Pinterest DIY: Office/Vanity Decor
It all started with Pinterest...
This weekend, pretty much my whole Saturday morning was dedicated to trying out new make-up tricks and getting lost in the endless road of Pinterest. Seriously... I go there for one thing and end up spending hours upon hours pinning a gazillion photos to my secret board of "crap that I want to try" and usually the Pinterest binge ends with me being mentally exhausted and shutting my phone off. That often means - I'm not doing ANY of the things that I pinned anytime soon. Hey... remember that this is a no judgement zone.
Well, I decided to surprise myself and try out three DIY projects that I found for my new office area in the house. The nakedness of the room was my motivation to actually do something to brighten the place up a bit. Out of a list of maybe 30 projects, I tried three of the less painful ones. Although these DIYs are not my original ideas, I wanted to show you that not only can an amateur like myself do them, but I wanted you to see how amazingly cute they turned out.
DIY Marbled Jewelry Tray by Brit+Co
- Colorful Sculpey Clay
- White Sculpey Clay
- Gold Paint Marker
- Craft Knife
- Take an even piece of the colored clay and the white clay and twist them together.
- Roll it together to create the marble effect. (Try not to over roll causing too much blending).
- Roll into a perfect ball.
- Flatten out into flat circle. Optional: You can create a matching white circle to place at the bottom of the marbled circle.
- Pinch up the sides to create a tray shape. This does not have to be perfect.
- Put in the oven on 275 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
- Once the clay is cool, use the paint marker to paint the edges gold.
This was actually inspired by a few projects, but not one in particular. Glitter letters & symbols are definitely a great look anywhere for decor. I want something that was not completely glitter, but just a little sparkle to add the glam touch.
- Wooden letter or symbol
- Spray Paint (Color of your choice)
- Loose glitter
- Mod Podge
- Spray paint the wooden letter/symbol
- Sprinkle the glitter on while the paint is still wet
- Allow it to dry and coat with Mod Podge to secure the glitter
This is just another fun way to create a frame that is out of your ordinary rectangular shape. If I were to it again, which I plan to, I would definitely use another color.
- Craft Sticks (36)
- Spray Paint
- Glitter (Optional)
- E6000 glue or wood glue
- Lay the craft sticks flat and connect forming a hexagon shape.
- Glue sticks together.
- Layer six times (or more).
- Spray paint and add glitter.
I hope this inspired you to get crafty!
Until next time...
