Spraypainting Accessories

flickr OutsaPop Spraypainting Accessories

A great idea again: customize accessories to your clothes with spray paints.
This way you can make i.e. comfortable shoes for dancing matching your ball dress ;-)
Or follow the ideas of Buy Nothing Day and revamp a by now shabby handbag to match your newest coat.
You also could have coloured one of your boots in red and fill it with some sweets ;-))

Home-built 3-D Printer

evilmadscientist Solid Freeform Fabrication

Evil Mad Scientist is always good for a surprise.
He presented a kind of home-built 3-D printer which works with sugar!
Great to make your Christmas tree ornaments ;-))

I really don’t think that I will build such an item, but I found it very interesting ;-)

Knitted Slippers

unikatissima Knitted Slippers

Not long ago my mother mentioned that she would like to have some slippers for Christmas because she has always cold feet.
When I read a very similar sentence at craftster in a thread, I knew immediately: that will be my Christmas gift.
The instruction is fine, on the photo you see my sketch for the sizes.
But I still have to buy the appropriate yarn.

P.S.: The specific point at the instruction is, that this is no ‘normal’ sock knitting, but it is about a sewn sock.

Cold Porcelaine

espritcabane Cold Porcelaine

With the recipe for cold porcelaine you can mix an air-drying clay with which you can make jewelry, beads and similar things.
I find air-drying a big advantage against fimo and similar polymer clays which have to be baked. I always need a good ventilation for the baking which I find hard to realize with cold weather.
And you can put the jewelry or the beads i.e. into the advent calendar boxes :)
