Last Minute Halloween Costume Idea DIY: Animal Headbands

Tomorrow is finally Halloween! While Husband and I will be Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass later on in the evening at the annual Halloween party we go to, we need something fun for when the kids come trick-or-treating earlier in the evening. I have a cute vampire bat face dress I got on Etsy a few years ago that I’ll pair with a little witch’s hat I have and some tights. Our storage unit has a cowboy hat and pirate hat that Husband could have worn, but we haven’t had the chance to get over there yet, so he has nothing fun at the ready. But don’t worry, I’ve fixed that issue in 5 minutes! Continue reading Last Minute Halloween Costume Idea DIY

Project: Origami Easy Traditional Origami Balloon

Hey everyone! Husband here with another Origami project for you to try your hand at! Even though Katie and I are in the midst of moving, I still managed to create something I think you’ll really enjoy.

They’re great to toss around, cats love them and everyone will totally think you’re the COOLEST. Just kidding, I wasn’t cool at all 🙁

That said, I’ll still show you how to make one… Onwards! Continue reading Origami with The Husband: Easy Traditional Origami Balloon

Project: DIY Mini Sketch Book (or Notebook!)

A few weeks back, I found myself in one of my greatest inspiration stores. Nope, not the fabric store, or the craft store, or even the art store- Home Depot! Seriously, I love it there. We were visiting my Dad for the weekend and painting my childhood bedroom a sunny shade of pale golden yellow. While browsing the paint aisles, I decided to grab a few different paint chip swatches, knowing when I had the time I would be able to find a fun little project to use them for. Well, now is the time! Continue reading DIY Mini Sketch Book

How To Turn Your T-Shirt In To A Pillow

Project: How To Turn Your T-Shirt In To A Pillow

The other day, I caught the Husband trying to throw out an old t-shirt of his. It got a small bleach stain on it which is pretty much the end of an article of clothing. Still, I rescued it from garbage can heaven and gave it two new reasons to live! Half the shirt I used to make t-shirt yarn, while the other half was used to make a pillow! My sister also loves the same silly anime things that Husband does (sorry, I just don’t see the appeal!), so I knew she’d love this pillow for her bed. It was very easy and I’m thinking of making a few pillows for my bed now too, using shrunken Woot tees and old band shirts! Continue reading How To Turn Your T-Shirt In To A Pillow
