DIY Pin Banner

DIY Pin Banner

Create a no sew DIY pin banner to display all of your enamel pins, badges and brooches!

This clever design involves cutting two tabs at the top that are fed through slits to hold them in place. This creates a channel for a length of wooden dowel to go through. The thick felt holds its shape and doesn’t even need any glue!

How to make a loop on a headpin

How to make a loop on a headpin

Learning how to make loops in headpins enables you to attach beads onto earrings, necklaces and bracelets and is the main way of creating beaded jewellery other than threading. I will show you how to make both open and wrapped loops and explain why you might use one over the other.  This tutorial will take you step by step how to make both plain and wrapped loops and we will finish up with a troubleshooting Q&A at the end!

 

I though this would be a quick post to help everyone getting loops right, but it has turned into a masterpost of loop knowledge! I have tried to take this step by step for those who have never made a loop before as well as cover all the things that people on my workshops struggle with. Lets get started! Read more

Painted Magnetic Bookmark DIY

Painted Magnetic Bookmark DIY

Grab your paints and make some fun abstract art that you can turn into something stylish and practical with this magnetic bookmark DIY. This pretty painted watercolour design also make a great planner marker!

I will admit to being a page folder. I know many of you will be gasping in horror, but I always lose bookmarks and if I am being honest, there is something I like about the physical mark that the turning over a corner leaves. I usually buy second hand books from charity shops or have them passed on to me by friends and family, so often they books I read have already been read many times before. I like seeing the little traces left behind by previous readers, the coffee stains, bent spines and yes, folded corners. Read more

Painted Edge Notepad DIY

Painted Edge Notepad DIY

You can never have enough notepads. Even now we have smart phones, iPads and Google home at the ready, sometimes you just need good old fashioned notepad and pen.  This fun and simple notepad DIY project is so simple and can be made in whatever colours you fancy!

I’m using paint pens and markers here rather than normal paint from a tube for a couple of reasons. One; for the paint doesn’t bleed into the pages, creating a neater finish and two; it’s easier than mixing paint and water to the right ‘flicking’ consistency!

I’m also slightly obsessed with the pastel colour Bic Cristal Fun pens at the moment, and I *may* have chosen the green paint to match the green pen. Ahem. (Not an ad, I just love them!)
