DIY Inspired

We all know I love a good deal. I like to think of myself as a cheap thrifty person, but aside from sewing, I don't really consider myself very crafty. That's why I decided it's time to dabble in some DIY. These are a few ideas I've come across in the last few days that I'd like to try soon.

1. This neon necklace was created by simply spray painting a rhinestone necklace. The coolest part about this project is that you can keep changing the colors and always have a new statement necklace. This brilliant idea comes from Geneva, the voice behind A Pair & a Spare, who admits herself that this is about as easy as DIY gests.

2. I immediately smiled when I saw these mustache shoes on A Matter of Style, who says that's the effect Studio Rain wanted them to have. They can be easily made by cutting out felt mustaches and sticking them on to some colorful round toe heels. Depending on the material of the shoe, you could use small pieces of velcro, double-sided tape, or even just glue.

3. This fishtail skirt is another genius creation from Geneva over at A Pair & a Spare, which has pretty much become one of my new favorite blogs. This project is a little more difficult than the others because it requires more precision and more importantly, the ability to sew. I might give this one a try after I finish all my other sewing projects that I've been neglecting.

4. Last, but definitely not least, is this beautiful pearl collar necklace from one of my favorite bloggers, Gaby over at Fashionable Collections. This project would definitely require a lot of patience and time because all the pearls are sewed on by hand. As long as you can use a needle and thread, you can't really mess this up.
