DIY Enlarged Photobooth Strip Print at Inspiration Junkie robayre.com Images above (left to right) Martha Stewart, Design Editor, and A Beautiful Mess Well, another thing for the home, but I promise this is more of a designy-crafty-DIY type of a thing than home renovations. I’ve been seeing these large Debbie Carlos prints around for years, online and at renegade. Anthro Necklace Week - Paisley Rebirth Necklace & Flamingo Toes - StumbleUpon Anthro Necklace Week Day 4! In case you have not visited this week – it is officially Anthropologie Necklace Week! 5 Days of Tutorials ending in 5 Lovely Giveaways!! {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}.

mad in crafts: DIY Fire & Ice Lanterns - StumbleUpon The old becomes new: A new variation on the outdoor lantern. We have had an unusually warm winter in Michigan this year, and while the temps have been nice, I have had to hold off on this project idea until we got a cold snap. We finally got some snow and cold earlier this week, so I was able to try out this fun winter project.

Originally priced at nearly $30 for a kit that makes 6 lanterns, I think they are very reasonable for a small batch. If you are making several (say, for a special event or to light a walkway), you can make 3 of these DIY versions for only $2 worth of supplies from the dollar store.

Mason Jar Key Hook - StumbleUpon Hey guys! Hope you all had a great Wednesday I have a fun project to share today! I started with a 1×8 board from Lowe’s that I cut to about 2′ long. I used a different paint method on this board and I love how it turned out so I am going to share it with you in my next post. How to Decorate with Books One of my favorite go-to cheap decor ideas is an old stack of books. I don’t usually plan around this idea, and it isn’t my focal point, but it looks great on a side table or end table, shelves, mantle, or coffee table or ottoman. Or in that one place that you haven’t quite figured out what to do with. There are so many things you can do with books. Get creative! Dig out your old college text books we actually use a bunch of my husband’s old college engineering textbooks because they are old and look rough.

The Shop House While looking through etsy the other day, this wonderful shop caught my eye . I seem to be drawn to old books used in interesting ways these days. Woven paper gift topper I‘m pretty chuffed with these woven paper gift toppers. They are a sinch to make and look really great with recycled newspaper wrap. The idea originated from this woven yarn gift topper which you can see at giverslog.com and from this image which comes from the book More Last Minute Knitted Gifts. How-to ♥ Cut some strips of colored paper. Mine were 0.5cm wide.
