Toilet Paper Roll Gift Wrapping

by Dinah Wulf

Toilet Paper Roll Gift Wrapping (5)

If you have been following along both of my blogs, this one and Inheriting Our Planet, you may have noticed all the posts I have been writing about my amazing trip to Villa del Palmar at The Islands of Loreto in Mexico! Of COURSE I had to bring home a few souvenirs from my trip. Thanks to my Mother In Law, she gave me the inside scoop that Mexico has THE BEST vanilla extract so I always know it’ll be a hit when I get home. I ended up using Toilet Paper Roll Gift Wrapping to present my gifts to my friends and family.

Materials:

  • Gift (duh!)
  • Toilet Paper Rolls (duh!)
  • Decorative Paper
  • Tissue Paper
  • Scissors
  • Paper Cutter
  • Double-sided tape
  • Ribbon
  • Hot Glue and Glue Gun (optional)

It just so happens that a small bottle of vanilla extract fits perfectly in a toilet paper roll.  I KNEW I was hoarding toilet paper rolls for a reason!

I picked some colorful and bright paper that reminded me of Mexico,  cut it to size with my paper cutter, and secured it with double sided tape. FYI, toilet paper rolls are 4.5” long.

Next, I simply rolled the bottle in some tissue paper and inserted it into the roll.

Next, I tied a ribbon on each end.

Now, the bottle was a little thin and slid around in the tube, so I put a little dab of hot glue into the tube to keep it from sliding around and it worked beautifully.

I can’t wait to give them away, especially to my Mother In Law!

DIY Chalkboard Clothespin Tags

by Dinah Wulf

DIY Chalkboard Clothespin Tags How To

These cute little versatile DIY chalkboard clothespin tags are perfect for creative gift wrapping, party favors, name place cards, or even gardening or home organization labels.  They are inexpensive to make and you only need a few materials.

Materials:

  • Wooden Shape Cut-Outs
  • Chalkboard Paint
  • Foam Paint Brush
  • Scrap Paper
  • Clothespins
  • Glue
  • Chalk

I found these cute little wood cut-outs at Michael’s for .29 each but then I got 15% off of that, so they were roughly four for a dollar.

DIY Chalkboard Clothespin Tags

I painted one side using a foam brush.  I like using this type of brush because the edges stay nice and neat so that only the front of the wooden cut-out is painted.

DIY Chalkboard Clothespin Tags Easy

Tip: You may have noticed on previous posts, I like to save packing paper and reuse it.  It’s easy to store and doesn’t take up much space and it’s perfect for protecting any craft workspace.  I use it especially when I do kids crafts that involve paint with my daughter.

Two coats will suffice, but I did three, allowing one hour in between each coat.  I find that waiting works best when working with chalkboard paint.

Lastly, I glued each painted chalkboard tag to a clothespin.  You can use any type of glue. I personally prefer hot glue in this craft.

DIY Chalkboard Clothespin Tags Craft Idea

Tip: I noticed after the fact that it was easier to glue on the wood cut-out BEFORE painting it so that it is easier to hold while painting and less messy on your fingers!

I used these for little party favors but you can use them for several purposes. They would be adorable as place cards settings for a dinner party or even a wedding or shower.  You can also use them to label and organize craft supplies as well.

DIY Cards or Invitations for Any Occasion

by Dinah Wulf

DIY Cards School Photo

Sometimes it’s really tough living so far away from family.  We live in California while my side of the family lives on the East Coast and my husband’s side of the family lives in the Mid-West. It’s especially difficult when you have a little one who always asks for their grandparents at night or when there is only Dad and Mom in the audience for a dance recital, while all the other little ones maxed out their ticket limits. Because of this, I get creative with good ‘ole snail mail when I send out Mia’s artwork, school pictures, and dance photos, etc. to all the grandparents and aunts and uncles. So, I thought I’d share something you can make for anytime. Here is my quick tutorial for DIY Cards or Invitations for Any Occasion.

