I have been in the process of redecorating my room and one thing I always had my eyes on was one of these plant stands I saw on West Elm. I love how it can transform any plant you put on it to have a modern minimal vibe, but for something that looks so simple, it was over $100. So, of course, I had to DIY it and you can watch how I created mine below! :)
It's almost valentines day! Or you know ... single awareness day for some people (me), but here is a cute idea you can make for your special someone or your friend! Couple hoodies!

DIY Couple Hoodie INSTRUCTIONS
Pick your numbers and words - they can be your anniversary month and date, the year you started dating, the year both of you were born, or whatever is meaningful to you. The words can be your names, or king and queen like I’m going to do here, or an inside joke you guys have. Milk and cookie, peanut butter and jelly, best friend, etc…
Pick your numbers and words - they can be your anniversary month and date, the year you started dating, the year both of you were born, or whatever is meaningful to you. The words can be your names, or king and queen like I’m going to do here, or an inside joke you guys have. Milk and cookie, peanut butter and jelly, best friend, etc…Take a piece of A4 paper and use it as a guide to see how big you want the font to be. Fold the paper to make it the general size of the letters and numbers.
For the Font, you can download the font I used which is called all star from www.dafont.com or you can see go to this link here, for other varsity font styles that’ll also look great. Any font will work, but you want to pick a font with a distinct silhouette.
Position your letters and numbers on a word doc according to what you measured in step 2.
Once you feel like you got a general size, print it out and just roughly cut it out and see how it looks on the sweater. Adjust the lettering size and keep printing different versions till your happy. I used for a Size M hoodie, "King" in size 300 and the numbers in size 900. For a size S hoodie, "Queen" in size 275, and the numbers in size 800. You might use a different size depending on how many letters in your word.
Background – Find a background you like for both. You can have the same for both or different backgrounds for each shirt. I used an army print for the guy and a floral print for the girl.
Now use the letters and numbers you printed off as a stencil to outline on top of the transfer paper and cut them out.
Iron it on to your transfer papers instructions and voila!

I'd love to see your creations!

I been obsessed with anything marble printed recently from notebooks to clothe and I seen this marble macbook decal on instagram a lot recently, but the store where you can purchase it at cost $25 USD plus $10 shipping which to me is way too much for a laptop skin that I might ruin(plus the currency conversion is so bad right now). So I did some research on pinterest and saw that you can do it yourself with contact paper so I tried it and it turned out great! I'm soooooo in love with it!
Here's how you can do it too!
Cut out the contact paper to a little bit bigger than your laptop
I got my contact paper on Amazon: link
Clean the surface, preferably with a microfiber cloth.
Stick on one length of the contact paper
Stick on the rest slowly while pushing out the air bubbles with a ruler
Cut off the excess contact paper with an x-acto knife, and using the edge of your laptop as a guide
Put your hand under the screen to activate the apple logo light
Cut out the logo carefully

Recently I bought one of those 12 pack Starbucks frappuccino drinks and after I finished I was left with quite a few of the glass bottles hanging around. Their nice and sturdy so it seemed like a waste to throw it away. So I decided to make some interior decor with it, inspired by mason jar lights!;) Here's how I made it.
|| YOU'LL NEED ||
- Frappuccino Bottles
- Masking Tape
- Clear Nail Polish or Clear Glue
- Small Brush
- Wide Ribbon
- Christmas lights (preferably white)
- Spray Paint OPTIONAL (if lights aren't the color desired)
If the color of the Christmas lights aren't what you want than you can spray paint it a different color, first cover the light heads with masking tape and spray paint it to the color of your choosing. I choose a metallic silver so that the light will reflect. Wait at least an hour to dry, it doesn't have to be perfectly covered
Coat the bottom 1/4 with clear nail polish or clear glue and spread with a brush. Pour some glitter into the bottle and shake it around till the sticky areas are all covered.
Tie a bow around a few of the neck of the bottle to add some more details.
String the lights 10 cm from each other and push the lights in one by one.
Voila Enjoy your new tumblr-esque lights!

Here's a really simple DIY jewelry holder to sort necklaces of all shapes and sizes!
- Canvas (Whatever size you want, but if you want to go big better to find one that's better quality)
- Cardboard (size of the back of your canvas)
- Masking Tape
- Push Pins (In the color of your choosing)
- You choice of stretchy fabric OPTIONAL
Cut the cardboard to the size of the back of your canvas with an extra centimeter edge on all sides
Slide the cardboard underneath the sides on the back and use tape to secure it in place.
Stretch the fabric over the canvas and tape it to the back. Just stretch it enough so there are no wrinkles but not so tight that tape won't hold it down. I jsut didn't really like the look of the canvas.
Lay out your jewellery on the canvas to where you want it to hang at and push your push pins accordingly while holding the cardboard on the back to make sure it goes through completely
Hang it! I just used 2 push pins on my wall to hold it and it seems to be holding up fine, but depending on your wall type and how heavy your jewelry may be, you may want to look for picture frame hangers to hold it up
