Instead of using a Silhouette Machine, you can just buy peel and stick letters.
Roundup of 18 Favorite DIY Rough Crystal Tutorials from True Blue Me & You.
I love posting rough or raw crystal tutorials because most of the DIYs are easy to make and look expensive. You can find “rough crystals” at toy stores (in the science section), museum shops, craft stores and online.
*Links have been checked and all work… as of today. Lots of DIY blogs that posted a few years ago have just gone – along with their archives.
DIY Chanel and Pamela Love Crystal Cuff from Dream, Create here.
DIY Rough Crystal Necklace Inspired by Chanel from Because I’m Addicted here.
DIY Chunky Crystal Bead Leather Bracelet from Lebenslustiger here. No clasp needed, because beads are strung on elastic.
DIY Free People Inspired $12 Wrapped Rough Crystal Bracelet from Chic Steals.
Wire Wrapped Rough Crystal Rings from Passions for Fashion. No tutorial, but if you read my blog I have posted hundreds of DIY wire wrapping tutorials.
What would make a good Mother’s Day gift? THIS. It’s really simple – you print out whatever image you want on fabric transfer paper (tee shirt transfer paper – I like Avery) and iron it on cotton fabric – from totes to tee shirts. The ones I did on tee shirts lasted dozens of washes and held their color (and did not get weird and crackly).
I also made a wedding shower gift for my best friend using scanned photos and memorabilia that were special to her, and assembled them into a very simple quilt.
You can use transfer paper to make pillows of your pets, friends’ pets, mother’s pets etc… This is also something my mother would actually like to receive on Mother’s Day. Find the DIY here from The Band Wife here.
