Headaches suck. I’ve suffered from them since I was a little girl and they are the worst. Now, my kids are starting to get headaches and it’s bumming me out. Although my headaches aren’t classified as migraines any more, I still get severe headaches about once a month. They are caused by allergies, stress, caffeine, and pretty much if people look at me the wrong way. Although I have medicine that I take, there is one thing that I always turn to when I need headache relief. Someone made me a DIY freezer bag when I was in college to help me with my headaches. And I have used it ever since. Now with the kids needing headache relief too, I decided that we needed to make more of these bags and that you might benefit from them too. I’ll be honest, there had been fights over who got to use the freezer bag. Read on for the tutorial. If you don’t know how to sew (like me!) grab a friend who does!
My kids practically have to drag me out of the upholstery area of the craft store since I always want to see what their tassel selection looks like. I had this huge spool of gold sequin trim just hanging out (with everything else) in my garage and knew I wanted to make something with it. Long story short, here’s a sequin tassel DIY. I made these as flair for my balloon Valentine’s but they can be used in so many other ways!
Marble is so hot right now. It’s totally classic and trendy at the same time and I want it on everything. But I don’t really have any money to spend on it. So I thought to myself, “Self. How can you get that look for less?” And I’m real smart. Plus I have a raging addiction to Amazon which lead me to the best marble product ever. And I figured out how to make this DIY tray with a faux marble look. You know you want one too.
My youngest son has a birthday just a few days after Christmas. In a way it’s good because it forces me to get the holidays wrapped up, the decorations put a way and that huge mound of gifts sorted out. But then it’s a rush to get things ready to celebrate him. We usually do a family dinner on the actual birthday and a party when we can fit it in around the family’s holiday schedule. While the party is a little more detailed in the decorations department, the family dinner is much more casual. This DIY table runner is a great birthday idea for creating a little fuss over the guest of honor without creating a ton of more work for yourself.
I’m super crafty in my head but when it comes right down to it, I’m pretty limited in my DIY skills. Like, bags and things. I may be able to sew a straight line, but I could never whip up a little pouch with a zipper. So here are some DIY gift ideas, for all the gals on your list, that are super simple and can be made by any skill level! Did I mention they are super cute? ‘Cause they are.
Bugs are not awesome. But I can totally tolerate these fabric bugs. These bugs are even kind of cute. I like to imagine that if one of these bugs bit you, you would end up with a cute little heart-shaped scar and be filled with happiness venom.
