DIY String Bracelet

346fa83a23fafb430e0cfb1a01b808bc

Hello everybody!

I’m back again and today I’m showing you how you can make this very simple yet very cute bracelet.

It’s just a quick DIY, it’s really easy to make and it’s customizable however you want.

 

What you’ll need:

  • Beads
  • Coloured strings (I used embroidery thread)
  • Beads
  • Felt
  • Clasp
  • Glue
  • Scissors

Of course, you can use other things if you like: think of charms, pretty ropes, whatever you want! Just be creative😊

 

Step 1: Beading

e2a666ea156bafe54fb148e1e73d6755

Take a piece of thread and bead all your beads on it. I had really small beads so I used some fishing thread.

Make sure the piece is long enough to fit around your wrist!

 

Step 2: Braiding

0451eebb806de2a91cf7e93df8b7e9cb

Take three (or more) colors of your thread and split them into three groups. Make a knot at the top and braid all the way down until it fits around your wrists.

 

Step 3: Felt

35547e533f99cf6635653518278cf9ba

Take your felt and cut off a thin strip of the right size.

 

Step 4: Putting it all together

Take everything you made and sort it into a nice order. I decided to add some loose strings to it to make it a bit nicer.

Then take your clasp and put one of the ends into one side of the clasp. Add glue to make sure it stays put. Repeat the same on the other side.

And you’re done!

I love this DIY so much!All the loose parts are so easy to make yet they look really cute all together.  I really like how this turned out, I like the blue-ish theme.

This is how it looks when you’re wearing it:

Crafting Supplies Haul

Hello everybody!

b02bed0a83b35aa47e08648ca9d13698

I’m probably not the only one, but I’m pretty much addicted to buying new crafting supplies. I see so many cool things and I just have to buy them. Especially when I’m in a really cheap store and it all costs about nothing, I end up buying a lot of stuff.

So today I’m showing you some of the crafting supplies that I bought.

 

  1. Cute fabrics

76329804d5572bf8937eb4bc99c26917.jpg

These fabrics are so cute! There are 5 different patterns and I love them all. The fabric is quite thin but it sows easily and the best thing is that all of them together only cost €1,80!

ab43ef217a3522b176083a42042e2d02

I especially like the one with the little roses and the dotted one. Which do you like?

 

2. Markers

6f046b94ed200a4b864022e02f646be9

The next item is this package of markers that I bought. I love them so much! There are 24 different colours and they’re alcohol-based. They write really nice and they only cost 7 euros! I really like alcohol-based markers as they leave a really solid colour and you can’t see the individual strokes which makes them perfect for colouring big surfaces.

644f3ea816754f9e7796916230ceb8f1

I really like these markers, the only things I missed were a red and a black marker, but they’re still really cool.

I also love the fact that each marker has both a broad and fine tip, this makes drawing with them really easy.

 

3. Stamps

2278e6a7c23f431d5186abef6a50b451

The next thing I bought was this cool multi-layered stamp. Normally I don’t really like crafting packages but this one seemed really cool. I haven’t tried it yet but you’re supposed to layer the different colours to create cool feathers. It looks really cool, so I hope it works!

 

4. Scrapbook paper

0de0df1a0f948c968627f4c29cac9011

I love scrapbook paper so much, I already have loads of it but I always want to have more. And I’m in love with these patterns, they’re so pretty! These are my favourite patterns:

Cute DIY Box

fullsizerender-32.jpg

FullSizeRender-30

Hello everybody! This week I’m showing you guys how to make this adorable little DIY box. It’s so cute to store little things and it’s pretty easy to make.

 

What you’ll need:4a9e47cd3e518bdd4ff2240b772388c8

  • Thick cardboard
  • Thin cardboard
  • Two patterns of scrapbook paper
  • Masking tape
  • Glue
  • Stanley knife + cutting mat
  • Button + Ribbon

 

Step 1: Cutting out the base

Start with drawing the outlines of the base onto your thick cardboard. I chose to make my box 11 x 6,5 centimetres. I also decided to give it rounded edges for an extra cute look.

