#LifeHack: Sort of Holographic Hexagon Wall Peices

Hello! Have you guys seen the music video for Alessia Cara’s Stay? It messed me up so much. So, the guy misses the elevator Alessia’s in, and then time just keeps resetting itself until he and Alessia go out, then he dies and everything just resets again. It’s crazy! Anyways, because it’s may and i needed to think (only think, haven’t actually done anything yet!) about spring cleaning. I took down a poster i’ve had for too long, but didn’t have anything to replace it, so i googled “cute Tumblr room decor” and found this. YOu can use holographic paper, i just only had tinfoil on hand.

You will need cardboard, tinfoil (or holographic paper) and *optional* Sharpies to doodle on the hexagons with.

Step One. If you are confident with your freehand skills, sketch out the shape of a hexagon. If not, simply find a template and trace it onto your cardboard. Make as many as you would like and cut them out.

Step Two. Cover each hexagon in tinfoil or holographic paper. If you wish, you can use your Sharpies to put designs on them. I used quotes and obscure references from “Stranger Things”, “The Librarians”, “Harry Potter”  and “The Outsiders”. I also wrote “ok no” and drew stripes on the rest. Tape or sticky tack to your wall to finish.

Locker Stuff!! DIYs and Revamps!

It’s that time of year again. Lockers. Sarcastic Yay. Do not let the cramped spaces bring you down, as it is easily fixed by cute stuff! Today I am going to show you the essentials that you can find anywhere for cheap, some awesome revamps on cheap stuff and totally original DIYs. Let’s get started.

  1. Locker Shelf

This is unavoidable. Lockers just do not have enough space for everything. Even if you get a few shelves, you will probably need a sturdy shelf at the bottom. This one was $1.25 at Dollarama, but they are just as cheap at The Dollar Tree or the locker section at Target and Walmart.

2. Whiteboard/Corkboard Revamp

I was at the SuperStore with my mother when she did her grocery shopping. We passed by their seasonal section and I found a large half whiteboard and half corkboard for only $2! When we got home, I decided to revamp it. I took the marker clip off the sides and covered the purple plastic part in flower patterned duct tape. Then, I blinged out the top portion with stickers.

3. Owl Magnets (Shown in #2’s Photo)

Okay, these are the best magnet clip things I have ever seen. For $1 at Dollarama, these clips come also in Peace Signs and Hearts. If you do not want to spend anything and have magnetic clips lying around, you can print off pictures of owls and glue them on.

4. Duct Tape Pencil Holders DIY

You will need duct tape, labels (I just printed off two Lily Pulitzer prints and cut the shapes I wanted out of the paper), packing tape and a tin can

Step 1. Cut three strips of duct tape and stick them to your can so that you can’t see any of the tin showing through. I like to fold the top over the rim of the can so that you get a polished look. If you run out of tape on your roll, just apply glue to the cardboardy (Is that a word) area on the bag of your pattern and wrap around the can.

Step 2. Stick your label on to your can and write whatever you choose, maybe what you are storing inside or be random like me and right things like “LOL” and “Be Awesome”. After the label has been applied, cover with packing tape for longer durability.

I loved these so much that I made the one with the British flag sticking out of it for my room! You can just put pencils and other writing utensils inside, or you can put all your essentials inside like I did. I put in a pack of tissues, a whiteboard marker, a black pen and the thumbtacks for my corkboard, but feel free to put in whatever you want.

5. Whiteboard Calendar DIY

You will need a printout of a completely blank calendar, stick-on magnets and packing tape.

The Only Step. Cut out the calendar. Cover with packing tape and fill in all the information with a whiteboard marker. Place a magnet in each corner and one in the center.

6. Personalized Magnets

You will need old magnets that you do not need, packing tape and printouts

The Only Step. Glue your pictures to the magnets and cut them out. Cut out a strip of packing tape and glue on top.

Just to give you some ideas of the things you could put on your magnets, I googled “Unicorn Emoji” and found the above picture of a panda with a unicorn’s horn that says “Keep Calm and be a Pandicorn”. I also used a picture of a kitten sitting in marshmallows, the Gryffindor emblem from Harry Potter and three pictures from one of my fave shows ever, The Librarians. Remember, this is only advice and you need to be as true to you as possible when decorating your space.

Happy Belated Birthday Harry Potter!

Okay, so I know that Harry Potter’s birthday was on July 31st. I was a bit late in getting a blog. But it is NEVER too late for a DIY!! I was randomly surfing the net for DIY back to school videos when I came across this one video with really cool digitally made binder covers that were modeled after YA books like Mocking Jay and A Fault in our Stars. I watched the video and thought that the DIY was soooooo cool and I just HAD to try it, so I did the cover for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and redid it for my Judo Terminology book. Here is the link for the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9u74s4AS1bs

I really hope that you enjoy this DIY and you can use literally ANY book cover that you want for this amazing DIY. Keep Calm and Craft On!
