I have been so honored by the overwhelming support of my fellow bloggers! Since they have been so supportive of my DIY round ups, it will now become my regular Monday feature. I hope you will continue to stop by on Mondays.
This week is centered more towards parties! With a Thumbprint Guestbook Tree, Wedding Day Survival Kit, Repurposed Jars, & Toy Story Piñata you could plan a nice wedding or other party!
I have been on a major DIY kick lately! You could probably tell by my Pinterest boards, because I have a lot of future DIY projects planned. So here are a few of my inspirations for this month from some very talented bloggers. Thanks so much to Nicki, Amy, Zen, and Shannon for allowing me to share their projects.
Please visit each blog for full instructions, and let them know how much you appreciate all their talent, and hard work that goes in to making amazing DIY projects. They would love some extra pins and comments!
DIY Wedding Day Survival Kit
Nicki from Lewis Lane Designs received her wedding day survival kit from her from her aunt for her wedding. Nicki fell in love with this gift so much that she started making this to give away at her friends bridal showers. Weddings are such a hectic time that I’m sure every bride would love to have one of these on hands. Nicki even included a list to suggest some popular items to add to your wedding survival kit.
A little about Nicki: I’m Nicki, a fire-wifey, web designer, and blogger living in the suburbs of Dallas with my husband Jeremy and our spoiled tabby cat Arya. Nicki likes to blog about broad range of interests including recipes, blogging tips, travel, sport, and a lot more! I hope you will take a little time to explore this Dallas gals blog![bctt tweet=”Need a gift for upcoming #Bridal shower? Make a #wedding survival kit by @LewisLaneDesign! #DIY”]
DIY Thumbprint Guestbook Tree
Amy from Amy’s Apron wanted a unique wedding (a.k.a.not-cookie cutter) that represented who they were and who they are as a couple. Amy decided not to do a traditional guestbook, mostly because I knew it would end up on a bookshelf or in a drawer, or a closet, rarely to be looked at. She wanted something she could see and enjoy for a long time. Amy talks about where to get your tree print or order one from Etsy. So head on over for full instructions and tips on what type of ink to use.
A little about Amy: She works full-time as a Speech Therapist with multiply disabled children. I really love my job! I also commute more than an hour each way to work…which doesn’t leave me much time to cook! So her blog features recipes are simple, easy to make, and with lots of leftovers that re-heat well.[bctt tweet=”Have a fun guest book at your wedding with this thumbprint tree with instructions by @amysapron.”]
DIY Repurposing Glass Jars
Zen from Hapiness Wherever grew up with a single parent. She hates to throw things away, but lives to turn them into beautiful new creations. She uses my favorite craft glue E6000 to attach ribbon and flowers. She even has a tip if you are having trouble getting the ribbon to stick, but you will have to visit her blog to find that out.
A little about Zen: Born in Singapore, went to University in Scotland, then worked in a factory in Thailand (She was NOT ready for the change in living conditions), wrong side of 30, now living in London. She’d like to wander anywhere and everywhere (hence her blog name #hapinesswherever). She also hopes her blogging journey will take me there. She loves DIY that is quick & easy – 15 minutes or less, and with minimum tools.[bctt tweet=”#Repurpose glass jars into beautiful creations with @hapinesswhereve! #DIY #glass”]
DIY Toy Story Space Alien
Shannon from Crafty Momma in Me made a Toy Alien Piñata, that away fit into her son’s Toy Story theme party. After looking for a fun piñata (and seeing price) she got started on making her own. Here you will find tips, needed supplies, and full instruction. Shannon even breaks the instructions up in to 4 easy parts. I always thought piñata were a lot harder to make, but Shannon’s instructions make it seem simple.
A little about Shannon: Shannon currently a stay at home mom to two children. They keep her plenty busy, but she till manages to find time to blog. She likes to blog about kids activities and projects.[bctt tweet=”#DIY a Piñata for your next party! It’s easier than you think. “]
Never Miss Another DIY Project!
So I hope to get a few of these amazing projects done soon. I think we all need a little creative time to stay sane. Maybe I can disappear in to the craft room soon (aka hide from kids)!
