Simple Block Wall Art

Have you ever heard of Block wall Art? Its simple and colorful way of decorating your living room wall. Mix and match colors that enhances your living room, that is all you have to do.

Lets start with the supplies needed
  • Cardboard piece 
  • Colors of your choice
  • Paint brush
  • Cello-tape
  • Marker
  • Ruler
  • Scissors

Take cardboard piece of any shape and size yo wish and paint it with white color. Keep it aside for sometime for drying. Once its completely dried, mark out the vertices of the design you have decided with.
As I m not an expert in painting, I had stuck cello-tape along the lines joining the vertices marked as shown in below image. (Tip: Once we are done with painting, cello-tape should be removed. This way the shape of colored blocks will be perfect)

Yipee!! Now its time to paint. Wake up the kid in you and play with colors ;) Paint blocks one by one as below. (Tip: Try to use bright colors)

Don't get panic seeing the edges. Once you remove cello-tape, it will be a perfect straight edge. This is how it looks once you have completed painting all blocks.

Now, slowly remove cello-tape as shown below.

 Tada!! Your block wall art is ready. Isn't it so simple??

Thank you for dropping by. Hope you have enjoyed reading this post. Have a nice day:)

Sand Art Gel wax candle

Hello guys. Hope you are all doing great. It's been a long time I had posted something. Here, I come with simple yet elegant sand art gel wax candle. Making gel wax candle with colorful sand base gives a graceful look to the candle when it's lit.

Let's check out the procedure of making it. Here are the supplies needed.
  • Color sand
  • Gel wax
  • Candle wick and thread
  • Glass tumbler

Bend the tumbler a little and pour sand of different colors one after the other along walls of the glass tumbler as shown in below picture. Choose colors alternatively so it doesn't match colors adjacent and beneath it. This gives wavy look. Final look after filling in above said pattern with different colors sand is as shown in picture at bottom right corner.

You can also let your creativity play its role while playing with sand to form different designs.

Now take a thin stick and slide it down along the wall of tumbler to leave a pattern as below. (This is optional process)

It's time to insert candle wick and thread. Place the candle wick and thread at center of tumbler and insert it little in to the sand.

Melt gel wax using double boiling technique so that it wouldn't burn. Once the gel wax is melted properly, pour it in glass tumbler carefully.

Held the candle wick firmly with the help of stick like structure until gel wax cools down. Once the wax cools down, leaving a half inch cut extra part of candle wick as shown below.

Yipee, now your Gel Wax candle is ready!!
