Sometimes a room needs a dash of color and a touch of style. Like the vivid artistry of whimsical Paper Ball Chains, featured in an easy tutorial at Made. Inspired by the colors of dusk and dawn, this project involves little more than art paper, a circular punch, and a sewing machine. Can’t sew? No worries–we’re talking straight line sewing here. In fact, grouping and sewing the circles in collections of six creates the “ball” effect you see below. A great tutorial! To discover the project that inspired it, click here.
The painted dresser in the next image was created with the help of white and blue paint, as well as masking tape, which ensures that the triangles have neat, straight edges. Check out the full tutorial at Hitta Hem:
A little paint, fabric, wood or glue can assist you in crafting the vibrant accessories in our last batch of projects. For example, the no-sew Triangle Pillow below is created by adding felt triangles to a pillow of your choice. And yes, this can be done with fabric glue rather than stitches!
