If you enjoy a nice relaxing bath, then these lavender bath melts will be right up your alley! All you have to do to use these melts is drop them in your bath, then lay back and enjoy! You can also use these in the shower - melt one in between your hands and massage into your skin. Sublime! And as always, you can substitute the lavender essential oil for any other scent - Aromaweb has a great guide!
Kimonos seem to be still going strong in fashion world - which I love because they are great for covering up arms, are lightweight and… I just like the look of them! But for some reason they’re so expensive for what is essentially a piece of fabric with a few stitches! Anna + Evers shows us how to make a kimono in two very easy steps - the hardest part will be finding your fabric!
I love everything Hunger Games - the books and the movies! So I totes love (haha, puns!) this bag by Whimseybox. The amazing art is by trebory6 - he’s created a seal for the Capitol and the 12 districts - just choose which one you want to represent (and don’t forget to say thank you for his amazing work!)
Though I absolutely adore these clay eggs, it wasn’t just them that made me want to share this DIY - it’s how they were created! Usually you bake polymer clay in the oven once you’re finished creating your design. But thicker pieces like these eggs would take a long time to bake and apparently discolour if baked too long. So One Dog Woof set these eggs by cooking them in the microwave in a quart of water! I’m wondering if anyone else has ever tried this technique and how it turned out? I’d love to try it but I’m scared of exploding my microwave!
I’m pretty sure y’all have a pair of shoes in your wardrobe that you love (or loved) but don’t wear anymore for a myriad of reasons - the colour is outdated, the heels are battered or they have just seen better days. Well with some fabric and Mod Podge, you can create your own custom pair of shoes - when you see the before pic for these shoes I think you will be as inspired as I was to DIY!
If you’re keen on making yourself a piece of jewelry but want to start with something easy, then this simple but fun faux horn is a great place to start! I love the gold dipped top (or you could do bronze, silver, pink!) You can leave it on it’s own on the necklace or add a couple of other charms to the mix. Whatever you decide, you’ll end up with a piece that’s as unique as you!

As someone with lovely pale British skin who lives in Australia, I know all too well the pain of sunburn. The worst part is when you lather yourself in sunscreen and still end up burnt! I’ve often heard that oatmeal is great for soothing burnt skin but I can’t say I’ve found pouring oats into a bath appealing…I’m just envisioning sitting in porridge! Well these lovely bath bombs take all that oaty goodness and put it into simple to use bath bomb form. And even if you don’t have sunburn, oats are great for soothing irritated skin. I would scent these bombs with Oatmeal, Milk & Honey scent for a warm, homey smell. These would be lovely to put into a take care kit with some intensive lip treatment, a hair treatment and an eye mask.
If you’re the kind of person who likes projects you can do in front of the telly (my hand is up!) then you’ll like this - cut out as many flowers, leaves and petals you want in whatever patterns & papers you want using the free templates and then use them to create this pretty wreath! Other uses for these pretty flowers? Stick them around a mirror or use them to decorate your gifts!
Here is an egg-cellent (puns!) round up of the best Easter crafts from one of my favourite blogs Oh Happy Day! My favourites are definitely the Easter egg pinatas and the calligraphy eggs - make sure to click through to see all 12 crafts!
Though this zig zag blanket stitch might take a bit of practice (my mum and I just had a ten minute conversation about how to do it, along with her drawing on her palm as a guide!) I still really want to have a go at creating this piece. If you’ve always wanted to make yourself a blanket then this is a great jumping off point, and great for practicing your embroidery skills (oh yeah, and it’s pretty too!)
This is one of my favourite IKEA hacks because honestly, unless someone told me that the cupboards were from IKEA I wouldn’t have known! The addition of the trim takes it from basic to classic - I’d expect this to cost a lot more than it ended up being. HPB painted the back of the cupboard with paint too which gives a nice depth and is a great backdrop for the books & decorative items. If you’re not keen on painting but want a similar effect, you could use wallpaper or wrapping paper tacked to the back (and you can remove it and change it up when you want to!)
This high-impact heart is one of the easiest things to create - all you’re going to need is some neon paper & a white frame. Perfect for a baby’s room, to add to a set of artwork you already have, or even for a bathroom as you won’t have to stress about heat/moisture affecting it!
Does your desktop need a makeover? I just realised I still had wallpaper from November… my poor computer, how embarrassing! It’s now sporting the lovely design in the bottom right corner, and looking much fresher and fun!
I’ve always loved tool sheds with peg board, all organised with the shadow painted behind each tool so you know exactly where it lives! And honestly, it just makes sense to do this in your craft room - I mean, you end up using a lot of tools that you’d find in a shed anyway! The colour block is a great way to organise by craft if you want to get super organised (or if you just want to add more colour to the room!).