Materials:

  • Cardstock
  • Paper Cutter
  • Various Large Circle Punches (at least 2 sizes)
  • Double-Sided Tape
  • Wallet Sized Photos
  • Envelopes

Cut the desired size for your card. You can fold them vertically or horizontally.  The larger cards pictured here are 5”X7”.

DIY Cards Any Occassion

I wanted Mia’s grandparents to be able to remove the card and have the full wallet size photo intact just in case they wanted to remove it and show it off! So, I cut a 4”X4” square. Each card will use 2 different sized circles. Cut the smaller circle into the square piece.

DIY Cards Any Occassion (1)

Next, cut out a large circle, and use the smaller circle punch to cut a hole inside the larger circle to match the square. (Say that 10 ties fast!)

DIY Photo Cards

Assemble the picture as shown.

DIY Peephole Cards

Tip: I only put one small piece of tape on the picture (again, just in case the parents want to disassemble the card and carry the photo in their wallet).

DIY Cards Invitations

Tape the photo to the front of the card.

DIY Cards How To

There you have it! You can use these for invitation, birthday cards, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, or anytime cards!

Easy Shell DIY Napkin Rings

by Dinah Wulf

Easy Shell DIY Napkin Rings

I love entertaining outdoors during the warm weather months. I wanted to make some fun beach inspired napkin rings to add a little DIY to my table setting this summer. Here is how I made these easy shell DIY napkin rings. You only need a few materials.

Materials:                   

  • Shells
  • Rope
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue and Glue Gun
  • Strong Bonding Agent like E6000

How to Make Napkin Rings

Instructions:

I found the rope at Home Depot. I was able to make these nautical themed vases, this fabric bunting, this other fabric bunting, and eight of these napkin rings (and more) out of one package. Cut each piece into about 6 inches. Play around with the length to reach your desired ring size. Simply hot glue the ends together to form a ring.  I like to use hot glue because it dries quickly and holds the rope very well.

DIY Rope Napkin Rings

Glue the shell on top, covering where the ends of the rope meet. I used E600 for a fast and strong bond. Here are a few close ups.

Easy Nautical DIY Napkin Rings

I love how they turned out.  Consider making these with other trinkets to match your theme or décor. You can even wrap them up to make a cute gift for Mother’s Day, or even a fun and thoughtful house warming gift. Hmmm… which gives me another idea! Ha! Stay tuned!

Red, White, and Blue DIY Feather Hair Clips

by Dinah Wulf

easy red white and blue head piece (5)

I know yesterday I shared Easy Dollar Bin Headbands that I made for my daughter, but I was on a roll with hair pieces so I thought I’d share another one I made for my friend and I to wear at an annual Fourth of July party that we go to.  Last year I made this one and this year I made these Red, White, and Blue DIY Feather Hair Clips.

Materials:

  • Felt
  • Metal Hair Clips
  • Hot Glue and Glue Gun
  • Fabric Flowers
  • Feathers
  • Scissors

Fabric flowers are fun to make on your own, but when I come across a good sale, I just can’t pass up a great deal. I picked up these flowers and a whole bag of feathers for next to nothing.

easy red white and blue head piece

I simply arranged the flower cluster on a piece of felt and hot glued it on. I cut off the access felt with fabric scissors.

Next I hot glued on a metal hair clip.

In a few minutes, I had two fun and festive hair pieces for my friend and me.

You can clip them directly on your hair, or clip them onto a headband like this.

Easy Dollar Bin Headbands

by Dinah Wulf

dollar store headbands (2)

My daughter will be turning age four soon and I think she gets more girly and more girly every day.  Because she loves dressing up with skirts and dresses and shoes, it gets a little expensive.  I always try to find ways to save a little money here and there.  The other day, I went craft shopping and found some great deals to make inexpensive and easy dollar bin headbands for her.

You only need a few items.

Materials:

  • Headbands
  • Felt Craft Flowers
  • Felt Craft Bows
  • Hot glue and glue gun

With coupons in hand, I spent less than $6.00 for these three headbands I made and have left over embellishments for other projects. I found the plain glitter headbands for a dollar each at Joann Fabrics and Craft Stores and I found the felt embellishments in the dollar bins at Michael’s.

dollar store headbands

I actually thought about making the felt flowers myself, but these were so cute I had to buy them!  Each pack was $1.50 and I had a 30% off coupon for all three. I couldn’t pass it up! I simply glued each piece to the headbands. My daughter LOVES them. She wears one every day. They are pretty sturdy as well.

