Remember making peanut people as a kid? I loved making them when we went camping every summer. These Valentines are a fun and colourful update on them - see more photos and instructions on Handmade Charlotte.

If you know me, you know I LOVE thrift shopping. My favourite part of the store is the glassware section - I can almost always find something to bring home with me. Lately I've been loving all the vintage coloured glass I've been seeing while thrifting and in others' collections online. Todays DIY shows how to make your own simple rose-tinted glasses - such a fun idea for Valentine's Day, don't you think? The full post is over on Design*Sponge.

I'll admit it, I enjoy a good pun every once in a while. There are so many cute ones on vintage valentines that I had to put my own spin on one in today's post. See all the steps and instructions over on Handmade Charlotte.

I've started to realize that I have way more vintage glassware than I have room to keep. Recently I picked these adorable milk glass ramekins, but had yet to use them for anything. Instead of letting them collect dust, I came up with this crazy easy DIY project to turn them into oversized bon bons! See more photos and the full tutorial over on Julep.

Jewellery storage is such a tricky nut to crack. I used to have one of those necklace trees, but I found that many of my necklaces were too long for it and they became tangled on the dresser. Now, I've started using these marble clay hooks, and so far they're working great for me! Make them yourself - see the instructions over on Design*Sponge.

I love making To Do lists. I usually have a few going, for different projects, days, etc which usually works well for me, but sometimes the tasks on the list are things both me and my boyfriend need to do. To make life easier, I made these geometric To Do magnets - this way, I can keep the list up on the fridge for everyone to see. For all the steps, see the full post on Design*Sponge.

Remember the line in the song Let It Snow: "I've brought some corn for popping"? That's what inspired these candy cane popcorn kits! They're so simple to put together, and make a great favour for holiday parties. See the full tutorial on Julep.
