If you have some 9mm and 12mm SupaWood offcuts lying around at home, Dremel will show you how to put these to good use. This project also introduces the new Dremel Moto Saw, due to be launched in South Africa in the new future, but hopefully before Christmas as this is one tool I definitely want to add to my collection...! - See more at: http://www.home-dzine.co.za/crafts/craft-dremeladvent.htm#sthash.7kKBHheW.dpuf

I saw a rustic cupcake stand on etsy and realised how easy it would be to make one. A few scraps of PAR pine and you can make a 3-tier rustic cupcake or cake stand for a special occasion or a DIY wedding celebration.

I have been wanting to make a dandelion triptych for ages and a recent experiment using relief paint and aluminium foil to make a picture frame got me to thinking about the perfect idea. My dandelion art is on SupaWood and uses relief paint, which is then covered with Rust-Oleum Universal metallic - titanium silver spray paint. I love it...!

Here's an easy way to add a special touch to your next get together with a personal firepit. The tabletop firepit uses gel fuel to light up and provide a touch of ambience.

I love using self-adhesive aluminium roofing tape for projects. It's easy to use and a roll goes a long, long way. This year I'm making artwork that can be hung for Christmas, or to add to my collection. The design is a curly-whirly tree that stands out nicely once the aluminium tape is applied.

If Santa brought you a Dremel VersaTip or VersaFlame for Christmas, chances are you can't wait to start using them. Here's a very crafty way to use your new Dremel tools to create woodburnt art for a feature wall. All you need are a couple of pieces of timber or board, your Dremel VersaTip or VersaFlame and a couple of picture hangers.

It can be frustrating when catering for a special event or party and not being able to find nice cookie cutters. During December I made a variety of Christmas cookies - and couldn't find any nice cookie cutters and ended up making my own shapes. Recycled aluminium cans are perfect for making your own cookie cutters.

This laptop stand or lap tray is perfect for anyone who finds themselves working in a situation where a table or desk isn't available. I made this laptop stand for my son, who is presently doing studies and either sits on his bed or couch. The laptop stand has holes that allow for air circulation, and even a slot for your iPad or smart phone.

With all the do-it-myself mini-renovations going on at the moment, one involves moving the front gate. I was left with a blank wall close to the back gate and thought it might be the perfect place to mount a custom house number plaque. If you fancy making your own house number plaque it's very simple.
