DIY – PARTY Crates!

We have serious Craft Cat in our Office, Miss Brogan our Photographer is always doing these AMAZING projects on the weekend and we just HAVE to share them with you! We have an easy step by step guide below on how to make your own party ASTRO TURF CRATES! Be the ENVY OF THY NEIGHBOUR!

Things you will need

  • Recycled Milk Crates – how many do you want for your space?
  • Buy a meter square sheet of Astro Turf from Bunnings for about $30
  • Zipties – Cheap as cheap….about a dollar for a packet also from Bunnings
  • Use Sharp scissors or a stanley knife…blunt ones make it way too challenging and we want to eliminate any frustrations ;)
  • You can find different coloured crates or try spray painting them to any gorgeous colour that you’re LOVING right now.

DIY FINAL

STEP 1

Place the turf over a crate.

Use the corner of the turf as a guide for the edges.

Use those sharp scissors to cut the Turf to the same size as the top of the crate.

Alternatively, you could place the turf on the ground grass side down, and put the crate on top and cut out the shape like this.

DIY 1

DIY 2

STEP 2

Wrap the Zip ties around the top crate edges and through the matting of the Turf about a few cm’s from the edge. Tighten to attach the turf to top of the crate. Cut any ends of the ties off after it’s attached. It’s as easy as that!!

Get your cocktail swivels ready babes and PARTY ON!

GAL GANG Jenny Lewis

The magical Jenny Lewis shared her sweet sugary pop song “Just One Of the Guys” from her latest album to be released later this month THE VOYAGER and we LOVED it! The former front woman of Indie darlings Rilo Kiley is someone to swoon over with her dreamy vocals, sassy fashion and delicious mane of hair! Joined by some of her closest friends in her latest clip we are left wanting more. See the incredible Tennessee Thomas on drums (The Like and Alexa Chung’s BFF) Anne Hathaway, Kristen Stewart and Brie Larson dressing in white suits to change into their male counter parts. It’s all fun and games on set and Jenny Directed it herself Whoa, talent much! This song is for any strong, independent single lady out there!!

THE FINAL COUNTDOWN – Splendour Checklist

With Splendour just around the corner it’s time to start organising your festival essentials and without sounding like your parents, it’s so important to be prepared! A few little tips and tricks can be a godsend when your tent neighbours are suffering with the cold and mud while you’re all cozied up with enough supplies to keep you…………….Our number one camping tip that we have found to be an absolute lifesaver is to take two tents. One for getting dressed, making yourself beautiful and holding all of your stuff. The other for sleeping only! Trust us on this, and yes you can thank us later.  Always make sure you have a meeting place sourced out so if you and your gal pals decide to separate, you can always pick a time to meet back at your selected spot – simple! Packing the essentials means that you won’t get caught out watching London Grammar in the pouring rain without your trusty gumboots and poncho or running into the boys from Rufus with mascara running down your face and dirty hair (thank you dry shampoo and waterproof mascara). And lastly, do not; I repeat DO NOT leave the house without your ticket and ID. No one wants to make an emergency trip back home to collect your ID sitting on top of your dresser. Once you’re sure you’ve got those, the road trip begins!

Happy packing POLLY babes!
