Hey everyone! The beginning of school is around the corner and for some already started this past week. Today I am going to tell you about two back to school crafts “A” and I made. They were both super easy to do!
The first thing we made was a chalkboard notebook. For this project you will need: a notebook, paintbrushes and chalkboard paint. “A” and I used chalkboard paint we bought from Michaels, in the color Onyx. To create this notebook you will paint 2 to 3 coats of paint on the notebook cover. In between each coat you should wait 2 hours before painting the next layer. For best results add a clear protective coat to the cover. Another tip for the best possible results is to allow the notebook to dry completely for 24 hours before writing on it with chalk.
The second project is a lava pen. For this project you need: glitter, oil, water, a ballpoint pen, a hot glue gun, and a dropper. The first step is to take the pen out. After that, use the hot glue gun to glue the top of the pen lid and the bottom of both the inner and outer pen. Next use the dropper to add oil and water into the pen. The last step is to add glitter and put the pen back in. This project took a total of 5 minutes and it was such a huge hit with “A”.
These were such fun projects to do! Have you done any back to school crafts? Let me know in the comments below!
