Emoji Pins and Polo Shirt DIY!

I love emoji!  If I could write an entire letter with just emoji, I probably would.  Since I’m also a huge fan of wearing polo shirts, I decided to refashion a few of them with an emoji logo.  It’s much more fun than a boring alligator or dazed looking tiger, don’t you think?  While I was at it I made some fun pins for my jean jacket.  One day I’ll grow up and start dressing like a grown man, but in the mean time I’m going to have a little fun!  Big love, xoxox, Mark!

That is not a POOP!  It’s ice-cream!

My new favorite black polo!

 I almost put a pizza emoji on this, but I thought people might think
I was a delivery guy!

Love the little cat!

Iron on transfer paper (I like Lesley Riley’s TAP)
Cereal box cardboard
Pin backs
E-6000 Stitchless (Iron-on glue)

Emoji to print out

 Print out the emoji on regular copy paper
Glue two pieces of cereal box cardboard together
Glue the emoji to the cardboard and let dry
Carefully cut out the emoji
Add a layer of Diamond Glaze to the top and let dry
Turn over and add a layer to the back
*This will make the cardboard shiny and super hard
With E-6000, add a pin back and let dry

Print out the emoji on the TAP paper
Cut them out and iron them on cotton fabric
Carefully cut out the fabric emoji
Add a small amount of E-6000 Stitchless to the back of the emoji
With a press cloth, iron the fabric emoji to the polo
*Experiment so you get the hang of it BEFORE you iron it on the polo
You’re done!

From Shirt to Dress DIY

Danielle’s boyfriend Scott got mustard on one of her favorite shirts so we decided to save it and turn it into a terrific summer dress.  Here’s how we did it!
Happy Summer!  xoxo, Mark

 From stained shirt to simple summer dress!

Make the skirt as long as you want!

Snip off the buttons and add a separating zipper!

1 1/2 yards of fabric
Sewing machine
Matching thread
30″ long separating zipper

Cut across the shirt 1″ below the waist
If your shirt has pleats or details, run a stitch along the cut
Attach two pieces of 30″ long fabric together side by side
*Our fabric was 54″ wide so we now have a piece that is 30″ x 108″
Lengthen the stitch and loosen the tension on the machine
Run a stitch along the fabric about 1/2″ from the edge
Pull the bobbin thread to gather the fabric

Measure the circumference of the shirt
Gather the fabric to this length and add 2″
Stitch the gathered fabric and the shirt together (right sides together)
Fold the extra one inch over the end of the shirt and stitch
*This will give you a finished edge
Press and then pin the zipper to the front of the dress face down starting at the collar

Stitch on the zipper
*I purposely did not use a zipper foot because I wanted some of the zipper to show
Hand tack the end of the zipper down at the neck
Turn the fabric 1/4″ twice and hem

Duct Tape Succulents and Faux Pinch Pots DIY

Just in case you don’t already know it, I have a black thumb.  Yes, it’s true.  The only thing I can grow successfully is mold in the bathtub.  Thankfully I have other talents like melting things on the stove and gluing random things together!  Today we’re making the ever popular succulent out of duct tape and decorative paper.  We’re also going to melt some plastic bottles to make the most beautiful little faux pinch pots EVER!  I painted them with Americana Decor Chalky Finish and they look fantastic.
Have fun!  xoxo,  Mark

 My handsome little trio!

Dappled sunlight….They almost look real!

Duct tape in various colors
Decorative paper (scrap book paper works)
Heavy plastic bottles

 Place strips of duct tape side by side on the back of the decorative paper
Cut the tape covered paper in strips and then in 1″ to 1 1/2″ pieces
Cut the smaller pieces into 10 small, 10 medium and 10 large leaves
Bend two of the smaller leaves and glue them together
*This is the center of your succulent

Continue working out from the center

Tape 6″ pieces of wire on the back of decorative paper (or scrapbook paper)
*Leave about 2″ – 3″ hanging off of the edge
Cut into long, slim leaves leaving the wire as the stem
Slightly warp the bottom half of a heavy plastic bottle over a flame
*If you’re working inside, make sure a window is open!
Paint them with several coats of Americana Decor Chalky Finish in Lace

If you want, fill the pots with a piece of styrofoam
Add the long slim leaves
Fill with colorful fish tank rocks
Add the duct tape succulents and you’re done!

