Miniature Flamingo Garden For Summer



Molly created this Flamingo garden with some of our new wood items. The wood house was painted pink, then scrapbook papers were added after the paint dried. She painted the chair white, then painted the stool with a flamingo coral color and added scrapbook paper to the top. Next she poured decorator sand into a tray, added the decorated wood pieces, some flamingos, shells and fake plants for a beach inspired look.
Now we can dream of summer while we wait out the Spring rains.

World Art Day

Celebrate World Art Day with creative activities - painting, sketching, lettering...


"Art is never finished, only abandoned." - Leonardo da Vinci

World Art Day is an international celebration of the fine arts which was declared by the International Association of Art (IAA) in order to promote awareness of creative activity worldwide. April 15th, the birthday of Leonardo da Vinci, was chosen for the official day because he was a visionary in the world of arts.

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” – Pablo Picasso

Looking for a fresh new home decor piece this Spring? Create a moss planter and add a new plant to it. All you need is an unfinished wood planter, some moss, log pieces and a glue gun. All of these supplies are available at our Bonney Lake Ben Franklin Crafts. Glue the moss in place with a hot glue gun and then glue the log pieces to the top rim. It's that easy!
