“Inspired by” Anthropologie Inner Circle Necklace (Original on left for $118). Original Anthropologie necklace here. Tutorial from One Artsy Mama here. This is one of the those big bang for your bucks (and time) tutorial I keep talking about! And this one is so easy…
truebluemeandyou: Not scrabble magnets. Practical and easy and not your average DIY. Still love the color palette.
Key of Keyboards Magnets. But not just boring magnets, awesome magnets (not saying anything bad about scrabble tiles as magnets - but getting over plain scrabble tiles). Love the mixture of types and colors. I have several crappy keyboards in different colors that I could take apart to do this.
Large Painting Full of Text on Canvas. Found at Alisa Burke here. Why is this a great project? Does it meet my “is this worth it” criteria? Big Bang for your buck - YES. Can I make it for much less than in the stores - YES. Can I make it my own - YES. Is this unique enough to spend my time on - YES. And this is why I like her tutorial so much because who knew you could use shoe polish like this?
I used raw and unstretched canvas that I first primed with white house paint (I often use this in place of gesso). I let it dry and then went to town writing out the poem- and believe or not I used black shoe polish to write with- one of my favorite supplies when working and writing on canvas to get nice lettering.
DIY Heart Button Pillow tutorial found at allaboutyou here. Mother-of-pearl buttons with one red button. This could be done on felt, in other colors. I’ve always liked the idea of one thing being different in a field of sameness.
