9 Super Pretty DIYs to Try

We've been having an incredible couple of weeks of summer weather here – and now it's cooled down a bit, (we need the rain).  Also perfect for a little project making.  And we've found  9 beauties  for you this week (the flowers dipped in plaster of Paris seems fun)!  Check them out below:

1. DIY Hanging Bundt Cake Planters

A cute alternative for hanging plants. Use bundt cake or jelly molds instead.  Get the how-to from Sugar and Cloth. 

2. Plaster Roses DIY

Make plaster roses from faux roses and plaster of Paris.  (Photo by Ed O'Riley \ Stying + Idea by Lizel Cloete for Ideas magazine).

3.  Textured Plate

A cool project using air-dry clay and a woodgrain mat. Get the idea in the September '14 issue of Real Living. (Photo by Sharyn Cairns, Project and Styling by Tamara Maynes for Real Living.)

4. DIY Book Caddy

Turn a cheap thrift store magazine rack into a cute book caddy. More info at Hawthorne and Main.

5. Curtain a Door

We love this idea from the August issue of Ideas magazine where a flower transfer is applied and fabric strips that look like washi tape.  (Photo by Ed O'Riley, Styling by Carin Smith for Ideas magazine).

6. Baking Tin Wall  Decor + Shelves

Another cool idea from  Ideas magazine decoupaging the backs of baking tins to not only become a pretty wall decor display, but shelves as well. (Photo by Ed O'Riley, Styling by Carin Smith for Ideas magazine).

8. DIY Pineapple Art

A cute outdoor art piece made with a stencil.  Get the instructions from Liz  Marie.
