How to cut glass

I got LOT’S of requests for a tutorial on how I DID THIS! So here it is. FINALLY! You will be able to learn how to cut glass. I want to warn you. It’s best to triple your yarn because it will burn longer! Soak it GOOD! I like to tie my yarn where I want my glass to “cut” then quickly pour polish remover over the string again. Get a big bowl with ice and water ready. VERY IMPORTANT! Slowly turn your bottle. You can’t let the flame go OUT then dunk it in the ice water. YAY!!! I reallly hope you enjoyed this tutorial because I had ALOT of requests for it! © Copyright jaderbombllc, All rights Reserved. Making DIY Coffee Filter Flowers: The Complete Guide.

If you’re looking for a cheap, simple and pretty DIY project for your wedding, coffee filter flowers could be just the thing! Photo via Just Simple Designs Who knew coffee filters could look so pretty? The great thing about coffee filter flowers is that they can be used in so many different ways, from decor (they’d make a mean ceremony backdrop) to centerpieces, place settings, wreaths and, if done in miniature, they’d look so sweet attached to escort cards or favor boxes!

You could even create a bunch of them, attach them to ribbon wrapped florist’s wire et voila! Dying Coffee Filters. Build a Rustic X Console. Craft Techniques Explained.

Color Theory 101: Selecting Yarns That Go Together

You could follow the colors suggested in the pattern sample… but you want to try something a little different. But how in the world do you pick a colors that go together? Color theory. That’s how! Most yarn lines contain a wide range of of colors. Whoa! But don’t fret. It’s not all of the yarns, of course! Most yarn companies design their colors of yarn with compatibility in mind. Fortunately, there’s a name for the art of picking colors that go together: color theory. There are three color schemes that, if followed, will create knock-your-socks-off color combos: analogous, complementary and split complementary.

Analogous Analogous colors are the ones that are next to each other on the color wheel: This scheme can work with any number of colors… pick two that are next to each other, three or four! Complementary I love using complementary colors. Split Complementary Related. DIY How To Make Instructions. Free Crafts Ebooks. Free Crafts Ebooks. Craft Recipes (Clay, Salt Dough, etc.)
