Hair Dos and How Tos

Quick And Easy Silverware Pockets

My cousin’s shower had a rustic burlap vibe and I wanted to tie it all together on the tables. I had a lot of leftover burlap from her door wreath, so I thought using it to make some silverware pockets would be cute and easy. I made two versions – one no-sew (the one above) and…

DIY Multi-Strand Burlap Wreath

I wanted to have something pretty and festive on my front door for my cousin’s shower this weekend, but couldn’t find anything pre-made that I loved. I thought I’d try to make something with a standard styrofoam wreath base, but then I came across this square wire wreath frame and I thought that would be more…

Easy Pom Pom Hair Clips

I’ve been stockpiling hair clips and doodads for Annie’s return to school, grabbing cute duds for Annie’s locks whenever I come across them. And, as always, when I see something that’s cute but too expensive (for me), I take note and make it myself. I came across some pom pom hair clips and knew immediately…

Braided Fauxhawk

I received a lot of requests for a tutorial on how I did my hair for the Britney Spears concert. It looks complicated but I’d say its difficulty level is about a medium. You have to, at minimum, know how to do a french braid, but I think this looks even cooler if you know how…

Five-Minute Shoe Bling

Annie saw shwings the other day and her mind was blown. I’ve heard from friends that they can be a bit of a tripping hazard on younger feet, so I told her I’d make her some shoe bling that was a little safer but still fun. I came across stiffened felt at my local Joann craft…

Easy DIY Crayon/Pencil Roll

I’ve been looking for a cute party favor to give out at Annie’s Back To School party, and I thought a crayon/pencil roll would be cute and functional. They’re great for school or for throwing in your purse to pull out at restaurants. You only need basic sewing skills (hand or machine) and the rolls…

DIY Pull Hearts On A String

I’ve been making little things here and there for my cousin’s wedding shower, and these paper hearts on a string are my current project. They look like simple strips of folded paper, but when you pull on the strings the magic happens. Annie is absolutely obsessed with them (I can’t blame her, they’re pretty fun),…

No-Sew Leather Headband

At the beginning of the year I bought myself a pretty colored leather headband, and I have no idea what happened to it. I have my suspicions, of course *cough* Annabel *cough*. Instead of tracking down another headband, I thought I’d make one. It’s one of the simplest things I’ve ever made, and it looks…
