Out of my February 2012 issue of Martha Stewart Living, knitting made its appearance as the crafting technique of choice. Since I find knitting very relaxing (and repetitive), I thought I would try my hand at this DIY blanket idea. The article came with full instructions and dimensions, too! Don't worry- click here for the online instructions and you can try it with me!
Recycled Paper Crafts
I recently got off a bit of an origami kick, but that kick introduced me to the versatility of paper! And it is amazing how abundantly paper is available. I am hoping to explore basket weaving, picture frame making, and wall art. Rather than using just magazines-I plan to use the surplus of phone books that we have gotten over the years. A super easy way to reuse something that you probably already have and make it into something beautiful!
Plant a root vegetable garden.
Why? Well, why not!? We eat a lot of root vegetables, and since they are pretty tough, I feel like there is an even greater chance that I won't kill them!
Add a few splashes of wallpaper.
|Inspiration comes from Design Sponge!|
My plan for this project isn't super developed yet- however- I am still super excited about it! I am thinking either wallpaper the backs of our kitchen cupboards (we have glass fronted cabinets), or one of our bookshelves. And of course, there is always more room for a little wall art gallery.
Snazz up our little backyard deck.
|Okay- think this, but on our wooden deck!|
