Handscripted Lamp & Other Crafty DIY Features

Furniture Ideas

Lots of entries of good projects, but some are significantly better than others. Of those, I am featuring my three favorites of the last two weeks of linky parties:

1. DIY French Script Lamp Shade

By Jeannine, who writes at The Concrete Cottage.

DIY-French-script-lamp-shadeThis lampshade is my ultimate-favorite feature today.

It was made with a huge collection of French Script fonts and photos, which were tacked to the inside, after which she traced the whole thing with … a sharpie! Got to love sharpies. Took 3 hrs. or so, and I’d say, well worth it! It’s a beautiful lampshade and I want one, eh… make that a couple. For my bedroom (the Feng Shui ‘travel’ corner of the house).

2. DIY Cloche

By Tonya, from Chirping with Excitement.


Tonya also did a fabulous job and created a wonderful cloche, from scratch. Wow.

She used Sculpey (oven-baked clay) and punched in craft jewels & jewelry supplies. After baking, she sprayed the whole thing silver and added the rhinestones with superglue.

Ta-da!!! That’s it in a nutshell. More details on her blog, of course.

3. Healthy Homemade Beauty Products ~ she featured on TV!

By Potholes and PantyhoseRebekah, who writes at Potholes & Pantyhose. who is one heck of a creative gal, making all sorts of things.

Anyhow, this week she shared how she came up with a whole slew of homemade beauty products that were just featured on TV.

You’ll find a ton of make-up/beauty recipes here, and I’m going to try at least one and tell you about it.  The seven simple ingredients: organic rolled oats, apple cider vinegar, extra-virgin olive oil, Aloe Vera gel (drinkable kind), vegetable glycerin, Jojoba oil and sweet almond oil.
