Recycle Tutorial: Woven Rag Rug

Brenna’s paper capiz shell chandelier. I love wax paper for packing lunches; i wrap sandwiches in a piece of wax paper and tie it like a present with a little cotton string. it’s so much better looking than a plastic bag. wax paper comes in handy for more things than i realized, like rolling it up to use for a funnel, or how about rubbing a piece of wax paper on the top of your shower curtain rod to cut down on that terrible screeching in the morning…problem solved. but who knew that if you iron layers of wax paper together it looks remarkably similar to a capiz shell? This discovery brought me to today’s project: the faux capiz chandelier. hung over your dining table, or outside at an outdoor dinner party, it is an easy solution to a dramatic light fixture and will look phenomenal in either setting. i hope you enjoy making your own as much i did! -brenna CLICK HERE for the full how-to after the jump!

What you will need: • Toilet paper or paper towel tubes • Scissors • Duct tape • Wax paper • Small bucket or disposable container to make the recipe • ¾ cup of warm water • 1 ½ cups Plaster of Paris • 2-3 tablespoons of tempera paint • Paper bag or a “mess mat” ** we made six tubes of chalk – we simply doubled the above recipe Step 1: If you are using paper towel tubes, cut each tube in half, so it is roughly the length of a toilet paper roll tube.

Step 2: Cover one end of each tube with duct table to hold the contents within. Step 3: Cut as many pieces of wax paper as you have tubes. Heart-Shaped Soap - Martha Stewart Holiday & Seasonal Crafts. 39 DIY Gifts You'd Actually Want To Receive.

Sweetheart Bow T-shirt Tutorial

I’m really digging them. I’m seeing bows pop up in the most fashionable of places like Anthropologie, J.Crew, Ann Taylor Loft and Urban Outfitters. As soon as I saw this bow pillow tutorial, I knew I needed to have a shirt with a giant bow on it. I bought two DownEast Basics v-neck shirts and transformed them into what you see above. The project cost a total of $5 and 45 minutes. To make this t-shirt, you’ll need two shirts; one of which needs to be v-neck. Grab the extra tee and set the good tee aside for later. Fold the extra tee in half lengthwise and cut just below the armpit and about 3 inches above the hem.

Grab the middle section and align side seams together. Unfold the extra two inches and cut a 4×6 inch rectangle. Fold both bow pieces in half lenghtwise with right sides in. Turn fabric right side out and center the seams along the middle of the back side so they won’t show when you assemble your bow. Scratch-Off Save-the-Date How-To.
