Toilet Paper Roll Wall Art ∙ How To by Lauren M Toilet Paper Roll Wall Art ∙ How To by Lauren M A faux metal piece made of recycled toilet paper rolls Well the walls in my room have been looking awfully bare recently, so I figured something needed to be done! Since my bank account is awfully bare as well, I decided to do something with what I had around the house. I've been saving toilet paper roles for a while with another project in mind, but this is what I settled on.
DIY Felted Wool "Billy Buttons" DIY Felted Wool "Billy Buttons" UPDATE: Click here for a new post with troubleshooting tips. In case you didn't catch my guest post on Young & Crafty, here it is! While making felted wool beads for my DIY'd necklace, the yellow wool beads I was felting started to really look like stylized Yellow Craspedia (small, spherical flowers also known as “Billy Buttons” or “Woollyheads”). Inspired, I made some extra felted wool beads, pierced them with cloth covered floral wire and made an arrangement in an inexpensive West Elm vase. Scroll down for the how-to. Supplies:

A couple months ago my daughter asked me if I could paint a mural on her wall. She wanted some sort of tree branch with some birds as well. We scoured the internet and found a few designs that were nice, but none of them were exactly what she wanted. So together we came up with this design and I went to work. The first step was to draw out the design. Tree Branch and Bird Mural Tree Branch and Bird Mural

Style by Eva Diva: Fabric Butterfly Wall Art
i fell to the peer pressure of emails and comments and actual face to face conversations of "how about ornaments? why haven't you done any ornaments?" well, i did in fact have one planned before this one, but i felt like a sewing project was in order since i've not really shown you much of that lately. no worries more of it is coming. but for now here's a fabric ornament that will be a great teacher or neighbor gift. or heck, add them to your tree. :) for one ornament materials needed: *1/4 yard fabric *mason jar (wide mouth) or a cup will work just the same. *pencil * ribbon (around 8") *hot glue gun V and Co: how to: fabric ornament V and Co: how to: fabric ornament

Említettem, hogy a Kifőztük szeptemberi számában én is kaptam egy oldalt. Aki követi a blogot, az tudja, hogy vonzódásom a vécépapír-gurigák iránt töretlen és olthatatlan.... Ezért amikor a cikket terveztem, valahogy egyértelmű volt, hogy papírgurigás témájú ötletről fogok írni, ráadásul ez az az alapanyag, ami tényleg mindenhol megtalálható. Szerettem volna valami igazán dekoratívat készíteni - majd Ti eldöntitek, hogy ez sikerült-e. :-) A lenti leírás tehát megtalálható a Kifőztük szeptemberi számában - érdemes elolvasni az újságot, szuper recepteket találhattok benne.Amire szükségünk lesz a papírgurigákból készült képhez: sok üres papírguriga, fekete akrilfesték, képkeret, hobbiragasztó vagy pillanatragasztó. Első lépésként a papírgurigákat ellapítjuk, és négy egyenlő csíkra vágjuk (ha vécépapír-gurigákat használunk). Falikép papírgurigákból

Book Page and Cardboard Kleenex Box Ornament Here is a tutorial on how to take an ordinary Kleenex box and make it into an ornament. I start by cutting 6 strips of cardboard, cut with an exacto knife and ruler (for the Kleenex box ornament I cut it .375 inches wide by 9 inches long). Then using 5 strips interlock them to make a star. The sixth strip is the center ring to interlock. Please look at the video tutorial (part 1 and part 2) for full instructions.

Origami Star Happy Birthday Bunting I think my mom loves my blog. She's never actually seen it, but I think she loves it because all of my old belongings (what she would call junk) that have been stored in her garage is slowly being transported to my house. This "junk", crafts that I made in high school and college, has found new life with my blog. She recently handed me a box filled with stars that I folded in high school.
