This week, I put together a beautiful LOVE sign with plaster casts that I had made from molds of my granddaughter’s feet.Plaster Casting is easier than it looks and I would love to show you how to create your own beautiful memories with this simple project!
Here's a project that is inexpensive, yet looks nice and can be used for any season, or just to have as part of your home decor. What's even better is that you're turning something as mundane as Dollar Tree frames into useful lanterns! Candle lovers, this one is for you! :)We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers. Just so you know, Hometalk may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.
If you know me, you know I love creating and making things out of PVC pipe. I've made many different birds and also a few other new animals like a dog, cat and frog. They are so much fun to make and are a great item to sell at craft fairs, farmers markets, etc.But I've got another new PVC pipe project to share with you - our PVC people! The best part about these little guys is that you can customize them however you want. My favorite one is the little girl pictured here and one where I painted a Packers "G" on a shirt.
WD-40 removes, protects, & loosens so many things. It contains silicone which is one of the things that makes this so special. My dad owns a body shop and he was the first person who introduced it to me. I thought I would share a few ways I use it with you... You can see more of my crazy creations here
Do you like secret hiding places? If you do, this easy project may be for you and better yet, it goes together in about an hour.
If you look at this picture you may think this is a post for a great upcycled bookend. But, if you looked at the title, you would know that it’s actually the books that are repurposed. Can you see the lockbox sitting on the shelf?
Megan at 'the homes I have made' transformed her bedroom with painted furniture and new accessories. What I found striking in this room setting is the metallic silver mirror. Bought for over $120 (R1000), you can easily make this beautiful mirror at a fraction of the cost with a few materials and supplies that can be found at your local hardware store
With winter in full swing, you’ll love these ideas for our Material of the Week: chunky yarn! Grab your supplies and get cozy, because these chunky knit projects will have you wishing for snow days, logs crackling in the fireplace and your favorite hot cocoa :) You can get chunky yarn here!
I (steph) went to see the movie Wonder Woman a few weeks ago with my family. I didn't know much about the superhero going in, so the first time I saw the glowing rope I didn't know what it was, but it looked cool! Wonder Woman has this glowing yellow/gold rope that is called a magic lasso or lasso of truth. The first time I saw it in the movie, I thought it looked like el wire. Electroluminescent wire (el wire) produces 360 degrees of light and is often used in costumes. I have been wanting to use it in a DIY project. During the movie I came up with an idea of making a lamp out of it- inspired by the Wonder Woman film!
Today, I am so excited to finally share a project that lil dude and I have been working on.
We have actually been slowly but surely giving his bedroom a makeover. We've repainted the walls, built an entertainment/gaming station, built a Lego table and several other decor items for the walls. But the biggest and most time consuming project thus far has been the headboard.
I used up all the oyster sauce the last time I cooked and as I was about to throw it in the recycling bin, I figured it had a really nice form. So I placed it aside first and when I was ready to work on some DIY, I repurposed this sleek looking bottle.
I’m pretty sure you have some nice looking bottle of sauce in your pantry, so when you use up all the contents do not throw it just yet, give this diy a try.
Sometimes it just happens, despite my best intentions, a paint brush dries to a crisp. There are ways to clean a brush, and some tricks to get out dried paint - but there are times it's just no use. If you paint a lot you may have a whole collection of these brushes (is it just me??!). So one day I decided to make something with these brushes - why not turn them into something beautiful.That's how the paint brush wreath was born.
My grandparents’ built this bench YEARS ago along with two others that I have. ( Check out the cedar-lined beauty I keep at the end of my bed.) This one has taken the biggest beating over the years and has needed to be fixed and refinished for awhile now. Every month the group I’m a part of (the Farmhouse Hens Decorate) has a theme. This month’s theme turned out to be for benches so I knew exactly the piece I would be using!Those bite marks are actually from my dog Diesel lolFunny, he was a 120 pound mastiff and could have easily opened the lid with his nose anytime he wanted. (I kept his food and treats in there.) If he had just helped himself to a treat I never would have known but no he just chewed on it lol
