THREE #DIY WALL DECOR IDEAS

Hi, sweeties!

I have got three wall decor ideas that are fun and easy to do. Two of them are made from cardboard or carton boxes and the other one is a flower decorated string lights.

If you want to see how I made them you can watch at my YOUTUBE CHANNEL. The narration is in my native language but you can fully understand the instruction by merely watching the video. I hope you will also subscribe though. Thank you :* .

Here is the link.

Re-purposed Tin Can(Valentine’s Day gift)

Hi, sweeties!

It is 5 days away to Valentine’s day! Excited? Not me :'(. I am single and I am happy. Anyways, I want to share what I made last night as a Valentine’s gift to a friend. Last time, she mentioned that she wants something that she can stuff her precious things. Since, I am broke, I thought of gifting her that but in a most pocket friendly way :P.

There was this old tin can which was just lying in my cupboard(perfume packaging from Body Shop). I thought of making it into something useful so I can gift it to her. So, I came up with this (I guess) pretty vintage inspired re-purposed tin can.

 

20170208_225840-01-01

Materials:

tin can, kraft paper(you can use any printed paper also depending on the design that you want), paper napkins, music note printed paper, fabric lace, pearl beads, white glue, thin brush, stick glue, pencil, scissors, needle and thread, any printed word that you want, I used “HAPPINESS”, jute string and button

How to:

After covering the lid, from top to side around, I started accentuating it.

On how I made the spiral rose, you can refer here http://tallystreasury.com/2011/05/paper-orchids-and-spiralled-paper-roses/

16508881_10210812283639145_2802582109509590870_n

I used a paper napkin(which I got from a restaurant 😛 ^_^)in making the spiralled paper rose then I glued a pearl bead in the center of it. I made three of them.

Then I started to work on the lid by gluing halfway center across a fabric lace then placed the three flowers beside it. I cut a butterfly and a feather from the music note printed paper. Also her initial which is “M” with a heart on it(stitched around) I added a jute string on the feather’s stem and a button on top of it. Then I cut the word Happiness.

PRESTO!

#DIY Sharpie Mugs

Hi, Sweeties!

Actually, this post was supposed to be posted in December but since I became too busy, I totally forgot about it. Sorry again 😦

These Sharpie Mugs were ordered by a friend to gift officemates on their Christmas party.

14642580_10209636004392899_382304466_n

Materials:

Sharpies, cheap white mugs, huge cooking vessel with a lid(if no oven), ethyl alcohol, pieces of cotton balls, pencil, blank paper, scissors

How to:

Note: I don’t have an oven. I baked them in a huge cooking vessel with a lid on medium to low fire for an hour 😛

  1. I washed the mugs to remove dirt then dry.
  2. I browsed on the internet for some cute designs as inspiration for my mugs designs.
  3. I directly drew on the mugs. I used the ethyl alcohol dropped in a piece of cotton ball in erasing when it was needed.*You can also draw your design first on a piece of paper then scribble VERY HARD the backside(of the drawing) then place the paper on top of the area of the mug where you want the design to be placed with the scribbled part under then start tracing over your drawing(like stenciling). The pencil led will get stuck on the mug which will give you the chance to trace that using your sharpie and get an awesome outcome! SMART!
  4. I let them dry overnight then started baking not in an oven but on a stove(I am so smart 😛 ). I heated the vessel first then filled in my mugs and covered. At first, it was in medium fire then I lowered it. I waited for 1 hour then cooled them down. If you have an oven, you are lucky! The  oven baking varies in time. I am really not sure. I am just sharing how I baked mine.
  5. Tested them for washing. I hand-washed them with dishwashing soap and sponge but I get rid of the design as much as possible. It worked. The designs didn’t fade!

I hope you learned something unusual ^_^, sweeties!

#DIY Mod Podge Shoe/Shirt Boxes(repurposed)

HELLO! Yes, it is me again, sweeties.

I really want to be productive while sitting home. I was clearing some unwanted stuffs and I saw these empty shoe box and shirt boxes(which I got from an online shop). I admit my crafting tools/stuffs are everywhere! I barely get time to nicely keep them because I am a working woman and I only get a little bit of time during my off days(and that is just once a week). This is also the reason why I am on and off in posting and showcasing my DIY ideas or how you may call it(lols). I am just waiting for something at this time that is why I am a free woman for couple and couple of days!! Yey!

Ok, so here it is now. I am presenting my new repurposed items where I can organize and stuff my crafting tools and the likes.

16143168_10210684980416644_5745099016010938221_n

Materials:

Empty boxes, printed papers(got the prints online ^_^ downloaded and copy pasted them in an A4 size paper then print!), lace for the accent, glue(I just used an ordinary white glue)a brush, glue stick, pencil for tracing and masking tape(optional).

YES, THIS IS ME 😛

16114270_10210684989216864_7118683739244365212_n16195233_10210684985016759_2826541993533089553_n

How to:

  1. I traced the size of every corner of the boxes that needed to be covered then cut.
  2. I applied a good a mount of glue then pasted the paper on each part(I did not cover the inside because I am a big time lazy specimen!)
  3. You can think of how you want to mix match your printed papers or create a design out of them like what I did. Example is that music note prints. I cut some rose prints and pasted them on top of that. Then on the other box, I pasted two different prints and on the third box, I glued a piece of lace. It is up to you. BE CREATIVE!
  4. I poured an amount of glue with a sufficient part of water which I think I could apply for the whole three boxes. This will give the finish of a mod podge. Left to dry for sometime then PRESTO!

You can now start digging for old/empty shoe boxes or any box which you can make use of sweeties. I guarantee you, they are really pretty and functional. I am just beginning to stuff my things in them and I am so happy!

I hope you liked this post.

#DIY HAND-Painted Mason Jars

Hello, Sweeties!

I have got another thing that’s keeping me busy. Aside from the clothespin, I am at the moment into this as well.

These painted mason jars can be used in many ways. They can be candle holders or you can stuff them with little things(whatever you want that can fit in) then cover-up with their lids.

14625399_10209636003192869_1162524964_n

Supplies:

  • Acrylic gloss paint (for glass)
  • Acrylic spray paint
  • Small flat paint brush
  • Small piece of sponge(I used for smudges)
  • Alcohol
  • Paper plate to use as a palette
  • Toothpicks to paint the small details
  • Mason jars
  • Jute strings(for accent/ornament)

Instructions:

  1. Wipe down the jars with alcohol to remove all dirt and oils.
  1. Start with the design that you want. At the moment, I chose snowman(it will be in variations) then with my favorite fruits, watermelon and strawberry. There are plenty of designs that you can think of.  Let dry.
  2. While waiting for the paint to dry, paint the lids with acrylic spray.
  3. Surround the jar’s neck with jute string for an accent/ornament.
  4. FINISHED.
