Painted Bicycle Bells

These painted bells are so cute and clever. There are endless ideas to make the bicycle bells into something else.. food, fruit, animals or other unlikely accessories, or even just a cool pattern. Most of these are by Dring Dring. I want to have a go but I can't choose what to do!

Em's Lego Crafts

 Lego Head Gas Bottle

 Ever since I saw this idea on Pinterest I have wanted to paint our gas bottle to look like a Lego head! And how effective it is!! Such fun! Using up some left over yellow paint our BBQ gas bottle now looks like this:

Can't wait to see the look on the persons face when we have to swap it in! :)

Lego Tissue Box

A very simple project but very effective. A bought plain tissue box cover and wooden beads from the craft shop, glued them on and painted it red! Cut up pieces of dowel would have a better ratio for the knobs but was 20 times the price of these ready made beads. I think it still gives the right idea. Inspiration from here.
