This is a ribbon tulip flower idea. It’s very simply and beautiful .
About tulip :
The tulip is a perennial, bulbous plant with showy flowers in the genus Tulipa, of which around 75 wild species are currently accepted[1] and which belongs to the family Liliaceae.[2] The genus’s native range extends west to the Iberian Peninsula, through North Africa to Greece, the Balkans, Turkey, throughout the Levant (Syria, Israel, Lebanon, Jordan) and Iran, North to Ukraine, southern Siberia and Mongolia, and east to the Northwest of China.[1] The tulip’s centre of diversity is in the Pamir, Hindu Kush, and Tien Shan mountains.[3] It is a typical element of steppe and winter-rain Mediterranean vegetation. A number of species and many hybrid cultivars are grown in gardens, as potted plants, or as cut flowers.

Beyond Spring: 15 Flower Arrangements That Will Inspire Your Own DIY Bouquets

Buying flowers for your family and friends is a great way to celebrate a special occasion, or even just to make them feel special on a normal day. Sometimes it’s just nice to have flowers around the house for yourself! However, unless you visit a boutique florist or pay additional prices, the arrangement of your flowers might not be as pretty or fancy as you had in mind. If you’re a DIY enthusiast, however, then that’s no problem at all!

Check out these 15 easy DIY flower arrangement inspirations that will have you reorganizing and rearranging your next bouquet for the better the second it’s in your hands!

1. DIY submerged flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYDIY submerged flowers

Sometimes buying yourself just a few little blossoms is a great way to brighten up your space and your day. If you like pretty, unconventional things, you need to see Momtastic‘s submerged flower idea! Choose glasses that are the right size for each flower you bought and follow the instructions to weight each one down with flat crafting marbles.

2. Pedestal and foam flower arrangements

VIEW IN GALLERYDIY Pedestal and foam flower arrangements

If you have a beautiful, wide stand that you want to turn into an arrangement but that doesn’t hold flowers in place well, all is not lost! Your local crafting store will have foam cubes design specifically for arranging flowers. Put on in the centre of the stand and poke the end of the flower stems into it. Arrange them all the way around until the foam no longer shows and voila!

3. Teapot flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYRefreshing Teapot flowers

Rather than using a traditional vase to hold your flowers, why not make things look a little more vintage? Placing your blossoms in a teapot is one of the easiest ways to get that look! We love these little yellow flowers in a stark white teapot on Pinterest.

4. Glass bottles and scrapbooking paper

VIEW IN GALLERYGlass bottles and scrapbooking paper

Sometimes the vase is just as cute as the flowers, especially if you make it yourself! Find a clean, empty glass bottle that fits a few stems through the opening and neck. Before you put the flowers in, cut a strip of pretty patterned scrapbooking paper and tape it in place with washi tape. Tie it around the middle with a piece of jute string or twine for detail and pop your blossoms in the top. Check out how Decor 8 made these pretty little bottles!

5. Rainbow water and white flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYRainbow water and white flowers

If you’re looking for a way to brighten up the room but your favourite flowers are simple white ones, you can still incorporate colour in how you display them! We absolutely adore the idea of adding a little bit of food colouring gel to water in a clear glass vase and popping simple white flowers in the top, just like Paper and Cakery did!

6. Foam ball flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYFoam ball flowers

We didn’t realize until we saw this arrangement on Pinterest how pretty it can look to have no vase or container at all! Instead, try sticking the end of each stem into a foam sphere from the craft store so you create a small floral dome that’ll look perfect in the centre of your dinner table!

7. Citrus vase

VIEW IN GALLERYCitrus vase

This floral decor from Pinterest just screams “summer” to us! For a little extra scent on top of the flowers, fill a mason jar with halved lemons and limes and plant your flowers in the middle. Besides smelling great, the arrangement is totally gorgeous!

