Do you have a box of old trinkets that hardly see the light of day? Recycle your old Colaba Causeway baubles onto strands of fine satin ribbon to make for the cutest bookmark charms. Love that idea or been there, pinned that?
Floral Ice Cubes
Get crafty for girls night this week—go to your local florist and pick up small greens, bright buds, stalks of lavender, basically anything pretty, colourful and small. Wash the flowers and drop a bud each into an ice-cube tray waiting to set. Once the ice sets, you’ve got yourself a beautiful tray of floral ice cubes. And, this is why we pin.
Gold Party Animal Candles
If you still have your stack of little rubber and plastic animal toys, now is the perfect time to get them out. Spray paint the little creatures gold, stick on a candle groove, put in a birthday candle and you’ve got yourself a set of classy, glitzy, gold birthday candles.
Light Bulb Vases
This is an easy and beautiful way for you to showcase your blooms. Unscrew the top of a used bulb, pour in some water and artistically arrange some pretty stalk of flowers.
Mason-Jar Lid Coasters
You can start off by spray painting the lids of the colour of your choice (seen here: red), line the used jar lids with thin sheets of cork, find a stamp that speaks to you and voilà, you’ve got yourself a fun, personalised set of coasters.
Keep calm and pin on! We absolutely love the literary artistic vibe these nails give off. To get the look, start off with dry white nails and then soak your nails in alcohol for a few seconds. Next up, grab the headline you want to flaunt on your talons and place the print side down on your nails. Gently rub onto your nail but try not to shift the paper, peel away the newspaper and finish off with a top coat.
Orange Peel Candle
Craft of the day: Orange Peel Candle. All you need is an orange, a knife and some oil. Cut the orange in half carefully and remove the fruit keeping the stem intact (this will become your wick). Pour oil into the orange peel, light the top of the stem and enjoy the aroma of fresh citrus.
Tennis Racket Mirrors
To give your abode a fabulous retro makeover, we suggest you convert your old tennis racquets into tennis racquet mirrors! Just take your racquets to a glass shop and ask them to custom-cut a mirror that fits into the rim and hang onto your walls.
