We are packing down our apartment these days and on Saturday we’ll take over our new old semi-detached house. We are so looking forward to finally move into something bigger! And we’ll get a porch with sun from mid-day until late evening. Yeah, it’s gonna be great. One thing I constantly get reminded about during packing is the great amount of books we own. I love browsing for books at thrift stores, and yup, I do sometimes come home with books that does not deserve a place in the shelf. They’ll be perfect for something else though, here are 6 ways to reuse books:
What to do with all the paper towel rolls that’s piling up? Make a didgeridoo of course! 6 paper towel rolls and some duct tape and of course the most difficult part – learn how to play…
Hi guys! I haven’t been crafting much these last months. Being a father to a 4.5 months old boy takes up pretty much all my time. It is exhausting but at the same time fantastic – ain’t nothing better than to come home from work and meet the little baby smiling at you! Albert got baptised last sunday. That gave me a push to make table name flags for the party: Marshmallow table name flags – mmmmmm
Supplies: BBQ wooden sticks, thick paper in the color of your choice, marshmallows, a pair of scissors, a pair of garden scissors, a glue stick and a marker. First I cut out rectangles from the paper, approximately 3 in x 1.4 in. I used the garden scissor to shorten the BBQ sticks, I made them 5 in long. Then I applied glue onto the paper and the top of the “pole” and pressed the paper around the stick and held for 10 seconds. I made all of them this way and let the glue dry before I wrote the names on the flags.
Now, getting the flags to stand is easier said than done – many of them marshmallows are skewed and will not stand, so be sure to have at least a couple of bags to choose from.
