This past week I’ve been DIYing more than I have in the past few months and it feels so good to be back! I get a lot of my inspiration from other bloggers and here are the latest 7 projects that I totally obsessed with!
As for the weekend, I have a whole lot of nothing planned. I just finished watching The People vs OJ Simpson and it was so good! Now I need a new show to watch if you have any recommendations! I’ll also be dreaming up new DIYS for the coming week so stay tuned!
Remember in my last post when I said I had bought an embarrassing amount of rope? Well, it’s because of the macrame kick I’ve been on the past few months. After seeing all the amazing macrame artists on social media , I was so inspired to learn the craft. I thought I’d shared one of the first projects I ever learned to make that is both functional and beautiful.
*If you are still having trouble with the knots shown, I’ll include links to videos at the end of the tutorial.*
I’ve recently gotten into macrame and have bought more rope than I’d care to admit. Seriously, I have an entire spool of rope sitting on my floor as we speak. I’ve made a few wall hangings but wanted inspiration for different projects.
The best thing about rope is that it’s so versatile, and thankfully for me, relatively inexpensive. Whether you are making home decor or jewelry, it always adds a minimal and natural look to your project. I rounded-up some DIY projects to help me use up some of my remaining rope, and because they’re just so clever. (more…)
Making my own soap is something I’ve wanted to try for a long time now. I was always hesitant because working with lye sounded scary and labor intensive. Then I learned you can buy soap bases that melt down and you just add whatever oils, colors, and fragrances you want and just pour it into a mold. This was so simple to make and actually fun to do! Plus, you can customize your soap any way you want!
My plans for this weekend are the same as every weekend…a whole lot of nothing. I’m so excited to watch season 2 of ‘Love’ on Netflix which I’ll try to space out over the weekend, but will honestly end up watching it in one sitting. I’ve recently got back into working on the blog, so stay tuned for some new projects next week! In the meantime, here are 7 DIYS you can try this weekend.
