I’m really into Pinterest. Really, really into it. I have 21 boards and have had to stop myself from divvying up categories even more. The best part is I have actually made some of the things I’ve found through there, not just pinned them. Here are a few of the projects I’ve worked on, including recipes. I don’t have photos of alllll of my actually recreations, though.
This chalkboard DIY. I made mine out of an antique mirror I found at a yard sale. So far the frame hasn’t been painted, it’s the original wood, but I’m thinking some paint would freshen it up even more. I used it for the seating chart sign at our wedding.
This next one came from a blog I already read before I ever discovered Pinterest. I found the DIY again once I had a Pinterest account. Perfect timing too because I found a plain wooden frame at the same yard sale as the above mirror, and it’s exactly what I wanted it to be! We used it to display self-portraits made with the instagram app at out wedding and had it set on our dessert table. It’s now in our living room with family instagram photos.
Liquid soap from a bar of soap! I did this! I have a big bucket of soap now! Awesome! And even better, I discovered an awesome blog, too!
Tshirt to scarf– this might have been the easiest one, ever. It requires only a tshirt, pair of scissors and a little patience. It only took about a half hour and I dig the way it came out! I kind of want to make a bunch in different colors…And here’s mine!
My veil! I made this for our wedding. I’m pretty happy with the way it came out. Buying a premade veil can cost anywhere from $50 to…well, hundreds of dollars. Yes, hundreds. Crazy, right? Mine cost less than $10. I used a tshirt I got for free from a work event that no longer fit for the flower, a piece of Russian cage netting I got for $4 on Etsy, some feathers I also got on Etsy (was less that $5 for a bulk amount) and a couple of bobby pins. It took a bit of time to get right but it was worth the effort.
My ladies came over and we all put together these awesomely adorable hot cocoa favors. They were a big hit!
Chocolate chip cookies! We subbed maple syrup for vanilla extract and didn’t notice a difference in flavor. They were yummmmmy.
I have a million more to add here but I don’t want this to go on and on forever…..!