8a3dc2b8b8a992b22a01cffd3f70e8b1

 

Then, use a Stanley knife and a cutting board to cut out the base.

 

 

Step 2: Decorating the base

Trace the base onto the scrapbook paper and cut it out. Stick the paper to the base, this will be on the inside of the box.

 

Step 3: Making the sides of the box

Start with cutting out a strip of thin cardboard with the width of the height of your box. I chose to make my box 2,5 centimetres tall. Then cover the strip with scrapbook paper.

 

Lay the strip beside your base and use masking tape to stick them together at the back.

FullSizeRender-14

Hold the strip upright and fold it around the base, making sure to stick it down firmly with tape.

My strip wasn’t long enough to o all the way around so I cut another piece and stuck them to each other. This is how it should look:

FullSizeRender-17

 

Step 3: Making the lid

Turn the box upside down and trace it onto the thick cardboard. This will make sure the lid fits onto the box. Cut it out using your Stanley knife.

FullSizeRender-18

Lay the lid on top of the box and use masking tape to tape one edge to the outside of the box.

I also added a little piece of tape on the inside for extra strength.

FullSizeRender-23

Step 4: Covering it up

Start with tracing the lid onto some scrapbook paper and covering both the inside and outside. I decided to use different paper for the outside for a cool look.

FullSizeRender-24

Then I cut a long strip of the other scrapbook paper to cover up the outside of the box.

fullsizerender-25.jpg

I used paperclips to keep the strip in place while I stuck it down.

 

Step 5: Making the button clasp

fullsizerender-26.jpg

This step is optional, but I think it makes the box a lot cuter. For this step, you’ll need a button and a piece of ribbon. I decided to use an orange button to fit with my scrapbook paper.

Use a small square of thick cardboard to make the button higher so you can easily slip the ribbon around.

Start with sticking the cardboard to the lid and stick the button on top.

fullsizerender-27.jpg

Then put the ribbon around it and stick it to the bottom of the box with tape.

FullSizeRender-30

And you’re done! I think this little box looks soo cute! It would also work great as a gift box for small gifts.

fullsizerender-33.jpg

I use it to store these small wooden letters.

DIY Woven Basket

Hello everybody!

Today I’m showing you how to make this cute basket.


It’s so cute and it’s great to store small objects on your desk.

The only materials you need are:

  • Old magazines
  • Cellotape
  • Scissors

Step 1: Collecting the pages

The first step is to take some pages from your magazine. 


I decided to use bright coloured pages but you could also choose a pastel or black and white theme, whatever you want.

Step 2: Cutting the pages

Cut each page into fout equal strips.



Step 3: Folding the strips

Fold each strip in four so they become smaller, thicker strips. This is to make sure the basket becomes strong.


Make a few of these strips before you go on to the next step.

Step 4: Weaving the base

Start with laying two strips in a cross-shape snd secure them with some cellotape


Then add a vertical and a horizontal strip:



Keep adding more strips, securing them with cellotape when needed.


Keep doing this until you have a base the size you want. I decided to make my base 9 by 9 strips, but you can make it bigger or smaller if you want.

Make sure you only use cellotape on one side, this will be at the bottom so you won’t see it. This is how the side without cellotape will look:


Step 5: Weaving the sides

This is the hardest part. To start, create a long strip by sticking 2 (or 3 if you make a large basket) strips to each other, it should be long enough to go around the base.

Then, weave the long strips through one of the sides like this:


Then bend the strip and continue weaving through the second side.


Continue this all around the basket, make sure to secure it with some cellotape in all the corners!

Cut off the excess of the strip and stick the end to the beginning:


Then add another layer by weaving it through all the strips again, but alternatr to the last strip.


Add a third layer and it will look like this:


Step 5: Finishing off

To finish of cut all the stips untill they stick about 1-1,5 centimeters above the basket


Now, fold them all around the edge of the basket and stick each of them to the basket with a small piece of cellotape.


