Pinterest Fail: DIY Workout T-Shirt

I know what you’re thinking because I’m thinking the same thing. How did I screw up a T-shirt? Well it happened, and unfortunately the T-shirt didn’t make it.

I saw some cute cut up T-shirt ideas on Pinterest that I wanted to try, so I bought a few shirts from the thrift store. I wanted to cut them up and wear them as workout clothes. I thought it was a solid plan until I actually tried to mimic this Pin in particular. It looked simple enough, but this post is titled Pinterest Fail, so obviously I screwed something up.

I wanted to do an inexpensive DIY project today, and so I decided to decorate a mug. I have seen different ways to decorate ceramic mugs, and one idea I really liked showed a bunch of dots outlining a letter (like this). Instead of using an initial, I wanted to do something cool like an outline of a dinosaur. A few Google searches later, I stumbled upon the perfect silhouette of a tyrannosaurus rex (I found it here).

Get Your Studs Together: DIY Earring Box

Today’s DIY project was inspired by this pin on Pinterest. My addiction of buying earrings has led me to having a collection of them, which is roughly 35 pairs, 12 stray studs and counting. I needed a better way to keep track of my earrings, so I decided to save my money (more money for the earring fund) and make my own jewelry box for my earrings.

Lately I have been in the mood to paint, so I decided to experiment with acrylic paints. I wasn’t sure what I should paint, so I took my curiosity to Pinterest for some inspiration. I stumbled upon this pin that showed a cool way to do an abstract painting by simply placing dabs of acrylic paint on a paper or canvas, and then blending in the different colors. I thought this project would be quick and easy, so I decided to try out this idea with my own added touch to it.

I was in a painting mood, but I wanted to try out something different. I was inspired by a video I saw on YouTube, so I decided I wanted to try painting with acrylic paint, but with an added twist of rubbing alcohol added on top.

Comic Book Collage: Star Wars Edition

I was perusing through Pinterest the other day and I saw a pin that featured different ideas for newspaper art. I was intrigued by a project that showed a collage made from articles of a newspaper on a canvas. I liked the idea of making a collage on a canvas, but rather than using newspaper, I wanted to use comic books.

Nailed it: String Art on a Frame

As I observed my craft box, I didn’t realize how much embroidery floss I had. I knew I wanted to incorporate this into my first DIY project for the blog and immediately I thought of string art. Take a piece of wood, add some nails, weave some colorful string through said nails to make interesting patterns and voila you have string art! It seemed easy enough, so I thought I’d give it a try.
