DIY Unicorn Hair Brush

Hey my Sunny Unicorns!

Can we not all agree Unicorns are like total amazeballs?! I know that I always loved the colorfulness, and fantastic thought of unicorns. Its a mystical kind of love. Takes me back to fourth grade when I had a Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper, filled with all my Lisa Frank folders and stickers with beautiful colorful pictures of mystical and exotic animals like tigers and unicorns. Ahh the memories! Nostalgic!

Anyways, now that we’ve took our walk down memory lane lets get back to our point shall we. UNICORNS! They are everywhere…Unicorns are super popular right now and I just LOVEEE Unicorns! So I thought I wanted to do something with a Unicorn twist. I seen some Unicorn makeup brushes that weren’t to expensive that inspired me, What about…a Unicorn HAIR BRUSH?! I know right, Its kinda weird and kinda awesome all in one! Although this is probably more a craft you would do for your kid or preteen, I am still a kid at heart and I can assure you, from the kid side of me, that they will LOVE IT!

Sooo, LETS DO THIS!

Directions:

  1. Get a Glitter Hair brush (or a plain hairbrush and glitter it yourself) and some air dry clay (polymer clay would also work)
  2. Eyeball how much clay it will take to make the size Unicorn horn you want…is it called a horn?
  3. Roll out your clay into a snake that gradually gets smaller.
  4. Start with the thick end of the snake and start to roll/spiral up to a horn shape.
  5. Let dry for 2-3 days.
  6. Once dry paint to your liking. I painted mine white and used some metallic gold paint to add a little detail to it.
  7. Crazy glue the horn in place on the top of your hairbrush, let dry, and you are done!

3 Easy DIY Valentines Day Gifts!

Hey Valentine! That is assuming you will be my Valentine?? <3.  Be Mine?!

Welcome back to Burst of Sunshine, where I randomly try to do something that brings some sunshine into my day, and hopefully yours as well. Today I am sharing with you 3 ideas for some DIY Valentines Day Gifts that you can gift to your girlfriend, boyfriend, wife, husband, best friend, mom or even yourself. The possibilites are endless!

Sooo, Lets Do this!

1. Love Tackle Box!

Things you will need:

  • Tackle Box
  • Assortment of fish related candy
  • Printable Tag! (Provided below)
  • Scotch tape & Scissors (for cutting and attaching the tag)

First off lets start with the first project which is this cute Love Tackle Box! This is for the fisherman in your life, or maybe even just a lover of puns! It is literally just a simple small tackle box which you can find at your local walmart for only about $2.88 filled with whatever candy your heart desires.  I tried to stick with the fishing theme and filled it with bobber colored airheads, a variety of gummy worms, sharks, and octopuses…octupi? Whatever the plural for octopus may be, I used gummy ones!

HOW TO DO IT: I just assembled the tackle box to have as many slots as I needed for my variety of candies (which you can personalize based on the candy your loved one likes). Then I filled the slots with the candy and closed up the box. Finally I just added a Fish shaped tag to the top of the Tackle Box which I have provided for you!

2. DIY Scratcher Lottery Tickets

Things you will need:

  • Printable Lottery Tickets (You can download below) printed on PHOTO PAPER or CARDSTOCK!
  • Dish Liquid
  • Silver Metallic Acrylic Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Bowl or Cup to mix in
  • White Crayon
  • Scissors (for cutting the tickets out)

This was a project I wasn’t sure was going to work, but after some test runs doing different techniques I found which worked best! All you need for this is a few items, one being, the lottery tickets which I have provided a copy of the ones I used. I even left some blank boxes in case you may be photoshop or graphic savvy and wanted to create your own personalized lottery tickets! (I made mine on Picmonkey FYI) You will need some Silver Metallic Acrylic paint, dish liquid, a bowl or cup to mix them in, a paint brush, scissors, and a white crayon! I tested some without the crayon and the scratcher definitely works sooo much better if you use the crayon on your scatchers first!

HOW TO DO IT: First I took my white crayon and I colored over all the places that will be scratch off. In the case of these specific lottery tickets, it’s all the hearts with words in them. One I completely colored my scratch areas with white crayon I started to create my paint mixture. I poured some silver paint into a small cup and added a drop or two of dish liquid. You want this mixture to be majority paint with just a tiny dab of dish liquid. To much dish liquid makes it too transparent and the wrong consistency. You still want it to be like regular paint. Next I just painted a thick coat of the paint mixture on my scratch off areas, which again is the hearts on this scratcher. I paint the scratch off part BEFORE cutting out the tickets because even though you are using photo paper, the paint will still try and cause the paper to curl up and wrinkle, and you don’t want that! So I weighted mine down with candles and bottles of paint and let it dry overnight. The reason we use photo paper or cardstock btw is because lottery tickets are usually more structured and thick, and regular printer paper would not be able to hold up with the paint/dish liquid mixture on it as well. Once the paint is completely dry, I cut out my lottery tickets and they are ready to go!!

PRINTABLE LOTTERY TICKETS:

3. Love Note Dessert Glass

Things you will need:

  • Glass Jar/Bowl
  • Dry Erase Markers

Finally the most simple project, is a love note glass. This is the easiest project you could do to show someone you care!

HOW TO DO IT: I simply just took a glass jar or bowl (I actually found this one in the vase section of the dollar tree). Then you just use dry erase markers to write your sweet message to your loved on. Then fill with dessert of choice and you are ready to serve! It is that simple! I do suggest however maybe using a white or vanilla dessert as it is kind of hard to see the message with chocolate ice cream like I used, but what can I say, we are chocolate people!
