Cadre porte-bijoux shabby-chic - Pièce par pièce Cadre porte-bijoux shabby-chic Voici une manière élégante et pratique de ranger ses bijoux. Une création personnalisable et unique qui sera parfaite dans unepièce à la décoration romantique. Pas à pas réalisé par Barbara du blog le 24 mai 2013 - photos : DR On peut aussi réaliser un cadre petit format seulement grillagé qui servira uniquement aux petits bijoux. Inutile de mettre du tissu si vous n’avez pas les oreilles percées. On pourra peindre le cadre dans les couleurs de la pièce pour une parfaite harmonie. Récupérer un vieux cadre et le peindre si nécessaire. Clouer le tasseau de bois à l’arrière, environ au ¾ au plus haut du cadre. Agrafer le grillage sur la partie haute à l’arrière du cadre. Fixer les patères (achetées dans le commerce) sur le tasseau à l’aide de la visseuse. Découper une bande de tissus de la largeur du cadre. Faire passer la bande de tissu dans le grillage en tissant dessus/dessous d’un bout à l’autre.

Celine Inspired Knot Bracelet I have been lusting over the Celine Knot bracelet for months and have been extremely unlucky in finding it. I figured it was time to get over it by making something similar while hunting down other autumn necessities. Given my current color obsession I decided to get adventurous and not just go for a metallic version. Inspiration My DIY version You will need: - polymer clay - a jar or thick glass bottle - an oven (:p) - acrylic colors or spray paint (optional) The jar or glass bottle will determine the size of the bracelet so pick one with a diameter close to that of your wrist. Turn on your oven adjusting the temperature according to your clay's instructions. Roll your clay into a tube approx. 1 inch longer than the diameter of your wrist. Softly pull the two ends so that you tighten the knot. Get your jar and wrap the bracelet(s) around it. Carefully remove the jar from the oven and let the bracelets cool. Once they have cooled you can use acrylics or spray paint to color them. xoxo

How To Tuesday: My Sweet Josephine. 28Jun/11 After seeing Kristin's friendship bracelet giveaway on Idle Wife, I've hauled out my old bracelet books and thread from when I was a kid. Naturally I've been furiously making all sorts of bracelets. After making six friendship bracelets in two days I decided I needed a new pattern. Following an extensive google session I found these beautiful recycled t-shirt bracelets and vowed to make them my own. And now you can too! All you need is... 2 pieces of fabric about 18 x 6 inches Scissors Pliers 2 ribbon clamps (found at Michaels) 2 jump rings 1 clasp Cut 2 pieces of fabric from your t-shirt about 18 x 6 inches. Make a loop with the first scrap and lay it over top of the second. Take that end and alternate weaving it under and over the remaining fabric lengths. Pair up the ends of fabric and wrap it snugly around your wrist. And there you have it!

DIY: Wearable words When I was looking around for tutorials on making paper beads, I found some really striking "book beads" and accessories, now collected in this post. I understand (after all the browsing) that you can make really durable "beads" easily ... very little time, skill or money required. Woohoo! Who doesn't need more jewelery? First, this wonderful necklace. Inexpensive, easy scrap-paper earrings? Need a little more inspiration? Leather bracelet tutorial by, Anleitung für ein Lederarmband von It is really fall now over here in northern Germany. The last days have been very stormy and the beautiful leaves are dancing in the wind. Winter is near and I was longing to make a leather bracelet with a bit more substance - a bit more chunky with a thicker leather. Can't wait to wear it with my favorite cozy wool knits! Lucky me there is a leather shop in our small town near by. It's been there for over 25 years and i think, that is amazing with shops popping up and closing down every few monts these days. They custom make leather goods - mostly pants I guess and obviously do a great job. So from time to time I go visit and the lady let's me sniff thru their scrap bins. Not for free though - it is business! Sometimes she charges very little for my finds sometimes I have to swallow before taking out my wallet. We NEVER discuss the prices - it seems "not right" to me to do so - It would feel rude. I'm not sure if she is aware of sometimes charging me much and sometimes charging little. Happy Day,
