Candy Cane Reindeer Christmas Ornaments | #25DaysofOrnaments | Christmas Project 2017

Nothing shouts Christmas like candy canes. According to Gourmet Gift Baskets, out of the 1.76 billion candy canes produced each year, 90% are sold between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Not just that, candy canes are the topmost non-chocolate candy being sold during this festive season. I […]

The best time to collect pine cones is in autumn. Especially if you want to collect good-sized nicely-opened ones. And I missed collecting them at that time. So when I decided to make these pom pom pine cones Christmas ornaments, I could only think of […]

Tea Light Snowman Christmas Ornament | #25DaysofOrnaments | Christmas Project 2017

I recently discovered the world of tea light crafts that I was simply oblivious to till now. Once I searched online and got some ideas, I realized that the possibilities to use them in various craft projects are endless.

So I had to incorporate at least one tea light ornament in my #25DaysofOrnaments Christmas Project 2017. And hence the Tea Light Snowman Christmas Ornament.

Tea Light Snowman Christmas Ornament

This one is fairly simple and requires just a few craft essentials – pipe cleaners, mini pompom balls, permanent markers, hot glue gun and an electric tea light.

And then it is as easy as just bringing everything together. Here’s the video tutorial to guide you through each step –

I loved watching Chip and Dale as a kid. It was hilarious, like literally rolling on the floor laughing. I was amused by the duo of oh-so-very clever Chip and such-a-silly-sausage Dale; I loved their never-ending hide and seek showdown with Donald Duck, and was […]

So this is day 2 of my #25DaysofOrnaments project. I am running a little late, Saturday chores and inertia kept me occupied. We went to Tesco for our weekly grocery shopping, and with the red and white decorations and holiday songs playing on loop, it is indeed beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Even our borough’s High Street has its Christmas market going on.

The craft of the day is Yarn Winter Hat Christmas Ornament. Needless to say, this one is easy as well. I love doing easy craft especially because then I can very well enjoy it with LittleB. Instead of just ‘my own thing,’ easy craft makes it ‘our mother-daughter thing.’

It is that time of the year again, can you feel it? The temperature is staying in single digits, the craving for hot drinks is constant and I can no longer afford to step out of the house without a winter cap (even if it […]

Phone Case DIY – Rainbow and Sequins

Phone Case DIY – Rainbow and Sequins

Lately I have realized that I take up a craft project only when I don’t have anything else exciting going on. So am I really passionate about craft or am I into it just for passing time?

All I know is that craft gives me a push when I feel dull and weary (which happens way too often with me!). It tames my toddler like nothing else. When Little B indulges in a craft activity, she is on her best behavior – absolutely obedient and disciplined. Win-win situation for me the mother.

On one such tiring day, I thought why am I having a transparent phone case? I should do something about it. Little B loves rainbows and I love sequins, so this is what we both agreed on.

Rainbow and Sequins Phone Case DIY

You Would Need

1 transparent/clear phone case

Assorted colorful sequins (colors from rainbow family)

Clear glue (something which is strong enough for such a project)

Paper and pencil

How to Go About It

Outline your phone case on a sheet of paper.

On this outline that you have drawn, draw a rainbow. You can either draw curved lines for the rainbow (as I have) or straight stripes.

Now place the phone case properly on the outline and rainbow that you have drawn.

As we will avoid putting any mark on the phone case, this drawing is going to us a clear idea of where to stick what.

I have just drew 5 stripes for rainbow colors as I just had sequins in 5 colors. You can of course increase or decrease the number of stripes depending on what you have.

Start sticking the sequins in their proper places.

DIY iPhone Rainbow Case

You can either apply glue to one entire strip at a time and stick sequins on it. Or you can apply glue to individual sequins and stick them up individually.

Within 5 minutes, I had this.

 Let the phone case dry completely for 4-5 hours. After that tap of any lose sequins and reapply glue or sequins if needed.

I should let you know that I bought a cheap phone case so that I won’t waste money in case my project didn’t go as I planned.

DIY Wall Mural – Paradise Falls (Up movie)

DIY Wall Mural – Paradise Falls (Up movie)

Pixar movies have always inspired me and Up is no different. Since I have seen the movie, I have started believing in the motto ‘Adventure is out there.’ The idea to grow old with Mr B and then live right next to a mighty gorgeous waterfall! I would give up anything to make this dream come true!

In the movie, Ellie draws an amazing painting of this dream on the wall of her living room. I have longed for that very same painting in my house ever since. But it took me years to convince myself that I CAN paint the same painting in my house.
