As a jewelry designer, I end up with a LOT of earrings that don't sell. That's fine with me, they end up becoming part of my own accessories wardrobe! But I need a good way to store them that keeps them from getting tangled or lost. I used to have a chest of drawers with a top pullout section for jewerly, but I really prefer being able to see all my choices at once.
Here's a post from OnSugar blog Poor Girl's Guide : Keep earrings organized and create a work of art. A window screen earring holder is the perfect accent for a wall or dresser. Keeping the jewelry box clean is another added bonus.
Summer brings out the travel bug in me. I start dreaming of the beautiful places I’ve been and the locations I still hope to visit. My initial idea for this project was to create a roadmap of one of my favorite travel destinations. I thought a subtle tray celebrating a place I love would be a fun daily reminder of my dreamy locale.
After seeing this perforated brass pendant lamp by Holly Rose , I decided I must take a class in metalsmithing — it seems so cool! I’ve just come around to brass recently, and now I love it! Holly has given simple brass sheets a whole new look by cutting out a fun polka dot pattern and turning them into a double-tiered chandelier for her hallway. You may remember Holly’s love of gilded home decor from her awesome “carmageddon-inspired” bedroom wall DIY we posted a while back. She’s clearly on a roll with the gold, and I like where it’s going. Thanks for sharing, Holly!
Today’s DIY is for all you girls out there – like me – who can’t seem to keep your jewelry organized :) I’ve always loved how our stores display accessories, particularly the wooden jewelry boards . Our Farmington FP girls put together this awesome and thorough tutorial on how to make one! It’s a bit long, so click “read more” to view all of the steps. What you need:
Are you sick of shuffling around your makeup drawer? When my good friend and fellow Beauty Shayna L. lamented on her jumbled beauty collection, we decided to de-clutter her cosmetic chaos and get a little crafty. After reading about blogger Laura's ingenious Makeup Magnet Board , we knew this nifty beauty organizer was the solution for Shayna's stash. This magnet board is surprisingly easy to make and really fun.
Don’t throw away those old light bulbs just yet! I have a fun, easy DIY for you that will brighten up your home decor or workspace :) A little while back I found this image on tumblr and immediately saved it to my inspiration folder: I gathered a couple of light bulbs and got to work! I found this DIY to be very simple, but it requires working with glass so you definitely need to be careful.
The friendship bracelets that Honestly WTF made at our FNO event were beautiful and a true symbol of what free people stands for. They’re unbelievably quite simple to make and FUN! They’re perfect for a quiet night in with your girlfriends. just sit around the table, chit chat, and proceed with these instructions – the outcome, a generous gift to give to your closet friend. We loved them and we hope you do too!
Growing up, I kept a daily journal. I always enjoyed looking back at previous entries to see what had changed over the course of a year. These days, I can’t seem to find the time to journal, but I do try to jot down a little note from each day on my perpetual calendar/journal. The idea is very simple — flip to the current date and at the end of the day, write down something that happened. Some days it is big things like “Annie took her first steps.”
Add a little autumnal flair to your fall wardrobe with this rustic tree branch tote! This sturdy piece is great for carting daily necessities on your commute or for more outdoorsy tasks like packing a picnic or carrying camping supplies. The bag itself features a basic construction that can be adapted and used with any type of handle, so if the branches aren’t quite your thing, it’s easy to make fabric straps instead. Look for nice, straight branches that have fallen from trees in your local park or woods or, if you can’t find any, check at a floral supply shop. Let’s get sewing! — Brett Bara
It feels like every year, from Labor Day onward, the days and weeks fly by, and suddenly, the very busy holiday season is upon us! Feeling inspired by memories of back-to-school shopping, getting our supplies organized and anticipating the jam-packed months ahead, we made this very simple greeting card organizer. So many times in the past, we have been delayed a day or a week (or, um, a month . . . ) in sending a gift because we weren’t prepared with a birthday or baby card on hand to include with the package. With this little caddy, we’re going to collect cards all year and make sure each category is always stocked. — bbbcraft sisters Read the full how-to after the jump!
Summer is waning, and since I am a diehard autumnal girl, I’d usually be very excited by now. But I have to be honest — this lush and vibrant pallet vertical garden is making me want to stay in summer for another month or two. There have been many pallet projects and many vertical garden projects, but none combine the two elements as well as this tutorial developed by Fern Richardson of Life on the Balcony and recreated by Steph of the local spoon . I like this so much, I might have to squeeze it in before I focus entirely on fall projects. — Kate Have a DIY project you’d like to share?