8. A standing bouquet

VIEW IN GALLERYA standing bouquet

If you’ve chosen flowers with very stiff stems then all you need is a ribbon and a wide glass to make this adorable standing arrangement. Tie the flowers near the very bottom of the blooms and spread the stems out so the bottoms are wide enough to support the flowers on all sides and keep them standing, just like this cute bouquet from Pinterest.

9. Cocktail flower

VIEW IN GALLERYCocktail flower

We love the stylish appearance of this adorably simple arrangement on Style Me Pretty! Trim the stem close to the flower’s head so it’s short enough to fit in the shallow cup and let it stick out the top like a decorative cocktail drink.

10. Flower monograms

VIEW IN GALLERYFlower monograms

This particular craft from Parcel Post is actually made with silk flowers, but we think it would be absolutely beautiful with real blooms for a special occasions! Find hollow chunky letters, use hot glue to fill them with green plant foam, and stick the flower stems in the foam so they fill up the letters completely.

11. Candy arrangement

VIEW IN GALLERYColorful Candy arrangement

We love this idea from Pinterest for Easter or kids’ birthdays in the springtime! Find a clear vase, fill it with colourful jelly beans, and plant the stems of your flowers right in the centre.

12. Spray painted mason jar planters

VIEW IN GALLERYSpray painted mason jar planters

Whether you choose to include the little bunny rabbit silhouette or whether you prefer solid colours, this spray painted jar idea makes for a cheerful and stylish arrangement. Check out how it’s done on The CSI Project!

13. Teacup flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYBeautiful Teacup flowers

You might think tulips and patterned teacups would make a very busy looking combination, but we’re in love with the look! Check out how Slim Paley added a vintage flair this way by placing purple tulips into teacups of contrasting colours!

14. Chalkboard message herb gardens

VIEW IN GALLERYSONY DSC

Painting a few simple planting pots with chalkboard paint is an easy way to customize your own display. Label them with the types of herbs planted, write inspirational quotes that you’d like to see all day, or give them to someone as a gift with a loving message message on them like these ones from Pinterest!

15. Upcycled graphic tin can planters

VIEW IN GALLERYGraphic tin can planters

This great tutorial by Home Talk shows you how to create adorable vintage looking planters simply by pasting images you like onto large tin cans. We love the homey effect such a simple arrangement gives the entire room, as thought you picked the flowers straight from the garden outside and grabbed the nearest tin to display their beauty!

15 Flower Crown Designs That Will Inspire You to Make Your Own

Whether you’re getting ready for a summer wedding, planning your looks for your next music festival in the sun, or you’re just really in love with the style, flower crowns are a gorgeous trend. Because they’re hot right now you can find them in most accessory stores, but you already know we’re big fans of making things ourselves! Your flower crown might be made of material and silk flowers or you might go all out and use fresh flowers and green leaves.

Check out these 15 inspiration shots of differently styled flower crowns to get your creative senses buzzing. Whether you’re gluing the blossoms to a hairband or wrapping fresh sprigs to a ribbon with crafting wire, your flower crown will look just as gorgeous as any of these!

1. Deep pink roses and berry pink lips

VIEW IN GALLERYDeep pink roses and berry pink lips

(Photo by Kelsea Holder)

One of the best ways to incorporate your flower crown into your look, particularly if your outfit is monochromatic, is to match the blossoms to your lipstick. A deep pink flower looks beautiful with a berry coloured pout!

2. Dusty orange blossoms

VIEW IN GALLERYDusty orange blossoms

(Photo by We Heart It)

Very lightly coloured flowers, like this soft, dusty orange are perfect for a whimsical summer look. Try weaving long hair up into the back of the hairband you’ve built your flower crown on for a bohemian princess effect.

3. Green ivy with white flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYGreen Iivy with white flowers

(Photo by Feather and Stone)

If you’re looking for a slightly more unconventional flower crown, this one’s for you! Simple white blossoms make it look whimsical and feminine, but the larger incorporation of green ivy sets this style apart form other ones and makes it look more understated and natural.

