Make This - Beaded Stars - Luxe DIY - How Did You Make This?
These tiny beaded stars are beautiful in their simplicity. The motif can be used in a variety of ways – from a single star on a chain to dozens as a charm necklace. Make them in soft colors like these for understated day wear or in metallic beads for sparkling night-out looks. After a bit of practice you can make one in just a few minutes. Supplies: - seed beads – size 15 are shown, but this will scale to any size seed bead - beading thread – OO Nymo or as appropriate - beading needle - pointy scissors Thread the needle, work with the thread doubled. Stitch through them to make a loop, and then through them one more time. String on 5 more beads. Repeat that all the way around. Stitch up through 2 beads you added in the last row. Skip the third bead in that loop, and go through the remaining 2. Go through the bead in the original loop, then repeat this for all of the remaining points. This could work as a necklace or bracelet. Related:  ✂️ ASSTD

DIY Party Animal Candles Hi there, it’s Jenny from Hank + Hunt with a fun and super easy diy today! As soon as I thought of making these I got a huge kick out of naming them Party Animals. Hilarious, but if you hear groaning…it’s coming from my house. Regardless of how cheesy the name is, these turn out awesome. Your kid’s favorite animal holding that birthday candle minus those red eyes that are oh so typical for plastic creatures, awesome. Supplies - plastic animalsplastic candle holdersdrill with 1/8″ drill bitpliersgold spray paint For the plastic animals, you can use any kind you can find. Hold the animal with the pliers and drill a hole straight down, being careful not to pop out the other side. Spray paint the animals in a few light coats, rotating them to cover all sides. I also painted the candle holders to match. That’s it. {Photos by Hank + Hunt for The Sweetest Occasion.}

How to cut glass I posted a picture about 1 week ago on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter of me cutting glass using just string. I got LOT’S of requests for a tutorial on how I DID THIS! So here it is. FINALLY! I want to warn you. It’s best to triple your yarn because it will burn longer! Soak it GOOD! I like to tie my yarn where I want my glass to “cut” then quickly pour polish remover over the string again. Get a big bowl with ice and water ready. VERY IMPORTANT! Slowly turn your bottle. You can’t let the flame go OUT then dunk it in the ice water. YAY!!! I reallly hope you enjoyed this tutorial because I had ALOT of requests for it! © Copyright jaderbombllc, All rights Reserved.

Orange Peel Candle Here's a great little way to make your own amazingly scented candles. The next time you want to snack on an orange, make sure you save the peel k? Here's the tutorial from Mom In Madison. Via Craft Gossip. Woven gift-wrap // pastel edition ^_^ By Kate on August 8, 2012 I noticed that the woven gift-topper I made last year was doing the rounds again on Pinterest so I thought I would make an updated pastel version (pastels seem to be the new neon at the moment). I bought some quilling strips (0.5cm) to use this time which reduces the labour by about half (I’ve also been working on some more intricate woven ‘things’ for another project…more to come soon). Anyway check out the previous post if you want full instructions. Above: Mischevious hands – the unseen backdrop in all my photo’s ^_^ While I took photos today my boys were making their own presents by wrapping boxes in newspaper. Finally, the font used on these images is called soymilk and it’s free to download …yay!

Cute Bookmarks bookmarks | 26 comments I don’t really use real bookmarks. I’m not sure why. They’re not expensive, or hard to make, but I tend to just pick up whatever to mark my pages. Old receipts, scraps of paper, a pencil, etc. (For those curious, I finished A Million Suns a couple days later and really enjoyed it! I’ve been eye-ing lots of super cute DIY bookmarks for the last few months that I’ve seen pop up around the web. The problem is, often my bookmarks fall out and I lose my page. I’m definitely going to keep these in mind for future gift giving opportunities after I’ve made a couple for our use at home. 8 Cute DIY Bookmark Ideas Bow Tie Paper Clips Using Fabric Scraps from How About Orange.

Personalized wire hanger for baby clothes This instructable describes how to make a personalized wire hanger with a person's name built-in so it's looks cool and stylish in your child's wardrobe ;-). Anyway, as I have a 11 months old baby boy and as we received tons of clothes for him (he even has more clothes than me or my wife), we're constantly lacking hangers, so I've decided to make some for him based on lilafrances' idea from Etsy. Also, a lot of our friends are in their thirties and babies are popping up everywhere, this of course represents quite a budget in baby presents. But now thanks to this marvellous idea I'll have super cool personalized custom handmade presents for all my firends' little ones... = instant karma for me ;-) As you've guessed by now, my son is named Sean.This hanger on the picture was my first one, in the meantime, I've improved my "n" and "s". You can see other hangers on lilafrances' profile (see link above); it'll give you some ideas on how to make the letters.

Tic Tac Vases My husband loves orange tic tacs almost as much as Paulie Bleaker, and we have a lot of these empty containers laying around. So, I decided to up-cycle them into mini bud vases. They work wonderfully together and look great lined up too. Grab some empty tic tac containers and remove all the sticker labeling with soap and water. Tip: Paper Source catalogs are perfect for this. This entry is filed under bright, colorful, container, crafty, decor, diy, flowers, home, housewares, how to, mod, modern, project, recycle, tic tac, tutorial, upcycle, vase.

Paper Lantern Paper lanterns are pretty stunning. They can be as simple as a tea light in a paper bag, or as complex as bamboo hoops with thick decorated paper. The paper lantern has been around for centuries. Originally from Asian culture, it has grown to be a decorative tool for any occasion or space. You can buy paper lanterns at your local craft store. Normally they come in simple white and, well, that is just too boring. What you need: LanternWrapped PaperHot glue hunCircle to trace/cut outScissors Step 1: Trace circles, cut out MANY circles. Note: The more circles you cut out, the more lush your lantern can be. Step 2: Hot glue tip of circle to lantern in circular pattern. Step 3: Keep gluing in pattern, repeating around lantern ’til it’s all covered. Ta-Dah!
