I wish I could credit the tumblr post that i got this from, but I guess I can rest assured that all of you craft fanatics have seen it before. It got a lot more intense in color after a while, but I might tape it and spray it again if it isn’t what I’d like after its dry. I want an intense orange, I just want to keep the spottiness. Oh well, we’ll see.
I’m going to make this one a skirt ;D
This was my hand at ombre-ing. I don’t think it turned out too bad :D I was wanting this to be a skirt, but the logo shows through too much. So I’m thinking a loop scarf? :)
And I LOVE the way this one turned out. I’m definitely making this one a skirt.
I’ll make update posts when I make these wearable items, they’re up to dry for now :)
And i couldn’t get my pictures to rotate, so sorry about that!
This is yet another one of those “hot-glue-this-to-this” projects, but we can’t complain: they’re practically fail proof!
All you need is your selected shells, earring backs, and a hot glue gun.
I used these shell beads (if you could drop by my ask and let me know their name I would be most appreciative) which I got off of some shoes a long long time ago. At first I attempted to use a pair of earrings i never wear anymore, but it basically just didn’t work, so I used some blanks.
All I had to do was hot glue the shells to the backs, and badda boom:
I love the creamy color; I feel like these will go with just about anything.
For this, you will need a t shirt, scissors and a hot glue gun. I used this tank, just because I love the texture. I’m pretty sure it would work for a t, so I’m including it in the 100 ways :)
- Cut your shirt in half, and then cut the top off, so you have 2 loops. If your shirt isnt fitted like mine, you might want to make one of your loops smaller by cutting it open, trimming some off, and tying it back into a loop.
- When you cut the top off, make sure you leave enough to cut a strip from, about 10 inches by 1-2 inches. Put your loops together in your desired fashion.
- Although the strip part is optional, I hot glued it down, wrapped it, and hot glued it again, to secure the two loops together.
A fringed clutch!
Materials: scissors, an old unused bag (mine was a dingy makeup bag), a hot glue gun, your tee of course, and you also might want to grab a ruler.
- Measure the length of your purse/bag. The length of mine was 11 1/2 inches. Now, use this measurement to create strips that are 3-3 1/2 inches wide and your needed length. (My strips were 11.5 X 3.5 inches)
- Cut slits to make fringe, about 1 cm wide and 2 inches long, on the length of your strips.
- For attachment, I started by cutting a 2 inch wide strip to finish the bottom with. this is optional, it just looked better because of the seams on the bag.
- Attachment of the fringed strips with hot glue is in many ways up to you, and depends on the style of your bag. I just glued mine on to the front and back, and then attached a separate strip to run along the sides and bottom.
- Overlapping is another thing kind of up to you. It all depends on the look you’re going for! I just lined mine up so that they overlapped as little as possible, so that the cuts in the fringe are just far down enough that there is nothing behind the strips shown. You can see what i mean (kind of) in the picture above. It might take a few tries, it did for me anyway. But after they are all glued on, it gives a great effect!
- Spice your own up with beads, buttons, charms, or not. I plan on thrifting a chain for a strap. This is medium difficulty, but you’ve got room for error. And it takes a lot of glue. But I’d say it’s worth the work, isn’t it adorable? :)
This T is only for t’s that you like the pattern/logo for. My sister was cleaning out her closet and donated a lovely otter shirt to my craft box that she got at the chicago aquarium. I dont have how to pictures; they’re on my friend’s camera and she’s on vacation. This t was inspired by forever 21’s new collection of WWF shirts.
- Cut off the collar. i wouldn’t widen it further until you try it on and decide that’s what you want.
- Cuff the sleeves. I rolled mine 3 times. I think I am going to add some fabric glue; these sleeves are too stubborn for ironing. You could also just stitch the top and bottom of the cuff.
- Cut off the hem at the bottom.
- Trace curves on both corners using a largish circular item, such as a penguin trash can. (like this: )
- You’re ready for high fashion.
This super easy and super chic and super comfy transformation only takes minutes. I did it to another shirt too, but kept the bottom as-is. Fun and simple :)
This is a pretty easy tutorial, but there are some things you will need: anything with a lace pattern you like. It can be a thick knit lace, a shirt, a doily, etc. whatever is around that you no longer need/want. You can always run down to the thrift store if you seem to be fresh out. I’m using a black lace shirt I no longer wear. You will also need elmers glue, shellac, water, and scissors.
- First, cut out the design you want from the lace. This part is completely up to you. Mine had a lot of cute flower and leaf designs for me to choose from.
- Now, mix half glue and half water. The amount just depends on however many earrings you are making, or how much glue you have on hand. In all honesty, it doesn’t take too much. I’m going to use 2 tsp water and 2 tsp glue, since I am making a lot of earrings. You can always add a bit more of each of you don’t have enough.
- Soak the lace in the solution. They don’t have to sit, so when they are completely saturated, just remove them and make sure to ring them out well. This process ensures that they wont ravel and stiffens them so they wont flop around.
- Lay them out flat to dry on wax paper or foil. When dry, spray them with a shalac or clear coat. This is important because the elmers glue will essentially melt if the earrings get wet.
- Now simply attach the lace to earring backs. You can use stud backs and hot glue them, for a simple method. You could also use hook earrings. To attach them, push a needle through the lace to create a hole. Then hook them on the loop at the bottom of the earring.
these make great earrings, and the look is completely up to you. you can even just skip the last step and use them as scrapbooking appliques! :) mine are drying, so ill post pictures later tonight! have a good day followers :3
