Lightbulb Green House

unikatissima Lightbulb Green House

I found this tutorial on how to make a mini greenhouse from lightbulbs via art for housewives.
Somehow I don’t know how to cram the big plant into the small light.
;-))
Perhaps I better stick to the lightbulb window vase ;-)

Freeform Crochet Scarf

unikatissima Freeform Crochet Scarf

This is not my first freeform entry ;-))
In her blog entry Carla describes in detail how she’s making a freeform crochet scarf – from the choice of the yarns to the finishing. She only uses the most basic crochet stitches (chain stitch, single stitch, double stitch and triple stitch) and doesn’t use no scrumbles (those single pieces as e.g. at the freeform needlework that must be joined by sewing or crocheting).

I really have to try this! :)

Rolling Pin Prints

I found a tutorial on how to print with a rolling pin.
The idea is really great.

I couldn’t try it yet, but when I will, I want to try it with those ready-bought fun foam shapes.

Flour Glue

unikatissima Flour Glue

I already presented the Rice Glue, here is an instruction for making flour glue.
It seems that it can be used very good for paper or cardboard and if you increase the amount of the ingredients (and add a little turpentine) it seems that you even get wallpaper glue.

What I really appreciate is, that those glues are non-toxic, that I don’t have to buy stuff to make them and that the making doesn’t seem to be too tedious.
