Popsicle Stick Bracelets

Popsicle Stick Bracelets
So I was looking through my vintage craft book collection and ran across a 1970 Pack O’ Fun magazine. They had instructions on how to take a simple popsicle stick and turn it into a bracelet. I’m always happy to try and take a good idea and run with it. Well, I’m certainly on board for that. The thought of being able to make wood pliable put all kinds of ideas in my head. But we’ll start with the project at hand which happened to be bracelets. Are you new to the Sitcom? For this project I used: Popsicle sticks (bought the industrial strength size bag from Walmart because this project might go in future directions)Drinking glass (for forming- use a glass with a top opening that is slightly smaller than you want your bracelet to end up)Emory board or sand paperAcrylic paintStick on jewels (for bling)Mod Podge The instructions in the magazine called for allowing the popsicle sticks to sit in water overnight. Now for the fun part!! A simple craft with cute results! Signing you up!

Zip-up Earbuds I love to have my music with me everywhere I go, but I hate the tangled mess my wires become when I toss them in my bag or pocket. Last night I whipped up a fun and functional solution by adding a zipper to my earbuds. This project took me around an hour to do (perfect for catching up on some t.v. from hulu.com). The supplies are few; basic sewing supplies, a pair of headphones, and a nice long zipper. I happened to have this crazy purple and gold nike zipper I found thrifting a while ago, it seemed perfect for this project. The first step is to pull the earbuds apart, to separate the wires all the way down to the plug.

Ispovijest Homeschooler We start each day with group time which includes our calendar activities. Several of the printouts you see here are part of my Letter of the Week curriculum. Here is what our “calendar area” looks like and some of our activities: (Calendar and numbers are from Lakeshore Learning, I can’t find it on their site, but found it at Teacher Storehouse) Pledge of Allegiance Memory Verse Review: Click here for my A-Z memory verses Rhinestone Bangles I’ve had this project on the back burner for a long time and I’m so happy to have finally finished it to show you all! These bangles make great sparkly accessories for the holiday season or easy DIY presents for your fabulous friends! *NOTES: I bought a stack of 20 simple bangles at Target for less than $5. The rhinestone strands are from Michaels. You can use dots of glue to help start and finish off the thread wraps if you find it easier and less stressful than tucking and wrapping.

Negative Butterfly/Flower Whew. Ok. "Negative" week has literally tuckered me out. But I did it. diy project: jane joss’ recycled quilt flowers sadly yesterday ran away from me and i wasn’t able to post a project from jane joss i’d been excited about all week. jane joss is an alias for alyssa and joslyn krismer, former college roommates turned sisters-in-law (married to twins!). these self-taught seamstresses have a love of cool fabric and create some really incredible crafts and home accessories from their collections of great textiles. inspired by nature and beautiful prints, alyssa and joslyn now create modern fabric arrangements and potted plants which they sew and construct by hand. i’ve been a fan of their “sweet leaves” collections on etsy for a while and was thrilled when they agreed to share a DIY project inspired by their textile flowers. and the best part about this project?

Mir, ljubav, i prvi razred: Izrada Scrunchy granice Happy Summer Thursday, Y'all! It looks like all of us are working hard this summer! So, our school has air for a few hours twice a week during the summer. This gives teachers the opportunity to work in comfort. Tuesday, my partner in crime and I went to school to work and found, seriously, 9 other teachers working, also. We are all so dedicated! DIY - Pink Bead Cuff Bracelet Recently I’ve been infatuated with cubed beads and have ordered a fair few over the last few weeks. I was hoping these pink beads were actually glass like the post claimed it was, unfortunately I think they are most likely plastic – but despite this annoyance I think the project came out quite well and perhaps if more paint scratches off the beads it will give the bracelet a whole different look.
