How to make your own air dried porcelain with common household ingredients Anything that is quick, affordable and makes beautiful things is a craft winner for me . But…I often find myself uninspired for something new and different. I’ve found it in air dried porcelain (aka Porcelana Fria). What will someone make with 3 cups of white glue (PVA) 3 cups of cornstarch (Corn flour) one tablespoon of white vinegar one tablespoon of glycerin (health food or hobby shop), and 2 tablespoons of canola oil? The beautiful mouse and necklace pictured (compliments of Espirit ) is the answer! Amazingly simple and a GREAT school holiday project, get the kids into the kitchen to cook up some home made, air dried, porcelain. Let’s make it: In a mixing bowl (or non-stick pan) mix 3 cups of white glue and 3 cups of cornstarch. For microwave heating : Cook in a microwave-compatible recipient for 2 to 3 minutes on high (for a 800W oven; longer for a less powerful oven). Stove top : Cook in a saucepan over low heat for about 15 minutes. This one’s a big thumbs up from me.

diy {magnets} I was cleaning out my craft space (or as my family jokingly calls it, "the factory") and I came across a few miscellaneous objects that I thought would be good to use for a project. Here are the items before: some flat glass marbles, unfinished wooden squares, and bottle caps. Now they are super cute magnets for my fridge! Glass marble magnet -Trace the marble onto the paper that you want to use. -Cut out the shape -Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the front of the paper and smooth it onto the glass marble. -Place a small dot of Gorilla Glue (or E6000) to the magnet and place it on the back of the marble (I placed a book on top of the magnets for some pressure while it dried.) And voila, lovely map magnets! Bottle cap magnets -Cut a circle the size of the inside of the bottle cap. - Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the back of the paper and place it inside the bottle cap. -Starting with the outside edges, fill the cap with dimensional craft glaze. Ta da!

How to Turn a T-Shirt Into a Dress This T-shirt dress was inspired by all those lovely jersey knit, color-blocked dresses from the ’60s, primarily designed by Rudi Gernreich and Mary Quant. While it’s unlikely that we’ll ever get our hands on an original, there’s no reason why we can’t make our own! The silhouettes of this era are typically pretty forgiving and way easy to replicate. My take on this look requires just a few T-shirts and a couple of straight seams—no fancy sewing or garment-fitting skills required! If you can sew a straight line, then you can definitely make this dress. You’ll need: Four T-shirts—two of each color. Making the top of the dress 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. We’ll only need one half of each T-shirt to make the top. Making the bottom of the dress To make the bottom half of the dress, we’ll basically repeat the same procedure, except this time, there’ll be fewer things to cut. 1. 2. Putting it all together 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Ta-da!

the photo-to-wood transfer « whollykao This Christmas, I made most of my gifts. The majority of the handmade items were photos transferred onto blocks of wood. It was something memorable to give family (especially for parents, who never seem to need anything!). Everyone seemed to really like them. I first heard about the photo-to-wood transfer from a coworker. She had found it on Pinterest, and wanted to try it out for Christmas gifts this year. I followed the directions on this youtube video, and came up with a nice collection of photos on wood. I thought I’d share some tips I learned during this process. Photo-to-wood transfersmaterials wood gel medium paintbrush photo, printed on copy paper varnish (or Mod Podge)step one: the wood I think any wood works, but just look for something that doesn’t have a lot of markings on it, or this will affect your end image. step two: the image Two rules of thumb here: use cheap cheap cheap paper (i.e. photocopy paper), and use a laserjet printer. Then it was time to rub the paper.

Celebrate Every Day With Me: The Best Ever Picture Hanging Tip There is nothing like company coming over for a little motivation to clean your house and take care of those put-off tasks. (I’m sure you are much better than I am!) After painting my daughter’s room this summer, I have been lax at putting everything up on the walls. But out-of-town company will be coming soon and I thought this was just the motivation I needed to get her room finished. Half way through the task of hanging items on her wall, I stumbled on this amazing idea on Pinterest. What You’ll Need: A piece of wood and a small nail. How to Make It: Drive the nail through the wood just enough that you will leave a mark on the wall when pressed. Hang your mirror/picture on the nail, supporting it as needed. Put it in place on the wall and push. Update: For those leaving comments and not quite getting it, here is a little step-by-step recap. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.
