Galaxy Handbag (and heels!)

But as of a few days ago, that might have changed...or least when it comes to ultra fine glitter. I've always thought it's pretty, especially when I'm looking at entire spectrum of colors. My heart totally skips a beat whenever I look at something in many colors, all lined up - like these Proenza Schouler satchel bags or the mineral eyeshadows at Bare Escentuals boutiques OR this Prisamcolor Premier Pencil Wood Box Set...

Wednes-DIY Home Décor: The Light Bulb Vase

These are some of our most loved posts by you, our amazing readers. Don’t throw away those old light bulbs just yet! I have a fun, easy DIY for you that will brighten up your home decor or workspace :) This DIY is very simple, but it requires working with glass so you definitely need to be careful! What you need: A light bulb (any shape or size will work!) , pliers and gardening wire. Step One: First you need to remove the little silver layer on the bottom of the light bulb. Step Two: Now you have to remove the black cap from the bottom of the light bulb. Step Three: Once the black glass was removed it was really easy to get the little glass tube and wiring on the inside of the bulb out – I simply tapped it with the pliers and it broke right off.

And now you have your empty lightbulb! Step Four: Add flowers and water, and hang with the gardening wire! Print Hula Hoop Rug Page. I Spy DIY. Instructables - Make, How To, and DIY. IMG_0830.JPG (1600×1040) Pretty Petals Potholder 9378.
