DIY No Sew Faux Fur Backpack Hack

It’s back to school season! And that includes me!!!! I’m taking more advertising classes at BYU! And get this – I’m applying to the advertising program this fall! I’ll keep you posted on my progress and the status of my application. Cross your fingers and give me your good luck that I’ll get into the program!

I love school supplies. Don’t you?! Colorful pencils, glittery pencil pouches, cute erasers, Lisa Frank notebooks and folders…. It’s all glorious! But there’s nothing I love more than getting a backpack/book bag that screams my sense of fashion! And this faux fur backpack upgrade is a suuuuuuuper easy way to add some of your own taste to a simple backpack or book bag.

Supplies:

  • Backpack or book bag
  • Rainbow/colorful faux fur fabric
  • Tissue paper
  • Pencil
  • Sharpie marker
  • Scissors
  • Fabric glue or hot glue & hot glue gun

 

  1. Smooth out a piece of tissue paper over the area of your back pack or book bag where you plan on gluing the faux fur. Use a pencil to outline on the tissue paper the area you’re covering.
  2. Cut the tissue paper stencil out.
  3. Smooth out the tissue paper stencil on the back of your faux fur fabric. Trace the stencil using a Sharpie.
  4. Cut it out.
  5. Use fabric glue or hot glue to glue on the faux fur piece onto your back pack or book bag. Let the glue dry for 24 hours.

This is the second part of a two-part ice cream-themed DIYs for National Ice Cream Day (Pssst…it’s the 3rd Sunday in July every year)! And I’m really excited about this DIY – it’s really really simple and super cute!

DIY Ice Cream Cone Napkin Rings

Supplies

  • Wooden napkin rings
  • Acrylic paint – various colors
  • Paint brushes – various sizes
  1. Start by painting the whole napkin ring a waffle-cone color — golden brown. Let it dry.
  2. Using a small brush, paint criss-crossing diagonal lines to create a waffle cone effect. Let it dry.
  3. Paint a thin, wavy line on the very top, and fill it in with either “chocolate” or “strawberry” colored paint. Let it dry.

That’s it! Another DIY with only 3 steps!

Happy National Ice Cream Day! (FYI it’s every year on the third Sunday in July — just in case you missed this year, now you know to celebrate next year!)

I’ve come up with 2 ice cream-themed DIYs that are super cute and suuuuper easy! (The easier the better, right?)

DIY Ice Cream Earrings

Supplies:

  • Wooden ice cream cone die-cuts – 2
  • Drill + small drill bit
  • Earring posts -2
  • Jump rings – 4
  • Pliers

 

  1. Start by drilling one small hole at the top of the ice cream cone die cut. Repeat this on the second one.
  2. Use pliers to loop one jump ring into the hole you just drilled, and clamp it shut. Apply the second jump ring onto the last one, but don’t clamp it shut just yet.
    Do this process to your second ice cream cone die cut.
  3. Loop the earring post into the second jump ring, then clamp it shut.
    Do this process to the second ice cream cone die cut.

That’s it! Three whole steps!!!!

Supplies:

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.
