It was so sweet of The Crafty Mummy to let me feature her project on last's month's Blog of the Month post! Check it out if you're not quite ready to admit that Halloween is over. Don't worry - you're not alone!
With daylight savings time ending this Sunday, it's going to be darker outside even earlier. As the days get shorter and the weather gets colder, cabin fever can take over. Beat the boredom with some awesome D.I.Y. projects to keep track of time and light up your home!
I am so excited about this blog! Pretty Handy Girl features D.I.Y. empowering projects that shatter traditional gender stereotypes. Now that's a mission I can get behind! She even has a toolbox guide to help you pick out tools you'll need to create her projects. It's so important that everybody learns to use tools to fix things around the house and what better way to learn than with some fun D.I.Y. projects? Add more light to your home and learn to be a little more handy with this DIY Button Pendant Light.
This beautiful lamp can be made with colorful buttons for a fun, playful effect or make it with neutral colors for a more sophisticated look. Match the buttons to the rest of your home decor and it will fit seamlessly in any room. While Pretty Handy Girl does teach you how to wire your own lamp, you could just follow the instructions for the lampshade and add it to an old lamp. If you have the tools, time, and patience, I say go for it and learn how to wire a lamp! Either way, you'll have an amazing new decoration piece.
Mums Take Five also has a very important mantra for their blog: taking time for yourself! Crafting can be a great way to relax while expressing your creativity. She also has recipes, gardening projects, organizing tips, giveaways, and so much more on her website. This DIY Embroidery Hoop Clock project is great for creatives of all levels: from casual crafters to seasoned professionals.
My favorite thing about this project is the endless possibilities for colors and styles! It can be a great piece of decoration in any room depending on which fabrics and buttons you choose. Use a playful cartoon print and colorful buttons and it's great for a child's room or use neutral buttons and a simple print for a subtle look. Either way, don't forget to set it back this Sunday for Daylight Savings time!
I hope you enjoyed reading about our blogs of the month and their projects. Don't forget to send us pictures of your finished projects if you make them using our products. As always, you can find all of the buttons you need at ABMfashion.com. Below are just a few choices that I think would look great with these projects.