Free People Inspired Necklace DIY

Not sure about you, but I have boxes of bits and pieces in my craft space.  I save EVERYTHING!  Secretly, I’m a bit of a hoarder, but that’s another story.  Not long ago I was passing by the Free People boutique and noticed these crazy displays using anything and everything.  They’re so good at display, don’t you think?  Anyway, I got the idea to create a necklace inspired by their new vibe.  I think my fab assistant looks terrific in it, too!
Have fun!  xoxo, Mark

My 2nd attempt at creating beauty from chaos!

My first attempt which is a little more abstract

Danielle wearing the Free People Mixed Media necklace

Wax paper (great surface for this project)
Lace pieces
Jewelry findings
Needle nose pliers

 Cut your lace into smaller pieces to create a necklace shape
Glue the pieces together with E-6000
When it’s dry, paint it with the Americana Multi Surface in metallic gold (or silver)

 Start by gluing on cup chain and jewelry pieces
Decorate the lace with Allure Dimensional Design Adhesive Paint in tons of different colors
Add cabochon flowers and crystals
*Allure is also an adhesive so it’s perfect for adding more embellishments

Sprinkle on some beads into the wet allure
When dry add a chain and lobster claw closure for the back


Recycled Magazine Bracelets DIY

Summer is here and it’s time to recycle that big stack of magazines you’ve been saving for no reason. Cut them, roll them, paint them and accessorize your summer wardrobe with these colorful bracelets!  The best part is that you can do most of this while catching up on your favorite TV shows. I painted them with bold colorful stripes, but plain black and white would also look absolutely beautiful.
Have fun! xo, Mark

 Danielle wearing a stack of recycled paper bracelets

 Stack them all the way up your arm!

Why not only paint the edges and the inside!?

Cereal box cardboard
White glue
Magazine pages

 Cut long strips of cardboard
Wrap a strip around your hand to get your bracelet size
Glue the cardboard into a bracelet and then glue on another strip
*This will make it stronger
Clip the cardboard together while it dries
Cut magazine pages into 3″ x 4″ pieces

 Roll the pages into tubes (starting at the corner) and then secure with glue
*You will need about 60 per bracelet
Cut the tubes the width of the bracelet
Glue them side by side all the way around
Paint the inside of the bracelet and let dry

Paint the tubes in different colors all the way around
Dab another color on each edge
Coat with Triple Thick Gloss and let dry
*This will make them extra shiny and sturdy

Try only painting the inside and edges for another amazing look!

No Nails Harlequin Table

I always need a tiny table to pile more of my junk on top of, don’t you? I mean, where else are you going to put that collection of “stuff” that you just can’t part with? So, when I was reading the E-6000 tube the other day, it said that the glue could be used for wood, too! Really? Wood? I had to give it a try. I mean, it is my favorite glue. With a little bit of planning, this is what happened. I loved it so much, I made two.  The other one is for the other pile of “stuff” that I just can’t part with.

 Before it really got piled with stuff!

The colors of my NYC kitchen!

Small hammer
Needle nose pliers
Sandpaper or sanding block
(1) 1″ x 12″ x 18″ – Table Top
(2) 1″ x 2″ x 14″ – Table Skirt
(2) 1″ x 2″ x 9″ – Table Skirt
(4) 1″ x 1″ x 24″ – Legs
(2) 1″ x 1″ x 5 3/4″ – Crossbar Support
(1) 1″ x 1″ x 12 1/4″ – Crossbar Support

 Evenly glue the two 1″x2″x14″ and the two 1″x2″x9″
to the underside of the 1″x12x18″ table top to create the skirt
*Let the glue set for about 15 minutes
Next, glue the 1″x1″x24″ legs on the inside of each corner of the skirt
*Let everything dry for at least one hour

