3 Things To Make This Week With Blitsy - Week of August 24th

Posted by Meghan Quinones
This week, make a chandelier with faux shells, create a look for less, and add a sparkly tray to your home decor!

Boy, do we have some outstanding projects for your to try this week! The best part is, if you are feeling inspired, you can scoop up the products at a discounted price and get crafty!

First up, we have this seriously amazing DIY Capiz Chandelier. Amanda shows you how to transform this completely unexpected material into circles that look just like shells! You could turn this chandelier into a gorgeous light by hanging it over a ceiling light. You could also hang your chandelier outside and enjoy the chiming of the "shells" hitting one another as the breeze softly blows through them. The choice is yours!

Did you know you can use Mod Podge to seal in glitter? Well, you can! Brittany shows us how to turn a plain wooden tray into a gold, sparkly glam tray to house fun trinkets. This girly tray would be perfect on a vanity to store perfume and pretty polishes, or on a desk as an organizer for all of your office essentials. Either way, you can't go wrong with this gold and glittery tray. Want to make your own glitter glam tray? This How-To will get you on your way!

Last, but not least is a hack your friends will be talking about for months. This DIY Starburst Mirror is the spitting image of the real deal over at Anthroplogie, however, this version is much easier on the wallet. Since the center of the mirror is styrofoam, it makes adding the wires a breeze (no welding or gluing required!). All you have to do is bend floral wire into petals to get the look. This project is so easy and affordable! Want to make your own Anthropologie inspired mirror for your home? Check out the full tutorial here.
