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.
The edgings could have been perfectly done but I got lazy 😛 😛
I hope you will go and watch guys!
I have made a very easy wall decoration made out of printed images. Yes, it is a photo bunting!
For the materials and easy steps, here it is …
I hope you like it, sweeties.
Since I have decided to really learn about MAKE-UP, I need to have a container wherein I can put some make-up brushes. Instead of buying, I re-purposed an empty plastic bottle and turned it into a charming brush container!
I don’t have a white paint so I just made use of my printed papers(like a mod podge).
empty(softdrinks)bottle, printed papers, old buttons, broken rose earring, pearl bead, craft knife, scissors, white glue, small brush, stick glue, marker
- I cleaned the plastic bottle and removed the label.
- I marked the bottle as a gauge for cutting.
- I cut it with a craft knife
4. I traced first from that part(to cover)of the bottle which has a curve until the down edge.
5. I cut the paper then on their edges(up and down) I made small cuttings so when i start gluing to the bottle, it can somehow follow the shape especially the curvy edge.
Initially, there will be wrinkles from the paper but they will somehow go after awhile once you cover them up with glue.
6. Then, I covered the remaining part of the bottle with the same process as number 5.
7. I made use of that broken rose earring as an accent then added a pearl bead and red and blue buttons.
F I N I S H E D!
How do you like my new project 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.
Sharpies, cheap white mugs, huge cooking vessel with a lid(if no oven), ethyl alcohol, pieces of cotton balls, pencil, blank paper, scissors
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 😛
- I washed the mugs to remove dirt then dry.
- I browsed on the internet for some cute designs as inspiration for my mugs designs.
- 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!
- 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.
- 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!
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.
- Acrylic gloss paint (for glass)
- Acrylic spray paint
- Small flat paint brush
- Small piece of sponge(I used for smudges)
- Paper plate to use as a palette
- Toothpicks to paint the small details
- Mason jars
- Jute strings(for accent/ornament)
- Wipe down the jars with alcohol to remove all dirt and oils.
- 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.
- While waiting for the paint to dry, paint the lids with acrylic spray.
- Surround the jar’s neck with jute string for an accent/ornament.
I hope you liked my work.
Christmas is just around the corner! Yeeeyyy! I thought of turning some of my wood clothespin into these cutie gift clippers(I don’t know what it is called. I am just guessing). I am still working on them at the moment. Still thinking of other designs to paint.
I just used watercolor and toothpicks for painting.
What is your project for this coming Christmas season?
