I hope you’re enjoying this week of guest posts from amazing bloggers. Today one of my favorites is here!
Hi! I’m Carolina from 30 Minute Crafts, and I’m excited to share with you one of my favorite crafts today! I love fast crafting, and I share all kinds of fun, quick crafts that can be done in 30 minutes or less! You’d be amazed at how easy it is to create fun projects in a half hour, and with just a few simple supplies. And not just kiddie projects or cheap looking stuff, either. I made a glass jar rose that would look great as a wedding or bridal party centerpiece, and a Washi Tape Neckace that turns a stylish craft supply into an accessory. I also do projects you can make for or with your kids, like this super-fast felt cowboy vest. Today I thought I’d share a quick trophy that you can make with a few supplies from the hardware store and a toy from a fast food kid’s meal.
Here’s what you’ll need to make your trophy:
- Toy from a fast-food kid’s meal (washed and dried)
- Martha Stewart Gilding (found at Michael’s – this one is in gold)
- molding piece from the hardware store (comes pre-painted, yeah!)
- large washer that fits into the curve of the molding piece
- E6000 glue to hold it together
- a soft-bristle paintbrush you’re willing to throw away after the project is done
You really will want to throw away the paint brush after you’ve painted the trophy – the gilding is not kind to the paintbrushes, and you’d need paint thinner to get it out. If you have paint thinner handy, then you’ll probably be ok – but it is easier to pick a paintbrush that is already past its prime, and just toss it when you are done. Go grab your supplies, then head over to the full “How to make a Trophy from a Child’s Toy” tutorial at 30 Minute Crafts to learn how to put it all together!
OK, I am sorry, but this is just THE cutest idea ever!
