Ready for the Beach with StyleTechCraft Sun Changing Vinyl

Summer Fun with Sun Changing Vinyl

One of my most favorite places to be is the beach (my happy place). 

It’s been 3 long years since we’ve been to the ocean and I can hardly wait.  

With our big family beach vacation just a few weeks away, I thought this would be the perfect

time to play with my NEW StyleTechCraft Sun Vinyl*.

The Sun Vinyl, available in blue, pink, purple, and yellow, reacts to the Sun’s UV Rays

and goes from an off-white to its respective colors.

I don’t care if you’re young or old, you have to admit it’s pretty darn cool.

Dollar Tree Sand Toys and Water Bottle

I used inexpensive Beach Toys* and a Water Bottle* I found at my local Dollar Tree

and a vinyl bag that I already had.

For best results, allow the vinyl to cure for a couple of days before using.  Hand Wash Only.

Yesterday my grandson came over and we pretended we were on the beach.  

This is the first time we’re going with my son and his family.

We are ALL very excited and ready for the beach.

Dollar Store DIY-Washi Tape Holder

Dollar Store DIY-How to make a Washi Tape Holder

A Dollar Store DIY

Turn an inexpensive Dollar Tree wood tray* into a cute little washi tape holder.

Just add Mod Podge and Decorative Tissue Paper for a quick and easy project.  

I found this cute little wood tray the other day at Dollar Tree and I thought it was

the perfect size to hold a small collection of Washi Tape. 

(I’m so happy that Dollar Tree is bringing in more craft supplies.)

Mod Podged Washi Tape Holder

Materials Used:

Mod Podge on a Wood Tray

Directions:

  • Lightly sand the surface of the tray with the sanding block to smooth.
  • Paint the outside with white birch paint and the inside with dark scarlet.
  • Cut the tissue paper into 3″ strips.  Working one side at a time, apply Mod Podge* to the side of the tray.  Apply and gently smooth tissue paper.  Apply tissue paper to all four sides.  Allow Mod Podge* to dry.
  • Use a Sanding Block* on the edges of the tray to gently remove the extra tissue paper.
  • Use a Small Emory Board* to gently remove the extra tissue paper from the small opening.
  • Apply one or two coats of mod podge over the tissue paper to seal.

Dollar Store Crafting

With so many unique patterns of tissue paper available you should be able to easily

find the perfect pattern to decoupage your little tray.

Mod Podged Washi Tape Holder

The wood tray measures approximately 5″ x 7″ and can hold several rolls of Washi Tape.