 Glue the 1″x1″x5 3/4″ pieces in between the legs about 8″ up
*Let dry for 1 hour
Glue the 1″x1″x12 1/4″ between the two 5 3/4″ pieces
*Let everything dry for at least 2 hours
With a ruler, create your harlequin (diamond) pattern
Paint the diamonds with Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint

Paint the legs and skirt of the table and let dry
Mark the edge of the table top every inch
Holding the thumbtacks with needle nose pliers, tap them into the edge of the table
Sand the edges with a sanding block or sand paper to expose the wood on the edges


Fully Lined Fox Purse DIY

Why not make yourself (and your friends) a fully lined fox purse for summer and show everyone just how “foxy” you are!  With just a little fabric and sewing, you’ll have the perfect bag for your change, makeup or art supplies!
Have fun! xoxo

 I just realized these are the Howard Johnson’s colors

 Add a colorful tassel to the end of the zipper!

Back to back!

1/4 yard cotton canvas
1/4 yard cotton fabric
Sewing Machine
10″ zipper

Print this template on standard copy paper (8 1/2″ x 11″)

 Pin and cut the lining and bag fabric with the print out
Carefully cut out the fox making sure you use plenty of pins
Edge the fox with E-6000 Stitchless
Center and press the fox on the canvas fabric
Paint on the details with the Americana Multi-Surface Satin Paint
Add a scalloped edge for more detail

 Stitch the zipper face down across the top of the canvas
Fold the bag over and stitch the zipper to the other side
Stitch the lining fabric to the opposite sides of the zipper
*This will trap the zipper and leave clean edges on the inside
Stitch along one side using 1/2″ seam allowance
Stitch along the other side using 1/2″ seam allowance leaving a 3″ opening in the lining
Optional: Fold the canvas to stitch boxed corners

 Trim the zipper on both sides
Pull the bag right side out through the 3″ opening in the lining
Stitch the lining closed and stuff it inside of the bag

I added a small hat and bows using contact paper as a stencil and
more Americana Multi-Surface Satin

Cornstarch and Silicone Molds DIY

I love making my own silicone molds but the molding putty can get expensive!  Well, not any more.  Check out my cornstarch and silicone molds that cure in about 20 minutes!  These molds are super easy to make (also a bit messy) and you can make tons of them for very little money.  In my crafty lab, I found that air dry clay, Sculpey and 2-part plastics work best in these molds.  If you’re not familiar with 2-part plastics, they are wonderful and cure in about 10 minutes.  I’ll put a link to where you can get some below.  Have fun, go forth and make molds!
xo, Mark!

The stop watch mold is one of my favorites!

 Add a little paint to give them some color!

Try the putty on a small statue or doll face!

Baby oil
Mixing bowl
Objects to cast

 Squeeze out enough silicone to cover your object
Add in about 1/2 the amount of cornstarch
Add a small dab of Americana Acrylic Paint
Add in several drops of baby oil
Mix thoroughly with a small spoon or stick
*Cover your hands in cornstarch and knead

Roll the putty into a ball
Press in your item making sure it covers all the details
Let cure for about 20 minutes
Remove the object
Fill with 2 part plastics, Sculpey or air dry clay

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!

Hot glue and white glue
Dollar store frame
Craft knife
Copy of post-card or artwork
Paper flowers

 Take the frame apart
Cut your image the size of the frame cardboard
Mount image on the cardboard with white glue
Cut several strips of 1 1/2″ wide cardboard
Cut a cardboard 1/2 circle the width of the mounted art
Hot glue the cardboard pieces together to create a frame around the image
*The 1/2 circle is the base

Paint the frame with Americana Acrylics in several bright colors
Add white glue and glitter to the corners of the frame
Paint scallops on the edges in contrasting colors
Use the Allure to add dimensional dots to all of the edges in different colors
Glue in paper flowers, jewelry and game pieces
Hot glue the glass to the face of the shrine
Dot more Allure around the edges of the glass
