DIY roundup // colorful craft projects

As we head into the weekend, I am feeling mighty colorful, for some reason…as evidenced by my clothing choices lately. Must be the season, right? So before I head out to tackle my own DIYs over the next couple of days (and a whole lot of emails), I have a few cool (color-filled) craft projects to share. Enjoy!

1. how to sew a color block pillowcase by Lisa Tilse for Tuts+

2. fruit inspired DIY party hats from Studio DIY

3. balsa wood phone case (completely from scratch) from Whimseybox

4. stamping with rubberbands (love this idea) by Tina Fussell for A Subtle Revelry

5. honeycomb DIY party garland from Oh Happy Day

Hope you have a great weekend.




I am tying up a few loose ends this morning before a couple of meetings and I figured you may want some project suggestions before heading out for the weekend. How did Friday get here so fast? So here are my favorite DIYs from the week…

1. fringe kimono DIY from Merrythought

2. initial letter planters DIY from Henry Happened

3. DIY bar bottle labels from Lovely Indeed

4. how to make a leather pouchette from For the Makers

5. DIY patterned stationery from Sugar & Cloth

6. floating clouds project from A Subtle Revelry

7. fresh flower honeycomb decor from Studio DIY

8. studded collar DIY from Sincerely, Kinsey

One, two, and four are my favorites, I think. But I want to try that cloud project (#6). What about you? Have any favorites from this roundup?

P.S. I also write for other sites around the web. Here are my posts elsewhere from the week…

Have a great weekend.

For those of us in the four-season states, the temperatures are really starting to drop! I finally broke out my mittens, scarves, hats and other cold-weather accoutrements this week, thus adding a whole new level of accessories to my wardrobe. But, I have to be honest: There are several pieces I acquired years ago that I know aren’t going to see the glint of snow. Just like most women, my tastes change with the seasons, but replacing winter wear always seems a bit more expensive. So instead of browsing online stores, I’ve been hitting the blogsophere for ideas, and these five DIYs are just the ticket for keeping me (and you!) warm, head to toe.
