This bold and original necklace is so easy to make out of pebbles from the beach, during a hike or just picked up from your garden. All you need to make it is some pebbles, a small piece of fabric, and some very basic sewing skills.
With just some lace and an old frame you can make a beautiful earring holder to organise and display an earring collection. You can even decorate the frame for an extra personalised touch.
Also using lace, you can decorate old porcelaine plates, tea cups or bowls using spray paint, and the lace as a stencil. You can use these pieces to make original plant pots, cake stands or jewellery holders.
These brooches are really easy to make with just two squashed nespresso capsules. But if you are feeling more adventurous, you can make any type of jewellery in almost any shape or colour by using this technique to make nespresso capsule jewellery with felt.
I created these amazing rainbow coloured shoes by decorating canvas shoes with sharpies and alcohol. All you need to do is colour in your plain white shoes with alcohol based markers, and then add rubbing alcohol to blend the colours. You can use the same technique to decorate t-shirts, canvas bags or other clothes and accessories.
These roses can be used to decorate frames, boxes, jewellery and more. Make them really easily from an old egg carton.