4. Small flowers and a hair braid

VIEW IN GALLERYSmall flowers and a hair braid

(Photo by Lindsey Shaun)

Speaking of understated but gorgeous looks, this style that incorporates tiny blossoms and baby’s breath makes a different kind of flower crown all together. Instead of gluing or wiring flowers to a hairband, use a braid as the “crown” and work the flowers and sprigs directly into the hair.

5. Loose baby’s breath

VIEW IN GALLERYLoose baby's breath

(Photo by Rebekah Westover)

Do you love the way that the baby’s breath in the previous picture looks so much that you wish for more? Instead of using it as solely an accent flower in your flower crown, try making it the centre of attention!

6. Thistles with white blossoms

VIEW IN GALLERYGreens with few blossoms

(Photo by Ciara Richardson)

Here’s another one for your unconventional flower crown category! Making it with thistles gives a stronger, less whimsical look but adding a few white blossoms among the purple blooms keeps things soft enough for a wedding or special event.

7. Silk butterfly crown

VIEW IN GALLERYSilk butterfly crown

(Photo by Wild and Free Jewelry)

Okay, so technically this look isn’t a flower crown, but it reminded us so much of the same whimsical looks that flower crowns often achieve. Shake things up a bit by building a crown out of material or silk butterflies the way you’d normally use flowers.

8. Blossoms and lace

VIEW IN GALLERYBlossoms and lace

(Photo by Maria Mack)

If you’re looking for an even prettier look than a flower crown is already going to give you by default, try combining your flowers with lace! Let the lace run along your hairline or rest lightly against your forehead for a lovely, intricate look.

9. Matching the bouquet

VIEW IN GALLERYMatching the bouquet

(Photo by Julie Siddi)

If you’re creating a flower crown specifically for a wedding, then one of the best ways of incorporating it into the look is to match it with the bouquet. The balance between the two bunches of flowers looks absolutely beautiful in pictures!

10. Flower crown tucked under

VIEW IN GALLERYFlower crown tucked under

(Photo by Delbarr Moradi)

Just because it’s called a flower “crown” doesn’t mean you have to wear it like a tiara! Try nestling your blossoms underneath your updo so the bun rests lightly on top of them instead. The look is unique but still classic enough for timeless pictures.

11. Blossoms with herbs

VIEW IN GALLERYBlossoms with herbs

(Photo by Michelle Boyd)

Many flowers together can be a little overwhelming looking, especially if you have slight features. In order to get that same volume in your crown without letting it take over your look, consider weaving in some herb plants instead of big floral leaves.

12. Cascading flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYCascading flowers

(Photo by MW Foto)

Why not consider some pretty asymmetry in your look? Letting a few flowers hang down on one sides looks beautiful, especially with some more voluminous gathered blossoms to balance the look out on the other side.

13. Pink cherry blossoms

VIEW IN GALLERYPink cherry blossoms

(Photo by Serenity Crystal)

A simple ring of pink cherry blossoms is the perfect look for a summer music festival. It’s pretty, but it’s low maintenance and easy to make. It also won’t distract from the outfit you’ve put together!

14. Fluffy white flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYFluffy white flowers

(Photo by Laura Murray)

Sometimes big is the way to go! Large, fluffy flowers look beautiful with hair that has some volume but not enough to battle with the flowers for space. Choosing white ones looks very clean and well put together.

15. Asymmetrical berries and blooms

VIEW IN GALLERYAsymmetrical berries and blooms

(Photo by Adene Photography)

If your motto is “go big or go home”, then you might be looking for a little something more than simple flowers. Adding berries to a huge blossom is a great way to mix colours and draw the eye to your face.

