How to cut glass

This is quite possibly the most useful thing I’ve ever found on tumblr.

I really want to do this for the majority of the glasses in my future apartment

Stop and smell the rose (water)
“To save some money, make your own rose-water toner, which has great astringent properties. Here’s my recipe: For every one firmly packed cup of rose petals, pour two cups of boiling water over the top. Cover and steep until the liquid is cool. Strain, squeeze out the liquid from the petals and refrigerate the rose water in a sterilized jar between use.” Lianne Farbes,TheMakeUpGirl, via glamour.com

Hello everyone and thank you for your support/follow! Just a notice that if you’d like to submit your own tutorials or DIYs that you find on the web, please feel free to submit to the blog whatever you find interesting (with credits, pictures, and links). As you’ve probably noticed, I don’t manage to post that often and of course it would be great to have some new input and visions. Recommending other DIY blogs (not just on tumblr!) that you love would be fantastic as well!

Cheers everyone! Happy DIY-ing!

Appliques and oversized thrifted sweaters come together for this fancy look. Check it out at Trash to Couture.

Two projects in one. What a cute outfit! Dip dye the shirt with denim RIT dye, and use matte fabric paint for the faux leather pants look. This great idea is from Cotton & Curls.

DIY metallic pants with spray paint, by Cotton & Curls!

Statement rings made out of buttons…tutorial is over at Glitter ‘N Glue!

For all of you sewing machine savvy folks out there, here’s a tutorial from Cotton & Curls on her method of doing invisible or blind hems. Enjoy!

DIY Multiple Chains Statement Necklace Tutorial from Made in Pretoria here. Really easy DIY because all you need is chain, jump rings and a piece of ribbon. I’m seeing so much cheap jewelry in retail stores, but what I like about DIY is that you can customize everything from fit, color and chain type.

A collaboration between Runway DIY and Huff Post Teen. This would make a great gift!

A trend I can get behind: embellished sweaters. Visit A Pair & a Spare for the tutorial on Baroque Sweatshirts.

Geometrical jewelry with balsa wood. Find materials and instructions at Made in Pretoria.

A tutorial for boxy tops (a favorite of mine) by Cotton & Curls.

DIY Envelope Cell Phone Case, tutorial at Swell Mayde.

Snow is falling here in Montreal and yet I refuse to stop blogging summer clothing DIYs. I love winter, I swear.

A versatile cropped tank tutorial by Geneva of A Pair & a Spare, hosted at the Vogue Australia website (!! So great!). Plan ahead for future warm weather maybe?
