DIY Chocolate Casting in Brown Sugar Tutorial from Rise and Shine here. In her follow up post here she found that casting in flour produced the smoothest results after a lot of experimenting. This is such a cheap and easy DIY for kids and adults and you can experiment with LEGOs, chess pieces, etc…
Truebluemeandyou: I’ve written about this before - making molds out of polymer clay. Super easy and cheap. Also, people ask me what DIY sites I visit on Tumblr and litttlecraziness and dizzymaiden are just two of many that I check on every day - because of their content and they always publish the original source.
DIY Polymer Clay Cabochon Earring and Necklace Tutorial. These are for sale all over, also found in the DIY Prada Rose knockoffs here and here. Tutorial from artsy fartsy mama here. *I also posted another cabochon tutorial using resin here, and supplies to make your own here, or you can buy these by the dozen really cheaply online.
DIY Knockoff Dolce and Gabbana Flower Sunglasses. Loving this D&G tutorial for so many reasons: great knockoff, links for the resin flower molds so you can make the flowers so cheaply yourself (like for the Prada Honestly…WTF rose earrings here), and options for materials. Tutorial by Chic Steals here. *I’d normally use polymer clay, but that’s what I’m comfortable working with and I have a dedicated toaster oven for it. But I am open to trying resin clay after reading Chic Steal’s post.
