Duct Tape Flower
What up duct tape? Did you miss us?! For today’s bit of DIY accessory magic, we’ve figured out how to turn 3M’s Scotch Color & Patterns Duct Tape into gloriously neon rosettes. A fold here, a twist there, repeat a few times, and you’ve got a charming rosette to turn into a ring, pin, pair of earrings, or a little hair bling. Materials: - duct tape - scissors - ruler - accessories: earring backs, barrettes, comb clip, pin We used an array of neon duct tape as well as a fun snakeskin pattern as an accent for the hair accessory. We’ll start by showing you the step by step for our turquoise rosette ring. Repeat until you’ve folded all 20 pieces. Twist the first one into itself so it looks like the photo above. Cut off the bottom of the rosette so that you have a flat surface to attach your ring. Don’t worry about being gentle – duct tape is ridiculously durable! To make a ring, simply fold a piece of duct tape over itself lengthwise, roll into a ring and tape.

Paper Roses You know how it goes, a friend calls you and invites you to dinner at the last minute. OMG! What gift can you take?! You scrabble around the cupboards trying to find a box of chocolates or a bottle of wine but find that most of the chocolates have been eaten and the wine has gone. I thought this was a wonderful idea. Friendship Bracelets Macraméd friendship bracelets were all the rage when I was growing up in the eighties. All the girls at my school would obsessively make them for one another in a dizzying variety of colors, widths, and patterns. It's amazing, thinking back, that such young girls could make such beautifully intricate accessories.

DIY Tiered Ombre Necklace We were so inspired by the combination of chain and brightly-colored spandex from Tuesday's chunky necklace hack that we created another little something. Again, all you need is chain, spandex, and needle nose pliers to make your tiered ombre necklace dreams come true. Materials: - chain - wire cutters - needle nose pliers - spandex strips - gold jewelry loops - scissors - tape You'll be cutting 6 different lengths of chain for this so make sure you've got a good set of wire cutters. Cut the first length of chain to size. This will be the piece that goes around your whole neck so it should be around 24 inches.

How To Make Cozy Winter Cuffs Remember that rustic looking mason jar wreath from a few weeks ago? While we were making it we thought, I kind of want to wear this.

Wire heart crown This week we celebrated the Queen’s birthday. Which I should point out is no where near the Queen’s actual birthday, but we get a public holiday so I’m not complaining! And despite the fact that I spent most of the day eating and relaxing and not thinking about the royal family at all, somewhere along the line I was inspired to create a project with a bit of a regal twist. It turned out to be easier than I expected given that I almost never work with jewellery wire.

DIY Fabric Button Earrings Dritz button kit (you can find this at any craft store or online) I about died when I realized how easy it was to create personalized earrings out of buttons. (If you haven’t noticed yet, I tend to swoon over any normal product that can be transformed into something more interesting.) I made these button earrings as thank you gifts for a few of the wonderful women who planned my bridal shower a couple of months ago. The best part was that it only cost me about $15!
