DIY Extravaganza

When I got back from New York, I had a few weeks before I had to be back at school. I filled my days with quality time with friends and family and LOTS AND LOTS of crafts! My mom is also really into crafting and DIYs, so it's something we enjoy doing together. She even has a pinterest now! Here are some of the projects we worked on (all from pinterest):

Supplies: fabric, flower pots, modpodge
This project didn't actually turn out as well as I expected. The first pot pictured here turned out best, but some of the others were lumpy and the fabric didn't lay quite right. Inspired by this.

wine glasses
Supplies: wine glasses from dollar store, chalk paint
I love how these turned out! This project was SUPER easy and now I have wine glasses that can be customized depending on my mood. The only drawback is they are not machine washable. Inspired by this.

Supplies: more glasses from the dollar store, vitrea glass paint.
Another easy project! All you do is paint the glass, wait a day, and then bake them to seal the color. And these ARE machine washable! Yay! Inspired by this.

Supplies: ribbon, beads
No DIY extravaganza is complete without a little handmade jewelry. The only hard part about these was getting the ribbon to go through the small bead holes; we used wire from another project to help push the ribbon through. I couldn't be happier with how these turned out! Inspired by this.

I also made some tissue paper pom poms and painted clothespins for another project, which I'll be showing you in tomorrow's post on my new apartment!
