Today I want to show you my Leaf art made out of thread and nails. I love crafting and especially all different kind of craft. Sometimes I get my own ideas and sometimes I just want to make something I have seen somewhere else. Like this Leaf art I found on Pinterest right here. I thought it looked amazing and wanted to try to make this leaf for a long time. Now I finally did, and I must admit that it was not as easy as I thought it would be.

Everywhere here in Holland you can find these kind of…

DIY Concrete lamp I got this great idea for pimping my old Ikea lamp from Pinterest and I wanted to try it myself.

The lamp that I have from Ikea is very light of weight and only need a thin layer of concrete all over so I imagine that it would be an easy project to do. I must admit that I have never worked with concrete before. You see a lot of great DIY’s everywhere with concrete and I have for a while wanted to try different thing out with that material and this will be my first project. This is what you need for making…
