corbeille avec des sacs plastiques Recycling ideas: basket out of nilon bag Material - Plastic bags- Scissors, needles, Instruction: Lined Canvas Diaper Box You can find almost anything on Pinterest…it’s true. Upon wasting my time searching the other day, I found a fantastic tutorial on upcycling diaper boxes. Hmmm…what could I do with this? Oh, yes – toys scattered all about our living room floor: check, a desire to get said toys put away when not in use: check, cute fabric laying there staring at me: check! I decided to take on this project!
Home Work - The TP Flower Project Some months ago I stumbled upon a really fun DIY with your kids blog post. While I have no kids, I still thought of saving that post and perhaps even try it myself one day (with or without kids...). Time passed and I completely forgot about it, until about a couple of months ago when I was going through my never ending "bookmarked web links" and I found it again.
Cell phone charging cradle My husband and I both have cell phones. And both of us have phone chargers. And that means lots of obnoxious cords. You never know when one of us may be moving phone cords around, to give our phones an extra charge while we’re chatting away……… or trying to charge our phones up before running errands or something. 29 Cool Recycled Pallet Projects: Reuse, Recycle & Repurpose Old Wooden Pallets You are here: Home / Featured / 29 Cool Recycled Pallet Projects: Reuse, Recycle & Repurpose Old Wooden Pallets 29 Cool Recycled Pallet Projects: Reuse, Recycle & Repurpose Old Wooden Pallets December 20, 2012 By Creek 102 Comments lampes papier Have you seen these amazing lamps?! A designer that has her stuff on Etsy, Allison Patrick of the 3R’s Blog (Reduce, Reuse, Redecorate – 30 projects in 30 weeks) has created some pretty cool pendant shades that are pretty representative of the beautiful shape of the artichoke. But – the shade is made of recycled pages from books and magazines! Allison’s lamps are very cool, they remind me of the decoupage projects my mom would do with us as a kid. Just recently she got featured on Fab.com, and that has pushed her work sky high! Allison’s got a pretty awesome story with her luminaire design business (which is called Zipper 8 Design, by the way) – she graduated with her Masters, and like many people, she found herself with lots of time and no job.
30 Tage 30 Dinge A lovely upcycling idea to go by Naemi. Naemi says: “Here is my upcycling idea: a washbag for your toothbrush made out of old coffee bags. Just cut it out on the side, sew it on top and apply a zip. Very convenient for travelling. (: You just need coffee packaging (I got mine in a fair trade store) and a zip! 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.
Toilet Paper Roll Wall Art Well that’s a mouthful! So the time has come, it’s Pinterest Challenge time again! Every season Sherry from YHL and Katie from Bower Power throw a little link party to get people to stop pinning things and actually start making.

15 DIY crafts to make right now It's cold, it's raining and quite frankly, it's utterly miserable outside at the moment. So stay in! But then it hits you. It's not that great inside either. You're young, so you haven't got all of that furniture and all of the little decorative trinkets that accumulate over time, and if you have, you haven't got nearly enough. So we say, make them! Shape Book Tute I’ve had an overwhelming response to this project and everyone wants a tutorial, so here you go. First off, gather your supplies: - book for dismembering, paperbacks are great - template (I made half an apple out of a thick piece of chipboard) - exacto knife with a very sharp blade - clips Crafty Monster Bookmark Perfect for Father's Day This fun and simple bookmark came out of inspiration from Kari and Becky at UCreate. We all attended a conference a few weeks back and got to talking about how people come up with creative ideas. It can simply come from naming 2 supplies like googley eyes and pipe cleaners. Then Becky said how about a bookmark, so this Monster Bookmark idea was born.
