Get ready for Christmas with me with some DIY Decor.
All of these supplies can be found at home, around the house or neighbourhood and at your local dollar store.
You will need:
Glitter glue / paint
Pine cones (make sure they’re completely dry and all the ‘petals’ have expanded)
Large or Tall Vase or Large Dish
Cinnamon spice or oil
Can of Metallic aerosol paint + cardboard box
Small set of Christmas lights (dollar store)
Dust off your old make-up and create some art!
This is the second art with make-up and this time with blue and green colours. I’m also using my power eye-shadows with water on water colour paper like watercolour, allowing for transparency.
This piece is inspired by how we sometimes feel that all the problems of our lives are making us feel like we’re drowning. If you notice there is a cross of light, which represents Christ Jesus. He is our Saviour if we choose to accept the freedom from sin and a life of pain and guilt and be reborn as a new creature. We can then walk in God’s love and live by his grace, overcoming the worlds temptations to live free and in constant joy.

Art with Make-Up – Time Lapse (previous week)
Got some make-up palettes kicking around, collecting dust or not getting used. Get inspired and create your own art.
I used make-up as a medium back in high school for one of my bi-weekly projects (create a small piece of art every two weeks on top of major projects). I didn’t come up with idea myself, as I saw someone else do it first. I wanted to delve back in and see what else I could come up with.
This art piece has a lot of warm colours, but I look forward to doing some next week in some blue/green tones. i have some great eyeliners that should make things interesting.
If anyone tries this out on their own, please feel free to upload a video reply, I would love to see what you all came up with.
As always if you have any requests, please feel free to shout out in the comments below.
Summer DIY jewellery has such a fresh look to it, and you appreciate it that much more because it was made with your own two hands. Get ready for back-to-school beautiful fashion jewellery. This week we’re braiding a bracelet with hex nuts. Zinc is pretty standard, I have get to find any ‘gold’ looking ones yet, but you could always paint them with nail polish to add some colour if you so choose.
If you like what you see or you have suggestions for what you would like to see next, please feel free to leaver you comments or requests below. I would love to hear from you all.
DIY / How to Make a Zipper Wrap Bracelet
Pinterest Inspiration Source
I wanted to continue exploring a new art medium using bubbles and food colouring which I started last week (link below). This time I used much more, like ridiculously more food colouring for the project so it would not be so washed out and transparent. I hope you like it as much as I do, because it turned out fantastic.
If you have any requests, feedback or replies (written or video), please post them below. I would love to hear from all of you.
I you haven’t been watching my previous videos I have been inspired like crazy by the things I’ve found on Pinterest, so checkout my Handi Mandi TV Pinterest Page to see what I’ve pinned. If you like something you find, repin or let me know in the comment below if you want me to make a video on it.
So this week I’ve experimented with painting . . . using bubbles, yes, bubbles. It works best with food colouring, you can also use liquid watercolours. I stress liquid, because the paint won’t dissolve and it’s not enough colour saturation as it is with the food colouring. You may want to mix your own blend of bubble mix as it may not be ‘soapy’ enough depending on the brand you purchase. I’ll looking forward to exploring this medium more next week.
If you have any feedback or requests, I would LOVE to hear from you, so sound off in the comments below.
Here’s a time lapse of my latest painting with melted crayons, if you would like more time lapse videos please sound of your requests, or requests of any kind in the comments below.
