DIY: Decorating with beads.

purdyflowerSo, the other day I really wanted to do something with beads. I wanted something fun to decorate my apartment with, so I tried my hand at this Piranha Plant. Maybe you’ll recognize it from the Mario games.

It turned out pretty nice, and I will probably try my hand at a few more of these later on as well. Maybe even combining it with my 3Doodler, hopefully it’ll be a great mix.



DIY: 3Doodler magic into a candle holder.

So, for my birthday a couple of weeks ago, my boyfriend gave me a 3Doodler. A 3Doodler is a 3D pen that enables you to paint outside the box, so to say. You use plastic sticks in a thing shaped like a pen, and it lets you paint in, well… 3D. It’s so impressive to be able to paint straight up in the air from your paper and it stays there. I love it.

I have been using it a little bit after I got it, but I figured that I should really try to do something. It is way fun to use, and only your creativity is the limit. The plastic comes in all different colors, transparency and bendability.

It is a bit tricky to get used to but not before long, I figured out what to do as my first “big” project. A candle holder. I doodled the sides and the bottom before gluing them all together. The gluing part was actually harder to get right than the doodling itself.

Not before long, the glue had dried and my candle holder is ready for use. One side holds a Triforce (from The Legend of Zelda) that gives of a really nice silhouette on the wall, and on the other side there’s a leaf that does the same.

Have you ever tried a 3Doodler yourself? Did you love it as much as I do?

DIY: Jewellery frame, because it was getting rather messy.

So, I’ve had this empty spot on the wall in my bedroom for a while now and figured I really needed to get off my ass and do something about it. I needed something to hang all my pieces and necklaces on so they wouldn’t just lie in one messy pile.

I needed something to hang, and it needed to be rather large. Like a picture frame, just not with a picture in it. So, why not take a frame, add something to it so I can hand things from it and then place it on the wall? I bought everything I needed, tweaked it together and then I could finally fill my wall space.

My Game Boy necklaces, crystals and bracelets hangs there beautifully.

What do you think? Have you done anything like this yourself?
