Lil’ Grace Monthly DIY Box March 2021 Review
Lil’ Grace is a smaller monthly option that Confetti Grace offers, and it’s one I look forward to each and every month. My crafting buddies are usually my kids, but this month I crafted alone. The March box included the directions and supplies to create two egg-shaped display stands. Per usual, we received extra goodies to customize our stands however we chose. Because Easter is very important to my family, we love decorating our home with this type of décor to celebrate Spring and the resurrection of Jesus! Read out below to see how these stands turned out.
Included in our box was a set of instructions explaining how to create this month’s project. I find these directions easy to follow, with a few tips and tricks along the way. I also enjoy the fact that they give you suggestions, but also encourage you to decorate your project however you may like.
To create our egg-shaped display stands, we received most of the necessary supplies. We did have to supply our own workspace covering, a Philips head screw driver, and scissors. Included were the wooden stand pieces, screws, paint, glue, embellishments, and paintbrushes. I do have to say, I really appreciate that they tape the paint and glue containers shut to prevent spilling, and how high-quality all of the supplies are.
As a special extra, we also received a little glass bunny to debut on one of the egg pedestals. This two inch, hollow, glass cutie came in pristine condition and was the perfect addition to my brown and pink egg!
Card and Envelope
Because Grace’s motto is “throw kindness around like confetti,” they suggest keeping one of these gifts and giving the other one away. While we usually receive a bag or box to package the gift in, this month we didn’t receive any packaging materials, but we did receive this sweet, blank “Butterfly kisses” card! I can’t say that I’m terribly upset that we didn’t receive a bag this month, as I [selfishly] plan on keeping both of this months projects.
Creating the Décor
The first step in this month’s project was to place the wooden o-ring on the top of the egg. Once that is in place, I inserted the screw into the top of the wooden disk and attached it. This part was a tiny bit tricky as the pedestal didn’t end up level the first time. I had to adjust a couple of times before it finally sat straight. Once all the pieces fit together tightly I added the glue to the top of the pedestal for the decorative wooden disk.
Once the pedestal was put together, I went ahead and painted the bases. For my first base, I decided to paint the egg brown, accenting it with a light pink top. I went for a different approach with the second pedestal, and painted that one white letting the paint dry before adding a thick layer of glue, then smothering it in glitter (not included).
I left my glitter pedestal as is because it already had so much going on, but I decided to add the pretty burlap and pink ribbon we received around the edge of the disk. Using the included tacky glue, I added the ribbon and cut off the excess. I thought it looked really cute as it was, but I just had to try out the foam dabber we received, so I decided to add some coordinating polka dots. Didn’t it turn out cute?
And here are both of the egg-shaped pedestals “in the wild.” My bunny one has found its place on a shelf next to a sock bunny I made from my late grandma’s sock, and my glitter pedestal found itself on my end table holding up the Kiwi Vanilla candle I received in the March Candle & Bloom box!
Verdict: This month’s Lil’ Grace DIY Box was a lot less stressful than last month’s projects, and were really fun to customize. I love receiving the dainty embellishments with loose instructions that really spark your imagination and let your creativity flow. I was satisfied with both of my finished projects, and as you can see, am happy to debut them in my home. This box is wonderful to share with a friend, but I also find it soothing to do on your own. The fact that these kits come with almost everything you need and can be done in a short amount of time – makes it perfect for a rainy day or late night “me” time. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for April!
Lil’ Grace Monthly DIY Box costs $14.95 + $4.95 per monthly delivery, so each decoration averages out to about $6.63. I feel this was a decent value as we also received a card and that sweet glass bunny. That coupled with the fact that we have leftover paint, glue, and ribbon is a win for me!
