DIY// bobby pin earrings So along with this DIY, I'm also trying out a new photo editing site called PicMonkey. So that's why all my pictures have such lovely effects. Let me know what you think! These are my bobby pin earrings that I talked about doing in this post. Ingredients: - Craft wire - Earring hooks - Bobby pins - Nail polish Start by painting your pins. If you bought your pins new, keep them on the little cardboard piece that they came on. Simply tape off the areas you want to paint, and paint whatever pattern you like. Let your paint dry and carefully feel back the tape. Next, prepare your wire. Repeat these steps for the second earring. Totally cool, right? I hope you enjoyed this DIY!

They are beautiful and I love the trend so I thought I would try making my own. These turned out to be really easy to make and require just a few simple supplies. This necklace would make a lovely Mother's day gift, which just happens to be coming up this weekend! What you'll need: - Jewelry wire (I prefer using a 24 gage because it is easier to manipulate but the 20 gage can work well too with the help of some round nose pliers) - pearls or glass beads - necklace chain - jump ring and a clasp Select the beads you want, string them onto your wire and arrange them as you'd like. then simply wrap the wire around the beads wrap some wire in the space between each bead (I like the look of three loops but you could just do one or two if you prefer) this is what the back looked like. now attach a jump ring and a clasp to the end of a necklace chain and this is what you end up with :) I love how each one is so different

Using some candy-colored embroidery floss and your familiarity with the chevron friendship bracelet, you’ll be able to whip up one of these tokens of love in a heartbeat. You’ll need:2 colors of embroidery flossscissorstape or clipboard Creating a heart pattern involves just a simple modification to the chevron patterned friendship bracelet. Start by cutting 4 strands of each color, at about 24 inches each, for a total of 8 strands. Separate the threads into 2 sets, 2 of each color on each side. Start on the left side with the outermost strand (shown here in red) and make a forward knot by creating a 4-shape over the 2nd strand (shown here in blue), loop it under and back through the opening. Pull up and to the right to tighten. Continue knotting towards the left until the outermost strand reaches the middle. Voila!
