YOYO Embellished Head band tute

My kids have recently started using head bands instead of pony tails so i made some cute head bands for them i will share them one by one with you all.

the things you will need
  • 1 large YOYO in maroon velvet
  • 1 smaller yoyo in white silk
  • two scrappy strips of white net
  • a vintage button
  • needle and thread

its pretty simple just stitch the white yoyo on top of the velvet one

sew running stitch along one side of the net strips ,pull and secure thread before breaking it off.

stitch the two net fan like shapes at the back of the maroon yoyo and stick this whole thing with the head band thats it friends all done :) hope you like it .a perfect match for the dress ! see how happy she is MahsaAllah:)

Flower arrangement on a dry root

Hi friends hows life i am back again to share an other simple arrangement i have made on the dry root ,Yup its the one i was talking about yesterday so hear is a glance of it as i promised .

Its a pretty simple arrangement and hardly took 10 minutes to finish ,i kept it simple as the root it self has a very interesting shape so did not want the flowers to act as a distraction .
All I did was that i hot glued the flowers in place and then added some white beads hear and there to add some further life to the dull root .As i mentioned yesterday i found this root in a dam covered with mud i brought it home scrubbed it clean sun dried it and gave it two coats of varnish to preserve it ,and by the way this root is with me from the last 12 years i found it before my marriage ,and since then i have decorated it in different styles but sadly never took any pictures back then :( {i never knew i will start blogging one day :) } .That's it for today my friends wish you a very happy,healthy and blessed day .

Fish glob dry arrangement

Good day friends how r u all :).Well as you all know its the month of Ramadan and Iftar Parties are on,and yesterday we had one at my place so while cooking and preparing for the
Iftar i was also decorating our sitting area which have a beautiful triangular fire place .There used to be a fish glob settled there with real gold fish in it once! and they use to look so pretty there adding life to room but sadly they died and after words we bought many more goldfishes but some how none of them survived in the glob so we had to let go of the idea :( but yesterday suddenly this new decorative idea popped into my mind that why dont i arrange a bunch of artificial flowersinside it, so after some trials i was finally happy with the
presented look :) how do you find it ?

all i did is that i bend the stem of the bunch and taped it with the marble surface and inverted the fish glob over it .To insert the bunch inside the globe i softly hold the flowers and leaves close to each other so that they can pass through the tiny opening of the glob without damaging the shape of the bunch.That was the main part and then to add some more interesting look to the arrangement i added some cones and a dried root to it

i found these cones (and these are not pine cones) in NathiaGali a beautiful hilly station near Maree and frankly i still dont know the name of the tree they are from :)

and this snake like root along with another one was found in a dam in my city they were full of mud but i loved the look of it so brought them home washed and painted some wood varnish over them .In my next post i will show you another easy arrangement that i made with the other root .So stay tuned

You may also use some thing else to decorate the surroundings as for example some lacquer sprayed pebbles of different sizes or may be glass pebbles or some corals and sea shells it totally depends on you and the colors scheme of your room ........ have fun :)

The Wash Basin Tap Revamp

Hello dear friends how r u all ,today's post is a simple idea to improve the look of old wash basin Tap Valves .No! dont have to be a plumber for that, neither you need heavy tools like giant sized ranches ,screw drivers etc ,all you need is a some news paper and some spray paint thats it .
Wana know how to do this ?

OK hears the embarrassing "before picture" of our wash basin Tap some how the moisture and dust have entered in between the two layers of the valves giving it a very ugly and dirty look and the interesting thing is that it can not be disassembled or opened so that we can clean it out :( now the only solution left is to change the tap valves but unfortunately its an old design and spare parts are not available for this one so we either had to change the tap it self or just keep it as it is but i was not happy either way so thats what i did.

I tore long strips of news paper dipped them in water and then warped the tap stem and covered the area of wall and basin around the tap .The reason i dipped the news paper in water was that it makes the wrapping really easy and manageable, that not all wet news paper would temporarily stick to what ever surface it comes in contact with so it was really easy to cover the back wall and parts of basin.

Dry the valves with tissue paper and spray paint them with the coordinating color with your sanitary,let dry for half an hour and give it an other coat of spray paint and again leave to dry . Remove the news paper,if some paint accidentally leaked through the news paper ,no worries ! it can be very easily rubbed clean with paint Thinner.

there my new clean tap valves :) hope you liked them too!
