Now that summer is winding up, we thought this would be a great time to share some stylish kid friendly back-to-school project ideas using top-of-the-line adhesives produced by Eclectic Products’, a division of Willamette Valley Company.
The E6000® line of adhesives can be found in most arts and crafts stores and offer a wide range of products to suit all your adhesive needs, including Fabri-Fuse, Jewelry and Bead, Stitchless, and Spray Adhesive to name a few. These five Back-to-School project ideas, presented by our good friend Mark Montano of Make Your Mark, are fun ways for the kids to kick off the new school year in style.
No Sew! Easy Rag Rug Pillows
The great thing is that with Fabri-Fuse, No Sew really means No Sew! A bit of adhesive and some materials and you’ll end up with stylish rag rug pillows worthy of sale in even the trendiest of artisanal markets!
Recycled Paper Jewelry
DIY jewelry is a fun and relaxing way to get ready for the new school year. When you can make creative, wearable jewelry out of old magazines and adhesive, it’s even better!
Octo Love DIY Sweater
Now, if you’re somehow Octo-opposed, don’t worry, you can use these same techniques to create all sorts of fun patterns on sweaters and fabrics! Your kids will have a blast coming up with different designs to create!
Allure-Ing Fabric Bracelets
This project is named after E6000®’s Allure Dimension Design Adhesive Paint in Gloss! As you can see, beyond simply sticking things together you can use E6000 to create some fun designs and bring out the true “Art” in “Arts and Crafts.”
