New Uses for Old Things: Kids Edition

Crafty Nest

To say that choosing paint colors was difficult for me would be an understatement. Each color looked completely different depending on lighting, which I found to be extremely frustrating—especially now that days are short and sunlight is limited. Two months, 22 paint samples, and multiple splotchy walls later, I finally picked the colors I want on my walls. Read more » I’m sorry to have neglected Crafty Nest for so long.

A delicate-looking wreath that creates the magical effect of candles flickering in the snow is easy to make and surprisingly sturdy. Wreath frames are strung with twinkling lights that are nestled in frothy, doilylike paper bouquet holders known as "Biedermeiermanschetten."

Tutorial: How to Make a Pomander Flower Ball

Tutorial: How to Make a Pomander Flower Ball Pomanders, or “Flower Kissing Balls” are gorgeous floral decorations at parties and weddings. It’s name is from the French pomme d’ambre or apple of amber – a ball of perfume. They were carried to protect against infections and diseases by modifying bad smells. Interesting huh? Well, today they’re used as a beautiful, hand-made decoration! My sweet friend Paula of Frog Prince Paperie (who I first met when she made a birthday banner for my friend’s son) has made a tutorial for these darling floral balls!
DIY Leather Bow Cuff Back in January wen I went thrift shopping with a bunch of awesome ALT ladies, I picked up a really rad bow-inspired belt. I’m not sure why I never included a pic of the belt here because it’s awesome. You can sort of see it in this outfit, but the lighting isn’t great. DIY Leather Bow Cuff

Have you ever enjoyed a bottle of wine with loved ones, and then kept the cork as a memento? Well, we've done that for every bottle of wine for the past 2 years and collected them in a huge, tall, clear vase - which was now overflowing. (We weren't kidding when we said during the last post that we loved red wine!) So I decided to make a corkboard out of them.

Make-up Magnet Board

We all know with craft blogs that original ideas are often hard to come by, we find ideas we love and make them our own but we didn't come up with the idea ourselves.

Want a cute, simple decoration that you can make in minutes? These paper lanterns are perfect for the upcoming holiday season or as an everyday decoration! What a great way to add color to a room or to your holiday table :) Make a bunch and string them together as a garland, or put a bunch in a bowl, or in a hurricane glass in a bathroom or guestroom. You could also mail them (flat, before unfolding them ;)) to a friend as a fun "Merry Christmas" gift with quick instructions on how to unfold them. I decided to use holiday paper, but was thinking these would also be fun as everyday decorations with leftover scraps of scrapbooking paper or found/vintage paper.

Tuesday Tutorial: Paper Lantern Ornaments

Craft Meet-Up, Craftivity For our first meet-up the craft of choice was PLASTI-DIP , a rubberizing paint, normally used to coat tool handles and such. Inspired by beautiful plasti-dipped origami; my heart raced with the possibilities of all the chincey knick knacks that could be turned chic with one dip. Fellow creative Kelsey from Minted Life saw the same vision and a craft meet-up date was set. Fun with plasti-dip « Fellow Creatives
