Simply round up a pair of shoes from your closet, grab your craft supplies, and fashion a pair of heels that are in-style and showcase your creative flair! Continue reading →

We’re excited about the opportunity to meet fellow crafters and customers at the Craft & Hobby Association Winter Conference January 29 and 30 in Los Angeles. As you may have heard, designer extraordinaire Mark Montano will be stopping by the Eclectic Booth to giveaway autographed copies of the “Big Ass Book of Home Decor.” But if you can’t attend CHA this year, we don’t want you to be left out of the fun.
One of our favorite things about being an exhibitor is talking to attendees — swapping crafting tips, hearing your feedback about Eclectic products, and listening to your ideas for upcoming projects. If you can’t make it to CHA, we’d still love to hear from you! And we want to give you the chance to get your hands on Montano’s latest book. We’ll even throw in a pack of E-6000, Amazing GOOP, QuickHOLD and EcoGlue to get you started on your new projects.
Enter to Win
We’ve got 3 autographed copies of Montano’s book, “The Big Ass Book of Home Decor” to giveaway. You can enter to win up to three times.
Here’s how that works:
- You get one entry if you tweet a link to this post (and mention @amazinggoop)
- “Like” us on Facebook for a second entry
- Finally, leave a comment here on the blog for a third entry, simply by answering the following questions:
- What new product would you most like to see from E-6000?
- What would be the most important features of this new product?
That’s it! Simple, right? We’ll take entries through midnight on the 30th of January (pacific time), drop all your names in a spreadsheet, and use a random number generator to select our winners.
When you come out with as many amazing craft projects as Mark Montano does, sometimes there isn’t room to contain them all. We love this Laminated Lampshade project that didn’t make the cut for Mark’s book “The Big Ass Book of Crafts,” and we’re so happy that he saved it for his blog.
What you’ll need:
- Drum Lampshade
- An image to copy and laminate
- E-6000 Adhesive
- Clear or Masking Tape
For complete directions, visit Mark’s blog, where you’ll find more of his amazing craft projects and information about his upcoming book.
We’re gearing up for our booth at the 2011 Craft & Hobby Association Winter Conference, held in Los Angeles, California on January 29 and 30. What could possibly be more exciting than CHA? A visit from designer extraordinaire, author, and TV host Mark Montano! We’re so excited to have our friend, Mark, stop by the Eclectic Products booth at CHA to meet fellow crafters and friends.
At the conference, Mark will discuss his upcoming book, “Pulp Fiction: Paper-Paper-Paper.” Mark will give away signed copies of his latest book “Big Ass Book of Home Decor” to the first 75 attendees. He’ll also be available for autographs at the Eclectic booth (#1029) from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m both days.
A long-time supporter of Eclectic Products, Mark is a fan of E-6000 and GOOP in all forms. And we’re big fans of Mark, too! We’ve featured several of his projects on the Eclectic blog over the years and we’re looking forward to sharing projects from his new book. Can’t wait that long to try out a Mark Montano project? You can get started on one of these fun projects from our archives today!
If you’re planning to attend CHA, let us know, and don’t forget to stop by Eclectic booth #1029.
Mark Montano Projects:
We’re excited to share with you another fun project from Mark Montano. This hair accessory would be a fantastic gift or stocking stuffer, don’t you think?
More simple ideas for gifts that won’t make your pocket book scream. These hair accessories are easy, glam, and perfect for the holiday season. Who wouldn’t want a dash of spring in the middle of winter? How about making them in BLACK with black glitter? That would surely be a show stopper.
Needle and thread
FOR THE HAIR BAND
1. Cut the stem from the flower
2. With a heavy duty needle and thread sew the flower from the center on to the band.
3. Coat the edge each edge of the flower with glitter glue and let dry.
FOR THE FLOWER BOBBY PIN
1. Remove the stem from the flower.
2. Using the E-6000 glue the flower to the end of the bobby pin.
3. Coat the edges of the flower with glitter glue and let dry.
As you know, each week we do our best to bring you a new craft or DIY project. Each week means four projects a month, 48 a year and well, you get the idea. That’s a lot of inspiration and ideas! That being said, we’ve got a lot of great projects that perhaps you haven’t seen before. Here are just a few, but don’t hesitate to take a peak through our archives and see what you can find.
We love this project because there are so many ways to personalize it. You don’t necessarily have to spell a name, how about a word or phrase that you especially like?
A couple years ago, Mark Montano hosted a celebrity crafting event at the Sundance Film Festival. Guests were invited to make these adorable flower corsages among other great crafts.
These magnets are too cute not to try with your little ones. Little pine cones could work, too!
There are so many different ways to create a custom headboard, so we’ve found great budget friendly options we know you’ll love.
Every now and then it’s nice to choose a project that can be completed in just a few hours. That’s why we love this standing wood candelabra from Mark Montano. With just a few supplies, you can have your own candelabra in no time! And, be sure to pick up Mark’s newest book, Big Ass Book of Crafts for more great projects like this!
I made this for a friend when she got married and they LOVE it. It was easy to make and I enjoyed the process very much. Everything you need to make it is at your local hardware store. It’s a project ANYONE can do. I hope you enjoy it!
2 decorative scroll wooden shelf brackets 8 1/2 inches long (Home Depot or Lowe’s)
4 plain wooden shelf brackets
One 5 foot long piece of 2×2 pine
Krylon Spray Paint in a color you like
5 glass votive holders
Working on a large flat surface, glue the wooden scroll brackets flush with one end of the 2×2.
Glue 2 of the plain wooden flush with the other end of the 2×2.
While that is drying, glue a third plain wooden bracket on the 2×2. This will start to create the base of the candelabra.
After this dries (give it a couple of hours) flip your candelabra over with the 3rd plain bracket hanging over the edge of your work surface and glue on the 4th plain bracket to the bottom of the 2×2.
When this is dry, paint with your spray paint.
