Last days of my pregnancy are weird: days are passing by slowly and the sense of time has been suspended.

I feel like i live in a “bubble“.

Every time i perceive a different signal from my body i get nervous, but then nothing happens.

Who knows, maybe tonight the baby will come!

In the same time there is no doubt that my pregnancy since the beginning was great.

No pain or nausea at all, i’m still feeling very good and my belly as a pregnant is not heavy to carry.

I can say that last 9 months were probably the best of my life!

During the very last days i’m spending time for my blog and projects, i already know that i’ll have few time after he arrived.

Continuing with my last blog post about how to use cheap materials like clothespins, here are new photos of another DIY FRAME.

Have a look and leave me a note if you appreciate it.

The process  to make this tray is very simple, is explained in this previous post – just follow the link . The DIY frame  can be personalized as you prefer, with a photo or whatever you like.

In this option the frame is finished with a calligraphy i wrote using some Marvy Uchida markers, i love them!

There are many possibilities to use this DIY object, you can put it standing on a shelf or use it as a frame on a wall.

I like the colors and the contrast with my bedroom’s wall.

Have a look to the following links of other projects i made:

1- How to make a DIY FRAME

2- DIY hexagonal tray 

3- How to make a DIY TRAY

Enjoy & follow me!

Hi!

This new post is about “how to make a DIY TRAY” using cheep tools.

The process i followed to make this tray is very simple.

What you need :

  • glue
  • clothespins (the bigger ones you can find)
  • a cardboard (to use it as a support)
  • a nice picture you like or a photo to insert inside .

First of all make the support for the tray using a cardboard and cut it in the hexagonal shape. 

Don’t worry it will not be a “perfect hexagon” because of the singular shape of the clothespins.

Therefore insert and glue inside a picture you like. I choose a vintage map of my city Rome and to preserve it i put a transparent layer over it.

This one was a present for my brother that lives far away from Italy. The idea of Rome is perfect to remind him the period we spent together in this beautiful city.

The dimension of one side of the hexagon depends on the clothespins you use.

Usually one clothespin is about 10 cm, for this project i used two clothespins for each side.

The support and the picture has to be in the middle of the tray. To do that  make 4 layers of clothespins , two for each side.

This will make the tray more strong and with a good thickness.

The DIY frame  can be personalized as you prefer, with a photo or whatever you like.

There are many possibilities to use this DIY TRAY, you can put it standing on a shelf or use it as a frame on a wall.

This idea is almost similar to other two projects i made.

Have a look to the following links:

1- How to make a DIY FRAME

2- DIY hexagonal tray 

I have other many different ideas to share. I’ll show you soon another DIY project just using cheep materials like clothespins.

Just follow me!

Ciao!

I’m keep working on my last idea:  “how to make a DIY FRAME” using only cheep tools you can find in your home.

Following i’ll show you how to make a frame using only wooden clothespins in two different sizes.

I made my first experiment few months ago (see the picture above), you can find it on this page following this link.

The process is very easy, what you need : 

  • glue
  • clothespins (the bigger ones you can find)
  • a cardboard (to use it as a support)
  • a nice picture you like or a photo to insert inside the frame.

First make the support for the frame using a cardboard and cut it in the shape you like (hexagonal in my example).

The dimension of one side of the hexagon depends on the clothespins you use, usually is about 10 cm.

Than I choosed to place on the support as background a gorgeous paper with “happy” succulent house plants .

The paper brand is Bella BLVD (www.bellablvd.net) i found it in a special store named Paperness (Via Luca Valerio, 51-  Rome- Italy). 

Than separate each clothespins from the metallic support and start gluing them together as i show you following this link.

Finally I choosed to personalize the DIY frame with one calligraphy i made.

I used a permanet marker in a gold color on a transparent paper and i glued it on the frame.

The DIY frame  can be personalized as you prefer, with a photo of your summer holidays, a different paper or whatever you like.

But, what about the frame dimensions?

The size of the frame depends on the dimension of one single clothespins.

For example to make a bigger frame you have to use two clothespins for each side as the photo above:

I’ll show you how to make a bigger DIY in a different post that will come soon,

just follow me!
