Rope and Tassel Bangles DIY

Over the years I’ve come up with a few different ways to create bangles that can fit anyone.  My heart went out to all of the beautiful ladies who couldn’t find a bangle to fit properly.  A couple of years ago I came up with using large zip ties and this idea has been a huge hit.  Well, last week I was at the hardware store browsing around for inspiration and I ended up in the rope section.  After a few minutes another idea smacked me in the shin (or was it that crazy man trying to get past me?)   Voila!  The rope bangle that can be made to fit anyone and everyone!
Enjoy!  xo, Mark

Try using patterned fabrics, too!

 Stack them all the way up your arm!

Danielle rocking her new tassel bangles!

Polypropylene rope
Colorful embroidery floss
Metallic gold embroidery floss
Glue gun
1″ bias cut fabric strips
Large needle

 Cut the rope to fit around your hand
Melt the ends together over a candle
*You want to do this outside
Hot glue a strip of fabric to the bangle and begin wrapping
Tie or glue embroider floss to the bangle and wrap
*Criss-cross and create a random pattern with the floss
Secure the end of the floss with more hot glue or a knot

 Tie 10″ of floss in the center of a full skein of embroidery floss
Fold the skein in half and create the neck with metallic floss
by wrapping in both direction and then tying a knot
Trim the ends of the tassel
Tie the tassel to the bangle
Using a large needle, thread the loose ends through the center of the tassel and trim

Shadow Box Shrines

One day, in the not too distant future, I’m going to get a house on the beach and sell shadow boxes to passers by….I can’t imagine anything I like making more than funky little boxes filled with treasures and tons of glitter!  The best part about making shadow boxes is that they don’t have to cost anything.  A little recycled cardboard and an old post-card are a terrific place to start.
Have fun! xo, Mark

My Frida inspired trio

I love the little paper flower cut outs filled with glitter!

No Sew Flower Pillow DIY

Spring is here so I thought it was time to make some 3-D no-sew pillows to liven up my home! All you’ll need to make these is a zip up pillow case and a little bit of fabric! There are some amazing washable and dry cleanable fabric glues out there right now so this project is perfect for people who don’t like to sew or just haven’t learned yet.
 Change up the colors and have a complete garden on your sofa!
Have fun! xo, Mark

1/2 yard taffeta fabric
1/4 yard green cotton fabric
Pillow stuffing or pillow form (to fit your sham)

Try using different colors!  (link above)

 Cut 8 layers of taffeta in a large circle
Remove one layer and trim down the remaining layers about 1/4″
Continue to do this until you’ve reached one layer
*This is your center circle
Lightly singe the edges of each circle with a candle so they don’t fray
Glue the circles together with E-6000
*E-6000 is washable and dry cleanable
When dry, create the center of the flower with Allure in a yellow and let dry
Cut out several leaves in green cotton

 Figure out the flower and leaf placement
Add a thin layer of E-6000 Stitchless Glue to the outer edge of each leaf and then iron in place until the glue disappears
Add a stitch design to each leaf with Allure in light blue
When dry, glue on the flowers with more E-6000
Stuff your pillow with a pillow form or pillow stuffing
Zip or stitch closed and you’re done

Golden Geodes DIY

Ok, they’re more like inside out geodes, but they still look amazing.  Lately I’ve been obsessed with growing crystals in the kitchen and I seriously cannot stop!  Last week I decided to paint some basic stones with my beautiful metallic gold Americana Multi-Surface and then see if they could withstand the heat and borax solution.  Guess what….They did!  I absolutely love the way these look and people can’t stop playing with them.  Put them around some
candles and you’ll have an amazing centerpiece.
Glue one on top of a box and you’ll have something truly special.
Have fun!  xo, Mark

Try different colors of food coloring and pipe cleaners make different color crystals

Food Coloring
Pipe cleaners
Large glass jars

 Wash and paint several stones in metallic gold
*The bigger the stone, the larger the end result
Wrap the stones in pipe cleaners and secure in place
Tie a string to the stone and secure it to a pipe cleaner so that it hangs inside of the glass jar
Fill the jar with boiling water and food coloring

 Add 1 tablespoon of borax per cup of boiling water
*You can use more if you want to
Submerge the stone into the water and let set for at least 6 hours
The longer you leave it, the larger it will grow
Remove and let dry

Crystal Ball Jewelry DIY

Did you know you can grow your own crystals in the kitchen with Borax?  Well you can!  I’ve been doing it since I was a kid. Why not fill some tiny glass globes with some crystals to make some magical jewelry pieces?!  It’s much easier than you think.
Have fun!  xo, Mark

*The longer you leave them in, the larger they grow
Make sure they are completely dry
Fill your glass globes with the crystals
Add the globes to a ring or globe cap with E-6000 glue

Faux Malachite Obelisks (made from cardboard)

I’m a huge fan of malachite but unfortunately it’s a little too expensive for my taste.  Tony Duquette, one of my favorite designers, used it like crazy in his home decor.  He also painted tons of furniture in a faux malachite pattern and it always looked amazing!  I thought I’d give it a try with some simple cardboard obelisks.  These are perfect for a desk or bookshelf and if done right, people will think you’re rolling in dough!  Little do they know that they cost just pennies to make.
Enjoy!  xo, Mark

 My handsome pair

I love that they’re just cardboard and newspaper!

