5 Back To School DIYs

Welp, it’s almost time to go back to school. But when you do go back, you’re gonna have some pretty awesome looking school supplies. Who wants plain stuff? Not me. If you bring it to school, you can decorate it. I found a lot of cool ways to snazz up school supplies, so if you don’t want to have boring school supplies, you should do some of them.

1. Awesome Collage Notebooks

Most stores just sell boring single-colored notebooks. Sometimes they will have a picture on the front, but you’re not going to find anything as cool as these at any store.Just imagine the possibilities! Go to Pie N’ the Sky to find out how to do this.

2. Super Awesomely Adorable Whale Pencil Pouch

I’m not very sure why you wouldn’t want to have this at school. It’s cute, it’s functional, I don’t think there’s anything else you need from a pencil pouch. I mean, who doesn’t like whales? If you want to make this (which hopefully you do) go to Guide Central.

3. Silly Face Bookmarks

crazy bookmarks

Ok. I know these are kind of random, but they’re pretty cool. Sometimes you just need a little something to stick in a book you’re reading during study hall, or just to save your page in a textbook in class when you’re flipping between pages. Go to Morena’s Corner to make this.

4. Confetti Notebook

This is a great way to snazz up your notebook. It would be so much more interesting to write in these than just the plain gray notebooks. Find out how to make these at Madigan Made.

5. Polka Dot Pencils

Ok. Everybody has just those plain orange number 2 pencils, right? But I bet you don’t want to be boring so you’re gonna make these. Go to Make and Tell to learn how to make these.

Now, you don’t have to go to school with a bunch of boring school supplies like everybody else. You’ll have supplies that you’ll actually enjoy using! I hope you found something awesome for school this year! Have an awesome school year! Bye!

Random Pineapple DIYs

Okay. Pineapples are everywhere right now. I’m not very sure why, but I do know that pineapples are awesome. And very tasty. I found a bunch of random pineapple DIYs, so I put them all together into one blog post and Voila! Here’s Random Pineapple DIYs. I’ll have the websites with the tutorials listed right underneath the picture.

1. Pineapple Shoes

Now why exactly would you not want these? They seem relatively easy to make, and they’re super adorable. So go get some white canvas shoes, some whatever else you need, and get to making these! You can find out how to make these amazing shoes at Flamingo Toes.

2. Pineapple Thumbprint Art

This is a cool way to snazz up your bedroom. Or living room. Or bathroom. Pretty much anywhere you put it will look snazzy when you hang it up. Go over to this website and make this! I found this at Beckham+Bell.

3. Pineapple Ukulele

Out of all the pineapple DIYs in the world, this one’s my favorite. I love ukuleles. This would be a really cool decoration, or you could paint the ukulele you play! Go get your uke and get to work! Go to Lovely Indeed to find this tutorial.

4. Paper Pom Pineapples

These would be really cute to use as decorations for either a party or just your normal house. Tissue paper is a fairly common thing to have, so you probably have everything you need to make these. Go get your tissue paper and go to From Prince Paperie!

5. Pineapple Backpack

Do you like pineapples? I assume you do because if you didn’t you wouldn’t have gotten this far in this post. Do you own items you need to cry around sometimes? Probably! If you answered yes to one or both (or neither), you need to make this backpack. Now go to Make It and Love It to find out how to make this!

6. Pineapple Glitter Something

Here’s a very glittery pineapple painting that would look awesome wherever you put it. I hope you have glitter. You should. Even if you’re not trying to make this. If you want to make this, go to PolkaDots!

7. Pineapple Board

If you have a desk that is just a little too empty, or a wall that is not too empty, go get a board and make this. This is super cute and fun, and everybody needs a peg board. Go to Un Vent do Mode! (you’ll want to press translate because it’s not in English).

8. Pineapple Airplant Holder

pineapply needs to be edited

Here’s a very close second to the ukulele for my favorite pineapple DIYs. I’m not very sure what an airplant is, but it seems like it makes a good stem for the pineapple. All this is air dry clay made into a little pot-type things, paint it yellow and stick a plant in it. Go to I Spy a DIY to figure out how to make this!

Well, I hope you found something (or somethings) to make during this whole pineapple crazy phase that everybody’s in. Have fun with your pineapples. Bye!

 

Dye Your Hair With Kool-Aid

Don’t you want some color in your hair without anything permanent? If you have, you will probably want to try this out. You can dye your hair purple, blue, green, orange, or anything in between with Kool-Aid. I found out how to do this on  Spoon University.

color hair2

I dyed my hair purple just on the tips. I used grape flavored Kool-Aid, and it ended up a little dark. If you want your hair a very specific color, there are a bunch of charts to show you what flavors you need to mix to make that certain color.

The color will last about 2-4 weeks, dependingon how long you soak your hair, what color you use, and what type of hair you have.

You’ll need to put your hair up in a ponytail if you’re planning on doing just the tips. Make sure your hair is tangle free (or it might look a little weird when it’s done.) You also might want to change into a shirt that you don;t care about too much, because Kool-Aid can stain. It didn’t stain when I did it, but it’s just a precaution.

