DIY Your Own Voice Controlled Lights Two quick things: There is a thriving knockoff market for Arduino boards and shields on eBay (a nano clone is less than $10) and many are pretty good quality. For a lot of my single purpose projects, I've started using Arduinos to program ATTiny chips rather than dedicating a dev board - works for more projects that I expected and the dedicated cost is ~$2 for the chip + whatever components you need. How To Make a Secret Hollow Book: The first step into making the hollow book is to select a book. Make sure this is a book your own, and not one belonging to the library, or your family. I suggest rummaging through books at yard/garage sales. Make sure it is a hardback; otherwise you will cut all the way through the other side when you are cutting out the insides.You'll also need: Elmer's white gluea container to hold glue solution (I've chosen a film canister)X-acto knife, and/or box cutter. Both if you have thembrush to apply glue solutionpencil/penruler, or other rigid straight edgeSelect a page that you want to be the first one cut out, and save that page to be cut out at the end.

Stenciling with Bleach So here’s tutorial #3 in the bleach series! It’s an easy way to customize a shirt, fabric by removing color instead of adding it. For my first project I used a $1 doily as my stencil. I placed it on a navy t-shirt and sprayed a mist of bleach over top: I moved the stencil to another location and sprayed again. You can see the color starting to change at the top:

20 DIY Home Decor Ideas using Decorative Paper I recently shared a hub about different ways pretty patterned papers, like scrapbook paper and others, can be used for different craft projects and a few of them were home decor crafts but there are still so many things you can do with decorative papers, especially for home decorating purposes. Using pretty paper to update furniture and other decorative pieces can really help give things a fresh new look. A few other things you can do is use it to decorate candles, create beautiful wreaths and chandeliers and lots of other decorative items.

{Valentines day} pixelated popup card I‘ve been scratching my head trying to come up with a card for my hubby {AKA the non-romantic type}. I finally decided to make this pixely popup heart card! They are really minimal (which I love) and take about 20 minutes to make (that includes the card, insert and envelope). You can even make some pixely confetti to put inside the card (if you are a big kid like me!). Full instructions and printable templates below!

Build Your Own Electronically Powered Self-Watering Plant System For those that want an off-the-shelf option I bought one of these and I love it for the most part: The reservoir is 6.6 gal so it is huge which is a good and bad thing. Also it is gravity based so somehow you have to manage to lift the 6.6 gal box above all your plants. Build Your Own Grid-It Tech Organizer in a Vintage Book No! NOOO! As cool as this may look, I just cannot do this! DIY String Art Hi guys! Dina here from Honey & Fitz back with another tutorial.

Elegant Tissue Paper Flowers Elegant Paper Rose "Elegant tissue paper flowers" may sound like an oxymoron, but the friend who taught me how to make these beauties, made dozens of them to decorate her Christmas tree last year. It was perhaps the most gorgeous Yule tree I had ever seen. Her flowers didn't have stems. How-To: "Stained Glass" Votive Holders By Jenny Ryan Many times when I’m at the grocery or drug store, I can’t resist throwing a few scented votive candles in my cart. When I’m ready to burn them, it’s easy enough to sit one on a cute little vintage china saucer, but I recently decided to try and find a fancier display solution for them. I also wanted the project to be inexpensive, and the materials used to be things I already had on hand.

Hack Your Door to Lock and Unlock via Text Message @hahn: I don't know about all that. With the right safeguards in place, I think this would be secure enough for my tastes: 1. Ensure it only responds to messages from ones' own phone. DIY Mini Photo Studio Our household is spawning blogs like bunnies. Since I need all the help I could get, I thought it would be good to up my photo game. We’ve been using a bay window to take some of our pictures.
