Let’s get fierce with fringe! Often considered part of a more boho, casual look, this trend is experiencing a chic upgrade thanks to designers like Tamara Mellon, Michael Kors, Miu Miu, Gucci & Stella McCartney getting turnt on tassel. From bags to skirts to shoes, it’s all about movement. So make a move to shake up your style with this DIY fringe skirt!
To create: Turn the skirt inside out then measure and mark 1/4-inch strips. P.S.- we recommend working from the center to the sides of the skirt. We used a gold sharpie to mark points on the seams and a ruler and black sharpie to connect the lines. Using sharp fabric scissors, cut the entire bottom hem off. Create fringe by cutting the strips with scissors.
This might be one of my favourite craft projects of the year! It’s such a sweet and crafty way to share memories and really gives photos of those you love an extra dimension. And because the photos are in black and white it gives them a cohesive look, which can be hard with some pics when you might not have the world’s best photography skills! This would make a really beautiful gift, and would be a great way to add photos to a baby’s room without the worry of glass photo frames.
We firmly believe, home is where the art is! Taking time to personalize the most precious place and letting your inner domestic DIY artist out is what it’s all about. Enter our friends at Tulip Home, whose new line of home décor inspired stencils and fabric paint allowed us to turn a plain pair of pillow covers into a confetti filled party for a couch! The possibilities for cool patterns and pops of color are endless with this clever little dot.
To create: Lightly apply the spray adhesive to the matte side of the polka dots stencil. Wait a minute before mounting the stencil to the pillow cover. Squeeze a dollop of each color fabric paint onto a plate. P.S. - we used ocean, aqua, nickel & gold. To achieve a unique color, we mixed the two metallic paints for an “antique gold” hue. Use a sponge pouncer to stamp the colors onto the stencil in a diamond pattern. Let the paint dry for a couple of minutes, then carefully remove the stencil. Wash and dry the stencil. Repeat the steps but place the stencil at a 45-degree angle. Mix up the colors when painting the diamond pattern. Once dry, peel to unveil a layered polka dot masterpiece. P.S. - personalize your pillow by adding a monogram using a paint roller and letter stencils.
