How To Store Jewellery

Jewellery is something that I tend to reorganise every couple of months. At the moment I’ve found a storage solution that I really like as it doesn’t take up much space, it cost under $10 and it hold all kinds of jewellery not just small of big things.

My finished shelves:



It’s made of 2 pink storage trays and a glitter Christmas tree from Daiso.




I took apart the glitter Christmas tree using a very strong pair of pliers. It was quite difficult to remove the pieces cleanly without getting glitter everywhere.


In the end I gave up trying to be neat and just did a big clean up afterwards.



I tend bent the tree with the pliers to make the bottom totally flat and slid it onto the top of the tray.



Then I used the heart cut outs to hold all of my earrings 😀



Around the bottom of the tree I keep my rings and the lower levels have space for big items like necklaces and  bracelets.


Nice and easy! Hope you enjoyed!


How To Make A Cute Doorstop – Home Sweet Home

And we’re back after weekend with a mini Home Sweet Home post 😀 Other than the crochet items, most of the things I’ve got left to show are on the small side which makes them great for doing one night after work or while watching TV. Of course, last night I went nuts and completely reorganised my craft area again so I’m sure there will be more projects to come soon that are bigger.

This is a very quick easy way to make a doorstop with absolutely no skill required.

The end result:



DIY Kitchen Splashback for Renters

We’re back to Home Sweet Home again, well kind of. I promised I would go back through all of the things I hadn’t posted about so today I’ll show you how I did the biggest change to the kitchen: the splashback.

The after:



Again, we rent so I wasn’t allowed to do anything permanent but I really hated the colour of the glass splashback. This make over cost under $10 and all it needed was some pretty wrapping paper and clear book covering contact.



This was the kitchen before:


Before I decided to do this I did several test to make sure it would be waterproof and the heat of the stove top wouldn’t effect it either. Mine was fine because we never use the back burners but I would suggest you test VERY thoroughly as you wouldn’t want it to be a fire hazard. You can also find contact which was made specifically for the kitchen but none of the shops I visited had it. I have since decided I don’t like the pattern of this because there isn’t enough green in it and I found some shops online which sell patterned kitchen contact by the meter  so I’m going to buy some and I’ll let you know how that goes!

Anyway back to it!

I removed everything from the benches and cleaned the glass very well.


I chose this wrapping paper because it was full of the colours I was theming the house on, when it was a small area rolled up I really liked it but on the huge area of the wall it was a bit busy.



I cut the wrapping paper so it fit exactly the size of the space. I then cut another 1cm off around it so there was a gap for the edges of the contact to stick to. I attached the wrapping paper to the wall using strips of thin double sided tape all over it.



The contact was much thinner so I used several vertical stripes instead of horizontal ones. I carefully applied strip by strip making sure it stuck to the thin area of glass around the paper, overlapped each previous one slightly and had no air bubbles. This took quite a long time but the results were worth it.


And that was it! Done and dusted. It took quite a while but it was certainly better than the blue. I’m looking forward to seeing the green version once I’ve order it!




Needle Felting Lottie’s Pet Bed

Miss Lottie’s fanclub totally spoils her rotten. Kim, who is her #1 fan bought Lottie an adorable strawberry house!


She absolutely loved it so I decided to customise it to match the lovely card Kim painted too!

My Photo Wall and Notice Board – Home Sweet Home

One of the things I wanted to make in the Home Sweet Home project was a notice board. I made one when we lived in Brisbane but it was too big to bring with us so I have been making do since moving here.

We have a massive glass door which leads to our bedroom so I figured that was the perfect place to put one! This is the result:


How To Make A Craft Box From A Yoga Mat – Home Sweet Home

This is a really quick way to knock together some craft storage from an old yoga mat.


  • Old Yoga mat or foam
  • Needle and yarn or stapler
  • Scissors
I wanted to use the basket I keep my lace in for the tv area to hold cables. Good idea but what would I replace it with? I didn’t have any other things to use so I decided to make one.
