DIY

This cute DIY is so simple and comes together in minutes. Start by attaching the magnets to one side of the wine cork. Secure with a bit of hot glue to really hold everything in place. Now use a craft knife or scissors to carefully dig out the center of the cork at the same spot where the corkscrew was inserted. You need a small space around one-quarter-inch deep and around the same width. Pull...
1. Roll each color of clay that you want to use into a snake about 5" long. I usually make two larger rolls of white, a medium roll of grey, a small roll of any color I am using, and then an extra small roll of black. I don't have exact clay measurements for you (and most people don't have a scale to weigh exact ounces of clay anyways) so just use the photo as a guide. You basically want enough...
- I use about 1 lb (or half of the block) of soap base at a time which makes nine of these honeycomb soaps or four large 4-ounce soaps. The block of goat’s milk soap base is soft, and it cuts easily with a kitchen knife. I slice the soap base into cubes, place them inside a 4-cup Pyrex measuring cup, and melt in the microwave. Melt in 20-30 second increments, stirring well after each microwave...

How-To: Using a funnel, pour the fabric softener & baking soda into your spray bottle. Fill the spray bottle with hot water and shake well. TIP: Don’t forget to twist the nozzle over to the LOCK position if you’re using a Febreze bottle, or you might fall on your hiney. Now spray every stinkin’ inch of your house! 
STEP 1  Using a hand saw, cut down your rods to approx. 26 -28 in.   STEP 2 Using a scissors, cut the end of the arrow shapes out of the plexi glass.   STEP 3 Using an exacto knife, cut a slit in the center where the rod will slip through. Slash in the same spot on both sides. (Use with caution or the plexiglass will snap easily)   STEP 4 Spray paint your hearts, ends, and rods with copper finish...
STEP 1 Plant Seeds After the danger of frost has passed, pick a sunny, well-drained spot in the garden. Use a hoe to form raised mounds spaced at least 24" apart. Mark a pen with tape one inch up from the end to use a planting tool. Use the pen to create three small 1"-deep holes and place one seed in each. Carefully cover the holes with dirt and water. Mark the site with a garden marker.   STEP...
1.The construction is a simple box, with 1×2 inch pieces of wood to hold the laundry baskets. After cutting the pieces of wood, it’s best to apply wood glue to the joints before screwing them together. 2. Pre-drill the screw holes with a small drill bit and countersink the holes for a clean finish. After glue is set and prior to painting, cover the screw heads with wood putty. 3. After you have...
I used some regular packaging string and some yard with texture. Wrap the string around the jar tightly and tie a knot. Now wrap the string around the rest of the jar tightly criss-crossing and overlapping until you like what you see. Then just tie the end to the leftover string where you started and cut off the ends. Place the jars onto your covered surface upside down and spray paint them...
Begin by cutting 1 pound of suet into small chunks and rendering in a saucepan (or baking dish in a 375-degree oven) until all the fat has melted. Strain rendered suet through fine cheesecloth, allow it to harden at room temperature, and then melt and strain again. Measure out 1 1/2 cups melted suet and set aside. Place fresh cranberries in bottom of 6-cup Bundt pan in desired pattern (we used...
Before attaching all of our pieces, we like to sand all of our corners and edges down a bit.  We love the look it gives the finished piece!  Ryobi’s 18V ONE+ Corner Cat Finish Sander is one of our very favorite tools.  It isn’t bulky or heavy at all, and the power this tool gives is awesome!  LOVE.  We use it all the time and it’s perfect for this job. We started by marking our 2×6 board.  We...
