Post image for Dyeing With Black Beans

I’ve always been so amazed by natural dyes. The fact that a beautiful flower or fruit has the ability to turn a white fabric into one of that same hue is a mesmerizing thing. Read more »

I love it! When I was younger, I'd always try to find the most unique wrapping paper possible for wrapping gifts for my girlfriends, and then I'd hand-make custom cards ... but for some reason, I never thought to actually making the gift wrapping myself as well. I'm going to take this idea over the top come next occasion : )

I wrap all my gifts with recycled things. http://www.pinterest.com/bethob/wrap-it-up/

Post image for 12 Last-Minute Gifts You Can Make

Every year, without fail, I find myself scrambling for gifts at the last minute.  It doesn’t matter how early I start my holiday shopping, it just always seems to come down to the wire.  My go-to for those last-minute gifts is always something handmade — you can never go wrong with something that was made with love and a special personal touch.  Throughout the past year we’ve done a number of DIY projects, and here I’ve rounded up some of our favorites that would make excellent holiday gifts.  Read more »

Post image for DIY All-Natural Laundry Detergent

Just as we take care in the food we put inside our bodies, I also feel that it’s very important to feel good about what we’re putting on our bodies. Read more »

Well, i have tried myself doing detergents this way. It is working pretty good but takes too much time, so i prefer buy some instead
Lovisa -Jan 13, 2014, 5:32AM
Just something to add from someone from the other side of the world, it's that Borax is illegal to rinse down the drain in Scandinavia (Sweden). So if you wanted to try this, like I did before i read about the ingredients on the internet, try to change borax to something else instead, or just buy normal laundry detergent in the shop. Sad but true. Care about your environtment!

Post image for Handmade Flower Holiday Cards

Is there anything more beautiful than that which occurs in nature? I truly think not. I’m always on the lookout for new ways to incorporate nature into my life, whether decorating my home, adorning my body, and everything in between. I recently came across a way to make prints from fresh flower petals (similar to these hammered leaf prints), and I love the idea of incorporating them into a homemade holiday card this season, as well as creating a card by attaching fresh flowers themselves!

Hammered flower prints is such a great idea! We used it at our event, and the guests were very happy! See the pictures here: http://fripefabrique.com/hammered-flower-stamping-diy-at-creative-picnic/

Post image for DIY Test Tube Potpourri Holder

There’s something about test tubes that I’ve always loved. Maybe it’s their clean, simple shape; maybe it’s their natural cork tops; maybe it’s just the hidden science-lover in me… I finally got my hands on some, and wanted to come up with a unique way to use them. Read more »

rgunter -Apr 22, 2014, 5:07PM
saw something similar to this awhile back and have been wanting to do it myself. I finally will and will be using it (like the original product i saw) as a clever way to store daily vitamins for the week. though i'll be adding alterations to this design to make it mountable on the wall
Katerina -Jan 06, 2014, 7:03AM
Have the same love for glass test tubes. The piece looks nice, I just wonder how strong is the smell? I guess the stronger one would be from additional essential oils. www.greenipurple.blogspot.com
