DIY Macrame Bracelet Growing up by the beach in Southern California, the ability to knot a macrame bracelet was practically a right of passage. Although those days are long behind us, we’ve never forgotten the ever-so-simple square knot technique. This time, however, we’re replacing hemp and wooden beads for more updated elements like colorful nylon cord and glossy metal charms. Happy knotting! You’ll need: Start by cutting the knotting cord into two 30 inch, two 20 inch and one 10 inch lengths.

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!

rolled paper flowers {tutorial} Welcome to flower week – five days of simple and delightful flower projects. I could probably do three weeks of flowers because there are so many different ways to create them, but I’ve limited it to five of my current favorites. Before we get started, let me make a few disclaimers: Things to Make and Do, Crafts and Activities for Kids - The Crafty Crow: Kids Handmade Holiday Like many of you, this year we are doing an all handmade holiday. This includes the kids! My sister and I have seven kids between us and working together we came up with a big list of all the things that the kids could make for their siblings, cousins, parents, aunt, uncle, grandparents and friends. paper crafts: countdown to christmas, making tree decorations Step 1: Choose a variety of coordinating decorative papers and cut them into 8cm x 4cm strips (you will need six pieces for each decoration) Step 2: Fold each piece in half lengthways, and then fold the corners inwards (with the folded edge along the bottom) Step 3: Fold each piece in half so the folded corners are together Step 4: Insert the points of one piece into the ‘pockets’ of another (you should have a double-sided pocket next to the folded corners)

Build It: Upholstered Storage Bench - Sawdust & Paper Scraps I”m happy to share some free plans and a tutorial for the upholstered storage benches that I made for Madison”s bedroom. They are SUPER easy to make. Now you can make your own storage bench or benches! I built them 18″ tall (the height of a standard chair) so she can slide one over and use it as a chair when she wants to do homework at her desk/hutch. That way, we don”t have to have a designated chair in the small bedroom taking up valuable floor space and the benches double as storage for all the things that never get used but we can”t seem to part with.

DIY Dry shampoo has been a MUST HAVE in my daily hair care routine for the past three years. I’ve gone through countless spray cans of different brands (Psst!, Tresemme, John Frieda, Garnier, Oscar Blandi, Batiste…to name a few), spending way too much for very little product. I started to use plain old baby powder, sprinkling it directly on my roots and rubbing it in, and I found that it worked just as well or even better at giving my hair added volume and combating greasiness. I continued to do this for months until one day I was at work, and I happen to catch a glance of my hair in the mirror.
