Get Creative: Make a Marbled Plaster Hanging Vase for Wall & Window

(Image credit: Amelia Lawrence )

Nothing beats coming home to a vibrant vase full of flowers. On the off chance I have extra room in my grocery tote, I’ll snag a bouquet of peonies or a bunch of eucalyptus to freshen up my home. And occasionally, instead of throwing them in a boring glass vase on my kitchen counter – which is every time – I look for new ways to display my florals. Enter the CB2 Teardrop Bud Vase . It has everything: flat back for walls and windows, a hole in the back for easy hanging, and it’s less than $5! I’m just going to go ahead and apologize to the CB2-SOHO shoppers, because I’ve practically bought all of them already.

What I love most about this vase, and others like it, is that it’s perfect for easy DIY projects. And it’s so cheap – did I already mention that? – which makes them perfect for getting creative and experimenting. For me, that meant making marbled plaster-dipped vases.

And while I’m not mad about the convenience of having all my various eyewear choices near the door, I’m not enamored with the clutter it creates, nor the scratches my lenses obtain every time a set of house keys lands too close to them. After weeks of internally complaining to myself about it, I walked to the craft store, picked up a few items, and got to work creating this wood and leather eyeglass display. Problem solved. And much to my surprise, it required very little time – just an hour with drying time – and very few tools! Don’t believe me? See for yourself…

Natural Dyeing (Plus, How To Dye Pillowcases from Avocado Pits)

(Image credit: Aya Brackett )

Sasha Duerr has been dyeing her textiles with compost for over 20 years. The author of two books on natural dyeing and an instructor at the California College of the Arts, Duerr fell in love with natural colors while searching for alternatives to the art school oils and acrylics that made her sick. Living in the Bay Area, she was involved in the sustainable food movement and worked in urban gardens, activities that all raised the question: why can’t we apply those same principles of sensitivity and sustainability to the textiles we wear and live in?
