hometalk This month's #createandsharechallenge was all about using a GraphicStock image to make unique home decor items. I fell in love with a Moroccan inspired image that I just had to make dessert plates to highlight all the bold colors. I love incorporating globally inspired decor into my home. A very easy way to accomplish a global home is to use interchangeable accents like tableware. Not everyone can purchase a slew of plates to coordinate with each tablescape, so why not make your own.

13 Plastic Bottle Reuses (+ how NOT to reuse them) DIY Crafts Published on August 13th, 2015 | by Jeff McIntire-Strasburg The best way to reduce the number of plastic bottles in landfills is to avoid buying them in the first place. Reuse is second best, but when you can’t avoid them, try one of these clever plastic bottle reuses to give them a new life! Pretty much any time we’ve pulled together a collection of reuse and upcycling projects, at least one involves plastic bottles. Not only are these items versatile, but they’re also readily available. Ocean rubbish turned into marine animals Everyday I go to my local beach and while I'm there I pick up bottle lids, bits of rope, rubber thongs and a variety of different plastics. Most of the time all this rubbish I’m collecting would ultimately end up in landfill. What I’m trying to do is reduce landfill plus create awareness about all this rubbish that’s ending up in our oceans because it’s effecting our marine creatures that live there. The rubbish I mainly find is bottle lids, cigarette lighters, toothbrushes and lots of plastic.
MY PEACE of JEWELRY: MANNEQUIN - DIY UPDATE a/o May 2012 Because I love to work with my hands and create a variety of things. I thought I could make my own mannequins.

The Enchanted Petal: How to Make a Paper Flower Medallion A few months ago I came across a picture of some paper wall art that looked like pretty dahlias and thought… I can totally make that, so I did! I made large ones and small ones and before I knew it I made a lot of them. I brought them into the flower shop and my coworkers loved them! We hung them on a wall in our office and it turned into a pretty spiffy looking bit of wall art. Over the following weeks our paper dahlias were finding their way into the background of a few of our Facebook pictures and people started asking what they were, if they could buy them and how they could make them, so here’s our how-to (we of course offer them for sale too). Start with your scrap cardboard (I used an old flower box) and use your compass to make a circle (or trace something round).
