DIY Frayed Denim Shorts

Hey DIYers, it's summer right now, which means you're probably going summer shopping.... a LOT! Today's DIY should save you a few bucks on your summer haul, because it is DIY Frayed Denim Shorts! These are so easy, and are in style right now, so let's get started!

What you'll need:
- A pair of jeans that you like from the thrift shop! (You can get jeans as low as $3 from Plato's closet!)
- Fabric Scissors (not regular scissors!)
- Tweezers
- Sharpie

Steps:
1. After washing the jeans. put on the jeans.
2. Using the sharpie, make a mark on the jeans where you want to cut them. Please remember: it's better to cut the jeans too long than too short!
3. Take the jeans off!
4. Using the fabric scissors, cut the jeans where you made the mark!
5. Now, using the tweezers, gently pick at the ends of the jeans. Little denim stringy things should start to show!

DIY Gummy EOS!

Hey DIYers,

I haven't done an EOS DIY in my EOS Series in forever, so that is why today's DIY is a DIY Gummy EOS! This is so fun and easy, and you can trick your friends by eating your EOS!

What you'll need:
- An empty and washed EOS container
- 20 gummy bears of the same color! (I recommend Haribo!)
- A spoon
- A refrigerator!

Steps:
1. Using your 20 gummy bears of the same color, melt them in a bowl in the microwave on ten second increments, while stirring them with a spoon in between. It is very easy to burn candy so be cautious if your microwave's volts are very strong.
2.  Pour some of the mixture into the lid of the EOS.
3. Place in the fridge for five minutes.
4. Reheat the gummy mixture
5. Pour it into the bottom of the EOS. You don't need to remove the crate for this step, and the gummy mixture should be covering it!
6. Quickly screw the lid onto the bottom.
7. Chill for ten minutes.
8. Gently unscrew the EOS!

You're done!

I hope you enjoyed this DIY o…

DIY Apple Monsters

Hey DIYers! Today's DIY is a food DIY! I haven't done one in forever, so I thought today was the perfect day for one. These DIY Apple Monsters are perfect for kids, and especially kid parties!

What you'll need: (This makes 4 monsters)
- 1 Granny Smith (green) apple
- 1 strawberry
- Mini marshmallows
- Sunflower seeds
- Mini chocolate chips
- Peanut Butter
- Butter knife

Steps:
1. Cut up a granny smith apple into 4 thick slices (as shown in the photo below!)
2. Cut out a small slit in the back of the apple slices, but don't cut it all the way through to the other side of the apple. This will act as the mouth!
3. Using a butter knife, put a light layer of peanut butter in the "mouth hole".
4.  Slice a thin piece of strawberry, and stick it to the peanut butter on the bottom of the "mouth hole".
5. Poke the sunflower seeds in the top of the "mouth hole". They should go through the apple a little bit! These will act as the monster's teeth!
