Hi everyone!!!!

Today we will see how we can recycle plastic pots in a very quick way: using ordinary rope.

In a previous post we did something similar with twine, but this one is even easier because with simple rope (which is thicker than twine), it will take a very short time to cover even big pots.

Let’s get started!!!

PLASTIC POTS RECYCLING: ROPE BOWLS

material:

big plastic pot – rope – hot glue

All you have to do here is to take a large plastic pot and, starting from the base, apply the rope moving upwards until you reach the border.

Use hot glue to stick the rope to the pot.

If you want a more elegant look, you can also apply fabric in the interior.

Your rope bowl is ready!!!

DIY (280) – Nail Art: nail decorating ideas

Hi everyone!!!!

Today we will talk about a topic a bit ‘different from usual: the decoration of nails.

In a few moves you can create special effects like lace. If you are good enough to draw, just use a brush and draw a decoration yourself, maybe starting from a simple pattern and then venture into more difficult subjects.

If you really think you can not do, for example a lace effect, there are many decorations on the market ready to be applied on the nails.

Let’s get started!!!

DIY N. 280

NAIL ART: NAIL DECORATING IDEAS

material:

BRUSH – white enamel – colored enamel

First, apply a base on your nails and then the colored nail polish.

Dip the brush in white (or black, if you prefer), and make drawings (at the beginning the simplest possible).

Pass a layer of transparent enamel and you’re done!

You’ve got beautiful decorated nails!!!

And since we’re close to Halloween… why not try something as original as the photos below?

I hope you enjoyed also today’s creative idea.
