Confetti Grace Original DIY Box January/February 2020 Review
With all the Christmas decor put away, my house is looking a bit bare. I couldn't wait to get this month's Confetti Grace box to spruce up my underwhelming January/February decor! This month we received all of the necessary supplies to create 2 wooden candle blocks, 2 greeting cards, and 2 gift bags. Because my boys were on an adventure with dad, I crafted all by myself this month. Check out how cute my projects turned out!
Every month, this box comes with an instruction sheet detailing the steps to create the included projects. I find the pictures most helpful, but if extra assistance is needed, their website is also very valuable.
We also received a Confetti Grace business card. This card has all the pertinent info you need to learn a bit more about this subscription. We also received a sweet little silver charm with a heart printed on it. I have a small collection of charms from this box, but this month I used this included one on my project and I love it!
Project #1: Wooden Candle Blocks
The first projects I created were these adorable wooden candle blocks. These blocks needed to be painted, so while I waited for my paint to dry, I continued onto my tags and greeting cards, which are featured below.
Wooden Candle Blocks
These solid wooden blocks are 6" long and 2 1/2" tall. They both feature 2 drilled indents for the included tealight candles.
Tacky Glue - Buy a 4 oz bottle for $1.99
We received a bottle of tacky glue to adhere the embellishments onto our wooden block. I love how they include all of the necessary supplies to complete these projects!
They also included a piece of sandpaper to smooth out the edges, and sides of the wooden block. I felt my blocks were just fine, so I skipped this step.
Foam Paint Brushes
I also love the fact that they include paintbrushes for these projects! So handy and easy!
Avery Disappearing Color Glue Stic (7.4 g) - Buy a set of 3 for $5.52
While I like that they included the glue stick, I wish they would have sent a tape runner instead. I feel the glue doesn't adhere that well to the card, so I really had to use a ton!
Apple Barrel Acrylic Paint in Lavender Sachet, White, and Pink Polish (2 oz each) - Retail Value $0.99 each
Like I have mentioned before, I love Apple Barrel acrylic paints! These paints are really fast drying- seriously like 15 minutes and you're good to go! Plus they clean up really well- so well in fact that I let my 4-year-old paint with them- that's right, I like to live on the edge...
In a separate baggie, we received a bunch of embellishments: glitter, wooden letters, paper shamrocks, and twine.
Battery Operated Tealight Candles
A wooden candle block just wouldn't be complete without some battery operated tealights now would they? These white candles feature a bright white, flickering flame that is turned on by a switch on the bottom of the candle. I must say, I really like how they look when they are on!
Onto the project we go! First I laid out my table protectant, and I poured some paint onto a paper plate for easy cleanup.
I then started painting away. I liked this project because you didn't have to paint the bottom of anything or wait for sides to dry. It only took me a couple of minutes to coat the entire thing.
Because I absolutely adore Valentine's Day, I decided to paint the entire block pink, and skip the shamrocks.
To really throw a wrench into things, I decided to go off the beaten path and paint one of the blocks red. This kit did not come with red paint, but I had the perfect spot in mind to put my finished product, so I opted for a color that I needed to supply.
While the wooden blocks were drying, I went ahead and painted the XOXO embellishments.
As soon as I finished painting the embellishments, I sprinkled the included glitter all over each of the letters. I just LOVE the sparkle!
After about 30 minutes my block was completely dry. The instructions showed a couple of different ways to decorate the block, but I liked the look of a double twine bow, so I went ahead and wrapped the twine around twice and tied it.
Because I was going for a particular look with my red block, I went ahead and added the twine, but didn't love the look of the XO on this block, so I skipped that and added the included charm. I am super happy with how it turned out!
Don't they look cute!? See why I needed red? I love the pop of color between the "LOVE" sign and the new addition! I do think the pink one turned out really cute too, and plan on giving it to my mom next week. Do you think she will like it?
Project #2: Greeting Cards
I love how they package their greeting cards. Everything is in one bag, and it is pretty much impossible to mess up! I did this craft while the paint was drying for my wooden candle blocks, and had a relaxing time coloring!
We received 2 different cards to color - I love this milk, cookies, mac and cheese one!
While I don't love avocados, and I won't probably give this card to anybody, it is a cute saying if you like avocado toast! (Usually they send a few different card sayings to choose from; I wish they did that this month!)
I love embellishing, so adding these little heart push pins was so much fun! It really added to the Valentine element we have going on!
Once my embellishments were attached and everything was colored, I glued the sheet to the included colored paper. After that was attached, I went ahead and glued it onto the white card. It was a very fast project, but turned out really cute! You can see a photo of all the completed projects below!
Project #3: Bags and Tags
This month's bag and tag project was super easy! All I had to do was insert the yarn into the hole of the heart and attach it to the handle of the bag. Simple and adorable!
Here are this month's completed projects. I think they turned out super cute, and can't wait to give the pink one to my mom!
Verdict: Confetti Grace is so much fun! I love having the opportunity to make really fun useful projects that can be given as gifts. I usually get to share this experience with one of my kids, but flying solo was a very relaxing experience as well. It's so great to open a box and be able to complete it from start to finish without tracking down additional supplies! Plus the directions are soooo easy to follow! I can't wait to see what is in store for March!
Confetti Grace costs $28.95 a month, so each gift package averages out to about $14.48. I feel this is a good value because they include everything to create 2 beautiful homemade gifts. This month's project was beautiful, and they will be enjoyed very much!
