7 Weekend Projects to Try

This weekend popped up fast for me, but it looks like it's going to be a nice one here! Very autumn-y and warm.  I will also be trying to finish up our Holiday Lookbook for the handmade market, and in between hopefully get in some nice walks perhaps with the family.  Hope you have a nice one planned! Here's a few weekend project ideas I've come across this week! Happy Friday!

1. A Geometric Cheeseblock
Get out the power tools for this beauty.  Another gorgeous project from the folks at The Merrythought. Click here for the how-to.

2. Black and White Cross Blinds
Using duct tape, this project is super easy.  By Patchwork Cactus. Click here to see how it's made.

3. Make an Origami Paper Lantern
Well this is too fun (and super easy). A paper lantern gets a designer look with a simple origami application. By Eleana Kotsikoua at tusplus. Click here for the instructions.

4. A Chunky Leather Bracelet
A bracelet you can make without needing any extra special tools.  By Lebenslustiger.

5. A Printable Note

7. Decorate Your Desktop

That cross blind would be so perfect for updating the stereotypical, rather ugly rolling blinds while still staying budget friendly!
