Anthro-Inspired Book Stack Necklace - JEWELRY AND TRINKETS One of my favorite bloggers posted about this necklace available on Anthropologie's website a few months back. It was retailing for something like $165. First, I looked around my house for leather-like items to cut up for the covers. I remembered an old red purse I had that would be perfect. I found an old green purse for a few dollars. I set out molding the pages out of white fimo that I had laying around. I sandwiched them between the cut leather and mashed things around a bit. Time for round two. I did some reading about the Anthro necklace, and found a similar one on Etsy. So I started cutting up books. I cut and I cut and I cut! I love it.

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. Fun, right? Let’s get started! We’re going to go through the steps to create your very own little terrarium. Dos and Don’ts: Do use sand or small pebbles; these are good because water drains through them easily. How To: You’ll need a few tools to make a tiny terrarium but nothing complicated to get started. Needle-nose pliersScissorsLong tweezers or chopsticksFlathead screwdriverGlasses or goggles Let’s start with the light bulb. We will be removing the inside parts of the lightbulb. First, remove the metal tip from the bottom of the bulb. Then, when enough of the sides are raised to get a good grip on them, hold one of the sides with your pliers and yank out the metal tip. Next remove the black glass. Now you will be able to see the interior parts of the light bulb. Pull out any remaining wires with the pliers.
Inspired Entertaining: DIY Chalkboard Wine Glasses Last month I got an email from one of those "deal of the day" websites featuring a very cute set of wine glasses with chalkboard stems from a company called Chalkboard China. I've seen chalkboard glasses before, and always thought them to be a fun and chic way for guests to keep track of their glass throughout the night so you don't end up with mixed-up glasses or dozens of half-full glasses left around the house. But all the ones I've seen in stores feature a strip of chalkboard paint across the bowl of the glass, which I've always felt looks awkward and takes away from the beauty of the wine or beverage in the glass. What I did NOT like about the glasses, was the price. $19.95 per glass is absurd and totally unnecessary. So I figured, "I can totally make that myself!" Here's how you can make your own set of inexpensive chalkboard wine glasses: Materials 1. 2. 3. Method Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Once the glasses are completely dry (about 24 hours) they're ready to use!

Nicole Mallalieu Design - Tips and Tutorials for Making Bags and Purses Tips & Tutorials Back to top VIDEO TUTORIAL - How to set in eyelets with a setting tool VIDEO TUTORIAL - Simple method for inserting purse feet. VIDEO TUTORIAL - How to Use a Clover Quick Yo Yo Maker This is an absolute must-read for anyone embarking on bag-making! ALWAYS use interfacing on any bag piece where the pattern reads "cut [specified number] i/f". Interfacing creates structure if it is used on the body of the bag - but is entirely optional here, and using it depends on the weight of the fabric and the finished look that you require. By fusing interfacing to every piece of the outside of the bag you'll add a lot more structure and "OOMPH" to the fabric. You can interface the lining if you want a stiff lining, but it shouldn't be the main support in the bag. It's important to remember that by adding an extra layer of interfacing to a bag piece, you are also increasing the bulk of the fabric.

How to make Plush Velvet Pumpkins Who else has a major crush on those Plush Velvet Pumpkins floating around blogland? Me Me Me! I had this in my head since last year, and was finally able to make my own Plush Velvet Pumpkins this weekend. I couldn’t believe how easy they were to make, once I had all the supplies. Supplies needed: Velvet fabric (I found mine on eBay for cheap) scissors thread needle pen ~also *shown below* *vines or stems from real pumpkins *glue sticks & glue gun *stuffing *beans *Lay your fabric out & draw with your pen various size circles. Now thread your needle & watch this video. I’m not a video pro, so be kind. Now it’s time to stuff your pumpkins. Yep, I used pinto beans & stuffing. Now for the glue. You will need a very small amount of glue. Let me stop right here & say getting these stems are probably the hardest part of the supplies needed for these pumpkins. Just kidding. And when you’re done with the glue, you’ll probably have to play around with your fabric some so the pleats will look even.
