Clothing. Button Garland. I have an appallingly large stash of buttons in my crafting arsenal.

Button Garland

I thought it’d be fun to crochet up a simple button garland to use as decor for the tree, or an accent on the mantle, or even as “ribbon” on presents. All that’s needed is the chain stitch. I slid all of my buttons onto a ball of yarn before starting. I then chained 20 stitches, slid a button into the chain, chained 5 stitches, slid a button into the chain, chained 5 stitches, and so on, until I’d chained the last button into the garland.

I chained a final 20 stitches and finished it off. Photos: Courtesy of Ashley Weeks Cart. Wednes-diy. A few of you have asked about the amazing rope swirl tapestries in our new store displays and you’re in luck because one of our display artists put together a tutorial on how to make them!

It looks like such a fun rainy day project. what you need: a large piece of cardboard, black marker, scissors, rope in various sizes and colors, neon twine, pompoms. use a variety of different colors and textures to create a fun swirl – these purple and orange tassels are just another piece of string woven in with the others! Once you’ve got it down, you can make a whole bunch in different sizes and colors, to create a whole wall tapestry just like the ones in our stores :) i can’t wait to try this!

I am sometimes asked how I style my hair, and while my method is far from perfect, I thought I'd show you how!

Sea of Shoes: HAIR HOW-TO

My hair is pretty straight and fine naturally and I always let it air dry. Since I go about three days between washes, I like to curl it on the first day and let it mellow out into some nice waves over the next two. Let's get started! If your hair doesn't hold curl very well then you may want to put a palmful of curling mousse in it when it is halfway dry. First I comb out all of the tangles and apply a liberal amount CHI Iron Guard Protection Spray to prep my hair. (though I want to upgrade to one of the fancy new ones from Sultra soon!) When I'm done curling the bottom section, I mist it with Bumble and bumble Spray de Mode and comb through the curl with my fingers.

Ahh!! If you want to dress it up a little, you can do a braided headband look! Find a spot on the opposite side of your head and pin it so that it blends in naturally with the rest of your hairstyle.
