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

Make It: DIY Potato Print Textiles

By: Capreek Aug 02, 2012

created at: 08/02/2012
Making your own printed textiles couldn't be easier (or more fun)! So, grab a potato or two and let's start stampin'.    

Just like with that awesome potato print wall art, this project involves carving the desired shape into a potato and then stamping to your heart's content. But this time, you'll use acrylic craft paint on a clean tea towel. Easy, right?

I love the simple geometric pattern Lexy from The Proper Pinwheel used… Continue Reading

How to: Make DIY Colorful Paint-Dipped Flower Vases

By: Chrisjob Jul 10, 2012

created at: 06/27/2012

In my house, white walls are de rigueur. Why? Well, mostly cause my landlord says so, but I also dig the fresh, clean Scandinavian vibe they lend. But, with pure white walls and lots of white furniture, I try to bring in pops of color with accessories whenever I can so I don't feel like I'm living in an art museum. So, I love to take store-bought materials and add a little extra color for a customized, handmade look.   I've had these… Continue Reading

How To: Make a DIY Gold Paint-Dipped, Faux-Porcelain Bowl (from Scratch!)

By: Capreek Dec 06, 2011

created at: 12/05/2011

Metallics have been all the rage for the last few years, but 2011 was the year they really shined (heh).  So, like any dutiful design blogger, I decided to apply the trend to a simple DIY project and even mixed in some paint dipping shenanigans to boot!  It's a regular ol' trend explosion up in this joint--but classy, of course.  Always classy.   

This faux-porcelain, (faux) gold-dipped bowl (well, it's more of a dish, really), is capital E-A-S-Y.  My clay molding skills haven't been put to much use since I was about the age of 7, and even I could pull this off.  If you're ready to dive in and start DIYing your way to trend heaven, here's what you'll… Continue Reading

Creepy, Crafty Glow-in-the-Dark Yarn.

By: Chrisjob Oct 21, 2008

Perfect for upcoming Halloween crafts, safety, or for the emerging knitting/rave scene (it could happen....), Bernat's has introduced glow-in-the-dark yarn. Available in six shades, it'd be great from the obvious spider-web creation to full-blown crocheted trick-or-treat costumes (though I suggest you get started). I look forward to seeing some finished and fully-charged projects.

Via.
