July’s tutorial: How to make a Gratitude Jar

GratitudeJar3

It’s that time of the month, my dearest craft lovers, for something really special and today I’m going to present you how you too can make and have, but most importantly feel the benefits of a Gratitude Jar.

The idea is far from being something new, but it doesn’t mean it has lost its profoundness. Using a Gratitude Jar will make you challenge yourself into thinking what are you grateful or thankful for at the end of the day.

It’s an easy and useful way of tracking your thoughts when you read the little notes at the end of the year and it’s a very personal #DIY that will surely make you feel better.

But first, let’s see how we can have one of these wonderful and colourful Gratitude Jars, OK?

Summer DIY: Seashells Photo Frame

Shells1

Hello again my dearest DIY lovers and welcome to another episode of our Summer Special treats!

I don’t know about you, but when I think of summer, I think of the sea (although I must confess I’m not a huge fan of staying too much into the sun) and all its glory, long walks on the beach, friends, having fun, freedom and so on.

So, I thought of bringing a bit of the sea into my home (since this year I won’t be visiting it) with an adorable photo frame made with seashells.

You too can have one of those (because it’s really simple and fun to make) so let’s get started, shall we?

DIY: Give a new life to your clothes hangers

Hanger4

I don’t know about you, but each time I see a wardrobe from those fancy¬†Home Design¬† magazines I get really annoyed of how nice and tidy it is. The clothes look so nice and their hangers as well. It’s like a fairytale of order and beauty.

Thanks to some very handy men I too have a wardrobe filled with tons of clothes (which I love), but my hangers aren’t the prettiest in the land. Most of them are old, bent, have weird shapes (mostly because I have the bad habit of putting more than one piece of clothes on them) and so on. They have no story!

So I decided to give them a new life! I have like 8 or 10 wire clothes hangers that look just horrendous, but which got a brand new look by using stuff that I have around home. Wanna see how?
