diy with Brittni:

August 12, 2011

We still have about a month and a half left of summer, but the heat is INTENSE here in Florida right now (it's Brittni from Papernstitch), and I all I can think of is fall. I guess its because I'm just kind of ready to be able to walk around the neighborhood without sweating.

So anyway, when I think of fall, I think of nature. Which is why I've rounded up my favorite diy projects this week with a nature theme. Something to get your creative wheels spinning when the sun finally cools off in the states. Enjoy!

Create tracing paper envelopes with natural embellishments in a matter of minutes.

Make a paper flower bouquet with the help of Martha (Stewart) and a revamped planter tutorial for indoor plants.

Grab some twigs from the backyard and put them to good use with this woodsy candle holder diy.

Give your hair a little boho pick-me-up with this

nature-inspired hair clip project.

Make your own bath salts (this project is so easy. great gift idea!).

And probably my favorite diy project of the week: a shadowbox with vintage porcelain letters and a little bit of flora (from none other than Victoria Smith of SFgirlbybay-love her blog).
