IT’S CALLED FASHION – Add a little something anywhere

I do this very often, I have a ton of small hair accessories or brooches that I like to put on a shirt, a t-shirt or even a coat. It gives a different or cuter vibe to it in seconds!

Here I added a small flower (normally used for hair) to a simple top. Cuter in a second :)

Gosto muito de acrescentar acessórios a qualquer camisa, t-shirt ou até casaco. Um pequeno acessório pode transformar um look em segundos!

Aqui foi o que fiz. Este ganchinho de cabelo acrescentado a um top básico dá-lhe logo um ar mais fofo e diferente ;)

Love,

IT’S CALLED DIY – Paper Pom Poms

I just loooove these pom poms! and they’re so easy to make :)

I followed Martha Stewart’s tutorial HERE, but there are a lot of them on the web.

I made these to go over a buffet table for a party I’m planning here at home, but they’re cute pretty much everywhere!

You can make them whatever size or colour you want….

Here I just hung them in my craft room, but I’ll show you the pics after the party :)

IT’S CALLED DIY – Washi Tape Moleskine

I had bought this white Moleskine on my last trip to London. it was actually a limited edition from Selfridges.

I didn’t know what to use it for, until I got engaged in December and decided to use it as my Wedding Planner. After a week of carrying it all the time in my bag, it obviously started to turn “not-so-white”, grey even :-/

I took the opportunity to make a DIY of it!

I had this cute washi tape on hand, so in a matter of minutes my Moleskine was as sweet as new!

Try it out!

Love,

IT’S CALLED DIY – Art

I had this giant Ikea New york print for years, I loved it but having seen it in so many places, I felt it needed a little something…

So I just bought some wooden letters, spray painted them red and glued them on!

I’m a big Ikea fan, but what I like more is transforming Ikea items :) (See THIS post) And this was a good way to personalize my Art.

Enjoy!

Love,

It’s called DIY – Glitter phone charger

tumblr_mcervf5b2r1qc09teo11_r1_1280

Ok, I admit… I’m addicted to Glitter!

But I saw this DIY somewhere on the internet and couldn’t resist to spruce up my charger a bit. Aren’t those white chargers just soooo boring?! :p

This one is easy easy!

You’ll need :

– A charger (!)

– Some Tacky glue, Mod podge or any other white glue…

– Glitter in whatever colour you like

– Top coat Polish

Basically you just cover the charger with glue. I used a swab but you can use a little sponge or a painting brush. Make sure to miss no spot.

Pour the Glitter all over the charger.

Let it dry.

Apply the top coat once or twice. This step is to make sure you don’t get your hands (and everything you touch!) all “Glittered” every time you use your charger.

Let it dry.

And that’s it! Easy right? and you have a super cute charger <3

IT’S CALLED DIY – Shoes

I bought these sandals at Zara the other day, only to come back home and find out I had bought almost the same ones last year and had forgotten about them.

Not a problem, it was a good excuse for a DIY, especially for using some glitter, which I had been missing… :)

The result is a super sweet and summer-y pair of sandals! Although the process is very easy, this one was a bit more tricky and took more time because of the studs and spikes that I had to clean one by one after. But still very much fun!

Step by Step :

  • Cover the shoe with white glue (Like Tacky Glue)
  • Sprinkle the glitter all over it ( I chose gold glitter but you can use other colors of course).
  • Let it dry
  • Take off the loose glitter by shaking them (Better to do this outside!)
  • Reapply to fill possible gaps
  • Make the glitter stick by applying either spray glue or an acrylic coating (I use Krylon’s Crystal Clear coating for a better finish)
  • Et Voilá!

Easy and fun DIY you can do to any type of shoes, (Miu Miu style!) either on the whole shoe or just on the heel. whatever. The sky is the limit!

Show me you Glitter shoe DIY’s!
