DIY Earring Jackets

I love wearing simple earring posts.  They’re unobtrusive & can be worn for any occasion.  I have my favorites that I wear very often, but sometimes I think that they need a little ‘oomph’.  Sometimes they could use an earring jacket, also called earring enhancers.

This is an easy way to make earring jackets that will work with any earring post.

DIY Bling Tissue Box

It never fails, when I need a tissue, they’re in the other room.  And they’re always hidden under a tissue box cover because I can’t stand the patterns that are on those boxes.  The craft room is no exception.  Since I’ve been working on redoing the craft room, (that’s a whole story in itself that I’ll tell when it’s completed) I decided to make something pretty to hold the tissues.  This could be used in any room & done in any color of your choice.

Fabric Stiffened Angel – New Versions

Back in December of 2013, I posted a tutorial about how to make a fabric stiffened angel.  This is still my top pin on Pinterest.  To see the tutorial, go here.

Since then, I’ve done a couple more as gifts and I thought I’d show you how different they look just by changing up the fabrics.

Breast Cancer Awareness Angel

This year, I wanted to do something a little different for Breast Cancer Awareness month.  I chose an angel to represent hope & prayers that there will be a cure, very soon.

If you don’t want your angel to be for Breast Cancer Awareness, you could easily change the colors to your favorite color.  I know that the next angel that I make is going to be in blue & then one in lilac.

Shabby Solar Chandelier

The first time I’d heard of solar chandeliers was on Pinterest.  I fell in love with the idea of taking an old, out of date chandelier & turning it into something that can be used outside.  I went on a search for an old chandelier.  Then one day, while I was at Goodwill, I found one for only $6.45!  It’s been sitting & waiting for me to make it into something beautiful.  The wait is over, and I love it!

DIY Shower Curtain

I’m still working on changing up the bathroom from turquoise accents to silver & white.  I love the way the towels turned out.  (to see how I did them, go here)

The next project was a new shower curtain.  I made this for $4.00 instead of the $15.00 to $20.00 that the stores wanted.

(Please forgive some of the photos.  My camera is starting to go)