Here are a few pictures of Mia wearing them.

Upcycled Thrift Store Teapots

by Dinah Wulf

upcycled thrift store teapots

If you can’t tell by now, I have been obsessed with getting ready for a Mad Hatter Tea Party themed baby shower I am decorating.  The party isn’t until June but as my friends will tell you I always start WAY in advance for things like this. I like to get the creative juices flowing! The other day I shared my Easy Upcycled Thrift Store Tea Cups and today I am sharing my Upcycled Thrift Store Teapots from all the great finds I got at the Goodwill.

First of all, I have to say that I found some GREAT STUFF at Goodwill. I have a few tips I go by when I thrift shop:

  1. Don’t buy it just because it’s cheap. Buy it because you love it!
  2. Ask what the color of the day is, that means it’s 50% off.
  3. When looking for pieces, think outside the color because that can always be changed.
  4. Ask for a discount if there is something wrong with the piece.

Here’s all the loot I got this time around.  Check out all my thrift store loot the first time around!

thrift store teapots

Tip number three was helpful in this case because, I was drawn to the shape of these pots, but they didn’t match the décor style I was going for. Here they are BEFORE.

thrift store teapots makeover

All I did was simply spray paint them with Krylon’s Metallic Gold Paint (two light coats).

thrift store teapots party centerpiece

Now, a Christmas themed teapot completely fits my décor style for this party. These little flower pots would also make a great DIY gift for a mother, teacher, or friend.

painted thrift store teapots

This teapot had a chipped lid, but that’s OK! It was dirt cheap and I don’t need the lid anyway because I am using it as a flower vase. By the way, I will be using fresh flowers at the party…just sayin…

So, thrift store shopping is a fantastic way to save money when decorating for fun events like this! In case you missed it, check out my other ideas I have for this Mad Hatter Tea Party Baby Shower:

No Sew Patriotic Kitchen Towel

by Dinah Wulf

No Sew Patriotic Kitchen Towel

I have become obsessed with making festive holiday themed kitchen towels! Recently, I made a Valentine’s Day kitchen towel, a St. Patrick’s Day kitchen towel, and an Easter Kitchen Towel so I thought I’d keep it up and make a No Sew Patriotic Kitchen Towel too! I went back to Jo-Ann Fabrics to see if I could find some patterns I like to make my own.  I made it similar to the Easter towel because the permanent fabric tape worked better than the fusible web. Here is how I made it.

Materials:

  • Plain kitchen towels
  • Fabric of choice
  • Permanent Fabric tape
  • Ironing board
  • Iron
  • Spray Starch
  • Yardstick
  • Scissors

I found two red and blue patterns that I really liked and thought looked nice together for the fourth.  I wanted some different shades of blue and red rather than the traditional bold red and blue. The fabric quarters were again great for this project.

no-sew-july-fourth-kitchen-towels

I also had these kitchen towels from the other kitchen towels I made. I washed them in the washing machine and dried them before I started.

white-kitchen-towels

I cut out my fabric in strips.  I ironed them to make it easier to align them on my towel and I used some spray starch as well.

no-sew-july-fourth-kitchen-towels (1)

no-sew-july-fourth-kitchen-towels (2)

Next I cut the permanent fabric tape and aligned it onto the towel.  It was a little tasking to remove the peel off sticker, but it all worked out. I found this way to be much easier than using the fusible web.  It seems to stick better too and is also much quicker! Here’s the AFTER!  This would make a great hostess gift.

You can make them in so many different patterns and colors to fit any style or holiday.

Easy Upcycled Thrift Store Tea Cups

by Dinah Wulf

alice in wonderland tea cup

I have been on a thrift store hunt for tea party decorations for a Mad Hatter Tea Party Baby Shower I have coming up! It has been SO fun, let me tell you. I have raided a few Goodwill stores in our area and have found some great deals.  I ended up making these Easy Upcycled Thrift Store Tea Cups to a few plain (but cheap) tea cups I found.

