DIY project: make garden markers from paint stirrers (+ an easy way on how to transfer the text)

Sometimes it’s so hard to think of a good gift for someone you love. You want to give them something they will use and remember but they already have so much stuff. And to make it even worse: there is close to nothing on their wishlist. So what to do? Well, pick something they love to do and create something that helps them with it! This garden markers are a great example of just that. My dad loves his vegetable garden (I promise I will make pictures this summer, it’s really pretty) but I noticed he didn’t had any garden markers. So I decided to make him some for his birthday. I called my mom for a list of all the vegetables and bought a lot of paint stirrers. I love the end result and so did my dad. I think they will look great in his garden! continue reading

How to make doodle Easter eggs

Doodling really isn’t hard to do, even if you are not a great drawer. Here are a few tips to create great looking doodle Easter eggs:

1. Choose two or three basic shapes. As you can see my egg is mainly filled with the image of one flower and a leaf repeated all over the egg. If you choose just a few basic shapes your design will get a consistent look.

2. Fill up the egg enthirely with the basic shapes. Don’t worry about holes just yet.

3. Now tackle the holes in your design. Again; just choose one or two ways to fill the openings. I doodled swirls and dots. In the end your egg will have just 4 or 5 different shapes drawn on it. This gives a consistent but really pretty look!

Now go grab an egg and start doodling! XO Wilma

If not I might need to save some money for the real deal. These globes start at $215 excluding shipping. They are absolutely a real piece of art! XO Wilma
