DIY Dixie Cup Garland

DIY Dixie Cup Garland
Aug 10 Cuteness alert coming right at you, but how fun is this little DIY project, guys? I found the original inspiration on Pinterest (the ‘lamp shades’ were covered in Hallowe’en hued paper) but figured I’d give it a go using my fave hues. Wouldn’t this garland be absolutely fabulous for a bridal shower, an outdoor wedding and or even the most perfect addition to a nursery in lieu of a night light? {Step 1} Carefully cut apart a Dixie cup and smooth it out so it is as flat as possible. {Step 2} Using double sided tape, adhere one end of a shade cover to a Dixie cup. Like so! {Step 3} Using a pencil (or you can just eyeball it) you’ll make an X on the bottoms of the Dixie cups. I only made a select number of shades for the purpose of the photos here but you get the idea. And just in case you’re wondering how your little cups will look when you plug in your lights, here’s a shot for you :) xoxo

Snakes Nest How To Mix Chalkboard Paint in Any Color We love using chalkboards as backdrops for displays and parties (like this one here!). So we were super excited to learn that you can create your own custom colors-and it's really easy! We first learned how from Martha Stewart whose tutorial you can read here. She recommends that you use latex paint, but we tried it out with acrylic paints with much success. Supplies: 1/2 cup acrylic paint (choose any color you like, or mix colors together to make the perfect shade!) 1. 2. Once your chalkboard has fully dried be sure to slate the surface before using it for the first time. Have fun creating any color combination you like!!

Studley Tool Chest In July 1988, the back cover of Fine Woodworking magazine featured an awe-inspiring object: the vintage 19th-century tool chest of master carpenter and free & accepted mason H.O. Studley. If the workmanship in the tool chest is any indication of the maker's talent, then the craftsmanship of Studley must have been a wonder to behold. The chest created quite a stir among our readers, and when we later created a poster of the chest, it quickly sold out. The poster was reprinted in 2011 and can currently be bought in our store. Poster back by popular demand Fine Woodworking has reissued the poster with an updated image of the tool chest, which shows off some recent repairs to the inlay and replacement vintage tools added to the tool chest by its current owner.
