Make : These Things

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

One thing I really enjoy about blogging is it motivates my diy projects. I often come up with various ideas, or find inspirations for things I want to try, but being able to turn my efforts into a blog post makes it a lot more fun. Also being a crafter of sorts by trade it feels good to work with other materials than I normally do, and it can actually help get my creativity flowing in general. But I have been so busy lately I haven't been able to do or share any diy projects (insert my sad little face here). So I have rounded up a few crafty diy's for you all here, these are things I am hoping to attempt when I have a little more free time. I think that first one, with the pom pom embellished blanket is my favorite because I am a lover and advocate of simple projects that have a dramatic impact. If you want to try it I do have a pom pom tutorial you can find here. I know you want a pom pom blanket just as much as I do.

** Being as I won't be here tomorrow I just want to give a little shout-out today to my sister for her birthday on Thursday. Happy Birfday Hannah. I love you!! xo


  1. That pom blanket is gorgeous. What I really want is a pouf. That someone else makes. That's not exorbitantly expensive. Ahem.

    1. Samesies. I want this one:

  2. I wish I had more time for diy projects. Happy Birthday to your sister!

  3. That pom blanket has "FITZ, CHEW ON THIS!" written alll over it. Which is a shame because it's adorable! And happy birthday to your sister! I bet she's a delight, just like you. xo

  4. Such cute creative little things! Love that pouf! And of course I want poms poms on my bed!

  5. I grew up having a pom blanket its so cute

    Delightful Ideas

  6. The pom pom blanket has been on my crafty list for ages (in fact so have pom pom cushions, curtains and tea towels - I might just pom pom the whole house while I am at it). But I haven't had time to do anything crafty in ages, I am saving these up for a rainy day!

  7. Happy birthday Christine's sister!

    And I am the poster child for 'this is what your pinterest craft really comes out looking like' which equates to an utter failure :)

  8. Love this DIY roundup...Yep, especially the pompom blanket. It's reminding me that I wanted to add pompoms to the sides of my daughter's curtains - So simple, yet high impact (as you note). Well, now that I do have a bit more free time on my hands (ahem), there's no excuse. ;)
    PS~Sending your sister birthday wishes.

  9. One of the reasons I began blogging was because I loved crafting and following DIYs. It was a way for me to stop from a normal routine and take a minute to appreciate the small moments and do something with my hands. I think it's so grounding! I do hope that you attempt that pom pom blanket - it is so adorable and I would love to make that in white for a guest bedroom!

  10. Giant pom poms on a bedspread?! Brilliant.
    And belated birthday wishes to your sister.
