What’s better than a quick and simple craft? One that turns out this cute! We are always looking for new ways to upgrade our desk area. Besides, working in a space that inspires you is most important! Every day we encourage you to bring your A game. With this ‘Slay’ pencil holder, we hope to inspire you to keep going and never give up! Follow along to see just how easy this DIY is.

What you’ll need:

  1. Jar
  2. Gold sharpie
  3. Chalk paint

Grab all your supplies and let’s get started!

Begin by painting the jar. You may need a few coats to ensure a nice, vibrant color.

Once the paint has completely dried, grab your sharpie and write or doodle whatever word or phrase you like!

We went with this because who doesn’t need a little motivation sometimes ūüėČ

Store your pencils, pens, scissors and whatever else in here and place on your desk!

Back to school DIY notebook

We have another exciting back to school DIY you are sure to LOVE! This one involves our brand new stickers. Have you ordered your own sticker pack yet? They’re the perfect thing to decorate your school supplies with. Today we took a plain notebook and turned it into anything but boring. With all these fun designs, it was hard to choose! Follow along to see what we did to spice up our journal.

Supplies: 

  1. Notebook
  2. Pura Vida stickers
  3. Glue
  4. Scissors
  5. Decorational paper

We decided to recycle our Monthly Club folder for this craft. However, feel free to use any sort of craft paper or magazine cutouts. We trimmed the flowers out to use them as decoration on our notebook!

Once you have your cutouts, pick which stickers you want to use!

Place all the decorations exactly how you want it first before you stick or glue anything down.

Once you have the right design in your head, stick on the stickers and glue down the cutouts!

Now your notebook is good to go! Which stickers would you use? Tell us in the comments!

You can never have too many jewelry displays. Luckily, you can make almost anything into a storage place for some of your favorite accessories! We are LOVING this DIY because it cost little to nothing to make! We gathered all our supplies at the dollar store and if that doesn’t excite you, we don’t know what will. Create this ULTA cute dish with the following supplies:

What you will need:

-Dollar store soap dish

-Sharpie

-Mod Podge

Customize the dish by grabbing a sharpie and drawing whatever pattern(s) you want!

We went with this ūüėČ

To ensure that the sharpie stays protected, go over the dish with a layer of mod podge. Then, allow to dry.

Ta-da! Place it on your dresser and throw some bracelets in it. Are you as obsessed as we are?

Ocean Glass Bottles

August 14, 2016 — by Chelsey Bishoff

IMG_3725.jpg

Who else loves to recycle? WE DO! For our little DIY this week we took a piece of the sea back home with us. Besides, who actually likes to say goodbye to the shore? Create your own island vibes in your very own home with just a few items!

What You’ll Need:

-Your favorite kind of seashells, sea dollars or any other beachy accent.

-Super glue & scissors

-Jute

-A few glass jars or bottles. We recycled some old spice bottles! We encourage you to get creative and reuse a material you already have in your home.

Let’s get started!

 


Here, all we did was begin to wrap the jute around the top of our bottle as shown below:


After we glued the ends to keep the jute in place, we added a seashell right in the center using super glue.



For our next bottle, we didn’t add as much jute, only a few wraps around the top.


We decided to put a sea dollar on this bottle. We slipped the jute through one of the holes in the sea dollar. Then tied the jute in the back, allowing the sea dollar to dangle just a bit.


Can’t forget to add a star fish!


Always a good day when creating your own beachy escape.


Finished product!


We tied jute around the neck of the bottle so we could hang them. Make yours whatever length you want!
