Repeat 2 – 3 times.
Waiting is the hardest part they say.
Once dry, cure the chalkboard by rubbing chalkboard all over the egg, then wiping with a dry cloth.
Goodbye Winter! Spring officially began yesterday and the warmer weather is here which means tank tops, shorts and flip flops. This also means it’s time to send away winter and it’s cold dry weather with beauty treatments that renew hair and skin. Since DIY Beauty is the latest rave on Pinterest, I decided to create a few of my own after reading many recipes. DIY Avocado Hair Mask Recipe
My hair has been terribly dry lately and I needed a rescue. I created this mask and it made my hair SUPER soft! I’ll probably do this once every couple of weeks!
I use this stuff about twice a week in the shower, it’s awesome. It leaves my skin feeling soft and also exfoliates my skin! I recommend using it hands, arms, legs and even feet for a soft feeling!
Simply mix them together and put it in a mason jar.
I’ve shared a few of my jewelry organizers with you on the blog. Such as my Frame turned Earring Holder and more recently my Corkboard Necklace Holder. I discovered that I needed to make an addition to my jewelry organizers for my post earrings. I got out the corkboard and burlap and came up with this DIY Earring Organizer!
Take the corkboard and measure out the length of burlap you will need. This should be about 1 inch longer than each side.
Cut the burlap and place the corkboard on top in the middle creating an even look.
Take the hot glue gun and start gluing each side down one time at a time. When onto the last one, be sure to pull taught.
Once the glue is dried, take the Crop-A-Dile and punch holes in the top so that the jute/twine can hold the earring holder.
Thread the Jute through and tie knots on the back ends.

Want to know two facts about me? I love pretty things (obviously) and I’m also a clutz. I recently had to replace my phone with a new one through my phone’s insurance program because I dropped it and destroyed the screen and the charging port. :/ Big bummer, even bigger bummer though was the letter the company sent me saying that I have used up the annual warranty amount which is 2 phones. Sheeze, I went through 2 phones in less than a year? I had to do something to protect my phone so I set out to find a case.
I found some cute phone cases online but I wanted to create my own case. I came up with a clever idea: DIY Phone Case featuring some of my favorite Washi Tape with a clear phone case.
I found a phone case like this one on Amazon for less than 3 dollars + free shipping! Below I share how I made this project, it’s easy and you can change it up as often as you would like without needing to invest in a new phone case:
Project: DIY Washi Tape Phone Case
What You’ll Need:
Here is a hint, there is a cardboard cut out of a phone in the case. Use that as a template to cut out a new piece OR use that piece Just be sure there is room for the flash
Cover the cardstock cut out with layers of tape, insert it in the case!
So maybe you didn’t need a tutorial but it’s a fab idea! Feel free to share w/ pins, tweets etc!
I’m in organization mode and I hit up my closet this weekend. I did another clothing big purge and more in depth organization. I’m ashamed to admit but not really, I love jewelry! But, it gets all over. I needed something for my necklaces that wasn’t going to be time consuming or cost a lot. I lucked out when I got this old bulletin board with cork board at a thrift store. It was in great condition and less than $5! I was able to upcycle it and create this necklace holder.
DIY Necklace Holder:
I took some nails and lined them across and down the board and then added my necklaces. That’s it! Probably one of the simplest tutorials I will share with you on Clever Pink Pirate!
