easy DIY diamond string art 8

I have been on a DIY ride for some time. Well I am not the best at it, I have to admit. Some projects fumble and crumble right in front of my eyes coz i am too lazy to actually care too much :). But i love the simple fun 5-10 min projects preferably non messy.

So here is one of my really fun, easy peasy and non messy project which is an absolute delightful art addition to my home. I am in love with this diamond. And it took me no less than 10 mins to finish! Now who wouldn’t want that!!!

Here is how i did it!

Material:

  • one canvas: i used the small size
  • thread in choice of your color
  • needle
  • pencil and scale to sketch

Instructions:

1. sketch the diamond or any shape that you wish.

2. Thread the needle and get going.

4. Keep going! When you run out of thread simply loop it into the nearest knot. just avoid making a thread mess behind the canvas, coz it can overshadow your art.

mood board for black and white bedroom

You just cannot go wrong with black and white. You just can’t. Its like the rule of thumb. I came across this beautiful anonymous image of minimal black and white bedroom. And I couldn’t get over it. You can add layers and layers to it with art and photography and maybe color. Or you can just keep it simple bare plain without losing its touch!I am all for it!

Chalkboard Wall

 

As couple we often find polarized when it comes to making mutual decor decisions. So when my husband declared I was relieved when my husband said he wanted the living room feature wall to be chalkboard wall!!! Finallly!! I thought I wold never have one.

 

we have two feature walls in our living room + dinging room space. Me and my husband split it between each other. I was responsible for the dining room wall featured behind the frozen birthday party . And my husband was responsible for the tv display wall. For the dining room wall I was clear and concise it had to be stripes. The living room wall was open for experiment and what i had in mind was some maybe ombre or color block or CHALKBOARD! honestly i never thought my husband would pluck the nerve but he did!!

 

I have to admit i was pretty nervous when i first held up the chalk to the wall. to make things easier i broke it down into four sections.  I always loved the Dubai skyline and my husband wanted the algebra equation. The tv turned out to be our starting point becoz it had to be in the middle and to add frame to it was simply to make it a part of the feature wall. And MY feature wall had to have the typography or calligraphy whatever its called. I had soooo much fun fiddling around with chalk. The thing about chalk is that you even love the imperfections. 🙂

Frozen Birthday Party

This week we celebrated Inayah’s fifth birthday which is always event of the year at our place.. 🙂 To celebrate the birth of our precious daughter. This year it had to be a Frozen Party. That just seems to be the theme of the year or something. There is no one i know who cannot hum along to the frozen song “let it go”.. 😀

I stayed true to the theme with Olaf cake and snowflake decor. Did’nt go over the top but kept it cool with whites and blue hues. Vanilla ice cream shake was a huge hit. And so were the coconut cupcakes. The dessert Table was a huge hit. And I loved the dreamy look it all created and how well it blended with my black and white striped wall.

Another beautiful memorable party for my princess who seems to be growing up so fast. I had a blast creating it all and at the party. And the best part was it was smack on a budget. Full of fun and easy DIYs and  I am open to answering any queries and comments.
