We’ve posted plenty of items involving reused belts, but this project is noteworthy because it involves just two belts (and some wood and nails, etc.), to make a shelf. The writer uses belts she bought at thrift stores, but it would obviously work just as well with belts in your closet that you’ve long since stopped wearing:
What I love most about this project is that it is extremely unfussy: a mix of belts looks great; the more worn the wood, the better; and the whole structure is very easy to size up or down, customize (painted shelves, new or colored leather, etc.) and adjust as needed. The only difficulty is that it starts to get a bit heavy if you use thick wood as I did, so I recommend getting a helping hand for the installation, especially if you size the project up to a larger shelving unit.
Fuck your wall manifesto.
DIY Creepy Porcelain Doll Head Night Light Tutorial from Mark Montano here. This is so easy to do and as Mark Montano explains, using a porcelain doll head with glass eyes allows the light to shine through. *This would go well with my posts using doll parts: DIY Unique Doll Arm Jewelry Display here and Natasha’s Baby Doll Parts Coat Rack here.
DIY Kool Aid and Food Coloring Tattoo. First off there is no source - even after breaking apart the Pinterest collage and searching for the photos individually. So I’m going to label this Pinterest here. Second, lots of things do not work that are posted on Pinterest (the new breeding ground for the urban legend) so I have no idea if this works or not. Instructions:
Homemade Henna tattoos! 1 packet orange Kool-Aid, 1 drop green food coloring, 1 cup water. Paint on, let sit for 1 minute, pat dry. Lasts over a week!
