D.I.Y. FEATURE | Laura Ashley Statement Necklace

mbm_laura-ashley_diy-necklace-main

Yes, that’s right folks…I’m back with a Laura Ashley special!

Once again, I’ve collaborated with the fabulous interiors and lifestyle brand to give you something fun and quite the show-stopper.  If you remember the ‘Make & Do‘ series i’ve done with them in the past, you’ll know I love a bit of wallpaper crafting and this DIY explores another way of using everyday decorative home items to create something creative. I mean, who would’ve thought that some floral/tropical themed wall paper and curtain tie-backs would make some statement necklace or halter neck detail for a dress, right?

Well, it’s definitely one for the brave creatives and fashionistas who like to stand out from the crowd….but hey, regardless of that, I reckon you should still have a nosey at the FULL tutorial over on the Laura Ashley Blog and maybe….just maybe, it’ll tempt all of you to try something funky! (psssst…if you do have a go, please make sure to share it on social media and include the hashtag #craftwithMolu!!)

I hope you like this one folks…..! xx

[D.I.Y. FEATURE] Scandi-inspired cork placemats

MbM_DIY-CORK-TABLE-MATS_01

Hi guys! I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend and that your Monday has kicked off well for you.

Well, I just wanted to share with you a recent DIY tutorial I did for the gorgeous B.Loved Wedding & Lifestyle blog as part of being their contributors team. It’s a simple Scandi-inspired set of cork placemats that would, in fact, go really well with most tableware and dining interior style you have. You’ll find the full tutorial HERE, if you fancy giving it a go. The whole things takes roughly 30-40 mins (if you have 6 mats to do) and around 15 minutes to air dry.

Hope you like it! xx
