DIY Part 1
I have reallyyyy been in the mood to create some cute decorations for my apartment. It could be because I'm not working and don't want to just sit around wasting away precious days. I normally am not very crafty (I can't even draw a straight line) but I thought this project was perfect. Messy, not perfect, and unique these string lanterns called my name. My friend posted the website from Stumble Upon on my Facebook and I rushed to town to pick her up and get supplies. I had a very fun time playing it the ooey gooey mixture while my boyfriend looked at me like a 5 year old (typical). I choose pink and yellow because they're my favorite colors and will brighten up any gloomy day we will have, then my boyfriend pouted slightly to get the green in there. Apparently pink and yellow aren't very manly. You can get the instructions here I added food coloring to the mixture to give it some spunk. Unfortunately the heat shrunk the 2 balloons that the pink were wrapped around, so they didn't turn out to well. I think them looking a little crazy though gives them personality and definitely shows I made them.
