Birthday Gift Ideas For Dad From Daughter -Apr 22, 2014, 10:19PM
Greetings from france. The ideas here are very unique, and I can tell a heap of creative effort was expended. It was a real time saver. My dad is challenging to buy for because his style is a little bit koocky, but there are one or two items here that that will look awesome in his man cave. So well done. This gift breakdown was incredibly helpful as my papa has a heap of stuff. By the way it would be fantastic if a April 2014 edition of this list could be drafted! I better get to buying now lol. props to this blog <3

always measure your rope 3 times the size you want your length of project when finished! I am starting a similar piece today I don't even measure unless it's something like a lets say a frog that holds a towel and soap then yea have to I am cutting 20 cords ( for width ) at least room length long to make a wall hanging for all my birds to climb on! I am using hemp rope so if they chew on it it won't hurt them! I love using natural ropes and hemp rather than nylon even if pattern calls for nylon. I hope to post pics later today on progress! I love this idea and mine strtred from seeing this one!

Post image for DIY Polka Dot Friendship Bracelet

Friendship bracelets have always given me a sentimental feeling — they can bring back thoughts that might be easily lost. Just by looking at them I feel a lot of warmth close to my heart. These bracelets are often given to me by close friends, by my sibling whenever she travels, or picked up by myself when I go to places that I don’t want to forget. In this post I’ll show you how to make a simple summer friendship bracelet for yourself or your friends. Read more »

I’ve been accumulating a lot of glass bottles lately…I always tend to pick them up at flea markets or if I come across one in a store. I love the way plain glass bottles look, but I decided I wanted to give my apartment a pop of color by coating the inside of some of the bottles with paint and creating a little display. This is such an easy project and the results are beautiful! Read more »

Can you put water and flowers in them after they are painted? Will it wash off? Will it kill the flowers?

Post image for Make Your Own Incense Holder

Burning incense is an awesome way to create a calming atmosphere inside your home. Incense produces scents that have aromatherapy qualities and it is extremely relaxing just to watch it burn as the thin stream of smoke spirals into the air and then disperses. Read more »

Post image for DIY Wood Photo Transfers

Today’s DIY is something I’ve been wanting to try for a long time – wood photo transfers! This is such a fun project and a great way to turn your favorite photos into artwork. Read more »

For the folks printing at Walgreens & similar places: The reason it doesn't work with many retail/commercial photo prints is because the printing process is so drastically different. It's not actually printing, to be specific. There is no ink involved. Rather, the images are developed onto the paper via projection and chemicals, much like images are captured on a camera and developed into film negatives. In addition there being no ink to transfer to the wood, the paper is actually still somewhat water resistant by the time you get it -- it is manufactured with a waterproof coating to protect it from the chemicals that develop the images onto it. I am not typically encouraged to say these words, but for this project, you are better off printing at home with your inkjet on some sturdy copy paper. =) Love, Your Friendly Neighborhood Walgreens Head Photo Specialist

Respectfully, this is an ugly example of a beautiful tradition. It doesn't take much effort to come up with a nice exterior. You can start with a bit more equal size petals, scallops, fringe-like cuts into the paper. It doesn't need to be perfect, simply a bit more thought into a cool project that brings smiles to those celebrating.
