Supplies:

  • Sunnies
  • Scrapbooking resin roses

  2. Apply small dabs of Epoxy glue on the back of the resin roses, and one at a time, place them on the top of the sunglasses frame. Let the glue dry for 24 hours before wearing!

DIY Embroidered Easter Eggs

DIY Embroidered Easter Eggs 1

DIY Embroidered Easter Eggs

Supplies:

  • Large plastic Easter eggs — Note: You’ll want eggs that open length-wise from top to bottom, not in the very middle of the egg.
  • Drill + drill bit — Note: Use a drill bit as small as you can manage to thread a needle and thread through
  • Quilting needle
  • Embroidery thread, various colors
  • Scotch tape
  • Sharpie
  • Printed Clipart
  1. Start by printing off some Clipart — for example, I printed off a rainbow, a flower, and a butterfly — that will fit on the front of your egg.
  2. Cut out your Clipart.
  3. Loop pieces of Scotch tape, and stick them onto the back of your cut-out Clipart. Position and stick down the tape and the Clipart onto the front of the egg.
  4. Use the Sharpie to “trace” your Clipart, but instead of tracing, you’ll be marking where you’ll be drilling holes. Once you’re done “tracing,” remove the paper and tape.
  5. Use your drill to drill small holes where you marked with the Sharpie. Be careful on this step, and wear protective eyewear!
  6. Thread your needle, then begin embroidering. Use a piece of Scotch tape to secure the loose ends of the thread. Repeat until you’re done embroidering.

DIY Simple Pom Pom Beanie

DIy Simple Pom Pom Beanie 2

So in case you don’t follow me on Instagram, (follow me here), I’ve just recently made the move from Nebraska to Utah! (I’m going back to school to get my degree.) And also in case you haven’t heard on the news, but Utah has just been getting snow dump after snow dump! So I figured it’s time to update one of my plain beanies in preparation for the next snow dump!

DIY Simple Pom Pom Beanie

Supplies:

  • Plain beanie
  • Dual-colored pom pom
  • Needle + thread
  1. Thread your needle, being sure you have plenty of thread.
  2. Holding the pom pom in place, begin sewing the bottom of the pom pom onto the top of the beanie. Loop through the pom pom plenty of times so it doesn’t flop around.
  3. When you’re finished, tie a knot inside the beanie.

DIY Clay Avocado Jewelry Dish + A GIVEAWAY

DIY Clay Avocado Jewelry Dish 1

DIY Clay Avocado Jewelry Dish 2

Whenever I watch people make homemade guacamole, I love watching the part when they scoop out the avocado out of the halved skin. (…Which reminds me! I have leftover guacamole from Chipotle in the fridge that must be eaten. Score!) I look at that empty skin and think, “that look like it would make an excellent jewelry dish.” And then I had the idea to make this cutie!

Here’s to avocados! The ones that got ripe then went bad in one day (so it seems), the ones that are put on toast, and the ones get turned into that delicious guac (that costs extra, of course).

And for the first time ever, I’m doing a giveaway of this craft I made! Enter to win this exact avocado jewelry dish below!

DIY Clay Avocado Jewelry Dish

Supplies:

  • Air-dry clay
  • Knife
  • Round, plastic bowl
  • Acrylic paints
  1. Start off by rolling out some clay. You can use either a rolling pin, or a glass from the kitchen cupboard.
  2. Use the knife to cut out the avocado shape. Dab your finger in water, and run your finger on the cut sides to smooth out the edges. Set this aside.
  3. Get more clay, and roll it into a ball. Make it a size compatible with your avocado part that you just cut out. Think, “avocado pit!”
    Use the kitchen knife to score (or, make small cuts on) the bottom of the ball/pit, then stick it on the avocado shape-clay piece.
  4. Carefully transfer your piece to a plastic bowl to let it dry for 24 hours. (This is how the clay will get the round, dish shape!)
  5. After 24 hours of drying, carefully remove your clay piece from the bowl.
  6. Get out your paints, and paint the base bright green. Let it dry.
    Then paint the pit brown. Let it dry.
    Finally, use a darker green to paint the darker green ring. Let it dry.
  7. Drop your jewelry, your car keys, your loose change, etc. in the dish!

DIY Toy Donut Truck Thumbdrive 2

Sometimes thumb drives are just ugly, and sometimes the cute ones are expensive, or aren’t exactly your taste. So when I saw these cute, toy donut trucks on Oriental Trading, I freaked out! I knew that one of those lucky trucks’ destiny was to be turned into a thumb drive!

My favorite part of using my new thumb drive is backing up the truck into the USB port. Tee hee!!!!! It’s like, “donut delivery!” Hahahahah!

DIY Toy Donut Truck Thumb Drive

  • Plastic, toy donut truck OR other plastic, toy car/truck
  • Thumb drive
  • Drill
  • Sharpie pen
  • Sturdy scissors
  • Super glue
  1. Start by approximating where you’re going to insert the body of the thumb drive. Hold it on it’s tail end where you’ll drill a few holes, and, using the Sharpie, trace around the thumb drive’s circumference.
  2. Next, carefully drill two holes inside the circle/rectangle/oval/etc. you just drew.
  3. Use your sturdy scissors to carefully snip off any remaining plastic.
  4. If you’re able to, remove the bottom of the toy truck/car. Now insert the thumb drive into the hole you’ve created. *NOTE: It should fit snug.*
    NOTE: Make sure the thumb drive is facing the right direction, so that when you go to plug in your new thumb drive, you won’t have to flip the toy truck upside down!
  5. If you were able to take off the bottom of the truck, squirt a thin line of super glue on the inside of the truck/car where the thumb drive meets top of the hole you made.
    If you’re not able to take off the bottom of the truck, squirt a thin line of super glue on the outside of the truck where the thumb drive meets the top of the hole you made.
    Let the glue dry over night, or for however long the glue’s directions specify.
  6. If you removed the bottom of the truck, attach the bottom of the truck again, and…
  7. …Your new thumb drive is ready for use!
