    Put some cool in your back-to-school clothes with this beaded pocket shirt we created with Old Navy. A sharp chevron accent works in any combo of colors and is a look that works for all ages; so create a family emblem or mix & match to show off your personal style…either way, this DIY is sure to get you an A+. 



To create: Outline the pocket of the shirt with paper tape. Tape off a third of the pocket into a v-shape to create a chevron design. Place a piece of wax paper inside the pocket to prevent the glue from seeping through. Use a paint brush to coat the area with a thick layer of fabric mod podge. Sprinkle seed beads across the glued area. Let dry for a few minutes, then coat the entire area with a thin layer of mod podge. Let dry completely. Repeat steps until the entire pocket is beaded. P.S. - avoid the pocket when hand washing and ironing the shirt; we recommend waiting 72 hrs before washing and not to use a heavy detergent.
 
P.S. - we’re excited to again team up with Old Navy for some back-to-school DIY. Five mommy bloggers have been challenged to show us how they customize their Old Navy basics with a few of our favorite materials. Stay tuned to see how Lady & Prince,  Cakies,  Ivory Lane, Design Mom, and Ramshackle Glam personalize their back-to-school pieces.

Even if the closest you’ve come to surfing is watching Blue Crush on repeat & singing everyone’s fav Beyoncé verse, we’ve nailed the perfect way for you to hang ten this summer…fingers, that is. We teamed up with cutting edge nail art guru Miho from Nails by Mei to bring you this surftastic design that’s a clean & simple way to put a little wave in your wave. 
  
To create: File your nails in an oval shape and paint a base coat, we used a nude color. Use a nail art brush to create a thin stripe down the center of each nail; we used a lime, pink, purple & berry color. Vary the width of the stripe or even double up for a fun variation. Paint a dollop of blue polish at the base of each nail. Use a toothpick to create a defined wave tip. Seal your design with a top coat.

Our collection of vivid handmade patches inspired by Africa’s rich color and landscape offers endless DIY opportunities…but this week’s project gets the award for most inventive and unexpected. In the spirit of bold statement necklaces, we combined our favorite patches with colorful beads and a chunky gold chain to create a piece with big personality. Make your own and wear it with the pride of knowing that your creativity makes a life-changing contribution to the women of the IBABA cooperative in Rwanda.

We’ve all got those summer wardrobe staples that always seem to make it into the weekend tote first…like that classic tank that pairs just as well with a bikini and cut offs as it does with a chic maxi skirt and sandals. If you’re smart, you’ve probably got a rotating set; so why not single one out for a creative upgrade? We teamed up with Splendid, our go-to for wear-anytime, softer than soft classics to turn a basic tank into a stroke of DIY genius. Get inspired by vivid watercolors and dream up your own design! 

To create: Insert a piece of bristol or wax paper inside the 1x1 Splendid tank top to prevent paint from bleeding through. Get your brush lightly wet and dampen the watercolor paints. Apply small brushstrokes across the collar of the shirt. Repeat with an array of colors. Soak your brush and blend the brushstrokes together for a softer look. Let dry completely before wearing.

P.S.- Join us at a Splendid store  near you on July 19th to create your own DIY tank top. Click here for more info.

Our recipe for doing things right is simple: go big, and go bright. A wrist that sports stacks of vivid color mixed with a bit of bling is a reminder of what summer is all about - letting loose and having fun with your friends, and your style. 


To create: Use scissors to cut a piece of paracord to the approximate size of your wrist and seal the cord by burning the tips. Squeeze a small dab of glue onto one end of the paracord and place the cord coil cap over. Repeat on the other end. Use pliers to attach a jump ring to one end and a lobster clasp to the other. Knot a piece of embroidery thread at the end of the cap and wrap the thread around the paracord until approx. 1” is covered. Intertwine a piece of colored Swarovski cup chain (1” smaller than your wrist length) and wrap the embroidery thread twice between each rhinestone link. Double knot the thread once you’ve finished wrapping the entire bracelet.

While you’re layering on the patriotic colors to celebrate Independence Day, why not give the dessert table a little red, white and blue treatment too? We saw fireworks when we discovered JARS by DANI’s deliciously decadent homemade parties  in a jar, and decided to take it next level together, with this layered cake. 

To create: Follow the instructions for the cake mix and add in drops of food coloring to the batter. Create two cake batters, a red and a blue mix. Bake the cakes accordingly. Once cool, use a knife to carve the cake into a circular shape that will fit into the 9” trifle bowl. Carefully insert the first layer of the carved red cake into the bowl. For the second layer, cover the top of the cake in an even coat of sprinkles. Carve and insert a layer of blue cake. Add a layer of white chocolate chips then a layer of whipped cream and repeat layering until the entire trifle bowl is filled. Top it off with a decorative flag, line up chocolate chips to create stars and stripes; fill in red and blue areas with sprinkles.

Springtime is the right time to invite nature into your home and throw a party; so this week we’re collaborating with the crafty crew at MakersKit to PS-ify their Hanging Terrarium Kit. Pops of color and textural accents add fun personality to the delicate tones of an air plant arrangement…so join in and learn why getting your hands dirty never looked so purdy! 





To create: Use a paint maker, add a pop of color to the rocks. Soak your air plant, submerging in water at room temperature for 10-20 mins, then set aside on paper towel. Fill your glass bulb with the rocks then layer moss and top it off with the air plant. Connect a jump ring to the top of the glass bulb then loop a long piece of paracord and hang where desired. Create a few arrangements in different colors for a fun mix. Air plants are easy to take care of, place it in indirect sunlight and spritz the plant every week with a water atomizer.

Crush that feeling you get when you walk into a room and someone’s rocking the same frock or toting the same tote by following these three simple rules: personalize, personalize, personalize. These gem inspired bag tags glam up your gear and add that extra pop of color that sets you apart from the crowd. 




To create: Use a sharpie and ruler to draw a 3” x 8” rectangle and another 1” x 16” strip onto the backside of the leather. Cut out the two shapes with sharp fabric scissors then snip a small opening at the center of the rectangle. Apply a thin line of leather glue along the sides of the rectangle shape and carefully fold over. Let the glue dry for a few minutes then use scissors to trim off the edges to convert the rectangle into a gem shape. Use a gold sharpie and draw gem details onto the surface of the leather (use a ruler for precision). String the leather strip through the small opening on the gem and loop it through the handle. P.S.-That’s our favorite Milly satchel stepping in to model for this DIY!

In anticipation of the hot summer days and long balmy nights that are just around the corner, we’re setting the mood with ESCADA’s new limited edition fragrance, Born in Paradise. Inspired by Piña Coladas, its delicious scent transports you to an exotic haven with an enchanting blend of pineapple, coconut milk and zesty fruit notes. To properly dress up this tropical fantasy, we created a whimsical floral clutch that makes for the perfect scent-cessory. 




To create: Use wire cutters to cut off the stems of silk flowers. Apply hot glue to the back of each flower then press it against the surface of the clutch. Continue to glue and press, layering on different silk flowers until the entire clutch is covered.
