DIY Plastic Pouch

DIY Plastic Pouch

I had this idea for a while.  It’s such waste to use and throw away all these plastic containers. I reuse them as often as I can. Here is a short video showing how you can make a plastic pouch out of used empty cream, shampoo or face wash tubes. It took me 20 minutes altogether – including washing and fixing these magnetic clasps. They are perfect for carrying small items like keys, earphones or even coins – I hate when all these things fly loose in my handbag!  If you don’t like the colour or design of the container, you can also spray it with multipurpose spray paint  (you might need a few layers of layers to cover the branding).



Here is a list of items you would need to make it (A shopping List)

DIY pallet seat with wheels

DIY pallet seat with wheels

When I planned to visit my sister in law and she asked me for help with upcycling a small pallet she had. Upcycling? No problem! I ordered all necessary materials beforehand and with everything ready, within three hours built this small seat on wheels. It even fits under the coffee table so if it is not used, doesn’t take space unnecessarily. 

If you happen to use the waterproof fabric its a perfect seat for outdoor areas. 

I did not expect how much fun the two little nices of mine will have one the project was finished. The pallet seat turned into a magic carpet for the evening 🙂

Christmas tree diy sewn decorations

Some inspiration for those of you who are not great fans of plastic mass sold Christmas decorations. I like my Christmas tree different, more traditional. I like thinking that it looks more like hundreds years ago when the tradition of decorating trees started and our grand- grand- grandmothers were making decorations themselves. Well.. I have…

Decoupage Candles – a Quick Video Tutorial

Decoupage Candles – a Quick Video Tutorial

I recently made som candles and recorded the process of making on the video that I would like to share with you. Watch that video if you want to quickly learn how to make a candle with a lovely decoupage. It is easy enough and you don’t need ant special equipment or tools.

For that occasion, I used napkins with flower motives, but I now am looking for napkins with Halloween motives to make my Halloween centrepieces. The technique will remain the same.

Before you start a piece of advice – I would always use try to match the colour of candles and colour of motives on the napkins. In these case I had orange and green candles and I found napkins with similar colour scheme. Thi way candles look more natural.

What you need:

  • Candle
  • Paper napkins
  • Scissors
  • Baking paper
  • Adhesive tape
  • Hair dryer
  • Decorative ribbon

Repurposed coffe and tea cans – stencil painted 

Repurposed coffe and tea cans – stencil painted 

I had many empty coffee cans and quite a mess in my tea and coffee cabinet, so I decided to paint them and have them labelled.

Here is how you can repurpose old coffee cans by turning them into tea and coffee containers and keep the shelves organised.

  1. You can make your own stencils  or download them. If you search online, there are plenty ready to go labels but if you have lots of different types of tea you are better off making your own stencils.  After printing cut them out.

2. Clean the cans from the dust and grease. Paint them in one colour. I painted my cans in black. Then, using adhesive (a tiny amount) , fix your stencils to the cans and spray over. Let it dry a little bit and remove the paper to allow drying completely. If there are any aces of adhesive left,  remove them gently.

3. As we are in the duo lingual home, I made my stencils in two languages –  Polish and English

4. Cutting stencils took me a while as I had to make lots of them – each tea and coffee type in two languages.

5. Nicely organised cans. They can be displayed like this.

6. I also painted the lids so I can stack them horizontally – this way I  have easier access to everything on the shelf.

7. No more mess or confusion as what tea is in each can 🙂
