This is like a two-fer DIY - cute pearl hairpins and an awesome hairstyle to use them on! Plus, this DIY is as easy as pie - a little hot glue, some pearls and pins and you will be done in a few minutes (just make sure the glue is dry before you start putting them in your hair!). If you want to get a little more creative, you could try painting your pins to match your pearls (which would look amazing in white on dark hair!).
I almost bought a necklace exactly like this online for a lot more than what it would cost to make. In fact, all I need to make this is Fimo clay - I’ve got the gold paint and chain. I think these would make gorgeous gifts too - I know I’ll be making one for at least one relative!
Neoprene is the stuff that they make wetsuits out of - and it’s all over the runway right now! One of the nice things about this fabric is that you don’t have to hem it (and it’s stretchy!). AP&AS has more great tips on how to whip up this skirt and how to use neoprene fabric, so click on through!
I bought some rope with the intention of making a few hanging planters (please see previous posts to hear about how this ended up) and now have a bevy of rope. I was thinking of making some jewelry, but didn’t want to look like a lost sailor. I love ombre so this is perfect - it adds colour but still gives you the neutral of the rope. You could even double dip this to get some more colour - if you have an outfit that you’ve had trouble accessorizing, this is the perfect solution.
Here’s another clever earring DIY for you guys, this time featuring metal pieces cut from….soda cans! How clever is that?! Some people’s creativity amazes me. I love combination of resin and metal, and these would go with so many different outfits (gotta love that!)
I’m not a big jeans wearer - my official uniform is dress, cardigan & leggings. But after seeing this DIY I’m thinking I might need to sew up a pair of leather cuff jeans to add to my routine! If you’re going to make yourself a pair, then make sure you have a heavy duty needle in your machine so you don’t end up with a broken needle.
Lately I have seen some really clever earring DIYs using products that you’d find around your house, like these earrings made from popsicle sticks! You only need a few more supplies that you can find at your local craft store. Make a few pairs in different colours or a couple extra to give as gifts to friends!
This year I decided to start learning French, so I know that ‘Pochette Kitty’ means Kitty Purse. Progress! I’m keen to make this adorable purse for my niece who is a very stylish young lady and loves cats as much as I do, and is in her ‘accessorizing’ phase! Lucille has some amazing DIYs so if you head over to check this out make sure you see her other projects & art too.
I really like the sweet pastel shades of this Sculpey bead necklace combined with the shades of grey. Girly, but not too girly! Sculpey is so easy to craft with and once you get started you’ll find so many things you can make with it. Pro tip though - don’t put your beads in the oven and then forget about them like I did, it does not end well for your beads or oven tray!
Everyone has one - a super comfy, much worn and loved tee that has seen better days. But don’t give up on it yet! Give it new life and a bit of pizazz with some simple stitching and a few snips! If you don’t want to free hand your stitching, get yourself an air dry or washable marker from your local craft store to draw your design first.
I like pretty things (as demonstrated throughout my blog!) but what I like even more are pretty things with purpose. These sculpey ring holders are open to so much customization and when not in use are perfect little pieces of art for your room. If you’re into minimalism go for plain white with a gold stripe, or for something on trend go for the marbling look as seen in the middle. These would make a perfect Christmas gift too (it’s never too early to start making presents!)
It was 24 degrees Celsius the other day and I was pretty sure I was going to melt. Of course, I was wearing trackies and a jumper but regardless, it made me realise that Summer is very close! So it seemed only appropriate to share these fruit wedges that make me think of 50’s starlets lounging by the pool, fruity cocktails with paper umbrellas and the fact that I really need to get a manicure. Which fruit will you choose? (I’m all about those pineapple wedges witthe pom pom!)
Plain tshirts are so cheap these days that I can’t resist buying a few with the plan to decorate them. But inspiration hadn’t hit until I saw this post by the Pink Samurai. There aren’t any Summer Camps where I live so I never got one of those cool tshirts, but that doesn’t mean I can’t re-create one myself! And iron on letters are so easy to use, this is a great project for even the most novice DIYer!
Isn’t it funny how tastes change and yet stay the same?! When i was younger, i would have loved everything about this bracelet except for the fact that it had a gold bow. I related gold to old ladies! Now I prefer gold to silver. But regardless of whether you like gold or silver, this pretty bracelet is still a great way to add a bit of sparkle to your outfit. If you’re not in to using leather, faux leather will give you the exact same look. Even better, this bracelet will go with so many outfits!
Mark my words fellow DIYers, you will be seeing more and more marbled fashion & home accessories very soon! So jump on the bandwagon now and make yourself a very simple but sweet little locket with marble paper. Plain lockets are quite cheap and easy to find at craft stores, or you can purchase the craft kit from For The Makers.
