Shabby chic: My un-boho half. The video (above) on Studio 5 is about creating your own shabby nest for home spring decor. Aqua hues & shabby colors all come together to turn items like chicken wire and ribbon into the cutest of table accessories.
Matchboxes and tins can get a shabby, imperfect update. These lovely designs (above & below) are by: tinkeredtreasures on Etsy.
This is a cute mason jar update idea by theglitzypear.blogspot.com: Upcycling vintage music sheets, a mason jar, and paper & fabric scraps.
The rustic & the beautiful. Roosters can always make home feel like home!
Mason jars can be upcycled into so many things… including this lovely Mason Jar Sewing Kit from Anthropologie:
A little bit of boho. Upcycled Indian chairs found at Plumo.
Plastic animal DIYs. The first one (up) is a pincushion made around a plastic lama; “Craft Tutorial; Plastic Animal Pin Cushion” tutorial found at Small Good Things, who also made the next animal craft thingy.
This lamb used to look like this (below) before it got a smart makeover, right here.
My favorite is this ring jewelry holder made from plastic cats, who received a nice touch up by Small Good Things.
They can be attached to push pins, too!
Now here is another great idea: Repurposing plastic animals to create an all-heads animal jewelry holder… like this one.

I just found this great tutorial for transferring photos onto fabric - economically. Summary:
Homemade “mixture” to get more vibrant colors when printing on fabric: Mix 2 tablespoons of Alum (found in the spice section of your grocery store), 2 1/2 teaspoons of Washing Soda (found in the laundry section) and 1/2 teaspoon of liquid fabric softener. Then add one cup of hot water. Soak 100% cotton in this for 15 minutes. Dry. Iron on freezer paper - sticky side onto fabric. Stick in the printer; fabric side up.
For More Detail, Here is an Edited Excerpt from the Tutorial I Found at infarrantlycreative.net (for Full Tutorial, go to the same link):
Custom Bean Bags
Did you know you don’t have to buy those fancy schmancy fabric printer sheets to have quality printed fabric? Did you know you don’t have to buy that fancy schmancy solution to soak your own fabric in beforehand? Here is a quick no-fail recipe to get the best results with the most vibrant colors when printing on fabric…
After fifteen minutes is up wring out all the excess liquid.
Wait!!! Can’t I just print it out on fabric since the bean bags won’t be washed? The solution gives you more vibrant colors and if they should get wet they won’t bleed. This recipe is perfect for quilters who want to add pictures to their work as well.
Store the remaining solution in a container and mark it well to use at a later date.
