DIY Safety Pin Star Sweatshirt

What would the crafting world be without safety pins? I know I’d be pretty lost without them. They’ve saved the day when I’ve tried (over and over again) to get the perfect fit on a piece of DIY clothing. You know how it goes. So when I spotted a $168 Free People star studded pullover, …

DIY: Beaded Peace Wreath

Year after year, the holiday season does an excellent job at creeping up on everyone. It seems to go from 0 to 100 in just a few days. This is probably why stores (and crafters) start rolling out the holiday projects well before Halloween. No one ever seems to be prepared. In celebration of the …

DIY Bottle Cap Burger Ornaments

No Christmas tree of mine is safe from food ornaments. From DIY pie garlands to donut mirrors, I’m all about combining food and crafts. It gives me a chance to take a break from my usual style of edgier, darker crafts (skull ornaments, anyone?) for something a little more light-hearted.
