Handi Mandi TV: Christmas Decor – DIY Vase with Epson Salt

Let’s Re-Design you Vase with some Epson Bath Salts.

This is a really easy DIY home decor and here’s what you’re going to need . . .

WAL-MART:
Elmers Spray Adhesive
OPTIONAL: Krylon Aerosol Spray Paint in Brilliant Silver & Brilliant Gold (or another metallic or your choice)
OPTIONAL: Elmers Glitter in desired colour (I only saw gold and silver, you may have to go to Michael’s or a craft store for other colours)
Epson Salt (unless you already have some at home, whatever you don’t use for the craft you can use to treat yourself to a bath afterwards)

DOLLAR STORE:
Large Vase
Medium or Large Paint Brush (1 from painting section, not crafts)
Decor or Ornaments (I used 1 pack each of large and small disco balls and two fake flowers with sparkly silver ‘berries’ that I ended up plucking off and mixing all together.
~ If you cannot find decor in desired colour, grab the ones that have desired shape and spray with metallic and/or spray with adhesive to add glitter
Rubber Gloves
Painter’s tape (smaller the better, less cutting involved)

RUMMAGE:
Newspaper or Flyers (if you don’t have any you can take them from your neighbour’s recycling bins when they’re being collected)
Cardboard Box
Scissors

Handi Mandi TV – Christmas Decor: Super Easy Candle Centerpiece on a Budget

Need some extra sizzle for your Christmas dinner table? Look no further.

Most of this can be purchase at your local dollar store, a popular shopping venue in North America for all those of you viewing from around the world. Since you may not have such discount stores I would suggest either rummaging up some old decor or shop at a second-hand shop or flee market for used goodies and then pick up on the Christmas sales at places like Kroger for the next year.

Purchase:
*Decorative plate (long rectangle works best)
*Candle holders (cup shaped, enough to fit on your plate with some room to spare)
*Candles or tea lights & Lighter or matches (unless you already have some)
*Small decorative ornaments or decor that will fit on plate
*Krylon Brilliant Metallic Indoor Aerosol Can (silver, gold, or a colour that will go with the rest of your Christmas decor) [usually $5 a can]

Purchase or Find in nature:
*Pine cones (if you are following last week, you may have some left over) [some can be purchase at Michael’s Craftstore and most usually have been scented with cinnamon, yum]
*Moss or Christmas tree-like Pine (you will need to keep watered or replace when dried out)
*Artificial cranberries or other small fruit
*Coffee beans (yum!)

Rummage:
*Cardboard box and/or newsprint, opened cereal box, etc (this is where recycling comes in handy)
*Cutlery knife (to scrape the paper sticker off your purchase decor that couldn’t peel off)
*Nail polish remover, Goo-Gone or Purell hand sanitizer (all will work to get rid of any glue adhesive left over from stickers pulled off your decor)

Get the ball rolling enough and it may lead somewhere . . . (note to self: make sure to use steering, lol)

Handi Mandi TV – DIY Jewellery: Cotton Twill & Hex Nuts (How-To & Time Lapse)

Summer DIY jewellery has such a fresh look to it, and you appreciate it that much more because it was made with your own two hands. Get ready for back-to-school beautiful fashion jewellery. This week we’re braiding a bracelet with hex nuts. Zinc is pretty standard, I have get to find any ‘gold’ looking ones yet, but you could always paint them with nail polish to add some colour if you so choose.

If you like what you see or you have suggestions for what you would like to see next, please feel free to leaver you comments or requests below. I would love to hear from you all.
