DIY Floral Sunglasses

DIY Floral Sunglasses
We always claim to see the world through rose colored glasses . . . but how about rose trimmed glasses? In honor of the widespread floral trend and our love of Dolce & Gabbana‘s Baroque-inspired fall collection, we’re DIYing a pair of outrageously fabulous sunglasses using the same charming little ceramic roses from a recent tutorial. These will surely be a pair of shades you won’t go unnoticed in this summer! You’ll need:a pair of sunglassesa variety of ceramic roses and flowersdisposable container or popsicle sticka handful of toothpicksE6000 Start by squeezing a small amount of E6000 into a disposable container or onto a wooden popsicle stick. Press the flower firmly onto the outer corner of the sunglasses. Add a few small flowers down the right side of the glasses. Repeat on the other side and allow to dry for a couple of hours. Your floral shades are ready to wear! (top image via, rest of images by HonestlyWTF) Related:  Cosas Que Quiero <3!

TetraBox Light by Ed Chew Liquid to Light Designer Ed Chew takes a green step in the right direction with the TetraBox lamp, a light object made from discarded drink packets that would have otherwise ended up in landfills already packed to the brim. The design is achieved by unfolding the packets and refolding them into hexagonal and pentagonal sections that are then pieced together to form a geodesic sphere or any other desired shape. Designer: Ed Chew oven bake clay feathers Last year I shared how to make a canvas feather necklace and now that I have my own lovely rubber stamps made from my feather drawings, I decided to create another version of a this necklace using my stamps- this time with oven bake clay. There are all kinds of different ways to use rubber stamps but I think one of my favorites is with clay. I rolled out white oven bake clay and then pressed the stamp into the clay to make an imprint. Using acylic paint, I painted over the top of the clay feather. While the paint was still wet, I wiped a damp paper towel over the surface to remove the paint, leaving pigment in the grooves of the feather. I added a few little details with paint. Last, I added a jump ring and chain. For more information or to purchase my pretty little feathers stamp collection visit my shop HERE

DIY Sequin Heart Hairclip | Whimseybox Kelly LanzaStudio DIY It’s time to get you prepped and ready for Valentine’s Day! And the only way to do that? Supplies: Felt Sequin Trim Strong Fabric-Safe Glue (I used E-6000, my fave!) Cut out three pieces of felt: One heart, one 12″ by 2.5″ rectangle and one 4″ by 1″ rectangle. Spread a bit of glue on the point of your heart and attach the end of your sequin trim. Begin to weave the sequin trim back and forth in lines, adding glue line by line as you go. Keep going until you have covered the entire heart. You’re likely to have a few spots where you can see the felt popping through around the edges. Now you have a perfect sequin heart! Pick up your larger felt rectangle and make it a into a loop by hot gluing the short ends together. Pinch the bow in the center and wrap your smaller rectangle piece around it. Hot glue your clip to the back of the finished bow. Finally, glue your sequin heart to the center of the bow. Wishing everyone a little bit of love and sparkle this Valentine’s Day!

5 Ways to Turn Zippers into Awesome Arm Candy UPDATE: By popular demand, Zipper Bracelet Kits ($15) and readymade Zipper Bracelets ($20) are now available in the Brit + Co. shop! You know we love turning unconventional materials into wearable accessories. Today, we’re tackling zippers! We figured out 5 simple, beautiful ways to create bracelets, cuffs, and bangles out of metal, plastic, and repurposed zippers. Materials: - zippers - E-6000 quick hold contact adhesive - velcro or snap buttons - leather crimps + clasps - Tools: needle nose pliers, sharp scissors First thing to do is get your zippers! 1. These bangles are sweet, and have a definite friendship bracelet vibe. Use colored zippers for these, in whatever colors you like. Attach cord ends so that you can add a clasp and loop. 2. For this one, you’ll want a zipper with some contrast. We chose a black zipper with gold teeth. 3. This one is silly simple! Get a zipper with a more interesting material like denim. 4. 5. Last, the wrap bracelet! And that’s a wrap (hehe!).

Totally Tubular Statement Necklaces On one of our last trips to New York, we stumbled upon these insanely beautiful necklaces by Pepper Cotton. Using a handcrafted netting material and gorgeous crystals, they’ve created otherworldly bits of wearable goodness. But, their pieces start at $125 and only go up. With help from tubing, clasps, and sprinkles (yes, sprinkles), we created a whole bunch of tubular necklaces, inspired by the folks at Pepper Cotton. Materials:- 1/4 inch plastic tubing – cord ends – clasps + loops – filling! For the tubing, any local hardware store or Home Depot should have tubing for you to use. To close off one end of tubing, attach your cord end using glue. Now it’s time to fill! Close off the end of your necklace with another cord end. A lovely look even for a regular Thursday at the office. Repeat with sprinkles (can you say Candy Necklace 2.0?) And there you have it! Plus they make great headbands too!

Packing Tape Image Transfers | Lil Blue Boo I love image transfers. It’s something I’m always using in my journals but there are so many other fun uses for them. All you need to make a transfer is a photocopy of an image or words and packing tape. You can also use printouts from a laser printer or magazine pages. Inkjets will not work because they are not heat based toner. So take some photos to the copy machine or tear some pages out of your favorite magazine to get started. First, take a strip of packing tape and place it over the images you want to transfer: Then use the back of your scissors or the side of your fingernail to make sure the tape is adhered firmly: Next, dip the tape and paper into a bowl of water to wet the back: Using your fingers, start to rub off the paper from the back of the tape: Like magic….your image is left behind on the tape! I like to use the transfers to wrap special letters before I mail them. It’s like having custom tape: Another idea is to take a small canvas and use the images for artwork: P.S.
