Last Sunday my husband and I had some time alone around the house and so we did what we usually do without kids in the house. He went his way and I went mine, I swear we love each other…truly! While he sanded, prepped, and admired the lovely piece of furniture you see below (look for upcoming before and after) I put together the, ahem, craft you see above. I call it a bubble tin, and while it may illicit a number of pornographic nicknames it provided me a chance to play and get creative on a whim, which is something I don’t allow myself to do enough!
- mini plastic eggs
- small tin
- spray paint preferably one for plastic
- glue gun
I feel like this craft doesn’t really need instructions but just in case.
Separate your plastic eggs into two pieces and hot glue to the tin in a pattern of your choosing.
Spray paint the entire creation. We went with black ‘cause that was all we had and I’m so impatient I couldn’t wait. We used Krylon Fusion for Plastic.
I know it looks funny, but it is fun! The kids loved it and rattled off a number of different ideas including turning it into a multi-eyed monster! Why did I paint it black again? Oh, well! I added more eggs to the lid and it now resides in my oldest son’s room where it blends in with the rest of his dark belongings.
I hope you enjoyed this crafty idea, please take a moment to visit the Linky Party Page to see where I like to share stories like this one!
