    Calling all analog girls living in a digital world: put a little boom in your tick tick with this wall clock makeover! We gave a plain old timepiece a graphic upgrade with some rooster print wallpaper from Voutsa; it adds major face value and instantly wakes up any wall.
To create:  Disassemble the clock by removing the cover, clock face and hands. Use a pencil to trace the clock face onto the back of the printed wallpaper, then cut out the circle with scissors. Adhere the printed clock face to the base with double sided tape. Reassemble the rest of the clock, insert batteries and hang where desired.

    P.S.- we’ve got our eye on you, and in our hair, and on our shoes! The evil eye is a symbol of protection in many cultures, and lots of artists and designers have adopted its bold stare to accent everything from jewelry to accessories and fashion. Pierre Hardy is in major focus this season with their peeper embellished pumps, so we took that eye-catching motif in a DIY direction by dressing it down atop a slip-on sneak, and added it to a hair accessory that’s equally worth a peek.
To create:  Print our nifty template on cardstock paper and cut out the individual patterns. Use tailor’s chalk to trace the eye pattern onto black faux-leather. Trace the white pattern on white fabric and the iris pattern on a colored fabric of your choice. Cut out the traced pieces, using embroidery scissors for precision. Arrange and glue the parts with the black at the top followed by the iris and the white piece. For a little sparkle, we added a gem on top. Use fabric tape to attach your eye piece to an accessory of your choice; we opted for a variety of shoes and a hair barrette.

    Sometimes the most gradual change to a room can make the grandest difference. When stuck without the time for a total repaint or rearrange, inspiration can be as close as a peek up to the glorious summer sky. Artists and designers have brought nature’s gradient hues indoors in many forms; one of our favs being New York artist Eric Cahan’s breathtaking Sky Series. We decided to recreate the vibe of those magic hour moments using the new ombré fabric from Springs Creative, proving you don’t have to be a master painter or photographer to create your very own masterpiece! 
To create: Use a ruler to measure and mark a 3” border around the canvas on the backside of the ombré fabric. P.S. - it comes in burgundy, green, purple, black, aqua and blue. Cut the marked lines with a pair of fabric scissors. Place the canvas at the center of the cut fabric and fold the 3” edge over. Staple along one side and work your way around the canvas, pulling the fabric tightly as you go. Create a series or one large scale piece, and hang your new work of art up for all to see.

    Fall into autumn by repurposing your summer denim with a baroque printed jean! Often the only thing that eases our transition into cooler months is the thought of stepping into more fashion-y, less jean short-y, flip floppy outfits. But when seasonal shopping becomes a bummer on the wallet, it’s time to take your summer style the extra mile with a little DIY. Check out the poppin’ patterns we created on these Express denim staples…with some paint and baroque inspired stencils, these jeans are reborn as a fall fashion dream come true. 

To create:  Place the floral stencil onto the desired area of your Express jeans. We recommend starting from one end and working your way to the other. With a sponge pouncer fill in the stencil with white fabric paint. Peel off the stencil and let the paint dry for a few seconds. Repeat the steps until the entire surface of the jean is covered with a baroque pattern.

Let your footwear speak with a Carmen Miranda accent when you rock these Charlotte Olympia inspired wedges. A little bit of paint, a little bit of Sharpie and a lot of cha cha cha is all it takes to add a sweet and quirky accent to your heels. With summer coming to a close, there’s no reason not to go out with a tutti-frutti bang! 







To create the kiwi: Paint the wedge a bright green. Use a green sharpie to draw sunburst strokes around the top of the wedge. Draw another layer of sunburst strokes with a gold sharpie. Once dry, use a black sharpie to draw scattered seeds around the gold area.

To create the watermelon: Use a pencil to draw a 1/2” outline around the top of the wedge. Paint the wedge pink and the 1/2” area green. Once dry, draw seeds scattered across the pink area with a black sharpie. 

To create the pineapple: Use a pencil to draw a 1/2” outline around the top of the wedge; fill in with bronze paint. Paint the bottom area yellow. Once dry, use a brown sharpie to draw criss-cross lines across the yellow area. In the middle of the criss-cross diamond shapes, draw a tiny upside-down v-shape. Use a pencil to outline first for precision. Create a pom pom by gathering a bunch of green raffia, approx. 30 pieces 3” in length and tying another piece at the center of the bunch. Fasten excess on the center piece of raffia to the front strap of the shoe. Trim ends for a cleaner look. 

