Hello fellow crafters! My name is Cassi and I am The Endless Crafter. Here you will find recipes, DIY tutorials, cool stuff I find for you guys to partake in, and nail art. I also have a serious love of cosplaying, so any cosplay tutorials will be tagged "cosplay" and I will be putting a link below.

Calm Bottle (aka Glitter Jar)

Supplies

  • Container: This is typically made with a glass mason jar, but since I often make these with children I use water bottles with smooth sides.
  • One bottle of clear glue (not white glue that dries clear), or glitter glue: I like using regular glue so I don’t have to deal with the hot water since I make these in my office. Glue/glitter glue works best, but you could also use corn syrup if that’s all you have. You have to pour it directly in the water without letting it touch the sides of the bottle or the glitter will stick to it.
  • Water: It can be room temperature if you use regular glue but should be hot (I use boiling water) if glitter glue is used. If the water is not hot enough then the glitter will become clumpy and separate.
  • Glitter: I use mostly super fine glitter with a little regular sized. I sometimes add sequins, beads, shells, plastic jewels, etc. Glow in the dark glitter looks really cool if you can find it. Less (or even none) is needed with glitter glue bottles
  • Food coloring: This is optional. Only use one drop or it becomes difficult to see the glitter.
  • Strong glue or duct tape: This is used to fasten the lid to the container. I like using colored duct tape.

Directions

  • Making a Calm Bottle (clear glue): Fill the bottle 3/4 of the way full with water. Then add the glue (and shake) and glitter (and shake). I use a funnel for the glitter. The more glue you use, the longer it will take the glitter to fall. I usually use the whole bottle. Add 1 drop of food coloring, if desired, and then glue/tape the lid on.
  • Making a Calm Bottle (glitter glue): Instead of clear glue you can use glitter glue. If you go this rout then mix the glitter glue in a bowl with very hot water (I boil the water) before adding it to the bottle. If the water is not hot enough then the glue will clump up and not work. You can add 1 drop of food color and additional glitter is desired.
  • Using a Calm Bottle: This coping tool can be used for a number of different issues.  If a client becomes emotionally dysregulated at an inappropriate time they shake the bottle vigorously and then set it down and watch the glitter fall while taking deep breaths (how to teach deep breathing can be found here).  
  • Important Note: Many people use these for anxiety and panic attacks and I wanted to emphasize that this is merely a simple coping tool that can be useful in certain situations but should not be used to avoid dealing with underlying issues.  This exercise will do absolutely nothing to get to the root cause or prevent it from happening in the future.  Fear must be confronted, rather than avoided, for lasting change to take place.

SIGNAL BOOST because i fucking love glitter jars and they’ve saved my ass at school.

have anxiety? glitter jar. get stressed easy? glitter jar. like glitter? glitter jar. are you a parent or a teacher or a babysitter? give a kid a glitter jar to look at when they are in time-out to keep them from crying or screaming and shit. give one to the kid while on a roadtrip. keep one in your locker at school. i do. me and my friends have access to it and if a teacher is an asshat or something goes wrong or we’re stressed about work or collages or anything like that, just shake the glitter jar and look at it for a while and it’s the most calming this in the galaxy. 

speaking of galaxies, look at this

if you take a picture of one and slap some instagram filters on it, the thing becomes a jar of pure space.

if you dont think glitter jars are fucking rad then get out of my face.

i don’t know about you, but i grew up seeing mostly white dolls that looked nothing like me. in fact, even the few black dolls i saw looked nothing like me. they had super straight hair, and sometimes blue or green eyes. where was the barbie doll with brown eyes and beautiful curly, kinky hair?
well now, i found a DIY tutorial that allows you to make even the doll with the finest hair, look a little more like you.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
A doll
End papers (sold at beauty supply shops)
Pipe cleaners
Scissors
Boiling water
Note about end papers: If you start with a doll that has long hair and you plan to make a style similar to the style shown in my picture, you won’t need end papers, they’re optional. But if you start with a doll that has shorter hair and don’t plan to cut it any further, end papers will be essential.
1. Cut pipe cleaners into two-inch pieces and bend each one in half. They will look like little “V” shapes.
2. Section off a piece of hair and twist it into a tight spiral. The smaller the sections, the tighter the curls will be.
3. Wrap the spiral in an end paper (optional)

4. Place a pipe cleaner onto the scalp and pull the twisted section into the crook of the pipe cleaner. Be sure to keep the hair spiraled tightly as you zig-zag it.

 

5. When you finish zig-zagging each section, twist the pipe cleaner ends around each other to lock everything into place.


fully wrapped head

6. Once you have all the sections in pipe cleaners, dip the head in boiling water for the count of ten.7. Wait for the head to cool – usually a few hours, but overnight is best. Rinse in cold water and place doll in freezer if you want to speed things up.8. Take the pipe cleaners out.9. If you have length to spare, trim each section to get rid of straight ends or strays.






feel free to leave it like this, or pick it out and make your doll’s fro as big as you desire. i don’t know about you, but i’m definitely going to be doing a few of these for my little cousin, who is currently very insecure about her own beautiful curly hair.

Breakfast Cereal Tea.

For many people, the best part about having cereal for breakfast is that deliciously flavored milk left over at the bottom of the bowl after all the cereal has been eaten.  If you do not want to eat—or throw away—all that cereal just to get to this special milk, Aaron Gemon has a brilliant solution for you. You can make your own “breakfast cereal tea”.

Technically, there is no tea in this awesome beverage, but it does involve teabags. After emptying a regular teabag of tea leaves, Gemon filled it with crushed up or blended cereal. To produce the desired cereal-soaked milk, simply dunk this cereal teabag into hot milk. Gemon has even gone so far as to convert the cereal box into a nifty tea bag dispenser.

View the entire tutorial on how to make breakfast cereal teabags on Instructables.

This was my first splatter paint project that I did for my girlfriend before she left the states. It was a lot of fun and I can’t wait until she’s back so we can do more.

I wanna do this!