Here is all my loot (so far because I am still on the hunt) from my thrift store shopping adventures.

thrift store tea cups

Good stuff! Besides the tea pot, all the cups, saucers, and plates, and trays I found were less than $2.00. Here is the inspiration for this upcycle. I love the gold.

vintage tea cups

I found these plain white tea cups and saucers, all four pieces for $2.99 so I couldn’t pass them up.

tea party tea cups

I wanted to add gold to them to match the others.  At first I tried painting them but I would have had to do so many coats using the metallic paint I chose.  I wanted a deeper gold. I searched my craft room and found a metallic gold Sharpie!  Awe man! It went on like butta’. It was fantastic.

sharpie tea cup

Here is how I imagined using these tea cups for the Mad Hatter Tea Party I am decorating. I added a little moss and fresh cut flowers from the side of my house. These would also make cute little gifts too!

by Dinah Wulf

Spring Centerpiece with Stenciled Burlap

I had the honor of sharing this project, how to make a spring centerpiece with stenciled burlap, on the Darice Blog and today I wanted to re-share it with you here on DIY Inspired! Now that spring well underway, this fun and easy project will help brighten up your dining room table! I have a particularly LARGE dining table, so I made three.  Of course you can always just make one or two!

Materials

Darice Supply List:

  • 3 Metal Planters
  • Martha Stewart Crafts Flourish Stencil
  • Martha Stewart Crafts Stencil Brush Set
  • Licorice FolkArt Acrylic Paint
  • David Tutera Natural Burlap in Brown
  • Dual Temp Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
  • Blue Grandiose Hydrangeas
  • Dritz Fray Check

Instructions:

Step One

Measure and cut the David Tutera Natural Burlap in three six by six pieces.

crafting-with-burlap (2)

Step Two

Apply Dritz Fray Check on all four sides of each piece of burlap and allow it to dry for approximately 15 minutes.

crafting-with-burlap (1)

Step Three

Once the Dritz Fray Check is dry, center the stencil onto one burlap square. Make sure to protect your work surface. Generously apply some paint onto the tip of the stencil brush and dab off any excess paint. Apply the paint onto the stencil in an up and down motion. Remove the stencil and wash it thoroughly.  Make sure to rinse and clean the stencil in between stenciling each piece. Repeat this step for the other two burlap squares.

stenciling-on-burlap (2)

Step Four

Once your burlap pieces are stenciled and dry (approximately 15 minute dry time), hot glue them onto your metal planters.

stenciling-on-burlap (1)

Step Five

Lastly, arrange four Blue Grandiose Hydrangeas or any flower of your choice in each of your metal planters. I personally like the look of fake hydrangeas. I use them all the time! Like here and here and here!

by Dinah Wulf

Materials:

  • Top hat wood cut-outs
  • Green craft paint
  • Paint brush
  • Ribbon (green and black)
  • Scissors
  • Feathers
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Pen
  • Hot glue and glue gun
  • Craft glue
  • Wire hanger
  • Wire cutter
  • Craft beads

I found these fun top hat cut-outs at Michael’s craft stores. They were only .49 and I had a coupon for 30% off! Score! They were practically free!

mad-hatter-tea-party-hat-decoration (8)

I painted both sides green.

mad-hatter-tea-party-hat-decoration (1)

While I waited for them to dry, I cut two wire hangers in approximately two inch pieces.

mad-hatter-tea-party-hat-decoration (2)

I hot glued beads to the tips of each wire piece. Some of the beads I took from an old necklace (I save everything)! I also gathered some other embellishments for the hat. I cut out small squares out of scrapbook paper scraps and wrote the iconic Mad Hatter price of 10/6 on it.

mad-hatter-tea-party-hat-decoration (3)

I assembled each trim with glue.

mad-hatter-tea-party-hat-decoration (5)

Lastly, I hot glued it to my painted top hats. They turned out so cute!

