Handmade Dish cloths

Handcraft by Grip now presents handmade Dish cloths, crocheted by hand using cotton yarn. These dish and wash cloths can be washed and reused over and over again. Great when aiming for zero waste in the home. I make these as give aways to friends and family, and can also made to order in a variety of colors.

It is easy to make your own cloths, they can be made from many different stitches, and also in mix of stitches. Have a look at Instagram for inspiration.

Spray paint glasses for the party or to give away, it is fun and easy!

I bought these cheap champagne glasses at a second hand store for about 1 $ each (5 SEK), like that it is fine if they breaks or looses their gold color when dishwashing them.

  • Clean the glasses and let dry.
  • Cover the parts that are not to be painted.
  • Read the instructions of the spray paint and spray in one smooth push if posible.
  • Let dry fo a while.

Shabby chic

Shabby chic is becoming most popular decorating style in Sweden, here is an easy tip on how to make a makeover by hand.

A wood item is painted twice with a brown color, later one layer of white paint. Let it dry again and than scrub some of the white paint off so the item get an old, used look. Finally I used decoupage from a napkin to get some colour on the item.
