flax & twine for easy craft tutorials and diy projects: Day 1: A Strand of Pearls - a diy ribbon and pearl necklace

I think this necklace actually was the first thing that I made in my jewelry-making frenzy to fill Allie’s Advent Calendar. I love the blue next to the pearls and love the lines the undulating ribbon and smooth pearls make together. This ribbon strand ties in a bow in the back to whatever length your little girl desires.

What a pretty necklace. DIY Leather Wrapped Rings. DIY Tutorial: Wrapped Ring. Double Strand Lace Headband. Today’s headband DIY is how to make a Double Strand Headband.

Double Strand Lace Headband

This headband is made almost exactly the same way as the Single Lace Headband. All you need is 36 inches of lace or ribbon 1 inch width or narrower. I used 1/2 inch width lace from Joann’s Fabrics. 3 1/2 inches of braided elastic 3/8 inch width or larger. Cut the lace so that you have two strands that are 18 inches long. Lay the end of one length of lace over the other as the picture shows. After you have the ends lined up lay the elastic over the top so they overlap by 3/4 of an inch or so. Then with a sewing machine or by hand stitch across the two layers of lace and the elastic. Flax & twine for easy craft tutorials and diy projects. DIY Pumpkin and Candy Corn Earrings.

DIY hex nut earrings

Today is a very special day! First of all, it's Saturday and Saturdays are nice... :) And secondly, I'm officially posting my very first tutorial here today! Tadaaaaaa! The style of the earrings, with the arrowhead form and the chain to make them nice and dangly, was inspired by the lovely blog at a bit of sunshine. She also has a tutorial available to make these arrowhead earrings with leather instead of hex nuts... 12 hex nuts, brass or silver colour (I chose the M3 size which is the smallest I have seen here so far) I recommend using the smallest ones as otherwise the earrings get quite heavysmall metal curb link chain (but any small chain will work, whatever the style) I used 3 cm for each earring22 4mm jump rings earwiresflat nose pliers (prefereably the ones which are smooth so the jump rings won't be dented)round nose pliers (but any pliers with which you can grip the other end of the jump ring will work) Your fingers are sore?

But I was wrong. A few weeks ago I visited the Quilting Cottage in American Fork, Utah. I love the Quilting Cottage, which is not only a quaint little store, but they have a wonderful selection of fabrics. While there, I spoke with Wendy, one of the women who works there… She was making ribbon flower pins for an upcoming wedding. Wendy was kind enough to teach me how to make these fabulous fabric flower pins. 2-4 yards of wire ribbon (depending on how large and tight you want your flower) (I used one and 1/2 inch wide ribbon.)quilting thread or other strong threadsmall amount of felthair clip or pin (or both) 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
