Transform tin cans into silly, changeable Alien Robots with a few odds and ends and some magnets.
Today I’m sharing a link to an informative article on the ultimate DIY: how to roast your own coffee beans at home. (It’s easier than you may think!) This experiment was conducted by my own husband, Michael Purdy, so I can testify as to the results: great coffee. Head over to his site to get the full scoop.
Make some quick and easy shakers for music time (or general noisemaking) using cardboard tubes, paper plates, duct tape, and of course, dried beans!
Over the weekend I tried something I’d been wanting to do for a while. I transfered an image using Citra Solv orange cleaner onto wood. A super easy process yielded interesting results.
I made a simple little shower curtain last week using a canvas dropcloth and some very basic sewing skills.
Brightly colored dots (these are cut out from left over paint chips) add a pop of color to the back of wooden clothespins and make simple and fun magnets. This project is super easy and inexpensive.
Have a little amusement by making a classic Thaumatrope toy. Downloadable template for this design included.
Dress up an older coat by making this little felt ribbon and pairing it with a vintage brooch. No sewing required!
