I recently went on a mini vacation and saw some gorgeous boho clothing and accessories! After looking at some of the expensive price tags, I thought; "How hard could it be to make some of these things myself?" Then I received the Boye Pom Pom and Tassel Maker and attended a maker workshop at CLFair with Boye/Simplicity's Michele Muska. She showed us how to use it and I was hooked. As soon as I got home I started using mine. I sketched up some ideas, took a trip to Joanns Stores for trims, floss and grabbed $5 sandals from Five Below, the result are these Boho Style Sandals using the Boye Pom Pom and Tassel Maker with DMC Floss. Fast and easy, no sewing, just fabric glue. First I will show you how to make the mini tassels using the Boye Pom Pom Tassel Maker. Then how to put all the pieces together to make these sandals. This machine is perfect for making pom poms and tassels for pillows, curtains, baskets, bags, clothing, shoes and more.
Currently the hottest trends in several industries are tropical, summer fruits such as pineapples and watermelons. Some desert spice with cacti and succulents. Don't leave out galaxy magic with stars and geometric shapes. Enchanting 80s icons such as rainbows, unicorns and confetti. Tasty treats liLe popsicles and donuts. In today’s post I'd like to share with you a series of painted concrete bowls that I created. The beauty of this project is you can use Plaster of Paris or Paper Mache if Concrete isnt available. 2 sized bowls instead of a bowl mold. Even get inspired to paint the outside of glass bowls with glass paint to resemble these... Now all you need to do is sit back, relax, grab a cuppa and get inspired. You're concrete adventure is about to begin. I warn you, watermelons, strawberries and donuts may appear causing a sweet tooth craving....Don't say I didn't warn you...Lets get started…..
