1  Flower Lights for Room Decor in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by NonaChewy on: July 01, 2014 08:17:01 PM
I've been redoing my room lately, so that means taking down old wall decor. Some of them have been adorning my walls for years, and I just wanted something new. So I did this to brighten up my room (literally) while reminding me of summer  Grin


It was really easy to do too! I bought all the flowers at my local Walmart (super cheap! under $5 for all) and the lights were ones from Christmas time. I loved the lights alone, but I wanted a cool way to display my photos too, so I thought why not make these lights have more than one purpose? Cool

2  Paper Flowers in Valentine's Day by NonaChewy on: February 03, 2014 07:45:07 AM
Last year my boyfriend gifted me some beautiful paper roses that are still up in my room! Unlike real flowers, they haven't wilted or anything Cheesy Being inspired, I decided to make some of my own but this time much bigger!



I decided to mix 'n match the colors to make it look unique. I was able to make 5 big flowers for under $10!

Here's my blog post on it: http://www.nonachewy.blogspot.com/2014/02/diy-paper-flowers.html

And exactly how I did it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAfnp8rfi5Q&list=UUKG-jm3WFlJg2GAJg0PgaWg&feature=c4-overview

I've wanted velvet loafers for some time now and I finally found them at Kohl's. They were looking a bit plain to me so I decided to 'stache them up LOL! The whole project was about $15 including the loafers  Grin

9  Magazine Flats in Shoes: Completed Projects by NonaChewy on: August 11, 2013 10:56:11 AM
I came across comic book shoes not too long ago and thought they were such a cool idea. Sadly, I don't have any comic books  Sad. So instead, I was inspired and used magazines instead because I have plenty of those lying around. This was also my first time using Mod Podge, so things did get messy LOL  Cheesy This DIY really did give my old flats the makeover they needed though  Smiley

10  Monkey Earphone/Cord Holder in Completed Projects by NonaChewy on: August 04, 2013 01:03:26 PM


I made this little guy after getting frustrated with my earphones going crazy in my bag. Since I have a lot of felt, I decided to mainly use that. He only took me under 15 minutes to make (maybe even 10).

What I used:


I already had everything (brown felt, tan felt, hot glue gun, scissors, and googly eyes) except the velcro circle stickers (actually called hook and loop fasteners). I purchased the velcro circle stickers at the dollar store.

I also have a template I drew out to make cutting out the shapes easier. I do have it up on my blog here: http://www.nonachewy.blogspot.com/2013/08/diy-animal-earphone-holder-pt-1-monkey.html



First, I cut out all of the necessary shapes. Then I just placed them accordingly and glued them down. The only hard part was cutting out the eyebrows and mouth from the fuzzy velcro because it had adhesive on the back, but other than that everything was pretty simple. Mr. Monkey really does do a great job at keeping my earphones in check LOL. I also made him some friends:
 
Mr. Polar Bear, Mr. Duck, and Mr. Hippo! They have to deal with my other cords  Wink

You can watch how I did this DIY here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0vu760yePE
