{DIY Projects In The Queue}

So I've created a full itinerary for my sister's birthday this weekend, and on amongst lots of shopping, eating, and drinking, we are going to take most of the day on Sunday to do a little crafting and DIY projects. Below are a few ideas that we've come up with so far:
DIY Weekend Projects
1. I've been wanting to make this scarf for a while now. I think all I need is some fabric, the right quote, and a little fabric paint. If it turns out - who knows, they may be ending up in the shop!

2. I'm getting a bunch of rope from Restoration Hardwarde (the local store here is closing and lucky me, I have a friend that works there. They are literally getting rid of everything in the store and so far I've gotten tons of rug samples, leather squares, fabric swatches, and loads of ribbon). I love how they style the rope in their store, so I'm going to give it a try this weekend...

3. I love this painting and it seems all you need is a white canvas and some gold leaf - both of which I have...fingers are crossed that they turn out how we want them to...

4. My sister has a pair of black boots, and I have a pair of black flats that we want to adhere studs to...

Can't wait for the crafting to begin! Are there any projects that you have put off for a while now? Share them with me as we're looking for more ideas for this weekend!


  1. I can't wait to see how the scarf comes out! That is all over Pinterest and I've been intrigued. I'm looking forward to the final product(s)!

  2. We're excited about the scarves as well - I really hope they turn out how we have them envisioned!!! And Hope - # 3 is a definite!

  3. Please let me know how the shoes + studs go. I have been in search for a pair of studded wedges that I have been in love with for almost a year but can't find. I would love a DIY project to create my perfect pair! Goos luck with your projects!
