What a pretty idea. I would like to make one for myself. I love feathers and wolves. I think the wolf in the clear bubble is adorable. Loved it! JAN

Post image for DIY: Applique Cuffs For Your Winter Coat

Product: Mason Jar Lanterns, Fjord Ice Ring

Come winter all I seem to wear almost every day is my winter coat, and I must admit it does get a little boring. Your outfit changes underneath of course but because of the biting chill your coat becomes your number one piece for commuting. Over these last couple of weeks I’ve been thinking about ways to mix it up a little, adding in certain details that can make a difference, like brooches, a colorful scarf, embroideries or…an applique cuff that is so easy and quick to achieve.

Post image for DIY Pumpkin Candles

UPDATE: This post originally ran on October 4th 2012 but with Thanksgiving coming up we wanted to share it again since these would make lovely decorations!

It’s that time of year…pumpkins are pretty much everywhere you look, and I don’t mind one bit – there is something about their plump orange appearance that is so loveable. Plus, in addition to making great decorations, they’re also pretty delicious.  I had some wax left over from my homemade lip balm so I decided to use it to make some candles – and then I thought, why not turn mini pumpkins into candles?

Post image for DIY Natural Dyes

Update: This post originally ran on September 21st 2011 but we wanted to bring it back as a reminder of how fun and environmentally friendly natural dyes are! Read more »

For the green, try liquid chlorophyll! It's VERY green and is super healthy to consume too. It will give a lighter shade of green or a more vibrant color, depending on how much water you use to dilute it … or not dilute it. Blueberries also create a really beautiful shade of purple. :) I've only tried this with play dough for my little ne, but I'm planning to try it on fabric soon. The only thing I'm not sure about is how to ensure that the dye doesn't fade. Any ideas?

For the extraction of green-coloured chlorophyll dye from spinach, you should try putting those spinach leaves in ethyl alcohol (ethanol). And, you will definitely see amazing results. :) :)

I painted the glass from a frame with Krylon chalkboard paint, rubbed chalk on it, used an eraser to get it off but now the chalk won't write on it. It's dollar store chalk does that make a difference?

Super cute idea and frames. My teenage daughters would like to do this. Thanks for posting. Heidi Exede

Post image for DIY Corn Husk Flower Child Doll

Corn husk dolls were made by Native Americans way back in the day, as a way for little girls to have a friend they could take with them everywhere. After making one today, I can’t believe I ever stopped playing with dolls – they are SO much fun. Read more »

Post image for DIY Day Of The Dead Planters

Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday that takes place the day after Halloween, November 1st, and one of the most recognizable symbols of the holiday is the sugar skull.  Traditionally made of sugar, these colorfully decorated skulls would be used to adorn alters made in remembrance of deceased friends and family or left as gifts to those still living in celebration of the holiday.  I think it’s a really cool tradition, and I’ve always just loved the look of the sugar skulls with their contradictory, almost cheerful look. They also make great decorations this time of year, and I was inspired by these to paint planters and pumpkins to look like sugar skulls! Read more » -Apr 25, 2014, 8:11PM

BMCC also offers courses at several satellite locations. After the procedure, the sheath in your groin may be sutured in place and removed later in the day, or an arterial closure device may be used to seal the artery. There is a proven all natural technique which will help you height increase by 2-3 inches in under 6 weeks.

Post image for Make Your Home Smell Like Fall: Simmering Stovetop Potpourri

To me, fall is about coziness. It’s about bundling up in warm scarves and lacing up your favorite boots. It’s the warmth of natural wood and burnt orange hues. It’s the tastes and scents of pumpkin, apple, cinnamon, and all the spices that go along with them. Read more »

When I was growing up my mom would always put our orange peels in a pot with water, cinnamon and cloves to simmer.

This is such a great nest!!! We live in the South, in 'the woods', and enjoy our covered porch 10 months of the year. I would put this between our 'feathered friends' feeders' and delight in their using it as a community park and chit-chat station. Six or seven varieties feed often and the 'nest' would provide exploration and interaction and provide a lovely example of adding beauty to nature in a way that benefits both man and animal. At night, family and friends will flock to it's seamless luminance.

I have been saving up since high school for the day I get my first apartment and now it is creeping and creeping closer, this upcoming summer is the one. So everywhere I go I look for decorations, and by decorations I mean the cheap ones.... garage sales, flea markets, handydowns are a few of my best friends. These wire nests? OHMYGOSH. They shall dangle over my future dining room table and will be the conversational piece I could never find. They will add the perfect raw, natural feel I am going for.
