1// M a t e r i a l s

  • A frame of your choice
  • Glue
  • 7 color swatch samples
  • Dry erase markers
  • Scissors

I n s t r u c t i o n s//

1// Purchase a frame of your choice from your local Target, Walmart, or craft stores.

2// Pick up some color swatches from a hardware store. You may choose the color scheme of your choice. Make sure you have 7 of the multi-colored ones or I guess look at the pictures above and see how many you’ll need. (They are free by the way).

3// Cut the swatches where one color switches to another. You may want to cut the lightest color shorter in length than the others because the lightest color will be used to write the days of the week.

4// Take the glass top off of your frame. Position the color swatches in the areas you want. Don’t forget to leave room at the top for the month.

5// Glue or tape the swatches down. Press firmly and let dry for about 15 minutes if you are gluing.

6// Replace the glass cover. Use dry erase markers to write directly on top of the glass. It should erase easily and smoothly 🙂

Enjoy!

Bedroom Organization.

Accessories., Beauty., DIY'S, Interior/Exterior Design and Decor inspo., Room Decor., Tips.

Who doesn’t want a clean and organized room?? So here are a few things you can do//

1. Necklaces
 
There are more than one way of organizing your jewellery.
 
Option 1:
 
The one in the picture; I believe they use a push a push pin through the wall and place one necklace on a single push pin. This isn’t the most effective way to organize your jewellery because you are making a hole through your wall.


Option 2:
 
Get a corkboard and place a push pin where ever you want; but the most organized way is to place it like this:

Option 3:
 
You can also purchase a regular jewellery organizer:
 

2. Rings / Bracelets / Headbands
 
I normally like to organize each of these accesories in different spaces.
 
Rings:
 
Option 1:
 
The one in the pictures is using a glass plate: I bet you can purchase this in your local Dollar Store or your craft’s store.

Bracelets:
 
Option 1:
 
Use storage jars to place your bracelets. This is the most effective way to organize them.

Option 2: 

Use a tube like a small oatmeal jar or something and color it with paint and just keep your jewelry on it.
 

Headbands:


I think that these organizers are so cute, just because you can personalize them to match your room or whatever.
 

3. Identifying Cords 
 
The one in the picture is so cute and yet easy to make.
 You can get the tabs from buying your weekly loaf of breads, bagels, etc. you know; those tabs to lock the bags. (:
 

BUT; you can also use the wooden clips:

You can personalize the wooden clips by painting them; adding glitter, using stickers, & etc.

 
4. Organizing your desk
 
Magazine holder:
 
You can make your own magazine holder using a cereal box:

After making the magazine box holder, be sure to decorate to spice it up !
 

Pencils/Markers/Crayons:
 
Option 1:
 
Get an ordinary cup; a white one and decorate it !
 
After decorating it; place your pencils, markers, crayons or any writting supplies in there.
 

Option 2:
 
Purchase any holder at your local dollar store:

Option 3:
 
Get a finished soup can; and wash the excess stuff inside.
 
Then: decorate the outside of the can with some pretty paper or fabric , then decorate it however you like.
 
After decorating it; place all your pencils, markers, crayons, and etc in there.

 

Hope these help.

DIY Vase.

DIY'S, Interior/Exterior Design and Decor inspo., Room Decor.

I found this cute vase picture online and apparently someone bought this set for $30 and the middle one for $60 and the bottom one for $140. Like?!?!?!?! If you think I’m lying check it out here.

Shabby Chic Country White Mason Jars for Vases, Centerpiece, Half Gallon Mason Jars for Weddings, Showers, Decor

Shabby Chic Mason Jars for Wedding Decor, Vases, Centerpiece in Turquoise and Aqua, Half Gallon Mason Jars

Here is how you can make it yourself under $15

 

What you need//

-Mason Jars (Michaels sells them for a great price) [If you don’t want to buy Mason jars just use random jars you have at home already for ex from Jelly etc.]

-Paint (You could use spray paint, acrylic paint or even house paint)

-Twine (Twine is sold at any local hardware store, at the grocery store, and even most drug stores)

-Fake flowers (You could get so many for just $1 at Family Dollar or any dollar store)

-[Optional] Any strong glue (Hot glue, gorilla glue etc)

 

1. Start off by washing and cleaning out the mason jar.

2. Paint a light coat of paint onto the jar and wait for it to dry.

3. *optional* If you don’t want that vintage look in the picture above, re-paint the jar after the first coat has dried.

4. Once it’s all dried, circle the jagged top part of the jar (not the lid) with the twine about 3-4 times or until you like how thick it is and after adding a few more inches to that cut.

5. *optional* If you don’t have a strong glue or don’t want to glue it you can tie a cute bow or a little knot to keep it together. If you have a strong glue, glue the two ends together or tie a knot and glue on top of the knot to make sure it’s secure.

6. *optional* If you think it looks fine as it is then just add flowers in (make sure to cut the stem to fit the jar) and you’re done. If you think it looks a bit plain, glue on some random things that you find cute, like buttons, a flower you’re not using in the jar etc.

7. Fill it with flowers, pencils or whatever you like.

 

Hope that was helpful.
