my dog Chanel DIY Fishtail Hat Band We were instantly inspired by this gorgeous rainbow fishtail braid in Free People‘s September catalog and decided to recreate it, adding our own little twist: making the braid into a wearable hat accessory. Who said braids were limited to summer and hair? Cut about 40 strands of yarn about 3 feet long, knot at one end leaving a several inches of slack, and divide into two sections. Pull 4 strands of yard from the outside of the left section and add it to the right side. Do the same to the other side–pull 4 strands of yarn from the outside of the right section and add it to the left side. Transform your hat with your new fishtail braid by securing it with a piece of yarn, safety pin or elastic band! (all images by Honestly…WTF)

Origami roses The sight of these classy chocolate roses got me into a serious mood to make roses, paperwise that is. And I ended up making 3 different kinds cos’ they look so beautiful that I couldn’t wait to learn to make them all! 1. Kawasaki rose I first tried the Kawasaki rose, named after its creator Toshikazu Kawasaki, by following this demo and cross referenced with another demo [part 2|3]. Notes: There were several steps I had no idea what to do, so after some struggling and hair-pulling, I finally figured out what was going on EXACTLY! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 2. I watched this demo to make the Bird base rose created by James Sakoda. 3. 3. Followed this demo to make this rose bud. Both centre creases must be well-creased mountain folds, so that the folding up of each quarter will be easier. The real beauty of all these three roses is they are not too complicated to make once every step is laid out clearly and every intended fold well-creased.

12 Days Of Wrapping: Pixel Weave Speaking of nerding out, today’s DIY wrapping project combines two of our favorite things: pixels and crafts. If you haven’t done a basic weave, trying it out around a gift box is the easiest way to start! We started out with a simple yarn wrapping weave, then used ribbon, rubber bands and embroidery floss, and finally construction paper for some pixelated goodness. Materials: - string for weaving (yarn, ribbon, embroidery floss and rubber bands) - construction paper - scissors - wrapped presents or gift boxes For the yarn wrap, start with a piece of yarn or string and wrap it in stripes around your package. We did the same thing using construction paper, ribbon and a combo of rubber bands and embroidery floss with awesome results. Then, our crown jewel: the Pixelated Letter Weave! For a paper weave, cut out long strips and tape the first layer (the base layer) to the bottom of the package. Got any geeky wrapping tricks up your sleeve?

MAGAZINE ENVELOPES 18K+ Well I got this idea from our friend Nina. She was making these super cute envelopes out of scrapbook paper and I really wanted to make some! So I came home and made some! You will need: An old magazine, scissors, an envelope, a glue stick and a Sharpie. Tear out some magazine pages that you like. Carefully pull the envelope apart. Trace the envelope on a magazine page. Cut the envelope shape out. Turn the envelope over as well as the magazine cut-out. Unfold everything and separate the magazine cut-out from the envelope. Glue the bottom flap down to the two side flaps. And you've made your own envelope! The great thing about making these envelopes our of magazine pages is that the envelopes have a character all of their own.

Make Your Own Tree Swing Our first house in Springfield had a huge Oak tree in our wild, rambling backyard so I made Sebastian a tree swing once he was big enough to enjoy it. We were so sad to leave it behind when we moved, especially since our second house had absolutely no trees large enough to support even a family of squirrels much less a toddler. Our new place came with a good-sized apple tree right in the middle so as soon as the weather warmed up I decided it was time for another swing. 1. The kids and I love having a swing again and it adds a lot of charm to our backyard.

love notes {easy note cards} This weekend I taught a lesson at church that focused on how our attitude can affect the overall feeling in our home. I encouraged the girls to leave little love notes for their parents and siblings to show love and appreciation and make their home a happy place. I wanted to give them each three cards to use, so I had to come up with about 24 cards. Yikes! I decided on this quick and easy design that is also a great paper stash-buster. Little Love Notes {Tutorial} Supplies:*Patterned paper*Plain card stock for card base*Paper punches (I used a couple of different hearts, a butterfly, and a star)*Sewing machine and thread*Scissors 1. 2. 3. Whew! 4. But wait, here are a few more--they were so cute I hated to give them away!

Easy Painted Tumblers Thank you all so much for such amazing feedback and for helping this project circulate all over the internet! My cups have held up pretty well due to not being used too often (they are currently just holding bobby pins in my bathroom) but several readers said after a little wear and tear, the paint comes off. Other readers have found that using paint specifically for glass leads to a much longer life! Here's the thing about Anthropologie; everything is gorgeous. Let the knockoff begin! The internet taught me that I can use acrylic paint on glass as long as I seal it afterwards, so thats what we are going to do here. In true knockoff fashion, I did one rainbow confetti, and one each of red and blue. So there you have it. xo,

How To Turn Your T-Shirts Into Nautical Necklaces So we might be stretching the definition of nautical, but we couldn’t help but dream of summers spent on the water while making our sweet braided t-shirt necklaces. And you know, they’d be pretty perfect for sporting if you happen to be hangin’ with T-Pain and the boys of Lonely Island. If you’re thinking to yourself, “all my t-shirts are way too awesome to get rid of or re-purpose” (that Bush t-shirt from the mid 90s is still awesome), stock up on a few of our favorite new t-shirts out there and get creative with some of your old ones. Materials: - t-shirts (we used men’s M-XL) - electrical tape (green, yellow, blue) - 2 pairs of scissors (1 for the tape, 1 for the fabric) Lesson one: If you’re an aspiring crafter, the first thing to know is that you always need a pair of scissors dedicated to fabric. Next is braiding! Stay tuned for more creative ways to re-purpose old t-shirts and other odds and ends.

DIY Découpage Floral Bag When H&M asked us to DIY a boho-inspired item for their summer issue, découpage was the first thing that came to mind. Honestly, does it get any better than customizing a simple handbag with a brilliant floral print? However you create it, it’ll be satisfying to know that you’ve designed yourself a one of a kind bag! You’ll need:a handbagcotton fabric with a large floral patternpainter’s tapeMod Podgecraft paint2 small plastic dishes2 brushesscissors Start by taping off the edges and hardware of the handbag. Squeeze a dollop of colored craft paint into a small disposable container. Allow the first layer to dry completely. While the paint dries, carefully cut out a handful of flowers from the fabric. Arrange them onto the painted section of the bag. Remove the painter’s tape when the Mod Podge has dried clear and your floral handbag is complete! (all images by HonestlyWTF)

DIY Belted Boots It’s time for a reality check folks. Fall is here and, though SF is all about Indian summer, the flip flops will soon need to be exchanged for your favorite fall boots. If you’re like us, you’ve got one or two pairs of boots that gets you through the entirety of autumn. Though they’re still comfy now, they’re looking pretty grungy and could use a stylish update. Materials: - old tall or mid-height boots or cowboy boots - 3 belts - assorted trim - scissors - hot glue First thing to do, as always, is to get all of your materials together. Next thing is to fold those boots! Since we like our crazy looks on the symmetrical side, we cut each of our belts in half. Use hot glue to attach your first belt onto your boot. Do the same with the second. If you want even more flair, try adding lace trim or any kind of trim you’ve got in your craft closet. We recommend rocking these with a pair of blue skinnies and a basic top – the boots should be your statement piece for the day.
