Tip Thursday: Recycling old Tshirts

DIY backless top pink summer We all have some Tshirts and tops that we’re kind of bored of them. And sometimes we can easily ‘update’ them by adding something new. That’s what I did with a plain Tshirt yesterday: I cut the back of it and added some fine fabric. Because I didn’t have something like a cordon (or something similar), I cut a small piece from my scarf. After that, I took one pen and started to make small marks on the back of the Tshirt: I planned to cut out from the Tshirt approximately 7 cm (2.8 inches). I also marked the holes I was going to cut for the scarf. After I cut everything, I put the scarf like shoe laces and that was all! I’ve took photos to show you the progress, if you have more questions, don’t hesitate to leave me a comment! But I may say it’s a very easy project.


Cu totii avem tricouri pe care nu le mai purtam ca deja ne-am cam plictisit de ele… cea mai buna solutie e sa le dam altora. Dar uneori imi place sa le si folosesc pentru mici proiecte. Cele mai multe le tai si le folosesc la sport, dar de data asta am ales sa fac ceva dragut: Am luat un tricou pe care l-am taiat in spate. In primul rand am facut mici semne cu o carioca, astfel incat sa tai cat decat simetric. Am planuit sa tai o bucata lata de aproximativ 7 cm. Apoi am facut semne mici pe unde ar trebui sa intre panglica. Aveam in minte sa pun o panglica la spate, ca sireturile la papuci. Pentru ca nu am avut nicio panglica, am taiat o bucatica dintr-o esarfa. Dupa ce am taiat tot, am pus mini esarfa prin gauri si gata! Mi-a luat cam 10 minute totul si a fost foarte usor. Mai jos am pus poze cu pasii pe care i-am facut. Daca aveti intrebari, nu ezitati sa-mi scrieti un comentariu. Voi ce faceti cu tricourile de care v-ati plictisit?DIY backless top pink summer

DIY – The White Bottles

DIY white bottles I’ve had an idea recently to paint some bottles in white, to use them as candles holders. It all started when we got a white bottle of Islena – The Beer of Ibiza, when we were on Holiday. I decided to bring it home with me and make more bottles myself for decorating the new place. I’ve finally found some time and determination to do the bottles. The thing that put me off was the cleaning of those nasty labels from the bottles. But I rapidly found a solution: hot water and a hard sponge like this one here. It was quite easy to clean them like this, but it’s not the best treatment for your hands. However, it should last 5 mins for 4 bottles, so it’s not that bad. I know it’s not the most original idea..after checking online I found a lot of similar projects. Anyhow, this is my version and I hope you’ll enjoy it!DIY inspiration

De ceva vreme tot am in minte sa vopsesc niste sticle in alb, pentru a le folosi ca suport la lumanari. Mi-a venit ideea cand eram in Ibiza si savuram o bere locala (Islena) intr-o sticla alba. Mi-a placut mult si-am adus-o acasa, asa ca am hotarat sa fac mai multe, sa arate totul mai frumos. M-am apucat greu de proiect pentru ca mi-era groaza sa spal sticlele de tichete – stiti si voi ce greu se duc! Dar repede am gasit o solutie super rapida: apa calda si un burete de spalat vase, mai abraziv, ca cel de-aici. Mi-a luat cam 5 minute sa spal 4 sticle. A fost rapid, insa putin neplacut pentru maini. Inainte de-a ma apuca, azi, m-am uitat putin pe net si-am gasit o gramada de idei similare. Stiu ca nu e cel mai original proiect, insa va ofer versiunea mea, poate va inspir!DIY white bottlesDIY white bottle– Use the magazine/newspaper to cover the surrounding area so you can protect it

– You can find the paint spray in big stores with housing and gardening products

– Folositi revista/ziarul pentru a proteja de vopsea zona din jur

– Eu am luat spray-ul dintr-un magazin gen Dedeman sau Praktiker.
DIY white bottlesYou can see that the paint wasn’t spread even. Maybe also because of my zero experience with this. However, I think it looks quite nice like this! What do you think?

Se vede putin cum vopseaua nu s-a intins uniform. Asta si din cauza experientei mele egale cu zero.. Dar nu conteaza, mie mi se pare c-a iesit destul de bine! Ce credeti?DIY white bottlesHere you have another easy idea, totally different from mine:
