Love Rings Altered Jewellery Box


















Hey everyone, hope you are well :) I am here with a storage solution for my rings-I always find myself absent mindedly placing them somewhere 'safe' but then can't find them! I bought this plain wooden box a little while ago and hadn't got on with decorating it so I decided now was the time!
I used my new favourite paint-chalky paint :) I loved the little lower panel on the lid so decided I had to create something special for it.
I bought some plain unbleached cotton, measured some cardstock to fit into the void and covered the cardstock with the material. I then heat embossed the love sentiment onto the fabric as an experiment. I was pretty pleased with how it came out!
Next I dealt with the inside. I bought some hair curling foam things in the pound shop. I cut the plastic ends off and removed the wires from inside. I then cut them to fit in the void inside the box. Lastly I pushed them inside and voila!

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
