DIY Decoupage Colour-Block Pine Cones

This post is sponsored by Bostik, but all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that keep me blogging! Autumn is just around the corner and I’m so ready for it! Sure, the recent UK heatwave has been nice… but I’m now ready for some chunky knitwear, golden-brown leaves and cosy nights in. Who’s with me?! In my eagerness for the new season, I’ve already started making new decorations for my home. It took me a couple of evenings…

Easy Tropical Garden Wall Art DIY

This post is sponsored by Bostik. The UK heatwave might be coming to an end, but it doesn’t mean the summer is over just yet! In fact, this time of year is one of my favourites – when the evenings are long and balmy and the garden is bursting with sun-ripened fruit and veg. (Speaking of which, my tomatoes have gone CRAZY lately… I’ll be eating them for weeks haha!). I’m a big fan of decorating my home for the…

Scandinavian-Style DIY Wooden Lampshade

Way back in May (feels like a lifetime ago, right?!), I went to the Handmade Fair at Ragley Hall. As part of the event, Mollie Makes invited me to take part in a craft challenge on the main stage… I was given 30 minutes to upcycle a lampshade, live on stage, against a fellow craft competitor. I went with what I know (and love) – wood, bold colours and geometric design. The result was a Scandinavian-style DIY wooden lampshade, made from…

How To Make A DIY Footstool

This project, like most DIYs before it, started out months ago with the seed of an idea. It was during my trip to Bruges. I was mooching around a décor shop, and came across a footstool. It was very cool: mid-century teak legs, with a really nice fabric covering. I was soooo close to buying it! However, I didn’t love the pattern on the fabric. It was probably an 8 out of 10. But I want 10 out of 10. What…

How To Turn A Shirt Into A Cushion Cover

Crafts and upcycling go hand-in-hand. Whether it’s reupholstering a vintage chair, transforming a charity shop find, or simply altering some ill-fitting clothes. Being able to breathe new life into an old object, transforming it into something new, is awesome. It feels like a superpower! 🙂 If you’re just getting started with upcycling, then a good first project is to turn a shirt into a cushion cover. I gave this a try last month for my brother-in-law’s birthday. He’s in the Royal Navy and had…

How to make custom plywood shelves (to fit ANY space!)

At the bottom of the stairs in my house, there’s a really awkward bit of space. It’s a small walkway, around 1 metre square, with the kitchen on one side and the living room on the other. It’s got a little bit of wall space, which immediately faces the stairs – so it’s the first thing you see when you get the the bottom. For a good few months after moving in, we were unsure what to do with this bit of…

How to make round Easter Egg cushions

  I’ve been seeing a load of circular cushions popping up on blogs and decor sites lately. Are they the new cool?? I hope so – I like them! Since I’m a bit of a cushion-making fanatic, I thought I’d try putting my own twist on the circular cushion trend. I’ve altered the shape slightly and made my own DIY Easter Egg cushion. So festive! 😛 To give my Easter Egg cushion a bit of extra dimension, I used a panel…
