I love the idea of putting hooks on an octopus mural to make it look like you have a super helpful sea creature holding your stuff for you! Octopode butlers for all!
The moment I saw Lara (of “geeky love” wedding invitation fame)’s DIYed squid shower curtain, I just HAD to get my tentacles on it for Home. Not only did she let us feature it, but she gave y’all an awesome hand-drawn how-to. Cuteness ahoy!
Last Thursday, we posted the first of what we hope will be many Offbeat Homies Weekend Challenges. We gave readers a choice of two DIY challenges: nerdy cupcakes with sanding sugar, or faux taxidermied unicorn heads.
Well, the results are in, and no surprise that they are fucking awesome! We’ve got tentacles, TARDIS blue EXTERMINATE cupcakes, a pet rat, and wait until you see the jackalope…
This week I’ve seen octopodes making a surge in popularity online, which is totally fine with me, cause I’ve been a long-time fan of cephalopods. I think every house could benefit from the grace and creepiness of an octopus.
My Christmas decorations are all ocean-themed. The santa on our stocking isn’t on a sleigh, but paddling a canoe, our tree is covered in shells and ocean critters, and our color scheme is turquoise, green, and silver. So, I set out to find some of the best ocean-themed Christmas tree ornaments out there — and came away with a big haul, all sea creatures, some more fantastical than others.
You’ve probably seen Adam Wallacavage’s octopus chandeliers floating around the ‘net before — photos of them have made the rounds for a while now. I was happy to stumble over his other sculptures this week — and I kind of love them even more.
