I love the way the cherry trees outside my building bloom cheerfully each Spring. I wanted to bring the beauty of those cherry blossoms indoors so I made some out of tissue paper and to make them even more special I added LEDs These pretty lights are inexpensive and easy to make. They are made mostly from material found at a dollar store. You can make several branches for a spray of cherry blossoms to decorate your room.
You might remember our woven chain bracelet tutorial, one of our favorite DIYs to date. As we're starting to get a taste of spring, we're revisiting this oldie but goodie with some minor adjustments - As the month of love approaches, we thought we'd combine friendship and hearts into one Valentine's Day themed tutorial: a heart patterned friendship bracelet!

Due to the resounding success of her last She’s Crafty , my friend Pandora from Accessory Source is back with another lovely necklace DIY tutorial that would make a fantastic christmas present for a friend or relative! She says: When it comes to jewelry, I favor big and bold pieces.

My multi-chain necklace has become a staple in my wardrobe because it incorporates it all. Here’s a quick 10 step tutorial on how to make your own bulky bauble.
Reader Ryan Mottau built this awesome DIY smartphone car mount using our favorite DIY wonder-tool, the binder clip . Here's how he did it. What You'll Need Large (2" wide) binder clips String for wrapping (I found black macramé thread at local craft store) Rubber bands (black bands found in office supply store) Duct tape (of course! Black can be found in many stores) Problem: I wanted to take full advantage of the mapping and other car-friendly features on my Android phone without having to look down or have the phone slide under off my leg and under my foot, especially when traveling in rental cars. Idea: Inexpensive mounting system (so that if I lose it I am not out a $45 accessory) that can attach to any car and provide close to line-of-sight use of my phone.
