I made a jewelry organizer DIY because over the years I have been slowly growing my collection. Its also really hard to tell what you have and don’t have when its all in a small trinket box waiting to be discovered. I decided to go to Michael’s and see what they had in stock for inspiration. Guess what I found?! I beautiful had chipboard wired letter. I believed it said planter on the back but that’s is not what I planned to do with this beauty.
I got it home right away with a couple of other things and then went to work.
I used my favorite stain mahogany and let the chipboard soak it up. I let it sit outside for 24 hours to make sure did not have a strong odor.
Afterwards I went to work on hooks to hand the jewelry from it. If it was Christmas time I would have used ornament hooks but since its only spring I needed to make my own. I had jewelry wire and pliers.
I cut a piece or wire which I then bent both end in a hook fashion, that’s all you really need to do.
I placed all my cute necklaces on it with my beautiful stones which help me find what I needed right away.
What do you guys think? I going back to get a couple more letters and use. I also got actual necklace holder which looks great next to my jewelry organizer DIY.
Collage clay mod podge was not something I thought at first I would be interested in but it definably grew on me. I just saw how your can do so much with it and I just happen to have some in my craft closet. I had initially use it to decorate my ice cream sundae glasses but now I though it would be fun to decorate my phone case. I like to show my personality as much as I can especially since I can be a shy person when I meet people at first. It always fun to have something that can initiate conversation.
The good thing about mod podge collage clay a phone case is that you can add anything you wish to your phone case. I decided to maybe try to do some theme phone cases. Maybe do a Halloween theme since its right around the corner.
The first thing I did was add the collage clay on top of the phone.
I added Halloween buttons that I found at Joann’s jewelry section. I just enjoy Halloween and I wanted a case that would show that off! The collage clay take 24 hours to dry so you can change it around as much as you want.
Give collage clay a try and tell me what you think!! I did one case all grave yard themed and the other spider filled. I had purchased a couple of resin flower from an etsy buyer. I do think it helps add a little something special to it.
When I first came to California I spend almost every weekend at the beach and collected the most beautiful white rocks I could find. I have a full bucket of them now and I still have not figured out what do to with them until today. I decided to make them into rings. Some I will leave the beautiful white and other I will make cute designs to. The best part is that you will only need a couple of things to make this cute little ring.
I got rings at the local craft store and some E6000 to glue the rocks to the rings. I did not know if it was going to work at first but it did!
After the glue has dried I went to work trying to figure out designs. I use the word love on the first ring because Valentines is around the corner and it seemed fitting.
I also used a gold sharpie to do the gold dots on the second ring because gold is in right now.
You are able to make them and put your every own style into each ring. I am thinking that I will use words on my ring rather than try to make designs. Then I can show everyone the kind of mood I am in. I like how easy it was using a sharpie on the rocks so I could get the perfect design on them.
So tell me what word would you like to have on your rock ring?
I’ve had this beauty for a while and wanted to share it with you all. I made a R2D2 Star Wars ring. I know that we are all geeks at heart or we know someone who is a geek and they would all love a geek ring like this one. All it takes it some basic supplies and a little painting talent to make that geeky person happy.
The mold I got from thinkgeek.com and they have very nice stuff for any geek in your life. I place a little bit of white sculpey in the mood and baked it the oven.
Once the mold has cooled, just pop it out and start painting. I used acrylic paints blue, gray and white.
Once you have painted the R2D2 and dried apply a acrylic sealer. The sealer will help keep the paint on the R2D2. The last thing you want is to drop it and have paint come off, trust me, hehe.
I used a ring setting and glued it with E600. Now you have your very own Star Wars R2D2 ring.
You can have a matching set with the Storm Trooper ring and necklace I made last year!
