Well we were in the same boat so we decided to round up 20 different awesome at home projects you can do. Anything from soda pop cap lids to spoons and more.
Palette pingpong no21 - the green gal It’s my turn to be the palette pingpongee! Kirsty has challenged me with a lovely little sweet image you can see on ginger and george, and I love that the colour palette created from it is not the usual pinks and reds associated with love and Valentine’s Day. But, because Valentine’s Day is fast approaching (Monday in case you have managed not to know) and I thought I’d be helpful. For anyone who hasn’t bought a card yet, panic not. Simply download and print out this one! Oh I’m all about the printable love at the moment!
We recently shared this fun project over at Infarrantly Creative. The goal was to come up with a gift idea for under $10. We managed to stay under budget and are very pleased with the outcome. The Love Notes Box
I posted a picture about 1 week ago on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter of me cutting glass using just string. I got LOT’S of requests for a tutorial on how I DID THIS! So here it is.
We love using chalkboards as backdrops for displays and parties (like this one here!). So we were super excited to learn that you can create your own custom colors-and it's really easy! We first learned how from Martha Stewart whose tutorial you can read here.
Learn Beading · Princess Wire-wrapped Ring This ring is just too pretty to be so fast and easy! It’s an irresistible project you’re sure to love. Let’s get started! You’ll only need a few tools, so don’t worry about lengthy cleanup with this one (a nice bonus!). Grab a crystal clear or colored Swarovski crystal, a ring mandrel, wire cutters and some 24 gauge wire.
You can make this lovely ring (or a version of this design) yourself, using just some basic tools, wire and a lip balm! Yes, in this tutorial I am going to demonstrate that just basic beginner tools and a wire from Michael’s can go a long way! Wouldn’t this ring make a great present??
UPDATE:I've made a video tutorial version so you can see how it's folded:[link] I've decided to turn some of my old tutorials into simple one image versions like this because people asked for easier versions they could reblog on Pinterest/Tumblr etc. This one is on a really simple way to make a ribbon rose which you can then use for hair accessories, clothing, cosplay, anything really! Hope you guys enjoy it, let me know if you have requests or think I could improve in the layout etc ^_^ The original tutorial I wrote is here: [link] Ribbon Rose Tutorial by ~VioletLeBeaux on deviantART
You’re going to love today’s DIY project so much that you’re going to want to start tearing pages out from old books tonight! Remember the storybook roses in Shanna + Richard’s wedding? Sweet, right? Floral designer, Cathy Brim of Bloom Floral Design created the elegant branch bouquets seen in their ceremony using Valerie Lloyd’s paper roses design, and now we’re jumping-out-of-the-pages excited that Valerie is sharing her DIY secrets with you!
Well, we are dusting off our obligatory black armband over in Beyond Beyond land for one of our most favourite shops ever – Early Bright (mega sad face) they have been the purveyors of some delicious and inspirational bling that is more art than jewellery. And we just want to share one of the most beautiful pieces every a wish in a jar. We used to shake dandelion bushes when we were little in the vain belief that we would get a Barbie dream house, Michael Jackson tickets, the ability to breakdance overnight (although we never progressed beyond being able to do backspins), millionaire moolah, or our favourite wish was that we had been dropped off at the wrong house (sorry parental units) and we were really the offspring of some family with the financial clout of Daddy Warbucks and the Rothschild’s combined.
You should all know by now that we are all about stacking bracelets on our wrists. The more, the better. In fact . . . the most, the best! With that being said, we’ll show you how to master a version of the ever so popular wrap bracelet. It’s so simple and addicting, you’ll soon be churning out these wristlets with your eyes closed. Clearly this arm party train isn’t stopping and it’s about time you get on board!
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.
Posted July 1, 2011 | ♥ 74 Comments Happy Friday, lovelies! We spotted a really fun, reallllly easy DIY 52 Things I Love About You project for your spouse-to-be. While you’re busy with handmade wedding centerpieces, bridesmaid accessories, and other fun projects, we thought you might want to make a gifty for your groom to give on the big day, too. After all – throughout this crazy planning process and the five million questions about table linens, chicken or fish, and color schemes your groom deserves a little hey-honey-I-love-you-and-cant-wait-to-marry-you present. This ’52 Things I Love About You’ craft (and images) are via Craftster (spotted here) and the supplies are easy to find: a deck of cards, binder rings, xylon stickers (or glue), two scrabble tiles with both of your initials, and a printer.
It’s been awhile since our last bracelet DIY. I don’t know about you, but our wrists have been begging for another colorful addition for months now. So after playing with some materials that were already on hand, we’ve created a tutorial for a braided bead bracelet, which is a not so distant cousin of the hex nut and wrap bracelet. Because honestly, you can never have too many . . . You’ll need: Cut the waxed linen cord into a 26″ and 19″ piece.
