Leather Lanyard Bracelet Maeg-it Yourself « THE YESSTYLIST – Asian Fashion Blog – brought to you by YesStyle.com
Okay, not the best shot of the bracelet, but I couldn’t resist! If you went to summer camp as a kid, you’ll totally remember making lanyard keychains with that brightly colored plastic lace {I had tons of them!} .So I thought, why not do it with leather laces? And I did. So I thought I’d show you how and if you like, you can buy one of mine because I’ve listed a few in my Etsy shop. * Leather laces * Chain * Clasp * Needle nose pliers/Scissors NOTE: There are tons of lanyard-making videos on youtube if these instructions are a bit confusing! * Cut 2 strips of leather laces. * To begin, find the middle of one of your laces and wrap it twice around your finger. * Getting the first and last stitches done are the most difficult, so watch these videos for help. * To secure the end knot, leave your last box stitch loose then with each lace, loop around your nearest loop/under/up through the center, then all the way around. * Using your pliers, open a link in your chain . . .

Outlier DIY | Metallic Crochet Bracelet I have always found the different shapes and textures you can create with crochet really fun. I just learned the very basics (thanks YouTube!) and there’s a lot you can make with that as long as you pick the correct yarn. This metallic bracelet is the first thing I have tried. I have included very detailed steps here, so you can make one even if you have never tried crochet before. I didn’t have a Size 35+ knitting needle, so just tied 4 chopsticks together with a hair tie (at the top part). Step 1: Make a foundation chain of 24 – This should be long enough to make a complete circle around your wrist. Step 2: Add a row of single crochet stitch to the chain. Step 3: After the row of single crochet, start your broomstick lace stitch. Step 4: After you complete one round of broomstick lace stitch, add another round of single crochet

you knew i was going to make one. they are all over pinterest....(i still am not signed up for pinterest because i don't have time for one more thing but browsing is fun!) so we made one. i took a box of 64 crayons and took out the blacks and browns.i used another small box and doubled up on the good colors i liked and hot glued them to the top of our canvas. then we turned our blow dryer to hot on high. not long after you set the hair dryer by the crayons they get shiny and then the wax starts to melt! and it dries really quickly too. seriously. what could be happier than this?? GREAT project. loved it today is the first FULL day with ALL my kids in ALL day school.yeah...i am smiling as i type that. it's good. it's quiet. i am rockin' it. removing wallpaper.....making code for craft weekend stuff.....doing my hair....going to lunch..... it's all good. hooray for school!

I love buying new clothes, but sometimes I love making them even more! I started college as a fashion design major, so I have always been a little crafty when it comes to recycling old T-shirts. DIY Workout ShirtMakes 1 sexy little tank Ingredients: 1 old T-shirt 1 pair of scissors 20 minutes 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Throw it on with some cute yogis, grab your water, and hit the gym!

How to Make Leaf Skeletons | The Idea Room I wanted to share with you a project from one of my readers who shares with us how to make leaf skeletons. I LOVE this! I have several leafs in various forms displayed in my home and knew I needed to make some of her leaf skeletons to add to my decor. I love how a pattern of leaves can enhance the beauty in your home. So I asked Heather if she would mind sharing her project with you. I have spent hours and tried various ways of making these. You need washing soda, not baking soda! Gather your leaves. Washing soda is a strong base so you may want to wear gloves when handling the leaves. You will add 3/4 cup of washing soda and 4 cups of water to your pot of leaves. Keep going, you will need to add more water so your pan doesn’t dry out. When 1.75 hours are up fill a glass baking dish with cool water. I carefully removed them and rinsed with water and added clean water to the pan. If you’re still with me, this is what I ended up with… I have a maple leaf which turned out not so well.

T-Shirt Bracelets | Family Chic SATURDAY, JUNE 4, 2011 | Comments: 45 Brightly colored t-shirts that are too small for my daughters now, have found new life as bracelets. For this project you will need some old t-shirts and a bunch of bangle bracelets. Cut t-shirt in 1/2" to 1" wide strips. Loosely tie one end of the t-shirt strip to the bangle and start wrapping fabric around bracelet – the tighter the better. Wrap fabric all the way around until you meet the first knot – untie the knot and tie both ends together to close. I found this technique worked well for us – but you could also use a glue gun to secure ends. We made a ton of these bracelets this morning – my daughters really enjoyed it.

DIY String Art Hi guys! Dina here from Honey & Fitz back with another tutorial. This time I’m showing you how to make some string art for your little one’s room! Rather than deal with hammers and cutting wood, I decided to do this project using cork tiles. Not only are they easy to find and inexpensive, they’re also very light weight so you don’t have to worry about them falling off the wall and hurting anyone. Here are the supplies you’ll need: Cork tiles // Linoleum Nails // 3M Hanging Strips // Contact Cement Stack the cork tiles on top of each other and use your contact cement to glue them together. I really wanted the look of a white background for my string art so I decided to paint the cork. Once the paint has dried, flip your cork tile over and apply your hanging strips. Create your template using whatever font you like. When you’ve traced the entire template, carefully remove the paper. Tie your string in a double knot onto your first nail now, and start weaving in a back and forth fashion.
