A simple hack to turn an old candle pretty! Yes a post on how to decorate candles and this time its a burlap ribbon wrapped candles ! You wont believe how gorgeous they actually look.
This project is simple but a lifesaver for all the unattractive candles lying around at home. I am a hoarder of scented candles but over time they lose their pretty appeal, especially when they start drooling down . Lately, my obsession has shifted to jars, especially when I think about all the drooling and wax drippings which can be avoided. However, then I realized, the jar also becomes ugly with little wax sticking here and there, after you start using the candle . Look how untidy it looks now!

I made these pretty DIY geometric lampshade as my very first DT post for Itsybitsy and I loved how they turned out to be. I think its the colors. I always love this combination of blue and green. Vibrant and pretty! I made these out of foam boards and you can buy them from itsybitsy. These boards are durable and easy to work with and also are available in various shades other than white.
Welcome to yet another Christmas craft. Can you smell christmas? I literally can and that smell takes me back to the time when I was very young. The Christmas of that time is probably the most memorable one I had! We dont have a white christmas here in India in fact its summery christmas but that doesnt stop me from decorating any less. I tried these DIY geometric paper ornaments this weekend and I loved how they turned out to be. I have a feeling that with the amount of DIY ornaments I am making, I might need a seperate storage area for Christmas decor items! Anyways this craft is a little intimadating if you hated maths but hey its fun to bring out your geometry box and relive your school days! Lets head straight to tutorial then

As a child, I loved onam more so because of the long holiday and also because of the onam sadya and payasam. Onam was the only day in our lives when we used to have elaborate lunch on plantain leaf and it used to be so much fun. While our mother toiled in kitchen to make different variety dishes, we three sisters would be busy making onam pookkalam and improvising on it till afternoon! Those were the days!
