Tutorial Tuesday: Multipurpose Snake Accessory

Hey everyone! New year, new goals for the blog; for example, actually posting! I utilized my winter break off from college to get a lot of tutorials brainstormed, started (w.i.p.), and even a few finished. I drank a small lakes worth of coffee but I think this year is set to be a good one for The Cwafty Blog! More good news is I also got an extra post a month over at Dream A Little Bigger, so you're going to be seeing a lot more tutorials and content from me in general!

Anywho back to today's tutorial! Endless Leather contacted me again after my last set of tutorials for them and sent me some more supplies.  This is the first project that incorporates their super soft leather cords. Read more below to figure out how to make your own!

DIY Gift Wrap with Darby Smart

Wow, after months of little-to-no activity, two posts in two days? Christmas break has me on a roll ladies and gentlemen! Today I have a little collaboration between Gap/Darby Smart and it's designers. Darby Smart teamed up with Gap to create this DIY Gift Wrap kit. As a designer I was given one and told to get creative to inspire others. Can do!

Tutorial Tuesday: Christmas-Light Balloon Garland

About 2 months ago I got a job at a party store. Working there has been amazing. Even though I loved working in pizza this has been the most fun  I've had at a job. Blowing up balloons, decorating the store, and getting to dress up everyday we're not really things I ever expected to be paid for. It's given me a whole new appreciation for holidays.
I've been trying to come up with some interesting balloon tutorials since I started there and today's tutorial is the result!

"Chill Out" Wreath @DALB

I've been trying to make this project for 2-3 years. Let me tell you, it has been an endeavor! I finally think I got it right though and it feels fantastic to get it off of my shelf of unfinished projects.

Who doesn't love silver and white during the winter season? You can keep this wreath up past Christmas because it's more seasonal than holiday-based.

Get the full tutorial here!

Til Next Time!
