What do bobby pins, socks and stud earrings have in common? I lose them ALL THE TIME! So I created a DIY Wooden Stud Earring Holder for Martha Stewart to keep my earrings in one place. It’s a cute jewelry display and organizer all in one. Here’s hoping I never lose another pair of earrings again. For details on how to make your own, head over to Martha Stewart.
Spring style is all about bringing back color and there’s a new trend in town – paint splatter! As a craft blogger, my clothes are always spotted in paint or hot glue anyway so it was kinda fun embracing this trend. Not only is it pretty but it’s also totally DIY-able. On Brit + Co, I shared the tutorial to create DIY Paint Splattered Boyfriend Jeans for yourself. When in doubt, throw some paint on it! Check out the DIY project on Brit + Co.
During the colder months, it’s easy to wear just black or grey like it’s a uniform. It seems to happen every winter that I fall into a fashion rut! So I’m always looking for fun ways to inject more color into my closet and DIY Anthropologie Drop Earrings are just what I needed! On Brit + Co, I shared how to make a DIY copycat of an expensive pair of Anthro earrings. They’re pretty wild and colorful but since they’re small earrings, it’s totally wearable. Don’t they look like something out of Iris Apfel’s closet?! Head over to see the tutorial on Brit + Co now.
My first DIY of the year is here and it’s a good one! During the colder months, I’ve been living in some form of flannel shirt and yoga pants because staying warm is my #1 priority, naturally. So for a winter DIY, I wanted to experiment with dip-dye on a flannel shirt I already owned. First, because I have lots to spare and second, because it’s an easy way to refresh an old, comfy shirt. To see how the DIY dip dye flannel shirt turned out, head over to Brit + Co. Spoiler alert: it’s pretty cute and looks like it’s store-bought. The dip-dyeing process is pretty simple and not as messy as you’d think. If you want to give it a go, it’s up on Brit + Co now.
With the cooler weather upon us, it’s time to trade in our summer clothes for something more fall-appropriate. Sigh. It’s not easy to swap my favorite soft summer tee for a scratchy turtleneck. So to make the summer–fall–winter transition much easier, on Brit + Co I shared how you can turn your favorite summer crop top into a DIY cute peplum tee. Layer it up as it gets colder and you can wear your fave tee for the whole season. Yay! Check out the full tutorial and more on Brit + Co.
Aloha! Don’t you wish we were sipping piña coladas on an island right now?! Actually sipping piña coladas anywhere sounds good, I’m not picky. The bright florals of sunny Hawaii inspired these DIY Hawaiian floral hair pins I shared on Brit + Co. It’s the next best thing to making a floral crown which if you’ve ever tried it, is actually harder than it looks. Not these floral hair pins — they’re super easy and affordable and it’s a kid friendly craft too. A floral hair accessory you can wear all year round! Check it out on Brit + Co.
With summer coming up, we’re making lists of all the fun things we want to squeeze in and trips we want to take. Have you started thinking about your summer bucket list yet? We’ll probably skip music festivals this time around but that doesn’t mean we won’t be adventuring! If you’re hitting up a music festival or not, this DIY Boho Bucket Bag is the perfect casual bag to throw on and hit the road exploring! I shared how you can make your own on Brit + Co (and you won’t believe what I used for the fabric!). It’s kind of perfect for dragging around on the beach or picnicking in the park because you don’t have to worry about keeping it clean and perfect. This bag’s easy, breezy, beautiful! Head over to Brit + Co for the full project.
These past few weeks have been crazy with a capital C with craft projects all over the place! I’m trying to find a rhythm to posting on this blog consistently so if it seems wacky lately, just know that I suck at scheduling and I’m working on it. If you follow along on Instagram, you may have seen this DIY no sew water bottle tote I shared over on Brit + Co. It’s my first experiment with a no sew project — I skipped the sewing machine in favor of using hem tape and so far I’m loving the results. I don’t drink a lot of water normally so if you’re like me, a water bottle tote might motivate you to stay hydrated this summer. Check out the tutorial on Brit + Co now!
It’s no secret that I love online window shopping and my credit card loves it too! It’s hard for me to commit to buying something I can’t see in person — maybe I’m just traditional, who knows. But sometimes I’ll find something like a Ruche Embellished Sequin Skirt that’s so beautiful it’s hard to resist an impulse buy. So what’s a DIYer to do? Make a DIY hack of course! If you head to Brit + Co, I shared how you can make your own DIY Embellished Sequin Skirt. It’s just in time to update your closets for the spring season yay! The affordable DIY copycat is simple enough if you know how to sew a button on a shirt. I don’t normally make style DIYs except for this one but hopefully you like seeing them because they’re so fun to make. Expect a few more in the future! Head over to see the sparkly skirt tutorial on Brit + Co now.
Remember when we used to play dress-up as kids and it was the best thing ever? Now that I’m older, I’ve started playing it safe and sticking to the boring basics, fashion-wise. But fashion should be fun! So I made the ULTIMATE statement necklace inspired by legendary fashion icon, Iris Apfel. To add a little color to your closet this season, check out the DIY Iris Apfel inspired Statement Necklace over on Brit + Co now! It’s kinda nuts but goes perfectly with an LBD. If you haven’t heard of Iris Apfel, she’s a 93-year-old style queen with a huge collection of costume jewelry and a refreshing sense of humor about fashion. There’s a documentary about her, Iris on Netflix that I highly recommend! For the colorful DIY, head over to Brit + Co.
