1. Head to the thrift store and pick up some old-lady lace curtains.
2. Cut out the patterns in the lace (mine were flowers).
3. Get a large 16″ balloon from a party store (no helium needed).
4. I set this up in the shower, just in case glue got all over the place (and it did).
5. Make a little glue bath, covering the cut-outs completely and building them on the balloon.
6. Don’t get greedy and try to build all at once, or you’ll end up with glue-y lace on the floor.
7. Build in sections, allowing to completely dry. Trust me.
8. Leave an opening at the top near the string so you can add in a light fixture later on.
9. String up with fishing line and insert light bulb cord kit.
Shh. Grandma doesn’t need to know why her curtains went missing.
1. First off…drink up! It’s for the sake of crafts, of course.
2. Using a small paring knife, carefully cut out the center of the cork.
(I recommend sobering up before attempting this project.)
3. Scoop out the insides and smooth out the edges by shaving with the knife.
4. Grab a hot glue gun and attach a small magnet.
5. Put your air plant inside and mist once a week.
Now you have a miniature green thumb.
1. Find a piece of drift wood or buy one online.
2. Let it soak in a filled bath tub with about 1 cup bleach, overnight.
(So, it’s going to be a “messy” bun tomorrow, huh?)
3. While it is still wet, screw in as many screw hooks as you’d like.
4. Let it completely dry out (may take a day or so).
5. Drill in 2 L brackets to the back for hanging on a wall.
Instant art + function.
1. Take off cheesy plastic key cap.
2. Get your favorite nail polish. (I used OPI – looks like rain dear)
3. Apply 4 coats to top of key. Allowing to dry in between coats.
4. Let it completely solidify overnight.
Best key on the chain.
