Here’s how to make DIYs for the perfect cosy night in. . .

DIY #1

Mini Ticket Invites

A few little invites to your night-in, with teeny clay labels!

You Will Need . . .

  • Plain Card
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Fineliner Pen
  • Gold Pen (or coloured pen)
  • String/thread
  • Polymer clay/oven bake clay
  • Metal loop

How to Make it . . .

First, to make the tickets, use a pencil on card to draw out the shape of a mini ticket – this is basically a rectangle with round bits cut out of the corners! Then carefully cut around them with scissors…

img_7919img_7921

Next you want to use a pen (any colour) to draw a border around the edge.

img_7922img_7923img_7924

Now you can fill the tickets in with whatever you like! Whether it is words saying ‘please come to my cosy film night’, or just a few doodles and words that explain about the evening-get creative! I did a few different designs, then after I used a gold gel pen to add details:

Feel free to just leave the invites as they are, but if you wish to add a teeny clay label, then follow these steps!

Roll a tiny piece of black clay into a ball, and from there mould it into a label shape with a point at one end.

You can gently push a metal loop into the end and make a circle indent with a pencil at the top too.

Bake the little labels in the oven for ten minutes at 100 degrees. Leave to cool!

Next, tape or glue a small bit of thread to the back of the tickets.

img_7929img_7931

When the clay is ready, thread it on to the string and secure the other end of the thread to the back of the ticket aswell…

I also added a label out of card and wrote a name on it. Attach it with PVA glue!

DIY #2

DIY Yoghurt Pot Snack Tubs

These lovely tubs have to be one of my personal faves for storing tasty treats in!

img_7905img_7911

You Will Need . . .

  • Plain paper/card
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Black pen

img_7874

How to make them. . .

To start, use scissors to carefully cut a circle around the top of the yoghurt pot, leaving a little rim. You also want to make sure the yoghurt pots are clean first.

img_7875img_7876

Then cut strips of paper that are as tall as the pot, and quite long. I used two strips for each tub so that you couldn’t see the yoghurt labels through!

img_7877img_7878

Glue both ends of the strip and wrap around the tub.

img_7879img_7880img_7881

Now you can use a fineliner to draw your designs! I chose some sleepy eyes with Zs, stars and stripes for my pots, but do whatever designs you wish!

img_7882img_7883img_7884

And you are all done! The perfect little snack tubs for when you get peckish! I lined them with a small square of kitchen roll- and they were good to go!

DIY #3

‘Fluffy Socks and Hot Chocolate’ Print

I wasn’t sure how this would turn out at the start, but I am so happy with the result!

 

img_7915

You Will Need . . .

  • Plain paper/card
  • Pencil
  • Black pen
  • Gold gel pen
  • Rubber
  • Scissors
  • Cardboard (I used a cereal box)
  • Black acrylic paint
  • Paintbrush

img_7885

How to make it . . .

First, divide a piece of A4 paper in half with scissors carefully. Keep both halves!

img_7887

Then sketch out in pencil the writing, in a font you like. I chose ‘ Fluffy socks and Hot chocolate’ because the theme of these DIYs is ‘cosy night-ins’!

img_7888img_7889img_7890

When you are happy and confident with your font, go ahead and use a black pen to go over the pencil. My hand was shaking because I didn’t want to mess this stage up! πŸ˜‰

img_7893img_7894

This bit is optional, but I chose to draw a little gold heart at the top-and it looks so cute!

img_7897img_7898img_7895

Next for the frame border-use a pencil to trace around the edge of the paper on to card.

img_7899

Now you want to carefully cut around the line, leaving a couple of centimetres border. Try to make your lines as straight as possible!

img_7900

Then go in with some black acrylic paint and cover the whole edge with it – you don’t really need to bother painting the centre.

Leave to dry!

img_7901

img_7902img_7903

When it has completely dried, glue the plain half of paper to the centre of the black frame. (This is so that you can’t see any black paint through the paper) and then glue the half with the writing on down on top of it.

img_7904img_7912

Yay-all finished! I love this print, and it is going up on my wall next to the cactus photo display I made! I think this is just perfect for a cosy evening!

DIY #4

Fox Pamper Box

I mean, come on-is there anything cuter?

diy-fox-cardboard-box

You Will Need . . .

  • Cardboard box (or cardboard made into a box shape)
  • Scissors
  • Paper
  • Masking tape
  • Pencil
  • Paintbrush
  • Yellow and red acrylic paint (or orange)
  • Card
  • Tape/glue

img_7943

How to make it . . .

First of all, you want to make sure your box has no top, or fold the flaps in so it is a box without a lid.

img_7944img_7945

To make it easier to paint on, you can glue squares and rectangles of paper to the sides, and maksing tape the edges like I did, or skip this stage if you don’t need to!

img_7946

Then use a pencil to sketch out your fox design (or whatever animal you choose!). This includes a nose roughly in the middle, with two lines diagonally upwards, and carrying on for both sides too.

img_7947img_7948

Now mix some orange acrylic paint on a paint palette or scrap of cardboard and apply it to the top half of the fox head. Paint a strip of card with the leftover paint too.

img_7949

For the little black nose, you can either paint a bit of card and cut out a nose shape, or if you have black card, cut one out from there! I painted with paint, and it looked just as good!

Let this paint completely air dry. Or if you’re impatient like me, leave it by a radiator and keep checking it until it’s dry!

img_7950img_7951

Stick the nose to the end of the orange point…

img_7952

Now cut two triangle ear shapes out of the bit of card you painted orange.

img_7953img_7954

Use tape on the backs of the ears to stick them to the top of the box! Cute!

img_7955

Now for my favourite part! – Outline the orange and add two sleepy eyes with eyelashes if you wish! He now looks a lot cuter! πŸ˜‰

img_7956img_7957img_7958img_7960

Your pamper box is all finished, now just to cram it full of pamper beauty goodies! I put my deelicious bath salts and body creams, how about putting nail polishes and bath bombs in it too? Perfect for a pamper session in your cosy evening time!
