Pretty up-cycled basket tutorial!!

bag
Here is a my pretty up-cycled basket tutorial!
Below are the pictured instructions and text to follow as well, 
if you don't understand something or have questions please let me know I will
do my best to answer all questions!




Ok so I have seen a lot of these up-cycled plastic bags, where you fuse the plastic bags together with wax paper and an iron, my tutorial starts after the actual fusing of the plastic bags so here is a tutorial for that here if you need it!
So lets add our own flair!!


Here are the steps that follow the pics have fun :)
1. I have fused my bags together and made sure that the edges are straight, ( I dont have an actual size because it could vary with your plastice bag fusing), but you do need:
-2 pieces that are the same size for the sides of the bag
- 1 piece for the bottom that is the same lenght as the two side pieces but 
not as wide
2. measureing all sides to make sure the are even and matching up to one another
3.&4. I  am adding  lace to the sides
to give it some pretty flair and I am measuring the sides of the plastic bags 
5. I am measuring my lace to fit the sides of my bag and then cutting to match
6. Lets Sew!
7. using my pins to mark put together the sides and the bottom 
8. sew all sides together inside out
9. Flip bag out, and you have your self a cute little basket...add straps and you have a pretty little up-cycled bag!


  
I hope you enjoy all this tutorial I will be making more and I will update you on my newest upcycled bags!!
Have a great day,

Diy Looked Over Items that will Spruce up your home! For Almost NOTHING!!

These looked over items, I run across a lot of and most the time they are shoved away, I thought may this would inspire you guys if you have some of these items to do some diy home decor! Enjoy the list!!


Green Door Diy:
I have seen so many doors tossed into attics and basements, because they are replaced by new plastic or metal ones, Yuck! I would rather keep the wood door, but sometimes they need replaced because they just cant serve there purpose anymore, well here are some great ways to still keep those old doors around and looking great!

Chalk board door! 


Make your own, at home even if you didnt have it hung as a door on a frame you could prop it agianst the wall and still use it as a chalkboard for kiddos. Chalkboard paint is EXPENSIVE, so here is a homemade recipe too for making your own Chalkboard paint!

 {YEA EXTRA TUTORIAL} MAKE YOUR OWN CHALKBOARD PAINT!!!
Supplies: 1/2 cup acrylic paint (choose any color you like, or mix colors together to make the perfect shade!), 1 tablespoon unsanded grout (this can be purchased at most hardware/home improvement stores, we got ours at Home Depot), mixing cup or bowl, spoon, paint brush and an object or board you plan to paint on.
1. Measure out your paint and grout. The unsanded grout is a fine powder so be sure to work in a well ventilated area.
2. Stir the grout into the paint until no lumps remain. 3. Paint your surface with your new custom chalkboard paint! The paint will begin to harden once it is mixed, so only mix what you need at one time as it won't store as well as other paints.
Once your chalkboard has fully dried be sure to slate the surface before using it for the first time. To slate a chalkboard lightly rub chalk along the surface and then lightly rub it off.
