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.

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

This month I got my school supplies and I love my notebooks but want to write on them because there super cute but only some of them are do you have any ideas how to spice up some of my pencils,bags and notebooks?

as for notebooks, painting the front with chalkboard paint or gloss paint allows you to write on them and erase all the time. The gloss paint allows for you to write and erase with expo markers. I also ALWAYS suggest colorful tape or washi tape to decorate your notebooks! Use sharpies to make cute patterns as well.

Washi tape is also good for pens and pencils as you can wrap them with it. You can also use it for bags but really fabric paint and stencils will do you a lot better. Find some stencils at  your local craft store! add some studs to the front of your bookback in rows and on the shoulder straps

Hi guys, I recently placed a $70 order with a company called FUX JEWELLERY who are based out of Germany. I ordered two pair of plugs that were a couple mm bigger than what I was at at the time because I planned on stretching to that size and using the plugs I bought as…

Hey I have a really tinny room and want to make it look bigger and I also have a really small budget can you help? 😁
  • To make your room look bigger make sure all of your furniture is against a wall. When you have furniture (such as your bed) in the middle of your room it makes it look like it takes up more space and therefore makes your room look smaller. Having everything against a wall gives you more space in the middle of the room.

  • Use your walls! Plain shelves usually run pretty cheap and allow you to have more storage in your room without taking up ground space.
  • Get a big mirror on your wall. Mirrors make rooms look bigger, so if you have a big mirror on your vanity or anywhere in your room (on a wall preferably) it will make your room appear wider!
  • Shoe boxed or shoe box style organizational boxes are V I T A L for your room. You can stack them up in neat order in your closet or against a wall. Any box type storage unit is perfect for a small room. You can decorate boring ones by painting them, using wallpaper, or colorful tape.

How to Paint a Perfect Chevron WallUse a ruler to place small sticker dots, like ones you can buy at walmart that are meant for writing prices on, evenly spread out on a wall. Then use masking tape to go from one dot to the next in a zigzag shape. Do the same on the row above. You may have to cut off some excess tape -you can kind of see in the image where it makes a triangle where the tapes intersect. Follow the edges to cut off the excess and have smooth edges!

This one was made for me, and it’s very pretty -so you should listen to it too ;)

Storage Tip:
Use an empty wine box (which may liqueur stores give away) to store your shoes. You can then hide them under your bed or in your closet.

Hi! I'm wanting to make DIY high waisted shorts!! But can you make them out of regular jeans??

sort of, yes.
your best bet is to go to goodwill and get some mom jeans (that go up pretty high) and cut them into shorts. The best way to do this is to put them on, draw a line relative to how short you want them with chalk, take them off, draw a better even line on both sides, and then cut each side. You can use sand paper to fray the edges or fold them and glue/sew.

A harder way is two get two pairs of jeans of the same color and cut one into shorts. Then cut the top part off of the other one (like the seam that separates the button and belt straps from the rest of the jean) and sew it to the top of the shorts you made. This is harder and doesn’t make them as high waisted, but it’s an option!

Hi, I need some tips on diy clothing without sowing. I have a few tees that are too small on me and I really want to be able to wear them again. Have any suggestions?

unless you cut and glue extra pieces of cloth on there isn’t many ways of making bigger without sewing. However you can cut a tshirt up the back, make a few holes up both sides and use some cute ribbon to create kind of a back corset. You can also just pin/sew/glue a big strip of lace to a cut up the back to make it a little bigger!

Hi! I've got a lot of dried roses that my boyfriend has gotten me over the years and I was wondering if you had any ideas on something I could make with them?

hmm if you spray them with gloss paint you may be able to get them to not break as easily. Then you can make a crown out of them by cutting most of the stem off and wrapping green wire around the leftover stem stump, leaving some room, and doing another one. It’ll make a pretty flower crown! You can also do this and make them hang from your ceiling, doorways, or on a wall for decor. You can get a canvas, paint it a pretty light color, and hot glue the flowers to them either in bunches (with the stems cut off) or spread out, also with the stems cut off to create a pretty 3d decor.
