Trash 2 Treasure: How to Save Your Junky Old Costume Jewelry

Posted by Honor on Thursday, September 12, 2013, In : Accessories 

Wait! Stop! Halt! Do NOT throw out your worn junky looking costume jewelry! You know what I'm talking about.... Any self respecting lay-day has a drawer full of bracelets, rings and necklaces that are either missing some rhinestones/jewels or have half the plating rubbed off to reveal that icky bronzy cheapy looking color. Ugh right? These pieces were so loved at one time, but now cast aside, scorned to be long forgotten in the 'jewelry junk drawer'. But have no fear! All is not lost! With a ...

Posted by Honor on Thursday, June 27, 2013, In : Accessories 

    I felt like whipping up something pretty and sparkly today and this ridiculously simple an' easy diy definitely did the trick. Totally satisfied my girly itch.

All sad and lonely. But ahHA no more, no more! Here are the deets. You will need to pick up a pack of the hair pins with a fla...

DIY Turban (No Tie) Headband

Posted by Honor on Friday, March 15, 2013, In : Accessories 

Ok, I might lose some of you on this one. 'Wait wha??? A Turban??!?!'  you might be saying right now. Yes a turban... a turban headband that is! Turbans have become quite popular these days with the super fashionistas, I just try to follow in suit with a more do-able 'me' version. Hear me out. Let's look at some eye candy before you write me off with all this crazy turban talk.

DIY Glitter Rainboots

Posted by Honor on Monday, February 25, 2013, In : Accessories 


Anyone else like to rock rain boots on a nice sunny day? Me and my little gal sure do. I'm thinkin she picked it up from me ;) . We love to plop on our wellies (or goat ropers, as my husband calls them) to do a little gardening or what knot, regardless if there are puddles to stomp through or not. I have a festive pink and white polka dot pair, but poor Lou only has a plainie janie black rubber pair. Perfectly functional and acceptable but not nearly fashionable enough for a gal with this muc...

DIY Watercolor Flower Pin

Posted by Honor on Tuesday, February 19, 2013, In : Accessories 


Guess who is on a pink and orange kick?

    Moi! 

   My diy watercolor spritzed envelopes from yesterday were only the beginning! Not only am I embellishing my correspondence with O&P now I am adorning myself with the cheery color combo. During the fall/winter, I find myself pining for the bold colors and life of spring/summer. So how do I put on a happy face? By pinning on a flower to my jacket or scarf. I made a big ol batch of simple flower pins a couple of falls ago and now they are...

DIY Watercolor Bangle

Posted by Honor on Tuesday, February 5, 2013, In : Accessories 






I knew there was something I could do with all those left over tape rolls!

  Do you do that? Hoard left overs until you can figure out a way to reuse them? I swear about 90% of my office closet is full of those so called 'craft supplies'. Think bags of wine corks, toilet and paper towel tubes, wrapping paper scraps... pretty much everything you would call trash. But I can't do it! I guess it is the hoarder coming out in me. You know we all have a little of that. Hoardism. Hoardalitis. Hoardlue...

DIY Nail Polish Oxford Refashion

Posted by Honor on Thursday, January 31, 2013, In : Accessories 





   Pretty nifty refashion, eh? Just scoop up some neon pink bottles of nail polish from the dollar store, rescue your long forgotten plain oxfords from the bottom of the closet and paint away. There really isn't much more to it... but here are some extra pointers

Tips & Tricks:
*Work in the shade. Learned that the hard way. If you sit in the hot sun, it will bake that nail polish so fast, you won't be able to spread it fast enough and will be left with some hideous lumps.
*Have some polish remo...

DIY Kate Spade Scallop Necklace

Posted by Honor on Monday, January 7, 2013, In : Accessories 
    So lately I have had glitter on the brain. Could it be because I was asked to collaborate with a big name on some glitter diys? (YAYYYYYYYY YIPPPPEEEE for me ;) ) Yeah I bet that's it. Details to come soon. Big toothy grin over here.

 But anyway I have been brainstorming up a storm (punny right?!) for this feature diy. Brainstorming is kind of my thing. I love bubble charts and lists. Any scrap piece of paper is subject to my doodles and ideas. But now that my feature diy is complete I tho...

My post yesterday (diy splatter refashion) was an easy refashion of this must know diy. Enjoy!

You can also get really creative with your choice of fabric. Just make sure to choose one that has some weight and stiffness to it otherwise you will have one floppy mess.

And I really mean it by super easy. Literally ten minutes to a fab new accessory (or make up bag, pencil pouch, diaper tote... whateves ;)

White Tee Refashion into Tribal Infinity Scarf

Posted by Honor on Tuesday, December 18, 2012, In : Accessories 

Lately I have really been into fashion. Shocker right? But no, really. I bounce back and forth between home decor/home remodeling to fashion & purses... maybe shoes too :). I exhaust all outlets like pinterest, polyvore, blogs and flickr on one subject for about a week then switch to the other. Never ending, back and forth, back and forth. Am I alone in this quirk? One week my coffee table is covered in Vogue, Lucky and Elle. Then the next I clear it to cover it again with Country Living, Ell...

DIY Leather and Studs Necklace

Posted by Honor on Thursday, November 8, 2012, In : Accessories 


Anyone remember Fiona Paxton? I sure do. Miz Paxton is a fabulous, glamorous, tremendous all the 'ous' adjectives you can think of, jewelry designer. Her beaded/chain Sylvie necklaces were all the rage a few years ago.

