{Valentines day} pixelated popup card

How to Make A Decorative Chrysanthemum Mirror. Chrysanthemums are some of my favorite flowers.

How to Make A Decorative Chrysanthemum Mirror

I especially like the varieties with the petals that fade from dark, saturated color in the center of the flower, to a lighter color near the outer edge of the flower. So yesterday, I decided to try to replicate this look on a decorative mirror using plastic spoons. So obviously it doesn’t look exactly like a chrysanthemum, but I think it’s pretty good! What do you think? I had fun with this project! First, I bought six packages of 48 plastic spoons, and I cut the handles off of all of them. Next, I was in the mood to craft…not to use power tools. But here’s what I did. Then I flipped it over, with the spoon handles on the bottom, and I covered the gap with thick paper (almost like cardstock) using hot glue to attach it.

Then I started attaching the spoons with hot glue. I just kept adding and layering the spoons… For some reason, I didn’t take a picture after I attached the final row of spoon “petals”. DIY Macrame Bracelet. Growing up by the beach in Southern California, the ability to knot a macrame bracelet was practically a right of passage.

DIY Macrame Bracelet

Although those days are long behind us, we’ve never forgotten the ever-so-simple square knot technique. This time, however, we’re replacing hemp and wooden beads for more updated elements like colorful nylon cord and glossy metal charms. Happy knotting! You’ll need: Start by cutting the knotting cord into two 30 inch, two 20 inch and one 10 inch lengths. Center the 30 inch cord under the two middle strands. Pull tightly and slide the knot up to the top. Finish the 2nd half of the square knot by folding the left cord over the middle strands and under the right cord. Pull tightly and repeat the steps – left, right, left, right . . . To finish the knots, thread one of the cords onto a needle and sew up the center of 3-4 knots along the backside. Winter 2009.
