In the past couple days I’ve shared some fun projects with Paper Mart and I wanted to combine them all into one round-up in case you missed any. Instead of the typical candy or chocolates, use your creativity and surprise your honey (or make some pretty decor!) with these ideas:
DIY Valentine’s Day Jeweled Wreath
DIY Valentine’s Day Labeled Glass Bottles
DIY Valentine’s Day Crepe Paper Peony Flowers
Thank you to Paper Mart for supplying the materials to make these projects!
Happy DIY’ing – and Happy Valentine’s Day!
So ladies…right now button-down shirts in blousy, dressy shapes are all the rage. I’m loving it because that means my Men’s Shirts DIY’s are once again totally topical! (The posts may be a little older and photos not great, but you can still follow along!)
Here’s how to get your craft on with 5 different projects to makeover a man’s shirt into a super-cute DIY piece for yourself:
DIY Cute Summer Shirt Dress (from a Man’s Shirt)
DIY Babydoll Dress (from 2 Men’s Shirts)
DIY Convertible Skirt (from 3 Men’s Shirts)
DIY Jumpsuit Romper (from a Man’s Shirt)
DIY Bustier Dress (from a Man’s Shirt)
from my Instagram: my sorbet peonies in my backyard bloomed! So gorgeous. Follow me on Instagram
Hello again, friends!
I hope everyone had a wonderful week, and a Happy Memorial Day (if you celebrate it).
I have been without Internet for almost a full week…since last Monday there was a lightning storm, lightning struck near my house, made a surge, and apparently fried the circuitboard in my home’s cable junction box. And Frontier couldn’t get someone out to look at it until Friday afternoon. For someone who lives most of their life online, it was extremely hard to figure out how to deal with getting my work done when I had no internet from home…and was maxed out on my data plan on my cell phone for the month. XP
But now I’m back, with some cool links of note from last week. IFB again was kind enough to include my DIY Pearl and Spike Chain Choker in the link roundup…so here are other cool links of note:
