With summer on it’s way we wanted to give you something bright and colourful to make. Yellow is everywhere at the moment and using this bold colour on accessories is a good way of adding a pop of colour to any outfit. This cactus charm friendship bracelet is quick and simple to make. You’ll find all the DIY instructions below, so read on!
It was my son’s 10th birthday last month and I wanted to make something for the party bags. There was no specific theme for his party this year, but as they were all going to camp out in the back garden, a camping related DIY seemed the way to go. I started searching for ideas and quickly came across Paracord or ‘Survival’ bracelets. These chunky bracelets are great for boys and girls and quick to make, so I decided to give making them a try.
There is something whimsical and fun about pom poms. I loved making them when I was little and after seeing lots of lovely ideas for pom poms wreaths I decided to give one a go! I had an old Mollie Makes magazine floral wreath kit that I hadn’t used (except for the flower I used on my Easter Basket), so I decided to make the remaining felt flowers and add some pom poms. Today was a lovely sunny day and it was so nice sitting outside surrounded by wool and felt and being creative – good relaxation.
Is there such a thing as too many pom poms??! I hope not…
I found some fun colourful ‘slices’ of polymer clay fruit and flowers whilst going through my craft supplies. I had to do something with them as they were so bright and sunny. This is what I made – a neon yellow and green bead and tassel key ring. Great for bringing summer sunshine to rainy days and adding a pop of on trend neon colour to your bag or keys.
Sew yourself a cuddly unicorn friend
Unicorns are everywhere at the moment – for good reason. They are magical, colourful, cute and poop rainbows! So I decided to create a cuddly Unicorn for my daughter. Her full name is Princess Unicorn Yasmin the Third. Follow the instructions below to make your own pet Unicorn to play with and enjoy. Just don’t complain when you have to scoop rainbow poop from the floor (they don’t come house trained)!
