Confetti Grace Original DIY Box March/April 2020 Review
With basically all of our state shut down right now, I was so excited to see my Confetti Grace box this month! Spring is just around the corner, and I am looking for everything positive right now! This month we received all of the necessary supplies to create 2 spring decor projects, 2 greeting cards, and 2 gift bags. Let's get started!
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 and YouTube channel are also very helpful. This month didn't show a full view of the finished projects, so the end results were a little bit of a surprise!
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. It's awesome to see that they donate 20% of their net profits to charity. Right now, they are donating to World Vision!
Project #1: Spring Decor
The first projects I created were these charming tobacco basket crafts. I really enjoyed the fact that they sent so many embellishments to decorate with! I was really able to customize these and make them my own. Check out below for photos of how they turned out!
The basis of our craft this month are these 6" X 6" tobacco baskets. While they come in a lovely distressed wood tone, we received white paint in case we wanted to do some whitewashing. The baskets seem to be pretty well made, and give off a rustic charm when complete!
In this sweet little envelope, we received an array of plastic floral stems in various colors. I love that we received an assortment, as it really let me customize my crafts to my liking. Because some of these stems were so tall, I trimmed them to fit.
I LOVE craft supplies, and seeing anything in bright colors and glitter has me basically hypnotized! We received a variety of spring decor that we could choose to decorate our tobacco basket with, and while I loved everything, I was especially drawn to the adorable chicks, eggs, and flowers. I was also very pleased to see we received absolutely everything needed to create the finished project. They sent extra wire, floral foam, and picks to easily adhere all of our decorations.
This month we were given the option to paint our basket or leave it plain. In case we wanted to paint it, we received a foam brush. I like receiving these brushes each month because I tend to get a little wild painting and like the fact I can just toss it when I'm finished, as it usually looks like a dog chewed on it by the time I'm done...
Tacky Glue - Buy a 4 oz bottle for $1.99
Like I said above, they send all of the necessary supplies to create the month's projects. I found this tacky glue to adhere well, and hold everything I needed to stay right where I placed it.
Apple Barrel Acrylic Paint in Antique Parchment (2 oz) - Retail Value $0.99
Like I have said in previous reviews, I love Apple Barrel paints, as they dry quickly and come in a vast array of colors. Plus they are made in the USA!
We received 2 pieces of wire ribbon in a metallic sheen. The ribbon is easily manipulated into any bow you want, and looks gorgeous in real life!
Our basket just wouldn't be complete without some greenery! We received a bag full of moss in a variety of green colors and textures for our spring decorations to sit on.
Because we are sent enough supplies to create 2 projects, I decided to go ahead and leave one basket the original color, and whitewash the other. To do this, I added a light layer of paint onto a paper plate and added a bit of water to give a distressed look to my basket. Once that was complete, I let my basket dry. While waiting for the basket to dry, I went ahead and added a pick to each egg so I could easily roll them in glue and sprinkle them with glitter. When the eggs were drying, I worked on my bows. I made a bit of a loopy bow with the pink ribbon and a regular bow with the blue. Using a piece of the wire, I attached the ribbons to the bottom right corner of the baskets, and weaved the excess up the back. Again using the wire, I attached the green floral foam to the bottom right corner. Then came the really fun part: DECORATING! I used the tacky glue to adhere the moss to the foam and played around with the different embellishments we were sent. It was really fun getting to choose exactly how I wanted this project to look, and I was extremely happy with the results!
Project #2: Greeting Cards
Here is the greeting card package. I love that they include everything we need to make a card to give with our projects. I love the duckling clip art, and especially adore how well the sage green and pink sparkly glitter paper coordinate. This might be my favorite card kit yet!
Avery Disappearing Color Glue Stic (7.4 g) - Buy a set of 3 for $5.52
Again, we received an Avery Disappearing Color Glue Stic. This is to create the card. The glue seems to stick well, and the purple color dries to white. I always enjoy receiving glue sticks because one can never have enough glue sticks, can they?
This month's card was a breeze to complete, and turned out adorable! All I had to do was glue the pink glitter onto the white card, add the green card stock, color my duckling, and glue it on! I also added the "Happy Easter" sticker to the inside of my card. Not shown in these pictures, but shown below are the little flower embellishments that were included. They are darling, but I am a little worried they would fall off if sent in the mail... Because I had those extra die cuts that could have been used in the tobacco basket, I added those to my envelopes, as you can see below.
Project #3: Bags
Some months we receive a tag and tissue paper to add onto our bags. This month we did not receive that, but did get 2 of these larger gift bags to put our projects in. I found the white floral design on the brown paper to be romantic looking and a perfect way to give our beautiful creations.
Here are this month's completed projects! They certainly scream "Spring" to me, and I have already added one of them to my living room decor! I'm not sure who the recipient of the whitewashed basket will be, but Charlie has been begging me to let him hang it in his room...
Verdict: Confetti Grace is a lot of fun! I love the fact that every 2 months I receive this box of happiness in the mail! While I usually create these projects with my kids, this time I did most of the work by myself. (Charlie did make me promise I would use the chicks on one though.) I love that these projects are sent with every necessary supply, and that clean up is a breeze. This month I found the craft to be a lot more customizable than previous months, which made it extra fun. I can't wait to see what they send for May! Any guesses?
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 very charming, and gave our living room just the right "spring" it needed!
