DIY Junk Mail craft

Hello Buddies 🙂

I made a couple of recycled junk mail crafts which are pretty and purposeful. I wanted to share them with you. I am sure all of us are getting unnecessary junk mails and we didn’t know what to do with them. Always the same snowflakes and Here is a fun way to re-purpose them.Junk Mail craft

Two things I made with them One is a BOX with a Lid and another a small BASKET. Actually I was inspired by this newspaper basket made by Jeffery and wanted to make it based on that I made this tiny Box with junk mail instead of newspapers because Junk mails are colourful as well .I also made a spiral Basket is the same way we make newspaper coasters Like I made the heart coasters. But this one needs more Patience Seriously ! I decided not to make one more of this. But I like them both mainly because they are recycled cute and purposeful !

Supplies You will need :

  • Junk Mails
  • Glue
  • Stapler
  • Patience (Really!)

How to make it :

  1. I folded the Junk mails into small strips. I actually used two colours of junk mails mainly Blue and whiteBox
  2. I used them alternatively. Prepare of lot of strips Before we actually make the craft
  3. To make the BOX weave the Blue and white strips alternatively for making the baseBox with lid
  4. Once the base is ready Fold the ends vertically and weave the strips on the vertical side to form the walls. Same way I made the Lid as well and small spiral and stuck on top of the lid for handlelid
  5. For complete tutorial check it out here
  6. To make the BASKET same way stick the small strips continuously in round shape.spiral
  7. Once you reach a desired size push in the middle of the spiral to form a basket shape.Basket
  8. Now apply a mixture of fevicol and water mixture in the ratio 1:2 part.
  9. This is for keeping the shape fixed and for little water proof.
  10. Thats it ! Pretty Basket and Box ready Use them to store your tiny treasures 🙂clip box
  11. I use them to keep my tiny clips and Pins.

Everyone tries to make something for christmas or make some christmas gifts. It might be a star or an ornament for the tree or  a simple decoration for christmas.

Supplies Required :

  • An old cardboard box
  • Dry hay
  • Oil paper
  • Glue scissors
  • Needle and thread
  • Set of dolls for the scene

My method :

  1. Main DIY part of my crib was the shed. I had one cardboard box which I cut and altered as a small hut. See the photo below for stepscrib
  2. Once the shape of the hut is ready cover it up with black oil paper. If you got brown paper well and good.
  3. No need to cover the roof top. We have got a plan for it 😉
  4. Once the outer walls and insides of the hut is completely covered we have to cover the roof. I used dry hay for the roof.
  5. Cut the hay into long pieces of almost equal length and stitch it on the roof. Apply glue before stitching so that it has extra holding.crib
  6. Now the shed is ready 🙂
  7. Place all the dolls inside. Cover the Baby Jesus with some cloth and place some hay below the baby as well.dolls
  8. I didn’t get the angel doll so I used up a angel tree ornament and stuck it on the back wall.
  9. And finally the golden star on the top 🙂 It is the favourite part of my crib. I will write a separate post on how I made this star 🙂 For now just the crib 🙂golden star

DIY – Old light bulb vase

Hello Buddies 🙂

I am back with yet another recycle craft 🙂 This time I am going to use old light bulb . Glass vases are always pretty and charming. Instead of buying expensive glass vases. I thought of making use of the old bulbs as vases. Actually my brother gave me the idea and helped me in the difficult part of the project.light bulb vase

Working with glass is always risky and ends up on accidents. SO BE CAREFUL with it. Ok now off to the tutorial. Here’s how I made it.

Supplies required:

  • Old light bulb.
  • Scissors
  • String
  • Empty Cellophane tape roll
  • Plierslight bulb vaselight bulb vase

My Method:

  1. The most tricky and difficult part of this project is breaking and removing the lighting stuff inside the bulb. We just need empty shell
  2. Thanks to my brother and buddy 🙂 They did this part for me
  3. Safety first remember you are working with glass.
  4. First break this black material in the bulb with sharp scissors by slowly wiggling through it.light bulb vase
  5. Dig your scissors in as deep as you can and gently break the inner part then remove all those technical stuff with pliers and let the excess fall out the opening onto a newspaperInside the bulb
  6. Got the empty bulb ? The most Difficult part is over 🙂light bulb vase
  7. Now remove the two small metal projections that holds the bulb in the holder with the help of pliers.light bulb vase
  8. You will get two holes where the projections were present
  9. Connect a string through these holes to hang the bulb.light bulb vase
  10. Pour some water in it. Get some fresh cut flowers or small water plants and put them in the bulb light bulb vase
  11. I have put money plant. They grow easily in water and requires less care. Don’t believe me ? See for yourself 🙂 This one grew in 8 months time 🙂Money Plant
  12. Find a perfect spot and hang the bulb light bulb vase
  13. In case you don’t find a perfect spot to hang your planter/vase prepare a stand and keep it on your table 🙂light bulb vase
  14. To make the stand take any used cellophane tape roll and place the bulb on it. If you are worried about slipping of bulb, you can better stick it to the bulb.light bulb vase
  15. Beautiful recycled vase ready !! 🙂light bulb vase

Happy Recycling 🙂
