Water Marble Mason Jar

Hey guys! Summer is sooooooo close now! I’m sorry i haven’t updated in a while, but i’ve been so busy. I have time now, so i’m going to post this one now. I did this so long ago and had the photo on my hard drive, so i thought it’s better late than never, right?

You will need a mason jar, nail polish and an old container

Step One. Clean the inside of your mason jar. In an old container, fill it with water to where you want the design to go up to. Pour in a few drop of nail polish. If you are more talented with water marbling, you can draw designs in there with toothpicks, but I’m not, so i left it as is.

Step Two. Dip your jar into the nail polish and leave it on a Kleenex or old cloth to dry. Dump out the water and wash the container. When the mason jar is dry, you can take a black marker and draw some kind of pattern on it, but this is optional. You may also choose to use a spray sealant, but i thought that nail polish was good enough on it’s own

Step Three. Fill the mason jar with random things you need to store. Mine has some chargers and two random erasers for some reason. To make it look cuter, i put a glitter hairtie around the top and wrote “UGH” on the lid.

Thank you guys so much for reading and let me know when my BTS 2017 series should start as i have some amaze ideas. Remember to follow me using the button on the totally overhauled homepage so that you don’t miss out. Stay Weird! (I totally stole that from a t-shirt, but whateves)

#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.

Thank you so much for reading my blog and following my posts. I am  quickly gaining popularity (i think), but i just do it because i enjoy it. It’s not a job or anything. Just letting you know. Remember to follow my blog so that you don’t miss out on my posts and leave a like if you like my #LifeHack collection! See ya’ll soon! Stay Gold!

PS. Only Outsiders fans will understand that reference at the end. So probably only me. Oh well!

Winter Room Decor!

Hey guys! Winter is almost over, thank Mother Nature for that! Then I realized that i haven’t done a seasonal room decor post yet. So, for the last little bit of winter, and of course next year! On a side note, a great movie to watch over March Break is “Non-Stop”, which is a Liam Neeson psych thriller about an  Air Marshall who gets cryptic messages from someone on the plane. Its really good and you would never expect the ending.

1.Hot Cocoa Mug Desk Organizer

Do you have a messy desk? Do you need somewhere to put your candy? If so, this DIY is perfect for you!

You will need a tin can or other container, duct tape and plain computer paper.

Step One. Cover your container in duct tape. If you have a solid color duct tape, you can draw a decal on it. I decided to draw in the Harry Potter glasses and lightning bolt scar. Cut a circle out of your computer paper. Glue to the bottom of your tin can.

Step Two. Cut a strip of paper. Curl so that it looks like the handle on a mug. Glue to the side.

2.Olaf Wall Canvas

Contrary to the name, this is not really a canvas, but paper glued onto cardboard.

You will need a piece of cardboard and a printout of Olaf. I keep this up year round!

The Only Step. Print off your Olaf picture. I stretched mine to the margins in Word so that i had some white to fold over the sides. Cut your cardboard to fit the photo. Glue the picture down and fold the white over the sides to finish.

3. Hot Cocoa Sign

This is probably the simplest DIY in this post.

All you need is three paint markers and a piece of paper

The Only Step. Use one paint marker to make the border. Use another to write “Hot Cocoa, Marshmallows and Warm Hugs”. On either side of the “and”, use your last paint marker to draw little arrows to finish.

4. Henna Fan

This is another really simple DIY, and you can use it in just about any season. It is really relaxing to draw and i have so many of them!

You will need paper and a black marker

The Only Step. Turn your paper over to the corner. Make a black circle and start doodling outwards. To draw a henna pattern (or Mandala as they are commonly called), just try and make intricate but simple petal shapes or triangles and such and let the relaxation guide you.

“Stranger Things” Inspired Decor

“Who watches “Stranger Things”?” Mr Hollingsworth said. “Have you seen “Stranger Things”?” My cousin Jakob asked. “I’ve been meaning to watch “Stranger Things” when you girls go back to school” Mom said. We finally got around to it, and I love it! I was looking for the logo for another DIY and came across this generator which took your text and turned it into the “Stranger Things” logo, which was so cool. I thought that I would use it as decor, but it can be used for many other things. For example, if you typed “Nancy’s Notebook”, you could print it off full page and glue it to a notebook.
I used it as a sign reading “Natasha’s Room” for my door. To make this, go to http://makeitstranger.com/. Type in what you want and press download. Press print and you are ready to go!

 1. Kitten Mason Jar

You will need a mason jar, paints and a paintbrush ***Optional*** Fragrance Mist

Step 1. Open your jar. If yours has a really and i mean REALLY bad scent, you might want to spray it with some fragrance mist before painting. I made the mistake of not doing this and it nearly ruined the DIY. Mix your paint color and do two coats on your jar.

Step 2. Paint the face. I painted a kitten but you can paint any face that you want. Fill with things and you are done!

DIY Coaster and Magazine Holder: 2 Room Decor Projects

Okay, my room has not been redecorated since I was in third grade. Well, maybe that’s not entirely true… I did get a Harry Potter bedspread last Christmas and a lot of photos changed. But that’s not he point. My point is that it’s always more fun to decorate these places ourselves!
