Crafts and bits I have created after being inspired by other pins

A little idea for bookmarks, using giant paper clips, beads which I put on using wire and some ribbon. As a personal touch I added initials on beads and tied them to the top. Displayed on photocopied book passages glued to card because I didn't have the heart to rip real book pages out! Book Passage, Book Marks, Paper Clip, Initials, Ribbon, Wire, Touch, Beads, Crafts

Bought a plain black fascinator for a wedding, but my dress is blue! So I bought some blue craft feathers and blue fabric flowers (with wire stems) from local shops, cut the feathers into diamond shapes and stuck them to the base underneath.

Nail polish flowers using craft wire (about £2) from paper chase and some polish I had kicking about, made tonnes all different colours. Sometimes the polish bursts or cracks, but it's easily fixed just pop a bit more polish on and let it dry again! They are delicate but quick to make and easy to stick on hair clips or wrap the wire with 1single flower around a ring for unique jewellery.

Jazzed up some cheap tumblers with stickers and spray paint. Peeled the stickers off, added a layer of spray laquer then glued on sequins to hide any imperfections. Added a tea light and voila a low cost present to give :) Tumblers, Tea Lights, Im Not Perfect, Candle Holders, Presents, Sequins, Candles, Stickers, Crafts

Hand knitted scarf. I had a few practices before I moved onto the nice wool. I watched a youtube video which helped me understand the technique, once I got the hang of it I was well away :) Hand Knit Scarf, Hand Knitting, Wool, Nice, Youtube, Crafts, Manualidades, Handmade Crafts, Nice France

Made my own corkboard by hot gluing some corks to an old photo frame. Then I stuck on some magnetic tape to the back so I can put it on the fridge. All it cost me was the price of a glue gun as I didnt own one before! Magnetic Tape, Corks, Glue Gun, Old Photos, Magnets, Frame, Crafts, Birds, Bottle

I've been at the wood printing again! This time on tiny little craft spoons from sainsburies craft section. They take the ink quite well! These make cute little markers for a windowsill herb garden :) another hand made gift from me, for my mother. Window Sill, Herb Garden, Spoons, Wood Print, Markers, Printing, Herbs, Ink, Tableware

Hand stitched napkins to go in my grandmother's (hand decorated) napkin holder, just some ordinary korbond embroidering thread, a needle and a little inspiration!

My attempt at the bottle cap pin cushion ring. It's surprisingly simple to make, it took a fair amount of time but most of that was getting the holes in the bottle cap. I used garden twist wire for the ring and some old fabric and bit of a kitchen sponge for the pin cushion. It's actually very useful, I feel lost sewing without it now!

Wood ink transfers - so I tried some of the pins I've seen on here for wood printing with wax paper. I printed my image (flip it first or it'll be mirror image!) onto ordinary grease proof paper because I didn't have wax paper to hand - after working out which side goes into the printer face up of course, then smoothed it onto slightly damp (unvarnished) wood with a plastic card. It came out a little light and smudgy, so I sprayed with hairspray, not too much as it makes it bleed, et voila… Ink Transfer, Plastic Card, Wax Paper, Hairspray, Mirror Image, Grease, Wood Print, My Images, Printer

Another example of wood printing, I filed the wood a bit as the ink doesn't stick to varnished wood, and customised them with Dr who "gallifreyan" patterns. A quick spray with hairspray helps stop it smudging and all done :) Hairspray, Wood Print, Smudging, Printing, Ink, Patterns, Block Prints, Hair Sprays, India Ink
