Selamat Hari Raya u’olls!
Maaf Zahir Batin kalau ada tersalah type in my blog / FB / Instagram (depending on where u follow me at) and i f i have offended you in any way.
It’s the 2nd Raya as husband & wife and it’s even better now!
We learnt from our mistakes last year on raya visiting (it was a lil chaotic) so kita plan swee-swee this year.
I also did a few DIY jobs this year even though it was last minute. But mad happy cos i didn’t spend much on them cos most of it were DIY-ed using some recycled materials. If you follow me on Instagram then you’ll probably have seen this already!
One night, my itchy fingers rolled some ribbons and i got this.
These aren’t perfect so i rolled few more until i get it almost right.
and then i found some leftover chiffon and then get the edges burned.
and made them into chiffon poppies!
Lepas tu tak tau nak buat apa ngan all these poppies. But i remembered something.
i had some extra burlap strings and satin ribbons so i gave my cookie bottles a makeover!
next few days, while looking for curtains for the home, i dropped by Chinatown to get some fabrics to get materials for cushion covers.
Cos i just can’t get a nice plain Tiffany Blue cushion covers that are not too kerawang-ish. u get what i mean?
Made this for my office. colour and design is so yummy!
then i started on the materials for the living room cushion covers.
ta-dah! my cheap cheap cushion covers at less than $20.00 for all 5 pcs.
remember the rolled ribbons earlier? I grabbed the extra Ikea vase i had and made it into our coffee table centerpiece.
This year we also added a few new furnitures to replace some of the pass-me-downs and our home is finally raya-ready!
Although i really wish it is always this spick & span lah. hahahaha
till next entry!