P.S. - to protect your masterpiece, spray the painted wedges with a sealer.

We know there’s an unworn, unloved lid hanging out somewhere in the back of your closet that’s never seen the light of day…so now’s the time to jazz, jewel and gem it up.  We were inspired by these Shourouk caps & now it’s hats off to those of you who are ready to show us what you’ve got! 







To create: Use a sponge pouncer to cover the entire cap with an even coat of metallic fabric paint; let dry completely. Add a dab of glue to the back of the earrings and brooch. Insert the earrings into the holes of the cap and pierce the brooch at the center. Bend or cut off the earring post and cover the back with a piece of tape to secure.


P.S.- We have teamed up Women’s Health Magazine for a September issue contest!  Decorate a plain baseball cap & send before-and-after photos to fashion@womenshealthmag.com by September 8 to win a DIY DREAM CRAFTING KIT. Click here for more details and now it’s hats off to those of you who are ready to show us your own creations!

    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.

P.S. - Have you started collecting your PSIMT x Indego Africa patches yet? 

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.

Sold in sets of two, P.S.-I Made this…with Indego Africa limited edition patches are available on indegoafrica.org, and all proceeds go directly back to the cooperatives. Join in on our Colorful Mission for Good and learn more by watching the videos and checking out our behind the scenes coverage!

To create: Place gold and wooden beads onto a headpin. Use jewelry pliers to bend the end of the headpin into a circle then coil the rest around the base of the circle. Loop a jump ring onto the wire circle and connect it to the chain. Convert the chain into a necklace by adding a clasp to one end and a jump ring to the other. Pierce the tops of the P.S. x Indego Africa patches with an awl and link jump rings through the hole to attach it to the necklace.

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.

    This summer’s dressed-down dress code is all about the shortall trend.  Do your denim a favor by adding some colorful flair for yourself and the little ones in your life! We’re excited to team up with Old Navy for a DIY that lets fashionistas get crafty with colorful vibes. Five of our favorite mommy bloggers have been challenged to show us how they customize their Old Navy basics with materials from our coveted craft closet. Stay tuned to see how Lady & Prince,  Cakies,  Ivory Lane, Hither and Thither, and Ramshackle Glam personalize their gear- we’re PSyched!
 
To create: Trim one end of a friendship bracelet with scissors. Place a piece of permanent fabric tape along the back of the bracelet; trim off any excess tape. Peel the back of the fabric fuse then place carefully along the strap of your shortalls. Repeat to the other strap. Tack down with a few stitches for extra security. Create fun embroidered moments with a needle and embroidery thread. Stitch in the shape of X’s, triangles, arrows and stars. Add wrapped accents around the seams of the pocket and belt loops to tie in all the embroidered moments.

Stay tuned to see how Lady & Prince,  Cakies,  Ivory LaneHither and Thither, and Ramshackle Glam personalize their gear- we’re PSyched!
     
    To create: Trim one end of a friendship bracelet with scissors. Place a piece of permanent fabric tape along the back of the bracelet; trim off any excess tape. Peel the back of the fabric fuse then place carefully along the strap of your shortalls. Repeat to the other strap. Tack down with a few stitches for extra security. Create fun embroidered moments with a needle and embroidery thread. Stitch in the shape of X’s, triangles, arrows and stars. Add wrapped accents around the seams of the pocket and belt loops to tie in all the embroidered moments.

Looking to add some nautical thematic flair to your festivities? When it comes to summer celebrations and DIYs, we’re all about the more the merrier…that’s why we invited Ed from Stencil1 to the party to show off the new designs he created in collaboration with Plaid. We used his clean & cool nautical graphics to add a classy touch to a set of glasses. Get creative and make your own set in a mix of colors and shapes that will have your guests cheering sips ahoy! 






To create: Place the rope stencil around the base of the tumbler and hold in place with a few pieces of paper tape. Use a paintbrush to fill in the stencil with metallic enamel paint (P.S.- we used Pure Gold, Silver Sterling & Antique Copper). Let the paint dry completely then carefully peel off the stencil. Create a set with different color paints then whip your new DIY creations at your next outdoor BBQ or picnic.