And that’s it! It’s ready to be used now!


The bright magazine pages just turn it into a colourfull desk decoration that is really convenient too and you only need a few newspapers!

I’m certainly planning on making a few more of these 😊

If you found this tutorial useful, please like, comment and/or share. And follow me for more DIYs!

Thank you for reading!

P.S. Sadly,  I won’t be able to post next week because I’m on vacation. But when I’m back I’ll be posting 2 times a week!

DIY Bracelet from a Keycord

Hello everybody!

Today is just a small craft, but hang on because this Thursday there will be a big announcement…

4d301f240f7c19d374c296a2511ce9dd

I don’t know about you but I always get keycords at like every event I go but I never use them. I have a bunch of keywords just lying around so today I decided to make a bracelet with them.

The only things you need are a keycord, cellotape, scissors and needle and thread.

9d4174765d2d347931e6f8db84c22169

Step 1: Cutting of one side at the clasp

Take your keycord at the side with the clasp and cut one one of the sides

 

Step 2: Cutting it to the right length

Cut the cord to a length about 1,5 times your wrist.

6af3264438109fbb2d7f0d5bf5dbe412

Step 3: Dividing the strands

Cut the cord into three strands with roughly the same size.

 

Step 4: Braiding

Braid the strands until it fits around your wrist. I used some cellotape to make sure it didn’t come loose.

693322dd162447c395dd43051550a425

Step 5: Sewing it shut.

Pull the strands through the other side of the clasp like this:

 

Make sure to cellotape them to each other to make the sewing easier

3f02fff9e0742aa6ded00d0f11ae5ac1.jpg

Then with a few stitches sew each strand together. This is how it’ll look:

8d2fdbf0eb31dfe434a5b47adf6bcbd8

Step 6: Cutting of the loose edges

Cut of the extra pieces of the strands. My keycord shredded a lot, so I had to cut of all those little strings too

d66cd786cfa6990b8914ee57a745ee7c
Look at all the shredding!

 

And that’s it! I think it turned out quite nice and the cool thing is that you can use the clasp that is already on the keycord

DIY Mini Pompon Notebook

Make a pompon notebook with materials you probably already have at home!

8c2c7a7cb82a660bc4e12092ae0f4c0c.jpg

 

Hello everybody😊

I might be a bit obsessed with pompons lately…😳 But just look at how cute they are! 😍

I love them so much that this week I decided to make this little pompon notebook. I think it is adorable and you can make it with normal wool.

What you’ll need to make it:

  • 6 sheets of A4 paper
  • Thin cardboard
  • Wool in different colours of your choice
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Needle and thread
  • Coloured/ scrapbook paper

 

Step 1: Cutting the paper

61f98d6c8426e8818ef21f4e89e4a58c

The first step is to take your 6 sheets of A4 paper and cut them all into 4 pieces.

 

Step 2: Making the groups

Then, fold all the smaller sheets double and divide them into 4 groups with 6 sheets each.

 

Step 3: Marking the spots for the holes

42bac2201ef1da9248f411a0a02c9214

Mark spots for the holes on your paper with some dots. They should be 1,5 cm from the edge of the paper and 1 cm apart.

 

Step 4: The binding

Bind the groups into a book. I have already explained how to do this in an earlier post, so for a detailed tutorial on how to bind them see my post How to do simple bookbinding.

This is how it’ll look when you’re finished:

 

Step 5: Cutting the cardboard

Cut two pieces of thin cardboard the size of your pages. These will become the front- and back cover of you book.

8c5dbd26ab607ded346a575da435a147

 

Step 6: Making the pompons

This step is actually quite easy. Take some wool (I for example used wool scraps I had left from the DIY Pompon stool I made a few weeks ago).

ae2fa3f192ef37bbdd161498fc3f194f

Then, you proceed to pull the wool strands apart so they become thin and fluffy.

