Easy Button Earrings Tutorial

Easy Button Earrings Tutorial
Did you know...that you can make new earrings with a button and a paperclip? True story! I've been trying to think of a way for us to make some earrings without having to buy supplies. Buying the beads and all the findings can really add up. :o( Sad. But-oh, what? That still leaves the findings. Clip the top of the paperclip off with wire cutters: Snap off the button shanks: Glue the paperclip to the back of the button. Open the loop at the bottom of your earring hook by bending it outward and hook it onto your paper clip. And...pretty new earrings! Walmart was out of gold sparkly ones (I like gold.) but here are some cute ones I found on $1-$2): And some cute ones on Etsy: This Etsy shop has infinity cute buttons, you have to see it. (click photos to see where to buy them!) Of course, you may have some on hand just waiting to use! Hope you enjoy. Have a great Sunday! Have a great Monday!! Love you, Disney

Holder for Charging Cell Phone (made from lotion bottle) My husband and I both have cell phones. And both of us have phone chargers. And that means lots of obnoxious cords. Salvaged drawers = modular bookcase I picked up these drawers on Freecycle. They were salvaged from the kitchen of a 1940s house that was demolished. My original plan was to put the drawers on wheels and use them as under-bed storage. Turns out, no two drawers are the same height, which would look janky. So I tried stacking them vertically instead (anchoring them to the wall, of course). You could also hang these drawers as individual shadowboxes. T-Shirt, Beach Cover up Inspiration Tutorial. Things You Need 2 t-shirts.. Knot Tote Tutorial I guess I figure if I am going to be going on a brief Maternity Leave soon, I might as well leave with a BANG! So I am hitting you up with some awesome tutorials I have had sitting on my backlog pile this week, and a couple next week as well! We started off the week with the Pipe Dreams dress, then moved onto watercolor fabric at The Girl Creative, and now I give you this adorable knot tote which I am in love with! I was playing around with some fabric, trying to figure out the knot shirt which I love so much (I must have watched that YouTube video like 100 times, all to no avail). So after what felt like hours of frustration, crumpled up paper, and ruined fabric, I came up with a much easier way to make this knot tote… This little bag will take you under a half an hour to make, and you will love the results!
