DIYs to Try

DIYsToTryHappy Friday, friends! Don’t know about you but spring fever is in full effect at my house. I live with three dogs and we find ourselves playing outside more and more these days. This is the first time I’ve ever lived with dogs and I honestly don’t remember what life was like without them. I’m hoping to make some DIYs for the blog in between playtime this weekend. Plus, I have an exciting announcement coming up next week so stay tuned!

DIY Indigo Marbled Mini Planters

I’m not gonna lie to you guys. This DIY almost didn’t happen. I had seen so many tutorials on marbling that I wanted to try it for myself. I figured, how hard could it be? Apparently, it takes a little practice. The images you see are from my SECOND attempt. The first time I marbled these planters they were splotchy and clumpy. It was frustrating to say the least, but I hope my failure will be your success.

10 indigo dye projects

I remember doing tie-dye at a summer camp I went to as a kid and it was my favorite thing! I loved playing with the placement of the rubber bands to try and create cool patterns. Of course, it would never turn out how you imagined but you would convince yourself that it still looked cool.

Shibori is a Japanese technique of dying by binding, stitching, twisting, folding and compressing fabric to create intricate designs. AKA, tie-dye for adults. The main dye used in shibori is indigo. I’ve been obsessed with this deep shade of blue for a while now and am trying to figure out ways to incorporate the color into my home. These DIY indigo projects are a good start for inspiration!
