Bow is not Hello Kitty‘s privilege, it can be more than a simply bow tie, gift wrap or bow hairclip. Make your own bow pillow, bow scraf, bow shirt, bow bracelet, bow necklace, bow ring, bow clutch and more. It’s so nice to see bows all around everyday!

For all upcycling ideas, I love this idea the most of transforming a 6xl t-shirt into a cute summer dress. Finding a 6xl t-shirt is not an easy task, at least not in my closet, but from now on I am looking for a men’s xl shirt!!

It’s the new year – time to take down the holiday decorations and update the decor for spring! I’m planning for a few small home revamp projects to give a refreshing look.

 

First of all, I will revamp the old rubber mats with my favorite fabric. By following this step-by-step tutorial, you can make your own custom rug out of any fabric you love, any size you want, simply with spray adhesive and polyurethane. This is awesome and money-saving!
