This DIY is specifically for my friend Anna who is getting married and trying to save costs by DIYing (which seems to be more and more popular these days!) We were talking about marquee lights and Anna mentioned how expensive they were to hire, so I told her I would find a DIY for her instead - and here it is. So amazing and
I’m all about tassels - on tshirts, bags, skirts, shoes… pillows, curtains, vases, you name it! The nice thing about these tassels is that they are made from soft tshirt fabric so you can pop them anywhere. As My Poppet suggests, they would be great made into bunting, or make some mini ones for your Chrissy tree!
Sunday Afternoon Playlist | 4th Nov 2013
It might be Monday but that hasn’t stopped me from sharing a playlist! It’s quite a relaxed list today - perfect for this gorgeous weather we’re having right now. Favourite newbies are Broods & Oliver Tank (and of course I’ll share anything by the amazing Lorde!)
Lovely Indeed has a great regular on her blog called ‘Washi Wednesday’ where she features different washi tape DIYs. This one is my favourite - because who doesn’t love fringe?! How fun would this be to tape up presents, decorate bookshelves… I’m sure you can think of a few to add to the list!
A Beautiful Mess recently posted a great tutorial on how to set up a gallery wall, and one print that caught my eye (and everyone else apparently!) was this awesome ‘I Love Boring Things’ quote by Andy Warhol. ABM has kindly shared this print, so skip on over to download!
I know, I know, there’s only two months left of the year, but what really caught my eye with this DIY calendar was the pom pom decorations hanging off of it! It may be too late for a calendar, but you could still make this hanging with a pretty art print.
White & gold seems to be the combo du jour right now, and I love it! And it fits so many different decors. You’ll have fun searching through your house for the best ‘imprints’ though I have to say I love the swirly necklace imprint, perfect for all your trinkets and jewels.
Inspired by the art of Kristina Krogh, this lovely textured art is made from paper, glue and wood. Search the web for your textures (Whimseybox used a mix of glitter, marble and wood) and download the free template from Whimseybox to make your own work of art!
I always get a lot of Asks near Christmas on cheap, bulk gifts so I’m always on the eye out. These keychains only take a few different items to make and you can set up a production line to knock out a bunch.
OK, so these ‘gilded’ coasters are incredibly easy to create (mainly because FPG purchased them as coasters already) but I still think they are worth sharing - they’re so pretty!
If you’re wanting to try out yarn bombing, why not start at home with this awesome DIY!? I would love something like this as decoration in my house. If you had a small and sturdy enough branch you could even use it to hang your keys!
Afternoon Tea! #pinkicedcupcakesarebetter
If you love twix bars, you’ll love this recipe! And you’ll love the fact that it’s so easy to make too - you could knock out a couple of trays in a day. Great to make for a Halloween party or… for yourself. I won’t tell.
My daily ‘uniform’ is basically a dress, a cardigan and tights, so I love tight DIYs! And these ones are cute to boot - I’m thinking maybe little stars would work great as well?
Though tv shows will tell us that couple costumes are the worst, I still think they’re super fun. But what’s not super fun is if your costume only makes sense if you’re with your partner and they ditch you. Awkward. That’s why I love Keiko’s couple costume - you’ll still look adorable even if you part.
