Since the spring is decided not to come to our town and I am tired of wearing my winter boots I altered my rain boots while I felt I will be using them for couple of weeks to come.
To begin with I had these cheap leopard print wellies. I didn’t think of them much but I had them around just in case.
I used a hole buncher to have the holes for the ribbon to go through but since the ribbon was much wider than the hole I made two holes under one another to give the ribbon more space.
What do you think?
A little whle ago one of my very best friend had a birthday. There wasn’t a big party or anything, but i really wanted to make her something cute and simple with my own hands. It didn’t turn out how I planned cuz my time was extremely limted (got noone else but myself to blame
!) put here’s what I made – a cherry/berry keychain and a colour block necklace. l placed them into a selfmade box, if I can even call it a box, anyway I wrote a little birthday poem to the bottom of it, grabbed champagne and flowers and was ready to go.
I’m sure you guys have Nutella hidden somewhere in your kitchen! Now if you are as much of a sweettooth that I am, then it shouldn’t be a problem to empty your half full jar quickly and turn it into a centerpiece with some other old jars that you have been keeping for … well, just incase.
If that’s not the case, then your welcome, I just gave you a good reason to go and buy yourself one.
Truth to be told it doesn’t matter what kind of jar you have. Because jars are amaizing and that’s that.
Here’s what I used. Nutella jars, some leftover ribbon from the chain-bracelet project and decoration salt and ofcourse some candles, tea candles in my case. Decoration salt wasn’t my first choice, I was thinking about more earthy materials like sand or small rocks but our living room purple curtains are hypnotising.
Fool, cuz this was my first time having fun with a chain and ribbon. So I tried two simple but different styles in one bracelet. I don’t know why I never did it until now. I guess there’s just alot of things I need to try out and faster. Picked a light yellow ribbon to work with, cuz it was just so lovely sunny day and I felt like summer is coming, nevermind the snow. So all I needed for this project was 50 cm of a black chain and a little bit longer yellow ribbon. Since I love having tiny bows everywhere, I didn’t even think about having anything extra for attachment.
So I started kind of a spring-cleaning today, tho it started to snow pretty hard again. To be honest I hoped a little bit that I can pack most of winter stuff and just make more space, but I guess I have to put this thought on hold for a while.
I tried to rearrange my room, but it turned out harder than planned. Partly cuz I have a tiny room and partly cuz I have a very heavy couch and it didn’t really want to cooperate with me. Pushing and pulling it back and forth for couple of hours gave me a quite good workout and I needed it, so all good in the end.
I also made smaller updates. Like changing the ribbons on my jars and the contents.
So I have nail polishes in one, earrings in the second and bracelets in the third one now. Oh them lil things just get a tiny smile on my face :).
