We all are impressed by fire pits that we can find in stores. Although they are usually quite expensive. In case you one of those people who likes such fire pits but don’t want to spend a lot of money on one of them, you should make one by yourself. Here is a tutorial done by Karen of Art of Doing Stuff. Here is what you’ll need: Marine silicone Cheap glass frames Small rocks Any kind of metal mesh Gel fuel Metal planter with a lip (edge) on it
31 minute project You'll need: Sakrete Quickset Concrete a bunch of rocks (perhaps dug up from your yard) a plastic bowl a large canned good chafing dish gel fuel pack PAM cooking spray newspaper plastic tub for mixing concrete stick to stir concrete You are going to create one of these (which, FYI, Restoration Hardware doesn't sale anymore, hence why we are making our own)
*no animals or plants were hurt in the making of this project. *one really stupid person did get hurt in the making of this project, but she would like to mention that even though the needle penetrated...no swear words passed her lips. it's was a modern day miracle. i love how this pillow turned out. i made it in green for two reasons: 1. it's still kind of cold here, and still kind of brown...will be for a little bit longer so i wanted some GREEN and springy looking happiness in my home. 2. it's the only color of jersey i had on hand, and living in the middle of nowhere doesn't let me just jump in the car and go to a store that i can find jersey fabric at (which btw this fabric was found at jo-anns but i would suggest amazon if you can't find what you are looking for, that's where i get a lot of mine when i can't find stuff)
Add a burst of color to your room with this crafty pouf! At 17” wide and 10” deep, it’s large enough to serve as floor seating or a foot stool. (And if you have pets, I have a feeling they may want to make this their new favorite spot!) This project is a little challenging to sew, but it’s not too difficult, so if you’re comfortable with the basics of sewing, give it a try. You can make a colorwheel effect with a range of solid colors, or choose a variety of patterned fabrics for a louder patchwork effect. Medium-weight cottons work well for this design (check out quilting shops for great selections of solids and prints).
Have you been working on sprucing up a room? I have. Our little nursery is always a work in progress. I have added things here and there and it’s becoming more and more cozy. And here’s the latest addition.
We have a big space above our entertainment center. And a fairly tall ceiling. So I came up with a solution to fill up all of that plain ‘ol wall. (No paint allowed……oh, the life of a renter.) (Ignore those empty picture frames……pictures are being printed.) Do you remember when I made some wall hangings a while ago?

Once again, more toddler room decor . I’ve been trying to get the room done…….so only a couple more things to share. And for this time, I have a quick little 3D butterfly display to share.
First of all, did you see the winner of the Silhouette CAMEO here ? Also, have you entered the Hellmann’s/BlogHer giveaway here ? An easy $100 to spend on anything you’d like over at cooking.com. Fantastic! Okay, onto other things. I know I have mentioned this before (maybe 100 times or so….haha!)
Inspired by Annette's Modern DIY Outdoor Planter post , Apartment Therapy reader Chris shows us all how easy this project was to recreate... Thank you for your post on Annette's modern DIY outdoor planter . I immediately went to Home Depot to replicate it in my barren back patio.
Jessica of Wednesday Inc shows us how to make those gorgeous twine chandeliers from the inspiration shoot she shared with us this morning. Using balloons, glue and twine, you can also make these lanterns for your wedding – and then bring it home and use it as your very own mid century lampshade. What you will need are: balloons, glue, yarn, tray for glue, corn starch 1/2 cup of Corn starch, 1/4 cup of Warm water, clear fast drying spray paint, hanging lamp cord or fishing line (depending on your desired final product), and a lighting kit if you’re looking for a fully functional lantern. Jessica recommends using a sharpie to mark on the inflated balloon how much room you need to leave for the lighting cord. She also recommends coating the balloon with vaseline prior to wrapping the yarn coated with glue so it doesn’t stick on the balloon once it’s dry.
