The blog battle has begun! Look at these great DIYs!

So lets start the DIYs from your homes!
Thank you so much for sending us your great stuff. Unfortunately we wont be able to post them all.
These are our favorites.


Teri at sent us two really cool DIY.
The first one came in just in time for Christmas.
She filled hallow sphere ornaments with fun toys and kitschy stuff.

Tutorial here!


She also made these papier mache “Cone Puppets”
They look great and you can make them! see the tutorial here!


Land of meg sent us this great idea.

Meg bought a second hand jigsaw puzzle with some pieces missing.

Instead of throwing it out, she painted all the pieces red and glued a

small magnet onto the back of each one. And voilà!



Camilla took some old boxes for photo paper and covered them in vintage fabric. A thrifty way of keeping old letters and photos organized.



Szilvia had to cancel a trip o her family in Hungary last Christmas and stayed at home in her
small 28sqm apartment. So she wanted to find an alternative christmas decoration
and got influenced by retro ornaments.
Now she likes it so much that her aternative chistmas tree
(the branch) stays and get different ornaments depending on the season.

Jin Nilsson made this lamp for a friend who got married and got a kid! Favourite toys got
sprayed in white and glued toghether! Sweet!



Anna Karin got new life into this old coffe table with some wallpaper!

Lina is home with her 14 months old baby and wants to do more stuff but she doesn’t find the
time. She do show us this little  box and pearl decoration for daughter Floras room!



Hanna is into triangles and we like it as well!




Erika made this sweet pillow of bits and pieces!



Sofia and her husband made this lamp for their home. Simple and great!

    Wow, so much great ideas! I’m totally in love with the lamp on the 3th picture. The toy-frames are great too!

    I really love the wall lamp. Could someone please tell me how it was threaded through the holes? I really want to know, because I’d like to try something similar myself.
