Mini DIY Round-Up

It's DIY time and this week it's a mash-up of a little bit of everything.  From painted triangles on an old dresser to a pretty embellished paper lantern.  Click below to see the treasures!

1. Painted Triangles Chest of Drawers

This fun little dresser update using painted triangles is from the Swedish blog, Hitta Hem - and although in Swedish, the how-to images are pretty straight forward.  Click here to see!


2. Painted Party Supplies

A fun project for your next party and if you're having a baumy fall like we are, make these fun little lights for a little night soiree this weekend.  Get the how-to from Aunt Peaches here.

DIY Gold Leaf Notepads by Hello Lucky
3.  Gold Leaf Notepads

The ladies of Hello Lucky have created a pretty gold leaf DIY for making notepads.  Inspired by traditional nautical flags, they felt the pop of gold would compliment the classic color palettes seen in flags and a perfect back-to-school accessory for making lists.

4. Sharpie Mug

We've seen the sharpie paint pen doing tricks everywhere, but this one has it's own little shine.  Get the how-to from Wild Olive.

5.  Embellished Paper Lantern

A pretty idea for a girl's room or dressing room.  Add paper flowers (hand cut or die cut) - or maybe even use Denise Sharp's ittle butterflies - see this post here for the download). Visit Glue Arts here for her how-to.

6. How to Make a Shell Wreath

An oldie but goodie and a fun little project to make with all the shells you collected this summer! Click here to see!
