4 Things that Caught my Eye

I know cacti are easy plants to look after as they relish a lack of water, but if you want even more low maintenance plants make your own. These DIY painted rock cacti are so cute and would make a wonderful handcrafted gift. Even better, get the kids to make them! Find out how at Salt and Pepper Moms.

This photo doesn’t do justice to Sena Runa’s quilled paper art which she sells on Etsy. Turkish-based Sena folds and curls and quills coloured paper in all manner of things from flora and fauna to dancers and hot air balloons. You can follow her on Instagram.

Want a new take on sushi? Japanese purists might be horrified but if you find the sushi rolling fiddly, try making these sushi donuts, adding whatever toppings tickle your fancy. Watch the video on Bloglovin’ The Edit.

Although embroidery is not a craft I’m drawn to do, I am attracted to the work done by others. This one would have to take the cake as far as originality goes. Raquel Rodrigo, a set designer and artist from Valencia in Spain, doesn’t bother with cross-stitching fabric, she does it on walls. Using enlarged traditional techniques she has been installing massive installations in unexpected places around Madrid. Beautiful. First seen via This is Colossal.
