By Kate on October 25, 2011 H ello there! I finally got around to posting after a hectic few weeks.
ANNOUNCEMENT: A select number of these bracelets are available for sale here . I know, I know.
My line-up of DIY projects was put on hold last week when a friend’s grandfather passed away.
I have an extra cute tutorial today that I know you’re just going to love!
Note from Design Mom: I asked Kate of Mini Eco to create a Back to School themed project for us to try. I think making beads out of colored pencils is brilliant! Wouldn’t these beads be fun for your elementary school-ers to string for a class project?
We’re nuts for nuts.
When the lovely Amanda Thomas of Luv Aj offered to show us how to DIY her signature handpiece, we were ecstatic! Not only are we huge fans of her jewelry , we’ve been dying to adorn ourselves with this ring and bracelet combination.
Chain link bracelets, with colorful threads woven through them, have been popping up here and there . We adore Aurèlie Bidermann ‘s Do Brazil bracelets and thought it was about time we graduate to the ultimate “grown-up” friendship bracelet.
You should all know by now that we are all about stacking bracelets on our wrists. The more, the better.
It’s been awhile since our last bracelet DIY . I don’t know about you, but our wrists have been begging for another colorful addition for months now.
I've always loved taking everyday items and making them into something interesting. Ever since I was a little crafty kid I loved devouring books that taught me how to make little dolls from clothespins, beads from rolled up magazines, and little fairy ornaments from wire and fake flower petals.
This was one of my favorite crafts to make because it is really relaxing just like knitting and crocheting! This is just like making one of those paracord bracelets, except with yarn. I got some neato small yarn just for making these! Here is what you will be making:
You will need : - A piece of leather, approx. 22cm x 10cm (approx. 8.7" x 4") - Scissors - Leather glue or super glue - Thread - A snap button 1. Cut an oval piece of leather, approx. 22cm x 10cm (approx. 8.7" x 4").
I’ve been itching to make myself some jewelry inspired by Aurélie Bidermann’s “Do Brasil” line. Since I don’t have 300 Euros lying around, this looked like a design I could recreate on my own.
