Let me start out with a warning or sorry of some sort. The warning is because I have never done a Tutorial before, so I hope this is helpful and easy to follow. The sorry is for how horrible my nails look. I promise I did them after looking through these pics.
Each week, listeners determine the Top Ten Songs chart playlist based on which songs are streamed and downloaded the most from the previous week’s posts. While the Top 10 playlist highlights the most popular songs, it does not represent all of the terrific music that is published on IRC each week. In fact, there are many great songs that don’t make it on the Top 10 because there are usually more than ten songs posted in a given week.
This is the most beautiful felt project we’ve seen. Strips of felt are wrapped around each other with hot glue to create this amazing swirled effect. What a great project for a snowed-in weekend and a movie marathon with the family. The kids could even help cut strips and decide on color combination while you operate the hot glue gun. Would you attempt something like this? Keep reading to see more pictures and find out where to find more details about this beautiful felt project!
My birthday is on June 17th, which, when you're a kid, is a pretty great day for a birthday. You never have to go to school, the activity options are endless, and your party can always include a squirt gun fight. Related Video: But, each year I also get another special, seasonal gift.
I’ve always had a penchant for sunshine in a jar. Doesn’t the very phrase itself, “sunshine in a jar,” roll off your tongue and fill your mouth with magic? While I’ve never yet found myself a sunshine in a jar, I think we may have just concocted it in our kitchen tonight. In this simple recipe, a basic white cake is turned into a slew of bright colors, baked to perfection, then topped with a creamy white frosting. Cakes baked in jars can be topped with traditional metal canning lids and stored in the fridge for up to five days. They make a great treat to ship to someone, so long as you can ensure delivery to it’s final destination within 3 days.

When I first spotted these gorgeous card holders/wallets my jaw dropped. I love the aesthetic of them, and the ‘bunting’ of leather scraps is so genius. Plus they’re handmade and super affordable! My cards would surely be lucky to reside in such a piece.
A cheap and easy way to make fabric people won't believe you made... Recently while working on a special Burdastyle project I stumbled upon some of the most beautiful fabric I had ever seen! Rows of scalloped tulle sewn together in layers to create this amazing scale-like illusion...I _had_ to have it and for half off of $40 a yd, I could sacrifice eating if it meant I could have just one yard!
This striped gathered skirt is my latest sewing project. I finished it a couple weeks ago but never got around to taking photos of it. I based it off this tutorial which was a great start but I had to figure out a lot on my own. In theory, it was a step up from the elastic waist skirt but in reality it was about five steps up and therefore kind of over my head (i.e. the ‘invisible zipper’ in the back is anything but invisible).I used a medium weight fabric from ikea which gave it some nice body. Last weekend I wore it out for the first time and kept on having flashes from that scene in Parent Trap where Hayley Mills #1 is dancing around with half a skirt on and frilly undies peaking out (that’s one of the best scenes in the movie, right?). Except my undies were not nearly as cute.
Home » Hey, parentals! That glorious event we've been eagerly awaiting all summer is almost upon us. That's right, I mean back-to-school time! (Holding for applause.) This week, Craft Apparent celebrates with a project that assures that this year, our kids' lunch is in the bag!
School is starting and that means lots of new things: a new teacher, new clothes, and new school supplies. We thought we'd add to all the excitement by making a new re-usable, totally washable lunch bag! Materials To make one 10-inch tall by 5-inch wide by 3-inch deep lunch bag: Making the Panels
There was a time — and maybe we’re still in it — when almost every stylish home contained a vase of craspedia, also known as “Billy Balls,” “Billy Buttons,” and a few other terms I’m not aware of. And why not? Craspedia are a very cool-looking flower, after all; definitely a great choice for mid-century modern fans, with those long, skinny stems and graphic yellow balls. I have a bunch of them in my home as well, and I do love them.
We've talked about using paper decorations to punch up a last minute party , but there are ways that you can incorporate paper into your everyday décor as well. My favorite paper creations of late are tissue paper cherry blossoms, which are as pretty as they are easy to make. A few weeks ago I was charged with the task of decorating a ballroom for my daughter's school auction.
As I start this post I am giggling (and I think my mom would have a good chuckle too). Something you need to know about me sooner rather than later is that I am NOT very organized . I usually put stuff away in 'a-place-I-will-definitely-find-it' . Needless to say, I never find the stuff or will find it again when we move. One thing that always piles up in various areas of our house are our bills and receipts. Because my husband and I both get them I'm never sure what can go in the trash and what can't - so I make small piles in random places.
I loved how my Valentine's Day garland and wreath looked so I decided to make another Valentine's Day decoration. In our living room we have a big blank wall that is patiently waiting for us to finish the wall art we plan on hanging. I decided to use that space and try to make a simple, cheap wall art.
