Puffy Paint Recipe

3 Oct

This will probably be the shortest post ever from Club Creative Studio.  In today’s TNT (This-N-That) post, I want to share a creative recipe for “puffy paint”.  The ingredients are from the kitchen. Before you gather your mixing supplies, take some time to also recycle and collect the containers you wish to place your “paint” in.

Take time to clean out your recycled containers for this project.

Any recycled plastic bottle that is also a squeeze-type container will work the best. Those plastics from items like emptied shampoo, dish soap, syrup, ketchup. mustard, honey, salad dressings and oil containers, will work fine, for example.  Take note of the variety of lid tips because this mixture will be thick yet you want it to flow easily out of the tip of the container you place the paint in.

Try it for a fun, different and inexpensive project.  It may be exactly what you are looking for in price, texture and technique.

Here is an example of how you can focus this technique on a fall decorative creation.

Try a simple, yet striking design like Elsie Larson’s idea from the site Beautiful Mess blog or a more complex design.

Puffy Paint Recipe:

1 Cup Salt

1 Cup Flour

1 Cup Water

Food Coloring

Mix well, you really don’t want large lumps to form and you want it to flow out of your container tip. Have fun creating with this low-cost activity.


Dog Gone Cute

29 Oct


Club Creative Studio can’t resist the opportunity to share the creativity that is around you via your family pet the dog. Admit it- these dogs are dog gone cute! Because we are wrapping up the month October, let’s focus on the Halloween costumes of pets! Why not?  Why not is the real question.  Why not place outrageous outfits on our pets, make them stand still for a photo and then laugh at them?  Why not assign them a personality that we think they should have?  Why not use our precious time to create a look with our pet that is in our likeness or just plain fun?

Enjoy these fun, funny, fantastic, furry friends!

Home Sweet Home

26 Oct


Be inspired by ideas to make your own sweet treat.

Club Creative Studio shares the creative visions from the studio and of others and brings those ideas into your home.  Here are a few sweet ideas for you to make your HOME a sweet home.  Let’s call it your “Home Sweet Home”! And let’s look at the initial steps that can inspire you to add the colorful details.

During holiday seasons creativity is all around us.  Holiday celebrations are an active time where creativity is abound because most times children and parties are involved.  It is not unlikely that some creative ideas mesh in theme from celebration to celebration. I already blogged about a “Halloween Tree” project which has many similarities of decorating for a “Christmas Tree”.  Visit blog post entitled: Beautiful Branches.

Stressed spelled backwards is desserts.  Coincidence?  I think not!  ~Author Unknown

This time in this post, take note of a few photos that I found that incorporate similar matching themes of the popular “GingerBread House” and “Gingerbread Cookies”.

We may typically know these items as popular during December for Christmas celebrations However, here you may have the idea to creat a Halloween Gingerbread House or  Skelton Ginger Bread Cookies.

If you try these ideas you can also look at it as a trial run and practice making the house and cookies for later adaption.  Your December treats can be inspired by what you do creatively in October.

This edible Halloween house contains a variety of cookies, candies, toppings, pretzels, and crackers attached with frosting.

Think creatively when you purchase your candy and snack supplies. Try to imagine what treat can be used separately to represent another item.  For example: a square cracker can easily be used as a window because of the typical shape.  Try to imagine cutting or using a candy to represent something similar in nature.  Coconut makes great grass when it is dyed green.  Dirt can resemble crushed chocolate cookie crumbs.

Creative Carvings = Halloween Fun

25 Oct

Club Creative Studio recognizes creativity on many levels.  Because we are in the month of October and the theme around me is focused on Halloween almost everywhere I turn, I would like to highlight the decorative element: the seasonal pumpkin.  Read on and admire my favorite finds of creative designs using the carved pumpkin.

I love the expression and creativity of each of these samples.

Beautiful Branches

25 Oct

Club Creative Studio’s blog post continues to offer information that is creative in nature.  A decorated black tree branch can be a great statement piece when decorating for Halloween.  When decorated with an assortment of spooky ornaments, you have created an original center piece or focal decorative art for the holiday.

There are as many different types of black trees with choices ranging from Christmas style trees, vintage-style feather trees, and tinsel trees. This post is about how you can create a “make-it-yourself” tree from a lost limb tree branch from outdoors.  Consider creating a spooky tree made strictly for your Halloween decorating.

This post deals with the creative efforts from a television show called: Creative Juice.  Here the hosts will explain the details and options on how to create a Halloween Tree.  This is a project that can be done as a group project, because many individual items can be added to the over-all creation.  A Halloween Tree is a decorative embellishment to be used indoors or outdoors.  It can certainly show personality and be made to fit a theme.  Wouldn’t this be a great gift to take to a costume party?  It could also become a family tradition to make and display a Halloween Tree together as a family activity.  Good luck being creative with this idea.  Maybe it will spark you to gather classroom children, neighbors, casual girl friends, party attendees or club members to celebrate creative energy together to produce a visual display.  We have all heard of a Christmas Tree which is another item that many use as a decorative element in their homes.  This is the same concept. Decorative and delightful.
