Hanging Chains Headband DIY While browsing Topshop last week, I came across this fun hanging chains headband and thought with Coachella right around the corner, an easy DIY for something similar would be fun. I used an old plastic zig zag stretchy comb headband I’ve had for years because it was the most logical choice to hang chains from but you can use an elastic band in a similar way. The chains disappear a little in my blonde hair but they would stand out really pretty agains brunette locks {it would also look great on a shorter cut as well}. If you’re super crafty, add a feather or bead/charm to the bottom of a few chains.

How to create a Typographic Portrait in Illustrator - All The first task you have to do is choose an image to base your typographic portrait on. Be careful to choose an image which has good contrast between subject and background. The image should not be under exposed or over exposed. This will make your job tougher. The image should be black and white or coloured converted to one. For the tutorial , I will chose a coloured image and then converted it to a black and white image.

12 Awesome Beds in Tiny Spaces Do you live in a tiny apartment? You’re looking for more space, but have no ideas? When it comes to living in a tiny house we have to get creative. Here are some awesome ideas where to put a bed in a tiny space! 1. Bed Hanging From a Ceiling DIY Roman Shades It always feels great when you have your mind set on how you want something to look and then it all comes together. This is exactly what has happened with my entry way/porch area. I knew I wanted to put stripes on the wall but it was a matter of finally getting around to it. Once that was done and the porch was all cleared out I knew I had to make it something that was worth having. That’s when I ordered my desk and watched the space slowly turn into what I had envisioned. I had my cream and tan stripes, I had my white lacquered desk, now it was time for some color.

How To: Make a Homemade Snow Globe As Kate so delicately alluded to earlier this week, I am somewhat of a holiday junkie. And Christmas is the holiday of all holidays for me. I decorated a week before Thanksgiving; yep, I’m one of those people. One of my most favorite holiday traditions as a child was our little family advent calendar and now that my kids are old enough to enjoy some fun and creative activities, I’ve filled up our little numbered stockings with slips of paper instead of candy. Well, slips of paper intermingled with candy.

Art Medium and Art Supplies: What They Are and How to Use Them — Art is Fun Click on a medium above to read an in-depth description and see examples of what you can achieve with that medium. Each medium has its own particular characteristics and each requires its own techniques for creating art. If you've never used a particular art medium before, it's often helpful to read through a description of it first, as well as look at art that was made with that medium. That will help you decide whether it's something you'd like to try. What about oil paints? Slatts Paracord Rescue Bracelet (no buckle) I love paracord, both for its countless uses and the fact that it looks really cool when woven into bracelets, belts, straps, etc. I work backstage and am always looking for a good way to carry a large amount of cord on me that can be easily accessed. I found The Slatts Rescue Belt and decided to see if I could weave one into itself without using a buckle.

TetraBox Light by Ed Chew Liquid to Light Designer Ed Chew takes a green step in the right direction with the TetraBox lamp, a light object made from discarded drink packets that would have otherwise ended up in landfills already packed to the brim. The design is achieved by unfolding the packets and refolding them into hexagonal and pentagonal sections that are then pieced together to form a geodesic sphere or any other desired shape. Here, the Epcot-like ball makes an attractive overhead light and casts an impressive web of shadows and shapes on the surrounding space. Designer: Ed Chew
