Free Happy Birthday Coloring Page and Hershey

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Hershey Company. All opinions are 100% mine.

Birthdays are always special. I’ve always enjoyed celebrating my birthdays, but birthdays became even more special when I had my two daughters. I’m always looking for ways to make their birthday extra special. When inviting their friends over, I like to have different colors and themes for their birthdays. I also love to have goodies bags that coordinate with their birthday theme too. Secretly I always wished that the candy would be color coordinated too. Well, my wishes have been heard because now Hershey makes birthday planning and celebrating that much easier with their new birthday themed chocolates. They go with any super hero, princess, woodland or pretty much any themed party you decide to have. Just check out all this cuteness.

Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates come in a variety of colors. I’m in love with all of these. You can mix or match to create the cutest goody bag or use them as prizes for games at your next birthday party too. But, the fun doesn’t stop there!

Hershey also created a new type of Hershey’s Kisses for birthday celebrations. There’s now Hershey’s Kisses Birthday Cake candies. These are just adorable and they are wrapped in bright blue foil with polka dots. That’s my kinda of packaging. These made me so happy I had to include this picture…

And there’s more! This is my daughter’s favorite part. Hershey created birthday wands with Reese’s cups that make great party favors too!

freebirthdaycoloringpagewithhershey_artzy-creations2

Don’t forget your Hershey’s Assorted Miniatures and the Kit Kat® Miniatures too. They too, all come in bright colors for lots of birthday fun.

So, now you have lots of tasty and colorful options to jazz up your Birthday parties with Hersheys. To add to the celebration, I’ve also included a Free Happy Birthday Coloring page that I designed. Coloring pages are a hit with pretty much any age. With this coloring page, I designed it to go along with any birthday party theme. The coloring page also makes for a very hassle free kids activity that requires very minimum clean up. As you can see, I also made it pretty detailed for the older kids who really like to spend more time coloring. I think this coloring page goes perfect with the Birthday party themed candy from Hershey, and all I ask is that it is used for personal use only.

So, where do you grab all of this cuteness? You can get all of the fun and brightly colored Hershey Birthday candy at your local Walmart store. You can find it in the celebration isles. This makes planning and organizing that birthday celebration so much easier. You really can be done in a matter of minutes. So, don’t let a time crunch or lack of colorful options be the factor that keeps you from having the perfect color coordinated party favors at your special someone’s next birthday celebration.

Decorating With UncommonGoods

uncommongoods-artzycreations

This post is sponsored by UncommonGoods.  However, all of the opinions in this post are 100% my own.

I don’t know about you, but when it comes to decorating, I’m always looking for well designed unique pieces to decorate my home. Definitely not your run of the mill pieces that you see in every store.   Being an artist, I love having variety and statement pieces that aren’t from your typical house ware store that is just down the street.  Recently, I was introduced to UncommonGoods and immediately fell in love with all of their products.

uncommongoods-artzycreations1

UncommonGoods has a variety of home decor items. Everything from vases, night lights, storage containers, to pillows and more.  If you’re looking for a unique wedding gift, this is a great place to shop too.

I also love the fact that they support local artisans, as well as, community artisans in low income areas.  UncommonGoods goal as a business, is to build a community of artisans and support their work by featuring their products for sale on their website and catalogue.  The  Handmade Herringbone Knitting Basket above is by the artist Leslie Mittleburg.  She works with African communities across the continent to educate and improve their living conditions and also to help create independence for  rural African communities.  This is an amazing cause, and I love the fact that I can help support the efforts of this artisan.  Not too mention that the craftsmanship of the basket is absolutely gorgeous and this is a piece I will continue to have for a very long time.

uncommongoods-artzycreations2This DIY Succulent Living Wall Planter is a fun and unique gift for just about anyone.   If you know someone that has a green thumb they will absolutely love this as a gift.  This DIY kit is designed by artist Heather Autcher from California.  In the product, you receive your hand built planter box and baby succulents. When they arrive you plant the succulents yourself and watch them as they grow and fill in the succulent planter box.

My favorite addition to the room is this Sari Floral Rug that has been created from recycled  saris in India.  I not only love the durability of this rug, but I absolutely love the fun and bright colors. They add the perfect pop of color to our room.

So, if you’re looking for just the perfect house warming gift or need a great statement piece for your own home, I highly suggest that you head on over to Uncommongoods for the piece that you’re looking for.  You will not only get a great product, but you will helping to support artisans and the communities they live in too.

Simple Pom Pom Tassel

Here’s a very easy DIY tutorial for a Simple Pom Pom Tassel.

Pom_Pom_Tassel_Artzy Creations 1Tassels and Pom Poms are the latest in fashion right now.  I love both of them and the whole Bohemian look.  So, I was inspired to create a Simple Pom Pom Tassel with these beautiful brass breads from Happy Mango Beads.  You’ll Love how this project comes together in no time and how easily you can personalize it to match any of your tote bags or purses.

