Besides fashion and working out I love little DIY craft projects. It is all Pinterest’s fault!! Pinning cute ideas allows me to be my inner child. Every once in a while I will go on a Pinterest craft spree and this happens to be one of those times. I am going to share some of my recent craft projects. I will link the original projects for the step by step break down. Hope you enjoy my final products as well as the products of those who created before me.
When I saw this pinned on Pinterest, immediately I knew it was a “must craft”. The pin comes from the blog: ” Stamp 48″ (stamp48). For my scarf, I used a Tulip fabric marker. Stamp 48 recommended Tee Juice and after making my scarf I think I am going to try the Tee Juice brand next time. I think I may also try a scarf that is made of a heavier fabric.
I chose a quote by Joanne Harris, which I felt describe me. It is a quote that expresses how I view myself.
“She always had that about her, that look of otherness, of eyes that see things, much too far, and of thoughts that wander off the edge of this world” ~Joanne Harris
Framed Chicken Wire Board
Yes, it is a Pinterest find!!! I wanted a snazzy bulletin board for my office, so I began my search. While pinning I came across a pin on babble.com for a Chicken Wire Memo board. I felt this would be a piece for my office. This project is supper easy, however the hardest part is finding a frame that fits your personality as well as your decor. I found mine at Hobby Lobby on clearance.
Spray paint (color of your choice for the frame)
Chicken wire (you can choose to stain the wire to a finish that soots you)
Tissue Pom Poms
Yet again another Pinterst project. I decided to dable into the pom pom world. I wanted to add some spice to my office space. I thought making pom poms would be a synch. Think again, these things take some talent and extra finesse. I found my tutorial on Tara Dennis. You can see some of my DIY tissue pom poms in the pictures above and in the picture I posted for the Memo board.
Tacs (for hanging)
Handy Garden Tools-Use for a Rake
I was in search of ideas for hanging my necklaces when I came across the garden rake. I was googling ideas and Hearts and Tarts popped up with an image of necklaces hanging from an old rake. I thought to myself “why hadn’t I thought of that!” I asked my dad for one of his old rakes to clean up and use. I am still debating on the future paint color of the rake holder, for now it is still in its rustic form. I would also like to embellish the handle, but have yet to give it much thought.
