DIY guide - draped skirt

Jeg har brugt et gammelt tørklæde fra H&M, men har I ikke et tørklæde i den stil, kan man købe et langt stykke jersey stof i en stofbutik meget billigt. Mit tørklæde er 2,5 meter langt og 1,5 meter bredt og så har jeg foldet det på midten, så det kun er 75 cm bredt. Hvis I køber et stykke stof der er lidt tykkere, behøver I ikke folde det på midten, bare det ikke er gennemsigtig, of course :) 31 Insanely Easy And Clever DIY Projects.

Natural Pools or Natural Swimming Ponds (NSPs) Let nature clean the water...

Natural Pools or Swimming Ponds

Chemical-free water garden and swimming pool. The plant portion, or regeneration zone, is separated from the swimming area by the wall seen a few inches below the water’s surface. The pools have skimmers and pumps that circulate the water through the regeneration zone and back into the swimming area. The aquatic plants filter out contaminants and use nutrients from the water as food which helps prevent algae. Then rocks, such as granite river rock or haydite, to which friendly bacteria attach, act as biological filters. There are many options as to design. A gradual slope contains the plants, gravel and loamy sand, a wall keeps them separate from the swimming area. Vacuum but twice a year and tend to the plants as needed.

Bottle (w)rap. I drink a lot of wine.

Bottle (w)rap

And end up with a lot of empty wine bottles that are oh so pretty, it breaks my heart to have to junk them with the raddi- walla. I've been trying to find all sorts of utility excuses to hang on to them - wate bottles, plant holders and what have you. And now I have the perfect non-utility excuse to collect some more! Used: Coloured raffia from Le Papier Empty clearglass wine bottles (Sula Zinfandel -which is incidentally my personal favourite) Heavy duty glue (I have this stick of industrial glue that solidifies when it cools but I guess Fevicol would do as well) Starting at the bottom (cos the top's a bit tricky) starting winding the raffia tightly around the bottle, pausing to add a bit of adhesive every now and then.

DIY Braided Bead Bracelet - Honestly WTF - StumbleUpon. It’s been awhile since our last bracelet DIY.

DIY Braided Bead Bracelet - Honestly WTF - StumbleUpon

I don’t know about you, but our wrists have been begging for another colorful addition for months now. So after playing with some materials that were already on hand, we’ve created a tutorial for a braided bead bracelet, which is a not so distant cousin of the hex nut and wrap bracelet. Because honestly, you can never have too many . . . You’ll need: Cut the waxed linen cord into a 26″ and 19″ piece. Tie a knot about half an inch down from the loops. Start braiding the strands. Push the bead against the base of the braid, and cross the left strand over the middle. Keep a finger at the base of the braid, holding the beads in their place and keeping the braid tight. Finish the bracelet with another inch of braided cord, measuring it against the wrist. Allison lehman : show + tell / 30 Day Drawing Challenge.
