Every year so many wreath are made to welcome your guest at the door steps. Wreath take so many forms, colors and designs. These wreath are made about 7 years ago, still looking good - if made today the styling might have been different and the wreath less symetrik.

The last couple of days it has been all about spring cleaning at the office and in my stock. So there is empty cardboard boxes all over the place, that I until now just wanted to take to recycling. But then I visited this blog and saw these great cardboard box projects at this super blog. So I will save boxes for the easter holiday and then we can create castle out of them.

I love Wollfiller and their ideas. My best woolen cardigan has prolonged its life several years because of their ideas.Today Design Sponge feature a series about DIY hearts one of them is how to make woolen hearts for valentine day. Super idea why not take your loved ones beloved old sweater and add a heart any color any shape - just for the love. Old or new sweater will still be full of love. Take a look here at Woolfilller or over at Design Sponge.
In my daughter's kindergarten, they have decorated all their windows with these amazing stars, so simple and yet they make an instant christmas feeling. This star is relative easy to make and even if you decide to make it out of print paper(as I did) it will still have a "glow" to it. I also made one in news paper- see below.
Years ago I made this article about upscaling my kids small plastic animals and other funny thing. Collect a big pile of mini toys that your kids will not miss or will give you an ok to use. Take the selected frame and place all the figures the way you like — take at picture to remember the "pattern". Spray paint all the figures.
When dried — glue them to the canvas with a glue gun, and you will end up with a modern art peace to give someone, or put on the wall.
White mummies are
a fun project for Halloween or a ”scary” party.
The mummies are
reasonably simple to make.
You will need: *Juice bricks *Adhesive / glue
stick *White masking
tape (gauze, cloth patch on roll, white fabric cut into strips or a discarded
white T-shirt cut *into strips - there are many options) *Plastic eyes (available
at hobby shops) alternative paint the eyes directly on the mummy.
How to: Start by removing
the disposable straws. Wrap the mummy from
the bottom of the juice with tape -the more random, the more real it seems.
Remember not to tape the hole for the straw. When the juice
carton is completely covered, you can glue the eyes on and then mummy ready.
The straw can
alternatively be taped to the side again, or placed next to it.
Mummies that will
make Dracula's thirsty for juice
inspired for your next party. I have folded a lot of boats in different kinds
of paper and sizes. Use them as place cards or goodie boats. Use a map as tablecloth or cut the map in pieces of A3 (297mmx420mm) and use it for place mats. Set sails for new adventures
For inspirational use - Nina made this great family
calendar with precision and creative MT Tape, stamps and lovely handwriting.
She love the concept of a family calendar but could not find one that suited
her, in design and size, so why not make your own. Maybe it is an idea for you
:) happy weekend
The "Ready made curtains" from Kvardrat designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, are a fantastic new product for the modern living. They are simple and easy to assemble and you end up with a curtain that is simple and modern - I think of Japan - maybe it is the materials and colors. Take a closer look.
All the good intension of blogging with sooooooo many ideas did not come true this year. But here is a small DIY gift tags for the holydays. You need: tape, in different colors and patterns carton circel cutter or a pair of scissors.
how to: Put the tape on the carton in different direction and use different corlors - there is no "right way" (look at the pictures) Then take your cutter and cut your card out. cut a small hole for the ribbon.
(Inspired by Chriz that was "playing" with MT tape and big circle cutters)
Make your own christmas bells out of egg trays. Cut out the small "mountains" of the tray, paint them, and sprinkle with glitter. When they are dry put a ribbon through and it is ready to mount on the three. (If you have a small bell, then put it on the ribbon to finish the bell.)