Wonderful DIY Pumpkin Seed Flower Decoration

VIEW IN GALLERYPumpkin-Seed-Flower-Christmas-Ornament-WONDERFUL DIY F

These pumpkin seed flowers are cute and beautiful, they are nice home decoration . I have never know about making a flower using pumpkin seeds , this is a very creative idea, and it’s very simple .
For making pumpkin seed flowers, first cut discs of card sheet, then glue the pumpkin seeds in concentric circles with the help of a hot glue gun , don’t forget to leave a circle empty in the center for the seeds to come. Then spread some hot glue over the center and quickly put peppercorns in mixed colors over it and wait for it dried ( I would like to put a family picture in the center ) . You can make a loop of ribbon and hot glue it to the back of the flower for hanging. That’s all ! Be sure make as many as you like and hang them on your wreath or garland. Enjoy ~~

Twine is a wonderfully versatile craft material that you can use to hang mobiles, string ornaments, wrap vases and bottles, tie packages, make banners, and form pompoms – and these are just a few of its countless uses.
If you already own a Bow and flower maker tool, then you probably already tried making twine flowers. But in fact, for these little cuties, you don’t really need a special tool.
Making twine flowers is something you can do with older children, those who are already quite dexterous and able to sit down for long periods. If you think the process may be too tedious for the kiddos, set up the cardboard-and-pin guides beforehand and immediately engage them in looping the twine.
Use these twine flowers as gift or loot bag toppers, greeting card accents, scrapbook embellishments, and party decor. Make several to form wreaths, table arrangements, and wall art. The possibilities are endless!

Materials you will need :
Twine (jute or cotton)
Cardboard (you can also use old boxes, illustration board, Styrofoam, etc.)
Multicolor pins
Scissors
Ruler
Pencil
Craft needle
Glue
String (you can also use ribbon, cord, a strip of fabric, etc.)

When you think of paper lanterns, does your mind automatically go to the simple but occasionally bland paper bag kind that some people use to light their walkways in the summer, or perhaps to the more complicated kind that float in the festival of lights in Japan? Well, one of those is very easy and one of those doesn’t necessarily make the best homemade craft on a casual afternoon, but that doesn’t have to mean that making stunning paper lanterns is out of the question!

Check out these 15 awesome DIY paper lantern ideas that are fun, fabulous, and make perfect homemade decor.

1. Scaled paper lantern

VIEW IN GALLERY

This super fun and extra bright paper lantern might not actually be themed after and type of animal or creature that actually has scales, but the way these little paper circles are layered all across the surface of a paper lantern from your local dollar, decor, or crafting store mimics the way the scales of a fish or reptile do. Find out how to create the effect in detail using tissue paper on Serendipity Creative.

2. Glitter paper lantern

VIEW IN GALLERYIn our house, the crafting policy has always been that the more glitter there is involved in a project, the better! Imagine how excited we were, then, when we stumbled across this stunning glitter paper lantern design from Two Delighted! The way the light glows through and bounces off of the minute glitter pieces is certainly worth the sparkly mess that will undoubtedly result from you making it.

3. Flower and pom pom lantern

VIEW IN GALLERY

Do you love the idea of building on top of a plain store bought paper lantern but you’d prefer not to use glitter and the scaled look isn’t really the one for you? Then try on of these adorable, delicate ideas from Craftynest instead! Use silk flowers glued all across the surface of the lantern for an eye catching look or a simple length of pom pom trim wound all the way around the lantern from top to bottom for a subtler look. Try it in the minimalist white design you see here or do it in bright colours!

4. Newspaper tube lantern

VIEW IN GALLERY

Have structured and geometric decor pieces with a lot of shape always been your ideal aesthetic? Then this rolled tube lantern idea is the one for you! Whether you built it right onto a paper lantern like the ideas above or build it independently and slide the whole thing over a standing lamp, the way the light shines between the tubes, as you’ll see on Marietta, is certainly worth the time it takes to make.

5. Frilly coffee filter lantern

VIEW IN GALLERY

Is your favourite kind of DIY project the type where you get to use unconventional materials to create something new, exciting, and surprisingly aesthetically pleasing? Then we have a feeling we’ve found the paper lantern for you! Ezy Shine guides you through the process of creating a gorgeously ruffled hanging pendant that adds some whimsy to the room. We love that the fibers of the filters are light enough, even in all those layers, to let lots of light shine through.

6. Fish scale pendant lantern

VIEW IN GALLERY

Were you intrigued by the first scale design that we included on our list but you actually liked the “scale” effect so much that you want it to look like real scales? Then you simply must check out this fish scale design from Design Sponge! They’ve hand painted their “scale” pieces to look like the scales of a deep sea fish, but you could do yours green like a reptile or a dragon too.

7. Chinese New Year lanterns

VIEW IN GALLERY

When we said “paper lanterns”, did your mind automatically go to the floating lanterns in the light festival like we talked about at the very beginning of our post? Well, even if yours won’t float, nothing says you can’t create paper lanterns that celebrate a different kind of light festival, but with a similar message and aesthetic. Try making Chinese New Year style paper lanterns instead! Craft Craft teaches you how to use strips of coloured paper to make lanterns that hang or taper in different places for all kinds of fun shapes. Make a range of them and see how fun they look hanging up!

8. Embellished paper lantern

VIEW IN GALLERY

Perhaps when you pictured your paper lantern, the image in your head was more delicate and unique than some of the bright, fun things you’ve seen on our list so far? Then check out the way Glue Arts created layered paper flowers from old book, magazine, and newspaper pages! Making your flowers from paper keeps the lantern’s aesthetic consistent, while the words begin to look like prettily patterned detail.

9. Wax paper capiz shell chandelier

VIEW IN GALLERY

Do you love the idea of making yourself a seaside inspired hanging light but the fish scale design isn’t quite as casual and whimsical as you had in mind for such a statement piece? Then perhaps this capiz shell chandelier from Design Sponge is more your style! Their tutorial walks you through the entire process of making the “shells” from wax paper and hanging them in a delicate way from start to finish.

10. Paper cup LED lamp

VIEW IN GALLERY

Perhaps instead of creating a predictable paper lamp made from cut pieces of paper or a pre-made paper lamp as a base, you’d rather create a unique statement piece that just happens to be made of paper because you like the dark glow the light has when it shines through? Then you sound like just the kind of eclectic person who would love making a paper cup tower LED for their home! See how it’s done in detail on Aditi Odyssey.

11. Cut paper pendant lights

VIEW IN GALLERY

Do you have a taste for bright colours, unconventional shapes, and modern geometric aesthetics? Do you also have either a laser cutter for vinyl and paper or a very steady hand when it comes to drawing straight lines and using an exacto knife? Then you have everything you need to make these awesome modern and super fun pendant lamp shades from Makezine!

12. Scrap paper lamp

VIEW IN GALLERY

Do you like the idea of a rounded hanging paper lantern but you’d rather have a more interesting visual texture than just the round spherical shape the store bought lanterns come in by default? Then try embellishing yours with even more paper to give it a little something extra! Painted by Prestige suggests cutting tapered strips of paper, colouring them how you please, and gluing them in layers so they hang long and look ruffled, almost like an exotic flower.

13. Thumb tack pattern lamps

VIEW IN GALLERY

Perhaps your taste in decor is a little more artistic and you love creating beautifully simple designs by hand? Then check out this thumbtack paper lantern method that resembles pointillism in drawing! We love the way Lines Across created these stunning flower patterns in a simple sheet of coloured card stock, wrapping it around their light source so that the delicate holes glow and create a pretty shape.

14. Bunting wrapped paper lantern

VIEW IN GALLERY

Maybe you’re perusing this list hoping to find a simple paper lantern design that would look perfect in a baby’s nursery, or even just at a baby shower for some simple but affordable DIY event lighting? Then take a look at the way Project Nursery wound pretty pastel and patterned miniature event bunting around a pre-made paper lamp! No matter what colours you choose, this design will look fun and festive even before you’ve turned the lamp on.

15. Jellyfish lamp

VIEW IN GALLERY

Are you still fixated on the seaside and sea creatures idea but you’re looking for something more novelty and unconventional in its design than the fish scales and the capiz shells? Then try creating your very own beautiful jelly fish paper lantern! Cut a pre-made spherical lantern in half and check out how I Need a Craft Room used different types of ribbons to embellish theirs and make it look like an amazing jellyfish floating in the sea.

