After making our string art craft with one of KLUTZ Handmade Kits, we wanted to do more! So we attended the Klutz Handmade Holidays Crafting Party to learn about other kits to help families make handmade gifts this year.
Note: I was invited as media to this event and received a gift bag. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.
We visited the KLUTZ Toy Workshop for an afternoon of crafting fun! There was LOTS to learn and do since KLUTZ makes more than 110 million activity products. That's a lot of being craft and it's all fun!
To help us with all our crafting fun, Amy Mascott of Teach Mama was there to give support and crafting advice. Then it was time to get busy and try out a range of KLUTZ kits!
We started with making KLUTZ Window Art that lets you put an overlay on a traceable design, then using the no-mess squeeze bottles, trace the outline and fill in with the bright acrylic window paints. After your paint dries, you have a piece of "stained glass" art decal that sticks to your window but can be peeled off when you want something new.
Then we made KLUTZ Shrink and Link Jewelry, which lets you make reusable, transferable, dimensional pendants and attach them to a ring or a necklace. My son choose a monkey so he had to trace, color and cut before baking.
After baking my son had a a cool monkey charm to show off.
We ended our crafting session with the KLUTZ Charm Bracelet Studio painting our charm bangle bracelets. From the 100 designs he could choose from, my son picked the ying and yang (without my prompt). I was so touched.
While we only had time to try out these KLUTZ, there's lots more kits and ways to use your creativity and make a personal handcrafted holiday gift for a loved one.
The KLUTZ kits feature crystal clear instructions and everything you need to get started. the editors at KLUTZ have taken some of the hottest crafts and popular trends from modern decoupage to amazing batik, custom friendship bracelets to moving LEGO® machines and shrink art jewelry, and made them easy to re-create!