 They were popping up all over the place and on every 'it' female fashionista. Think Jessica Alba, Hilary Duff, Cameron Diaz ect ect ect. Well oh well... to this day I still think about those suckers and wish that I had a few hundo laying around so I could score myself one of th...

   Is it chilly by you yet? It was here for a hot minute (I guess for a crisp moment), but now we have this darn Santa Ana that blasts us with 80+ degree weather. Wah wah. I know I shouldn't be complaining about the fantastic weather we have here in southern Cali, but I can't help it. I want my sweaters and scarves and boots and cozy nights watching my husband lay naked in front of the fire on a bear skin rug... just kidding ;) but you get my point.

DIY Simple Ribbon Headband

Posted by Honor on Thursday, November 1, 2012, In : Accessories 
I love scarves and wear them any chance I can. As soon as there is the slightest crisp to the air I am wrapping that sucker around my neck. Here is my dilemma. I have long hair and if I wear a scarf, especially if it is a chunky knit, my hair soon turns into a tangled mess. Right there at the nape of my neck should be call 'rat-ville' for the nest that is created. Ouch!
 So what to do? A sleek little top knot or messy ballerina bun is my go-to. But that can get a little boring, so here is a...

DIY Sequin Scarf

Posted by Honor on Monday, October 8, 2012, In : Accessories 

    So this DIY really falls more under the 'refashion' category, which is co' cuz sometimes you just want to give what you already own a little sprucing up!
     I recently picked up this scarf because I really dug the busy fall print. It is huge! Which I love. Who cares what your outfit looks like when you have on a fabulous blanket? Wait, I meant scarf. I mean can you even see my baby spit up shirt under here?! No!

Hey Hey Hey Hi Hi Hi... I am all hopped up on creative juices. They are a'flowin. I am up to my eyeballs in Halloween decorations and thought I would take a quick breather to share a jewelry DIY. Give my spider web weaving fingertips a rest and let me noodle think about something else other than skulls, spiders and witches.

This fancy schmancy necklace gets a lot of compliments (but doesn't take very long to make and requires ZERO skills). If you can wield a pair of scissors and a hot glue gun...

DIY Boho Leather Feather Earrings

Posted by Honor on Friday, September 21, 2012, In : Accessories 
      What is it with me and earrings lately? I guess it is because I want to wear them so badly but can't. Those of you that have babies, or have ever baby-sat know what I am talking about. I see dangle-ly ones over here, pretty sparkly ones over there and (my fav) big ol retro hoops on her and her and her! But alas my earlobes can't take the tugging. Oh well! That doesn't mean I stop making them. Someday I will be able to wear earrings for more than 5 minutes. So besides earrings I also hav...

DIY Leather Leaf Hair Pin

Posted by Honor on Wednesday, August 29, 2012, In : Accessories 


Found myself longing for fall this week. Fall is fabulous don't you think? The weather is just lovely. You can wear coats, scarves, sweaters, boots, leggings and knit caps. Who doesn't love a great pair of boots over leggings with a cozy sweater and scarf?! There are also so many great fall activities like apple picking, pumpkin carving and baking. Not to mention the decorating... oh the decorating! Halloween and Thanksgiving are such fun holidays to decorate for. I already have a huge runnin...

DIY Fabric Scrap Bib Necklace

Posted by Honor on Tuesday, August 28, 2012, In : Accessories 
    
     Alright time to jump on the bib necklace bandwagon. You see them allllll over the place. At first glance I was like 'yeah right I really want to look like a gladiator/baby'... gladiator because it reminded me of armor and baby because it reminded me of well, a bib. But as always fashion styles grow on me until I find myself wearing a beret, harem pants a fur vest and lace boot socks all at the same time ;). Ok a little over the top but I honestly have changed my opinion on bib neckl...

DIY Faux Metal Lace Cuff

Ahhh September fashion issue... I do love you and your 'two-inch-thick-ad-section-before-you-even-get-to-the-table-of-contents'.  Lately I am loving the metal lace cuff bracelets that are showing up here and there. One such designer of these cuffs is Aurelie Bidermann. Her wares sell @ Bloomingdales, Barneys and Net-a-porter. All way way wayyyyy out of my price range.



ouch! this bad boy sells for over $1,800.... well... it is dipped in 18 karat gold.

DIY No Beading Indian Beaded Bracelet

Posted by Honor on Tuesday, August 14, 2012, In : Accessories 
so lately I have really been feeling the Indian beaded bracelet look. Perfect for summer. Free spirited. Just plain cool and they really never go out of style. A classic.





What is not so cool is how time consuming they seem to be. Granted I have never tried to make one, they just seem to be time consuming.

Plus I don't have any of the supplies required to make them.

So here is what I believe to be a clever way to make a faux Indian beaded bracelet.

Anthropologie Inspired Canvas Tote

Well the baby boy is here and I am in dire need of a new diaper/tote bag. Nothing to fancy. I never really loved any of the diaper bags out there on the market these days. Either to bland or to baby.

I just knew I could create a cheap fix. So here it goes. This took me a few days to put together. Not bec...

How to Make a Pearl Embellished Bangle Bracelet
