I bought this handbag at the thrift store a while back. I loved the color. The shape of the bag wasn't my style, but I knew I could do something else with it. These are my creations. Other than the bag the only supplies I needed were a few beads, a needle and thread. My favorite thing about repurposing things is that most of the hard work is done for you.
How to Make a Fork Bracelet DIY Fashion and Craft Tutorials | Stars for StreetlightsStars for StreetlightsI'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. The first time I saw my friend wearing a bracelet made from a fork a few years ago, I knew I had to try it (*ahem Carly ;)). I wrote up a tutorial a while back, but I've had some questions about the directions I gave so I decided to make a proper tutorial with a video! :) (Please excuse my intro, if you can't hustle your website on your Youtube channel, where else are you supposed to do it?
Growing up by the beach in Southern California, the ability to knot a macrame bracelet was practically a right of passage. Although those days are long behind us, we’ve never forgotten the ever-so-simple square knot technique. This time, however, we’re replacing hemp and wooden beads for more updated elements like colorful nylon cord and glossy metal charms.
Yes I am obsessed with polymer clay. Its such a fun material to work with because if you mess up... you just mash it all up and start again. Today's DIY is a spin off of this project that I did a little while back. Knead the clay with your hands to soften it up.
I have a bangle obsession...and I have a deep love for polymer clay . I am definitely keeping the polymer clay section at Michaels in business. I have quite the collection going, which is filling up our kitchen panty pretty quickly.
Donnerstag, 3. Juni 2010 Vor ein paar Tagen wurde ich von Les Mads auf wunderbare Lederschleifenarmbänder aufmerksam gemacht und erinnerte mich dunkel an die bunten Lederreste, die sich doch noch irgendwo in den Tiefen meiner Nähschatzkiste verstecken mussten. Nach kurzem Durchwühlen fand ich sie und das nächste Projekt für meinen wöchentlichen Bastelabend mit Svenja und Anna stand fest. A couple of days ago I saw these beautiful leather bracelets over at Les Mads and remembered some leather leftovers I had.
I have an extra cute tutorial today that I know you’re just going to love! This beaded bracelet is super easy to make and ever so fun to wear. I saw a similar bracelet to this one recently at Bloomingdale’s while I was pulling products for a fashion post. So I thought these might be kind of cool to make.
As you all have probably seen ~ these woven bracelets are all the rage right now. Hello, my name is Kellie & I’m a sucker for trendy things. I really am. Gosh, darn it. There’s tutorials out there like crazy, so I wont even try to subjected you, to one from me. However, this post is about a “golden” tip & of course, my favorite Spring colors.
Here’s the second DIY I led with with BurdaStyle direct from the MAGIC floor. We did these bracelets on Wednesday, the final day of the show. It was a perfect project to wrap-up with because it was fast and easy. I think we were all feeling a little bit like the walking dead after spending the 4 days running around Las Vegas 20 hours a day. Photo courtesy BurdaStyle The supplies are simple: chain + ribbon.
