DIY

I have many great projects pinned on a few Pinterest boards, and I thought I would share some links here. Eventually, I will post my own DIY projects/instructions.

 

First up is a handy tote bag from Riley Blake designs. The tutorial, by Amy Smart, is clear and well-written. The fabric is from Riley Blake. This is what you could end up with!

 

ScrappinGalz Cafe has this quick and easy craft posted, and although they title it as a holiday ornament, I think you could make these for all types of events, as well as just using them as everyday decor.

 

This adorable skirt also has clear instructions, and the end result is lovely. It's from This Big Oak Tree blog, and Amy is a fellow Etsy-er. I think this skirt pattern could be modified for a variety of fabrics.

 

 

Kimberly Chapman has a great tutorial on bead trees. The picture below is of the finished product, and it does not appear until the end of the directions. There are a number of tutorials on bead trees, but I think this one has the best step-by-step directions.

 

This next project is definitely in my near future (and is a good reason to go back through your early pins on Pinterest once in a while--I pinned this a long, long time ago). It is on the blog So Creative Things, and just looking at it makes me think of spring and flowers! Besides the picture frame and cement walkway pictured here, the page linked to above also has mosaics and other clever ways to create interesting outdoor paths.

 

 

Please visit the blogs mentioned above. Each one has so many great projects, besides those listed here. And I promise to join in DIY-ing soon!

 

If you would like to see some of my handmade work, please stop by my Etsy shop, MCBDdesigns. (I also sell vintage at MCBDvintage, and used books on Amazon as MCBDbooks.)
