The Hipster Home » Blog Archive » How to Make a Tiny Terrarium in a Light Bulb Ahoy there Hipster Homers! I’m Julie and I’m the very first guest blogger on this fine site. Today’s project involves breaking stuff, plants, found objects, and miniatures. Tunnel Vision I know you are invited to at least one wedding this summer. Bring your camera. This is a neat way to present a special wedding picture. It's an old paper trick call a tunnel card. I like to frame it in a shadow box and give it to the married couple. DIY Photo Canvas Hey there! So, I have seen so many cool DIY photo canvas projects on Pinterest and I had to do one of my own! My son is playing his first season of tackle football and I have taken a ton of pictures! I thought he would love to show them off in his room so I came up with this! It was so quick, easy and cheap! I used scrap wood and only paid for the 8×10 prints!

page corner bookmarks This project comes to you at the request of Twitterer @GCcapitalM. I used to believe that a person could never have too many books, or too many bookmarks. Then I moved into an apartment slightly larger than some people’s closets (and much smaller than many people’s garages) and all these beliefs got turned on their naïeve little heads. But what a person can always look for more of is really cool unique bookmarks.

DIY Under Cabinet Lazy Susan {Rotating Organizer Stand Like many, I find the storage space I do have quickly fills up; no matter how much I seem to have, I always seem to never have enough. In an effort to maximize the storage space underneath my little guys bath vanity, I put together this simple lazy susan using just a couple purchased supplies and few items around the house. I love the fact that the double tier fills the open space in the tall base cabinets which is usually left unused. The finished project actually turned out cuter than expected and can be used for a multitude of purposes {such as a rotating dessert tray or condiment stand} I almost feel bad putting it underneath the sink.

Weblog Altered matchboxes are easy and fun to make!

These little boxes are approximately the size of standard, store-bought, 32-count matchboxes (1.5″ x 2″ x .5″). Tiny Polaroid Magnets Hi there! It’s felt like forever since I’ve last blogged, and has felt like an eternity since I’ve done anything crafty and nifty. Since my morning sickness has gone into full speed (yes, we’re expecting our third this fall!) I haven’t felt like myself. But nothing like inspiration to wake one out of a reverie — or nightmare, in my constantly sick state. I came across these DIY Pantone chip magnets on How About Orange and wanted to do something similar.

Repurpose old pots & make a Terra Cotta Mosaic Pumpkin Cinderella had a little magic going on with her pumpkin, and frankly, I think Kathleen George worked a little magic with this mosaic pumpkin, too. Kathleen’s Terra Cotta Mosaic Pumpkin is perfect for fall decorating. It’s beautiful indoors, of course, and you can safely display it outside, too. It’s made with a ball of STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam, so it’s weather safe and won’t be affected by rain or snow (yikes, did I just say “snow”?). Drink Can Tinwork Tinwork Embossed tinwork is sometimes used to decorate rustic style photo or mirror frames, or just to make decorative items such as Christmas tree decorations. The metal used is usually thicker (tinplate) and is normally worked with hammered tools - I wanted to try to get a similar effect, but with a bit less effort.
