So guys after my recent blog post Autumn DIY Fails, I decided to give DIYs another go! I’ve had my crafty head on recently and I’ve also got too many glass jars saved that I just had to do something with. I didn’t have anything in mind, I just used what I had in the house and this is what I came up with! I’m actually really happy with how these turned out, don’t be afraid to say in the comments if you think differently though, always a fan of different opinions!
This is the one I’m most happy with! I re covered a new notebook. It was just plain black before, I had some craft paper laying around and this is what happened! I do love stationary but I never realised how much of a difference looks makes when coming down to using it. I just want to write in it all the time! This also looks so pretty sat on my desk.
This is where my spare jars come into play! I just painted them brown, made them a little streaky and decorated them with twine/hessian. Then scraped a heart into the one on the right and finally, took a nail file and scraped the paint to make them look a little worn. They look so cosy at night time!
Last up is one I came across on Pinterest, a pom pom necklace. Now, I made this out of an old t shirt and yes, I need more practise, but I am pretty happy with it! I also made a ring to match. I used a little bit of copper wire and a glue gun and ta da, matching accessories. Watch this space for more pom pom related things, they’re so cute!
So what do you all think? Are they just pieces of junk really? Let me know guys, thank you for reading!
