DIY Projects on the List

A few DIY Projects that I can't wait to try (*ahem* finish)!

+ Still working on this wreath and had almost given up on finishing until I saw she had links to a tutorial for making the actual felt flowers... Maybe next week it will be done and photographed for you to enjoy as well. Did you try making one yet?

+ Absolutely LOVE this... so much so that I took two little ones to Lowe's today to pick up about 1,000 paint chips. I am hoping to make a focal art piece with the paint chips for my husbands office. He's out of town... a nice surprise for his return? Maybe. Hopefully. We shall see.

+ From The Whimsicle a beautiful and wonderfully creative idea. Am I becoming obsessed with yarn?! Strange. In college I took a textile design class where I may or may have woven a 6 ft x 6ft blanket. Crazy, I know. Even crazier is that my now husband would sit with me and keep me company for hours at the loom. I digress... that textile design class left me with a TON of yarn that I paid a lot of money for and spent a lot of time dying so I never had the heart to throw it out. So here we are 6 years later and 800 miles away and I have finally find a use for all that yarn... (I should mention that I am still unsure as to how to actually make these letters at his point...)

+ Drawer Hangers I have some really beautiful drawer pulls and hardware that I have hung on to for awhile now (do we see a trend? I have this habit of seeing potential in just about anything....) When I saw this post I knew exactly where I would hang such a project and that meant I had to make it. I have the scrap wood and the white paint so now I just need to actually put it all together. I can't wait to see this finally hanging on my wall.

. . .
What projects are you working on? I would love to hear!
I am always up for another...


  1. I am working on getting some art journals made. All of the ingredients are on my craft table. But that's as far as I can get, lol. J1 and J2 are keeping me quite busy ;) I also have a fun idea of making an Idea Journal - like a sketchbook- I've decided to start cutting ideas out of magazines -- have never wanted to cut up my magazines before, but after seeing some inspiration online to cut out ideas and inspiration...have decided I will... they are taking up too much room! :)

  2. The paint chip idea is SO creative! Love it. I would love to get a vintage couch (fairly beat up, cheap) and learn to reupholster it for photoshoots. Being that the red velvet ones I love are $750+ !

  3. I'd suggest possibly getting the styrofoam or cardboard letters from a craft store to yarn-wrap. I'm sure it will be really cool when you get it all done!
