How to make a mini bow and arrows set. It's so fluffy! SCORE 162 Stop it! SCORE 1279 If the disney princesses had instagram... The only person you are destined to become... Things that I love. That's a strange way to make friends. Sock kitty! Introducing, Nap Time! DIY Satsuma Candle A friend of mine DIYed her own candles, made from the peels of Satsuma oranges, for a recent dinner party. I was so excited by this simple yet clever idea, I had to share the tutorial on HonestlyWTF. My only regret is not discovering this sooner when Satsumas were at their absolute peak in December. Hopefully, you’ll still be able to snatch up a few at your local grocery store or farmer’s market and impress your guests at your next dinner party! The stem side of the Satsuma will be the bottom and base of the candle. Because Satsumas are known for their loosely attached peels, the orange should easily be removed. Once the flesh of the orange is taken out, the pith connecting the outer stem should remain. Pour a few glugs of olive oil into the orange, leaving just the very tip of the pith exposed. Depending on the length of the pith, the candle should burn for at least a couple of hours.

Steps… * Cut 2 strips of leather lace. * To begin, find the middle of one of your laces and wrap it twice around your finger. * Getting the first and last stitches done are the most difficult, so watch these videos for help, but otherwise it’s just loop/loop opposing laces then loop over and under and over and under with the leftover laces, then pulling it tight. * Using your pliers, open a link in your chain . . .
