DH and I recently flew out to CA for his grandmother’s funeral, and I decided to try my hand at making some flower memorial beads with some of the flowers at the service. If they are successful (my first attempts with flowers from our trip to Savannah were rather ugly, but I still have hope) I intend to make a rosary bracelet for his mother.
I really need to get me some of these! Maybe my brown thumb would get a little greener…
I finally sat down this weekend and made myself a tiny little photo light box! Check out my blog for more photos and to see how it all came together. Or how it’s almost all together.
I really need to sit down and make one of these. Like, today.
First you’re going to want to gently carve your orange. Try to keep the top part in tact so your candle can have a hat. We were pretty unsuccessful at that part. The most important thing is to keep the long stem in the middle intact (the wick). Pour your choice of oil into the orange. We tried both olive and canola oil. Canola oil smells better.Estimated burn time is about one hour. But if your candle lacks a hat its more around 30 minutes. Also, this will not make your house smell like oranges, but it is very pleasing to look at and gives you the ability to use something twice that you would normally have thrown away!(Source.)

DIY Backlit Bookshelf. This project uses a dremel and is pretty complicated but I love how it looks.Tutorial at Pretty Handy Girl here. *What I would do: paint the back and shelves in a midnight blue and use glow-in-the-dark paint.
