@Chris : yes you can do this much cheaper by going to second hand shops etc but for someone who has never done it before they are better off by getting the right things in the beginning,gaining confidence in what they are doing and then look at how to do it much cheaper.I do it much cheaper now but i make candles and melts anyway but friends save jars and suitable containers for me,they also save their left over candles for me to recycle. Yes you can use crayola crayons to colour the candles but sometimes you can get a residue on the top,but if you are doing them for yourself this rearly doesn't matter.I have just poured a lot of citronella candles,just waiting for them to set then will be giving them to friends as just at the moment flies are a pest both inside and out.

Hate to throw a wrench in the works, but soy is horrible for us! Yes, you are not ingesting the candle however, when it burns you are breathing in whatever burns off in the air. Just an FYI. Also, you can use old candles to make new ones! Put them in a coffee can, put that in a pot of water over a low flame and as it melts, you can pick any debris out. Much cheaper than buying wax as you can always get candles at thrift stores. You can also use a heavy cotton thread or yarn as a wick. Tie a small washer to the end and drop it into your container. So many great ways to do DIY projects much more cheaply than buying new products!!!!

Post image for DIY: Cement Planter For Spring

Springtime is the perfect time of year to start potting some plants to make an area become full bloom. For this week’s DIY we wanted to create our very own plant holder using a cement mix. It’s easy, quick and fun to do when you have a couple of hours to spare. The decorating of the pot afterwards is pretty great, too – you can personalize it any way you like!

Post image for DIY Painted Feathers

I’ve always loved the idea of painting fake feathers, and with festival season underway it seemed like the perfect time to do it.  I originally thought of these purely as decorations but then it occurred to me that they’d be a great finishing touch for a festival outfit. Read more »

Birdy -Jul 16, 2014, 1:55PM
"Fake" because they are made to look like eagle feathers. They are real feathers, they just are not eagle feathers. "Imitation Eagle Quill" feathers are made from turkey quills and dyed/painted to look like eagle feathers. So, yes, your package said "Imitation" which applied to "eagle quill" not to the feathers themselves. They are real feathers, taken from real birds.
Jackrabbit -Jun 28, 2014, 9:42AM
These are real feathers you have used! Most come from chickens or turkeys. Fake feathers are paper and you can't do much with them. These are real!

Post image for DIY Glass Bottle Centerpiece

This week we were inspired by our Dark Rose lookbook that was all about mixing the perfect amount of feminine lace with darker touches of onyx. For today’s DIY, we used those elements to create a beautiful glass bottle centerpiece that incorporates the pretty but also gothic feel that the featured looks have. This is so simple to make and can be used anywhere! It would look great as the centerpiece for a candle lit dinner or even as decor on your desk.

Maisie, look for "flip cap" or "easy cap" bottles.
Maisie -Jun 24, 2013, 8:51AM
This might sound like a silly question but does anyone know if there is a specific name for those type of bottles? Thank you in advance! This idea is really simple but effective, I can't wait to try it out!
