DIY Dixie Cup Garland. Aug 10 Cuteness alert coming right at you, but how fun is this little DIY project, guys?

DIY Dixie Cup Garland

I found the original inspiration on Pinterest (the ‘lamp shades’ were covered in Hallowe’en hued paper) but figured I’d give it a go using my fave hues. Wouldn’t this garland be absolutely fabulous for a bridal shower, an outdoor wedding and or even the most perfect addition to a nursery in lieu of a night light? Check out the awesome step by step photos below shot by the always wonderful Jenna. Craft on, beauties! Make your own dry erase board. A re you ready for maybe the easiest home craft ever? Awesome. Because today, I’m giving you a nifty, attractive little tool that NOT ONLY will make your kitchen, mud room, office or cubicle THAT MUCH more personal and chic, I’m also giving you the ability to ORGANIZE your LIFE. Naturally I’m talking about making a dry erase board. What you’ll need: – 1 frame – 1 piece of scrapbook paper The Steps: 1) Take the back off the frame and remove the gratuitous picture paper that came with the frame. 2) Flip that gratuitous picture paper over, so it just shows the white side. 3) Cut your scrapbook paper to fit the size of the frame. 4) Place the newly sized scrapbook paper against the glass, pretty side out. 5) Place the flipped over gratuitous picture paper in the frame, with the white side out. 6) Reattach the backside of the frame.

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!

Why it never occurred to me to turn such a beautifully designed item into a wall display as Kim has done here, I will never know, but I’m thankful she’s shown the way. A jewelry designer on the side, Kim needed a place to store her supplies and some of her finished pieces in her studio. This rustic toolbox provides the perfect tiny shelves to tuck things away, and looks much more unique and elegant than the standard pegboard or shelving solution. I may not have the exact same materials as Kim, but I’m definitely tempted to adapt her idea for a lovely display. Great work, Kim!
