During our recent Create-A-Thon, Laura, Lindsay, and I had the opportunity to work with Diamond Dotz® for the first time. We were all a bit intimidated, so we started with the super cute Dotzies® Stickers sets, which take about 30 minutes. Next, we graduated to the Dotz® Box and finally moved on to the full-size Diamond Dotz® diamond painting artwork kit. The only way I can describe Diamond Dotz diamond painting kits is that they are a combination of paint by numbers and cross-stitch. My Diamond Dotz Beginners Guide to Diamond Painting Kits will walk you through from opening the kits, to organizing the supplies, and ideas on how to use the finished artwork.

Here's how to create a Diamond Painting:
To start the Diamond Dotz® Dotzies® Sticker Kit, gather all supplies. Each kit contains High-Quality Color Printed Fabric, DIAMOND DOTZ pre-sorted by shade, a Craft Tray, a Stylus with Soft Grip, a Wax Square, and Pictorial Instructions. Work on a level table with a comfortable chair, and plenty of light.
Remove the plastic covering from the wax square and then insert the metal end of the stylus into the wax. Create a hole and pick up the wax inside the stylus tip. Repeat this step as needed throughout your diamond painting experience.
Keep the color chart out for reference. Starting with the first color, cut open the package of Diamond Dotz® and pour them into the craft tray. Tap the tray gently on your work surface and the Diamond Dotz® will magically land faceted side up.
Peel the adhesive liner paper from the Dotzies® Sticker. Then pick up a Diamond Dotz® with the stylus, place it on the symbol that coordinates with the number and color on the chart. Repeat until the entire color section is complete. Continue on to the next two Dotzies® Stickers placing that color in the coordinating spaces.
Using the funnel end of the craft tray, carefully replace the extra Diamond Dotz® back onto the package. Then fold over and secure with tape. Continue working with each color of Diamond Dotz® on the color chart to complete the set of stickers. This is the perfect project to begin your Diamond Dotz® journey!