Then, you take a few of those strands and roll them into tiny balls with your fingers. To make it easier you can use a little bit of water. Try to make all the pompons about the same size.

Depending on how big you make them you’ll have to make 50-80. That seems like a lot,but it didn’t take a lot of time.

d136febb22db6056496aaffa9071224c

 

Step 7: Sticking the pompons to the front cover

Working from the inside to the outside, stick your pompons to one of the cardboard pieces, making sure not to leave any gaps between them.

The other cardboard piece you can cover with some coloured or scrapbook paper. I chose to just cover it with some pink paper.

96b7d06766c7590ce10e7d9cb843be1c.jpg

 

Step 8: Sticking the covers to the book

Using glue, stick the cardboard pieces to the front and last page of your book.

(Tip: Make sure to protect the other pages from the glue with some old newspaper!)

Stick them like this to the book like this:

ce2f4a141f921e6b85f006c9c6adfd01-e1498384073587.jpg

And that’s it!

This is how the inside will look:

216edd35e0ec52ff5af7377d851f224c

I think it’s just a really cute way to make a small notebook. Of course, you could also make a bigger version by using a quarter or half of an A4 as pages, but you’ll have to make a lot of pompons.

The best thing about this technique is that you don’t have to buy any pompons (they can be quite expensive sometimes), but you can just use wool which you probably already have at home.

I hope you liked this tutorial. I you did, please like, comment and/or share. It really means a lot to me. ☺️ And follow me for a new DIY every Sunday!

See ya next week!

DIY Foam Stamps

Make your own personalised stamps with crafting foam!

 

7cda900678516409bb421c366770389c

16f7e2ffe65d571f687c284c8d045f5d.jpg
Hello everyone! 😄

This week I’m showing you how to make your own stamps with foam. I think they’re really cool and you can turn any image you like into a stamp this way. The crafting foam works really well because it adsorbs the ink well, which makes you able to stamp it.

1f888c1bcbaf459331e83fda87d20420

What you’ll need:

  • Template images
  • Crafting foam
  • Scissors
  • A stanley knife
  • Some strong cardboard
  • Glue

Step 1: Printing the images

Print out a few images that you want to turn into stamps. Search Google for anything you want with ‘silhouette’ after it and you’ll find all kind of templates. I chose a bunny, a hummingbird, a lily, a rose and my name.

bdad4deebf903ecae2db0c32826c4064

Step 2: Cutting the paper

Cut out all your images. With the solid shapes it’s easy, but with the rose I had to cut out all the little parts.

With the lily I decided to keep the three smallest parts attached, so it would be easier to cut.

Step 3: tracing the paper onto the foam

Trace the paper onto the foam. The colour of the foam you use doesn’t matter, you won’t see any difference while stamping.

662c8059b9384387a17d158833050947

Step 4: Cutting out the foam

This is the hard step. I was able to cut the bunny and the hummingbird out with scissors, but the rose, lily and my name had really small pieces  so I used a stanley knife for them. Luckily you can cut through foam really easily with a good stanley knife

74f89c653eeb93d7becf52b6628852af

908bc44762bc36ba3db133ae32747ec8

Step 5: Cutting the cardboard

I cut a few cardboard shapes out of strong cardboard. For the bunny, hummingbird and rose I decided to make circles because I think that looked really cool, but the shape of the cardboard really doesn’t matter as long as the foam fits on it.

c5dea89667ad0b0f0d63d1bc24ac44ab

Step 6: Sticking the foam to the cardboard.

Stick the foam to the cardboard with glue. An important thing to remember is when you’re using letters to spell something, you should stick them to the cardboard in reverse!

c714ff49ffb72055424892289fbc87e2

Step 7: Go stamping!

I had a lot of fun with this step😊

You can just use the stamps like normal stamps, and you can use all kinds of ink. You could even use paint if you want.

