Safety First When Creating Sparkler Pictures
The most important step is insuring your safety and that of the people around you. Always make sure any children are closely supervised. Sparklers can reach temperatures above 1800 degrees Fahrenheit and need to be handled carefully. Continue Reading
It you’ve been a Curbly reader for a while, then you probably know that we love IKEA hacks. And if you’re new around here, then you’ll just have to take my word for it – we love IKEA hacks. Today we have a new one for you, and it’s super easy. Just grab a Kubbis coat rack and you’ll have a fun photo display in no time.
The Kubbis is tilted back instead of mounted on the wall… the photos lean up against the hooks, and are held in place by filing tabs – so easy! Continue Reading
When I first saw the photos for this DIY, all I could think about was how long it must have taken and how expensive all that film would be. Then, I actually read through the tutorial and realized I had been duped. This project is way easier than it looks, and a lot less expensive than I thought too. Why?
We all know how cute miniature photos are, but let’s talk about how awesome BIG can be. If you want to really make a visual impact with your photos, but don’t want to pay beaucoup bucks for a 48″ x 36″ print (plus the cost of a frame), this is the way to go. Mandy wanted a focal point above her girls’ dresser, and found a solution through an Engineer Print from her local print shop. Continue Reading
This hanging photo frame project is the creation of brilliant blogger and DIYer Annaleena Karlsson as part of her ongoing series with Emmas Designblogg. I love how the asymmetrical frames work together to create an unexpected (and truly unique) display. Continue Reading
Have you ever picked out a piece of furniture that you imagine will look great in your space and then once you get it home and situated, you think to yourself “What the heck was I thinking?” Well, I’ve discovered an iPhone app that will give you a good idea of what a piece will look like in your very own space. I chose the above chair, took a photo of the blank space in my office, emailed this to myself so I could show you. Continue Reading
They came from the dark, murky depths of Craigslist and part-time suburban realtor classifieds…Careless, cluttered, and often unbearable, these are, as the comments for this photo remind us, “these are the actual photos that sellers approve to market their homes.”
(Get ready to have too much fun!) Fold Play shows how to make a photo kaleidoscope (either hex or oct), which just might be one of the coolest–and free–ways to display your photos ever. Make one or a dozen and you’ll amaze not only your friends but yourself as well with your cleverness.
To make one, you’ll need:
Photos of your choice
An 8 1/2 x 11 piece of printer paper or lightweight card stock
A boning tool (optional, but I’d highly recommend it)
Glue (PVA works but rubber cement would be a better choice)
Another handy, simple and very needed trick to keep pictures and light mirrors hanging straight and staying straight.
Again, Mike at How I DIY solves a problem I’ve had forever.
All you do is add those little soft, rubbery bumpers to the backs of the pictures and mirrors. The bumpers grip the wall to eliminate swings and shifts and they keep the frame from scratching the paint. BRILLIANT! Click here for the entire post.
