Oh, How Pinteresting- Crafts and DIY

A couple weeks ago I linked up with the beautiful Michelle from The Vintage Apple for "Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesday" and now I am addicted. Addicted to pinning, looking at others pins, and getting millions of ideas stuck in my head (that I probably will never go through with hehe). Last week I posted a few crafts I have been working on, see the post here, and today I am going to share with you a few crafts I've pinned on my Craft/DIY board...

So this isn't a craft but this saying was funny. My finger tips have pretty much lost their temperature gauge thanks to my glue gun 

Fabric pomanders as opposed to tissue paper, such a great idea 

I will be making these SOON! I bought etching cream and just have to set aside time to try it. I am a hoarder of Pyrex so I  have a lot to work with!

Someone please tell me where I can get cloth doilies? I've looked at Hobby Lobby, Goodwill, Wal Mart...no luck


How beautiful are these mason jars. Just use pages from old books and decopauge right onto the jar.

Must. Make. This. FYI my husband has a mustache obsession so this homemade rubber stamp would get lots of use 

How cute are these wine bottles as centerpieces? Simply spray paint, spray with adhesive and roll in epsom salt. They would look so classy at a winter wedding or Christmas party

My Craft/DIY board has over 80 pins so I won't bore you with any more. Be sure to check out Oh, How Pinteresting at The Vintage Apple

Those cloth doilles are likely old. I have a number of them from my great grandmothers needlework shop. Now I know what to do with them. THX!

Camille said...

Love love love the bird bowl! It's so pretty!

Denise said...

That etched bowl is pretty, plus it fits well for Twitter users who found you via #commenthour.

PreshusMe said...

I'm not on Pinterest because I can see how addicting it can be! These are all great craft ideas, I especially love the Epsom salt bottles. #commenthour

chemicallyinclined said...

I would hit up some yard sales, older lady ones, and you might just hit the jackpot on cloth doilles. I know my grandmother had a ton, TON of them and I've seen them occasionally as yard sales. Ebay has some people selling them too.

I will have to check back and see if you try out the bowl etching. That looks a-MA-zing!

Nicole Rivera said...

First of all, I HAVE THAT EXACT BOWL with that etching!! I totally want to do that now!!

Secondly, I have a pinterest account that I am terrified to actually start using. I fear the addiction. I know it will be coming soon... the more I read about it, the closer I get to activating it!!

Celia said...

ooooh those wines bottles are gorgeous!!

Nicole said...

Love the balloon idea! I've done it with yarn, but not doilies...
New to your page!

Mrs. T said...

the doily lamp confuses me... how is it a lamp in step 3??

Jazmin @ The Miller's said...

These are all awesome!! Gonna go follow your pinterest right now! Thanks for sharing!