Here are a few examples of what I did:

ca6d43d451306530a2e2ae1f80546b1faf60c515913dacee3a20f55456a6007e8d5a400cf268efdb934a9125058cea9477bdb777306f2d49e4c62ee685f9b66f008376aa93422479eed00da34945edfe.jpg547483ca19e96b0eb6e201cb378d7e191f888c1bcbaf459331e83fda87d20420

I think it’s really cool that you can make your own designs. You can really make cool artworks by stamping. And if you make your name you can stamp it under all kinds of letters.

I hope you found this tutorial useful. If you did, please like, comment or share. It really means a lot to me😊

Thanks for reading & see ya next week!

DIY Pompon stool

db8cbc4555cb42416d93dc1c56b96243

Hey guys,

First things first: I’m so sorry I didn’t post anything last week…😔 there’s just a lot going on in my life at the moment, and I really couldn’t find the time to make a post.

But this week I could, so I’m showing how to make this very cute DIY pompon chair for just a few dollars. Of course, you don’t have to make  a stool, you can use this on any surface you want, for example a table, a mat, maybe even a shelf? There are endless possibility’s.

I decided to make this as I didn’t really like the look of the plain white stool in my room. I wanted to make something soft that also looked cool, so I decided to use pompons.

What you’ll need:6374e09504036eb155e15dfdd4c1891c

  • Wool in a few different colours
  • A piece of foam the size of your surface
  • Scissors
  • A fork
  • Needle and thread

Optionally:

  • Fabric to cover the foam

 

Part 1: Making the Pompons

For this step, I tried out a few different techniques, but I found that this one was the easiest. The only thing you need is a fork, which you probably have at home (I hope).

Step 1: Take your wool and tie it to the fork

a9aa2ce79755bf36d26bbe44ef121d14

Step 2: wrap the wool around the fork a lot of times.

36305d088ec368819045b3406b1ed433

Step 3: Make a vertical knot between the middel spikes of the fork

66663fcb20c30ba0504b86f95e1d761a

Step 4: take the wool of the fork and cut through all the loops like this

3d32809c11eb2471bca207cf2738387a

And there you have your pompon:

d433de69bdae8c184b0c7f861d084cfb

How often you should wrap the wool around the fork depends on the wool you have. For my pink wool of medium thickness I wrapped it around +/- 40 times. My white wool was thinner, so there I had to wrap about 60 times. My purple wool was thick, so 30 wraps was enough there.

Then, repeat this step lots of times. LOTS of times. To fill up my surface I had to make 50 pompons and it ook me 3 minutes per pompon, so that took a while…

fcb7562aaa30ffc20ad2d0ef2500dc60
All the pompons I made

 

Step 2: making the surface.

My stool had holes in it, so I marked the places of those holes on the foam and made a hole there with my scissors.

87d1ff7820114773c4d5362ee7f42ff9

Then, I took some wool and pulled it trough the wool. This is so that I could tie the foam to the stool at the end.

573d78e3f42eb6216127e1ec7bfed818.jpg
Pull the wool through like this

I decided to cover my foam with white fabric from an old T-shirt, so I traced my foam on the fabric, and cut out a few centimeters around it.

Then I laid the foam on top of it.

183c614e5dfb0b4b48968b5c85fe41cd.jpg

Sewing the fabric to the foam went surprisingly easy. With a sharp needle you can easily go through the foam.

b8f656bdd6bc24894d273ec80ba7c750

When I had gone all around this it how it looked:

 

Step 3: Sewing the pompoms to the foam.

This step took a lot of time. I had to sew every single pompom to the fabric. I didn’t want to use glue as I don’t have any fabric glue and with normal glue it would probably just have become a sticky mess… but if you have good fabric glue I would definitely recommend using that.

And that was it!

That was how I turned this…

57833a60dfa89215d12fcdc07e82123d

into this:

5ca25419b1fe623a1aaba6dc6cdfd425

And the best thing is that you can easily undo the knot at the bottom and remove it if you want to.

