Last week I shared about my shopping experience with Consumer Crafts. I hadn’t shopped here before but I heard great things about this site. I got my goodies this week and I am excited to show you what I made with them!
Here is my unboxing video I shared on Instagram!
Right now, I am loving metallic and crisp white for my Christmas décor. Along with these colors I do like adding a bit of red and green as well. I did purchase quite a bit of paper mache items so I could make the Christmas vignette with my own colors. Consumer Crafts had a great amount of paper mache items and they were all on sale! Below are the projects I made with the items purchased from ConsumerCrafts.com.
Coffee Filter Christmas Tree
This is one of those crafts where I envisioned it going pretty quickly and easily but then, 5 hours passed. Phew! It turned out really cute but it was definitely time consuming.
- Paper Mache Cone/Tree
- Approx. 200-300 coffee filters
- Hot Glue Gun
Take the coffee filters and push out the middle, then turn the bottom end at least once. It will look like a fan and that is perfect. This is the most time consuming part of this project because you will use a couple hundred for a large tree. Do this on your downtime while watching a movie or listening to Christmas music!
Take the filter and place a dot of hot glue at the bottom of one side
Start at the bottom of the tree and start adhering the coffee filters.
Continue to fill the bottom then start making your way up. You’ll want to keep moving up the tree until you get to the top. Try to fill the holes as you move up. The great thing about this craft is you can fluff it, it doesn’t have to be perfect.
When you finish, you have a beautiful tree!
Yarn and Pom Pom Wreath
This wreath is very simple to do and probably only takes about an hour and a half.
- White Yarn
- Glittery Pom Poms
- Styrofoam Wreath
- Hot Glue Gun
Wrap your wreath in yarn all the way across. If you need to cut your yarn and start a new path, be sure to always hot glue on the backside of the wreath.
Once the wreath is wrapped, take the pom poms and glue them to the front.
Painted paper mache houses
I painted these with the gold and silver Décor Art paint. I then filled them with LED candles. I used this set from Consumer Crafts for less than $13!
NOEL Gold Paper Mache Letters
These paper mache letters were reasonably priced for only $1.97 each. I spray painted these letters in less than a minute. Talk about a SUPER easy craft! I then hot glued them on top of each other to spell NOEL.
