The Little Things

First of all, great news! My wonderful parents are coming to visit me on Sunday and we're taking a very exciting trip to Michael's. I'm in heaven! I can finally get started on these next few projects! Hooray!

So I found a couple more projects to work on after my shopping trip on Sunday. They're all pretty simple, but sometimes it's the smaller things that brighten your day the most. :)

Button Bookmarks

Like I said, pretty simple. All this requires is hot gluing buttons onto paperclips to make adorable book marks! How cute would this be as a gift for a book-nerd? (I can say that because I am one) Imagine- buy your friend a cute book with a couple of these bookmarks in a cute home-made goodie bag! I think it would be fun. Opinions?

Button Bobby Pins

Same concept with a twist on it. As an avid bobby-pin wearer/user/whatever these would be an adorable addition to my collection! With both projects I can't imagine they would be expensive AT ALL! All you need is buttons! :)

Decorative Styrofoam Balls

This project is going to take a little more effort! I stole this idea from both Pinterest and my friend Crystal's blog.

Here's the gist of it. (Did I spell gist right?) You get however many styrofoam balls you want and the jar you want to place them in. Then you need plain tacks. You then spray paint all of the tacks the color you need them to be and then tack them into the balls! Wa-lah- project accomplished.

Don't forget the spray paint you want to use!

And lastly...

Cookie Sheet Magnet Boards

Now this is a must for any college apartment! I am most certainly doing this for my apartment! All you need is paint, cookie sheets, magnets, and something to hang them up with. I think this project it pretty self-explanatory. You can even check out websites like Pinterest to get cute DIY magnet ideas!

Have you all joined yet? If you can't tell I am absolutely obsessed with it!

Goodbye for now! Get crafting my lovely friends!
