Desk Decor-Part 4


Hey guys! Today's Monday, and it is also the last part in my series, Desk Decor! I am kind of sad that it is ending but also a bit happy that we can move on to a new craft! If you guys would like to see more series please let me know in the comments below! So lets get started on a DIY Book Case!!


Step 1: 
Gather your supplies:
A wooden box(with the top and a side taken off),a pen, paper, scissors, glue, and a ruler.
Step 2: 
Measure with your ruler and cut the length of the sides of the box. Cut the paper so that it is the perfect length.








Step 3:
Take your paper and a pen, and write your favorite quote. Mine is:
"When Something goes wrong in your life just yell, Plot Twist! And move on."







Step 4: 
Now go ahead and glue your quote onto your box. Let it dry completely. 
Step 5:
And your done! Now you have your very own book case!

Desk Decor-Part 3


Hey guys! Today is Monday and part 3 of my Desk Decor series. So today I thought I would show you how to make a decor above your desk. But it still is in the desk decor category. I had so much fun making this craft and it turned out super well. So lets get started!

Step 1: 
Gather your supplies:
A piece of paper (so that your work space doesn't get dirty),a paint brush, paint, a ribbon, clothes pins, tape or tacks, and printed out photos.(they can be ones your took yourself, or got off of the internet)





Step 2:
Start off by painting your clothes pins. You might have to give your clothes pins more then one coat if your paint is very liquidity.









Step 3: 
Once you have finished painting your clothes pins, let then dry completely before moving on to the next step.








Step 4:
Take your photos and your clothes pins. 
And Attach your ribbon to the wall with tape or tacks. 








Step 5:
Now go ahead and clip your pictures to your ribbon. And there your have a beautiful header for your desk!
I hope you enjoyed! Look out for next weeks post! :) Let me know if you like seeing series like this! Have a great day and I'll see you on Monday! -BloggerGirl

Fourth of July Bookmarks


Hey guys! Today is Independence Day in America so I thought that I would share with you guys on how to make your own american flag bookmarks. Even if you are not from America you can still recreate these bookmarks with the flag of the country you are from! But I hope you enjoy this craft! Happy Independence Day and Happy late Canada Day! So let's get started!

Step 1:
Gather your supplies:
Tape, scissors, a pen, red,white and blue colored paper.(If you are doing a different flag chose it's colors)


Step  2:
Cut out some, white strips, some very thin red strips, blue boxes, and some little white stars.(I used white boxes because it will take a long time to cut out stars)
 Step 3:
Glue on your strips and boxes to your long strip of white.
Step 4: 
Add the stars on by gluing them. 
Step 5: 
Take some extra red strips and tape them on the back of the bookmark.








Step 6:
Let it dry completely. And your done!!
I hope you enjoyed!

Q and A Answers

Hey everyone! Today I am going to be answering your questions! In the DIY Jar Cup post I asked you guys to ask me questions in the comments of that post! So today I will be answering them! Thank you so much for asking your questions! So let's get into it!

1. Question from BloggerA asks: Where do you get the idea's for your crafts? Do you just come up with them or do you look around for ideas? 
My answer: Great question! Most of my idea's I make up my self and on occasion I will try to recreate different crafts. And I do look around for inspiration! :)

2. Question from Musicgirl14: Where did you get the idea to start a blog? 

My Answer: Love your question! About 5 or 6 years ago, my oldest sister made a blog and I thought it was really cool. So now 5 or 6 years later here I am with DIY Crafts! 

3. Question from RhodeIslandBlogger: How long have you been blogging?

My answer: I was hoping someone was going to ask this! But I started my first blog Animal Lovers on July 18, 2015. But DIY Crafts was started in September of 2015! So we have almost reached a year! 

4. Question from Ashley7: Which craft on DIY Crafts is your favorite?

My answer: Wow that is a hard one! But if I have to chose between my crafts it would probably have to be my Ipod Pad

And that is the end of my Q&A! If you guys would like me to do another Q&A let me know in the comments! And I would be happy to do one because this was so much fun! This post was a bonus post so there will be a craft up tomorrow! But thank you guys so much for participating! Have a great day and I'll see you on Monday! -BloggerGirl
