Hello my beautiful readers! As I’ve mentioned in one of my previous posts, I just recently finished completing a list of 10-12 nesting projects that I was inspired to make from Pinterest, and I’m sure you guys are expecting my next list that I talked about making. Well, I’m done choosing which projects to do next while I wait for little Natalia to be here (which btw I’m 41 weeks and 1 day today and she’s still not here!) So to keep my head on straight, I’m going to occupy myself with these cute projects that I found to keep myself busy. (:
#1. Glitter Wine Glasses
After I have this baby, I’m definitely planning on celebrating my treating myself to a very long missed glass of wine, but I want it to be festive and decorative so I’m going to make a pink glitter wine glass for my 9 month break celebration. These are so easy to make, all I need to do is get some very fine loose pink glitter and a couple of cheap wine glasses from the dollar store.
#2. DIY Nail Polish Rack.
If you follow my blog, then you are familiar with my addiction for nail polish and nail art. I have quite a large collection of nail polish and nail art supplies, but they’re all stored away in shoe boxes. I was going to decorate the shoe boxes but it just seems like to much trouble, especially since they’re not even visible, they’re sitting on shelves in my closet. I planned to buy a nail polish display rack that mounts on the wall from Amazon, but it’s $30! I came across this AMAZING idea where you make your own nail polish rack using foam boards, glue and whatever you want to decorate it with. I find so many pros to this project that completely knock this item off my Amazon wish list. For one, it’s totally affordable. Considering I have all the decorations I need, I only have to spend $12 making this ($7 for 3 foam boards – 1.99 each plus tax @ Walmart, and $4 plus tax for some permanent craft glue.) Aside from the inexpensiveness of this project, one of my other favorite things about it is that you can make it as big or small as you want, add as many shelves as you want, and decorate it to match whatever you want! Instead of using duct tape like many other people used, I’m going to mod podge glitter on mine and use duct tape for the inside background to hide that screws that I will have to insert to mount it on the wall. I also plan to add a larger top shelf to hold all my nail art supplies; which brings me to the next project shown, the decorative tin cans that will hold all my brushes. When I’m done with this project it’s going to look so cute in my room and help me to keep all my nail polish stuff organized. Not to mention the easy access of it being conveniently hung on my wall so I don’t have to take down boxes from shelves!
#3. Modular Shelf Organization.
This is another item that I have saved to my Amazon wish list. My obsession goes on to make-up which I have TONS of and am looking for new ways to organize it. I’m going to start by moving all my hair care products to modular shelves that I will hang next to my mirror on my dresser, moving them off my dresser so that I have more room to store the new makeup that I keep buying but don’t need.
#4. Glitter Keys
I LOVE glitter (if you can’t tell) and am trying to use all of mine in the most useful ways. I want to make my ugly keys cute and girly and what better way to do that then to add glitter?! So I’m going to mod podge glitter to all my undecorated plain silver keys to make them look as cute as this one. I want to do them all in pink, but different shades to give them a gradient effect.
#5. DIY Sunglasses Holder
I have soooooo many pairs of sunglasses put away in a bag that I have to go through every time I want to wear a different pair. It’s a little aggravating to have to dump the entire bag out just so I can see what the pairs look like. Not only that but they are also at risk of being damaged. So I came across this nifty idea that I want to make that also hangs on the wall. (I’m trying to decorate my plain walls!) All I need is a long skinny picture frame and some pretty ribbon (zebra of course!) to make this, so I plan on buying these items sometime this week when I get paid. (:
#6. Glitter Clothespin Magnets
More glitter? Yes please! I found these ADORABLE clothespin magnets that you can decorate however you want. I like the way whoever did this decorated theirs. They used glitter and zebra print, which is what I plan to do, but I’m going to make mine turquoise, hot pink & lime green. I already have clothespins, magnets and zebra fabric and duct tape, whichever I decide to use. I just have to buy neon acrylic paint that I can get at Walmart for $1.50 a bottle and some new paintbrushes because I’ve been using the heck out of mine! So I’m due for a new set. (: These will go perfect on the DIY magnetic board that I also plan on making, but I will post about that later on.
