DIY Steampunk iPhone Gramophone Novelty Speaker Tutorial from Cici Bean here. This DIY cost around $10 to make and you need a drill for this. She also used a funnel for the horn to keep the price down. The ultimate verdict on the sound was not great but you could move the “horn” around to project the sound in different directions.
DIY Recycled Chain and Cord from LYSM Design here. She uses the same beyond easy technique to form the designs of the cord and chain. If you can use glue and have a good eye you can do this. There is a translator on site and she links to from photos of the chain necklace to the cording tutorial.
DIY Balloon Ice Sculpture and Lanterns Tutorial from willowday. We’re now getting a blast of cold air after Hurricane Sandy so I love these! For ice glasses and candles go here.
DIY Zip Tie Lampshade. This looks like it could be for sale in a gallery - go to site for more photos. Buy a cheap shade and then get the other supplies like zip ties at Home Depot (I bought a huge pack of ties at Costco). Because you are spray painting the ties, the colors and gradients are limitless. Tutorial from A Little Glass Box here.
