Angela’s Top 5 DIYS!!!

Hey guys! This week we have been given the assignment to make a top 5 list. I have chosen to do my top 5 list about my choice of the Top 5 DIYS. Let’s get started!

Criteria:

  • Easy To Make
  • Affordable
  • Safe To Make
  • Fun
  • Time Consuming

1. OREO Milkshake
Info:An OREO Milkshake is a quick and easy snack to make when in a rush and looking for adrenaline. All you need to make it is 6 or 7 Oreo’s, a cup and a half of milk, three scoops of ice cream (any flavour), whipped cream, a blender, a straw and a glass for your milkshake. All you have to do is plug-in the blender and pour in the Oreo’s, the milk and the ice cream. Make sure you blend it until it’s smooth. Finally pour it into the cup and add the straw and some whipped cream. Voila! It’s ready to be served!

2. Wire Rings

Info: If you are feeling crafty and you would like to make jewelery, try making wire rings! It is way to hard to explain how to make an infinity wire ring verbally so watch the video from the link down below to learn how to make one. https://youtu.be/oaTk-_0AyE0

3. Sharpie Mugs

Info: Looking for a way to customize your mugs? Try making sharpie mugs! Sharpie mugs are extremely easy to make but they are also easy to mess up so follow the instructions carefully. All you need is a mug, a sharpie, an oven, a timer, white vinegar and a cotton pad . Start by taking the vinegar and pouring a bit on the cotton pad. Now, clean the mug with the cotton pad to take off any oils or dirt that may be on the mug.Make sure your fingers do not touch the surface where you will be drawing. Start drawing! Make sure that you don’t make any mistakes or change your mind when doing this DIY. If you do, you can use your cotton pad and vinegar to clean it but it will not work up to 5 minutes after your work has been drawn. I recommend practicing what you want to write or draw on a piece of paper before you draw on the mug.When you are happy with your design, pop your mug into a un-pre-heated oven for 30 minutes at 350°F. Turn off you oven after 30 minutes and crack the door open. DO NOT take the mug out just then so it can cool completely and that there won’t be any cracks. You can bake your mug twice to really set in the sharpie drawings. Once your mug is out, it will look exactly the same but there will be a glaze on it and your drawings will be permanent.

4. Watercolor Sweatshirts

Info: A watercolor sweatshirt is basically a white sweatshirt with watercolor paint on it. All you will need to make it is a sweatshirt, a watercolor dye kit, a plate, a sponge, a cup filled with water, a paintbrush and a piece of cardboard. First, take you cardboard and put it in between the front and the back of your sweatshirt so the water doesn’t soak through. Dampen your shirt with your sponge and the water. Mix the watercolors that you like on the plate. Paint your shirts with your paintbrush, when done leave it to dry. And you are done!

5. DIY Balloon Chocolate Bowls

Info: A DIY chocolate bowl is made from chocolate, balloons, ice cream and your favourite toppings. As extras, you will need an ice cream scoop, a needle, a plate, a bowl, a spoon, parchment paper, an oven tray, microwave and a freezer. First of all, lay a sheet of parchment paper onto the oven tray. Melt some chocolate in a bowl in the microwave for 2 minutes and stir it every 10 seconds. Take the spoon and make mini puddles of chocolate on the parchment paper to be a base for the bowl. Blow up a balloon to a small size and dip it in the chocolate. Do this to all the balloon bowls you make. Put the balloons over top of the mini puddles and stick the tray in the freezer for about 1 hour. After taking the tray out, pop the balloons and peel them out of the chocolate bowls. Peel the bowls of the parchment paper and plate them. Fill the bowls with ice cream and other toppings and it will be ready to serve!
