfect addition to her work space and a touch of home via mom!
