Calico skies: DIY I love just about anything with fringe or tassels, it's just such a fun texture, and it shakes when you move! I've been seeing different versions of this idea online, so I decided to give it a try myself. Here's how I made my fringe necklace. Here's what you'll need: Fringe, you can buy it by the yard in different colors and lengths. All this only cost me 14 bucks! You want to have three strips of fringe that are three different lengths. At first I tried pinning the three strips of fringe together, but this material is just so tricky to deal with, and it unravels VERY easily. Use small beads of glue to attach the three strips at the top seam. After the glue has dried, use a running stitch to sew the fringe together, I did two passes just to be secure. Hopefully your stitches come out tidier than mine. Sew a two inch strip of the velvet ribbon to cover and finish off the two ends of the fringe. Measure how long you want your necklace to be. Hope you had a lovely weekend!

ID 1543276 join me lets change families one by one 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. Jump on over here for the tutorial. NECKLACE: I used shades of pale blue and turquoise embroidery thread, and wove through one side of the chain to mimic this necklace. CHARM BRACELET: This bracelet was already armed with charms. DOUBLE BRAIDED BRACELET: For this bracelet, I removed the charm and just used the chain. Photos: Courtesy of Ashley Weeks Cart
