Easy Spice Rack

DIY Tutorial: 5-minute EASY Spice Rack | @onelmon

Let’s take a break from Halloween crafts for a while to organize the kitchen today! I’ve been experimenting a lot lately, not just in my crafting table but also in the kitchen. I’m not a cooking expert and honestly, all I know is just making a toast. But a simple toast is boring if you have it everyday, so I’ve been buying spices and mixing them up on top of my toast just to see how they turn out. Glad to say, no funny and inedible toast so far ;) With the increasing number of spices I purchased, I know I need to organize them somehow and with just three things, I whipped up this super easy and quick fix!

String Art Spider Web

DIY Tutorial: String Art Spider Web | @onelmon

I’ve been meaning to try doing string art on my own after seeing a lot of home-decor string art pieces in Pinterest but I have no clue what to make. I was wondering if I should make a monogram, a silhouette, a landscape or something else and soon I totally forgot about it. Just in time for Halloween season, I surfed around Pinterest again for Halloween inspirations and saw a lot of spider craft tutorials. And that’s when I know what to make for my Halloween home-decor. String art spider web it is! Continue reading

Shorts Drawstring Bag

DIY Tutorial: Shorts Drawstring Bag | @onelmon

Okay, this is my first time cutting up my clothes so I was a bit scared when I made this. Although I was using a shorts that I have been wearing at home three times a week for a year (yeah, it’s pretty worn out), I was still nervous about it. Anyhow, I overcame that fear and did it anyway; thinking that summer is over, and this summer-looking worn out shorts is going to be either kept inside the box and never be seen again or thrown away. I decided to upcycle it into a bag and actually satisfied with the result. Here goes the how-to! Continue reading

Clip-on Card Holder

DIY Tutorial: Clip-on Card Holder | @onelmon

I’m a fan of backpack bags and I use mine everyday! I prefer using a backpack because it can balance the weight on both my shoulders and it’s more unlikely to fall off. But, the downside of the bag is that whenever I need my wallet or my commuter pass, I’ll need to take it off before I can look for what I want, which is kind of frustrating sometimes when I’m in a rush (mine is a zipper type with a fold-over, double frustration!). And so I made this simple card holder to hold my train pass that I can just clip it on my backpack strap. Continue reading

Sanding Brush

DIY Tutorial: Sanding Brush | @onelmon

Today’s post is more like a tip rather than a craft. Do you use sandpaper a lot when you are making your artwork or craft? I recently use it a lot and I was taught how to make sanding easier so that you won’t hurt your finger… and the sandpaper. The trick is really simple, you just need to paste your sandpaper onto something flat. But as I think it’s a bit hard to hold, I add a handle to it so I can use it even easier. Here goes your sanding brush! Continue reading
