flower corsage for celebrating mom Being a mom sometimes isn’t the most glamorous job one can have. Being a mom sometimes means walking around with food or boogers on your shirt, and sometimes not getting into the shower till afternoon . we’re busy driving kids to school and activities, busy folding laundry, busy wiping away tears, busy reading bed time stories, busy making it all better, busy cooking meals, busy keeping house, busy cleaning toilets. Yes, not so glamorous indeed, but probably the most important. We are the ones who help mold, uplift, and carry our children when they need us to. No sewing involved, just hot glue and a few materials and you will be able to have this beautiful flower to put on your cardigan or to decorate your purse, so that you can remember how beautiful you really are…booger smeared shirt and all. supplies:one yard of satin ribbon (thicker size)one small circle of feltone pin for the backhot glue here's your petal. this is what you will do with all 12 petals. ENJOY your beautiful flower!

V and Co how to: jersey knit bracelet i don't know what it is about this time of year that makes me just want to have my bare feet in the sand, be watching the sun setting into the ocean, and breathing in the warm salty air of the i get older, more and more i find myself missing that place i used to go to almost as a teen. (my skin doesn't miss it. as a matter of fact, i now wish i listened more and DID put SPF on my face...hindsight is 20/20). my mom calls me from her walk on the beach almost every morning...*sigh*yeah, i get a little homesick around this time of the year. heck on my pinterest my "dreaming of summer" has the most pictures in it. ah yes. i miss my ocean. case in point. this bracelet, brought a flood of memories, not because i used to have one like it but because i can totally see me wearing it by the beach, not caring that it's gotten salty and wet, because i can totally make another one in like less than 5 minutes flat when i get home. *sigh* okay... *cut off excess tails!

: the perfect add on fabric flower remember a while back i made my daughter a new flower hair clip? you all asked for a tutorial then.then i posted about the textured pillow i made... you all asked how i made the flowers...well here you go. the basics on how to make the perfect add on flower to add just about anywhere you want to get a little extra pizazz. depending on how big you want your flower you will either add in width or take away in width. for this particular flower (the biggest one found on my textured pillow) i cut out my strip of fabric at 2 1/2 inches. your length should be the length of a bolt of fabric (usually around 45 inches in length) at the end of my strip i cut off a little so that i had some left over for my fabric button that would be placed in the middle. first you are going to thread your needle (make a knot at the end of your thread) and you are going to do a loose running stitch at one side of your strip of fabric. do this the whole length of your strip. sew on your finished fabric button. have fun!

A bit of green :: Crafts :: Plastic Cup Lamp Now that my university is closed for winter holidays, I finally have more free time to do all the crafty things I’ve been wanting to. One of these is a lamp made from plastic cups I’ve seen at taf, the art foundation, in the Monastiraki region in the center of Athens. When I first saw it at taf, I was amazed; I looked closely and I couldn’t believe my eyes! The object itself is so peculiar, modern and alien-like it could be in any design exhibition. With my best friend’s birthday coming up, I decided to make it myself and give it to her as a gift. Disclaimer: There have been some concerns about the safety of this construction (see the comment of user “when” below for example). I only needed a couple of things: 200-250 large plastic cups (recyclable, at least )600-700 staplesa staplera lamp socket, lamp cord and plug – mine came from a broken IKEA lamp! That’s all you will need. Start stapling the cups together as shown. Staple again and again and again… Until your lamp goes from this…

DIY: Wearable words When I was looking around for tutorials on making paper beads, I found some really striking "book beads" and accessories, now collected in this post. I understand (after all the browsing) that you can make really durable "beads" easily ... very little time, skill or money required. Woohoo! Who doesn't need more jewelery? (UPDATE 6/12: See the follow up post for more wordy accessories) First, this wonderful necklace. Inexpensive, easy scrap-paper earrings? Need a little more inspiration? fabric bow pasta something's cooking in the kitchen!can you see what it is? go on take a closer look. mmm garden flavored bow pasta! cook it.... drain it... and serve it! what you will need:*5 by 5 squares of fabric in greens, reds, yellows, creams, and orange.each square makes two fabric bow pastas. take your 5 by 5 square. fold it in half...cut at your fold. fold it in half again and cut at that fold as well. sew around your edges take a needle and thread and do a running stitch through the middle. pull tight and wrap around a few times the thread in the middle and tie a knot in the back. bon appetit!

DIY Faux Curled Rosewood Wreath {Made From Rolled Recycled Book Pages} I have seen various versions of Faux Rosewood Wreaths in just about every store and catalog for the upcoming season; most with a price tag running upwards of $40 or more. Some are crafted of paper and other of real wood shavings. Last year I made a few rolled flower gift toppers from recycled book pages and they remind me so much of the curled wood roses I thought they would make a good substitute. {with a much lower price tag} Materials Needed:Foam Wreath FormRecycled Book PagesLots of Hot GlueRibbon to Hang The full step by step tutorial I posted last year can be found {here}.Basically you layer three book pages together and draw a spiral circle. Starting with the outside of the spiral, roll the paper inward to create the flower shape. Give the wreath form a light coat of white {or light color} spray paint to help camouflage any see-through spaces. It seriously takes quite a few roses to fill the entire wreath, however I think the finished project has such a unique look. {Simply Lovely}

Simple cercle brisé Pendentif plaque bleu et par TheBrokenPlate how to: just in time for fall flower it feels like it's been ages since i did a "sewing" tutorial project. i swear i've been sewing as a matter of fact if feels like i've been running a marathon at times. but nothing that i've shared i guess. so here's one that i seriously just made yesterday just because i felt like it.what you will need:*a strip of polyester fabric cut to the width of 2 inches and the length of the bolt (somewhere between 40 to 42 inches)*hot glue*lighter*felt cut into a circle with circumference of about 2 inches*a clasp pin lets get started:*first you are going to take your strip of fabric and make a running stitch along the bottom of your strip leaving 1/4 inch on the bottom.(or you can just with a needle and thread make a running stitch)make sure you leave enough string at your ends so it's easy to keep a hold of them. take one of your end strings and gently pull till your strip of fabric is all ruffled up. i think it makes my spur of the moment "mad men

DIY envelope clutch (vintage romper, river island feather headband) I’ve been wanting an oversized clutch for a while now, especially since I laid eyes on that Celine clutch shot by Tommy Ton for Its minimalism is so beautiful. Then, I saw the Clare Vivier La Pochette on and instantly knew what my next DIY would be. I couldn’t decide what color fabric to choose, so... why not make 2? The steps are pretty simple and I probably could’ve made 10!!
