Now I am no budding Kirstie Alsop and my DIY skill are poor at best, however thats no reason for not giving things a go and a few projects have been taking my fancy of late.
Of course they needed to be simple to start with as failure was not an option or I might never have another go!
My first was simple.
To create a disney story board using the many disney dollars from our many trips we have had.
|One Bargain frame from Wilkos|
|Sort many Disney dollars|
|Attach with photo corners|
|Check handy work prior to putting back together|
The second was to create a two tone bag as seen on A Thrifty Mrs blog.
|Take one old bag|
|Locate some snotty green paint|
|Paint half of each side in said snotty green paint|
|Add another coat if needed|
|One finished two tone bag|
|In colours I like.|
Over all I am very pleased with the results and they were all achieved by only spending pennies!
Next are a pair of shoes to get a revamp and a top.
(Keep your fingers crossed they go ok!)
