Make Coiled Wire

Coiled wires (also called retractile cords) are great for keeping long wires tidy and together. Their springy nature allows them to be stretched and then return to their coiled shape, keeping your wire localized and neat looking. Making your own coiled wires is super easy, and will work on almost any type of stranded wire with a vinyl jacket. Turn just any straight wire into a coiled one in under 10 minutes, all you need is a heat gun and a few simple tricks that I’ll share to get the best results. Ready to get coiled? Let’s make!

Copper & Walnut LED Desk Light

I had this idea of making a desk lamp using copper, walnut and leather. I love the combination of these materials and I thought it would be really cool to create a beautiful light that I could have on my desk and use everyday. In the video I go over the process of coming up with the design for this lamp and ultimately creating it. Definitely watch the video for a much better perspective on the process and the different steps involved. For this instructable however, I decided to show simply the process of creating the ultimate design. Step 1:

Homemade Meyer Lemon Ricotta

Growing up in Italy I developed a few obvious addictions: pasta Bolognese, perfect thin crust pizza, Parmiggiano Reggiano, authentic Tiramisu and anything made with Ricotta cheese. Throughout my early twenties, when dancing all night and sleeping till noon was my thing, I always had a jar of cheap Ricotta in my fridge. Thank goodness I got married and fell in love with cooking! After making my first batch of fresh Ricotta from scratch, I never used store bought stuff again. If you love Ricotta like I do, PLEASE try making it yourself. You won’t believe how much better it tastes

Fringe Christmas trees are fun and easy to make

A simple cone can become elegant fringe Christmas trees in just a few steps. I might be obsessed with fringe. But I’m not worrying about it. Instead, I’m running after my love and decorating my holiday mantel with a trio of fringe Christmas trees. Ridiculously easy to make! Step 1: Start with cardboard cones. Cones can be purchased, which makes it a bit easier. But if youare looking to save a few dollars, you can roll a thin sheet of cardboard (like the back of a notepad) into a perfectly fine cone. Step 2: Add glamour to your trees: Paint

Death By Oreo Cupcakes

They are probably the best Oreo cakes I have ever tried. A lot of cake’s that I have experimented with before are like a vanilla cake with bits of Oreo in them, which didn’t really give them enough Oreo flavor. But these were a lot better. I used a dark chocolate fudge cake mix instead of just a regular chocolate cake mix, which went really well with the cookies and gave the cakes just a little more flavor. So, in this recipe there is Oreo’s in the cake, in the frosting, and at the bottom is a Oreo surprise. That’s
