Home Work - The TP Flower Project

Home Work - The TP Flower Project
Some months ago I stumbled upon a really fun DIY with your kids blog post. While I have no kids, I still thought of saving that post and perhaps even try it myself one day (with or without kids...). Time passed and I completely forgot about it, until about a couple of months ago when I was going through my never ending "bookmarked web links" and I found it again. This time I left that page open and started working on it. At first I had to save every empty toilet paper roll. My someone thought I was crazy. Then I took that entire pile of rolls, folded them, and cut them into thin strips Next step was to create flower like shapes that connect to each other Now that I had a general design, it was time to glue each flower. I decided to paint some of the flowers light blue (using the left-over paint from our blue line project), and then leave the rest of the flowers in their natural look My someone and I decided to hang it on the wall next to our TV. What do you think...?

Tutorial: how to make a toy dog kennel for free. You know how when you buy a kid a big present they often end up playing with the box? Well this is a tutorial on how to make use of spare cardboard and create a gift for free. I have made a dog kennel but you could very easily adapt yours to make a stable, fire station, doll house, barn etc. Although you can use any old boxes I like the look of brown boxes and they worked well for the kennel. Rouleaux de papier toilettes encadrement géométriques Well that’s a mouthful! So the time has come, it’s Pinterest Challenge time again! Every season Sherry from YHL and Katie from Bower Power throw a little link party to get people to stop pinning things and actually start making. This couldn’t have come at a better time because I have wanted to start this project forever and once Miss Kelly made her way into my kitchen I knew it was time to start it.

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. But what a person can always look for more of is really cool unique bookmarks.

hillary fayle Even the smallest dreams shouldn't slip away... My name is Hillary and this is my art. I am all about creating beautiful things carefully and with regard for the planet. I try to use environmentally friendly and sustainable materials for my art, which has really defined what I do as an artist. Currently I am working with leaves as a primary material, which I coat in a non-toxic preservative and either cut them or stitch them to create delicate patterns which reflect the beauty of the natural world. Enjoy! Get Rich or DIY Tryin': Key Holder Using Old Keys Chris & I had a busy weekend of DIYing and estate sale browsing. We take on so many projects that it seems like a normal day for us is two for most people. Anyway, we got a lot done. Here is a quick project, but later this week we'll be posting part one of a bigger project. Do you often lose your keys?

Hello my blog friends! I'm so pumped to share a project I finished today! It's simple, cheap, quick, and fall-y (yes, that is a word). Anyway... I've been diligently collecting these for what seems like forever: Crafty Monster Bookmark Perfect for Father's Day This fun and simple bookmark came out of inspiration from Kari and Becky at UCreate. We all attended a conference a few weeks back and got to talking about how people come up with creative ideas. It can simply come from naming 2 supplies like googley eyes and pipe cleaners. Then Becky said how about a bookmark, so this Monster Bookmark idea was born. This would be a great gift for Dad for Father’s Day, along with one of our favorite books, What Dad’s Can’t Do by Douglas Wood.

No Sew Roman Shade from Mini Blinds ***UPDATE: I’ve received so many great questions about this project that I did a second post on no sew roman shade from a mini blind FAQs You may have seen a few versions of this floating around blogland and Pinterest, and being so sewing challenged, I am all for anything involving fabric that is “no sew”. Give me a drill or a saw and I’m all set. 1001pallets “For this bookshelf, i was lucky to find highly conserved beech pallets. I then took the pallets apart, plane and bevel (45°) and then drill with a drilling template. The initial metal structure was covered with plasterboard, and i then screwed the pallet boards. I first painted the plasterboard in black for the style. I used lego block to define the space between 2 wooden boards.”
