How To Make DIY Slippers

diy-slippers

“My feet are cold, a lot. I don’t wear slippers too much because they don’t stay on. One day while surfing the web, I came across a pattern for slippers. No directions, no explanations, just a pattern and pictures of the finished product. Today, I had some free time and I already had the supplies gathered up from my fabric stash. So I made these warm slippers, and since there was no directions, I did it my way, which meant a lot of trial and error. So here we go.” w/ photos

How To Make A Tornado Paper Airplane

“The Hoverfly and Hurricane paper helicopters I made previously each performed excellently and were very well received by the Instructables community. To give aviators who liked those birds more amusement, I decided to make another.

I have been very excited to get this up since I think it is sooooo cool… Anyways! enjoy this fantastic piece of art and technology!” w/ photos + video

How To Make Bacon Jello

Bacon jello. Yes, it’s bacon-flavored jello that looks like you’re slicing into a nice, thick slab of home-cured bacon. Think of it less as dessert, and more as a surprisingly edible piece of concept art. This jello has a dairy base flavored with bacon (of course!), a mix of maple syrup and flamed and reduced calvados, and applewood smoke. Want to get fancy? Do this again, but change up the flavorings: breakfast (bacon, eggs, and toast layers), a BLT (obvious), or your own favorite bacon-based flavor combination.” w/ photos

How To Build A Backyard Labyrinth

“My mom has wanted to build a labyrinth in our backyard for a long time. She first walked in a labyrinth many years ago in a park and really enjoyed the experience. From that moment on, the special process of walking a labyrinth was something that she had always wanted to recreate in her own home. My mom turned 60 this past November and as part of birthday celebration my family and I finally built a labyrinth in the backyard. We came up with a rope and steel stake system which was relatively low cost, easy to install and semi-permanent that looks and works great. Here’s why and how we did it…” w/ photos
