Make It Friday: Inspiration Needed


Make It Friday || DIY Roundup via Jade and Fern

Were you expecting another Halloween post? That’s too bad. I got a little over-saturated in Halloween stuff and needed some new inspiration. So deal.

» I’m digging this gold and wood platter by A Daily Something. All you need is tape & paint, my absolute favorite DIY supplies.

» This photo transfer on wood is just lovely. It helps that it’s such a peaceful landscape, too. On Free People Blog (yes, the clothing company!).

» Lucite + brass is a powerful combination. I can’t wait to whip up these lucite bookends by House of Earnest. So classy.

» Oh look—more gold! Monograms aren’t really my thing, but I love this technique for decorating a gold dot mug. Check out the tutorial on The Sweet Escape. (Also the name of my favorite Pinterest board).

» My jewelry weakness is earrings–I can’t. resist. them. These embroidery-wrapped hoops by Creature Comforts are soooo calling my name.

» This tutorial for paper dahlias by Fräulein Klein is in German, but Google Translate can help you with that. Make them in black for some macabre Halloween decorations. There, I got a little themey in the post after all.

Will you be making anything this weekend? I have some projects up my sleeve that I’m trying to finish up amidst the bustling fall season parties. But my biggest plan this weekend is gorging myself silly at the Boston Vegetarian Food Festival. What about you?

Happy weekend, all!
