What’s the best thing that happened to you lately? Marlene from Idle Hands Awake kindly featured my gold eye paperclips DIY in her latest DIY round up which made my week! When you are a blogger, little things like that make you jump for joy πŸ™‚ THANK YOU MARLENE!


So I popped over to her blog to thank her, and found some really cool mud fabric DIYs. I’d seen these patterns before, but never knew what they were called! A quick Google search later- they’re Mawi fabric dyed with mud- and I was inspired to make this. (I’ve given in to my inner gypsy and been giving my house a bohemian makeover lately πŸ™‚


What you need

  • Ceramic jewelry holder- you can make this using DAS Terracotta air dry clay or, do as I do, and buy the Waitrose baked cheese that comes on these amazing plates! Baked cheese + ceramic plate for under Β£5? Bargain!!
  • Correction fluid- or as we Asians call it, liquid paper!
  • 2 minutes of your time



Step 1

Draw your design around the plate using the liquid paper- DIYers prerogative when it comes to the design but if you have a creative block, mud fabric calls to mind (to me) geometry and solid shapes so lots of lines, dots, triangles, squares ….


Just be careful not to smudge the liquid paper as you go around! Leave to dry for a few minutes and you’ve just given your jewelry collection a makeover πŸ™‚



Optional: skull candle fromΒ Flamingosaurus Rex


What’s the last thing you’ve made after blog-surfing or Pinterest-ing? Mine is this cactus wire photo holder inspired by Britttni from Paper Stitch πŸ™‚ Hit me with your links, I’d love to take a look! πŸ™‚
