There are lots of fun ways to decorate Easter eggs, but one of my favorite ways is tie-dyeing.  When you make tie-dyed Easter eggs you, you’ll have fun testing different color combinations, patterns and designs.  No two eggs will ever turn out the same and that’s part of the appeal of this process.

How to Make Duct Tape Roses

Duct Tape Roses

I love roses, but lets face it; They are expensive and they don’t last very long.  So how about making your own so that they never go bad?

I love these duct tape roses.  First, because they are super cute of course.  But I also like this project because they’ve added a little light going up the stem of the rose.  That makes it the perfect choice for a centerpiece for a romantic dinner, or family gathering.  People won’t believe that you made these flowers with duct tape!

Star Wars Saga Cross-Stitched Tapestry

Star Wars Cross Stitch

When I came across this project at Makezine, I knew that I had to share it.  I don’t think that the picture does it justice, but it gives you an idea about how amazing this cross-stitched tapestry is.

Artist Aled Lewis created this 30-foot long, cross-stitched tapestry on a 7 stitch per inch fabric and it has scenes from the entire Star Wars saga.  While I don’t have the budget to add this beautiful piece to my home, perhaps I could use it as inspiration to make my own…but on a much smaller scale of course.
