DIY paper maidenhair fern mobile

DIY paper maidenhair fern mobile

by Corrie Beth Hogg of Apple of My DIY 

A few years ago I visited the redwood forests in northern California for the first time, my friend and I spent hours hiking amongst the large boughs and trunks, it was magical and inspirational! One of my favorite memories is this steep rock face we found that was completely covered in maidenhair ferns. I love how delicate and expressive they are. I’m smitten. I’ve tried to capture those qualities here in paper with this mobile, it is so light, it’s constantly twisting and turning in the slightest breeze. You only need a few supplies to make this – super easy if you have a paper cutting machine, but you can cut by hand as well.DIY paper maidenhair fern mobile Read on →

Although aptly named for its striped leaves, the gorgeous watermelon peperomia has no botanical relation to its namesake. The patterned leaves though do call to mind my favorite summer treat! So, when Brittany asked me to do another paper plant tutorial… I thought this was a fitting choice with summer just around the corner. Plus, this crafted plant makes the perfect father’s day gift. Especially if your Dad is like mine and never remembers to water the plants in his office. No green thumb needed, Dad!

DIY No Sew Fabric Pleated Pendant Lamp

DIY no sew fabric lamp

by Corrie Beth Hogg of Apple of my DIY

I have 2 giant bins full of fabric scraps in my studio. I am always trying to dream up projects for these too precious to toss pieces. Recently, I discovered it takes less than half a yard of fabric to make this simple no sew fabric lamp shade. This technique might just change your life people, so far I have made 3 of these. It’s so easy! Plus, I love any opportunity to introduce a pop of color into my space. You can use almost any fabric! Just stay away from thick upholstery weight (I found printed cotton or linen works best). Play with fun patterns, or bold colors. You can’t go wrong!
