Our family computer bit the dust so my posts are going to be few and far between. However, yesterday I was a guest post over at Simply Homemade as part of her bow series that she is doing. So much fun! Here is the post I shared over there but I recommend heading over to her blog to see her fun ideas as well as the other guest posts.
I used to love t-shirt transfers when I was younger, but eventually got fed up at how the image would (inevitably) crack and crease over time. But! A few weeks ago, I thought - if you can't change the fact that it's going to crack...why not just run with it? And who says they can only be used on t-shirts? This DIY is meant to create a grunge-y, worn in kind of look.
I love love love basics. Maybe it's because they're so easy to customize, or maybe because I know they'll match with everything. Either way, I like my basics to be well made and comfy. If you're the same way, check out Bella - I love the aesthetics of this brand. Their clothing is simple but sexy, providing the perfect base for making it completely your own. I was given the chance to DIY some of my favorite pieces from Bella's line, and here's the first one!
This past summer, Bella Clothing sent me some of my favorite pieces from their simple yet sophisticated collection. I knew their Tri-Blend Hoodie would be a great alternative to the Studded Trench Coat , and kept thinking what an awesome piece it would be for the fall. Not only are hoodies more "wearable", but I used flat dome studs instead of spikes.
When Target approached me about a Converse One Star DIY challenge I couldn't resist, but it wasn't until I saw these Miu Miu glitter sneakers that I had any clue how I was going to give my white sneaks a personality all their own. DIYers have been glueing glitter to their shoes for decades! The most challenging part of this DIY was figuring out what material I was going to use to create the steel toe. I was thrilled to find the little pyramid studs in my own craft closet to complete the look. And though I leave a little trail of fairy dust behind me wherever I go, I have to admit, I love the way they turned out.
If you haven't noticed , I have a bit of an obsession with hearts. I even designed a pair of high waisted jeans with hearts on the knees recently. This got me thinking... it would be super fun (and easy) to add hearts to the knees of almost any pair or jeans! I'm enjoying gathering new pieces for my fall and winter wardrobe, including a few DIY pieces like these jeans. I'll share how I printed mine below... Outfit Details: Jeans c/o Levi's , Blouse c/o ModCloth , Shoes/Jeffrey Campbell, Necklace/My design for ModCloth .
Hello all, I'm Chelsea from Seablanket.com ! I was so excited when Elsie asked me to create a DIY for Tricks & Treats, and I knew just what to make. I love dressing up on Halloween and really wanted to wear something fresh this year - something cute and unique. This Lady Bird Owl Costume is made entirely from items I had around the house, and by settling down with some popcorn and a funny movie i was able to make it in under one hour. The steps for this costume could make so many different animals, all it takes is a little imagination. Materials Needed: Pillow Case Multiple Textured, Colored and Patterned Fabrics (Scraps work great for this project!)
Last week I posted a pic on Instagram of some shoes I was glittering for my friend, Stacy . She wanted a pair of glitter booties like this pair but since they were no longer for sale I decided to make her a pair. I recieved tons of questions about the process and supplies.
Elbow patches are one of my favorite trends this season! Last month, I shared how to hand print hearts on your jeans and we recieved many requests for a patch tutorial! I asked Amanda to show you how she would do it in this next feature.... Enjoy!
