Find out how:
Hanging flower string lights
String lights have always been a go-to choice for those who want to brighten up their area while evoking a sense of a wide, spanning space. Flower string lights, in particular, have always been a favorite due to the ease in creating them and the uplifting effect they have. In order to make them, you will need:
- Cupcake liners (different colors or sizes recommended)
- A pair of scissors
- String lights/Christmas lights
Get the cupcake liners then cut out basic flower shapes out of them. To make the leaves, fold a small liner in half twice then, with the folded point at the bottom, cut out a leaf shape. To make the flowers, get a small liner, fold it in half three times, then cut around the top. You can do the same with a larger liner except that you have to fold it in half four times before cutting. Cut a small x on the center of each cutout before layering each over a light bulb to make a flower.
Mason jar displays
Mason jars are common enough in that almost every household will have a couple of them lying around. Aside from being great food and beverage containers, they also make great mini terrariums! To make some, you will need:
- Mason jars (any size)
- Small rocks or pebbles
- Activated charcoal
- Plant sprouts
To begin, wash out your jar with warm water, then being layering the materials carefully. The small rocks go in first; 2 inches is the recommended depth for proper soil drainage. The activated charcoal then goes on top of that; ½ inch is enough. The soil is the topmost layer; a generous sprinkle should do it.
After that, it’s all a matter of transferring your sprout and then placing it in a well-lit spot to grow. Of course, don’t forget to water it every now and then!
If you want something simpler, you can go for painted vases instead. For this, you will need:
- Mason jars
- Acrylic paint
The process is simple: pour a reasonable amount of paint into the mason jar and slowly coat the insides by moving the jar around until every little bit is covered. After doing so, place the coated jar nose down on some newspaper or cloth for the excess paint to drip out.
(Monogram) Letter Art
Monogram letters have been making a comeback as pretty and customizable decorations recently. They appear almost everywhere: towels, frames wallpapers are their most common applications. To create them yourself, you will need:
- Sturdy cardboard/Illustration board
- A rules
- Faux decorations and embellishments
- Sanding paper
The steps are straightforward enough. Begin by drawing or tracing a large letter on your board, using your ruler as a guide to make sure that your lines are straight. After that, cut it out with long, precise cuts (to minimize feathered edges). Sand the edges a bit to ensure they are smooth, and then decorate it as you see fit. For some, simple paint does the job. Others also use faux decors such as plastic flowers, differently colored bits of yarn, or even sequins to fill it in.
