If you love crafting (and I'm guessing you do, if you're looking at Curbly right now!) then perhaps you've heard of an embroidery tool called a punch needle. I hadn't heard of it until recently, but I'm now a convert. It produces a raised texture using small loops, and it goes quite quickly thanks to the ingenious design of the needle. Today I'm sharing what I've learned about punch needle embroidery so you can get started with this fun needle art process!

Happy February to all! I still catch myself asking what the date is because I feel like January just happened in a blink of an eye - am I right? Which basically means Valentine's day is going to be here in no time! And I'm super pumped about it this year because we are celebrating a very special evening with all my gal pals for a Boho Valentine's night out! To me, this holiday is meant to really appreciate the ones you love. And guys, that...
I was in high school when I was first drawn to embroidering. I wasn't inspired by traditional embroidering, like a well-phrased cross-stitch pattern or a picturesque embroidered landscape. It was doodling with thread that got me hooked. I started by stitching random shapes and designs into my favorite pair of jeans, adding new accents at random. But, I stitched them in a way that only made me happy. By that I mean, if I looked down at my pants, all the shapes were right-side up. So if someone were to look at me, they would see a bunch of upside-down rainbows and clouds and random words and a girl who was very proud of her creativity. I'm positive it looked insane, but I still think embroidering your clothes is a good idea. Today we're going to start small and look at an embroidered beanie, so don't worry - your jeans are safe.
2017 has been an exciting year, and we here at Curbly have had the opportunity to do some pretty cool stuff over the past twelve months (I don't know if you heard, but we flipped a freaking house!). In addition to making over the original Curbly home, hosting an art show for a bunch of 2nd graders, going to and speaking at Alt Summit, and painting all the things - the Curbly team created a bunch of fun, original projects, too. Today we're taking a look back at the best DIY projects of the year. These are the projects that you, our readers, visited and liked the most, in addition to some that we just think are real spiffy. Let's go!
Can you believe it? Christmas is next week already! The holiday season always seems to whizz right by, doesn't it? If you're feeling like you've missed out on the festivities, don't fret - there's still enough time to make some last-minute baubles and bits. We've rounded up a few (well, not a few - 84 to be exact!) of our favorite DIY Christmas ornaments that you can definitely get finished this weekend, and enjoy for Christmases yet to come.
December is one of my favorite times of the year, but there is something about all of the spending and consequent waste (shipping boxes, gift wrap, etc.) that rubs me the wrong way. So I thought it would be fun to decorate a tree using recycled paper and cardboard, and I'm sharing three mini tutorials with you today. Click through to check it out.
If you've started your holiday shopping already, then you're probably starting to think about wrapping your presents.

I think it's safe to say Christmas is upon us, and holiday decorating is my favorite time of year! As fun as it is to decorate my home, I tend to stray away from traditional reds and greens for Christmas, so I incorporated pink and a light green color into my decorating with this DIY dipped ornament display that fits in perfectly to my dining room gallery wall. Using lightweight plastic ornaments and twine, this almost-rustic piece of decor...
How soon is too soon to put up a Christmas tree? Because I wanted to put mine up at 12:00 am on November 1st. We usually do a live pine tree at my house, so we have a few more weeks to go until we can put one up and not have it be a fire hazard by December 25th. In the meantime, however, I've been scrounging up ornaments, garlands, and lights to decorate with. Maybe this is a little extra, but I like to change up the theme of my tree every year! This year I made three different Christmas ornaments, each using a different Dremel tool from our oh-so-handy combo kit.
