Rough Work: Stained Glass Window

Monday this week wasn’t a terribly productive day for me. London seems to like gifting me flues every time I go there, so monday was spent mostly wrapped up in a blanket with hot chocolate and soup. I absolutely cannot stand sitting down and doing nothing so I figured I’d do a bit of rough… Read More…

DIY: Steampunk Goggles

I was going to do a tutorial for this but in the end I decided there wasn’t really a point since there was no real plan to this, just sticking cogs, wires and more cogs onto the side of a pair of glasses. I got the the wires, screws and cogs from here, but if… Read More…

DIY: Alien Crown

Would you believe me if I said it’s really, really easy to make this one? No seriously it is! On a side note I think I need to start thinking of things you can’t use a glue gun for, it’s like the duct tape of the craft world. As usual I’m using my trusty glue… Read More…

DIY: Soap Bottle

I wish I could claim this was an idea I came up with, but Pintrest beat me to it (which incedently, if you haven’t been on it…ooooooh you have no idea what you’re missing!). The fitness and fashion section have me addicted more than I should really admit to. In general my rule is if… Read More…

Klaire’s Wardrobe: DIY Vintage Kimono

A few months ago I’d been browsing e-bay and came across this beautiful kimono-style shawl, the only thing is it was around £60, and as much as I loved it I was not about to pay £60 for it. It was essentially just two pashminas sewn together, so I found two which I liked and… Read More…

I shaved my head

So….I finally did it! We raised the £5,000 so as promised I have shaved my head and donated the useable part of my hair to Wigs for Kids. BTW anyone wanting to know how you can donate hair can see a video by Wigs for Kids here. The day after I woke up and my brain felt cold…. Read More…

It’s actually so easy! What you’ll need:  Wire Pliers Lace Needle and thread Scissors Hot Glue Gun Black Feathers Headband Hope… Read More…

DIY: Tea Lights Tray

I was going to make this into a DIY tutorial for Klairedelysdotcom but the actual idea and process of this is so simple it made a lot more sense to just have it as a blog post. Best way to hide scratches? Make more of them! When I first bought this tray from a little… Read More…

DIY: Horns

Before I get the inevitable question: “erm…why would anyone want horns” in my defence I’d like to say that there are actually a lot of times you can wear horns (other than late at night in a dark corner to scare a family member). I will be using these for one of the Seven Deadly… Read More…

DIY: Fire Masquerade

Thought it’s quite similar to my Ice Queen mask there are a few differences to this mask that make it look quite different, also if you use different cloours (let’s say green?) you could make masquerade masks for several different elements, fire, water, earth exc. using exactly the same techniques. What I used: Glue Gun… Read More…
