3 DIYs I'm dying to try

I have a nasty habit of keeping tabs open in my browser for...ever. I see something I want to read/make and I save the tab every time I shut down just so I will remember to go back to the idea. However, I could just create a post here and share some of those fun DIY projects that are catching my eye; maybe we'll all benefit, right? (and maybe I should just 'pin' them and call it saved, right?!)
This super fast and easy DIY wool cape from P.S.- I made this....yeah, love it! It would be so easy to add some trim to this or add a pocket, etc. Good basic idea! I confess that I haven't worn a poncho yet, but I really think they're here to stay for a while, so I think I'll give one a try. I think the fabric you choose will determine if it's more of an 'on trend' sort of piece or not. I'm wanting one in a brown herringbone pattern w/some brown corduroy trim, but maybe that's a little too Sherlock?!
Sania Pell read my mind with these easy DIY ornaments (anleitung auf Deutsch hier); honestly, I already had this in my head to do thanks to her book, except she upped it by using festive fabric/ribbon as hangers (I was only going to use twine; her idea is so much better!). I totally have a few ideas rolling around in relation to this project, so I just need to get some of that air dry clay and get a move on!
These lovely muslin transfer photo lanterns on Design*Sponge = true love. How cool is this idea?! If only I knew what photo transfer stuff was auf Deutsch and where to buy it over here. Do any of you know where to get it? Our local Bastelladen (craft store) is the size of a shoebox, so I may just ask for some American stuff for Christmas.

What about you? Any favorites of this bunch? Any special projects you're planning on trying?

Don't know if it works this way with muslin, but the way to transfer photos onto canvas is with modge podge.

Check out this post I found through pinterest.

Just two days ago I was asking my husband if he thought I could pull off a cape. Brilliant timing! I might have to try this...
