Pink Tile Backdrop DIY

März 27, 2020 by Sarah Moniri

IMG_3245

Tile Backdrops are great for food photography and quite easy to make. All you need is: 

  1. Tiles of your choice ( I choose those ones)
  2. Tile Glue 
  3. Wooden Board 

 

IMG_3191

Apply the glue like in this picture(not too much so it won't squeeze out of the sides) 

IMG_3198

Press them gently on your wooden board and wait at least 2 hours before you lift your board.

TADAA (Michael removed the overstanding wooden areas so make it look cleaner.) 

Have fun doing it!

Student - friendly Thanksgiving Decor.

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I'm german so we don't celebrate it but ever since I celebrated it with my cousin in Budapest, I really liked the idea of coming together and eating with friends/ family. 

We have been hosting Thanksgiving since our 1st year of Medical School but I liked our table last year the most. Leonie is a real Decor Champ and just knows what looks good. Here is what we did: 

ACS_5805

I bought a ton of Hazelnuts, Mandarines pomegranate and some orange flowers. All we need is build a layer of the hazelnuts and lay a mandarine or pomegranate on the carpet of hazelnuts every now and then.

ACS_5806

We didn't have enough vases so we just used our Russian mule cups!

ACS_5803

Here you see how we arranged it! Leonie has a real talent for things like this!!

ACS_5800

I found them at our Local Craft Store - So cute!!! 

 

Hope this helps your budget friendly but creative heart! 

-xo, Sarah.

Student - friendly Halloween Decor

Hello Witches! 

There is only one thing I am excited about being old one day: I will have a whole house to decorate + money to buy decor. YEY. But for now we don't want to spend much $$ on decor supplies and actually managed to make our apartment look festive without much of a budget. Keep the decor things for as long as possible! It's not only cheaper , it is also better for the environment. 

This Skull is from Tiger and was around 4 euros. Leonie ( my roommate) painted it with colors we still had at home.

ACS_5686

This used to be a garland we bought back in 17 for around 4-6 euros I believe. We removed the thread and taped them into our kitchen. 

ACS_5689

Some people have a whole halloween village but so far we only have two witch houses (from 2018)! I want to extend this collection one day! All you need to do is buy some bird houses and get creative:) 

ACS_5690

ACS_5692

The Hocus Pocus one is my favorite :) 

ACS_5694

This ghost garland and the bats are the only new additions to our halloween decor this year. The garland is from our local craft store (Paper concept, Wroclaw). 

ACS_5697

ACS_5693

The best project ever! All you need is black Paper and a scissor. Leonie drew the bat and she and Ranja ( a friend from Uni) cut them out. Leonie taped them to the wall and VOILA. 

ACS_5705

Backdrops from 17 and another painter skull.

This was fun! 

- have a good night, xo Sarah.

To craft: Autumn/Halloween (low budget)

Do you know the feeling of pinning a thousand projects and never get anything done? 

Yeah, same. 

Especially during autumn I like to make my home look festive. As students, DIY is the easiest way to decorate without spending too much $. 

Here are a few low budget projects, I'm planning on doing. 

 

Hope you want to try some of those !!

Student Decor: Family Photo Wall

Oktober 10, 2018 by Sarah Moniri

ACS_0183

When I moved into my first apartment, I didn’t decorate at all because it was only temporary. Nevertheless, I always loved decorating! So I decided to decorate my next apartment in a beautiful, creative way. As we all know: Students are on a budget. They don’t have much money for expensive decor accessories. So what I can always recommend is: Pictures. Picture Walls. Picture displayed at shelves. In general pictures. They can have a huge impact on your apartments appearance and are very affordable.

Tips & Reasons for Photobooks

Oktober 8, 2018 by Sarah Moniri

 

ACS_0176

10 years, I decided it's time to have them printed.  Keep them on my external drive scares me & tbh, I never look through them.  I need physical photos, I need to turn pages & look closely at faces. All those memories need a place to be, and for that's not a computer.
