DIY TWIGGY PLACECARDS.

Diy Twiggy Placecards

Argh! How cute are these Diy Twiggy Party Placecards from Oh Happy Day?

I love the bright and colourful threads. They're made using the Crayola Thread Wrapper. You feed the twig or whatever you want wrapped into one end of the machine and it comes out the other covered in your chosen thread. You can find the full tutorial here with links to the video how-to's.

I love the idea of wrapping some of those chunky twig pencils in some metallic thread or even a pair of headphones like in this tutorial for Diy Embroidered Headphones.

What would you wrap in brightly coloured thread?

MAKE THESE: DIY GOLD TRIMMED DRY ERASE BOARDS.

Have you seen these dry erase tiles from Command?

I'm always looking for more ways to be organised and I think these tiles might be exactly what I've been looking for. They're made by the same people who make those sticky wall hooks that don't damage your wall and they work in exactly the same way. Each tile even has a built-in level so you know when you're hanging it straight.

The gold edged dry erase boards in the image above are by Ashley from Sugar & Cloth. You can find the full tutorial here. I think one of these would be perfect above my desk.

Last night while I was browsing Pinterest I stumbled across this brilliant tutorial for typography confetti from A Subtle Revelry. Such a simple yet effective idea and perfect for those summer parties or weddings.

I do love confetti even though it can get really messy. I read a great tip in the comments section of this blog post for dealing with the clean up. A sticky lint roller! Genius.

Want to make your own diy alphabet confetti? All you need is some brightly coloured double-sided paper and these Martha Stewart Alpha Punches. Easy, right?
