Sailor's Knot Bracelets :: Etsy Blog With fall days of colored leaves, chunky sweaters and spiced cider in our future, it’s just about time to pack up the beach gear until next year. Luckily, it doesn’t have to be summer to rock these stylish (and easy to make) nautical bracelets. I’m Simone of Groundsel, and a member of Etsy New York Street Team team. So, read on, and get knotty… Supplies you’ll need: 3.5 yards of twine14 ounce can for a smaller bracelet or a 20 ounce can for a larger bracelet. Directions: Step 1: Wrap one end of the twine around the can to shape an X. Step 2: Wrap the long end of the twine around the can again and bring it up to the middle of the X. Step 3: Next, move the upper left leg of the X over the right leg of the X to create an oval shape. Step 4: Pull the long end of the twine through the oval shaped opening you just set up. Step 5: Turn the can a bit and you will see that the oval shape has created another X shape. Step 6: Repeat steps 3 through 5 until you get to the beginning of your project.

Turn an Empty Corner into a Storage-Packed Corner Desk GAGA BRA!! :) sooo, Ive become a little inspired by lady gaga, and all of her AMAZING clothes just make me want to create! This is a bra I saw in her Just Dance video, and I fell in love with it! so here is its, the GAGA BRA! or as my friends have named it: disco boobs! Edit:Just to answer a few questions, here are some details on how it was made/material costs- I got the bra on sale for $10 - I bought 2 disco balls from the dollar store for $2 (but only used one.. im a 36 C, so anyone bigger then that would need more because i used the wholeeee thing.) - I used super glue to attach them to the bra, and I used 4 tubes, for $4 The total cost was $16 dollars! some in the making shots with a shirt Im going to get a better shirt to wear with it, and I will post the action shots then, I just got so excited to share this! EDIT, here it is in action: Xo* ps here is the original gaga version:

Upcycled sweater boots (w/mini tutorial!) What do you get when you mix a cheap pair of flats, an old sweater, and lots of hot glue? Sweater boots!! Yay! I started with this: chopped off the sleeves, turned it inside out, and formed it to my foot. Hot glued it to a shoe, like so... flipped it right side out, and cut the bottom off the sweater to make a cuff.. Embroidered it.. Sewed it into a cuff that would flip out over the boot.. And now you have...Sweater boots!! Of course, they're not really meant for cold weather wear, but they'd be perfect in the fall or tromping around the house I'm really quite proud of these.
