It’s so hard to admit it, but back to school season is nearly upon us. One of the best parts of the back to school season is shopping for new clothes! I loved to think about my own personal style and how best to show it off every year. Here are some fun DIY ways to show off your style and crafty abilities for the first day!
When it comes to my personal stuff, I’m definitely not the most organized person. Decluttering is not my strong suit. I’m all for anything that makes it easier for me to clean up after myself, so that’s why I’m all about this handy collapsible storage bag.
I love bracelets, they are my go to jewelry. Maybe it is because after my watched died about 15 years ago, I never replaced it, and my arm felt naked without something there. This bracelet is quick and easy to crochet, and after the first one, you will want to make more. I mean, you need one in every color, right?
Even though I’m from Portland, I’m not a fan of any weather other than blue sky. In the summer, I can be a little more open to the idea of clouds in the sky. I still prefer these little felt clouds to the real thing, though.
A lot of my project ideas come from me wondering if a specific material will work in a different way. “Hm, I wonder if Mod Podge Photo Transfer will work on clay” (it does) “What will happen if I use Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge with tissue paper?” (confetti mugs) “This alcohol ink set looks like stone when blended together. What will it look like on a mug?” (this). So being me and loving alcohol ink for the last few years, I though about these plastic beads I had at the office and naturally wondered what they would like like covered in alcohol ink.
I have been bitten by the tassel bug, and have now gone tassel crazy. I had so much fun making tassels for the DIY Tassel Necklace, that I just had to make more. These bracelets are so much fun, wear one or two at a time, or even all of them, and I promise people are going to ask you where you got them.