I am going to group them in various cages, apothecary jars, and glass domes with vintage books, tea cups, glass white rabbits and mini clocks. I can’t wait to show you some of the centerpieces I’ve put together!

Clever Trash to Treasure Earth Day Crafts

by Dinah Wulf

Trash to Treasure Earth Day Crafts

Earth Day is next week already! I swear it was just Christmas. Where does the time go? In honor of this important national holiday, I thought I’d put together some fun and clever trash to treasure Earth Day Crafts.  Each craft has a step by step photo tutorial done by yours truly! I hope you try some out!

Recycled Mason Jar Lantern

I still have these macramé lanterns hanging in my back yard. They are great especially this time of year in southern California while entertaining outdoors. I light the tea lights before sunset and they stay lit for several hours.

Recycled Book Page Butterfly Wreath

Can you believe it cost me nothing to make this butterfly wreath? I made it out of branches from my backyard and a wire hanger.  I decorated it with butterflies I cut out of an old book and used beads and twine for the antennas.

Repurposed Phonebook Flowers

Does anyone use a phone book anymore? Here’s a fun craft you can do with all those pages.

Recycled Book Page Wreath Tutorial

This is another great wreath tutorial. I made this one also out of book pages. For the wreath I used Plumber’s insulation.

Hollow Book Safe How To

This makes a great gift. It’s a clever way of hiding some important things or extra money in an old hardback book.

Recycled Coffee Bean Sack Pillow

I had bought some old coffee bean sacks at a flea market and ended up making some fun outdoor pillows for my back patio.

DIY Inspired Craft Room Tour

by Dinah Wulf

diy-inspired-craft-room-tour (11)

I have shared my sanctuary, I mean my craft room before however, I have done some fun inspiring updates, upcycles, and repurposing ideas since then and I wanted to share them today. PLUS I am also a part of a fun series of Craft Room Tours hosted by The Country Chic Cottage! So, I hope you enjoy my DIY Inspired Craft Room Tour!

I am lucky enough to have dedicated a bedroom into my craft room and office. This is the view when you first walk in the door.

diy-inspired-craft-room-tour

I have a large table in the center of the room that is perfect for so many projects.  I bought the table top and bases at IKEA. It’s a little beat up from paint and glue and other things, but the great thing is that IKEA is so affordable, that I can easily just replace the top if I need to.

diy-inspired-craft-room-tour (10)

This is the base of the craft table. It is so handy for extra storage. The table has eight shelves all together. The stool pictured here are old wooden barstools that I upholstered and painted. In case you missed it, here is my upholstered bar stools post.

diy-inspired-craft-room-tour (12)

I also purchased this shelving unit from IKEA. It’s fantastic! You can customize it with drawers and doors. I used decoupage on my drawers and made recycled map drawers. This unit houses several craft storage ideas I have done including 1) stenciled thrift store craft jar, 2) repurposed spice rack, 3) thrift store pedestal trays, 4) recycled jar craft storage, 5) dollar store craft storage, 6) a magnet board filled with repurposed magnet craft storage, and lastly my 7) DIY organization ribbon board.

To the left of it I proudly display my degrees I worked so hard on!

diy-inspired-craft-room-tour (8)

To the right of it I hung this inspiring print.

diy-inspired-craft-room-tour (9)

Underneath that print is an old milk carton I used to hold wrapping paper, yard sticks, and stencils. It’s perfect because it has the metal slots that used to hold milk bottles.

diy-inspired-craft-room-tour (3)

Here is a shot of the other side of my craft room.

diy-inspired-craft-room-tour (1)

On this side, I hung some fun vintage craft books that my best friend gave me. I also just recently painted this wall from dark to light.

diy-inspired-craft-room-tour (5)

I also have a kitchen cart that I put my sewing machine, burlap, and fabric on.

diy-inspired-craft-room-tour (4)

I also hung an inspiration board I made out of a paint canvas and giant rubber bands.

diy-inspired-craft-room-tour (6)

Here’s another angle of the room. I have to admit there is another side not pictured with a desk with two monitors, my laptop, and two different printers, and my Silhouette CAMEO but it is JUST to messy to show! Ha!
