Creator of the brand of patterns Kit by Klo, Cloé also uses her talents as a dressmaker in decoration. She made her own cushion covers in an ethnic fabric and, to play the bohemian card, she decorated them with multicolored pompoms.

- 1 m ribbon

- A needle

- Some thread

- A special chalk fabric

- A ruler

How to make these cushion covers: Measure your pillow. Carry these measurements on your folded fabric in half by adding 4 cm to the length and width. Cut the fabric according to the pattern you have just prepared. Using an iron, prepare your hem at each end of the rectangle. Sew your hems at the zigzag stitch. To create the flap of the cover, fold down one of the two ends by folding it right side up. Sew all around the flap at 1 cm from the edge. Grind the corners and fold the flap over the place and iron it. Fold your rectangle in half so that the front is the width of your pillow. Sew 1 cm up and down until flap. With an embroidery thread and a needle, attach the pompoms.

Caroline, from the Carofoliz blog, explains how to make this carpet. A smaller version is possible for the less patient.


Material to realize this DIY:

- Canvas canvas the size of the carpet you want

- A lot of wool

9 - A garland of origami stars

Passionate about DIY, Simone, from the Make My Day blog, is full of creativity. We cracked for its garland of origami stars that we would see perfectly in a room. All you have to do is find some nice paper and start creating twenty stars by following Simone's step-by-step.

Make My Day

Material to realize this DIY:

- Canson paper and patterned paper

- A punch (or equivalent object)

- A wire or a thin cord of 2 m minimum

- A ruler of 40 cm

- A pencil

- A cutter

- A needle

- A support to cut your papire

How to create an origami garland: Prepare the paper strips: 1x30 cm for small stars, 1,5x35 cm for medium stars, 2x40 cm for large stars. Begin folding by making a loop. Pass one of the passers-by in the loop. Tighten your loop as close to one end as possible to form a pentagon. Fold so that it is flat and then cut the shortest excess of tape. Flip the pentagon and fold the edge so that it fits into the big loop respecting the shape of the pentagon. Flip your pentagon. Fold the large band in the shape and so on until there is only one or two centimeters of tape left. Slide the end of the tape into the perpendicular fold. To form the star, pinch each end of the pentagon, the center of the paper will inflate. Create the desired number of stars then create two holes on each side using the punch. Using a needle, put the stars on the cord and tie a knot between each star.
