AFTER you blow dry your hair:
1. Separate your hair into sections.
2. Style Sexy Hair 450 Headset Head Defense – Spray onto hair right before curling.
3. Using a 1 inch iron by Hot Tools, grab a section of hair (about 1-2 inches thick) and position the curling iron an inch away from the roots, curl and leave the ends free (don’t curl about .5-1 inch of hair at the end). Continue this around the entire head, curling the hair in the same direction.
4. When done curling, finish with Style Sexy Hair Spray Clay to create texture and separation.
This might be my most favorite craft I have ever made! After I finished the video, I actually ended up adding more of the lace ribbon pieces, plus a couple of gold beads and feathers which you can see in the photos below. I really like the extra volume and texture they added. This dreamcatcher is going to fit in perfectly with my friend’s boho chic nursery decor.
If you are looking for a craft to fill your Sunday, then look no further. I never realized how easy it was to make a tassel. I wish I attempted this craft sooner, but it is probably good I didn’t otherwise everything in my house would be covered in them! The possibilities are endless; try adding a few to accent a pillow in your home or tying one to a bracelet for extra charm. Oh, and remember that tassel necklace I made a while ago? Use this tutorial in combination with that one for even more DIY happiness.
First off, I can’t believe it is already July! Where is this year going? I seem to be short on time these days: juggling a full time job, trying to keep the blog going and just blocking and tackling everything else life is throwing at me. All things consider I still find so much joy in crafting, even in the simplest of things. I don’t think this burlap flag craft could be any simpler. Burlap is one of my favorite materials to work with and it is so inexpensive!
I love making my own granola cause it is so easy and you can really tailor the recipe to what you like. I enjoy mine with almond milk or sprinkle it over some greek yogurt. Comment and let you know what goodness you like to put in your granola!
3 cups gluten free oats
1/2 cup shredded sweetened coconut
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 agave nectar or maple syrup (I purchase a blend from Trader Joes)
1 egg white
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Mix all the ingredients together except for the egg white.
Whisk egg white in separate bowl and then add to mixture.
Pour mixture on to cookie sheet, lined with parchment paper or silicone pad.
I think this is by far the easiest DIY that anyone could do. Really all you need is a little paint and a cork board! Watch the tutorial below for all the details.
Spray Paint – The particleboard on these Ikea nightstands soaked up so much paint. I needed 3 bottles for each nightstand. I used Rust-Oleum Painters’ Touch Ultra Cover spray paint. It is primer and paint in one!
Cork board – I got a pre-painted one from Michaels but if you can’t find one, check out the my other post on how to create your own.
My style isn’t super girly, but there is just something about flower crowns that I love. Maybe it is the carefree vibe they give off? I think if it was acceptable I would rock it more often than not. Whether you are in a wedding or heading to a music festival check the video for all the details on how to make your own.
By the way, I love the idea of doing a flower crown bar at a bridal or baby shower. It’s a great activity that your guests can really engage in and the crown serves as your party favor! My suggestion would be to make the actual crowns ahead of time with the coiled wire, so that all your guests have to do is fill it with flowers.
