Of course you can use the cans also for bracelets and for creating other diy jewelry.

All you need for this project is a soda can, earring hooks, and scissors. They are ready in minutes and, if you use a can that is quite brilliant, you won’t even need to color them.

Let’s start!!!

DIY (186) – Bottle recycle: soap dispenser

Hi everyone!!!

I found this such a cute way to recycle an old bottle. All you will need is the dispenser that you can find in most supply stores and online.

Let’s start!!!

DIY N. 186

BOTTLE RECYCLE: SOAP DISPENSER

material:

old bottle – bottle dispenser

All you need here is a bottle and a dispenser.

Rinse the bottle well and fill with liquid soap. Close the bottle with the dispenser cap. If you’re not lucky enough that it fits your bottle, you will need to use glue to keep it together.

DIY (185) – Paper Basket

Hi everyone!!!

How much paper do we throw away? In this post we will see how to make a very simple paper basket.

Let’s start!!!

DIY N. 185

PAPER BASKET

material:

recycled paper (from magazines or newspapers) – glue – circular wood base

Cut the newspaper into long strips 6 cm wide.

Fold them once and then again.

Make circles and turn the strip around until you get rings of the desired size (you can make different sizes).

Once you have enough circles, start composing your vase sticking them on a circular base (it can be in wood, but you can also use another circular object, such as painted mason jar caps). When you reach the desired size, close using the glue.

Now it’s up to you on how to place the different pieces.

Your paper basket is ready!

DIY (183) – Mod podge

Hi everyone!!!

You might ask what is Mod podge.

Mod Podge can act as both a glue and a sealer. You can use it to glue paper or fabric, to a box, or frame. You can even use it to add glitter to an item. The possibilities are endless.

It’s very easy to do it at home and it can turn out very useful if you end up your glue and you need it urgently.

Let’s start!!!

DIY N. 183

MOD PODGE

material:

1 and 1/2 cups flour – 1/4 cup of sugar – 1 cup of water – 1/4 tsp oil

Add the 1 and 1/2 cups flour 1/4 a cup of sugar, 1 cup water, and 1/4 a tsp oil.

You should add flour and water until you get your desired consistancy as these measurements are just ideas of what you may want. If you’d like a higher varnish you should add more oil.

Your Mod podge is ready.

DIY (182) – Paper bookmarks

Hi everyone!!!

Here we go with another craft idea regarding bookmarks. It will take you minutes to make these paper bookmarks!

Let’s start!!!

DIY N. 182

PAPER BOOKMARKS

material:

Colored cardstock (not too thick because you should be able to fold it) – glue – scissors – template (below)

Start by printing the template below in the desired size.

If you want to make it yourself, you just have to draw three squares on your cardstock and mark with a line in two of the squares (you should get the shape of two triangles within each square, like the picture above).

Cut out the shape obtained and fold on the lines.

Close one of the triangles inwards and sprinkle with some vinyl glue (if you don’t have it you can use the glue stick).

Close also the other triangle, gluing it to the first one. Then open the folded flap, so as to recompose the square.

Now you can use all your creativity in coloring your bookmarks: you can add teeth, eyes, etc,

Or, you can leave it simple by just adding some lace:
