DIY (248) – Recycling paper doilies: roses

Hi evryone!!!!

We’ve seen so many ways to create flowers with paper and fabric.

Today we will see an even simpler method to create beautiful decorative roses, using simple paper doilies.

The beauty of this project is that you won’t have to waste much time creating the lace design on your roses since the paper doily already provides it.

Let’s get started!!!

DIY N. 248

RECYCLING PAPER DOILIES: ROSES

material:

paper doilies – scissors – glue

This is also a very easy project to do.

Cut on one side of your doily starting from the decorated part and stopping at 0.5 cm of the white part.

Cut out the inside.

Begin to roll up one of the two openings until you create your flower.

I advise you to use some glue (hot glue or for paper) from time to time, in order to avoid that your flower will unravel.

Your rose is ready!!!

DIY (246) – Fabric recycling: fabric covers for containers

Hi everyone!!!!

Today we’re talking about fabric recycling!

In a few minutes you can prepare these fabric lids for your containers. I prefer the use of cotton, especially if the containers are to be used for food.

Comfortable, practical, you can use them thousands of times since you can wash them.

Let’s get started!!!

DIY N. 246

FABRIC RECYCLING: FABRIC COVERS FOR CONTAINERS

material:

fabric – needle and thread – elastic (1 cm) – pencil or fabric marking pen

This is a very easy project to do.

First take the container for which you want to create your lid.

Place it on the wrong side of the fabric and draw with a pencil the shape of the container (with a margin of at least 10 cm).

Fold the edge (about 1 cm and 1/2) and sew it, leaving a small piece open at the end so you can insert your elastic.

To know how much elastic you will need, I recommend you to place the fabric on top of your container before sewing the edge.

Depending on the edge, choose the size of the elastic (which should be slightly shorter than the container circumference, in order to close tightly your container.

Once inserted the elastic, sew the two ends and close the seam of the edge.

Your fabric lid is ready!!!

I hope you enjoyed also today’s creative idea.
