not martha - to make: papier-mache easter eggs - StumbleUpon For Easter I made papier-mache polka dotted eggs. I created them using small water balloons and tissue paper then I filled them with candy and toys and sealed them shut. The egg can hold a surprising amount of candy and the tissue paper seems delicate making for a delightfully heavy and yet fragile object, much like real egg.

DIY: Colored Pencil Jewelry - StumbleUpon Note from Design Mom: I asked Kate of Mini Eco to create a Back to School themed project for us to try. I think making beads out of colored pencils is brilliant! Wouldn’t these beads be fun for your elementary school-ers to string for a class project?

My husband and I both have cell phones. And both of us have phone chargers. And that means lots of obnoxious cords. You never know when one of us may be moving phone cords around, to give our phones an extra charge while we’re chatting away……… or trying to charge our phones up before running errands or something. Needless to say, those phone cords seem to be everywhere…..and are generally in the way and hanging all over the floor.

Fabric | Poinsettia | Free Pattern &Tutorial at CraftPassion.com I am obsessed to Poinsettia, I don’t know why, but I just love this red leaves flower that brings festive mood to my home every end of the year. Last year, I crochet some poinsettia coasters which don’t really look like poinsettia except for the color tone… but they really get me into the mood of Christmas.

lollies - a little ART CANT HURT - StumbleUpon a perfect rainy day thing to do! the colors make any day better! how to make LOLLIESyou will need: jolly ranchers, candy sticks, parchment paper, foil & a cookie sheet 1) lay a piece of foil on cookie sheet. cover foil with a piece of parchment paper.2) unwrap candies and place side by side on parchment paper in your choice of color & flavor combinations. use three candies together for extra large lollies, and only two candies together for regular lollies.3) heat candies in oven for about 5 minutes at 200 degrees. keep a close eye on the candies and take them out as soon as they've barely melted together. if you leave them in too long they will melt too much and you won't be able to put a stick into the lollie. alter the cook time accordingly.4) carefully take cookie sheet out of oven. immediately lay candy sticks into place on melted candies. slowly twirl in melted candy to coat the stick and so it will hold in the lollie. they're hot!

Girly duct tape wallet/clutch - StumbleUpon

Girly duct tape wallet/clutch - StumbleUpon At the base of this wallet are two sheets of duct tape. I've found that the easiest way to make one of these sheets is to start with a piece of loose leaf and cover that in duct tape on both sides. that way you can get nice straight lines. It also adds a bit more stability. -10"x9.5" This one is to be folded into three sections. The first is with the cards, the second is the pocket for the money, and the third it the flap with the velcro. You can see these on the finished wallet.
