Something Different!

Today I decided to take a breath from my obsessive soaping and share a few craft ideas with your that I really like from my obsessive Pintresting  instead.

I spend too much time on pintrest. Does anyone else have this problem? It’s a great place for crafters and foodies especially. Most of my pins revolve around DIYs and funny things about animals being silly. This week as I was thinking of something different I could post about for the week wrap up and I decided to peruse Pintrest for some fun crafty things, (because I really needed the excuse..

Thus I found 6 fun DIY projects that revolve around a theme of mugs! I personally have more mugs than can fit in my dish cabinet, so some of these are pretty appealing and I think I’ll be giving them a try. (As a disclaimer, the images I have used belong to the websites I have linked them to. They are not mine, my pictures don’t look that professional. I am borrowing them to promote the blog’s craft only).

I really like this pallet project. I love the pallet fad. I’m 100% on the bandwagon of repurposing pallets, and I have a stack of them waiting to be used. So this DIY mug rack looks great! And you could paint the pallet with a rub through to give it even more character. Check out this fun project here.

Why not use some of that old nail polish lying around that you haven’t used in ages? Here is an easy tutorial on decorating your old mugs with something you might have lying around the house.

How about turning them into delightful candles to make your home smell nice and create a warm, relaxing, and inviting environment? Here is a great tutorial on how to accomplish just that!

I have two solutions for you! The first is so simple, your kids can help you do it. This looks like a lot of fun to do, and really easy. Check out these coasters here.

I hope this little break from soap news was enjoyable for you. You can look forward to more of these in the future as I become more accustomed to this new area of my life, by which I mean blogging and using social media the way it’s actually intended! I’ve always been the casual observer, and this is new and exciting territory for me.
