Thranduil Crown DIY

And it’s here! Sorry for the delay, believe it or not this is very easy to make, time consuming, but easy. All you need is wire, a glue gun (no surprises there), two cans of spray paint and a few pine branches. I know, I know…I used a glue gun…again! I hope you like it,…

DIY: Jewellery Tree

Starting on a side note I really, really hate the word jewellery. It’s one of those words I can never spell right till I type it out in google to check and then what do you know, I get it right! Absolutely infuriating! I’ve wanted to have one of these for next to the kitchen sink…

DIY: Cherry Blossom Headband

Can’t take the credit for this one, wish I could say I came up with the absolutely genius idea, but I saw the original idea on Pinterest. I was going to just wait till a few more flowers had blossomed outside and make a real cherry blossom crown, but I think I’ve done one too…

DIY: Aztec Earrings

For Christmas my sister got me these beautiful earring and as much as I love them, I thought I would add a little colour to them. I wasn’t sure wether to take coloured thread and wrap it around the bands, but in the end I stuck to using nail varnish. I’ve pretty much switched to…

DIY: Candle Crown

No, the candles are not really on fire, my hair has only just started growing enough, I don’t intend to start burning it off. Of course I will be using my trusty glue gun, and about two packets of glue sticks but hey, it’s very quick and easy to do. If you don’t have a…
