Kawaii Mason Jar Organizer DIY!

How to make super cute mason jar organizers!

Hello and welcome back! It’s been quite awhile since my last DIY post!

So today, I am going to show you how to make these:

What you will need is this:

*Make sure to choose jars with raised writing on only one side*

First step is to remove the lid of the jar and wipe your jars down with a damp rag. Let them dry completely.

Now using your acrylic paint, paint the outside of the jars with your chosen colors. You will need to do multiple coats to make sure you have a solid color all the way around. You also need to paint the lip of the jar as that may be noticeable once the lid is back on.

Once your jars have fully dries, look up kawaii faces online. A quick Google image search will more than suffice. Choose what faces you like and using a pencil, lightly sketch your chosen face onto the jar on the flat side of the jar with no raised lettering.

When you have the faces sketched, carefully paint your faces on using your sketch as a guide.

After they dry completely use a brush and paint modge podge all over the jar to set your design and seal the paint.

Now all you need to do is put the metal lid ring back on, (I don’t know the techincal term) after it dries completely, without the top and now you’re  ready to put your items in them and display your jars. I put pens, paintbrushes, pencils and scissors in mine:

If you love these and don’t want to make your own you can purchase them in my Etsy shop NerdCentral13. I can do all sorts of colors and faces so you can mix and match.

I hope you all enjoyed this DIY post! If you happen to make it show me pictures! Use #collinswoah13 or #collinswoahscorner so I am sure to see them!

The Last DIY of the Week!

Vday gift idea to make for your friend or significant other with a nerdy twist.

Okay guys, hello and welcome back!

As the title says, this is my last DIY of the week. So sad, I know. 😦 BUT the fun is not over yet! Today I will be going over how to make a cute little Paopu fruit plush to share with someone you want to be in your life forever ❤ (It can be romantically or not, just remember that!)

So here is what you will need:

img_0370

To get started you will need to cut out your Paopu fruit from the coloring page you printed out. This will be your pattern for your plushie. Once it is cut out, trace around it on your pieces of felt and then cut those out.

When you have your two yellow starts cut out you will pin them together around the edges. Next you will either be sewing the entire thing with a sewing machine or by hand. I personally used a sewing machine. (I’m also sure you could use fabric glue too but I personally have never done that) If you are hand sewing (you go, girl! Or boy!) you will be using a whip stitch (search YouTube for tutorials on how to do a proper whip stitch). You will sew almost around the entire start but leaving one of the edges of the star unsewn. With your unsewn side you will be using that to pull your star inside out.

With your star inside out, it’s actually the right side out. Use either a pen or a pencil to help push your points all the way out. Once it’s fully reversed, you will be using stuffing to stuff your star. This is your choice on how fluffy or not fluffy you want your plushie. When you get your desired fluffiness you will need to hand sew your open edge closed. Again, using a whip stitch.

Once your beautiful star is all sewn up you will need to attach the leaves! Using any kind of fabric glue, choose how you want them to be arranged and on which edge and glue them all. Leave the star upright while it dries completely and then you’re all done!

This is how mine turned out once completely done:

Doin’ More DIYs With Collinswoah13

Another fun and nerdy V-day gift DIY!

Hello and welcome back to CollinswoahsCorner my beautiful internet friends!

Like I told you all in my last blog this week will be filled with DIYs! All handmade gift ideas that you can make for your friends or significant others for Valentines Day! Yay!

Today I will be showing you how to make a cute Pokemon painted pot to make your greenery a little nerdier. So this is what you will need:img_0375

So to get started you need to decide what Pokemon you will be painting. Just like my last DIY post, I chose Bulbasaur just because my man love him so so so much! I recommend finding a good picture of your Pokemon on Google images or something to have a good reference. Once you have that, its time to get started!

First paint your pot the color of your chosen Pokemon’s skin and let it dry. Next you will need to use a pencil and sketch on your Pokemon’s features like so:

Once your Pokemon’s features are sketched on, it’s time to outline and paint them in. Make sure you let each color fully dry before applying the next. Make sure to also apply the appropriate number of coats to the pot so you get the crisp and bright colors. Once finished with all your painting let your pot fully dry. The next step is to take a brush and paint on your Modge Podge all over the pot, giving it a nice and even coat. This will dry clear and seal your pot, as well as make it appear shiny.

Now that your pot is painted and properly sealed you can decide to plant an actual plant or succulent in your pot. I personally don’t have the time to keep a plant alive (or the sunlight) and this is also a gift. I don’t want to set the expectation with my boyfriend that he MUST keep this plant alive or else. Now that’s just not nice or fun. So I opted to use to foam pot filler, a fake succulent and moss to make my pot look full and pretty. And this is what my finished product looks like:

And there you have it! I hope y’all enjoyed this DIY and like always, let me know what you think and if you do this DIY or something like it PLEASE leave pictures in the comments as well as let me know how it went 🙂 And until Friday, with another and final DIY of the week, stay classy and sassy friends! 😛

Valentine’s Gift Ideas with a Nerdy Twist

Hello and welcome back guys!

So this week since Valentine’s day is coming up, I thought I would do a couple DIYs that are easy, cheap, fun and great gift ideas for your significant other or friends! I’m doing a DIY each day this week (just the days I post, so Monday, Wednesday, and Friday).

Today I will be going over how to create a cute and fun piece of wall art with perler beads! This is what you are going to need:

007

You also need to decide what you want to make. I picked Bulbasaur because my boyfriend is absolutely in love with Bulbasaur. So once you make your choice just Google what you want and add perler pattern or perler or even crosstitch because you can use crosstitch patterns as well.

Once you have your pattern its time to create! Be easy on yourself because your fingers will shake and you will knock a bead out of place a time or fifty. Just have patience, take a deep breath and forge on even when you don’t want to. It will be worth it.

When you get done with your pattern and it looks all beautiful on the peg board it’s time to fuse it all together! Make sure to have a flat surface to work on and plug your iron in. I personally use the wool setting to fuse my patterns together. Place some wax paper or parchment paper on the design and place the iron on top. Move around until all beads are fused and you get your desired level of melting. Don’t worry too much if the side you’re working with isn’t turning out exactly as you want it to because you always have the other side to fall back on.

Now that everything is fused together take the iron off and let your creation cool for a minute or two. While it is still warm flip the peg board over with the creation facing down and separate the two. Now peel the paper off your design. Now that it’s free and still very warm, place on a flat surface and put either heavy books, board games, or something weighted and flat on top of the creation while it cools the rest of the way to ensure it stays flat. I would let it cool for a half hour or so.

Once your creation has cooled, it’s time to assemble your art! Take the frame and remove all the paper stuff it came with and place your creation flat in the frame as you want it. Then place your decorative paper behind that (you may have to trim it to fit) and reassemble the frame back together. And there you go! You have your nerd wall art!

Here’s mine all done and ready to go:
