Plastic Spoon Laurel Wreath

Plastic Spoon Laurel Wreath
Last week I saw a photo over at Casa Sugar and I couldn’t get the idea out of my head. I love projects where you don’t have to think or spend much money. Hot glue, 50ish spoons and 15 minutes. I made one out of blue and green spoons too. I like the white one better and I think the white wreath only cost $3. This blue and green one was eight dollars.

Create Something Saturday's- DIY Stencil Art by 8thlopez on July 26, 2010 If you are a fan of graffiti or any type of street art, chances are you have come across an artist named Banksy who does impeccable stencil art installations and is now a world-renowned artist, even though he keeps his identity a secret. You may not be an aspiring Banksy, but would like to make some stencil art yourself.

- StumbleUpon I love using mason jars for decorating and a seemingly endless supply of craft projects. But rainbow tinted mason jars, just like the vintage ones you can never find anymore? This one might be my favorite project with mason jars yet! Mason Jars Mod Podge in Gloss (buy it here) Food coloring Ramekins to mix colors Newspaper or paper bag The Miss Rio Recycled Flip-Flop Ottoman The Miss Rio Ottoman is composed of an unlikely material that gives it its Nerf-esque pizazz and Koosh ball buoyancy: recycled Flip-Flops. Designer Karin Wittmann Wilsmann takes industrial leftovers from flip-flop factories to groups of local craftspeople in Brazil where the unprocessed material becomes Miss Rio Ottomans. Distributed by Design Within Reach, the Miss Rio Ottoman feels just as you’d imagine thousands of flip-flop scraps would, shock absorbent and bouncy. An inventive reuse of factory overstock, each ottoman is created without any additional processing or materials. Recommended for outdoor use, the ottomans will hit the market on September 12th, perhaps in a sweet ode to the closing of sandal season. Wilsmann has received multiple recognitions and awards for the design of Miss Rio, a product that is both environmentally and socially sound.

you knew i was going to make one. they are all over pinterest....(i still am not signed up for pinterest because i don't have time for one more thing but browsing is fun!) so we made one. i took a box of 64 crayons and took out the blacks and browns.i used another small box and doubled up on the good colors i liked and hot glued them to the top of our canvas. DIY Idea: Rainbow Melted Crayon Art » Man Made DIY Artist and designer Jessica Kerbawy creates these amazing rainbow wall art pieces by gluing a spectrum of crayons on foam core, and then strategically melting them with a heat gun. The paper wrappers are left atop, with the remains of the colored wax dripping down. Though it may look like something you've seen before, I find these to be pretty clever and unique, and an update on the playing with melted wax and rainbow techniques. Jessica's prices are actually incredibly reasonable, between $25 and $75 depending on the size. But, it's also something you could try yourself, especially now that it's back-to-school season, and large boxes of crayons will be on sale.
