Earlier this month I shared a chain version of my DIY convertible bracelet choker. This week, I wanted to share the glass bead version that I love to wear as a bracelet. But it can be worn as a choker necklace or a wrap bracelet, it’s up to you!
Ever since I made my DIY version of the Bina Brianca convertible travel wrap I’ve been a little obsessed with making other convertible pieces like the DIY convertible blanket wrap. This time I made a few different versions of a DIY convertible bracelet choker; wear it as a choker necklace or a wrap bracelet! Be on the lookout for a second version I’ll be sharing later this month. Sign up for email updates so you don’t miss it!
As a 90’s baby, I’m honestly really happy that there are so many trends of that decade coming back and staying strong. I wasn’t as into fashion as I am now when I was a kid, so I’m excited to be able to actually rock the trends I grew up with. Since this is probably a passing fad, I wanted to make my own DIY ribbon choker.
This trinket dish DIY is so incredibly simple with a great end result that you can’t mess up. Gift it as a trinket dish, soap dish or tea bag rest! Buying someone jewelry? Gift them with this DIY dish and say it’s a trinket dish. Know someone who loves fancy soaps? Give them this and tell them it’s a soap dish! Have a tea drinker in your life? Give them a tin of some deluxe tea, a new mug and this tea rest dish. I’m a big tea drinker and this is sort of a selfish DIY tutorial because I plan on keeping this (:P).
Move over glass slippers here comes an equally awesome glass necklace! I was at Jo-Ann buying some material for a different DIY project when I came across these awesome glass cube beads by Blue Moon. I bought them not knowing what I’d use them for. When I go home, I quickly realized that I loved them most when they were strung together. It’ll probably take you longer to gather the materials for this tutorial than it takes to make this DIY glass necklace!
This trendy piece of jewelry has been red hot since spring this year and it’s super easy to make. I’m not sure why anyone would want to buy these when you can salvage the materials from old jewelry and make them over into something fresh like this DIY wrap lariat!
I was browsing Free People’s sales during Memorial Day Weekend and came across this awesome belt. Being the crafty person I am, I thought I could make my own DIY layered chain belt because I had made a chain belt the other month and had all the materials for it already from my layered chain necklaces DIY.
Have you ever walked around a fabric store and grabbed all the fabric samples from the plastic sleeves just because? I definitely have! I fall in love with fabrics easily, but I usually have no real idea of what I would do with them if I buy the fabrics, so the alternative for me is to collect the fabric samples instead. I hold on to them in case I think of a project with that particular fabric type or patter, but often I do nothing with them and they sit gathering dust. I know, I know, it’s a big waste! And I’m an advocator of reducing, reusing and recycling, which makes me feel even guiltier about this weird collection of mine. So I’ve challenged myself to start using them for DIY projects. I’ve challenged myself awhile back to only use materials I have on hand at home before, making a leather bucket bag with scraps/samples last year. This week, I used a fabric sample to make over an old bracelet I randomly found when I moved out of the university dorms years ago.
I love simple DIY’s that are quick and easy but have high impact with the results. I found several variations of leather bird rings being sold on etsy when browsing through Pinterest and was inspired to try making my own version of a DIY leather bird ring during a fifteen minute work break. I had happened to have all the materials needed with me and was able to get it done in under five minutes flats!
