I've seen a lot of stencil projects, but honestly, not one has really made me want to break out my paint brush and actually do it. Until now. I can't find my brushes fast enough.
They say good things come in small packages. So I can only imagine what's hiding inside this tiny present. It must be pretty awesome. And you can make your own version of these little guys, without the help of a magnifying glass.
A quick trip to the hardware store will yield all the materials you need for this unique, modern side table!
A beautiful and deceptively simple way to make your holiday gifts stand out in a crowd is by dressing them up with a woven topper. The one pictured above gives the recycled newsprint under it new life. Christmas or Hanukkah colors would be my pick for this time of year, but Roy G. Biv looks cool too. (I guess that would be Roy G. Bv in this case.) For complete instructions do the click here to visit Minieco.
I'm a father to two little people. Since my eldest is only 2.5 years old, this limits a lot of the craft projects out there that require power tools (though the man in me can't wait till he comes of age to enjoy them!). This simple project is something we can tackle together and relatively safe (look, no scissors!) and particularly festive.
It's suggested that you use a hotglue gun, but you can...
Curbly recently had the great pleasure of creating a series of Mid-Century Modern holiday decorations for DIY Network, including everything from ornaments to stockings to wreaths. We'll be sharing the projects one-by-one. This week's DIY holiday project? Awesome space-age stockings! Check it out!
Dressing up our Christmas Tree is one of my favorite times of year. Everyone gets involved, and after hours of stringing lights just perfectly, sentimental ornaments are pulled carefully from their packaging and placed with precision on the tree (or, as much precision as a 3- and 5-year-old can muster). The last step for our family is tucking the tree skirt under the tree- and this year we needed something new, like a no-sew Snowflake tree skirt! Read on to see how I easily made this in one nap time.
Bonjour! Let's make some teeny tiny marquee lights! Maybe in a more season-appropriate "Cheer" or "Christmas" or "Happy Holidays" perhaps? Whatever word you choose to run with, here's how!
Things are starting to get real festive around these parts! If you're looking for some fun tabletop trees that lean a bit towards the modern side, I've got just the project for you! These wooden trees are super easy to make and can be left plain or customized to your heart's content. Check 'em out!

We've seen wall art made using toilet paper rolls before, but I think this is my favorite application of the technique. A simple, modern wreath. The original post is in
It's hard to believe that we are under a month away from Christmas. If you're anything like me you leave things to the last minute, so if you haven't already, now's the time to get baking that Christmas Cake!
The sofa table exists primarily because no one wants to look at the back of a couch. And granted, it’s a handy place for reading lamps and perhaps some photos or display-worthy books. But the problem, for some of us at least, is that a sofa table feels a little too traditional and grown-up, sort of like joining a country club or driving an automatic.

I love living right across the street from the public library. Sure, it makes checking out and returning things a breeze (and late fees inexcusable), but there's another benefit. Every six weeks or so, when I see the "Friends of Library Book Sale" sign hit the sidewalk, I can scootch right over and snag the best goodies for a cool 25¢ each.
Okay, so I don't know how to knit and I've never tried. But, holy cow, if this giant knit blanket doesn't make me want to learn STAT!
