DIY Pyramid Stud Earrings – Vince Camuto Inspired

August 23, 2012

Using the leftover pieces from the studded phone case DIY, I made a few earring sets inspired by these Vince Camuto pair. This is a no brainer DIY so you can do this even with your un-craftiest friend:)

The key to this Pyramid Stud Earrings DIY is having the iron back studs since they are filled and not hollow. 

Supplies:
Earring Backs
IRON BACK Pyramid Studs (Find some here)
Super glue or E-6000 Glue (found at Hobby Lobby)
Instructions: I think you all can figure out this one;) 
So this is your chance to do a fun and easy project, and prove to yourself you can DIY! …and maybe make some extras for your fam and friends. 

DIY: Kate Spade Inspired Dot Stud Earrings

March 29, 2012

I saw these little beauties floating around on pinterest and of course being smitten by all things Kate Spade I wanted to own them. My frugal and creative wheels starting turning (can never turn that off unfortunately) and a simple and easy DIY was born…
Supplies:
Wood Furniture Buttons ($1.47 for a pack of 30!)
Nail Polish color of choice
Earring flatbacks
Super glue
Tape
Clear nail polish (optional)
I used clear nail polish on one set for a shiny finished wood look and left the other unfinished.
Cost: I only had to buy the wooden buttons and earring backs, both which come with several pieces. The rest are items you usually have on hand, so the cost is next to nothing!

Instructions:
1. Cover half of the wooden studs with tape (washi worked great for me). 
2. Paint the other half with nail color of choice. (I used a few favorites I had on hand: Essie Tour de Finance & Turquoise and Caicos). Let dry for a few minutes.
3. Remove the tape and attach the flat back earrings to the back of the wooden studs using super glue. Let dry.
These would be fun in almost any color:) Share your results if you try it out!

P.S. Another fantastic colorblock DIY I saw via Green Wedding Shoes for you to check out!

Remember how I was Holly Golightly for Halloween? I had these fantastic earplugs and it made me want to turn them into earrings. Well then I saw these on the Matchbook blog I was motivated to make a pair and share it here:) You know I like to keep my DIY’s simple, so its just 3 steps and 3 supplies!

– 2 in. Upholstery Tassels (bought from Hobby Lobby with several color options)

Steps:
1) Loop beads through top of tassels.
2) Tie a knot to shorten the length.
3) Hook earwires through the tops.
That is it! 3 steps, 3 supplies.

Perfect for a holiday party:) I might be wearing them with this top.
We started advent last week, so I pulled out our advent calendar and am trying my hardest to really make the most of this season, and help my little family prepare for the coming of the King!
Do you have any advent traditions??
Wishing you a Happy weekend ahead! 

Happy Friday.

We started plans for our laundry room in the basement. Every home project takes weeks to complete as I am learning, but the thought of having space wider than the size of the actual washer and dryer is all the motivation I need. Pinned a few ideas to get us started here.

Declutter: Bathroom + Bedroom Organization

January 10, 2018

 

I realized recently that with the whirlwind of the past year that I had learned to function with clutter all around me. It’s part of raising little ones who move faster than I do. However, I know not every space in our home has to be this way. When the kitchen or my bedroom is clean and clear I can feel the tension release from my shoulders and mind. I am much more likely to relax in a clean environment than not just because of the way I am wired. So after avoiding my dresser tops and bathroom space for months I finally spent the few hours to declutter and re-organize since this was on top of my caring for the mind goal. Here are a few things that help…

Put a bow on it. (Easy holiday look!)

November 29, 2017

 

I haven’t done much holiday anything yet, as my head is still spinning from Thanksgiving….BUT! I have a really easy idea if you are short on attire (or funds)! I wanted to snatch up this shirt from J.Crew, but then I thought, oh wait. It’s just ribbon around the sleeve cuff.  I already had this bell sleeve sweater. So grab any solid sweater from your closet, and a little ribbon of any color, and you’ve got yourself a festive shirt for your next Christmas party;) You can find some really good velvet ribbon prices on etsy. Here’s another look you could do with ribbon.

22 Piece Summer Capsule Conclusions

August 21, 2017

 

At the beginning of this capsule the number 22 seemed like a small number to work with for a whole summer. This is funny to me now considering there were a few items I only wore once or twice. I could have probably worked with 15 and been fine! It was eye opening to realize how I’ve lived in a state of excess for so long. It’s much easier not to think through what we wear and where we buy our clothing than it is to be intentional about it. I often just don’t feel like I have the brain space to think through a whole month’s worth of outfits. However, as I mentioned previously, after it was all said and done, this experience saved me time and money in the end! It also felt like I had an interior and mental shift along with it.
