No Sew Barbie Mermaid Tail

Turn an old kid’s sock into a Barbie mermaid tail without ever picking up a needle and thread.

My daughter just received her first Barbie for her birthday, as well as an Elsa and Anna doll. She loves playing with them, but hates that they only have one outfit. I told her that when I was a little girl, I used to make my own Barbie clothes out of socks, so of course she wanted to do this. While sliding one of her dolls into a tube sock to show her, she told me that it looked like a Barbie mermaid tail. Light bulb! We found our first project.

Bleeding tissue paper painting is a fun alternative to traditional painting. These bleeding tissue paper shamrocks are a fun and easy St. Patrick’s Day art idea.

Bleeding tissue paper is one of our favorites ways to paint. It is fun. It is messy and it produces very cool results. We have made a few bleeding tissue projects for Christmas and then Valentine’s Day. With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, we had to make one for St. Paddy’s, as well. I love these bleeding tissue paper shamrocks because they are so simple.

We just replaced our last set of toothbrushes.  I was about to throw them out when I thought that we could use them for something fun.

Since we’re on a rainbow kick right now, we decided to paint a rainbow with our toothbrushes.

This pretty watercolor technique is perfect for the spring or summer.

In our house, we love to work with watercolors. We like to make our own because we go through them so quickly. We have made solid watercolorswhich we love to use, but most of all, we just water down acrylic paints or mix food coloring with water. It just so happens that we did both of these things this past week and had quite a bit of both leftover to create these gorgeous watercolor dipped flowers. Watercolor dipped flower art.
