Love this great little DIY from A Pair And A Spare to make handy (and on trend) little concrete desk organisers.
It’s a simple and straight forward tutorial and can be adapted for your needs – just change the size or shape of the moulds.

home: event [ vintage plate up cycling ]
A date for the diary if you want to give a new lease of life to old crockery. Get creative at these up cycling workshops at Heals. Book in for one of the two available September dates via Eventbrite
Give life to your vintage china in our upcycling class at Heals. First choose a pre-loved plate or teacup from The Indytute’s very special vintage china collection. Each piece has been rooted out by the Indytute china scout, who has scoured garage sales, antique stalls and junk shops to select the ideal pieces to upcycle. The idea of this workshop is to give you plate a new lease of life and turn it into a work of art you might spot in Harvey Nics. These plates make great presents and they also make a shelf very happy
home: made [ basket ]
We’ve just discovered A Kailo Chic Life blog and already in love. Such great projects, DIYs, ideas and interiors.
Our favourite pick is this project to decorate a basic felt basket with a weave and tassle look. It’s creative, colourful and makes a eclectic boho look.
Try Made, Amazon, and other online homeware stores for felt woven baskets that can act as the base for this DIY.

home: made [ cane candle holder ]
This lovely little project is perfect for this time of year and is on trend with the current 70s resurgence.
Abeautifulmess.com takes you through the steps to create these candle holders using glass hurricane holders and caning rolls.
These candle holders are great to make in different sizes and place in large groups. You can also take them outside for candle lit evenings.
home: made [ tie dye bedding ]
With marble still being a strong trend, why not try tie dying at home in black and white to create a similar monochrome look.
It’s simple and effective and all you need is the dye and some cotton plain bedding.
Try John Lewis, Argos or Dunelm for great plain bedding.
We love this effective method from HonestlyWTF but also our favourite A Beautiful Mess has a great tutorial too.
home: made [ stencilled walls ]
If you love the look of modern patterned wallpapers – dots, arrows, paint daubs, triangles, or Victorian and Moroccan prints – but need a more affordable options, try stencilling.
There’s been a huge rise in modern style stencils available, especially on Etsy, that offer an affordable creative way to achieve great feature designs on a wall without having to use wallpaper.
The advantage is it’s easy to change as you can paint straight over the paint, as opposed to painting over wall paper or stripping the wallpaper!
