Braided Fabric Vintage Bracelet




 A couple months ago you may have seen my post with my fabric flower and jeweled necklace.   I loved it so much I decided to take a look threw my vintage jewels and see what else I could make with them.  I came across this beautiful pin and knew it would make an awesome bracelet.  I cut off the brackets to the pin with a wire cutters, than added hooks to each end.  I ripped three strips of white fabric, braiding them together.  I'm not usually much of a jewelry maker so I don't know the correct names for the pieces.  On that note I used "clampy ends" for the ends of my braids.   I loved the way it turned out and can't wait to wear it!!

DIY Cell Phone Case



 Seeing that I don't have an iphone, it's very hard to find a cute cover.  I'm always so jealous when I see the variety for iphones users.  I decided to take it into my own hands and just make myself one!  Clearly I didn't make the case itself, I did have one, but it was really ugly.  It needed a major makeover.  I started by spray painting my entire case gold.  After it was dry, I put a chevron stencil on and spray painted it white.  After taking the stencil off, all it left showing was the gold chevron pattern.  It still looked a little plain, so I cut out a gold glitter heart and used mod podge to attach it!  It may still not be as cute as some of the iphone covers, but it's definitely a step up from what I had!!

Canvas Glass Case




 I was in need of a glass case, when I saw this blank canvas case at the craft store.  I figured I might as well make one myself.  I found this image on my silhouette software and thought it would look great on here.  I used a simple iron on transfer.  After ironed on, I added a few rhinestone jewels to dress it up.  Turned out so cute, at the cost of $2.99 for the canvas case, much cheaper than going out and buying one!  What a great deal!!

Vintage Easter Tee



 With my daughter's Easter party approaching I noticed that we didn't have an Easter shirt for her to wear.  With that said, I knew just wear to go!  The Graphics Fairy!!  I came across this adorable vintage image, perfect for a little girl!!  We had this plain pink shirt, which was going to work just perfect.  I downloaded the image and printed it onto a iron on transfer paper.  After cutting it out and ironing it on, she'll have a cute easter shirt unlike anybody else's!!

Play Doe Carrot Easter Favor

While searching for more easter ideas, I had come across a similar play doe carrot.  So I thought I'd give it a try and make one of my own. The play doe was pretty simple to make. After the play doe was done, I took small pieces and shaped them into a carrot.  I placed them in a small cellophane bag, tied it off, and added a Happy Easter tag.  It's a great alternative than always giving candy!  Of course if you don't feel up to making your own, you can always use store bought play doe!
Here's the recipe, give it a try!

1 cup flour
1 cup water
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1/3 cup salt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
orange food coloring
Mix together all the ingredients, except the food coloring, in a 2 quart saucepan.  Cook over low heat stirring.  Once it begins to thicken, add food coloring.  Continue stirring until the mixture is much thicker and begins to gather around the spoon.  Remove mixture onto wax paper or plate to cool!

Wood Chevron Crab Sign

 As you may have read before, I'm giving my son's room a makeover.  Since we've decided to move to South Carolina, I thought a nautical theme would be appropriate.  I found this plain wood sign at good will and knew it would make a awesome sign for his room.  As I was browsing my silhouette images, this crab caught my attention. After painting the whole sign white, I  added the grey chevron,  and used the crab as a stencil.  When I was done, I added some rope around the edging.  Can't wait to get to SC and see how this whole room comes together!

Burlap Easter Bunny Canvas


You may have seen my previous post with my burlap stuffed bunny,  I had some remaining fabric left over that I needed to use up.  I decided to cover a canvas with the left over fabric.  I found a image of a bunny which I traced and cut out of burlap.  After glueing my bunny to the covered fabric, I added a bow and topped it off with a ivory broach.  So simple and so elegant!  Can't wait to put it out!
