I know I’ve been away for a while, but I’ve just been traveling a lot. And I missed Valentine’s. Oh well… 😉
Here’s a little outfit I put together. Maybe for Valentine’s with your besties. I wanted to go 80s trash, but still make it look modern.
I wore skinny, ripped jeans from New Yorker paired with a simple loose, white top. Over it I have this awesome turquoise leopard cardigan and I’m wearing my favourite heels. For accessorizes, since I wanted 80s, I just threw on some chunky gold jewelry and a clutch to go with the heals.
Now you tell me. Did I manage to look 80s trash, but still like I didn’t time travel to today like I wanted to? haha
Here is an 80s song for the end. Omg, it was so hard to choose, there are so many great ones! The list goes on and on!
Which is your favourite song from the 80s?
Also, which is your favourite era to dress up as? Leave a comment! 😉
I already did a post on these kind of bracelets (in Croatian though. How is Google translate everyone? Or should I rewrite it in English?!), but here is just to show off a little bit of what I’ve made so far.
If you want to make your own, here is a tutorial I followed. It is really not that hard and in the end you have a nice gift for someone (or yourself).
And here is some inspiration of what you can do when you know the basicmacrame knot. You can really do a lot from just that! You just need some cord, pendants, pearls and creativity!
I get my pendants and cord from E-bay. It is really the best. You can get up to 28 m for a dollar in all sort of colours.
Hope you will make some bracelets too now and show me how it turned out! 🙂
Continuing with my love of working with denim scraps since I have a lot of that now after the wall organizer.
An easy and short project.
Just make a template of a circle (mine was 4 cm in width) and cut out circles out of the denim. Once you’ve got them, fold them in half twice and glue with hot glue gun. You’ll have lots of petals now. Glue them to a circle felt so you get a flower and then glue the flowers onto the final piece of felt which is in the shape you wish the necklace to be. And finally, sew/glue a chain/a piece of satin ribbon so you can tie it.
And voila, you have a beautiful necklace!
You can also make it a broche, a hair clip or something else. Whatever you want!
Hope the instructions were clear. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate! 🙂
