Springumathings

YES! It is officially springtime! HUZA! To kick off the season, I’m going to teach you how to make a colorful, bright, “Springy” DIY.  Best of all, it’s recycled! Presenting, the Springumathings!

Tada!

Tada!

Need:

  1. A bottle cap. Any type.
  2. Some small items that can it inside said bottle cap. (beads, earrings, broken jewelry, etc.)
  3. A hot glue gun or really good glue.

 1. Decide how you want to arrange your beads.

2. Now glue your pieces into place.

You have been warned.

Keep layering until your happy with your results. You can add a safety pin and use it as a button, glue it onto a headband, or use it as fridge magnet!

You can also use the metal ones, but you have to be even more careful with those. Hot metal can hurt! (believe me I know).

Green Tip

Did you know that one million plastic bags are used a minute? (I learned this from a National Geographic’s book). Instead of using plastic or paper, use fabric bags when you go shopping instead.

Toilet Paper Sorter, Thing-y

You know how I just HATE having to do my crafting in a mess? Here’s a reason why. Messes clogs up your creativity and also drains your energy. Under one of my drawers is a wooded box full of toilet paper tubes.

It's a lot

And I also have some hair accessories that need some MAJOR organization.

Yikes!

Yikes!

I also have some tape that I have hidden in my closet that I’ve been meaning to use. Today’s DIY is going to be a collaboration of all three.

Need:Zebra print

  1. Some tape (It doesn’t matter if it’s patterned)
  2. A pair of sizers.
  3. An empty toilet paper roll.
  4. Most important: Hair ties, bobby pins, clips, anything you can come up with that can be stored on the ] roll. If not, then it’s just going to be a toilet paper roll covered in tape.

1. Put tape over your toilet paper tube. Make sure your tape is an inch longer then the tube.

2. Use your scissors to cut the extra tape in half down the middle.

3. Fold the tape over so that it’s covering the inside.

4. Repeat until the entire tube is covered.

Tada!

Koala!

Koala!

Now use it to store your hair ties, clips, bobby pins, or anything else you can think of!
