Pom Pom Mat Tutorial

Another mini craft tutorial that I found in the depths of my harddrive 😀

Here is a mini pompom mad that I made quite some time ago to serve as a backdrop for photos. It’s only about 30cm across because I didn’t have much green yarn in my stash but it’s perfect for little macro photos.

It’s a pretty easy one, just make a bunch of pompoms…

_1220823I crocheted a few little daisies to brighten it up a bit too.

One day I really want to make a HEAP of these daisies and make a gigantic blanket of them!_1220824

Quick DIY Mint Glasses

_1280932

A quick mini DIY this morning with photos I found on the depths of my harddrive. But no I will most likely not be starting to do regular tutorials again, I just don’t have the energy for them right now.

You need:

  • Glasses
  • Paint
  • Decorations
  • Glue
  • Paintbrush
  • Nail file

_1280378

This one isn’t so hard… just use the nail file to scratch up the surface of the frames so the paint sticks and pain them one section at a time using thin coats.

If you don’t like the finish you can topcoat with clear nail polish or PVA glue._1280391

Then just stick on some little flowers!

_1280392 Done!

Sailor Moon Nail Art

I can’t believe how long my nails are in these photos *_* I think I cut them down super short right after this and I’m only just growing them again now!

 

Anyway, I promised this tutorial ages ago and now that I’m cleaning out my photos I figure I should make good on the promise!

Start by applying a base coat if you need one.

Then apply white to the entire nail. Use as many coats as you need to make it opaque.

001-Sailor-Moon-Nail-Art

It’s a good idea to use a long thin striping brush for this design because it will be easier to get straight lines.

005-Sailor-Moon-Nail-Art

Pick the colour of the sailor collar you want to do and use the striping brush to paint a line diagonally from one cuticle down.

Do on the other side as well:

Fill in the rest of the nail. You could leave the bottom white to avoid steps later but I wasn’t really thinking very well when I did this haha!

004-Sailor-Moon-Nail-Art

Add a white stripe or two depending on the uniform you’re doing.
006-Sailor-Moon-Nail-Art

Then if you didn’t leave the gap down the bottom, paint across it with white:

010-Sailor-Moon-Nail-Art

And a diamante to the middle!

011-Sailor-Moon-Nail-Art

Now using white, outline the bow and give it a little definition.

012-Sailor-Moon-Nail-Art

Once everything is totally dry, give it a clear coat!

013-Sailor-Moon-Nail-Art

And done!

Crochet Bear Coffee Cozy Tutorial

This bear looks like how I feel >_> Over the weekend our horrible neighbours finally moved out and they had a loud blow out party and trashed their place as a final “suck it” to their landlord. It was loud and late at night and I just want to sleep for about a week now. I don’t really have a lot of energy lately to start with!

DIY Washi Tape Flags

Today let’s do a mini craft! I saw these little flags at a junk store a while ago but figured I would save some money and diy. I made about 30 of them for our Billy Idol Day lunch and only used 3 >_>

So cute though right?
