Roundup: 15 Awesome and Easy DIY Mason Jar Projects » Curbly | DIY Design Community « Keywords: DIY, Craft, Inspiration, Mason JarsAs Chris mentioned a few weeks ago, mason jars have exploded (again?) onto the craft and DIY scenes. You can't look anywhere without seeing some crazy new use for them! As it stands, we're embracing the trend here at Curbly.
Today’s Mason Jar Sunday comes in the form of a DIY guest post from one of my favorite fellow bloggers, Liz Marie ! If you haven’t yet met her in this wonderful blogging world, go say hello ! All photos in this post are credited to Liz. I’ll let Liz take it away… One of my favorite elements for interior design costs less than two dollars at your local grocery store. That’s right, Mason Jars.
My cats are bored. If you're honest with yourself, yours probably are, too--let's face it, the average urban dwelling doesn't offer much in the way of excitement for felines genetically predispositioned to hunting in the jungle. So, in order to give them some exploration options (and because I thought it would be adorable), I decided to give them access to the top of my entertainment center from the back of one of my couches via a series of shelves spaced on the wall at with cat-navigatable spacing, aka a Cat Ladder.
How adorable is this ? Perfect to gift to a special teacher but also a for a nursery, child’s room or play room. It’s a very simple DIY project. out on a scrap piece of paper. over letter. individually to length using a sharp knife and cutting board
Last Friday, I mentioned there possibly was a tutorial in the works for little H.'s bag . It's been tested now over the weekend and she loves it - and so do I! So, here's a tutorial for a fancy ruffled messenger bag!
There were lots of fun little projects from my dining room redo that I have been anxious to share with you all! I started writing this post thinking that I could get it all in one long entry, but I think this is going to be a two-parter!! First up, I've had these little brass and lucite lamps for a long time now. They are sort of a little too...fancy for my taste, but I liked the scale in the room. I wanted the shades to have a little color and texture so I ordered some grasscloth wallpaper samples to use for covering the lamp shades. But, thankfully, the order got messed up, and I was able to find this grasscloth for $3/yd at a fabric store in Philadelphia (BTW, if you live anywhere near Philly, please go check out Fabric Row!
DIY Origami Brooch by Rolando Robinson for Honestly…WTF The inspiration behind this brooch derived from this video , by soul-pop group Quadron. Since origami is such a huge part of my art, I especially gravitated to this video with a huge liking for it. To begin this process, you must begin by making the components in which you will assemble at the end.
When Lisa and Jessica of Leyendecker confessed to us their love of DIYs, we immediately jumped at the opportunity to collaborate with the designing duo . Not only are we in love with their line, we are huge fans of the charming and talented ladies themselves. You can imagine how much fun we had spending the entire day crafting in their LA studio!
Last weekend was perfect. Mother's Day was lovely - Michael and the girls surprised me with a necklace I've been eying for a while and a gorgeous bunch of peonies. The arrangement was so pretty that I thought it was a good excuse to break out the camera and take some 'after shots' of my kitchen island that I've been meaning to share with you. This old dresser was one of the very first things Michael and I bought as a married couple. We got it for almost nothing at a thrift store in Arizona. It's been about 20 different colors over the years and the hardware's changed a half dozen times.
The moment we saw Phillip Lim ‘s Box Braid Collar Necklace , we were immediately overcome with a wave of nostalgia. Our memories of a neon, plastic box braid lanyard was suddenly transformed into a sophisticated leather jewelry component. Honestly, brilliant!
You should all know by now that we are all about stacking bracelets on our wrists. The more, the better. In fact . . . the most, the best!
