This month, I’ve slowed down on the DIY projects because life has been a little hectic and I had to put some things on the back-burner. I’m a self-professed hoarder and had come across some necklaces that I don’t wear anymore but couldn’t bear to throw them away. I thought it’d be fun to remake some of them into something I would wear. Layered necklaces have been all the rage the last few seasons and can be easily done yourself with a few simple items.
Since I’ve come back from my trip abroad, I’ve focused on making simple DIY’s that are fast and easy to make. I’m trying to use the materials I have on hand, instead of going out to buy new things every time. I came across Mollie Make’s embroidery floss necklace tutorial and was inspired to make a bracelet version.
It’s been so long since I’ve made something for this blog. I’m so happy to be able to ease into it with this super simple earring DIY! I had picked up a pair of simple oval hoop earrings from Primark (shopping here was part of the reason I went over budget on my trip) while I was abroad a few months ago for a great price. I wanted to add something to them to make it more personalized and unique. It’s incredibly easy to change up any pair of earrings you may have with a few simple tools and materials.
Body chains became popular over the last few years because of the many music festivals in the spring and summer. I’ve never had the urge to buy one because they were so expensive and I kept thinking I could make my own, but never did. But this year I decided was the year I’d actually make one.
I originally made this DIY body chain intending to pack it for my trip to Coachella this year, but plans fell through and now I will no longer be going, but I’m sure I’ll have other opportunities to wear it soon enough. I think it’s fairly easy to wear it casually, not just decked out for music festivals.
I was inspired by this gorgeous necklace that was sold out on Anthropologie. But I was able to find stones that had the right shape at Jo-Ann to make a similar necklace.
Ear cuffs are all the rage right now. I was inspired by Knobbly’s beautifully simplistic metal jewelry, particularly the Sterling Silver Ear Cuff. Minimalist Ear Bar. Hammered Lines. It’s on my wishlist of things I want to buy, but I’m trying to save up for a big trip later this year, so I thought I would try making my own ear cuffs.
The end of December is getting closer and closer, that means you’ve either finished gift shopping for all your loved ones or you’re scrambling around like a chicken with it’s head cut off getting things together. This week I wanted to share a few last minute gift ideas that are extremely easy and fast to make. Today’s DIY is a rock necklace that can be made in less than ten minutes once you’ve gotten the hang of wire twisting.
This month I’ve decided to start tackling some major eyesores around the house. First thing I needed to fix was my jewelry organization and nightstand. Ever since the statement necklace trend happened I’ve been at a loss at how to organize them. I’ve been storing them in a tray in my nightstand and I tend not to wear most of it because it’s not in front of my face. I have the bad habit of wearing the things that I readily see and forget about the stuff hidden away in drawers or underneath other jewelry. I also have too much stuff on my nightstand and needed a good de-cluttering session.
