DIY Crafts That You Can Do To Spruce Up Your Home


If your home needs sprucing up a little, but you're tired of all the commercially styled things out there for sale, then why not take it amongst yourself to create your own interesting pieces? Items that nobody else will have in the world because it's been uniquely put together by you.
Here are some ideas to get your mind flowing.

Lights
There are so many fascinating ways you can make light shades and holders. You can use virtually anything you have lying around your home. A good place to look is in the recycling. Plastic and cardboard are great to cut up into pieces and stick back together in an intricate way, in order to make patterns. You can make a light shade out of plastic spoons or folded up card, and the results are incredible, leaving your wall painted in shadows!
If you are a candle lover, then glass bottles and jars work wonderfully with a flame. Decorate a mason jar with paint, leaving out some areas. When you place a candle inside, you will see how the light breaks through the gaps you left, leaving a magical glow. These work wonders in a garden too, as well as any room.

Art structure
If you fancy your hand at sculpting, now's a better time than any to explore. Whatever medium you would like to work with, it's important to familiarize yourself with it and get a full understanding of how to manipulate it. If you wanted to work with metal, for example, you will need to have all the suitable welding supplies that give you the ability to heat it up, bend it and cut it however you see fit.
Your sculpture doesn't necessarily have to look like anything in particular. You can just class it as an abstract piece, and then people can interpret it however they want!

Paintings
If you consider yourself a bit of an artist, then why not whip out the paints and choose your canvas? This could be a literal canvas, or you could use a wall instead. It's your house, so if you want to go wild on the boring wall in your living room - go for it!
If you want something quite detailed, you may want to plan a little beforehand on a smaller scale, like in a sketch pad. Then once you know how you're going to proceed, you can do so for real.
If you prefer not to plan, that's fine too. Let go and see what your creative juices allow you to do. Put on some inspiring music, clear your mind and paint a whole new world.

Now you have some ideas; you can start thinking about what you'd like to do. Remember, there are no restrictions because it's your home and you can do what you like. So do some research, browse through more ideas and then start experimenting.

You may end up making a deliciously stunning wooden chair, that catches the eye of someone, and they commission you to make them something! - Who knows where this could go…

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
