I have always wanted to be a plant person. But, sadly, after many plants whithered away under my care, I assumed I was not a plant person. Then a sweet friend gifted me a Spider Plant. It grew and thrived and made me so stinkin' happy!  That is, until it started having babies. Next thing you know, I've got pots and pots of spider plants! And while I love them, I just can't maintain this many plants. Some new babies were not going to be able to stay. But I just couldn't throw them away.  So I got an idea... I pulled all of the yogurt containers and other plastic containers fro ..read more

Hey, y'all! Last week I shared that I created this Skull Planter. While at the same time I was makin' that mess, I also created this cutie! I finally got around to painting it and thought I'd share the process with you. If you are looking for the supplies I used, mainly, Celluclay, you can find it here.  Okay, now for the process! Now I don't plan on keeping him out all year like my skull planter so...I did just drop a plant inside that was already in a smaller planter. That way, when the season is sadly over, I can just take it out. However...I love his happy face so much that I ..read more

I spotted the coolest planter ever the other night at Cracker Barrel: it was a large plastic skull planter and I just had to have it! Until I saw the $40 price tag.

You can check out all of those creations (well, most of them anyway), here.  Here's the how-to video! The process is super easy! All you need is Celluclay and a plastic planter...and acrylic paint. That's it! Oh...and maybe a cute little plant. This is one I scored at Walmart years ago on s ..read more

I was scrolling through the interwebs as one is inclined to do and stumbled upon this amazing work of art by Damien Hirst: I loved it so much I was immediately inspired to create a lesson based on it! So I created a How-to-Draw-a-Skull video for you and your students. I've been seeing so many art teacher do the paint-squeegee method that, when I saw this work of art, I thought it would be the perfect inspiration. So! If you are interested, here's the kid-friendly video I created for you and your students! I hope you find the video helpful and fun! I tried several paint pull methods. I ..read more

Hey, y'all!  I'm all about the Halloween projects lately and I came up with one that I know your students will love! I mean...I loved making it so even if you just need a fun little weekend craft to unwind, you may want to try this one on for size.  You can find the supplies for this right here. But really...it's just foil sheets, plaster wrap and acrylic paint. Sticks, felt and pipe cleaners are things the average art teacher has in surplus so...you can add that to your shopping list if necessary. But if you are anything like me, those types of supplies seem to multiply in y ..read more
