A few days ago I was looking over my Most Popular Posts for 2018 and realized that I use old clothes quite a lot.
I am not a fan of throwing things away, in fact that's what this blog is built on. Clothes in particular, hold a special place in my heart because they have such pretty colors, patterns and interest in general. It got me to thinking that I should share all that with you. I went over my projects and came up with 15 ways to re-purpose old clothes into something new.
Is your Christmas decorating done? I thought I had finished a while ago but you know, I am never really done. Always tweaking something or other!
I am always looking to use up whatever I have at home instead of getting rid of them. Case in point clothing that is no longer usable but can be repurposed into something else.
I had a lovely red sweater that was choking me at the neck. But no worries I wasn't about to get rid of it. I simply used it for my Christmas decor. Today I am going to show you how to make easy Christmas stockings from sweaters.
Last week I shared with you my awkward attempts at a Mini Christmas tree done up with ribbon. It wasn't bad but I wanted something better! And this is what today's Christmas craft idea is all about. How to make a dollar store fabric mini Christmas Tree.
Today I'm teaming up with a group of friends for a dollar store edition of a Christmas craft. Be sure to scroll to the end of this post to see what my friends are up to.
I was de-cluttering the closets a few weeks ago, taking out the winter things, and getting rid of stuff that we no longer want and found myself with quite a few pieces of clothes. I usually donate them but sometimes, if I see something that I really like I keep it and re-purpose it into pillows. Because really pillows can be made out of almost any fabric. Today I'll be sharing 5 ways on how to make easy pillows out of fabric remnants.
It is that time of the month again when I join my friends and we bring to you our unique projects from all over the world. Yes I am talking about the International Bloggers Club. Last month we started a new theme that involves using the Anniversary years as our guideline. We featured projects with paper last month and this month we are going to show you ideas with cotton.
I had gone shopping at a Marshall's and seen this gnome. And I was going to buy it too since it was so cute. But then I thought "what sort of self-respecting DIYer am I to buy one when I can make it." And since I knew this month we should be working on cotton with the IBC I decided that should be my project.
But did I succeed? You will have to decide. And so I share with you how to fail miserably at gnome making.
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece and New York.
