Upcycle Your World! | CD Cases & Spindles

If you were born before MP3’s, you probably have a stack of CD cases sitting around, gathering dust and getting more brittle by the day. And if you’re born after MP3’s, you probably have CD spindles sitting around too! Well instead of chucking them in the bin, Upcycle those babies into something special. I particularly like the little CD glass house - so cute!

Shelf System | Scandi Home
Now I am grown and have the value of hindsight, I really wish I had paid more attention in Tech Studies! I actually remember thinking ‘I’m never going to need to know how to build a birdhouse when I’m an adult, this is a waste’. But I think that even though I failed at the birdhouse, I still think I could make this shelf system. If you’re like me and not great with the whole sawing wood thing, get your pieces cut to size first before you attempt this! There are so many places that this would come in handy - the bathroom, office, lounge room - any room really!

Pocket Book | Design Is Yay
Whenever I’m out and about and really need a pen and piece of paper to write on, I can gaurantee that I will have a pen… but no paper. I used to carry post-its but they dissapeared, and they’re not great for keeping notes permanently! Not only are these notebooks pretty, but so practical - a great alternative to post its! Go on over to DIY and download the set - keep one for yourself and give the others away (or keep them for yourself, I’m sure you’ll find a use for them!)

Twist Tie Bunny Ears | The House That Lars Built
If you celebrate Easter in your family but don’t want to overload the little ones with chocolate, these twist tie bunny ears are a great gift that is super easy to make! In the same style as the retro twist head ties that I’m seeing everywhere these ears in pink & white have a piece of wire inserted inside so you can fashion them in to a pair of big bunny ears. So fun and great for girls and boys!

Giant Crepe Paper Peony | Carte Fini
If you’re looking for decorations for a wedding or party with big impact, you can’t go past this amazing giant crepe paper peony! The big petals are layered around a paper mache base. Yes, it would take a while to create this, but if you are making it for a wedding or party, you can keep it afterwards to decorate with!

Ombre Stenciled Pillowcases | Lula Louise
I love the combination of embroidery and fabric paint on these pillowcases! Because the design is just on the edges of the cases it doesn’t overwhelm the rest of the patterns on the bed. If you wanted you could make these in colours to suit the linens you already have, or if you’re looking for a challenge you could use these as a jumping off point to making your own bed set!
