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!)
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!
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!
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!)
What a perfect pair of earrings for breezy Summer days! A simple pair of hoops with custom made tassels. If you’re in the States you can purchase a kit from For The Makers that comes with all you need to make these beauties, but you should be able to find everything you need to create your own from the craft store.
I’m totally in love with this necklace. A little bit arty, a little bit vintage, and very, very unique. You can guarantee no one will have one exactly like yours! Plus you can make yours even more unique by what you add to it - beads, string, leather. A very on-trend piece that’s perfect to add a bit of boho to any outfit!
I love the look of earthy, handmade jewelry. When I save up some money I plan on getting this ring. Sigh. But as you can see, it’s quite expensive! Though these rings don’t have a big ol’ jewel on the top, I still love this DIY because it’s so simple and cheap to make but still has the look.
Though I don’t like eating marmalade, I love the word. It makes me feel warm and happy! So of course I’m loving this marmalade bracelet - especially as the colours are reminiscent of the preserve. If you’ve attempted to braid on chain before and failed (as have I!) then this tutorial goes in to detail on how to accomplish it easily.
In my dream house, I would have a library that has a shelf that you push and… it’s a door! And behind the door there’s a spiral staircase that leads to a secret room. But pretend that you don’t know that in case I one day build it and invite you over. Until then, I will make one of these awesome faux book jewelry boxes! There are lots of faux books out there but they are all… very fake looking. You want your secret box to look passable! Even better, you can download and print the Little Women book cover from Dream A Little Bigger so you can make your own. I promise that if I come over to your house and see it on your bookshelf to not look in it!
You probably don’t have the tools on hand for this craft, but I think it’s worth it to make this amazing bracelet! I love the simplicity of a plain resin bracelet, but of course you can add anything to the resin before it sets. All you need is the basics - a bracelet mould and resin! You can wear this bracelet with anything - but I have to say it has a real Wintery style to it and looks great with the white knit jumper!
These really are incredibly simple to make - all you need is lace, some stiffener and hooks! For a bit of colour you can add paint in colours or metallics (like in the bottom two pics) or plain white in the top pic. This way you can make earrings to match any outfit you have! If you’re feeling adventurous, you could even add some beads or tassels to take them to the next level!
I always try to feature short hair tutorials but sometimes they’re hard to come by. That’s why I like this ‘hair jewelry’ - you can wear this on short hair as well as long - the two flowers are attached to bobby pins. This is so customisable, and you could even wear these as a cardigan clip!
If you’re keen on making yourself a piece of jewelry but want to start with something easy, then this simple but fun faux horn is a great place to start! I love the gold dipped top (or you could do bronze, silver, pink!) You can leave it on it’s own on the necklace or add a couple of other charms to the mix. Whatever you decide, you’ll end up with a piece that’s as unique as you!
What a great way to use up those lonely one of a pair earrings! These bracelets are easy to tie together and would make a great gift for any fashion forward mum for Mother’s Day!
One of the reasons I love ‘plain’ pieces of jewelry is because they are so versatile - they add something nice to a ‘busy’ outfit, simplicity to a plain outfit and you can easily mix them with other pieces of jewelry. This beautiful copper cuff ticks all the boxes and is so easy to make - just make sure you sand the ends so you don’t hurt your skin!
