7 DIYs to Try this Weekend // January 24, 2014

Good morning!

Tomorrow night Chelsea, Ashley, and I will be hosting the #GlimmerShimmerShake party at Alt Summit and I’m really looking forward to letting loose and embarrassing myself on the dance floor. We have been working super hard on shimmery DIYs and disco-fied items, but there is still plenty of work to be done. So, I’ll be taking tomorrow off to put together the finishing touches on our party (AKA blowing up hundreds of balloons).

That said, this week’s DIY roundup is coming a day early!

1. Get your knit on with this knitting 101 series by Rebekka Seale for Bleubird

2. Paint a set of hanging baskets from Loyto

3. Make a ginger detox body scrub from Henry Happened

4. Sew a beaded polka dot collar from Anmutig

5. Print these giant calendar pages from The House That Lars Built

6. Sew a DIY winter hat from The Merrythought

7. Create a flower framed mirror made of fresh peonies from your truly

Hope you have a great weekend!

P.S. If you’re not at Alt this week, you can still follow the fun, right here on my Instagram (or on Twitter).

Great ideas! I love the mirror!



The numbering is wrong for 5 and 6 🙂


I love the beads on the collar and the mirror with flowers!!


The ginger detox scrub is something I’ll certainly DIY this weekend. Thanks for the idea.

I love the beads on the collar. I’ve been thinking I need to change up some of the items in my wardrobe. This is a simple perfect way. Thanks.

I love your DIY roundups! I just started knitting, so I’ve been looking for good knitting tutorials. And the flower mirror is so unique! Definitely gonna try it out when I get an apartment.


Can’t WAIT to see what you guys come up with for #glimmershimmershake! (And I’m obsessed with those giant calendar printables from Brittany. So awesome!)
