PB Knock Off Candles Look what just showed up in my brand new Pottery Barn catalog - music candles. Lovely, but $29 for the largest one? Really? I picked up two pillar candles on sale at TJ Maxx for $2 a piece. Download the pdfs of music here (tall) or here (wide). Cut the tissue to fit the candle. The tissue takes on the color of the candle. I learned that you can remove the tissue if you change your mind by gently pulling off the paper. Take that, Pottery Barn.

Dock at the World's First 3D-Printed House In the future, 3D printers will help architects quickly build efficient mass housing projects from recycled materials, effectively solving the worldwide housing crisis while reducing the industry's dependency on raw materials — of course, that idealistic vision at this point remains light years away. A bold group of Dutch architects, however, have decided to bring this utopian future a little closer. DUS Architects have commenced building an experimental 3D house along a canal in Amsterdam. And, now you can go watch 3D materials slowly coagulated into a house! Add To Collection Save this image to a collection To build the 3D Print Canal House, DUS purchased a shipping container on the internet, and transformed it into a giant 3D printer with the help of printer experts. DUS was already printing with smaller printers, but saw the opportunity to create unique buildings from recycled plastics and other materials by scaling the size appropriately. 3D printed housing has a long way to go.

Paper Scrap Light / Chandelier It’s a whopping 70 degrees in Brooklyn right now, so I’m going to get out from under the pile of packing boxes in our house and get some fresh air. Before I head out, I wanted to share this beautiful (and totally genius) DIY light project that graphic designer Gabrielle Guy created for a friend. After moving into a new house and finding an old lantern left behind, Gabrielle decided to cut strips from scrap paper and glue them onto the shade. Two days later, the result was an incredibly stunning artichoke-like lamp that looks expensive but cost close to nothing. Below is a summary of this week’s highlights:

Grow 100 Pounds of Potatoes in 4 Sq Feet On many occasions, we've been tempted to grow our own potatoes. They're fairly low maintenance, can be grown in a pot or in the ground, last a fairly long time if stored properly, and can be very nutritious (high in potassium and vitamin C). Here's more incentive: according to this article, you can grow 100 pounds of potatoes in 4 sq. feet. Learn how after the jump... According to this article from the Seattle Times, potatoes planted inside a box with this method can grow up to 100 pounds of potatoes in just 4 square feet. All that is required: Lumber Seed potatoes Soil Careful attention to watering The Times' guide for building a potato growing box yields up to a 100 lbs. of potatoes in a mere 4 square feet is shown below: Plant as early as April or as late as August 1, with an approximated 3 month till harvest turnaround time. Here are some pointers from the article: Cut apart larger seed potatoes, making sure there are at least two eyes in each piece you plant.

sculptural paper orb lights It’s wonderful to see so many DIY projects that take advantage of the humble paper globe light. Just when I think I’ve seen them all, I come across a new one that I love, like this version created by Heather Jennings of Poppy Haus. While browsing her local Anthropologie store, Heather was inspired by two things: the ingenuity of the displays, all made with simple, everyday materials, and the Rhododendron Chandelier. Adorned with handmade, sculptural paper flowers, the chandelier is amazing, but at $898, Heather thought it would it be the perfect candidate for a DIY variation. Luckily, Heather stumbled upon decorative cupcake liners with an optical, graphic print that provided the perfect amount of depth and texture. They [Anthropologie] sell all sorts of fancy and unattainable things, but the store is full of pieces constructed out of paper and wire and rope that give the same distinguished impression.

Billie Holiday » The Official Website of Billie Holiday Toilet Paper Roll Wall Art Well that’s a mouthful! So the time has come, it’s Pinterest Challenge time again! Every season Sherry from YHL and Katie from Bower Power throw a little link party to get people to stop pinning things and actually start making. This was the image I saw that sparked me to start saving my toilet paper rolls. I literally have been saving my rolls for. ever. Here’s what my toilet paper wall art turned into! Ok let’s get down to the nitty gritty. Next, I cut them up. Then, I took 4 pieces and glued them together using a hot glue gun. I continued doing this until I had about 40. Then I took the mirror I was going to use (10″ mirror purchased at Joann’s for $8) and placed it on the floor and started adding all the circles around keeping in mind that I wanted to keep it in a circle. At this point when I looked at it I felt it resembled a snowflake so I had to figure out how to completely round it out. Once everything was attached I used command strips on the back of the mirror and hung it up!
