Series 7 - Ornament-ED Finale: Heart House Ornament
I have been feeling some feelings lately. Like, feelings of well-being. Like, spontaneous-breaking-into-song-and-general-wonderfulness-type feelings. I know... It sounds pretty floofy, but I can't help it. And I can't explain it either. Before I Begin: I made two versions of this ornament. Tutorial ♥ Heart House Ornament You will need: Old greeting cards or tissue box (but I strongly recommend old greeting cards)Pair of scissorsExacto knifeCraft glueClothespins (for clamping)Pretty stringTwo wooden beads (I stole these from The Boy's stash. 2. 3. 4. 5.

On that note, it is time to bid a fond farewell to this little series... Have a happy weekend.

page corner bookmarks This project comes to you at the request of Twitterer @GCcapitalM. I used to believe that a person could never have too many books, or too many bookmarks. Then I moved into an apartment slightly larger than some people’s closets (and much smaller than many people’s garages) and all these beliefs got turned on their naïeve little heads.

Tie Dye Window Decorations We’ve been having a lot of rainy weather around here and the kids have been stuck inside for over a week now. The other day, the five-year-old and I stumbled upon an easy activity that kept him busy for over an hour. OVER AN HOUR, PEOPLE! If you’re the parent of a five-year-old, you know how awesome that is.

Yarn Ball DIY Tutorial As mentioned in this recent post, I’ve attempted making yarn balls to hang over the dance floor at our wedding reception next month. Having successfully made 8 so far, I wanted to share this tutorial with others who were interested in also trying them as I think I may have uncovered the secret to successfully making them. Up first, gather the supplies! You’ll need include:

Paper Onion Garland I made these map garlands as a special request for a customer and they have proved rather popular. The map colours glow in the light – all those blues and green smoosh together into something very pretty. This is the style I call ‘paper onions’. I don’t know what else to call them! These are paper hearts, strung on twine. Great Pyramids of Giza in Egypt - the Seventh Wonder of the Ancient World Arabian proverb says, "Everything in the world is afraid of time, and time is afraid of the pyramids". A year ago Sergey Semenov tried to rent a helicopter in Cairo to shoot the pyramids. It didn't work. "No photos allowed due of the close proximity of the military base" such was the explanation.

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.

Easy sewing patterns for kids What sweet easy sewing patterns for kids! We do rather enjoy a bit of sewing… We were lucky enough to have mothers and grandmothers who could sew, (not being gender specific here, that’s just how it was then!) I have incredibly fond memories of my school summer dresses and school party dresses being made by my mother, the fabric’s and patterns spread over the dining table, the shiny pins, and chalk, the drum of the electric sewing machine noise.

Paper Owl Family Today I was inspired by The Krafty Wife to make my own paper owl family. I used scraps of paper with patterns and put them together to make cute owls. First you can download the base template for the owl here at sewnews Use scraps of paper with different colors and patterns for the body parts of the owl. DIY Cardboard Easel - Art Bar There are many ways to make a quick easel. I might have learned quite a few tricks if I had actually researched before I made this project. But I’m much more of a spontaneous planner, and I woke up on the morning of art class with an idea that my students should experience painting on a proper easel. I quickly went to the attic, where we still have mounds of brown boxes from our move last year, and I grabbed a few and brought them downstairs. The following is my solution to the DIY easel!

Noel Home: Comfy PJ Pants for the Whole Family Our thanks to our creative friends at our Signature Sponsor, Janome for sharing this project with us. It was created last year for a special New Sewists Series they put together, and the instructions show you how to make pajama pants without a pattern; simply grab your favorite current pair and use them as a template. We added a jazzy bottom accent cuff to ours so we could mix and match our beautiful Michael Miller Bonnes Amies fabrics.
