DIY – Wrap watch

Make your own DIY version of a wrap watch! @By Wilma

I really wanted a wrap watch. I love the look of them! The only problem is: my budget is not that big right now. So today I decided to make one myself. I had an old watch clock lying around so that was perfect for this project. Of course you could also use a cheap watch from the store. Hope you like this project!

DIY – Nail polish painted cutlery

Paint mismatching cutlery with nail polish and make it a set. The nail polish will give it an enamel look! @ By Wilma

As many of you already know I really like to shop at thrift stores. I like to find vintage stuff or just stuff that I would normally pay a lot of money for and now get for almost no money. But some stuff I found there just ask for some updating. Like these mismatching cutlery. I love the vintage style. The spoon looks like it’s a birthday spoon. There is a date on the back: 12-1-1942. If it was a gift at birth  than that makes this spoon over 70 years old! Love things like that. I only paid 10 Euro cents for each piece. To make it a set I have a very easy tutorial for you on how to paint the base of this cutlery with nail polish! Why nail polish you may ask? Well, it’s strong plus it gives the metal an enamel look. Love that!

Recipe – Chocolate muffins with cream cheese filling

chocolate muffins with cream cheese filling recipe

I found this cool piece of baking equipment at the store. It creates a perfect hole in the center of a baked cupcake for filling with icing. It’s called a cupcake corer. Of course I needed to try how it worked so I made these chocolate muffins with cream cheese filling. I loved it! It’s so easy and it makes the muffins a lot more special.
