DIY Crazy

13 Jan

Howdy everyone!

I’m super busy with my first full week of student teaching, so I’ve scheduled a couple of posts (or more likely, knowing me, just this one) for while I’m at school!

I know everyone is addicted to Pinterest, and so am I, but I’ve found myself even more addicted to DIY jewelry that I find on Pinterest. As a poor college student, who is literally working a full time job without pay, I see lots of pretty things that I can’t necessarily afford. So I turn to the next best thing- making my own! I posted a photo in instagram (I just got instagram, I don’t understand it yet, but lets be friends!!)

Below are some of the photos of things I’ve made, as well as the links to where I got the idea/tutorial. (As opposed to making my own tutorial, because we all know I’m terrible at that.) Enjoy!

Aaahh… I can’t find or remember where I found this one. : ( But it definitly isn’t my own idea. It’s a bracelet made out of that clay you bake, then painted copper. If you’ve seen this around, let me know so I can credit it!!

This necklace didn’t really come from any one particular source (Although I’m sure there are some out there that look just like it) but I got the idea for clay necklaces from The Lovely Drawer.

I also made some earrings using the same technique! These two aren’t my favorite, so I may make different shapes/colors and put the new ones on the hooks. I’m not sure yet.

I posted about these fabric button earrings a few weeks ago!

And finally, this necklace. I got the tutorial from Oh The Lovely Things. Mine turned out a little different, I think my colors are less blended which isn’t exactly what I was going for, but I like it none the less.

And here are a few things I’m excited to make in the future:

Glitter Post Earrings
Twine Bow Ring
Beaded Necklace
Clay Rings

There are a ton more, but I won’t post them all! I hope you are all having a lovely Monday!!

Have you been bitten by the DIY bug? Have you pinned anything recently that you’re dying to make?

    I’ve been bitten by the PINNING DIY bug, not the actual crafting yet. ;) I did make the homemade paper bead bracelets and those were some of the coolest things ever.

    I love your last necklace picture. You’ve inspired me to do some more pinning (and perhaps creating? in the future) :)
