DIY: Chocolate covered strawberries with ice cube tray

I came across this ice cube tray chocolate covered strawberries idea via Pinterest but there was no tutorial. Heather from Where the young learn to fly however has a lovely step by step tutorial. Make sure you check it out here.

1. Cut the tops of strawberries and place pointy side down in an ice cube tray.
2. Melt some chocolate and pour it over the strawberries. Leave chocolate to harden in room temp.  Freezing is a bad idea and I don't think that refrigerating is much better.
3. Flip the tray over and cut into chunks.

DIY: How to fix broken eye shadow by Free People

Here's a super easy DIY broken eye shadow fix by Free People! I have so many cracked eyeshadows as well as blushers that have gone to waste...

What you need
- Rubbing alcohol
- Your broken eye shadow.  

1. Pour a little rubbing alcohol into your eye shadow container — just enough so that the shadow is saturated.  
2. Smooth out the mixture. You can use your finger, a spoon, a wooden stick — anything that will flatten it out.  
3. Wait a few hours for the shadow to harden completely, and it will be as good as new!

Voila~! Thanks Free People for this fab trick! Make sure you check out their full tutorial here.

DIY: Racer back work out top tutorial

Here's a super easy DIY Racer back work out top inspired by Rabbit food for my bunny teeth's cool tutorial. It took me 10 minutes to make and absolutely lovin' it! I used an old T-Shirt that I never wore. Oh, the joys of upcycling!!

- Washed T-Shirt
- Scissors

1. Start with an old washed T-Shirt - the bigger the better.
2. Cut off the sleeves, neckline and 2" (3cm) off the bottom. (Save this as you will use it later). You can decide how you want your neckline to look and cut it accordingly.
3. Turn your shirt over and cut the back into more of a racer back.
4. Now stretch your leftover bottom cut off so it becomes one nice long piece of string. Wrap up and down the two shoulder backs until you have no left over fabric and tie into a bow.

Voila! Now go on and rock this super hot racer back top at the gym!

FREEBIE: DIY Pasta container plus printable cover

Here's a fun upcycled Pringles pasta container tutorial! Unlike other bags of pasta which you can just roll up, spaghetti packets are a bit awkward don't you think? You can solve the problem by putting the extras in a Pringles can!! To make it even easier for you all, I've made the covers/wrappers available to download - for free! 

1.  Use an old XXL Pringles container.
2.  Download my free printable patterns and print to fit to A4. (download links below)
3.  Fold the top and bottom of the print to fit the height of the container. (there's no need to cut as the fold gives it a cleaner finish)
4. Tape at the back.

Happy crafting everyone!

DIY: Binder clips cable organiser

Isn't this is the most easy way to organise your cable plugs!? Found via Hardware Sphere, using simple binder clips and a tabletop with edges can help you manage your plugs!

1. Clip the binder clips to the tabletop’s edge
2. Release the metal handle and slip in any size plug

The only requirement that is pretty crucial is the table. If you have a table with no edge to clip on, this unfortunately won't work.

DIY: Marimekko inspired sharpie mugs

I am always obsessed with Marimekko's dinnerware but did you know you don't have to spend a lot to decorate your plain dishes? Check out what I did with my plain white mugs!

1. All you need is a sharpie (oil based is best) and a porcelain white mug. (Check to make sure it is oven safe as some glazes are safe for microwaving but toxic in the oven).
2. Draw what ever you like on the mug and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. (180°)
3. Cool the mugs at room temperature before washing.

Voila! For best results, hand wash these babies rather than putting it through the dishwasher.

Happy Crafting~!
