How to: DIY Organic Coconut Honey Lip-balm|DIYbyMoe

DIY Organic Coconut Honey Lip-balm|DIYbyMoe Hey,  I know it’s been a while since I engaged y’all.  This is the case because for the past month I’ve had a lot on my plate.

Leather Bound Notebook- Father’s Day Gift

Hi guys!:) I trust this Nairobi cold isn’t keeping you down. But just in case it is, here’s something that’s sure to brighten your day. It was Father’s Day on Sunday the 19th of this month and I shared a photo on my Instagram (@diybymoe *go follow btw if you haven’t already*) of a leather bound notebook I made my papa and as promised, here’s how I made that:- What I used:- Leather Tons of plain paper Pair of scissors OR X-ACTO knife for that straight cut Needle and Thread Straight ruler How:- Start with resizing your papers to the size of the book you want . I used an x-acto knife I found in the house. You could use scissors for this, however, the knife gives better results where paper is involved. Remember to place your papers on a protective surface before cutting. I used some carton pieces I had from…

DIY Stamped Kitchen towels

For day 2 of #mothersdayweekend, I thought I should stencil a few tablecloths for mom and boy was this project such a fail! Think of this post as a cautionary tale lol. You’ll need Plain Tablecloths Fabric Paint- You could buy these at Freeman’s in Nairobi CBD for Kshs. 80 per container. Stencil Rulers Paint brush OR Sponge   Directions Choose your fabric carefully. You could prewash your fabric before painting to make sure it is clean of any treatment that may keep the paint from adhering. Get sponges or brushes in the correct sizes for your stencil. I used a slightly larger brush and it smudged a whole lot! If you want to mix colors, you could mix on a disposable plate and make sure to mix well before you start using. Test out the paint on a piece of fabric before using it to make sure its the…