Pretty DIY Garters for Any Occasion

Perhaps the most common place you’ll find garters besides a lingerie store is in a wedding catalogue, but they’re such a stunning little detail in any context that we’re kind of obsessed with how many different styles they come in. At top end stores, however, you’ll find that garters can be extremely expensive even if they’re quite plain. Now, don’t get us wrong, there’s a certain elegance in a simple garter style, but making your own gives you license to get a little more creative if you’d like!

Check out these 15 lovely DIY garter styles that will impress at any wedding or with any look you choose, no matter which technique you choose to make them with!

1. Lace and ribbon charm garter

VIEW IN GALLERY

Is part of you still considering buying a pretty store bought garter because it looks rather hard to make yourself one that features that same smooth silk and delicate lace combination? Well, we’d urge you to take a look at this surprisingly easy tutorial from Something Turquoise and reconsider before you rush out the door to the mall! You can customize the ribbon colour and the charm however you please.

2. Lace and cameo garter

VIEW IN GALLERY

Perhaps part of the reason you’re thinking about making your own garter rather than buying one is that the styles you’ve seen in stores have all been very modern and you’re hoping for a more vintage chic aesthetic on your wedding day, or really any day? Then we think you simply must check out this stunning lace, ribbon, pearl string, and cameo design from Wedding Bee! This is a great creative way to incorporate a little piece of family jewelry into your look as you walk down the aisle.

3. Ruffled ribbon garter

VIEW IN GALLERY

Are you looking for garters that are a little more sassy and stylish than the average lingerie store sells in the wedding section, but you don’t want to pay the shipping costs to order online? Then check out these ruffled ribbon ones from Free Wedding Projects! We love the floral embellishment in the middle and making these yourself means you can make them in any colour you please as long as you can find that ribbon (or similar satin or silk material).

4. Daisy trim garter

VIEW IN GALLERY

Are you more of a novelty lover than anything else, always on the lookout for kitschy things that aren’t to everyone else’s taste? Then a simple garter made from bright daisy trim sounds like it might be right up your alley! Rock n’ Roll Bride guides you through the surprisingly east process of making this one in just a few steps.

5. Shabby chiffon flower garden

VIEW IN GALLERY

Have interesting material, texture, and colour combinations always interested you but you’ve always been hesitant to really play with them and get creative? Then try following a design featured in a tutorial like this one from The Ribbon Retreat to test the waters! We love the shabby chic finish on the edges of these chiffon roses and how that contrasts with the pretty, perfect lace band.

6. Elastic pentagram garter

VIEW IN GALLERY

Are you much more interested in making a fashion statement garter for yourself than you are a wedding garter right now? Then we found an unconventional option that might intrigue you! Boat People Vintage shows you how to make a cute thigh harness style garter in the shape of a pentagram star, but they teach you how to use thick elastic rather than more flimsy materials like lace and silk or ribbon.

7. Dangling rhinestone garter

VIEW IN GALLERY

Are you still interested in having elements of classic wedding style in your DIY garter design, but you’d just prefer to make it a little flashier and more eye catching than the norm? Then rhinestones are certainly a great way to go! By “rhinestones”, however, we don’t just mean a few- we mean affixing an entire dangling rhinestone section to your lace band the way Shine Trimmy did here.

8. Glamorous pearl garter

VIEW IN GALLERY

Are you looking to keep things primarily on the classic wedding style side of things, with lots of white, lots of lace, and just a little bit of glamour, but you need some guidance to base your own simple style on? Then check out this simply stunning lace and pearl bead garter from The Ribbon Retreat! It’ll complement just about any style of dress, making it lovely and versatile.

9. Tulle and beads garter

VIEW IN GALLERY

Have garters always reminded you a little bit of showgirls, even when you’re wearing them as part of a classy look like you would at your wedding? Then reconcile the two style concepts by making your garter out of fun textured tulle rather than simple lace! We love The Ribbon Retreat‘s idea of adding ribbon, feathers, rhinestones, or pearls to the side to give the whole thing just a little bit of pizazz above and beyond the tulle as well.

