Mini Piñatas DIY

Mini Piñatas DIY
Oct 12 Yea! It’s a piñata day! We miss Mexican food here in Paris since it isn’t as readily available as back home so we started having Taco Tuesdays where my friend Rubi makes amazing homemade tacos. Last night we got together and I made everyone their own personalized mini piñatas. There was one at each person’s plate filled with treats and surprises. Materials Needed: Cereal boxes, scissors, exacto knife, crepe paper in folds, tape, glue Step One: Draw a picture of the donkey on a cereal box and cut it out with scissors. Step Two: Once your armature is built its time to decorate. Step Three: When you are done cut a trap door at the bottom to fill with treats like small candies, gifts, party poppers, and confetti. I loved making these! You can find the other piñatas in my piñata series right here. All photos by Oh Happy Day Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.

DIY TOUCH UPS FOR THE PETITE CLUTCH photos + post by amy nadine, graphic design by eunice chun This little lifesaver is the brainchild of my lovely {and clever} client Emmy Rossum! Last Saturday I had the pleasure of doing her makeup for her Shameless panel at Comic Con, but I did it at 6:30am here in LA for her to leave at 8 and drive two hours to San Diego and attend the event until 5pm, without me there to help her with touch ups. Of course lipstick and blotting papers fit in her clutch, but not her foundation bottle or cream eye shadow.

DIY Cereal Box Drawer Dividers Home Office month is in full swing! And it's not just about the papers. And paper piles. And filing. And paying bills. It's also about the area you do your work within. Felt Flower Pillow Tutorial I'm really in love with the versatility of felt at the moment, plus it's a fabric that's perfect for the fall season. So, I decided to combine felt with some of the Marimekko fabric that I recently purchased at Crate and Barrel Outlet and create a fun throw pillow. Here's what you'll need if you want to make your own... SuppliesFelt - Two colors for the flower petals and one color for the centerFabric - The Merimekko fabric I used has a bold leaf design on it to complement the flower, but you can use any fabric you like.Piping 1.5" Cover Button Kit ScissorsRotary cutter (optional)Freezer paper Polyester battingCoordinating threadSewing machine (not pictured)Straight pins (not pictured) Step 1: Cut a piece of freezer paper into an 8.5" x 11" rectangle and print this pattern for the petals onto it. Make sure the paper is oriented in your printer so that you will be printing onto the paper side (not the side that is coated in plastic).

Best Oil Treatments for Your Hair Type We all want to have shiny, healthy hair without overspending on pricey products and treatments. For centuries women have sworn by one DIY method: all-natural hair oils. We've already discussed the amazing benefits of the ultra-popular argan oil, coconut oil, and macadamia nut oil, but a slew of other options can add gloss, luster, and length to your locks. We chatted with Ava Shamban, M.D, author of Heal Your Skin, and celebrity hairstylist Corey Powell of Sally Hershberger Los Angeles (clients include Cameron Diaz and Hilary Swank) about these healthy hair helpers.

DIY Cereal Box Gift Tags With Christmas right around the corner, there are a million things to do in the way of decorating, list making, gift buying and travel planning. It can be overwhelming, especially if you’ve resolved to have a handmade holiday. Because DIY projects can be a bit of an investment and a little more work, I like to focus on ones that will serve me year round (while staying season-appropriate). It’s easy to get lost in the idea of “doing it yourself” in order to save money and vent some of that creative energy, but the “saving money” part can get tossed out the window fast if a lot of your projects are only useful once or twice a year. DIY Newspaper Gift Bag This newspaper gift bag is a cute way to wrap a birthday present for a friend! It’s super easy and lots of fun! I used the comic section, but go ahead and use any other section or kind of paper you like!
