My little niece is 2 years old and I thought it would be fun to make her a bleach tee. I saw this pin from Plum Adorable and decided to give it a try.
I kept my plan simpler and just used masking tape to make two straight lines. [Don’t forget to put a piece of cardboard or magazine in between the shirt]
I wanted to use what I had on hand, and I did not have a bleach pen, so I just dipped a paper towel into a bowl of bleach and dabbed it in between the lines. Be careful not to use too much or it will bleed through during washing.
I let the shirt sit and dry before throwing it in the washer for a cycle. I wanted to make sure it did not damage any of her other clothing.
And here was the end result.
I love the way it looks almost tie dye. This was a simple project that really stepped up this $5 tee.
After seeing this pin from Que Linda I knew it would be a perfect gift for my little sister. She recently moved out on her own and is looking for ways to personalize her new rental.
This project cost be just over $5 and was done in one day. Perfect project!
To get started, I bought a cheap piece of poppler from the home improvement store and stained it with concentrated coffee. Then I printed out the word Love on an 8×10.5 piece of paper and cut out the letters, taped them down and hammered nails along the edge. I then removed the paper and outlined the word with white string. Once the outline was complete I went back and zig zagged through each letter. And that was it!
I love the way this project turned out so much that I am determined to make one for myself.
I always hold on to old jelly, pasta sauce and condiment jars to use again. For this project I spray painted the lid gold for a festive touch and added a label printed on sicker paper. Then I filled the jar with 3 small candy canes, added vodka to the top and let it sit for 24 hours. This was such a fun treat to give and to receive.
Happy New Year! I can not believe it is 2013… just crazy. 2012 flew past me in the blink of an eye. Speaking of last year, I have a few Christmas crafts I still would like to share.
First up is this simple Peace On Earth ornament. L’s godmother loves peace signs so when I saw this one in the $1 bin at target I had to grab it.
I just cut out a simple banner and using my rubber alphabet stamps I wrote out ‘on earth’. Then I hot glued it to the peace sign and hung it on the tree [of course I had to make one for myself… they were only $1]
The gift was a hit and L loves to point to ours on the tree too. So what do you think? Do you need a little peace on earth in your home?
A couple of days ago I pinned this giant yard stick star from Little Bit Funky. A few hours later my good friend sends me a text saying she is at the hardware store buying the supplies. Don’t you love that about pinterest?! The best part is she made me one too!
My friend followed the step by step tutorial in the original post and painted the star black and then white. Once she dropped it off I beat mine up a bit. Adding grey and gold spray paint and rubbing it with a wire brush to distress it.
And turned out the lights and enjoyed my new holiday decor.
