• DIY: Smash!

    What: Yarn sign Supplies: Yarn, iron wire, ‘knitters spool’ (punnik-set in Dutch). Duration: 1 – 2 hours How to: Use your spool to knit a long thread, which you will use to shape your sign with. In Dutch it is known as ‘punniken’ and I have not come across a proper English translation of the word. However, it’s just like loom-knitting in mini form. It’s very easy and once you get the hang of it, it goes rather quickly. Make sure your thread is long enough to write the word you wish. I added the iron wire afterwards. This is of course done so your writing will remain in place.…

  • DIY: Daybed with storage

    If you’ve been following my blog and my Instagram for a while, then you have undoubtedly seen our daybed. My husband and I built it when I was pregnant of our second daughter. Now, I must admit that I’ve made many bad interior decisions when I was preggo with her, but this wasn’t one of them! I have done countless naps on it during my third trimester and I love to do my (school-) reading on it. The girls also sit and read on it, so adorable to see! It is a little on the low side, so even the youngest one (she is 1,5 years old) can crawl on…

    What: Winter wonderland guirlande for above the Christmas table. Supplies: Branch, string lights, (fish-) string, screws or small hooks, pine branches, pine cones, stars or other types of decorations. Duration: 45 minutes. How to: Find or buy a large branch. We found ours in our favorite nature area and it is about 3 meters long.  Wrap your string lights around it. Attach to the ceiling with a string, by binding it to the screws/hooks you’ve screwed into it beforehand. We used fish string to give the branch a floating effect and because it can bear a lot of weight. Don’t hang it too low, because you will not be able…

    What: Melted hama beads. Supplies: Hama beads, cookie cutters, baking paper, oil, pencil for dispersing the oil, glue gun or super glue, strings. Duration: 20 minutes. How to: Yes! You finally get to melt your kids’ toys! So get going and preheat your oven to 200 degrees (celsius). Cover your cookies cutters in oil. Be thorough! Otherwise the beads will get stuck and then you have to cut them loose, which takes ages and ruins your cutters (I speak from experience, because I got lazy when making the second batch). Fill the forms up with beads. Make sure you don’t fill them all the way to the top, then the beads might…
