This week I'm exploring the many DIY projects shown on Pinterest. I consider myself to be a little "challenged" when it comes to craft projects, but I do enjoy them when I have the time. Pinterest offers me a lot of inspiration when I'm trying to channel my inner Martha Stewart :)
(I still have not figured out how to embed images from Pinterest to my blog! I again apologize if an image isn't attributed correctly!)
Can you tell that the tray was originally a cookie sheet?! Clever and an oh-so-useful trick for parties! Not only do I love the chevron pattern, but I'm really digging the orange too :)
Use a map from your travels as the mat in a framed picture from your travels. Ingenious!
Did you know that you can dye any clear glass jars any color? I didn't so I was really excited when I found this project! I love the look of colored mason jars (especially blue ones!), but they can be hard to find in stores. Now I can just buy clear ones, dye them, and use them as vases, drinking glasses, etc. Problem solved.
I have tons of extra beautiful scrapbook paper, and these coasters would put it to good use! I could have coasters for different seasons, coasters that coordinate with party themes, monogrammed coasters, etc. All I need are some ceramic tiles and a few other supplies, and I'm good to go.
Such a colorful, fun mobile for a nursery! And not too difficult to do which is a huge plus :)
Want etched, monogrammed glasses? Now you can make your own! Easy peasy :)
This is probably the most ambitious project that I pinned, but I think it's within the realm of possibility for me. I love the look of painted dressers and the stenciling and fun drawer pulls add a really unique touch!
