It begins the summer, and with it comes a free andtime that could be spent on creating something useful and meaningful. I, for example, is very enthusiastic attitude to things made by their hands, namely, the self-made decorative elements. Of course, no one has enough time to realize all our plans, but the production of a pair of stylish decor elements give you a serious reason to be proud of themselves and their abilities. Below I will describe some of the projects to which going to start this year.
I hope you find something to your taste andbegan to implement the idea of vending. If you did not previously own decorations, we strongly recommend you look closely to the following options. Each of them is relatively simple to manufacture.
Paintings and decorations within
If you want to create something different with your hands, but you do not know where to start, then you should pay attention to the project called "Quotes on canvas". It is easy to implement, it does not require any special artistic skills and his name completely speaks for itself. You just need to determine the order what you want to see the quote at the wall.
You will need: a bank of white paint, a little electrical tape, some old newspapers or magazines, spray glue, vinyl letters, as well as old or unnecessary canvas painting.
- Cut or tear the newspaper pages. The method does not matter, because the pieces do not have to get a little. Then obkleyte canvas Get clippings.
- When the canvas is completely covered with a newspaper orjournal clippings, make it conceived quote vinyl letters (make with the correct spelling, because the way back will be gone!).
- Sponge brush, apply the paint on the whole canvas and carefully trace the contours of her letters. Wait until it dries.
- Remove the letters from the canvas and enjoy the final quote on canvas.
Articles made of glass
I recently discovered a very convenient and creativemethod of cutting glass bottles, for which you need a thread, acetone and a little fire. Need dip needle and thread in acetone, tie a string around the bottle in the part where you want it to be cut, and then set fire to a string and holding bedplate, begin to twist the bottle. Once the thread is burned up, lower the bottle in cold water, and an upper piece will fall off. This method opens up a sea of opportunities for creating jewelry from wine bottles, so even though I have not figured out what kind of decor elements will do, to be sure, this summer I will cut more than a dozen bottles.
Also, small holes can be cut inthe middle of the bottle, put a candle in it to get a homemade lantern. Inside the bottle, you can even make a miniature garden, or at all, and serve them food. In fact, this bottle there is a set of applications.
Articles of clothing and pillows
Such elements of decor - this is not really myelement. Nevertheless, I managed to find an easy to manufacture and very useful product - honorary ribbons. If you have kids, these tapes can be used as a reward for successfully completed tasks.
You will need: thin cardboard, unnecessary fabric, glue and a few ribbons. Cut a piece of cardboard in the form of a square or rectangular frame, and then another, but slightly smaller. Then Spread the resulting frame with glue and wrap the fabric around it. Then cut a piece of paper that will fit into a small box, and write on it in fact itself the achievement of the child (Chess Champion, for example). Attach the label to a small piece of cardboard, and those in turn - to the main frame. And do not forget to glue the ribbon to the back of the cardboard. That's all!
Furniture with their hands
The next element of the decor will have to spenda little more time, but it is also quite easy to manufacture. This is a console table (or table-suitcase). You will need an unnecessary suitcase, but do not take that which is already torn to shreds. In the end, the next table must look decent. You will also need: four wooden legs, thin four square pieces of wood, a drill, a few nails and screws 16.
Make sure that all four legs used to stand underone table. If you have any unwanted table, simply unscrew the leg out and put them under a makeshift table. To create the best balance, cut four thin wooden bar (in the form of squares and maximum possible identical to each other). Glue, and then nail them securely nailed to the legs.
You will then need to place readywooden suitcase bottom legs so carefully calculate the distance between them. Attach the legs to the suitcase and, without removing them, drill four holes through the lower part of the trunk and upper parts of the legs. Thus, the hole will match perfectly in diameter. Then tighten the screws in the holes obtained through the inside of the suitcase in the legs. It only remains to put caps on the screws, and table-suitcase is ready for operation.
These projects are fairly easy to implement, and theyWe should not take too much time. If you are a novice in such matters, it is not afraid of trial and error - in the summer you will have enough time for him. And I wish you a good summer this year, and hope that you will be satisfied with his own hand made decorations!
