DIY Speech Bubble Dry Erase Board






This DIY came pretty much out of nowhere, I had this idea that I wanted to try and tried to figure, out of the supplies I had in home, what would work for this. I actually had some trouble with the "dry erase" part of the board, because the contact paper I had, did not let erase the marker, it absorbed the paint slightly, so you will see I had to use something on top of that for the board to work.

Materials: A big piece of cardboard | x-acto | scissors | white contact paper | clear plastic | electrical tape | two magnets | D-ring | glue



DIY Upcycled Cement Vase Using a Plastic Bottle






Cement DIYs have been super on trend for a while, but somehow I haven't got to make anything with this material before. I actually found it surprisingly easy and inexpensive, making the mold out of cardboard is free and the pack of cement, for me was less than 3€.
The only bummer is the drying time, this piece took me a whole week to dry, but I think that I might be different depending on the mixture of concrete you get.

Materials: Cement | Water | Mixing Bowl | Plastic Bottle | Iron | Cardboard box | Acrylic Paints | Paintbrush | Painters Tape | Scissors | Sanding Paper



DIY Watercolor Bookish Quote


How to make a watercolor calligraphy bookish quote


“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”
― George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons

It was my best friend Bianca's birthday this week, and honestly, I can't even remember all the presents I've made her over the years, though, most of them I know have been jewelry related. This year I went for a decorative piece, a watercolor with her favorite colors and a bookish quote that she can hang near her bookshelves.

I was not intending to make a video out of this, but I had a hard drive problem, and lost the DIY I was editing, wich sucks, so to at least make up for it and keep the creative juices going, I ended up making kind of a quick vlog of the process.
