Post image for DIY Beach Glass Photo Transfer

My Aunt and Uncle have been collecting beach glass for years. When I was recently at their house for a visit, I was fascinated by how many pieces they have acquired over time. I picked up a few and started looking at them. I thought to myself, “There has to be something cool that you can do with all of this glass.” I remembered Julia’s wood photo transfer post, and that gave me the idea to try a photo transfer on a different type of medium-beach glass! I snagged a couple of white pieces from my Aunt and Uncle (with their permission) and tried out the photo transfer technique. Read more »

I tried it. It works! How to make it waterproof? I soaked it into water and after some minutes the image fell off from the glass. Can anyone suggest how can I make it waterproof? Thank you!

This is super cute, and it isn't even that hard. My favorite use of it that you showed is for yard decorations. I think I might make some and then hang the glass in my yard, as sort of a makeshift wind chimes.

What plants did you use for the light bulb?

So basic and boring. My brother's friend's wife makes way cooler ones with the wire wrapping and curling around the glass with beads and charms! That's what I want to make. Can't find any tutorials on how to do that anywhere. I'll just have to ask her.

Is this surface cleaner good on wood and other different types of surfaces?

I love this idea! Fair warning though, doesn't work as well on low-tops because of the heel support on the back, it is very hard to push a needle through. I broke a needle when I was halfway done! Other than that, turned out perfect!

I have never though of decorating a shoe like this. But you created a whole new dimension for this. I will defensible try it out for this.

did you stay in each of the paint sticks before you did this? What suggestions do you have for multi colored stains that work together to create this look? I love it!

Post image for DIY Patching Denim With Lace

I tend to live in cutoffs during the summer months, and I always find myself embellishing them or patching them in various ways to make them unique (I have proof: see my DIY Studded Cutoffs, DIY Updated Cutoffs, Floral Patch Cutoffs, and American Flag Cutoffs).  This year I was inspired by our July catalog and its boy-meets-girl styling.  I love the idea of incorporating girl elements into a boyish pair of shorts through patching with lace.  It’s a great way to repair your shorts while simultaneously making them look even cuter!

Get real. Hot glue? no. Stitching is best. Also, for you city dwellers, weave a few strands of light weight aircraft safety wire, or at least picture hangar wire or something similar, to keep the creeps from knifing through that flimsy scarf. I trust everybody. But then, I don't live in the real world, being from southern Missouri where everybody trusts.
Jason -Oct 30, 2013, 11:21AM
Neat idea, but hot glue that's just nutty. Clearly the writer didn't do proper research.

I always love incorporating natural wood into my home – especially in the kitchen. I was feeling really inspired by our Sacred Geometry lookbook, and thought it could be cool to interpret the idea using wooden kitchen tools like a cutting board and some spoons. Read more »

Tile coasters are always great for around the house. They protect surfaces from your sweating drink, and they can be great décor accents.

For this DIY, I took those two elements and combined them to make a set of reversible coasters. These are super simple to make, customizable to your liking and perfect for gifting! Read more »

I actually did this but with a slight twist. I added a piece of plexi glass to the front and some of the sand as well. It looked really nice with the embroidered card stock, shells, bit of driftwood and feathers. I really appreciate the idea, it was fantastic and easy to do, I just added the plexi glass because I have all these vials of sand as well, and this was a great way to use one of the larger ones.

This is super neat for anyone who likes nature. It's a great way to display treasures and memories. I actually have a small picture display in my house using vases instead of frames, so I'm always looking for more neat display ideas. If you're looking for any inspiration, check here:
