Pinterest DIY

I am not sure if there is one person who hasn't seen or heard of Pinterest. Those who know it well have spent many nights up too late pinning like zombies. I included. I have spent my fair share on this site creating boards and pinning ideas for recipes, crafts, home improvement. After much pinning I decided to make a few things on this wondrous site. I started with one. 

The crayon picture. You glue your crayons on and use heat to melt the crayons. This is it




The second craft I decided to try was the scrabble picture. I hunted down scrabble games in the second hand stores and I went to work.




This I saw on Pinterest and loved the idea, so I made this for my first born baby.



Me and my friend made the wording together. This is another idea from Pinterest, however I have yet to get the proper baby pictures in the frames as of yet. The clocks are set to their birth times. 



I saw an idea about making a chalkboard out of an old frame. I scoured the second hand stores for the perfect frames. I found them! They came in a pair, they were a Chinese painting under the glass. I spray painted chalkboard paint on the glass and here is my chalkboard. I gave the other way. 



A lot of pins tell you about taking your own photographs and framing them if you get the right shot. Since we were to be in Italy I figured, not only am I going to take pictures to remember, I am going to try to find the perfect shot for some pictures in my house. I think they turned out damn good. There is reflection in some of the pictures but these are the pictures I took in Venice, Italy. 





I haven't made anything lately, I would however like to try this for my children's artwork. Since there is always an abundance of it around here. 
Scan the artwork in and shrink it to fit a bunch in a frame. 
Love it!

  3. These are brilliant - I particularly like the chalkboard one! Pinterest is one of those sites I keep planning on joining but never get around to doing.
