I haven’t done a DIY post in a while, so I thought I would show you what I made over the weekend. My make up brush collection has recently expanded so I’ve been looking for a new way to store my brushes in an interesting and attractive way. This project cost me literally nothing too!

I got this little book of stickers a couple of years ago, and I still have hundreds of them left to use! I find them really useful for labelling my cake tins in the kitchen. I have loads of tins, each one has different cake making tools in, so these are perfect (and pretty) to use to label them. There are lots of different pretty designs, but I am saving the best ones!

Firstly, I bought a cake stand handle from eBay for less than £2. They gave a choice of gold or silver, and I picked a silver one. I…

As I previously mentioned, it was my nieces 8th birthday at the weekend. So a few weeks ago I started making this for her as a little additional gift. She has started wanting her bedroom decorated in a similar style to my own, with pastel colours and floral decorations. So I thought that I would make her a DIY gift that I put thought into and that will also match her bedroom. So it started off as an old wooden picture…
