DIY Chanel Inspired Pearl Bracelet Today we’re going to knock out a some gorgeous DIY Chanel for a fraction of the price! Apparently I have expensive taste. Always have and probably always will. You know how when you’re flipping through your newest fashion mag and you see this thing, be it a purse, belt, pair of earrings, whatever that are to die for and rather than a price, there is an 800 number with “price upon request”. That’s what happened when I saw inside of my Marie Claire. I was quickly flipping through the pages to get an idea of what was going down this issue and I saw this bracelet in the upper left hand corner of my book that made me stop. Check out that gorgeously blinged out closure! I was out buying glass pearls the very next day. What you’ll need to knock off your own: Take your first bead and string it onto a head pin. Take the wire and wrap it around some rounded jewelry pliers to form a loop. Just to make things easier on myself, I went ahead and did up all of my beads like this before I moved on.

Fusionknots.com How to make 5 bracelets in 10 minutes Today I would like to show you 5 different techniques to make some nice and easy bracelets. I wanted new bracelets and a lot of them so I made these very quickly. The best thing about these bracelets is that if you're crafty you'll make them for free because they can be made with what you have in your stash:left-over pieces from other DIY projects, little pieces of ropes, some yarn and so on. Let's start! Yarn bracelet : I made a tiny loop with the rope, blocked with thread and needle and then I just wrapped the colored yarn around. Crystal bracelet : I made a loop with the rope and blocked it with thread and needle then I put the crystal chain over the rope and I wrapped the yarn around both. Ball chain bracelet: I made a loop with the rope and blocked it with thread and needle then I put the ball chain over the rope and I wrapped the yarn around both. Braided bracelet : I cut several pieces of colored yarn; I knotted them together - I divided them in three parts then I braided it.

googly eye earrings The first I myself saw of it was from Amanda the Great, who started sticking them amusingly onto Magic the Gathering playing cards for her Tumblr, Magic Cards With Googly Eyes. Shortly after that, while cruising the internet for craft ideas and such, I encountered several blogs and online groups devoted to eyebombing. Then I saw Anne Wheaton and Bonnie Burton tweeting their own eyebombing adventures, with the now-widespread hashtag #vandaleyes. And it’s progressed from there. I’ve had a bag of googly eyes in my craft supplies stash for ages, because I have just about anything and everything in my craft supply stash. The point here is that googly eyes are fun. This tutorial is based on the exact same process as my tutorial for round paper earrings. What you’ll need materials: googly eyes! tools: a circle cutter OR small circle punch OR a traceable circular item (or some other shape. Putting it all together 1) Start with your paper and your varnish. 5) Let the glue dry completely.

Anthro Knock Off Vintage Lace Bracelet The prettiness from Monday and yesterday continues today with a little anthro-inspired bracelet tutorial. In a word, lovely. The lace-and-pearls embroidered on vintage lace is just loveliness. The idea came from Anthropologie (shocker, right?). For Jord’s birthday, I was wanting to give her a present that was lightweight (read- easily packed), and just pretty. You’ll need--two lengths of 6″x2″ ribbon or lace for the base and the backing (doesn’t have to be vintage, it gets covered)-enough vintage lace/trim to cover the your ‘base’ (see above)-extra lace/trim to tie-embroidery thread-invisible thread-beads, pearls, etc. for embellishing 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.
