Why Blogging is Freaking Hard and DIY Jute Rope Coasters

Hi! Yes, YOU there! Nice to meet you and thanks for stopping by!

So this has been the first week of 2017 when we missed one of our publishing day’s. First of all, we’re sorry. It’s kind of hard to keep on posting when there aren’t many readers or engagement on blog. If you’ve ever had a blog you probably know what we’re talking about. Yeah, sometimes it’s hard to find motivation… But like Darren Rowse has said-“If you have just one reader and your blog changes their life your blog is big enough.”

DIY today is pretty self explanatory – you just have to hot glue sisal rope to a spiral and then you have awesome and rustic coasters. Very easy, it probably the easiest and most nailed Pinterest projects we’ve done so far. Do we recommend doing it? Absolutely!

Have a nice one!

DIY Braided Headphones

Do you own a pair of headphones? If you have a smartphone and aren’t centuries old you’ll probably own at least one pair. And we all know what’s the biggest inconvenience related to headphones (though you Apple lovers don’t have it anymore)-it’s tangled headphone cords! But wait, there’s a solution-you can braid your headphones so that they’ll never ever will be tangled again. You could of course buy yourself a pair of non-tangling headphones but that’s so depersonalized and well simply boring. And besides you already own a pair of problematic headphones anyway.

So all you really need are-

  • headphones
  • embroidery floss
  • scissors.

  1. So firstly, wrap embroidery floss around the top of your headphone cord and then tie a knot.
  2.  Now you’ll start doing Chinese staircase pattern to your cord. Start by making a number 4 with your floss. You have to bring the string over the top of your cord to make a 4.
  3.  Take the rest of your floss and wrap it underneath the cord and through the loop. Then just pull your floss up and tighten it around your headphone cord.

By doing these steps the staircase pattern should emerge by itself. Repeat the steps until all 3 cords are braided. You have to make all 3 cords separately, in case you were wondering. You can click here and see even easier explanation how to make Chinese staircase pattern if this instruction was too difficult to understand.

Your skills of braiding will improve with time. The cord on the right is from the beginning and the left one is made later. Just make sure to tighten it around the cord really tightly then it will look more beautiful. And finally, it was pretty relaxing to make this braided headphone but braiding will take about 2-4 hours so it’s reasonable to make it over couple of days.

 

DIY Toilet Paper Roll Wreath

Do you have a large family? No? Well, when you would have, you would know how many piles of laundry, dishes and also garbage comes in relation to having a big family. It might be TMI but also (toilet) paper rolls build up over time and they seem really useless so we throw them away. But this time we tried to be a little more creative with them and through that show some respect to the Earth since paper is made of wood after all. So we were driven by the concept of “SAVE THE TREES”, which is a great idea no matter what! But sometimes great ideas and intentions don’t exactly deliver the outcome that you had in your mind at the start. And that is exactly what happened this time.
We saw many interesting craft ideas with toilet paper rolls on Pinterest but all the ideas seemed kind of dumb. Lastly we decided to make a wreath. Weird idea, isn’t it? Where or why would we ever use a Wreath that is made of toilet paper rolls?! Well too bad that we didn’t think about it before we started making it! 😀 Now it just collects dust on the shelf. Honestly it seems like toilet would be the only room that it would suit, so back to where it belongs (haha). The Circle of Life!

So here are some beautiful photos of wreaths that we took as our examples-

And here is ours-

It looks kind of okay (right?) and is pretty easy to make by just glueing together with hot glue gun but it is pretty useless. So we guess it wasn’t a fail but not a success either. Mediocre would be the perfect word to describe it.

We’ll be back on Friday with new post so make sure to come back then!
