A few of the wow moments, or things I discover each week that tickle my fancy. I hope that they may inspire or tickle yours too!
Homemade Gummy Bears. Healthy. No preservatives or artificial colours. All natural ingredients.
From a blog called Undressed Skeleton. I miss gummy bears.
A DIY headband. This looks fairly easy to do. It's not just any headband, but a twisted Turban headband made from an old t-shirt. I found this on Honeybee Vintage. Great page.
I just love these tea towels with the prairie points. They are pretty and colourful and would be a great way to use up bits and bobs of fabric you have laying around. There is a full tutorial on Lilluna. They look fairly straightforward and easy to make.
Paper Scrap Garlands. I love finding ways to use paper scraps. I throw nothing away. I have a whole box full of paper scraps and I always end up using every inch of them in some way. These papers are expensive and it's a sin to throw any of them out, even the little bits. You will find this and other gift wrapping ideas on Crate Paper.
Washi Tape Flags. You could make these with skewers if you want tall ones, or toothpick if you want small ones. They would be a great way to decorate Birthday Cakes or Cupcakes, for themed parties, etc. Found on Pink Suede Shoe.
I love this floral arrangement. I would never have thought of using my button collection in such a way. This is a great way to get them out of the button box and on display. Not sure I would do a huge one. (I'd be too afraid of ruining my buttons!) But I think I could manage a small one!
There are some really cute gift ideas here, on Vintage Paper Parade. I love that blog! There's a lot of cute things on that page. I don't know how people keep coming up with these novel ideas. I am always amazed at what I find!
A new use for the tabs from the soda pop tins. Picture hangers! Found on Apartment Therapy. I would NEVER have thought of that! Genius!
Dining Chair Slip Covers. I love these. There is a complete tutorial on Miss Mustard Seed.
Great page too by the way! Our chairs are old chairs we picked up at a charity shop. Nothing wrong with them. They're solid wood, with rush seats. I think they would be lovely with the seats slip covered however.
Have you checked out The Dating Divas??? You really should if you have a man in your life that you appreciate and want to show him how much in a unique way, or you just want to make your date nights a little bit more exciting. There is no end to the fabulous ideas on that page! I wish I had discovered date nights when I was earlier. You should NEVER stop dating the one you love!
And that is it for this week. I hope you found something there to tickle your fancy too!
A thought to carry with you through today . . .
