DIY earphone holder

This project is genius! One of the most frustrating things about having earphones is that whenever you pull them out of your purse, they are incredibly tangled and it takes me about 10 minutes to untangle them. This DIY project fixes that problem by reusing old mint containers! This DIY tutorial comes from the great people at Bloglovin'.

Materials

For this project, you will need:
-- Electric drill
-- Icebreakers mint container
-- Keychain
-- Colored or patterned duct tape (optional)

Drill holes for the keychain in the mint container

Use the electric drill to drill holes in the mint container. Make sure you drill at an angle so that the keychain will fit in the holes easier. Thread the keychain through the holes.

Decorate the mint containers

Use the colored or patterned duct tape to decorate the mint containers if you want to. It's completely up to you whether you want to decorate the mint containers.
If you want more detailed instructions, check out this video that gives step-by-step instructions for this project.

Put your earphones in the containers and clip them on your purse!

The containers will keep your earphones untangled!

Turn El Wire Into Neon Signs - DIY
Before today I had never heard of El wire. Neon? Sure, I've heard of that since before I was born. But what is El wire and how does it work? Well, from the looks of the tutorial from A Practical Wedding, online, it's easy to do, inexpensive and anyone can do it with the right supplies! Sounds good to me! Supplies Needed: 3โ€ฒ x 3โ€ฒ White Acrylic for โ€œLove like Hell Yeahโ€ 15โ€ณ x 17โ€ณ White Acrylic for โ€œLoveโ€ 30 ft Pink El Wire Kit (5mm) (You can find it here from GlowCity.com) 10 ft Pink El Wire Kit (5mm) Print of Your Quote Chalkboard Marker/Dry Erase Marker Loctite Super Glue Ultra Gel Control Painters Tape Gaff Tape Drill with a quarter-inch drill bit 1. Print out your word to fit the acrylic. 2. Figure out where you will need to drill holes to make your words. The obvious ones, are at the beginning and end of every word or unconnected letter. 3. Trace your word or quote on to the acrylic using a dry erase or chalkboard marker. Do a test first to make sure it comes off your plexiglass easily before you write out the whole thing! 4. Drill a hole big enough for your EL wire to fit through everywhere you marked an โ€œxโ€. 5. Pull all of your EL wire through the first hole from back to front (at the beginning of the โ€œLโ€) leaving just the black wire that connects it to the battery pack on the back of the sign. 6. Now just trace your word with the EL wire, bending it over itself at the curves and securing them with a couple drops of super glue gel. Youโ€™ll have to hold it in place for a minute or two until it sticks and then you can use a piece of painters tape to hold it down while it dries completely (about ten minutes). TIP: If you wipe away the writing writing as you go, it makes it easier to to remove all the writing. 7. Continue gluing your EL wire at all the curves and loops and whenever you come to one of your holes, drop the EL wire to the back of your plexiglass, then pull it through the next hole and continue. 8. When you get to the last letter, drop the EL wire through to the back of your plexi and flip it over. You can cut off the extra EL wire nowโ€”just snip it with regular scissors! 9. Wrap any extra EL wire on the back with tape. 10. Plug in the battery pack and tape it to the pack of the sign! Pretty cool idea, right?! I am going to think of some other cool things that I can use this El wire with for future projects! Click here to see other fun things I am planning for my wedding.
DIY peppermint spoons
This is a perfect item to use in your hot holiday drinks โ€” use the peppermint spoon to stir the drink and then the peppermint will melt into your drink. How amazing is that? This DIY tutorial comes from the creative people at Princess Pinky Girl. Materials For this project, you will need: -- Hard peppermint candies -- Oven -- Spoon molds (you can buy these at a craft or baking store or online here) -- Plastic bag -- Food/candy crusher (you can also use a hammer) -- Chocolate chips and sprinkles (optional)You can find most of these items at a craft or grocery store. Form the spoons Put a lot of hard peppermint candies in a plastic bag. Then, use the food crusher or hammer to crush the candies into smaller pieces. Put the smaller pieces into the mold, as shown in the picture above. Make sure there are a lot of peppermint candies in the handle as this section will break easily if there is enough peppermint candy there. Melt the peppermint Melt the peppermint candy in the oven at 300 degrees for about 10 minutes. Keep an eye on the candy to make sure that it melts all the way, but doesn't bubble. If any of the spoon looks thin, you can add some more peppermint candy pieces and stick it back in the oven. Let the spoons cool completely before removing from the molds. If you need more help making the peppermint spoons, check out this video with simple step-by-step instructions. If you want to add some extra flair to your peppermint spoons, you can add melted chocolate and sprinkles to your spoons. Use the peppermint spoon in your favorite holiday drink and enjoy!