10. Feathered garter

VIEW IN GALLERY

Did you see the small inclusion of a bit of feather above and feel so inspired that now feathered garters are the only thing on your mind? Well, after seeing this stunning feather and lace design from Bridal Musings, we don’t blame you! We love the idea of affixing the top of the feather to the lace band with a simple pastel ribbon for a bit of a colour contrast.

11. Studded roses garter

VIEW IN GALLERY

Have you been scanning this list in the hopes of finding more personal style garments than wedding things, but the pentagram design just doesn’t quite match your personal aesthetic? Then try this one that’s a little more cutesy instead! Cristina Viseu adds studs to the ribbons, roses, and heart charm to remind you that cute things can have some edge too.

12. DIY garter leggings

VIEW IN GALLERY

Is “garter” just the basic concept you’re willing to work with but you’re open to some pretty unique interpretations above and beyond that? Then check out these totally cool garter leggings by Boat People Vintage! We thin this is an awesome way to add a bit of boudoir inspired style to a modern casual outfit, putting a spin on the whole outfit.

13. Lace and rhinestone applique garter

VIEW IN GALLERY

Perhaps your inspiration for making your own garter in the first place lied in the absolutely stunning rhinestone and pearl applique you found while you were shopping for wedding accessories, but you don’t have a band to put it on and you want to do it justice? Then check out how Bridal Guide made this simple lace garter band and affixed their stunning hand beaded patch right on the front.

14. Satin bow knee high garter

VIEW IN GALLERY

Just in case you haven’t quite found the style of fashion garter you were hoping for yet, here’s one more! This double suspender style thigh harness keeps your high socks up where they should be and features an absolutely adorable little satin bow on top to catch the eye if you wear it with a dainty short skirt. See how it’s made in detail on Yumi King.

Stylish and Exquisite: Crafting With Glass

When it comes to making things with your bare hands, working with something like glass might not be the first thing that comes to mind. There are plenty of things you can do with glass, drinking glasses, glass bottles, and other glass wares, however, that don’t put your hands at risk of being cut (as long as you’re careful not to drop fragile things on hard surfaces)!

Check out these 15 super fun and very stylish glass projects that transform the original things from something clear and fragile into something beautiful.

1. Glass bottle centre piece

VIEW IN GALLERY

Okay, we know that St. Patrick’s Day actually just passed, but this style of glass bottle table decor is just one example of the unlimited ideas you can create. Remodelando la Casa suggests creating tablescapes involving glass bottles by dressing them up using paper, ribbons, printed tags, and paint so that they bring some personality to your table when you host a party. You can make them look however you please!

2. Wine glass lamps with shades

VIEW IN GALLERY

Are you a huge fan of the way candles glow when they’re placed on your dinner table, but you’re looking for a new and unique way to display them rather than just in your average candle holder? Then grab some wine glasses that aren’t being use and pop the candles inside! Follow the tutorial on Lana Red Studio to make a little patterned shade out of decorative paper so that glasses look like glowing lamps all the way down the centre while you and your guests enjoy dinner together.

3. Marbled tumblers

VIEW IN GALLERY

Perhaps you have some glasses you’re not using right now because they’re very plain and you’d like to shake them up permanently so they’re more fun to put out on the table? Then coloured polish marbling is probably the technique that will let you have the most fun while upcycling glass ware simply and beautifully! Martha Stewart guides you through the process of creating lovely swirling colour patterns.

4. Glass bead wrap bracelets

VIEW IN GALLERY

Drinking glasses aren’t the only things you can make using glass pieces! Many people sell reclaimed glass beads for DIY jewelry making so you can create stunning pieces like this rustic Boho chic leather wrap bracelet. The Philosopher’s Wife shows you the technique for stringing the beads along the thicker leather pieces this way.

