This DIY was inspired by a gold dinosaur I saw on Urban Outfitters – but they’re so easy to make yourself ! I think they’re so cute and definitely a quirky touch to a crafty Xmas tree. Also a good one for the kids as week-ends and holidays become more and more Xmas activity orientated – and it’s just three simple steps ! To do it yourself, you will need : – Plastic dino toys – Screw hooks – Gold spray paint – Gold ribbon And here’s how to ! Step 1 : Screw a hook into each dino’s head or back Step 2 : Paint the dinosaurs on both sides and leave to dry Step 3 : Thread a piece of gold ribbon through each hook and hang ! What do you think ? I LOVE them ! I’m so proud and have them dangling around the tree 🙂 Cute, trendy and HOME MADE ! More decoration DIYs coming soon. See you tomorrow ! xx – – – – – –Do it yourself : Toy dinosaur baubles for your DIY Xmas tree
Just when you think you’ve grown up a little, a brand new toy comes along. I’ve been having an amazing time messing around with my Olympus XZ-1 camera this past week and seem to be taking sneaky snaps of everything. Some of them are useless but some of them come out great and I think this was the case for the short set of photos I stole from my local “General Shop”. Isn’t that a great name ?! You wouldn’t really know what is in a “General Shop” unless you walked in, would you ? And to be honest you wouldn’t really walk in unless you were looking for something you had no luck finding in “Specific Shops” ! Well that’s how long it took me to find out what was inside this wonderful trove. To my pleasant surprise I found exactly what I needed and more – teasures untold, thingamabobs, gadgets and whozits galore ! Isn’t it fascinating ?! I could have bought the whole place just so I had time to go through it piece by piece ! Unfortunately, all I needed were a few hooks, and they were just as easy to find as they were to put up ! Bye for now ! xx – – – – – – CNC on Facebook : CNC on Bloglovin’ :How many wonders can one cavern hold ?
Do you ever find that you have two items that suit each other so well and yet by essence cannot be worn together ? It happens to me so often and these two new pairs of Spring sunglasses are the perfect example. Don’t they look amazing together ?! Mint is everywhere at the moment, a real Twenty-Twelver. You may have seen byebyesoccermom’s DIY leather mint belt featured in Chic Steal’s links of the week (along with my Walk of Fame wedges !) or maybe you noticed it’s right there every time you click on TheBeautyDepartment.com, up in the top right corner. And red ? Well, red’s a staple. And the sexy shade is definitely enjoying the pastel phase fashion is going through this year because it stands out more than ever ! I’m consciously influenced by current trends and think these colours look grand together, but the problem with these glasses is I will always have to pick one or the other… By the way, did you notice my bright blue shelf ? I told you I was DIYing my new flat at the moment… Well this particular creation was made from a drawer I found in the street, a can of blue spray paint and a couple of belts : ) Ya like ?