Supplies Needed:

  • 6mm Round Brass Beads
  • Large Pom Pom Maker
  • Two Colors of Acrylic Yarn
  • Scissors
  • Piece of Cardboard Roughly Three Inches
  • Large Needle
  • Pencil
  • 3 Small Pom Poms

Pom_Pom_Tassel_Artzy Creations 2

Step 1:  These are the Pom Pom Makers that I have found to work the best when making pom poms.  They turn out nice and full and are pretty fail proof.  You can customize your tassel depending on what size you would like.  For my tassel, I used the largest pom pom maker.  Follow the instructions using two different colors.  When tying off the pom pom, leave at least 6″ of yarn.  This will be used for attaching the tassel to your bag.

Pom_Pom_Tassel_Artzy Creations 3

Step 2:  Cut a piece of cardboard roughly 3″.  Wrap the yarn around the cardboard numerous times.  Make sure it has been wrapped enough so that the tassel will be nice and thick.

Pom_Pom_Tassel_Artzy Creations 4Step 3:  Slide the yarn off of the cardboard and onto a pencil.  Once on the pencil, use a separate piece of string to wrap the tassel several times and tie a knot as shown above.  Trim the bottom of the tassel using scissors.

Pom_Pom_Tassel_Artzy Creations 5

Step 4: Using a needle, thread a piece of yarn up through the top of the needle to thread the beads and pom poms.

Pom_Pom_Tassel_Artzy Creations 6

Step 5:  Keeping the needle on, thread the brass beads and pom poms.  After threading all of the beads and pom poms, thread this up through the pom pom and tie it tight ( into the pom pom).  Take three strands of the remaining thread and braid it.  Braid this thread long enough to make a loop that will be used to loop the tassel onto the bag.

So simple and easy.  Enjoy making these fun and Simple Pom Pom Tassels.  You’ll want one for all of your tote bags and purses.

 

DIY Tassel Necklace

 Here’s a fun and easy tutorial for a DIY Tassel Necklace that just takes minutes to make.

DIY_Tassel_Necklace_Artzy Creations 5

Are you loving all of the Tassel Necklaces like I am?  I love anything with pom poms and tassels and these are just too cute to resist.  However, some of these necklaces come with a hefty price tag.  This necklace is easy and simple to make and the best part is…it won’t break the bank.

I’ve also included my little secret to stringing on the beads that have those tiny little holes in them so you can use in them in a variety of necklaces.

Supplies Needed:

Step 1 :  The DIY Tassel Necklace is roughly 32″ in length not including the tassel.  When the tassel is added, the additional length is just perfect and will hit at the right spot.  Begin by cutting a piece of DMC floss that is 40 to 42″ in length.  It’s nice to have too much DMC floss instead of too little with stringing the beads because you will need to tie this necklace off and don’t want the DMC floss to be too short.

DIY_Tassel_Necklace_Artzy Creations 1

Step 2: String the DMC floss with the flexible beading wire.  This will allow you to be able to string the beautiful amazonite beads onto the DMC floss or any other type of gemstone you may want to use.

Step 3:  String several of the amazonite beads followed by the bone beads.  You will end with the amazonite beads.

DIY_Tassel_Necklace_Artzy Creations 2

Step 4:  Add the tassel. Tie the end of the DMC floss a couple of times.  I also use Super Glue to adhere the ends to make sure the necklace will not come apart.

DIY_Tassel_Necklace_Artzy Creations 4

Step 5:  I wanted to add a little charm to the tassel to fancy it up a bit.  This is completely optional.  To add the charm, open oup the 3mm jump ring and slide through the top of the tassel.  Slip the charm on and close the jump ring using needle nose pliers.

DIY_Tassel_Necklace_Artzy Creations 6

There you have it!  A fun and simple DIY Tassel Necklace that you can create in minutes.  You can even watch t.v. while your making it.  So, have fun creating and personalizing your own DIY Tassel Necklace to your color choice.

 

Free Printable Christmas Door Hangers For Kids


Free-Printable-Christmas-Door-Hanger-For-Kids-Artzy Creations a
Can you believe Christmas is just right around the corner?  I know I can’t hardly believe it  myself.  Well, with the holidays coming up, it’s the time of year to keep the kiddos busy with lots of fun activities.  To keep my daughters busy, I  like to have lots of coloring sheets and construction paper around to encourage lots of creativity.  Being an art teacher, there certainly isn’t a shortage of that in our house, but this year, I wanted to create some fun Christmas Coloring Door Hangers that the kids could personalize themselves.  I took a poll in our house to see what my daughters wanted the most for a door hanger. Well, wouldn’t you know it, Santa was on top for sure followed closely by Rudolph and Frosty.  Since Santa and Rudolph were pretty much a tie, I designed a door hanger for each.

Free-Printable-Christmas-Door-Hanger-For-Kids-Artzy Creations 2

I printed these out  on a card stock paper and they turned out perfectly using my ink jet printer.  The card stock makes it nice too because it will withstand some wear and tear over the holidays.

