Build a Rustic X Console. Bee Skep Tutorial. I mentioned before that I made a primitive bee skep this past Sunday.

Bee Skep Tutorial

I think it turned out pretty well and I'd like to share it with you. I came across this "craft recipe" on Primitive Blessings' website. There weren't any pictures, so I have nothing to compare it with. I was a little nervous at first, but my hubby has his own concrete business and has worked with concrete for a little over 30 years, so having him by my side to help, lessened the fear.

The recipe called for concrete mix, but my husband said that mortar mix would work better. Okay, so here we go. . . . Materials needed: Halloween Black Roses and Wreath. From:Westborough, MA, USA Posted: November 3, 2012 I made this wreath and love it.

Halloween Black Roses and Wreath

Took a while. Estimate about 12-15 minutes per rose. What isn't explained however, is that it's so heavy, it becomes an oval if you only use one hook to hang (which was fine for my door) . +2points 2out of 2found this story helpful. Bleach Pen. Ich habe im Internet einen Bleach Pen entdeckt und was man damit machen kann.

Heute habe ich meinen ersten Versuch gestartet, ein T Shirt zu noch nicht so perfekt geworden, aber ich finde es ganz lustig. Im Grunde hat es den Effekt wie beim Batiken, nur anders herum. Man nimmt ein farbiges Shirt und trägt die Bleiche auf, mit dem Stift und seiner feinen Spitze ganz einfach. Es gibt aber keine scharfe Kante, sondern verläuft etwas. Ich habe vielleicht auch zu lange gewartet mit dem auswaschen. Ich überlege, ob ich das Shirt zusätzlich an den gebleichten Stellen noch besticke, es könnte ganz hübsch aussehen, was meint Ihr?

How to make gift bags from newspaper. When I bought something at a store recently, the clerk handed me my purchase in a bag made from a newspaper. I liked it very much and had to make some more—thus today's DIY recycled newspaper project: gift bags made from the Wall Street Journal. You can vary the dimensions, of course, but here's what I used to create a bag that's 5" tall, 4.5" wide, and 3" deep. Stack two sheets of newspaper on top of each other. This will be a two-ply bag for extra sturdiness.

Cut out a rectangle that's 15.5" wide and 8.25" tall. Fold a flap 1.25" down from the top. Cut two pieces of cardstock or chipboard to 4.25" x 1", then glue them on the widest two panels just under the top fold. Put glue on the outside of the 0.5" tab and bring the left-most panel over to form the body of the bag, aligning the cut edge of the panel with the folded edge of the flap. Upend the bag so the 2" flap is now up. Crafty.

Noel Home: Comfy PJ Pants for the Whole Family. Our thanks to our creative friends at our Signature Sponsor, Janome for sharing this project with us. It was created last year for a special New Sewists Series they put together, and the instructions show you how to make pajama pants without a pattern; simply grab your favorite current pair and use them as a template. We added a jazzy bottom accent cuff to ours so we could mix and match our beautiful Michael Miller Bonnes Amies fabrics. This is a perfect project for beginners: super fast, easy and instantly gratifying. We thought it would be great fun to surprise the whole family on Christmas morning with matching PJ pants.

I recruited one of the cutest families I know to be our models, and the rest is dreamy history. Our thanks to the great folks at Michael Miller Fabrics for providing the Bonnes Amies fabric we used for our four pairs of PJ pants.

After seeing some of these on Pinterest, Boo and I bought some Fourth of July glow sticks and broke into them early.
