DIY moon phase shirt 💕 - Creds to the rightful owner whoever that is 💖👅

Materials Needed: + Sturdy canvas type material- you could even use oilcloth. A quarter yard is more than enough. + Thread to match the zipper or the thread. ( Your choice, I matched the thread to zipper. ) + Contrasting color zipper. + Sewing machine and pins. DIRECTIONS: Step One Cut two pieces of fabric the length of your zipper. I used a 7” zipper so I cut two pieces of fabric 7” long and then cut them 8” long. Step Two Lay the zipper right side up and line up one piece of fabric to meet at the bottom edge. Step Three Pin along the bottom edge and using the zipper foot on your sewing machine, sew along that bottom edge. Step Four Now take that second piece of fabric and do the same thing to the other side of the zipper. Step Five Now, with the zipper at top, the fabric inside out, pin along the three sides and leave the zipper partially open. Step Six Sew along the edges and then flip right side out!

Drained eggs -Assorted nail polish -Stick for stirring -Paper towel -Water | filled container Instructions Pour a few drops of each nail polish color onto the water surface. Be sure to experiment with the step as the order you pour the colors results in varying marbleization. Use a stick to swirl nail polish around. Carefully submerge the drained egg into the water until completely covered, then quickly pull out. Set egg aside to dry. Scoop out nail polish from water surface between eggs, and repeat steps 1-4 for each. tip: create an egg drying rack like the one pictured by poking t-pins through a thick foam board, about 1.5-inches apart.

1- Egg flower vase. I drilled a couple of holes on top of the egg and then gently chipped away the shell to make a wider opening on top (the white egg used on this tutorial is actually of another project, but you get the idea). In order to stand the eggs, I 'glued' them onto a small mirror using candle wax. It's an old egg photography trick :) I then filled the egg with water and placed the roses in the eggs... Easy, right? 2– Eggshell planter. Spring is the perfect time for gardening, so why not take the time to make your own herb and spice garden. Your can even create fun egghead eggshell planters. All you need is an eggshell, a little soil and some seeds. It’s the ultimate eco-friendly craft. Start by taking an inch thick strip of cardstock and making it into a ring. This will hold your egg. Then take a clean eggshell and break off just the top, use a small spoon to fill the egg, almost to the top, with potting soil. If you would like you can decorate the outside of the egg with a black marker or use old dyed Easter eggs. Then sprinkle the soil with seeds and cover with another layer of soil. Water carefully so as not to drown the seeds. Keep the planter in a sunny location and within a week you should begin to see signs of life.

Empty eggshells votive candles scissors egg crate glass bowl cooking funnel egg cups {I forgot to picture the cooking funnel and egg cups} Directions: Put votive candles in the glass bowl and place in the oven at 375. While the candles are melting, clean out eggshells and place in the egg crate. Once the wax has melted, pull out the wicks and place inside the eggshells. Use the scissors to cut the wick to the correct size. Make sure the wick doesn’t fall down into the shell and that it stays upright. Use the cooking funnel to pour wax into the eggshells. Allow the wax to dry. Decorate egg shells (optional), place into egg cups, and light!

I started by cutting the burlap to the size specified by the various pillow forms my mom and I acquired. Then I made the stencils; I printed my desired words out of Microsoft Word and taped them onto contact paper, and used my box cutter to cut the letters out, making a sticky stencil: I then removed the backing and placed the contact paper onto the center of the burlap. Then, using black craft paint, I painted over the stencil. After painting, I hung the burlap up to dry, stencil still attached. After it was dry, I peeled off the contact paper and could finally see the exact design. I was a little nervous, especially after using the contact paper stencils on the groomsmen’s glasses. But it came out perfect! OK, so when I said this was DIY project, I meant it was a HALF DIY project, in the sense that all I did was cut and paint the burlap. I then took my finished pieces to my mom, who converted them into wonderful pillows for our hay bale lounge! I think they came out as perfect as they possibly could have! Have you finished any DIY projects recently? Any half DIY projects? Did they come out the way you planned? Or way better than these pillows?
