I think the idea to make a DIY jewelry display is in my mind since I signed up for Pinterest in 20xx. Ok, maybe that was a bit overly dramatic but it is close. I always new I wanted to make some sort of hanging display for my earrings but didn’t quite know what I wanted or needed. I had a many ideas I walked through in my head but I never took steps to actually make them. As Mr. ♡ decided to throw out this newly bought IKEA Stockholm Tray because it didn’t quite fit in his office I snatched it up. After a few more months cluttering the apartment I finally went to work.➢ KEEP ON ReadING
Do you like coffee in the morning? I certainly do. If you are a coffee lover you will love this homemade coffee cinnamon scrub. It’s like having coffee under the shower. And lets be honest that’s one invention we could use…
Besides tasting amazing coffee is also said to have a few benefits when it comes to beauty and skin care. Studies by a new Danish biorefinary have shown, that only 1% of coffees bioactive compounds of coffee have been taking advantage of when brewing it. Meaning the caffein is diluted but the rest is just going to waste. Seriously what a waste? They re-purpose the left over coffee grounds so they can be used in cosmetic products and the food industry. So interesting.➢ KEEP ON READING
My favorite season is slowly but steadily coming closer and today I want to share a quick and easy tutorial with you. It’s a Scented Wall Hanging made of orange peel. Because now is the time to eat lots of vitamins and so we’ve got peels to recycle. And it is a good way to slowly start decoration for Advent without overdoing it.
All you need for this craft idea is some oranges or mandarines, a cookie cutter of your preference and some yarn.➢ KEEP ON READING
I just realized it’s been ages since my last recycle quick tip.
Last year I was lucky to win one of Annette’s calendars. Well 2016 is over and I really thought the calendar was too cute to just hand it over to the trash bin. So: What to do with old calendars? I asked myself.
Why not make postcards…
Well the how to is too easy but still here it is:
- find an old postcard for measurements
- get out a craft knife and cutting mat
- Figure out what part of the calendar you want to use
- cut away
- draw the backside – remember to meet legal requirements, you don’t want your card to be returned to you.
Here you find German requirements.
- write postcard and make someone happy
Well that’s what I did with my calendar. I also have a couple nice photo calendars which will be put into frames.
What your you doing with old calendars? Let me know in the comments.
I’ve to admit I am not that crazy about bracelets. While I love how they look I find them rather unpractical. But maybe just because I sit on the computer all day typing away.
But every once in a while I totally need bracelets. Like now! But then – of course – I don’t find any I like or they are too small.
So I came up with a fun idea on how to make me some. And of course I share!
What you need:
♥ Old Pringles package
♥ Fabric and leather scraps
♥ Textile glue
♥ Scissors & cutter
Getting them done is quite easy. First cut a ring off of the Pringles tube. Make sure it’s the same heights all throughout. I found this was the hardest part of the whole project.
Now cut yourself a piece of fabric with double the width and the length as according to the ring.
When done just glue the fabric on the outside of the tube. Make sure you place it in the middle of the ring.
When everything is dry fold in remaining fabric and glue tight. You might wanna make some cuts into the fabric s you can glue it without and folds and crinkles.
Depending on fabric you used and how neat you’ve been working you might want to cover up the seam with a ribbon or something fancy. I haven’t done so yet but might go ahead and do that later.
I found working with a woolknit was the easiest and gave the most professional look. Leather (my initial project) did not really knock me off my feet.
Now, let’s see your version!
