MY DIY.

i've been feeling rather crafty lately and have become a little diy obsessed.  here are two of my favorite diy projects from this week.

DIY SHOULDER PATCHES

i always love how shoulder patches (and elbow patches for that matter) look on holden's sweaters.  we have a few plain and boring, not to mention dark (we like color around this house!), sweaters in holden's closet and i felt compelled to spruce them up a bit.  you can find the step-by-step instructions on the babiekins blog here.

DIY PAPER MACHE ANIMAL HEAD

papermache9_formyblogi have been lusting after the anthropologie paper mache animal heads for a while, but i couldn't bring myself to spend the money on them knowing that in all too quick of time i would be tired with them and onto something new.  so this week i set out to diy my own paper mache zebra head and although not perfect, i think it works for holden's playroom.  you can find the step-by-step instructions on a little artsy's blog here.
