At this point, New Year’s Eve could probably just be renamed “National Sequin Day,” and I, for one, have no problem with that. If you’re in the mood to get crafty this weekend and want to add some extra sparkle to your NYE outfit, check out these awesome cocktail rings made from wooden beads and sequin strings. For best results, pair your new sparkly jewelry with a sparkly dress and sparkling wine. [Martha Stewart]

If you’re anything like us, your wine-drinking skills probably merit a trophy or two (examples: Most Improved Pallet and Best Balancing of Wine Glass On The Edge Of The Bathtub), so why not give yourself that trophy you deserve, in the form of a quirky DIY wine cork? If you still have your t-ball participation trophies floating around the attic, great, but if not, you’ll be able to find cheap (and delightfully flamboyant) trophies at your local thrift store for a buck or two. The only other supplies needed are a fresh cork and superglue. Oh, and some Merlot to sip while you get crafty. [Country Living]

7 Grown-Up Versions Of Childhood Craft Projects

The other day, Amelia and I got to talking about this awesome DIY lampshade. “It’s like papier maché for adults,” I said, which led us into a brief discussion about how to spell “papier-mâché,” which led us into a much longer discussion about all the childhood craft projects we missed. Dreamcatchers! Decoupage! Friendship bracelets! But what if we didn’t have to miss them? What if there were updated versions of these very projects that were fun to do and yielded beautiful results? Turns out there are — click through to check out seven grown-up variations of our favorite childhood crafts…

Weekend Project: Make Your Own Himmeli Mobile!

I love adding 3D design elements to a room but I hate adding clutter to surfaces, so I’m totally on board with any cool thing that hangs from the ceiling. Pretty sure this himmeli mobile is the definition of “cool thing that hangs from the ceiling.” Commonly used as Christmas decorations in Finland, these unique geometric designs would look great in an office or living room, and all you need to make your own is colorful coffee straws, string, scissors (or “siccors,” in Lochte speak), and a needle. Now go on and make your high school math teacher proud! [The Red Jet]

I get easily intimidated by Martha Stewart’s craft projects, because Martha is a crafting goddess and I definitely fall into the “crafting mortal” category. That being said, these fabric flower rings look genuinely easy to make (as long as you’re confident with a hot glue gun), and I love the result: so dainty and pretty. Martha recommends giving them out to your bridesmaids. Personally? I’ll be making a full bouquet to wear myself. [Martha Stewart]

We love the look of ombre anything, and these denim cutoffs are no exception. Want to customize a pair of your own this weekend? It’s super easy–all you need is RIT dye and a bucket (or a sink, or an empty potato salad container, or whatever). We think a lighter colored denim would look amazing with a cobalt blue dye, but hey, there’s only one way to find out! [Honestly WTF]

Cool Trick: How To Make Scrambled Eggs Still In The Shell

Yesterday, I kind of fell down a major DIY rabbit hole. No, I wasn’t actually doing Do-It-Yourself projects all day; I was just reading about them on the internet. I tend to file DIY projects in three categories: 1) cool projects I would do if I had the time (a custom headboard made from scrap wood!) 2) stupid projects I would never waste my time on (why would I make my own laundry soap?), and 3) cool projects I actually DO have the time for. I came across this particular trick on the blog Obsessionist, and while it’s not exactly DIY, it’s still cool and not time-consuming. Because who doesn’t want to know how to make scrambled eggs still in the shell, especially when all you really need is a pair of stockings?! [Obsessionist] Keep reading »
