...love Maegan : Fashion, DIY, Home, Lifestyle: Leather Lanyard Bracelet DIY ~ Los Angeles
If you went to Summer Camp as a kid, you’ll totally remember making lanyard keychains with that brightly colored plastic lace {I had tons of them!} …so I thought, why not do it with leather lace? And I did. And I love them! Pair them with stacks of other bangles and bracelets to add a little texture! {p.s. you can also make this into a necklace, headband or belt as well} So I thought I’d show you how …and if you like, you can buy one of mine because I’ve listed a few in my Etsy shop. Here’s What You’ll Need… * Leather lace * Chain * Clasp * Needle nose pliers/Scissors NOTE: There are tons of lanyard making videos on youtube if these instructions are a bit confusing! Steps… * Cut 2 strips of leather lace. * To begin, find the middle of one of your laces and wrap it twice around your finger. * To secure the end knot, leave your last box stitch loose then with each lace, loop around your nearest loop/under/up through the center …all the way around. Voila! Have Fun! Find all my DIYs here!

Make Photo Necklaces, Earrings, Magnets and More Using Shrinkable Plastic Seems like everything keeps getting smaller these days: computers, dogs, headphones… And now even photographs are joining in the smallness, thanks to the magic of biaxially oriented thermoplastic polystyrene (that’s Shrinky Dinks to you). You can print photos on plastic using your inkjet printer, and shrink them down small enough to make into necklaces, fridge magnets, earrings, or practically anything you can think of. See?

ball neclace If you were to map out my typical shopping track record, it might go a little something like this: I see it. I like it. I buy it.

You can imagine our excitement when we first discovered Philip Crangi’s Giles & Brother Hex Collection. Honestly, nuts braided into jewelry is WTF genius! With a few items that we always seem to have lying around, we tackled the technique and made our own spine-like braided hex nut wrap bracelet.

V and Co how to: jersey knit bracelet i don't know what it is about this time of year that makes me just want to have my bare feet in the sand, be watching the sun setting into the ocean, and breathing in the warm salty air of the beach...as i get older, more and more i find myself missing that place i used to go to almost every.single.day. as a teen. (my skin doesn't miss it. as a matter of fact, i now wish i listened more and DID put SPF on my face...hindsight is 20/20). my mom calls me from her walk on the beach almost every morning...*sigh*yeah, i get a little homesick around this time of the year. heck on my pinterest my "dreaming of summer" has the most pictures in it. ah yes. i miss my ocean. case in point. this bracelet, brought a flood of memories, not because i used to have one like it but because i can totally see me wearing it by the beach, not caring that it's gotten salty and wet, because i can totally make another one in like less than 5 minutes flat when i get home. *sigh* okay...
