Clothespin, a new craft idea

How can such a simple object as a clothespin can be transformed in so many crafty ideas?

Wooden clothespin can be used not only for hanging the wash, but also for many different crafty ideas.

I always look on Pinterest and web for inspiration and i never copy other projects.

What i learned in this first year of blogging is that it’s not easy to be different and share new solutions.

But it’s exciting when a new  idea come!

I’m very happy to show you my project, and i’m sure you’ll enjoy it because: is simple, cheap , easy to make and  useful.

Follow the picture above to make it from different clothespin.

Simply glue together three of them and use a cardboard to close one side.

I have a beautiful cardboard book  from Tiger shop   that was waiting to be used for a project. I choosed three different decorations for the back side.

This is the final look of the triangle boxes , i use them in my bedroom to store my precius rings and jewels.

“One famous clothespin is a sculpture by Claes Oldenburg, entitled Clothespin. It is in Philadelphia across the street from the City Hall, and can be seen in the movie Trading Places.”

Escher: a DIY idea

Escher:  a challenging DIY project for me!

The peculiarity of this project is that my idea came out from a Escher’s beautiful drawing : ” Metamorphosis”.

Last 21th of June was the first day of Summer and i wanted to make a new DIY project perfect for this period.

I love Escher but “never in my life” i could ever imagine that his visionary drawing would fit in my idea of a simple drinks coaster.

Sorry for that, Mr Escher 🙂

HOW TO MAKE A DIY DRINK COASTER FROM AN ESHER DRAWING

THE PROCESS:
Starting from a cork sheet i’ve cut off different hexagonal pieces.

Do you believe in La La Land?

La la land: “to think that things that are completely impossible might happen, rather than understanding how things really are”

Cambridge Dictionary

I’m in love with La La Land movie, do you know why? Don’t worry i’m not going to spoil.

I’m in love with Ryan Gosling,  Los Angeles, Emma Stone’s yellow dress (and short hair..wow) and jazz music!

La la land is not a movie about love and music, is a “state of mind”.  It is about everyday life and “explores the joy and pain of pursuing our dreams”. The fact is…what will you choose : your dream or your eternal love?

While i still think about this…let’s go to sleep and dream about Ryan Gosling! 

The movie is just a key for me to show you the following moodboard about “Famous dance scenes in movies”.  The best 8 scenes in my “la la land” world.

Are you late for your carnival dress idea? Let’s be inspired and do it yourself :

 

  1. Dirty dancing 1987 – Time of my life
  2. La la land 2016
  3. Grease 1978 – You’re the one that i want
  4. The blues brothers 1980 – 
  5. The beauty and the beast 1991
  6. Titanic 1997 – Third class dance
  7. Pulp fiction 1994
  8. The mask 1994

And the winner is….

🙂

Halloween paper flower crown

Quando arriva Halloween penso sempre ad un film e ad un costume che mi piacerebbe indossare per la festa: “La Sposa Cadavere” di Tim Burton.

La sposa del film è magra, triste ed indossa una coroncina di fiori rinsecchiti. Anche io sono sposa ma felice, quindi la mia versione della coroncina è decisamente più rigogliosa.

Paper flower crown

Come l’ho costruita?

E’ fatta di fiori di carta crespa bicolore in diverse dimensioni assemblati con le mie manine, potete realizzarla facilmente anche voi. Le tonalità lugubri la rendono perfetta per la serata di Halloween o per sessioni fotografiche di street art.

Nel post vi spiego come costruirla e dove potete trovare il murales della foto.

Ruba come un artista

Non pensavo che un libro potesse cambiare il mio modo di vedere le cose, ed invece…

ruba-come-un-artista

Ho comprato per caso l’ebook per Kindle di “Ruba come un artista” lo scorso gennaio: non ne avevo mai sentito parlare ed è comparso sulla pagina degli acquisti Amazon mentre cercavo qualcosa da leggere.

E’ stato amore sin dalla copertina.

Il libro è scritto bene, è diretto, usa una grafica ed un linguaggio divertente ed in più risponde concretamente ai dilemmi di artisti o presunti tali.
