diy twist back top

This is a really great DIY for beginner sewers who want to try their hand at making clothing. Cotton jersey is a great fabric to work with because it doesn't fray and it has beautiful drape.

  • Boxy t-shirt (to use as a pattern)
  • Cotton jersey fabric (1 yard total- I used 1/2 stripe and 1/2 yard melon)

diy marbled earrings

Polymer clay is really fun to work with and you can achieve beautiful patterns by blending the colors together. These earring have the appearance of stone but the clay makes them much more lightweight.

  • Polymer clay (1 pack translucent, 1 pack dark brown, 1 pack bronze)
  • X-Acto knife
  • Earring hooks
  • 2 chains that measure each 3 1/4 inches long
  • Jump rings
  • Jewelry pliers

diy trellis

I wanted to add something pretty to the blank space between two windows at my house, so a trellis seemed like a perfect solution. This was really easy to make, took about an hour and costs around $20!

Supplies (finished trellis measures 5 1/2 feet wide X 7 1/2 feet high )
  • Cedar lumber (this lumber was bundled together at Home Depot and costs $15)
  • Wood screws 
  • Primer
1)Cut 4 pieces to measure 7 1/2 feet long (these will be the vertical boards)
2) Cut 5 pieces to measure 5 1/2 feet long (these will be the longer horizontal boards)
3) Cut 4 pieces to measure 32 inches long (these will be the shorter horizontal boards)
