DIY: Chair Seat Makeover

Great fix for a chair with a broken cane or wicker seat - using strips of scrap fabric, weave to create a seat and tie knots at the end! Love this, because not everyone knows how to cane, but we all can weave & tie knots:)

This is such a pretty, clever idea! I love it! Source

DIY Confetti Bowl


We came across this great DIY project at VJULIET. It's easy and fun to make with your kids. You will need: confetti, one balloon, Mod Podge, a sponge and a small vase. 


Inflate your balloon, then insert it on to the vase so it's sturdier to work with. Add Mod Podge to the top half of the balloon with a sponge, then sprinkle confetti all over, let it dry and add another coat of glue and confetti, you will need to add several coats until you achieve a thick coat. Let it dry for 8-10 hours. See more information at VJULIET
