Kids name plate idea using an uncolored coloring page for the background, foam letters, decoupage, card board - StowandTellU.com

Coloring Page Name Plate for Kids

This is an idea craft that was born from the twig name plate I made for my nephew.  I was originally going to use a coloring page as the background for the twig name, but found that the twig name didn’t stand out like it did on glass. I had some colorful foam letters that […]

Weathered Old Newspaper Lamp Shade

I usually keep a stack of old newspaper around because it always comes in handy for wrapping items for storage or shipping, and it works well as a small drop cloth for craft projects.   Back in the day (as in before the internet) I kept news paper around for other reasons, as in the […]

Vintage Bottle Cap Paper Decoupage Tin Cans

I bought some vintage looking scrapbook paper a while back because I thought the design was a make up of vintage soda bottle caps.  When I pulled it out to use it, I looked more closely and realized it was actually vintage milk bottle caps.  Oh?  Well that’s okay too, either way I liked the […]

Vintage Bathing Beauties Beach Tray

Summertime… and the livin’ is eeeeaaasssyyyahhh!!  I remember my mother singing that song when I was a kid and rolling my eyes.  One, because she was an adult letting loose (not permitted)  and two, because she was my mother.  Both good reasons for a teenage girl to want to run and hide because she was […]

Delicate Little Decoupaged Camping Tray

Campfires, roasted marshmallows, boat rides, fishing off the pier, even a hike perhaps.  Those were a few of the images I was conjuring up for what was to come this past weekend when we headed off to visit our friends, Rich and Jamie, at their lakeside summer camping home.  Although, I almost didn’t go. “I’ve […]

Decoupaged Camping Lamp

I picked up one of those battery powered plastic camping lamps at a yard sale for $3.  It didn’t come with the 6 volt battery, but we happened to have one of those at home in our battery stash.  Not sure if either the battery or the camping lamp would actually work, I put the […]

Speckled Egg Textured Decoupage Mason Jars

In my quest to find to perfect faux speckled egg texture, I have reached another threshold of speckled egg texture bliss.  I won’t call this perfection, no siree, but I tried a little something different from the splatter paint texture technique of last year.   After making the paint dipped soup cans a few months ago, […]

Souvenir Bag Shoe Box Storage

My son went to Nashville and all he got me was a coffee mug!! Sure, I love my coffee, so the mug does come in handy, thank you.  But, in all honesty, I actually got a little more attached to the fancy bags he brought the souvenirs home in. Not the plastic kind, but the […]

Plastic Soda Bottle Puggy Bank

I wish I had a pet pig or a pet pug.  They’re both so cute,  and I’ve heard they both make great pets.  Nevertheless, I have neither, although I do have a cat…but this post is about making a puggy bank.  No, you didn’t hear it wrong.  I said puggy, not piggy.  Using the bottom […]