White glue
Masking tape
Craft knife

Print out and use to create your pattern
Each square is 1/2″ by 1/2″
Enlarge and make them any size

 Trace the obelisk pattern 4 times, side by side
*Clean up your lines with a ruler
Cut out the entire shape and score so it can be folded
Trace the base pattern, cut and score
Tape all pieces together with masking tape

 Water down some white glue to use as a decoupage medium
Cover the cardboard obelisk in at least one layer of newspaper
When dry, paint the entire obelisk in Sea Breeze and White Acrylic
*The paint doesn’t have to be perfect, it can vary from light to dark
*Make sure to paint all surfaces
Cut jagged edges on a 2″ x 2″ piece of cardboard
Mix equal parts of Evergreen and Glazing Medium
Paint one surface of the obelisk and immediately scrape the surface
with the jagged cardboard to create the malachite effect
*Try circles and scallops and overlap the patterns

 When all surfaces are dry, coat with at least two coats of Minwax Polycrylic

If you want, edge the base with a metallic paint marker by
running it along the edges

Small piece of faux suede
Paintbrush and scissors

 Make sure your shoes are clear of dirt and dust

Glue two circles to each side of the flat part of the clip on earring findings
Slightly bend the butterfly upward so it’s not flat
With more E-6000, glue the other metal part of the clip on to the back of the butterfly

Metallic Tyvek Beads DIY

I get tons of Tyvek envelopes in the mail and one of my favorite things to do with them is make beads!  Just cut them into long triangles and add some heat….It’s that easy!
Plus, you can make them in almost any size and color.  Wrap them with wire and beads and you have something truly wonderful for your jewelry projects.

3-Step Kimono DIY

Danielle has been bugging me to make a kimono video and we finally got around to it.  This one is made with two faux pashmina scarves that I bought for $5 dollars each.  Check stores like Marshall’s and Kohl’s for these kinds of scarves which are always on sale for not very much.  The more pattern the scarves have, the better your kimono will look!
Have fun and big hugs,  Mark

Danielle showing off her new Kimono in our magic garden

This is a great way to add a little boho chic to a plain outfit

2 long “pashmina” scarves
Sewing machine
Matching thread
Straight pins
Measuring tape

Lay the scarves face to face matching the design
Mark the 1/2 way point on one side of the scarves
Pin the scarves together up to 5″ before the 1/2 way point
Stitch them together using 1/2″ seam allowance
*This is your center back seam

Fold one scarf in half lengthwise (right sides together)
Measure up 19″ on the open side (the side you didn’t stitch)
Measure 9″ across the bottom
Connect these two points with pins in a curve as shown with the little black dots
Stitch along the pins and cut out leaving 1/2″ seam allowance
*This will create your sleeve and side seam

Now repeat on the other scarf:
Fold the other scarf in half right sides together
Place the cut pieces from the first side on top for a guide
Cut along the shape and pin together
Stitch using 1/2″ seam allowance

 Keep the cut edges from fraying with E-6000 Fray Lock

Roadside Rescue! Bench to Headboard DIY

Not too long ago I found an amazing headboard on the street and dragged it up 3 flights of stairs to my house.  Yes, my neighbors looked at me AGAIN with those judging eyes, but I had a plan!  I was going to turn this headboard into a colorful bench for my yard and that is exactly what I did….
It was a much easier project than I thought it would be, too!  I still have to find a few matching pillows, but I’m pretty happy with the results so far!

My beautiful bench sitting under my favorite little tree

With my woven outdoor blanket on the seat

The sad, lonely, abandoned headboard

An old headboard
20″ x 80″ x 1″ birch plywood (seat)
*80″ was the width of my headboard so measure accordingly
2 pieces 1″ x 4″ x 80″ pine board (to frame seat)
3 pieces 1″ x 4″ x 20″ pine board (to frame seat)
4 pieces 2″ x 2″ x 18″ pine board (legs)
1 box of 1 3/4″ long wood screws

Screw the 1″ x 4″ x 80″ pine boards to each side of the 20″ x 80″ birch ply seat
Slide the 1″ x 4″ x 20″ pine boards on each side of the seat and screw in place
Slide the 3rd 1″ x 4″ x 20″ pine board 2″ away from the center of the seat and screw in place
*This is for support
Put screws on the sides and on the top of the bench to keep everything in place

Next we are adding 3 legs on the front of the bench
Screw the 2″ x 2″ x 18″ pieces on the inside corners of one side of the seat
Screw a 3rd 2″ x 2″ x 18″ in the center of the first two
Screw the 4th 2″ x 2″ x 18″ leg in the center on the other side
*You will have 3 legs on one side and 1 leg in the center on the other side
Flip the seat upright on it’s legs and screw the headboard to the side with one leg

For my bench I mixed red and blue chalky finish paint to make a deep purple
I painted the outer frame, legs and bench face purple
I painted the details and seat in two different colors of orange