#7. Shower Curtain Rod Organization
Since my shower caddy keeps falling off, and it’s hard to clean, and it’s pretty much breaking my shower head off, I found this useful idea to hang another shower curtain rod on the opposite side of the shower and use curtain hooks to hang dollar store baskets and other items. I’m definitely going to make use of this. I already have the shower curtain rod, but I can get the hooks for $1 at Dollar Tree and the cute baskets (orange to match my bathroom) at Familiar Dollar. I think I can get a pack of 6 for $3.
#8. Bobby Pin Carrier
This simple idea is so useful for a girl like me. I use bobby pins ALL THE TIME and need them at the most random times. What better way to carry them than with a tic tac box?! I can use it for traveling and to just have in my purse. All I need to buy are the tic tacs. (:
#9: Easy To Make Bookmarks
I’ve never been much of a reader, until lately. And I don’t have any cute bookmarks, but I do have a lot of cute missing or broken jewelry pieces, and tonsssss of scrap-booking paper and supplies as well as ribbon. So I figured I could put these items to use and make my own bookmarks like these cute ones!
#10. Easy To Make Hair Bows
I loveee hair accessories: hair bows, headbands, ribbons, clips, flowers, anything to accentuate your everyday hairstyles. So I want to try to make my own just for the heck of it! I found this cute easy tutorial that I want to try out.
#11. Mod Podge Ceiling Fan
I have an $80 zebra print fan blade set saved to my “future” Amazon wish list. But that just got deleted the other day when I came across this picture! Somebody used wallpaper border and applied it to their ceiling fan blades that made it look so good I had to do the same! But instead of using wallpaper border (because it’s pretty expensive) I’m going to use fabric mod podge and just apply zebra print fabric to it! I want to do this for my fan and the Natalia’s fan to match her and my zebra print bedrooms. ❤ *BTW the last of these projects including this one are all baby related projects.
#12. Glitter Rocks for Decoration
Yes, I have more glitter projects on the list. A girly girl like me can never have too much sparkle in her life. I think this is the cutest idea ever. Since I live in the country surrounded by woods and nature, these rocks are easy to find around here and match the environment so well, and adding sparkle will just give it that girly personalization that I love to add to everything of mine. But this project however is for my daughters bed room. I don’t have too many things decorating the tops of her dressers and night table, so this is an expensive decoration that I will make for her instead! I just need the rocks, the glue, the glitter and a cute little acrylic container to put them in, which I can get one at the Dollar Tree for just a dollar.
#13. Make a Plain Plastic Basket Cute with Ribbon
Natalia has some baskets in her room that I bought to hold stuff in and they looks similar to this basket but they’re actually cuter because I bought pink ones, hehehe. (; I also have very pretty sparkly silver, black and white ribbon I can use to decorate them with even more because Lord knows how much I love ribbon and how many ribbon bows I already have all over Natalia’s room. She’s going to be such a girly girl just like her momma. ❤
#14. 3D Butterfly Frame
I think this is just absolutely adorable. All white butterflies and one pink one with the baby’s name date and time of birth. I want to make this for Natalia and hang it on the wall. I need to buy a black frame and a butterfly punch. I have the card stock. This will be so fun to make!
#15. Decorated Letter
I was going to buy letters to spell out NATALIA, but they are so expensive these days! You can buy cheap ones, but they’re just not as cute as the other ones. I have old letters that spell out KAREN because that’s my sisters name, but she never used them, so they’ve just been laying around collecting dust. I’m going to use just the N letter and decorate that to hang on the door since her room already has too many wall decorations. I have all these photos for ideas and inspiration. ❤
Well these are my project plans for the next few weeks. I’m very excited about making them and I still have more that I want to do! But these will do for now. I will start shopping for my supplies tomorrow, so keep looking for my next post; it will be all these projects but MINE. (:
