DIY Wooden Desk Calendar with the Cricut Maker

This post is sponsored by Cricut, but all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that keep me blogging! Ah, Secret Santa. Love it or loathe it, it’s a Christmas tradition that’s here to stay! Every year, I get roped into at least one Secret Santa group. Generally, I really enjoy it. I’ll often get someone that I know well, so it’s pretty easy to think of a gift for them. But what happens when you have…

How To Make A Wooden Pumpkin Pin Badge

Halloween falls on a Wednesday this week, which I always find a little strange… Do you dress up? Or just go about the day like normal? Who knows! I reckon it should be a public holiday, to save us of this dilemma. 😉 This year, to avoid this conundrum, I’ve DIY’ed a way to add a subtle nod to Halloween – without going all-out on a costume. I used my Cricut Maker to create this wooden pumpkin pin badge. Instant…

Try this: Easy Transparent Ghost Decorations for Halloween

Yep, it’s that time of year… Halloween decorating season! With less than a month until the scariest day of the year, it’s now (finally) acceptable to deck your space from floor to ceiling with pumpkins and kitsch-cool Halloween decorations. I used my Cricut machine to make these oh-so-simple transparent ghost decorations (although you can use a craft knife or scissors, instead). They took less than 15 minutes to make, but look great when strung together in the corner of a…

How To Easily Make Plush Toys In ANY Shape

With a baby nephew who’s only 6 months old, I have a feeling that I’ll be sewing a lot of plush toys over the next few years. I’m talking: dinosaurs, aliens, robots… I’m basically making all the cool stuff that I fear is too childish to go in my own home! 🙂 But that’s what being an uncle is all about, right? Doing the fun stuff and spoiling my nephew with handmade gifts! This is where my Cricut Maker is…

Bauhaus-inspired DIY Travel Chess Set

I’ve been wanting to make a DIY Travel Chess Set for aaaages. I think the idea first started during my trip to Berlin last year (check out my video, here), when I visited the Bauhaus Archive. I fell in love with the harsh angles, minimalist geometry and clean lines that makes Bauhaus so distinctive. In the gift shop, I spotted a really cool wooden chess set. The pieces had been reduced down to their most basic shapes, then carved into…

Make your own Easter Egg stickers!

I don’t know about you, but for me Easter means two things: chocolate and crafts! Although I also feel the same about Christmas… and Halloween… maybe I have a chocolate-eating-craft-making problem?! Anyway, one thing that sets Easter apart for me, is that it’s a lot more light-hearted than the other seasons. There’s just something about it that I feel lends itself to fun, simple and easy-going craft projects. 🙂 With this in mind, I turned to my trusty Cricut to…

How to Make DIY Fabric Flowers

Here in the UK, it’s Mother’s Day next weekend. I usually buy my mum some flowers and make her a handmade card – but this year, I’ve done something a little different… I’ve made some DIY fabric flowers! I always kinda resent buying fresh flowers, since they inevitably die after a few weeks (please tell me I’m not the only one who thinks this?!). But there’s no chance of her flowers dying this year – they’ll be fresh and colourful forever!…
