I know we’ve already looked at some animal sculptures today, but these are just so dear! Kyoko Okubo crafts these little figures from washi, a traditional Japanese paper. I can’t believe they are made out of paper! You’ve gotta love the twig antlers too! See many more of Kyoko’s cute creations here.

How big are these pieces? I was wondering perhaps you can create a nature & wildlife decor theme for the home. There are brilliant photographic prints of wildlife in action you can display to create an interior design like that.

I saw this video on Flair to Remember and I thought it might be useful! A M.A.C. makeup artist shows how to put on fake eyelashes – something I definitely need help with!

studded knees!

There are lots of studding DIY ideas out there, but I’m am loving this! You could stud up some denim scraps and patch them onto a pair of old jeans that need some new life.

Aren’t these creations by Blaze Danielle amazing!? I just love them, they look so carefully and delicately done. I would love to have one of these pieces on a tee-shirt, even though I would have to be extra-careful with it! See more at Blaze Danielle’s blog and Etsy.

mini tin garden!

I love this little project from Design*Sponge! With some Altoid (or other) tins and a few other supplies you can make one of these cute mini gardens! I think I will make the zen garden – a little sand to rake on my desk might be just the ticket! See the instructions for both here.

I think this is amazing! it makes me want to go out and make one!

Though these dioramas are a bit less into realism than the ones by Thomas Doyle that we looked at last week, they are definitely just as cool! I love the creative use of random odds and ends in each little diorama. Aren’t they cute? See more at creator Ethan Hayes-Chute’s website.

how-to satin stole

I love this tutorial from Weekend Designer on how to make your own satin stole! It’s such a gorgeous piece for spring and summer – great for dressing up an outfit, to go out dancing or to go to something fancy like a graduation! Try it for yourself here, it’s a pretty simple pattern!

I’m not sure how many of you are into designing and making your own clothes, but I figured I’d bring your attention to this body form how-to video just in case. It’s really cheap to make one, around 10 or 15 bucks it would seem, and amusingly, one of the supplies you’ll need is a Christmas tree stand. Still, it looks like a pretty viable body form! Watch the video over here.

gold leaf stone decor

These stones with gold leaf decorations on them are so pretty! Poopscape Projects (unfortunate name I know) has a how-to for these little guys, and though I haven’t tried it yet, it does look pretty simple. See it here.

Grace J. -Apr 20, 2009, 9:49PM
This is really cute. I might like to try it.

this will blow your mind!

Althea Crome knits things so tiny, you will hardly believe it even after you watch the video below.

Adding to her claim to fame is that she hand-knit all the little clothes that appeared in the movie Coraline. Awesome!

Lucy -Apr 16, 2009, 11:04PM
That's so neat! She must have an excellent eye for details
Jaime Melfi -Apr 16, 2009, 9:11PM
WOW!! I've seen an interview with this woman before but never a video like this with the close ups!! Unbelievable!! my mind is truly blown!

doily art

I love these heart, brain and lung doily drawings by Lisa Solomon. I had never seen her work before, and though I was initially attracted to her site for the organs, her other doily drawings are really cool too!

Thomas Doyle, the creator of these incredible dioramas, says in his artist statement that he feels work done in such small scale allows for the intimacy one might feel peering into a museum display case or dollhouse. I completely agree – and I think that is one thing that is so appealing about these pieces! It is quite like looking into a dollhouse for me, except rather than wanting to jump in and join the scene, I am worried for the little people in these dioramas – they seem like they are in peril! Still, amazing work, and you can check out Thomas’ site to see more.
