Fall Leaf Candle Holder

Autumn is coming to an end and you're finding fall leaves all over your garden and backyard. Before you rack them and discard them in the green cart (for compose), gather and save a few leaves. You can reuse them and create awesome accent pieces for your home. Materials: Leaves (real or fake) Mason Jar Sponge Brush (optional) Mod Podge Preparation: Make sure your the jar is clean (on the outside). Wipe off any grease and grime with alcohol. Make sure your leaves are malleable. Bend them a little bit to loosen them up. Method: Dip your brush in the Mod Podge and paint a thin layer on a section of the jar. Once that layer becomes quite sticky, place a leaf on the jar. Paint more Mod Podge on top of the leaf in thin layers, making sure to smooth out the edges. Start in the center of the leaf, and push your way out to the edges with your fingers. Once all the leaves are on, it will take a few hours to dry completely. The tiny edges of the leaves may not stay completely down, but when the look is complete, you may barely even notice.

Grow Your Own Avocado Tree From Seed
Planting your own avocado tree is a lot easier than you think. You don't need a lot of materials, space, or time. This project is great for people of all ages and can grow from your outdoor garden or inside your home. Here's how to get started: Directions: 1. Take a ripe avocado and cut it into 2 halves. Remove the seed from the center, rinse off with fresh water, and make sure there is no fruit on it. Let the seed dry completely. 2. Push 3-4 toothpicks inside the seed from all sides towards the middle. Place in a full glass of water so the pointy end of the seed faces upward, while the round part is in the water by an inch. 3. Keep the glass in a semi warm climate controlled place (away from direct sunlight). Leave for 4-6 weeks and check regularly to see if additional water needs to be added. Note: The seed will sprout a stem and roots. Once you see the stem is 6 inches long, cut it down to 3 inches. The stem will continue to grow and you will start to notice some leaves. 4. Take out the seed from the glass and move it to a large pot 3 ft. wide and 3 ft. deep. Add some rich fertile soil and compost to the pot and plant the seed. Note: The root of the seed should be pushed inside the soil about 1-3 inches, while the top half of the seed should remain outside the pot. 5. Place the pot where it can get good sunlight, water, and air. The soil should remain moist, but not completely saturated. Note: It's helpful to use a pot with good drainage. Pinch the top leaves of the plant every time the stem length increases by 6 inches to help the growth of the plant. *It's beneficial to start planting in the Spring. Also, if you don't want to plant your avocado tree in the garden, make sure to take your plant outside on a daily basis for sunlight and fresh air. It will take about 7=15 years for the tree to yield fruit, so be patient!

3 Tips For Designing A Lounge Area At The Office
Today we work very differently than it was thirty years ago. Laptops, smartphones, and tablets give employees more flexibility to work. The flexibility that we also find within the walls of the office, because activity-based working is the most normal thing in the world for some companies. For those who don't know it yet: with activity-based work, employees have the option of working in a place that fits their current task, for example, in a lounge area. But how do you ensure a functional lounge space at the office? No one can entirely focus on his or her work 8 or 9 hours a day. And fortunately, that is not necessary either. For that reason alone, lounge areas at the office are a good idea. But in addition to a place to relax or catch up with a colleague, a lounge area has another function: a workplace! Lounge areas are perfect workplaces to stimulate creativity, productivity, and innovative thinking. Choosing the correct interior designer for your home/office is always a monotonous job Make sure you choose the right one who provides you with good service. Are you looking for the best interior designer in Mumbai? AVN Interior is one of the best design company in Mumbai These three tips help you to do that effectively. 1. Go for comfort Offices with a 'living room' look are something we see more and more often. A comfortable chair or sofa immediately gives an office a softer look. Something that can help employees to feel more relaxed in their workplace. 2. Make sure there is enough workspace It may sound a bit crazy in an office, but make sure you have enough workspace, especially in a lounge area. To be productive, you do need a work surface. For example, a side table (possibly height adjustable) or a handy, round meeting table where employees can work on or use differently. 3. Flexibility is indispensable Different employees have different needs when it comes to the workplace. That is why a lounge area must offer flexibility. Lightweight furniture that is easy to move is a wise choice. The development of the modern office requires progress in the field of office design. By creating a multi-usable lounge space, you motivate your employees to work together and share ideas in a completely different type of workspace.

DIY Magnetic Tin Terrarium
- Gravel - Air plants, cactus or succulents - Moss - spray paint - magnetic metal tins - Dremel tool - painterโ€™s tape - E6000 glue Cover your tins with painterโ€™s tape before you begin spray painting the inside of them. Spray tins with 3-4 light coats until they have are opaque in solid white. While your tins are drying, remove the acrylic top from all lids by putting a small amount of pressure with your hands to pop them off. Measure the diameter and mark a line with a permanent marker. Using the diamond cutter tip of your Dremel tool, slice all acrylic lids in halves (you can also try different shapes or drill holes). Lightly sand the edges using a sander tip of your Dremel tool. Place acrylic tops back in the metal frame of the caps and glue both pieces. We also recommend dabbing the edges of the tins with a q-tip with glue to seal the lids to prevent the weight from the gravel popping out of the containers. It took one wall terrarium to splash gravel all over the floor for us to figure that out :) Once your tins are dry from spray paint, remove tape and wash tins with water and soap. Close all tins, now with open front lids. Add gravel, misty moss and air plants. If you prefer building a closed terrarium and skipping cutting the lids, you will need activated charcoal, which can be found in the aquarium section at any pet store. Air plants wonโ€™t work well in closed containers, so you may want to switch to ferns and small leafy plants.
