Make It: Do-It-Yourself Faceted Candles

By: Lexy.b.ward Mar 05, 2014

Geometric candle-making

Remember when you learned how to make beeswax candles when you were younger? I always thought that those were the only kind of candles one could make at home because the pretty ones just had to be store-bought! When I stumbled upon this candle-making tutorial, I was blown away at the two main supplies needed to create them! I… Continue Reading

How To: Make Graphic Cork and Leather Hanging Memo Boards

By: Capreek May 29, 2013

After recently completing our office makeover, I realized I needed somewhere to put all those random little notes and lists and other office-y bits. You know, something people like to call a "memo board". After looking around, the only options appeared to be giant rectangular boards, emphasis on giant. And rectangular. Since I like to keep things a little quirky (and colorful and covered in pattern), I decided to make my own!  … Continue Reading

By: Brittnimehlhoff May 28, 2013

Admittedly, I'm not a huge fan of the 'before' version of this Heritage table, from Amazon. It feels a little bulky and lacks personality. All that is about to change though because this table just got a face lift. Check out the… Continue Reading

How to: Make a DIY Faceted Wooden Gem Paperweight...or Decorative Object...or Whatever This Is

By: Chrisjob Jan 26, 2013

created at: 01/22/2013

I do as much as I can to stay paperless in my office. With online bill pay, shared online documents, lots of apps and software, and a general goal of wasting less, I can get pretty close, save for my trusty notebook and craft supplies. I've even moved my multi-tiered tray off my desk to create more working room.

By: Capreek Dec 28, 2012

created at: 12/26/2012

My facet-loving heart nearly exploded when these wall hooks showed up on my doorstep a few weeks ago. Always up to a DIY challenge, my good friend (and Curbly Editor-in-Chief) Chris was kind enough to create these from scratch when I asked him if he thought it was something he could pull off. Not only did he rise to the challenge, but he did it in a way that anyone with some basic woodworking skills could re-create for themselves!… Continue Reading
