DIY spray painted lamp

While we're making a right old mess downstairs, we're trying to keep the upstairs of the house as pleasant to live in as possible. I've added a couple of pretty things to my bedroom recently which are helping me cope, and reminding me that the kitchen and lounge will be beautiful too ... one day! My favourite ...

DIY 1st birthday photo frame

DIY first birthday gift: month-by-month photo frame | www.angelinthenorth.com

Recently the daughter of one of my best friends celebrated a big milestone - her first birthday! My DIY gift to her was this: a pretty boxed frame showing month-by-month how she's grown. Don't you think it's amazing to see, during those precious early months of life, how much children change and grow from scrunched-up newborns ...

Hillarys Blinds are running a brilliant competition at the moment and this DIY fabric banner is my entry. Bloggers could choose from four fabrics from Hillarys' new Country Retreat range - I chose the pretty painterly 'Calluna' - and we received a square metre for a craft project. That's not all: the winner gets £1,000! Told you it was ...

DIY geometric bowl

DIY Sharpie project: monochrome geometric bowl | www.angelinthenorth.com

This old black and white bowl had been hanging around in our various bathrooms for a number of years. It was about to go in the bin, but its life was saved because it happened to be the perfect size to fit on a particularly awkward shelf below the new bathroom cabinet. I've been shopping around ...

DIY envelope phone case

DIY pink leather envelope phone case | www.angelinthenorth.com

One of my best friends has this Mulberry phone case which was the inspiration for my far more purse-friendly DIY option. I think I'll mainly use it on nights out, to protect the screen from being scratched by keys and coins at a time when everything gets thrown in a bag together and you're more interested in ...

DIY gem cluster earrings

DIY coloured gem cluster earrings | www.angelinthenorth.com

For a good while now, I've been lusting after pairs of hanging earrings with colourful, clustered gemstones, the likes of those sold by J.Crew and Mawi. Unfortunately, I can't just spend a couple of hundred pounds on something to dangle from my lobes a few times a year. So just before Christmas, I made my own. I'd ...

How to make a Christmas garland

DIY tutorial: how to make a traditional Christmas garland | www.angelinthenorth.com

The lovely people at Interflora asked if I'd like to share a step-by-step guide to making a traditional Christmas garland, and when I saw the beautiful photos I jumped at the chance. Isn't it stunning? The vibrant colours and traditional festive foliage mixed with fresh flowers and fragrant fruits create a feast for the senses. What you ...

DIY Christmas hessian bunting

DIY silver and gold hessian

Having got the hang of working with my Cricut mini and being pretty pleased with how my first project turned out, I began looking around for something else I could make with it. Obviously, in the run up to Christmas, the idea that first came to mind was to make a festive decoration, and I had plenty ...

DIY crafty Christmas cards

My good friend Helen posted her pretty DIY-ed Christmas cards on Facebook recently and I immediately pounced and asked if I could share them with you here. She agreed straight away and wrote this. Isn't she lovely? She's been learning to sew lately too so I'm hoping she'll share some of that too. ♥ ♥ ♥ Crafting seems to ...

DIY varsity letter sweatshirt

DIY royal blue varsity letter sweatshirt | www.angelinthenorth.com

I've been crushing on varsity-style letter sweatshirts for some time, helped in no small part by this outfit worn by one of my favourite American style bloggers. So when Cricut kindly sent me a Cricut mini cutting machine to review, it was one of the first projects that sprang to mind. What I used ♥ plain sweatshirt (mine was from eBay, ...
