DIY Idea – My Jackson Pollock shirt

DIY idea Jackson Pollock shirt

My Jackson pollock shirt was created last summer and I never came around sharing it with you. But today is the day and for some of you it is summer so it might be come in at the right time. And for everyone else well, save the idea maybe you feel like getting creative once the weather gets a bit warmer again. This DIY idea I recommend doing outside.

When my best friend and her kids visited me in our country home in summer 2021 we were thinking about doing an afternoon with crafts. This was the DIY idea we had planned. In the end we didn’t have time doing it and I was left with the materials. So when my craft buddy Nicole asked if we would meet in the little park in front of her house for a crafting afternoon this was the project I wanted to tackle.

Modern natural Wreath with acorn hats

Welcome to my annual wreath celebration. I just checked and it is my elevens wreath idea I share on this blog. So I have done a lot of new interpretations within the last years. After last years recycling idea I felt more natural this time around. That is why a modern natural wreath with acorn hats was created in some hours of labor.

When I was walking in the park in fall I kept coming across the acorns. You all probably know that the hats keep on falling off even when you manage to find an intact one. As kid it always bothered me. Of course you can glue them back on but it is not the same somehow. Anyhow I had a closer look at the hats and found they are a beauty in themselves. So I collected a few and carried them in my pocket. Through the next days I kept touching them and sometime I came up with the idea that they should be the star in this years natural wreath.

Homemade Eucalyptus Scrub

It’s winter. It’s mostly gray. And we are still living through lockdowns, stay-at-home orders, a pandemic… I am certain we can use some self-care. Also it’s been a while since I shared one of my scrub recipes here. I decided to create a new one: Homemade Eucalyptus Scrub. You are welcome.

I came up with this wintery scrub when I had to look my killed eucalyptus plant I had on my balcony. Every time I passed the dried eukalyptus twigs they still smelled so good and breaking up the leaves was intensifying it. Sometimes the most fun things are born because you see one thing for a long time.

Recycling advent wreath – with a concrete finish

This year I a believe we all have increased our share of online shopping. I for one am guilty of it. With the shopping comes a lot of packaging material and when I looked at the growing pile I tried to come up with a few ideas to a) decrease the pile and b) what to make with it. That resulted in my annual wreath and I am quite excited to share my recycling advent wreath with a concrete finish. Going for a different look this year.
