Posted by Melinda under Crafts  Comments Two years ago I made spice boxes for my friends as Christmas gifts. (Two years ago i didn’t have a craft blog, so I’ve got some catching up to do.)
I finally gave in and made marble magnets.
We are constantly impressed by the creativity and resourcefulness of our readers. Latest exhibit? This homemade wall-mounted spice rack David created for his kitchen. Read on for details on how he did it, and links to all the equipment you'd need to recreate this in your own kitchen. Here's how David and his girlfriend built this spice rack. We started by mounting a sheet of stainless steel (http://bit.ly/2iyLJV) to the wall, then gluing neodymium magnets to the tops of one piece canning lids (http://bit.ly/3lReef), filling the jars with our favorite spices, and voilà!
Here is my first step-by-step tutorial... and I made it an easy one. I made these blocks for my mom and mother-in-law for Christmas and they loved them, so I thought I'd share. They are easy, although time consuming.
A fun and easy project with a beautiful payoff. Learn how to make these Balloon Luminaries.
08.09.09 | by Erik Anderson Whether it’s product branding, package design or projects for ourselves, we’re pleased when we find a solution that’s very effective and creative, while keeping resources to a minimum. This idea is very inexpensive (Buy Kit Now $38).
Remember making designs on shrinkable plastic as a kid, then sticking them in the oven and watching them shrivel? The shrunken designs were fun to trade with friends as a kid, now they're fun to wear as adults. The crafting smarties at Photojojo devised a way to turn ordinary photos into wearable art that's reminiscent of the Shrinky Dinks many of us spent hours making back in the day. The supplies you'll need are easy to get and most of them you'll probably have on hand already.
3 - Machine sewing Start sewing from one side of the opening, and follow the line all around the body. For straight corners, sew all the way to the corner, make sure the needle is down (so the fabric stays in place) then raise the foot of the sewing machine, pivot the fabric around, lower the foot and start sewing again.
Artist Helen Nodding's experiment The burgeoning art of moss graffiti has made the rounds of the blogosphere in the past (including here on AT ), but in honor of DIY month, we wanted to pass on a recipe for trying it out at home. Eco-friendly or no, it still seems strange to paint on other people’s walls, but we love the idea of using this to artistic effect in our own garden. Turns out the instructions for making the “paint” that grows into moss are relatively simple...
The other week, my good friend Stephanie and I planned out a craft weekend.
