Earlier this month Lauren and I escaped city life with our dear friend Grace, of Stripes & Sequins, for a weekend chock-full of sun and DIY. With an abundant supply of rhinestone and brass curb chain, we decided to try weaving the components together to make our own collar necklaces. It was fun to see how wonderfully different the pieces turned out - each so fabulous in their own unique way!
- Glue the pieces together with a glue gun or by melting the bottom side of the petals. - Insert the 5 petals into the 10 petals and the 2 middle petals into the 5. See picture. Now that your rose is finished melt the bottom of the rose and push it flat (I used a saucer to push it flat). Once it is flat enough melt the plastic again and push a safety pin into it and secure by laying a small piece of melted plastic over the safety pin.
UPDATE: By popular demand, Zipper Bracelet Kits ($15) and readymade Zipper Bracelets ($20) are now available in the Brit + Co. shop! You know we love turning unconventional materials into wearable accessories. Today, we’re tackling zippers! We figured out 5 simple, beautiful ways to create bracelets, cuffs, and bangles out of metal, plastic, and repurposed zippers.

Last summer I told you how I was cutting up my wedding dress to make all kinds of fun (more useful) projects. I called it "I DO, re-done". It was supposed to be this big event and even had a button. Well as it turns out I'm not a big event person and although I love making things from the endless supply of fabric that is my wedding dress, I wasn't strict enough to do a month of just that. So here and there I share projects made from (yes my ACTUAL) my wedding dress. Anthropologie Inspired Necklace from Wedding Dress
