Gorgeous Chiffon and Tulle Flowers - DIY: Gorgeous Chiffon and Tulle Flowers Photos By: Olivia Kanaley For this project you will need fabric - we used chiffon and tulle. Yardage needed will vary based on the number and size of flowers, as well as the fabric thickness. To make a stencil first free hand a rose petal shape and cut out. Take some fabric and fold it into a square a little larger than your flower pattern. Stack flower cut outs, alternating fabric types and staggering petals. Pinch together the center of the flower (from the bottom) and secure with stitches to create volume and give the flower and authentic shape. If desired you can sew decorative beads in the inside center of the flower. Finally, sew the flower to a hair clip or comb. You can also create a tie-on corsage or sash, by sewing one or more flowers to a length of silk ribbon.

PIN IT UP, GIRL - thebeautydepartment.com - StumbleUpon Our email box is literally flooded with requests for updos so here’s a fun one to get us all going! This is always a favorite for attending an event. This updo looks gorgeous on any hair color but particularly amazing with hilighted hair because it gives the hair lots of depth and dimension. For lack of a better word, I love the way it becomes “swirly”. Best thing is; it’s easy to do, gorgeous and keeps your hair out of your way for the night. Tools you’ll need: curling iron (to prep the hair with waves), sectioning clips, teasing comb or brush, clear elastic rubber band, bobby pins, light to medium holding hairspray (to mist over at the end).

Nickandroff’s Journal – The 10 Greatest Punk Albums Per Year, 1975-2010 – Last.fm DIY Ruffle Garland Hi sweets! It’s Jenny from Hank + Hunt and I am really excited about this DIY today…I’ve been meaning to share it with you. As you may know, the first thing I started selling in my shop were ruffled fabric garlands. I like them because they are pretty and girly and sometimes as a mom of two boys, you really need something feminine. Make these for your wedding, use them for your mini munchkin’s first birthday, Sweet 16 and your 25th Anniversary. Supplies: 4 yards of fabric Rotary cutter Pinking shears Thread and needle Sewing machine Twill tape or ribbon Wash, dry and iron the fabric. Thread the needle with a 2 yard length of thread, doubling over so you have a total length of 36”. Gently gather, and repeat. Once you have the length of garland you need, tie off the thread in a knot to hold the gather. Now, for the sewing machine part. Be careful that the ends of your fabric don’t get caught under the needle; this is why we keep the ruffle flat with the edges to the side. 1.

mad in crafts: DIY Fire & Ice Lanterns The old becomes new: A new variation on the outdoor lantern. We have had an unusually warm winter in Michigan this year, and while the temps have been nice, I have had to hold off on this project idea until we got a cold snap. We finally got some snow and cold earlier this week, so I was able to try out this fun winter project. I had pinned a product called Globe Ice Lantern Kits a few months back recognizing that I could DIY them at home. To make DIY Fire & Ice Lanterns, you will need: a package of 3 punch balloons from the dollar store a package of 3 LED tea lights from the dollar store bowls small cylinder (shot glass, pop bottle, etc.) water freezer or below-freezing outdoor temps You are getting a glimpse of my less-than-sparkling kitchen sink in this post. First, stretch the opening of one punch balloon over your faucet. Turn on the faucet and let the water pressure fill the balloon to your desired size. If you were to freeze the balloon as it is, you could make a lovely ice orb.

Mission - Surya Namaskar - Sun Salutation Surya Namaskar or the Sun Salutation is a most complete series of postures. It is a very good exercise which takes only a few minutes to do and serves as a warm up routine before the practice of yoga asanas. It is one of the best home exercises requiring little space, only eight by three feet. Be sure to have enough space to lie down, and enough clearance to stretch the arms above the head while standing. Surya namaskar consists of a sequence of twelve postures performed continuously and combined with synchronized breathing. Each position counteracts the preceding one producing a balance between flexions and extensions. These 12 exercises are 1 round of surya namaskar. A healthy person requires a minimum practice of 12 or 16 rounds of surya namaskar each day. Surya namaskar's sequence of postures is most scientific as it completes the circuit within the body.