58b803f139672f435d07c177a51fdf63

I think it turned out really cool, pompons are just so cute and soft..😊

DIY Cute Mini Clay Cacti

718a8f6b5841cf6a319c0bb5abd2becd

Hey guys, I’m back with a new tutorial. I’ve been seeing these little cacti everywhere and I thought they were soo cute so I decided to make a few myself.

What you’ll need:

  • Clay, (I used modelling clay but you can also use polymer or air dry clay)
  • Paint
  • Glue

I made 3 different cacti, the classical saguaro cactus, one thats’s more like a barrel cactus and the last one isn’t technically a cactus, but a succulent.

Cactus number 1:

Step 1: Roll a ball from your clay

163c8e62bb16b1f66592f6d5d104016e

Step 2: Turn it into a cilinder and cut of the bottom part so the bottom is flat

a29b499095c92f362907c8773e2ba926

Step 3: Make a little arm and stick it to the cilinder

e9f9834057459e9d017f60b21409e5c9

Cactus number 2:

Step 1: Make a ball again but this time make one side narrow

22dde0dbfeb6ca6d341959f250b2aea3

Step 2: use a pencil to make vertical lines in the cactus

47c3cecd90ae4c9920ddbfb78362da93

Cactus number 3:

Step 1: For this one, you first have to make a lot of leaf-shaped things. 5 big leaves, 6 medium and 5 small leaves. (Yes I know the picture only shows 3 small ones, that was a mistake. Oops)

14659fddd8fe68d932203a8740899709

Step 2: Place the big leaves like this:

Step 3: Place the medium ones on top of the big ones but alternating, and place the small ones on top of that.

Now, for the pots:

I made three different pots. For the first one I made a cylinder with one side thinner than the other one like this:

 

I rolled out a thin strip of clay, flattened it and wrapped it around the pot.

For the second pot I did the same but without flattening the strip.

For the third pot I made a ball,  pushed it flat and made a notch in it with my fingers

This is what you’ll have so far:

For the painting I decided to make each cactus a different shade of green and each pot a different color, one orange, one brown and one reddish:

Now, all that is left to do is stick the plants to the pots with some glue and you’re done.

I think they’re really cute and you could make a whole lot of them with different shades of green and different sizes of pots. I think that would look very cool. If you like, you could also give the cacti kawaii faces. That would be really cute too.

The third cactus is my favourite, I think it looks really cute and quite realistic.

DIY Braided Notebook

I use this notebook to store all of my DIY ideas!

 

What you’ll need:

  • A piece of cardboard of the size of an A4 paper
  • Lined paper
  • Plain paper
  • 2 colours of coloured paper
  • 2 keychain rings

img_5456

The photo shows 3 keyrings because that is what I originally planned, but I later decided to stick with 2

To start, cut your cardboard in 2 equal pieces and paint one side of them in a nice colourfullsizerender-8

I chose for blue

fullsizerender-9

While that dries, you can start braiding. Cut your coloured paper into strokes of 1 cm in the lengt of your cardboard.

Now, stick two of them to your table with cellotape and keep adding more, sticking a stroke to the table every 4/5 strokes, until you’ve got a rectangle of the same size of your cardboard to create a cover.

Now carefully remove the cellotape and add glue to your cover and stick it to the unpainted side of one of your cardboard pieces.

Secure the edges by collating them to the cardboard

Add some coloured paper to your other piece of cardboard on the non-painted side. Now, punch holes with a hole puncher 2 inches from the sides of both cardboards and this is how your pieces should look:

Now for the paper:

Take your lined paper (about 20 sheets) and cut them along the lines shown in the photo:

fullsizerender-13

Now punch holes 1,7 inches from the sides

fullsizerender-14

if you want, you can also cut some plain paper in the same size

fullsizerender-18

I also made some tabs for myself, but this is not necessary.

fullsizerender-17

Now, line up both covers and your paper in the right order and shove the rings on the back cover.

fullsizerender-19

Shove all the other papers through the rings too, one ring at a time

fullsizerender-20

Finally, add the front cover and you’re done!
