One of our belt designers, Cristina, has been busy working on some unique home creations. She photographed this D.I.Y. to share with us and we can’t wait to try it out– she says it’s so easy! Since Easter is this weekend, wouldn’t this also be a cute approach to a basket?
candle holder with flat sides (any size)
craft adhesive– multi-purpose for wood and glass surfaces
dry tree or shrub branches
Step 1. Wash the candle holder with dish soap and dry well. Cut the branches down to sticks close to the height of the candle holder, it is best to cut a few at a time.
Step 2. Dab the glue on a stick making sure to hit the areas that will be flush to the glass. Place on the glass. You can do a few at a time and then hold until they won’t slide off before you rotate the holder.
Step 3. Repeat until all of the glass has been covered. As always, if using a candle holder do not leave these unattended! Isn’t the end result just magnificent?
Our intern, Kara, created this D.I.Y. just in time for Mother’s Day! At first glance you think it’s just a fancy matchbook, but when you look inside, you realize it houses a special, personalized note! Fill the inside pages with little drawings, quotes, or messages. We like the idea of writing out the 10 reasons why Mom is the best on each page. You definitely can’t leave out the sandpaper strip on the back- it’s the best detail! Of course, these are great to give anyone, or simply as a gift to yourself. Read on to see the step-by-steps to this project.
Printer or notebook paper
Step 1. Measure out and cut cardstock to be approximately 1.5” x 4.25”, cut sandpaper to 1.5” x .25”, and cut notepad paper to 1.25” x 1.75”
Step 2. Fold the cardstock up about 3/8”.
Step 3. Then fold the cardstock in the center two times like a matchbook.
Step 4. Insert the notepad paper of your choice, and staple together.
Step 5. Glue a strip of sandpaper to the back of your matchbook.
Step 7. Draw or write messages on the note paper inside. Whoever receives this matchbook, will be pleasantly surprise!
Found this great DIY that I know everyone will love
had to be shared and passed on!!
There’s something so cool about displaying a clothing rack in your space. Of course it’s functional, but it’s also aesthetically pleasing when certain items are hung next to each other. Over on You Have Broken the Internet, we noticed a great D.I.Y. that teaches you how to make your very own coat rack out of base pipes and wood. When we first laid eyes on it, we instantly thought about the vintage rack we had in our Fall ’10 catalog. This D.I.Y. rack looks like one of those expensive vintage pieces; however, it costs only $71 to make! This one’s worth jotting down on your weekend to-do list.
Please try and Enjoy!!!
