DIY bracelet holder tutorial


Buy a plain metal paper towel holder...

...spray-paint it pink (or any colour you want really!)...

...voila!...stash your cuffs and bracelets! couldn't be easier!



This is the easiest project ever and it looks really cute! I had seen this on pinterest some time ago and think it's a cool idea!(Oh by the way if you are not already following me on pinterest,what are you waiting for?? you can do so here!) Back to the project: Just take a paper towel holder and stash your bracelets!As simple as that! It's called repurposing and it's my cup of tea! I didn't like the metal colour and spray-painted it pink(what else?!?) but you can leave it as it is-or you can paint it in the colour of your choice! The only problem is I need to make one more,because there isn't enough room for all my cuffs and bracelets here!  :)) What are your thoughts on repurposing / upcycling??

DIY projects







Ok,here are some of my latest DIY projects.A sort of ''grown-up friendship bracelet'' and spray-painted jewellery! :) The friendship bracelet is made from satin cords and a glittery button.As for the earrings,I've been looking for a pair of huge gold(en) earrings ever since I saw Rihanna's 'Rehab' video,that is since forever! It sure seems so,it's been at least two and a half years,probably more! Of course never before had I thought that you could spray-paint almost anything.That happened a few months ago since I became a pinterest maniac!! So since I didn't manage to find a pair I liked, when I came across this pair I decided it was time to buy a gold-coloured spray and try my luck.To tell you the truth I wanted to add a layer of gold glitter spray and I will as soon as I find a shop that sells it! And last but not least the yellow neon coloured necklace inspiration came from 'a pair and a spare' blog.You can find the tutorial here.Remember the H&M necklace shown here? I bought two identical with the intention of spray-painting one of them in a neon colour.I was torn between neon pink and neon yellow.Again I searched and searched high and low for the desirable colours and couldn't find any of them.And finally in one of my trips home last weekend, I found a neon yellow spray,hurray! At last!! I really liked how it turned out,can't wait to wear this! :) Have you ever done any spray-painting or other projects? Feel free to send me pics or paste a link! xoxoxo

Hello sweeties! My heart screams for spring but my body still feels the cold which definitely says winter! Hence,the mixed images with spring and winter outfits! I went skiing on Sunday though, and it was great! Really enjoyed it! It was sunny and the snow was all sparkly and glittery!! Above is a photo I took with my iphone :))  xoxoxo
