Woven Bracelet & Necklace
I’ve been itching to make myself some jewelry inspired by Aurélie Bidermann’s “Do Brasil” line. Since I don’t have 300 Euros lying around, this looked like a design I could recreate on my own. I was primed to put together a DIY Tutorial for you all when I discovered that Honestly WTF had already done the honors. I picked up the gold necklace and the two bracelet chains from an antique shop for $5 a piece, and had the embroidery thread on hand. I only needed scissors and two bobby pins to see this project through.
How to Make a Toothbrush Bracelet
It seems that I'm into things made of household items-- from fork bracelets to pushpin shoes, there's a trend there. ;) What you need to make a toothbrush bracelet: ♥Toothbrush ♥Pliers ♥Pot and stove The first thing you need to do is put the toothbrush in boiling water. I recommend the cheapest toothbrush you can find, whether that's at the Dollar Store or wherever-- just as long as it is the simple kind. I tried this with a Snoopy toothbrush for kids and it did not work. You need the clear plastic kind.

Lovely Wire Knot Ring Tutorial
You can make this lovely ring (or a version of this design) yourself, using just some basic tools, wire and a lip balm! Yes, in this tutorial I am going to demonstrate that just basic beginner tools and a wire from Michael’s can go a long way! Wouldn’t this ring make a great present?? For the purpose of this tutorial I am going to be using the very basic, cheap tools that are available almost everywhere. Instead of a ring mandrel you can just use a tube of a lip balm, like I did. I chose to make my ring from a simple gold-plated wire (20 gauge) but you could also use 18-gauge wire, twisted wire (wouldn’t that be nice?)

It hardly seems fair to call this one a “tutorial”, because it’s SO easy, and fairly self-explanatory. But now that spring is (nearly) here, I have been itching to add some color to my wardrobe. And because shopping isn’t easy when you feel gigantic, I settle for adding some color to my accessories instead.
