This week’s trendy DIY finds include how to make cookie dough brownies, free bracelet stringing tutorial, how to make a terrarium for kids, trendy throw free crochet pattern, and a free sewing pattern for a weighted blanket.
This week, I took DIY finds straight from my inbox. Some are good weekend projects, while I have a couple blankets that may take a bit longer, but will make great pieces for your home after!
Last week’s edition of Thrift Store Thursday featured this vintage ribbed glass footed ice cream sundae bowl. You can find out more about them, see what to price to at, and how to display them.
I also shared a review answering your question, Are $40 Target Active Leggings Worth It?
And last week’s Weekly Dose 11, which featured great weekend DIYs.
On my EyeLoveKnots blog, you’ll find:
- 20 Earring Crochet Patterns on Etsy

- And more DIY finds at the Snickerdoodle Create Bake Make Link Party 384!
Monster Cookie Dough Brownies from A BaJillian Recipes:
These brownies have the best of four worlds – delicious brownie bottom, PEANUT BUTTER cookie dough (counts as two!), and a thick, gooey chocolate ganache on top! Holy cow, need I say more? Also seems like a pretty quick make looking at the recipe.
Crystal Bracelet C618 from Fire Mountain Gems (Free Jewelry DIY with Photo Tutorial):
I was actually just talking with a friend about wanting to make some crocheted tube bracelets when I saw this one pop into my inbox. While it’s not crocheted, it still takes on that tubular shape that intrigues me. It’s actually hand stitched with a variation of the right angle weave. Unlike many other gallery designs from Fire Mountain Gem, this one includes a photo tutorial so you can create your own! Score!
Dinosaur Terrarium for Kids from Crafts by Courtney:
Terrariums are so popular right now! I just love this variation perfect for a kid’s room! Looks super easy to put together, and customize with your little one.
Mud Cloth Inspired Throw (Free Crochet Pattern) from Red Heart Yarns/Yarnspirations:
This blanket pattern was been out for a while now, and every time, I look at it, and look at it. It so interesting with the mix of prints! You could even work up a smaller variation to turn into a pillow and/or wall art!
How to Make a Weighted Blanket (Free Sewing Pattern with Photos) from Cutesy Crafts:
I have heard of weighted blankets in the past, but never really paid much attention until this blanket. There are tiny pellets added throughout the blanket to make it heavy. I am intrigued by the idea of the heavy blankets helping to give better rest. Now, I feel like I NEED one of these to try out! The photos really make it look quite easy to sew up, but a little time consuming.
