Bougies - Houses by Night

Bougies - Houses by Night
Ready for a bit of DIY love? :) A little town at night.. isn’t it sweet?! There are a few tricks to making this DIY a success, all to do with finding the perfect image. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. I was lucky enough to have found some old photo books at a market in Germany that hold some of the coolest black and white photos from the War era.. perfect for a project like this one! Here’s what you’ll need: **Note: Use only Battery powered tea lights ! Step 1: You want to start cutting and finish cutting at around the same height on either side of your picture. Step 2: Trim away any other areas you don’t want, but don’t trim the sides yet. Step 3: Using your Xacto knife and a cutting mat, carefully cut out any windows you want the light to shine through. Step 4: Wrap the image into a cylinder (size is up to you) and sticky tape it together. Step 5: Add your battery operated tea light, and wait until it gets dark! **Note: Use only battery powered tea lights!

DIY Zipper Headband I guess this is a week of headbands. ;) Have you ever stopped to think about what a cool gadget the zipper is? You can close things with one hand, they make a funny noise, they have "teeth"... Zippers are such a fun material to use in crafty things, and I can't believe that I never thought to wear one as a headband before. (I did make shoe flowers out of zippers a couple years ago, but then I've also tried to make everything into a flower.) :) What you need to make a zipper headband: - Zipper (I like the industrial-looking zippers, you can find them at sewing stores.) - Bobby pins You don't need much for this one. Pin one side of the zipper underneath your hair in the back. That's it!

50 Things Everyone Should Know by Mark and Angel Self-reliance is a vital key to living a healthy, productive life. To be self-reliant one must master a basic set of skills, more or less making them a jack of all trades.

The Next Bird: Bachelorette Party (Part 1) This past weekend we visited Savannah, GA to celebrate my friend Janine's bachelorette party. Oh boy, it was a blast! Before we went I was on the hunt for ideas for the party and couldn't really find anything that I loved. First and foremost I must shout out to the ladies that attended: (From the left: Yours truly, Loren (sister), Kristin (sister), Carrie (bff), Jen (bff) and the beautiful bride Janine) Party Idea 1: Champagne. First I scrubbed off the label of the wine bottles by soaking them in water and scrubbing with a brillo pad. WARNING!!! Did I mention 2 of them popped? After my little mishap, I took them out for a coat of chalkboard paint (I really love this stuff). After a couple of coats, this is how they turned out: TIP: After traveling down to Savannah, they got a little scuffed up which was disappointing. This seemed like a long post so I'm going to break it up in a series.

Do-it-Yourself DIY String Wedding Lanterns Yarn Chandeliers Jessica of Wednesday Inc shows us how to make those gorgeous twine chandeliers from the inspiration shoot she shared with us this morning. Using balloons, glue and twine, you can also make these lanterns for your wedding – and then bring it home and use it as your very own mid century lampshade. What you will need are: balloons, glue, yarn, tray for glue, corn starch 1/2 cup of Corn starch, 1/4 cup of Warm water, clear fast drying spray paint, hanging lamp cord or fishing line (depending on your desired final product), and a lighting kit if you’re looking for a fully functional lantern. Jessica recommends using a sharpie to mark on the inflated balloon how much room you need to leave for the lighting cord. She also recommends coating the balloon with vaseline prior to wrapping the yarn coated with glue so it doesn’t stick on the balloon once it’s dry. Are you getting excited to try to do this at home as much I am? Instructions: 1.

Incearca si tu Cu siguranta ai pe-acasa cateva reviste uitate intr-un colt care in mod normal ar lua lejer drumul cosului de gunoi. Inainte sa le arunci, iti propun un "handmade project" foarte interesant si fun de facut :) o geanta din bucati de hartie care te va scoate din anonimat! 100% :) Ai nevoie de cateva reviste (2-3, depinde de cate foi folosesti din una singura), banda scotch (eu am folosit 2 role si jumatate), foarfeca, liniar, pix si muuuulta rabdare! Pentru inceput delimitezi dreptunghiuri de orice dimensiune crezi tu ca se potriveste. Inainte sa decupezi dreptunghiurile, acopera-le pe o singura parte cu banda scotch. Bucatile de hartie trebuie impaturate pentru a putea fi folosite. ...trebuie conectate intre ele: In modul asta faci cateva randuri care vor deveni peretii gentii. Din fiecare rand trebuie sa faci un cerc. Aceste cercuri o sa formeze peretii gentii, deci inaltimea gentii o sa depinda de numarul de cercuri. Randurile se cos intre ele in zig-zag. O sa rezulte un plic:

Scoubidou/rondelles The moment we saw Phillip Lim‘s Box Braid Collar Necklace, we were immediately overcome with a wave of nostalgia. Our memories of a neon, plastic box braid lanyard was suddenly transformed into a sophisticated leather jewelry component. Honestly, brilliant! Inspired by our fondness of Lim’s necklace and our love of utilizing hardware, we made our own interpretation of a box braid necklace. Start by cutting the suede in 4 three-yard pieces. Repeat the box braid until you are ready to add washers to the necklace. Once the necklace is finished, trim the ends. Wear it as a necklace, wrap bracelet or even a headband!
