Heart Family Tree and Arrow

I received this box of testors stuff as part of a testers challenge from creators studio. They sent me purple and pink Testors enamel paint, red and white paint acrylic paint, 3 pack of paint brushes, small sponge sticks, pink spray paint, red glitter spray paint, silver glitter spray paint, plastic cement glue, black enamel paint marker, and some small wood hearts. They wanted us to use the wood hearts and the items to create something. This post contains affiliate links please see my

How to Make The Heart Family Tree

I started with the wood hearts I painted the two large ones with the pink enamel paint. This type of paint soaks into the wood more like a stain than a paint.

Then I painted the small ones with the purple enamel paint.

I had never used enamel paint before and soon realized you can’t just get the paint off the brush with water. You need to use an acetone or nail polish remover to get the paint off.  It also has a stronger smell than most paints. So I suggest you don’t use it around kids and use it in a well-ventilated area.

Once the hearts dried I added my family members names on the hearts using the enamel marker.

The next thing I did was draw an outline of a tree not the best tree outline 🙂

Next, I took the red paint and the eraser end of a pencil and filled in the tree with red dots.

I added a heart to the tree trunk using the enamel marker.

Once the red paint was dry I took the hearts and glued them to the page. I added some bakers twine around the tree to the hearts.

Then spray painted the thrift store frame with the hot pink spray paint and then I sprayed it with the silver glitter spray paint.

Last I added the tree into the frame.

How To Make the Arrow Heart (super simple)

I used the bigger heart and painted it with the red acrylic paint then added the white acrylic paint dots using the mini sponges.

Then I used a valentines pencil and tied on black and white poke dot tulle and red tulle to the end with the eraser.

After that I cut out red felt fabric in the shape of the heart.

Then I hot glued the pencil and the wood heart on it to get the finished look.

It was great getting to use different products I have never used before. Besides never using enamel paint, black enamel marker, the small sponges, or the plastic cement. I Didn’t end up use the cement for this project but I would like to find something in the future I could use it on.

Sometimes going outside of the box is what we need to find and create new and exciting things.

Haunted House Playhouse

My little boys always loved playing in my inlaws play house. I had on and off searched for used playhouses and could never seem to find one for cheap. So my cousin moved into a house and wanted to get rid of a pink and purple one. I had hesitated at first then did some Pinterest searching and realized we could spray paint it. He gave us the playhouse for free which was amazing 🙂 After doing a search I found this haunted house playhouse and it was exactly like the house we got. So asked my boys what color they would like to paint it they decided on green and black. Then the idea turned into the haunted house playhouse we made.

Power Wash

We borrowed my in-law’s power washer to get all the spiders and gunk. I tried with a hose at first and the gunk wouldn’t move at all. After we power washed it, we then took the house apart. When taking the house apart there were a few screws we had to remove then we could pull off the top. Once you have the top off you can turn the bottom over and slid the pieces apart.

Spray Paint

I used 2 and a half cans of Rust-Oleum black spray paint and 2 cans of rust-oleum lime green. We painted the top of the house black including the inside because what boy wants pink showing. Then we painted the outside seats, inside seat, lights, and umbrella cover lime green.  With it all apart on our grass it was easy to spray paint. You do have to tape off the lights so you can put the green spray paint in it later. I let it dry overnight before putting it back togeather.
