DIY Découpage Floral Bag When H&M asked us to DIY a boho-inspired item for their summer issue, découpage was the first thing that came to mind. Honestly, does it get any better than customizing a simple handbag with a brilliant floral print? However you create it, it’ll be satisfying to know that you’ve designed yourself a one of a kind bag! You’ll need:a handbagcotton fabric with a large floral patternpainter’s tapeMod Podgecraft paint2 small plastic dishes2 brushesscissors Start by taping off the edges and hardware of the handbag. Squeeze a dollop of colored craft paint into a small disposable container. Allow the first layer to dry completely. While the paint dries, carefully cut out a handful of flowers from the fabric. Arrange them onto the painted section of the bag. Remove the painter’s tape when the Mod Podge has dried clear and your floral handbag is complete! (all images by HonestlyWTF)

Maxi Skirt Tutorial The Maxi Skirt. They’re everywhere right now. They’re long, they’re flowing, and the best part is they’re comfortable. They bring a feminine bohemian vibe that I can’t resist. Anthro sells a couple of styles that I love here and here (if only I could rock horizontal stripes like the model): But for around $100, why not make 5 of your own? Materials Needed: 1.5-2 yards 60″ wide knit fabric (hip measurements greater than 38″ will need closer to 2 yards) 2″ wide elastic (for measurement see below) Ballpoint needle Pieces to Cut: From Elastic: Pull elastic around waist how you’d like to it sit in the finished skirt, add 1/2″ to that length, and cut. From Knit Fabric (write your measurements as you follow along and you’ll have your fabric cut in no time!) For the waistband, cut a piece of knit fabric that is approximately 6″ longer than the length of your elastic and 5″ wide. Next, decide how long you want the skirt to be. Top Panel: 13″x40″ Middle Panel: 13″x50″ Bottom Panel: 14″x60″ 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

LOVE AESTHETICS | by Ivania Carpio DIY Bleach Tie Dye Last summer, we were obsessed with shibori indigo tie dying. No, really . . . we just about dyed anything white in sight. So when Free People asked us to include a DIY in their guest blogger series, we knew a new tie dye project was absolutely in order. And as the weather is beginning to warm up, what better time than now to start experimenting with reverse tie dye using bleach! Black tees and tops: watch out! To make a grid-like pattern, fold the shirt like an accordion and bind it between two pieces of wood or other flat shaped objects. Before you start bleaching, make sure you are wearing gloves and working outdoors or in a well ventilated area. The rusty brown color will slowly fade into a beautiful lighter shade as it begins to set. Your reverse bleach tie dye shirt is ready to wear! (top image from here, rest of images by HonestlyWTF)

Easy Finger Crochet Friendship Bracelets My grandmother taught me to crochet with my fingers when I was about 5 or 6 years old. I used basic twine to make bracelet after bracelet when I was at her house. This is a fun easy craft to teach younger kids and to make easy layering bracelets for yourself. I like using baker’s twine, leather lacing and colorful string: The leather or suede lacing makes great accessories: Use a thicker rope or fabric scraps for a different look: Love sailing? P.S.
