DIY Rustic Box

Hello again! The Spring is almost here, well actually not for everyone (sorry Australia) but for those of you who live in Northern Hemisphere – happy Springtime! So spring cleaning is pretty essential part of the Spring but why not give a new and rustic touch to your rooms with some new design elements, such as DIY boxes. If you live in Estonia or anywhere else in Northern Europe you know that tangerines are super popular fruits in Christmastime and that they are often packaged into small wooden boxes. One of these boxes is the one that we used for our DIY box project. And honestly there’s only one thing that you have to do – paint it!

We used black acrylic color that can be used for canvas metal, wood, wall etc. You can choose whatever color you like but we went with simple yet sophisticated black. It is from an Italian company called Maimeri and the color’s precise name is Carbon Black. By the way, we looked from H&M’s website that they offer wooden boxes that look a little similar to the one we made but H&M offers them from 14,99 euros while ours didn’t even cost a half of that price – wooden box itself was “free” since it is actually just packaging and acrylic color cost about 5 euros. So you can achieve an awesome look and practicality for very cheap price and by recycling. You can use this box as storage box or also for growing your own windowsill herbs. We’re sure it’ll look great!

 

HEART-SHAPED CINNAMON ROLLS

Valentines Day is just around the corner and everything heart-shaped should be on trend now, right? Well as you know we like to be really honest with you in everything we do so these cinnamon rolls didn’t come out exactly as beautiful as in picture from Pinterest but they taste just heavenly! Here is the example from Pinterest although we used another dough recipe.

Here is the recipe we used.

Dough-

  • 500 ml milk
  • 50 g instant yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 cup flour
  • 180 g melted butter

Cinnamon filling-

  • 80 g melted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 tbs cinnamon

Additional-

  • 1 egg whisked

Heat the milk but remove it just before boiling. Mix all dry ingredients-flour, yeast, salt and sugar-in a bowl. Add butter and milk and mix well. Knead the dough until it’s workable and doesn’t stick to your hands anymore. You might need to add some more flour. Cover and let it rise for about an hour. For cinnamon filling just mix all the ingredients – butter, sugar and cinnamon – together. After the dough has risen roll it to rectangle on floured counter or table. Brush the rolled dough evenly with cinnamon filling. Start rolling the dough from both longer sides of rectangle  until they form a heart-shape.  Brush the rolls with whisked egg. Bake cinnamon rolls at 350°F or 180°C  for 15 minutes until they’re lightly brown.

Who knows, maybe one of these ideas is a reality in your own living room already next year.                                                                         When it comes to Christmas trees, it does not matter what size or height it is. The most important is the joy that comes from decorating it and later enjoying it’s beauty and smell.                                                                                                                       If you would like to aim for Scandinavian style, then use white or lighter coloured decorations and remember- less is more!                                                                            If you like bright colours, go for it! Red, pink, blue and violet will bring out the happy and festive feeling and there is never too much happiness and festiveness!  You may also go for classical golden and silver decorations, which will never go out of style.
