I’ve been really feeling the neon accents because it gives your wardrobe a touch of color and is chic and clean in a modernists sort of way. Anyway here is the super easy DIY. Jimmy Choo makes pumps and strappy sandals in neon, neon green, neon pink, neon orange, and neon blue. The cool part about this DIY is that you can use either pumps you have lying around or strappy sandals look equally cool as well. You will Need: a pair of pumps or strappy heelswhite spray paintNeon spray paint (in whatever shade you want)newspapertape ( I used scotch tape but white tape is easier to use I think) 1) use the tape to cover up areas that you don’t want spray painted such as the sole or the opposite sides of straps. It should look like this when you are done: 2) take a sheet of newspaper and scrunch it into a ball, this covers the inside of the sole on pumps. 4) Now you are ready for the neon.

Dishfunctional Designs DIY Braided Bead Bracelet - Honestly WTF - StumbleUpon 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. So after playing with some materials that were already on hand, we’ve created a tutorial for a braided bead bracelet, which is a not so distant cousin of the hex nut and wrap bracelet. You’ll need: Cut the waxed linen cord into a 26″ and 19″ piece. Tie a knot about half an inch down from the loops. Start braiding the strands. Push the bead against the base of the braid, and cross the left strand over the middle. Keep a finger at the base of the braid, holding the beads in their place and keeping the braid tight. Finish the bracelet with another inch of braided cord, measuring it against the wrist. Thread on a two hole button – two strands through one hole and one strand through another. Trim the end. Your bracelet is finished! (all images by HonestlyWTF)

Oh the lovely things Kids in the Kitchen: Slime! September is in full swing and we thought we’d celebrate by doing Back-to-School week! My oldest kiddo just started pre-school and Kate is now the mother to an official kindergartner. This week we’re going to have *five* posts. Do you guys remember this?? I was so obsessed with that stuff and I totally remember the commercials. If you’ve ventured into science fun like this before then you already know that 97% of home projects require the same 2 ingredients. Start by dissolving a teaspoon of Borax in one cup of water and set it aside. Now pour the Elmer’s glue in a separate bowl. Add some water to that glue and then stir in some food coloring. Once that’s all stirred up, just pour your Borax mix into the bowl. See? It will be wet and soft at first but you just have to keep kneading it. I have to say I actually prefer the white glue. Older kids can help measure and stir and younger ones can stand and protest that they don’t get to. This is their favorite part. Homemade Slime aka GAK