You’ll Need:

  • Pot or pan
  • stove
  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 packets of Kool-Aid
  • Bowl or container
  • Towel
  • Hair

How To Do It:

First, put the pot on the stove and put 2 cups of water into the pot.

water pot

Next, you’ll need to put both of the packets of Kool-Aid into the water. Mix it around a little bit, just until it’s all dissolved.

Once all the powder has dissolved, turn on the stove to medium-high, and let it boil for about 2 minutes.

Once it is done boiling, immediately pour it into the bowl.

color bowl

Make sure your hair is tangle free and in a ponytail. Grab the section that you want to be colored and stick it in the juice.

hair in color

You’ll want to keep it in 20-30 minutes, but I kept mine in for 40 minutes, just because I wanted my color to be dark and noticeable, and my hair is kind of thick. (This part is a pain in your neck, since you’re bending your head back to keep it in the water. Just FYI.)

When your hair is done soaking, take your hair out of the bowl/container and dry it out. Take your hair out of the ponytail and brush through it.

Here’s my hair right after I brushed it:

Here’s my hair the next day after it dried:

I hope you found this helpful, and I hope your hair looks extra awesome now. Bye!

Pineapple Glitter Something

IMG_2160

I know I haven’t done a blog for a little while, but I seriously couldn’t think of anything to do. I was talking with my best friends about how cool it would be to have like a tropical pineapple themed room. Then this brilliant idea struck me. But it didn’t actually strike me then, I just thought about it a few minutes ago and came up with this. I love glitter. A LOT. So whenever I have the chance to use it I get very excited about it.

Here’s what you’ll need

  • canvas or paper
  • glue
  • brush
  • sharpie
  • pencil
  • this website (Unless you suddenly decide you don’t want to do this, or you are now a super genius that can just see something and make it. Trust me. Just use this website.)

IMG_2151

Draw the outline of the pineapple with a PENCIL (Not sharpie. That wouldn’t look very good.) If for some reason you can’t see the drawing that is RIGHT ABOVE THIS PARAGRAPH, go look at an actual pineapple. Nobody knows what a pineapple looks like anymore. *sarcasm*

IMG_2152

Get the glue and draw little diamonds with it. Please don’t try to make individual diamonds, just draw lines. That will make everything easier on everybody. Thanks.

IMG_2153

Brush some orange glitter (or whatever color you want. You could do blue for that matter.) onto the glue diamonds. I might be a little messy on the canvas, but that will be covered up later.

IMG_2154

Put glue on the stem of the pineapple. After you have done that, brush some green (or not green) glitter onto it.

IMG_2156

I’m sure that you already know how to do this part, since I’ve kind of explained how to do this two times already, but I’ll still say it. Put the glue on the pineapple. Cover in glitter.

IMG_2158

Outline the letters with a pencil (or sharpie if you know you can do it on your first try) I think it would be pretty cool if you like squished some of the letters against the pineapple (kind of like I tried to do with the A.).

IMG_2160

Color the letters in with sharpie once you have the letters like you want them. I speak from personal experience when I say this, I suggest not using a dried out sharpie. I did that at first. It was just….. kind of sad. You can draw a little hibiscus flower if you want, but I unfortunately don’t have instructions on how to do that. I’m not actually sure if I drew it right. That’s the main reason.

That is all of the instructions I have for this pineapple. I guess this is a president’s day pineapple. CONGRATULATIONS. You now have a president’s day pineapple.

How To Refill Your EOS

I’ve noticed that almost everybody has EOS. I’m actually not surprised, they’re really good. I have 5 different flavors, and I just ran out of one of them. Don’t throw away your used EOS, you can refill them! I am going to use my old tangerine EOS and refill it with citrus bliss flavored “EOS”.  I got this tutorial at diyjoy.com.

Here’s what you’ll need

  • Beeswax
  • Coconut oil
  • Essential oils (whatever flavor you want, I’m using citrus bliss)
  • Old EOS container
  • Little plastic containers (optional, there will be a little bit extra, so this is just for if you want to do something with it)

Here’s what you need to do to refill your EOS

  • Mix 2 Tbs of beeswax with 2 Tbs of coconut oil (You can do as much or as little as you want, as long as they are an equal amount.)
  • Melt it in the microwave for about 5 seconds at a time
  • Add essential oils until there is as much flavor as you want in it (you may want to put a little on your lips and taste it)
  • Get your EOS and scoop out the leftover of the lip balm
  • Get a knife and pop the little wheel thing out. (This step is pretty hard. I had to get help. Try getting the knife under one of the long plastic things that make up the wheel.)
  • Screw the wheel thing into the top half of the egg
  • Pour the lip balm you just made into the top half with the wheel in it
  • Put it in the fridge until it is as hard as a normal EOS
  • Pop the bottom half onto the top half (Don’t try to screw it on, or you’ll be trying for a long time) Make sure the flat part of the wheel is by the flat part of the egg.
  • Enjoy your EOS!
  • Now clean up if there’s a mess. Don’t leave a mess. That’s just gross.

I hope you were able to refill your EOS with this tutorial. Even if you didn’t, at least I did. If you want it to moisturize your lips, add vitamin E. I don’t know how you add a vitamin E to something, because until now I thought they only came in gummies. Or am I thinking of something else? Whatever. Bye!
