DIY Soap Crystals

Welcome to the world of Lisa, a place of mystical treats and crafts galore OR how it can also be put; awesome crafts and an idle girl. Now, Friday has arrived and I am more than grateful! Creatively, this has not been my week. Sometimes the more you push things, the more it pushes back. That being said, I decided to just step back and my patience was rewarded with this beauty. Folks, I present soap crystals.  

Now soap is one of those things you can never go wrong with. Everyone's gotta use soap (well you should) and making this is so simple. They make great presents, favours and can add to your room deco if put on display. 

Give it a try!

DIY Neon Sign

There's something inherently cool about neon signs and I have wanted one for ages. I came dangerously close to paying £60+ for one online not too long ago but I was strong. Who says patience isn't rewarded? The beauty of this is that it only cost £10 for all the materials! They can be easily sourced on Amazon. I created this DIY with a plastic backing but I'm itching to do it with a wood panel, imagine the glow (drool). Expect an updated sign in the near future. 

This DIY allows you to put your own personal stamp on your home decor. Creating the sign is simple but fiddley at times. The final product, however, is well worth effort. My sign has found a snug little home in my bookcase between Freud and Jamie Oliver. Home accessories can cost a bomb so why not do it yourself. 

Give it a go!
