DIY Ring and Jewelry Holder

Happy Earth Day!

I was inspired by recycling (and recently ran out of my favorite face wipes), so I decided to reuse and repurpose some things laying around my room.

Taking the container, I decided to make a little box that I can put knick-knacks in!

All you need is:

  • a container
  • some kind of adhesive tape (duct tape, washi tape, masking tape) — I used the left over glitter paper from my first craft!
  • a sharpie

Image

First thing I did was take off the label. Once I had removed that, I covered it with the glitter adhesive!

Image

And on top I decided to write a cute little quote using a sharpie!

Image

And here is the final product!

Image

All in all, I am super excited with how this turned out!

I think any kind of jar or container like this really spruces up a boring desk.

Rating: 1/10 – the easiest project to date!

DIY Picture Display

This week I have been super homesick. Partially because I just went home for Easter weekend, I am so beyond ready to be back at home! I miss my family and my friends a lot. 

What better way to bring them back into my life and display them in my room than with pictures!

This way of displaying your pictures is super easy, cute, and affordable!

All you will need are:

  • ribbon
  • hot glue gun
  • pictures
  • scissors

First, cut a piece of ribbon to your liking. Then, take your ribbon and lay it out. At the top, fold over an edge to make a loop. Using your hot glue gun, glue it in place.

Making a loop allows you to hang your picture display! Next, take the photos you’ve chosen and space them out along the ribbon. Then, hot glue them in place. Once that dries, hang it up!

I love the way this looks hanging up on my wall! It is super easy and takes no time at all!

DIY Ocean Canvas

Hiya! This week’s craft is a painted canvas, inspired by the ocean. When I saw this one, I knew I had to make it. I mean, who doesn’t love puns and the ocean? All you will need are:

  • a canvas
  • pencil
  • paintbrushes
  • assorted colors of paint

The first step is to write out all of the words on the canvas. I chose to use my own handwriting, in both regular print and cursive, but you can do whatever you would like! Image

Next, I painted the background a gorgeous coral color. Again, the colors you choose are totally up to you!

Image

Then, since I could still see through the paint, I just traced over words with a skinny brush in different colors. I chose to do an ocean-y theme, so I started with green and went to blue.

Image

I also added some gold glitter. All in all, I love how this beach-y ocean craft turned out. I think it is perfect for summer and is great to brighten up any dull space!
