Hey Everyone!
Welcome to DIYHoard, where I gather up a bunch of DIY ideas i find online (and a few of my own) and often try to add explanations and tips on how to make them your own.
Not only do I post DIY ideas but I also talk about crafting, lifestyle, beauty, food, and whatever else I find relevant!

I will credit everything that I can find credit for.
If you find your post uncredited, let me know and I will fix it right away.

Message me with requests or ideas. Tried something out? Send me a picture!


If I message you back, it will be under the url greatest-treasure, my personal blog.

Interested in co-running? Send me a message :)

I may post things that are considered triggering for some people; this includes talk of dieting, coming out of depression, and relationship talk

Side-Tie Tee 
Cut a sightly loose tshirt or tank up the sides (cut off the sleeves if any to make it a tank) and tie the bottom sides. Pull on the edges so they’ll curl up a little and won’t look so choppy.

How I personally removed 80% of my stretchmarks in 1 application
I made a post about this on this blog a while back, but since I have been redesigning everything it was deleted. 
What you will need:
1/2 cut ground coffee
1/2 cup grapeseed oil
2 small bowls 
Hot water
Warm towels 
Directions: 
Fill one small bowl half way with hot water (can be boiled or microwaved) In the other bowl, mix coffee grounds and grape seed oil. Place coffee and grape seed oil on top of the warm water bowl to heat the coffee scrub. Let stand 3 minutes. Next, scrub stretch mark areas with the scrub for 5-7 minutes. This is going to stimulate blood flow and help tissue repair. The grape seed oil also has antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that help with wrinkles, scars, etc as well as deeply penetrating and moisturizing the skin. Once You are finished scrubbing, wrap warm towel around area and let the scrub soak into your skin for approximately 20 minutes. Shower, moisturize and you’re finished! I had unsightly stretchmarks (deep purple and thin white ones) under my butt and on the inside of my thighs for a few years. After reading about the benefits of grape seed oil and various coffee scrubs in a holistic book my aunt gave me, I made my own version and was very pleased with the results. These are all ingredients that you can find at most groceries stores or in your cabinet already! If you try this, let me know how it works for you :) It is also a great way to help reduce the appearance of cellulite.

love the discussions going on and the messages im getting (whether postive or negative), but this isn’t the blog for that. I took down the post and if you have questions about it (real questions) I’ll be happy to answer them.
I will add something to my page saying that I don’t post trigger warnings and what kind of content i post (that’s sort of a warning) that way people will know if they should or shouldn’t follow my blog. If this blog isn’t for you, then I’m sorry but there are many other DIY blogs with great posts!

I love y’all, but let’s get back to what this blog is about.

I have two empty mason jars - one is the size of the large prego sauce and the other one is the smaller size - and an empty regular size nutella bottle. Any suggestion?

Check out my mason jar tag!

For a quick idea, cover them with glitter spray or washi tape and use them to hold pencils, brushes, or even plants!

my friends are having a birthday party tonight and i don't want to be lame and just get them gift cards what should i make?

How about fun giftcards?
Go to your local dollar store / 99cents store / really cheap store and look for some cute cheap containers whether they be mason jars, chinese takeout style boxes, or whatever else you find. Get some glitter, confetti, tissue paper, or whatever other similar products you find. Get some wrapping paper too, or simply just old newspaper. Now here’s what you’re going to do: you’re going to wrap the giftcard multiple times with the wrapping paper and write a note on each layer. I would write it out beforehand since the first layer is supposed to be the last note/part of the note.  Once you have the gift card wrapped multiple times it’s ready to go in the container! Put a little bit of tissue paper at the bottom, then glitter / confetti, then the gift card, then more tissue paper, then more glitter / confetti. It’ll be really fun and messy when your friend opens it. This will look best in a mason jar since you’ll be able to see inside! Add a cute bow to it too! You can also stick small gifts within the tissue paper like nail polish, cute hair clips, mini lipsticks, eyeliners, candy, tea bags, or whatever other small things you can find!

For other gift ideas, check out my gift idea tag on my blog!

As much as i love all of you, I am asking if you guys could please not send me messages asking me to follow you. They are spamming up my ask and keeping me from reading messages asking for advice and requests. I will start making “like this so i can check out your bog” posts if you guys want me to, but i really need my askbox clear of all follow me messages. I do not follow blogs that are not related to my blog.

Thank you!

Simple tips for loosing weight? No matter what exercises I do or what I eat I still have all this extra fat on me. Is there a specific exercise that helps? Or food?

Losing weight is actually pretty simple, as much as we all hate to admit it; it’s just hard to stick to it. All you need to do is burn more calories than you consume, or eat less than what your body needs to maintain your weight.

First you want to see about how many calories you eat per day.  Start tracking your calories by using myfitnesspal or similar apps or even just using a notebook. As an easier option, you can find out an average of how many calories you need to maintain your weight here.
Now that you have an average of how many calories you need to maintain, start eating less than that. For example lets say you need 2000 to maintain your weight, just cut down to 1800 or whatever you think is best. A good tip is to choose the weight you want to weight (ex: 130) and multiply it by 10 (1300), then that’s how many calories you should eat per day.

Want to speed the process up or want to be able to eat a little more? Start working out! Calorie burning exercises speed up the process or allow you to eat more for your day. If you do a workout that burns 200 calories, you can allow yourself to eat 200  more and still remain on your weightloss plan. You can instead choose not to replenish the calories and speed up your weightloss.

The most important thing to do is make sure you’re not eating too little and that you stick to it! If you mess up on one meal, don’t let it ruin your day; just eat better at your next meal! Stick to it and you’ll start noticing a change :)
