Want a cute, simple decoration that you can make in minutes? These paper lanterns are perfect for the upcoming holiday season or as an everyday decoration! What a great way to add color to a room or to your holiday table :) Make a bunch and string them together as a garland, or put a bunch in a bowl , or in a hurricane glass in a bathroom or guestroom.
In gift wrap emergencies when you've got the present but need some wrapping, here's an idea for turning a magazine page into a bow. There may be better ways to stick this thing together, but I used what I had on hand: staples and adhesive glue dots . Double stick tape or brads should work, too.
It's the last stiffened fabric project and then I'm moving on! I wanted to try an oversized, realistic fabric rose just for fun. Make a template with six petals. I traced around a dinner plate and a small bowl on the back of some ugly wrapping paper. (Tip: if the paper is too curly, iron it flat and your life will be better.)
Hi there! It’s felt like forever since I’ve last blogged, and has felt like an eternity since I’ve done anything crafty and nifty. Since my morning sickness has gone into full speed (yes, we’re expecting our third this fall!) I haven’t felt like myself.
I've been a bad friend. Several months ago, one of my best friends from high school told me that she was moving. And she wanted some suggestions for decorating and setting up home in her new location....
---Update---12/3/2011--- This post has been pinned like crazy on Pinterest and because of that a lot of readers have tried these out and have had a lot of questions. So I wanted to answer them as best as possible. --- I felt like soaking was better than boiling but some sticks may take longer to soak then others. The shorter, thinner ones are going to be harder to bend so just work them gently, re-soak and repeat. --- You will break some.
Side Chignon 1. Using a round brush, blow-dry hair smooth and straight, focusing on the top sections. 2. Once dry, use a large-barrel curling iron to create waves from the ears down.
*Before I get started on this project, let me just say that I am HORRIBLE at thinking of post titles. Mine are soooo boring! I was just going to put “striped table runner” but that’s so blah! I like the alliteration with this one, but if your table runner takes any more than 10 minutes, you’ve got issues. Unless you’re making something spectacular like this .
I'll keep this short and sweet, but I wanted to do a Top Ten post for 2011, so here it is! #10 This quilt I made for my son. Also, a big shout out and Thank You to the Top 5 Referring Blogs: It's been kind of fun to go back and see what the most popular posts for the year have been. I used google analytics to figure them out, and some of them surprise me!
