Potpourri is a really simple way to make your home smell nicer and they’re a simple and thrifty alternative to buying chemical filled air freshners! Once you’ve discovered how to make dried orange slices you’ll be wanting to make this dried orange and cinnamon potpourri all the time. It’s super simple and you can easily add things to it to change the smell slightly.
Crafts for grown ups
Valentines Day is nearly upon us now, but don’t worry if you’re not prepared (I’m totally not) as this week I’m sharing some great heart crafts from last weeks Tuesday Tutorials to kick start you into a loved up crafty Valentines frenzy!
Around this time of year I get the urge to update my home. Or move home. When the second option isn’t possible I think the best way to make the most of what I have is to update it with a bit of paint and a bit of creativity. With that in mind I’ve been playing around with some new colours this week and came up with this cute heart chalkboard tutorial!
With the New Year now well and truly started and my bank balance looking predictably lousy I thought I would try my hand at making my own beauty products! There are some things that I believe are worth spending on *admires new fancy lipstick* but some things are so cheap and easy to make yourself that it’s really worth doing. Plus it’s more fun! With that in mind today I’m sharing an easy tutorial on how to make a sugar scrub.
At this time of year I’m always trying to think of gifts that I can make for family and hunting on Pinterest for handmade gift tutorials is one of my favourite ways to avoid the housework! All the tutorials I’ve included here would make great DIY Christmas gifts, but I also think they’d make great presents for birthdays too. There’s recipes, handmade toiletries, jewellery tutorials and handmade homeware too so hopefully something for everyone!
