waterslide decals + bike chain clock

i’ve been wanting to learn how to properly work with waterslide decals for a while now, so i was thrilled to hear from melinda at little old hat last week. melinda posted a great how-to for working with waterslide decals and she created some pretty adorable mugs in the process. i’ve been wanting to use this process to dress up some old mugs and this makes the whole process clear and easy to follow. click here to start learning and decal-ing!


in other how-to news, april at the hipster home posted a great how-to for creating a recycled bike chain clock. normally i’m not a fan of the way recycled bike crafts look (a little too clunky for me), but this one looks seriously sleek and cool. click here for the full tutorial. [thanks, chris!]


Now I’m very anxious to check out waterslide decals. They seem like the pefect way to customize mugs & other items to make unique gifts for family and friends! Thanks for sharing another great idea!
