Leather Love

Bloesem Living | Leather Love DIY

Leather, what a classic material. And like how we expressed in the title of this post, this is all about why we love leather. This amazing material isn't just beautiful, it's sturdy and wears well, so basically there's just alot of potential for it. 

Recently, the Bloesem Creative Space had a little dose of leather love with the addition of these leather handles through out the store, which are great for hanging everything from plants to accessories and other beautiful products we want to display.

But we didn't want to stop there so we did a quick google search and were just shocked at how many wonderful leather DIYs there were already floating around on the interwebs! So we had to include some of our favorite after the cut.

Plus, bonus links for some products we love using this cow hide natural leather that you can get your hands on!

Make a Word Catcher for a present

Bloesem Living | DIY WORD CATCHER

 Véronique has been a regular craft contributor for my other blog Bloesem Kids and every time I am thrilled to receive her DIY projects in my inbox. This lady lives in Africa where art materials are not the easiest to find but with simple tools and materials she teaches us how to create amazing things. Normally I only share the projects on BKids only but today I wanted to make sure you wouldn't miss this one. 

Think about some words you would like to give to a friend or family member this year for Christmas?

DIY Golden feathers

Bloesem Living | DIY Golden Feathers

Hello Bloesem readers, this is Nancy from Nicenancy and I am excited to share a little craft tutorial with you today. 

I’ve got a thing for feathers at the moment. They are so tactile and beautiful I could look at them forever. And once you start painting them gold, you’ll want them even more. I used mine to decorate a package, but they are best friends with interior decorators as well. Put them under a glass and let the pretty things shine!

What you’ll need
*Textile painting (I used Royal Talens Decorfin gold, nr 801)
*Water color for any other color
*A small brush
*A match (if you want stamp dots)

Well, this is probably the easiest DIY you’ve ever seen. Just grab those lovely feathers and start exploring your favorite patterns. I like dots and graphic lines. My 6 year old daughter Josi painted just the upper part blue (like a dip-dye) and I loved it. Just follow your heart and it will turn out beautiful!
