DIY: Make Your Own Awesome Planters

To be honest, I really admire you green-thumb types. I’d actually love to come home to a house full of green leafy things in colorful pots and know all their Latin names and what kinds of medicinal uses they have. However, that is not my reality. I am much better

DIY Book Page Art

DIY Paint By Numbers Projects

Among the many things from my childhood that I will inevitably someday foist upon my children (a list that currently includes cassette and video tapes, a Ramones t-shirt, Choose Your Own Adventure books, Polaroid cameras, and Sesame Street) is paint-by-numbers art, which help make anyone feel like an artist.

DIY Ombre

One of the things that’s been popping up on my radar lately is ombre. What started with pink and blue tipped hair on the heads of celebs has grown into a stream of lovely craft ideas. Ombre, which is a French term that means “shaded,” is usually a multi-colored stripe
