this Post is more for your Inspiration. Sometimes you don`t know how you can give a birthday gift a special look. so maybe that will be an option for you.
I packed some pictures and one of my wood picture holder in paper, fixed with a sticker and put it in a black box with a birthday card.
Finally I tie up the box with a red bow.
Additional I made some gift for my other friends, that is how I packaged the present for those:
See you soon!
Last time I made the “wood picture holder” to decorate my room with some pictures.
In the search for a perfect place for my finished project, I came across to this blank wall in my apartment.
Since a long time I have been searching for some decoration to give this part of my room some color.
Just a poster was not special enough.
Another problem is that I love to receive postcards, but it is really sad that they end up in my desk drawer.
So one day I was standing in front of the wall and finally I got a good idea for my problem.
I would build a card holder for my room, on the same principle as the wood picture holder.
For the back I took a wooden panel, which is 37 cm wide, 92 cm long and 0,5 cm thick.
Further I needed strips of wood, in my case they are 37 cm wide, 3 cm thick and 1,5 cm high. (For each 5 pieces.)
Before I glue my wood strips on the panel, I cut slits in them for holding cards or pictures.
Every 16 cm I fixed the wood strips on the wooden panel.
I am so happy with this solution. An eye-catcher with practical function.
See you next time. Lots of love!
Here is my latest DIY Project. I decided to decorate my room with more pictures, so I have searched for a simple way to show them. A way, where I can also switch them very easily. So I made this wood picture holder.
- some wood (each piece of my wood is 8 cm Length x 7 cm Width x 1 cm Depth, but you can choose any size you want. It is easier when you take thicker pieces)
- a saw
- a pencil
- some picture
First I marked with a pencil and a ruler the middle of the wood piece. Next, I took the saw and cut a slit in each (be careful to not cut through the pieces, just to the middle). Now you need just some pictures. I am a big “sneaker freak”, so I cut out some pictures of sneakers from older magazines and gluing it on some cardboard.
I can imagine that this would be also a perfect birthday gift.
For my collegue is the Christmas Party from our Company one of the important day of the year.
So everyone looks really forward to this day and they are really excited what the responsible people have prepared for.
So the slogan for the Party was “Iron and Candy”, It takes some time to decided what I should wear on this day. For me was clear I want to wear a silver top. Now I was searching for some “candy” accessories, after some days looking on google and Pinterest, I decided to sew my own “Candy” Clutch.
Here is my “Iron and Candy” outfit:
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
Many lovely greetings!
I know that this may be too late, but you learn from making mistakes! On the way home my Iphone dropped so I decided that I really need a mobile case to save the rest of my phone. 🙂
I wanted a case, which is not separated from my phone, because I know it just takes two days and I will lose it. The second important thing is, that the case should not just protect the back, but also the front.
Here is how I made this:
You need: A mobile case that fits for your your phone, a piece of leather, double-face tape, elastic band
Step 1: Cut the piece of leather in the right size, make sure that you also cut out the corner for the phone camera.
Fix the double-face tape on the phone case.
At the end, very important, first attach the elastic band at the double-face tape and after that stick it onto the leather piece.
FINISH! Very easy, right? Enjoy your new phone case!
Hey Everbody! Have you ever had a shirt and you wanted to create something different with it? I love recycling old clothes and making something new with it. I was at the thrift store and found two of the same dresses with this amazing colorful pattern and an off white chiffon shirt. I kept one of the dresses in my size for myself and I used the fabric of the other dress to add to the shirt.
Here is what you need:
- Sewing Machine
- Colorful Fabric
Have fun upcycling your shirts!
