Monday's Must Make List: Series Kickoff

I don't know about you but I'm incredibly guilty of pinning all. the. (DIY) things. without actually making any of them.

There's a million and one ideas out there (too many to count, really) and every Monday I plan on sharing a few of them that have pushed me past the pinning stage and into the must make stage! That is unless you guys hate this idea haha If so, this will be the first and last installment ;)

Don't forget to pin from the original sources :)

Must Make Item #1:
DIY Copper Pipe Jewelry Displays by Moorea Seal

I'm not going to lie, I bought a lot of jewelry for Haven anddd I kind of have no where to hang it haha Each piece is currently being stored in the bags it came in (#classy) but I'd like to have it out on display so I can easily see what I have to choose from when I'm getting ready.

These DIY copper pipe jewelry displays Moorea Seal created for The Home Depot's Apron Blog are easily customizable (taller, shorter, longer/shorter arms, etc.) and would be perfect for displaying my Forever 21 finds!

Must Make Item #2:
DIY Cross Pillow with Tile Spacers by Go Haus Go

I'm just going to say it: Emily is a genius! She took leftover tile spacers from her kitchen renovation and sewed them onto a pillow cover with colorful embroidery floss! The result is simple and sweet and would add a lot of personality to an empty chair (I'm looking at you gray club chair)!

Must Make Item #3:
DIY Polka Dot Framed Art by With Heart

Let's face it: art can be expensive. Thankfully Jen has put together a great tutorial on how you can make some beautiful DIY polka dot art that's easy and inexpensive! I just so happen to have a few frames that are in need of some art...

What's on your "must make" list?

If you have a project that you'd like to have featured on next week's Must Make List, send me a link to it!

If your project was included on this week's list but you'd like to have it removed, please e-mail me letting me know and I'll remove it immediately.

    1. Isn't it gorgeous? It reminds me of a very expensive fabric I've seen before!

  2. DITTO with the polka dot art one! Thanks for sharing. I have a huge frame I picked up at a garage sale with some old art I can't wait to chuck and fill in with something. The messy polka dot idea just gave me the jolt of inspiration to try it. It's so simple with great results too! Since I don't have acrylic paint, I think I can just straight up use some nail polish in a monochromatic palette I have to pull it off. :D

    1. So happy it inspired you! Using nail polish is a great idea! I'd love to see the final outcome :)

  3. Love the series idea! I'm always pinning and barely ever crafting (or cooking) so my completion rate is probably like .01%. This is a much more fun way of saying to-do list.

    1. Thanks Haley! I'm pretty sure your completion rate is higher than mine haha And you're right, "must make list" sounds much better than "to do list"!

  4. Thanks for the shoutout, lady! Loved meeting you in person at Haven! Hope we can cross paths again soon! xx

  5. Love the copper bracelet holder! That's so cute!

  6. That pillow was pure Emily genius!! So smart. I think I have a long running list of DIYs I want to make. Day - 24 hours, really? I need more :)

  7. Great idea for a series! (that's me saying you shouldn't make this the last installment ;)). I didn't buy any jewelry for Haven, but I probably should have. Maybe if I had an awesome copper jewelry holder, I would be more motivated :)

  8. Thanks for the shout out! And I love this idea for a series. Can't wait for next Monday. Pipes intimidate me but I would be all over that jewelry holder!

  9. All of these are incredible!! They are definitely must makes! That cross pillow is genius!
