DIY Projects Pt 2

Hi All!

Just thought I'd do another quick post with some new DIY Canvases I've been doing.

I also want to post a picture of an awesome canvas I'm waiting to be delivered!

So first things first here are two of the three canvases I've done today using:

- Three small blank canvas
- Acrylic paint in black & white
- Safari Animals
- Superglue

So yeah, I think it's pretty self explanatory what I did there (just waiting for number three animals to dry now, white animals on a black background)

All of these DIY projects I'm doing will hopefully contribute on decorating the house that we're hoping to find and move into after Christmas, we may have very little furniture but at least the walls will look nice!

And for our newest addition we are awaiting delivery of this map of the world from

I'm so excited for this to get here - even if we currently don't have anywhere to hang a 30" x 40" canvas . . . Oh well it can wait!

Peace y'all

DIY Projects . . .

So, my last post was a very tall tale wasn't it?

In my absence not a lot has really happened, apart from setting a date for our wedding and steam rolling along with plans for that!

Anyway, as the title of this post suggests I figured I'd come back to blogging for DIY ideas; I've been reading a lot of blogs lately for ideas for handmade goodies for the wedding decorations.

So far I've tried a couple of things out - flowers, candle holders and pinwheels. That, however, is a post for another day.

Today I have done some non-wedding DIY projects, take a look and tell me what you think!

We got these Lucky Beers for a pound a couple of weeks ago and couldn't face throwing them away, so candle holders they will be from now!

I bought a few canvasses today, used some spare material and stuck it on - put some pins in and there you have it - somewhere to hang my jewellery!

And finally this - a canvas and 80 Fairy lights to make a nice mood light for the bedroom.

Let me know what you think! I'll definitely be doing more DIY stuff in the future so feel free to share any of your own projects!

Peace y'all