You can use crayons, colored pencils, or markers to color these in.  Your kids will enjoy coloring this fun holiday activity and it should keep them busy for a bit too… especially if you happened to be house bound due to snow!!!

I hope you and your kids have lots of fun with the door hanger printables.  Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.  See you in 2016!

Free Winter Coloring Page

Are you looking for a way to spend a little relaxing down time with a cup of coffee or tea? Download my latest Free Winter Coloring Page.

Free-Winter-Coloring-Page-Artzy Creations 2

I’m sure you’ve noticed lately with all of the free coloring pages that I’m hooked on not only creating coloring pages, but coloring them as well.  Ever since high school, I have always had a passion for art and coloring.  O.k. even before then.  But, I really didn’t take it seriously until I was in high school.  Prior to High School, I used whatever type of art supply I could get my hands on.  The quality didn’t matter at the time because I didn’t know any better.  Well, that all changed when my High School art teacher,  introduced me to Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils.  If you haven’t tried Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils or Premier Markers, you’re in for a real treat.    The difference between Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils and any other old ordinary colored pencil are simply night and day.  Once you try coloring with a Prismacolor  Premier Colored Pencil… it’s just like butter!  I mean when it comes to the smoothness of the pencil moving across the paper, there’s nothing out there that even compares.  The  high quality of the Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils really  allow me to achieve a lot of depth, even in my simple coloring pages.

Free-Winter-Coloring-Page-Artzy Creations 3

Prismacolor colored pencils also come in a HUGE variety of colors too.  I just stocked up on some more Prismacolor  Primier Colored Pencils at Michaels the other day. (There’s never too many colored pencils in my house, just ask my daughters).  Both of my  daughter’s love to use them too,  because even at their young ages, they both notice the difference in  the vibrancy and how much easier they are to use when coloring.

If you haven’t tried a coloring page yet or you’re like myself and really hadn’t done any coloring/drawing since high school, download my Winter Coloring Page , and give it a try…

Just like my cup of hot chocolate says, you might just find yourself in…

Free-Winter-Coloring-Page-Artzy Creations 7

Well, with Winter here and the snow and cold weather in full effect,  most Moms are looking for different ways to keep their kids occupied while they are indoors. As an art teacher to kids of ALL ages, I can speak first hand to how a new box of Prismacolor colored pencils and a few good coloring pages can really brighten up a cold and dreary day.

Free-Winter-Coloring-Page-Artzy Creations 8

 If you have a young budding artist and are looking for the perfect gift, Why not give them something that they will be “Ticked Pink” over 🙂 and while you’re at it, be sure to check out Michaels coupons for additional savings, in newspapers & online!  Once you get  your new colored pencils, and you’re looking for additional free coloring pages, the Michaels website has quite a few to choose from. Click here and select “free pages” to download more free coloring pages. Then let Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils help…

Wood Slice Snowmen Ornaments

  Check out this really easy tutorial for Wood Slice Snowmen Ornaments.

Wood-Slice-Snowman-Ornaments-Artzy Creations 4a

I love all things snowmen related.  I just have a thing for them and think they’re the cutest.  Like the old Campbell’s soup commerical where the snowman comes in to have a bowl of soup and he thaws out and melts into a little boy.  Love it!  I was at Target the other day and spotted some wood slice tags in the Dollar Spot at Target and knew these would make for the cutest ornaments. The best part is… I created all 6 of these ornaments for just a dollar.  I already had the paint and ribbon.  But, you wouldn’t have to buy any ribbon, the package of tags already comes with twine.  These also come together in no time and make the perfect homemeade gift to attach to a present, wine bottle, card, etc.

Supplies Needed:

  • Wood Slice Tag From Dollar Spot
  • White, Black, and Orange Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Ribbon

Wood-Slice-Snowman-Ornaments-Artzy Creations 2

These are the great wood slice tags that I found in the Dollar Spot bins at Target.  It’s such a bargain to get six of these for $1.  I just had to snatch them up.  I think I will have to go back for more.

Wood-Slice-Snowman-Ornaments-Artzy Creations 6

Step 1:  Use white paint to paint the front and backs of the wood slices.  I used chalk paint for this.  I found that it covers things a lot better and wanted to cover up the dark chalkboard circle on the one side.  The chalk paint worked perfectly for this.

Wood-Slice-Snowman-Ornaments-Artzy Creations 3

Step 2:  Use a fine paint brush and paint the nose and eyes onto the slices.  Let them dry.  You can seal these with a matte spray paint or leave as is.

Step 3:  Use the twine that is provided for you or use your own ribbon to make a loop to hang the snowmen by.

Wood-Slice-Snowman-Ornaments-Artzy Creations 5a

Wood-Slice-Snowman-Ornaments-Artzy Creations 1a

Enjoy making these cute little snowmen.  They’re just adorable and so easy.  Now, I’m off to Target to pick up more of the tags.  I hope they still have them.
