DIY Deadpool Themed Jean Jacket

IMG_0580

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you a really awesome DIY project I had been working on for the new release of Deadpool 2. I really wanted to wear something that showed my love for Deadpool, but not dress up in costume. I compromised on this jean jacket and at the end of it all I had such a great time watching Deadpool 2.

IMG_0529Step One:

Use a jacket you already have, or find one at the thrift store or at your local retail store that maybe on clearance. I wanted to add more texture to my jacket and decide to spray paint it and sponge on some white paint all over it (this step can be optional).

Step two:

Buy a assortment of iron on patches and place them in the areas you feel work best with the jacket. I also purchased iron on letters and numbers to add Deadpool’s last name and the year the comic was created.

Step Three:

Follow the directions on each of the patches and apply heat. You can also use fabric glue to apply the patches if you don’t own a iron.

(Optional) Step Four:

My iron on letters had me peel off the plastic bit off of them to complete my look.

The finished product!

This DIY was so much fun to create and I am so excited to try to create more wearable DIY’s in the future. I hope you all enjoyed.

Are any of you Deadpool fans? How about any other superhero?

Have a great weekend!

Spring Wreath DIY

IMG_0050

Happy Monday Everyone! 

Today I am sharing with you one of my first spring DIYs. I started this DIY last year and never actually finished it. Call me level 10 procrastinator, but sometimes things happen and you have to put projects away until next year and that is exactly what happened. All of the supplies I use are actually very affordable. The flowers come from the dollar store and the wire base comes from Walmart for a few bucks. I used floral wire and my glue gun to secure it in place.

Have a great day! See you on Wednesday.

Si Se Pudo – Graduation Cap

M-31

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you all a closer look at my graduation cap. I have been working on this bad boy for the last month and I finally got it all together. I am absolutely in love with it. I hope this serves as inspiration for anyone looking to make something similar.

What you will need:

Graduation Cap

Your choice of scrapbook paper for background and letter

A border of your choosing (I used a pearl border used for scrap booking)

A custom bow found here.

Small figurines for decoration (purchased at the craft store)

M-62

M-9

M-8

M-7

M-60

Honestly, this was a bit of a trial and error type of DIY and I suggest you practice before you start working on the actual material you are going to use. I used stencils for the letter and hot glued the rest of the items on.

Hopefully this is helpful!

Good luck.

A few things I learned about this wreath: you will need a lot of time to complete this. At time painting the coffee filter edges will seem like a never ending task, but keep going. Overall I love the way this looks and you can’t beat the cost of it.

Have a great day!

Apartment Decorations: A Fall Mantel

IMG_9808

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you all how I brought fall into my apartment with a few simple things from the craft store and some Pinterest ideas. This is a very simple and easy way to add some spice to your mantel if you have one in your place.

IMG_9801

Here is what you will need:

– Paper Pad with Fall/ Halloween designs

-Twine

-Tape

-Fake Flowers

-LED Candles

-A Fall garland

Cut all of your pre-cut square paper in half to create the size of triangles you want and attach them to the twine with tape or if you wish glue and secure the ends when done to prevent them from falling off.

Then add other pieces to add color and texture to your mantel. I placed some candles and a few pumpkins I found at the craft store and I got a very cute mantel that was perfect until winter hits. The best part is you can recreate this for any season!

See you all on Friday. Have a great week!