5. Pastel chalkboard mason jars

VIEW IN GALLERY

Does your family eat delicious jams and other glass jar packaged things at a crazy fast rate, giving you a collection of empty jars that seem too good in their quality to get rid of? Then get crafting with them! There are nearly unlimited things you can make from empty glass mason jars, but given our current obsession with pastel colour palettes, we quite enjoy this pretty chalkboard storage jar collection by Something Turquoise.

6. Painted golden confetti and streamer glasses

VIEW IN GALLERY

Have you always love the way fancy glasses with gold leaf painted detail look when you’re served using them in restaurants? Did you know that, with the right paint and a steady hand, you can make those same glasses at home, but control what kinds of fun patterns you create them in? Check out how it’s done on Sweet Little Sparrow.

7. Copper dipped flower vases

VIEW IN GALLERY

Unconventionally shaped glasses are fun in your cupboard, but if you find that they don’t get used their often, why not repurpose them rather than getting rid of them? Homey Oh My suggests painting them with lovely copper chrome finish paint, arranging them how you please on a length of matching painted particle board, and gluing them in place. Use this storage piece for desk and office supplies or makeup brushes!

8. Gold polka dot champagne glasses

VIEW IN GALLERY

Perhaps you have a nice set of crystal clear champagne glasses but you can’t help feeling they could use just a touch of extra style to match the rest of your formal tablescape? We felt the same thing about ours recently but even in our embellishing we wanted to keep things quite subtle. That’s why we liked this lovely golden polka dot tutorial from List Inspired!

9. Heart etched stemless wine glasses

VIEW IN GALLERY

If you’ve never done glass etching before, it can seem like a daunting technique to learn because the finish is so fancy, but it’s actually much easier than you might think! Start with a simple shape rather than complex lettering or very intricate designs if you’re worried. We love this simple heart design from Love Maegan, which gives your glass wares a friendly style and detail without being too hard.

10. Stenciled glass bottle seat markers

VIEW IN GALLERY

Maybe you like the misted glass effect that the etching technique leaves on the glass but you’d rather have a negative image and work with colours instead of just raised white images? Then try stenciling with glass-friendly paint instead! We love these glass serving bottles that have been stenciled with tables numbers for a big event. Check out how they’re made on Almost Makes Perfect.

11. Frost stenciled martini glasses

VIEW IN GALLERY

Perhaps you loved the glass frosting technique and aesthetic but hearts just don’t really suit your kitchen’s current decor scheme and you think you might be ready for a design that’s a bit more challenging? Then check out these awesome dotted circles by Sand & Sisal! They’re whimsical enough to suit any season.

12. Chalkboard drinking jars

VIEW IN GALLERY

Remember those glass jars we were talking about earlier? Well, this alternative idea from Modern Weddings Hawaii still uses chalkboard paint just like our other suggestion, but they’ve stuck to the classic black kind rather than going pastel. They’re also kept the paint on the outside so the jars can be used for drinking without worry about ingesting anything. Use the chalkboard heart to label jars with guest’s names at events!

13. Painted glass desktop organizer

VIEW IN GALLERY

Freutcake has a great idea for old glasses of all shapes and sizes, but it’s not drinking from them. Instead, give them a shiny new coat of paint and arrange and stick them onto a matching base in an uneven, care-not kind of way. The finished product is great for storing all kinds of things in any room of the house you please.

14. Wood and glass box night light

VIEW IN GALLERY

Do you remember throughout the 1990s when many homes had walls with grid shaped glass inserts shaped like squares? We lived in more than one house that featured a wall like this and we’ve always thought those glass pieces would be great for crafting. Looks like I Love to Create agrees! Just in case you happen to have one of those lying around, here’s a tutorial that will help you turn it into a cute night light or side lamp with a little bit of handiwork.

15. Pretty paint dotted glasses

VIEW IN GALLERY

Do you like the paint dotted looks you’ve seen on the list so far but you think you might prefer them if they were a little more “messy creative” and colourful rather than being more “subtle glamour”? Then check out this bright, cheerful coloured fingerprint look from Popsugar! We’re pretty sure these will look stunning and fun no matter what colour combination you decide on.
