I’m a really big fan of vintage jewelry. Most of the time I admit I would never wear it, but I really like the way it looks. The other day, I was at Michael’s (of course, it’s like my second home), and found these really cute key charms. They’re not really vintage keys, obviously, but they’re close enough in appearance. I wanted to make something with them, but the craft I planned on making this week didn’t work out like I’d hoped. Read the whole post
The June theme for this Craft Challenge was jewelry and I was having a hard time coming up with something to make. Jewelry is usually a pretty easy one for me because I make so much of it. Turns out, that was my problem. I’ve made a little bit of every kind of jewelry and I don’t want to repeat any of my tutorials. So, I tweeted for a fresh perspective. Read the whole post
I’ve had the materials to make this necklace for weeks now and was finally able to fit it into my DIY schedule. Yay!
It’s sooo easy to make and costs less than $5 (unless you want a really fancy chain.) It also took about 15 minutes to put together, so the next time you need a necklace when going out and you don’t like any of the ones you have, consider making this one.
I have so much glitter nail polish left over from my teenage years. I keep thinking, what am I going to do with all of this? Slowly, but surely, I am figuring it out! This week for my Make Something Mondays, I am using my glitter nail polish to make a DIY glitter pendant necklace. It is quick and easy and I think you will like it.
One of my coworkers told me about this event called Zero Landfill a while back. Click on the name and check out the site. This event is AWESOME! This group arranges for business in the creative industries to drop off their “scraps” in one location on a specific date. Otherwise, these scraps would go into the garbage and get thrown into a landfill. The group arranges the scraps in a building and advertise for anyone to come and look through them and take whatever they think they could use. Read the whole post
Another fun, yet cheap, idea! Go get some washers from a hardware store (about 3 cents), some scrapbook paper and string or wire and make yourself a cute necklace pendant. Doesn’t take long and costs very little.
Things You Will Need:
Measure and cut some of your scrapbook paper to match the size of the washer you have chosen. You will need some for the front and back. Read the whole post
