YOU WILL NEED :
- Faux fur
- A ruler / tape measure
- 4 to 6 metal shoe clips like these
- Glue (here I used a glue gun but you can use any accessory / strong glue)
Step 1 : Measure around the ankle of your shoe and decide on the height you want to give your fur. Don’t forget to add 5cm to that last figure, so that you can fold the fur inside the boot at the top (nice and cosy!). Here is a quick illustration of those dimensions :
To see how to clip the fur onto your shoes, check out yesterday’s video – but it’s pretty self-explanatory really, I’m sure you’ll catch on quickly ;-)
To make the faux fur clips for my trainers, I measured around the back of the shoes (15cm) and counted 10cm for the height – that’s 5cm for outside the shoe and 5cm to fold inside. So quick and easy and yet so casually stylish ! LOVE !
Today’s tutorial has been in the works for a really long time. It’s also finished since quite a while but I just haven’t gotten around to posting it. What a shame. But now I’ll finally show you how I created extra storage in my kitchen for spice jars, spatulas and pot holders.
The pallet I used for this project I found on the street. There is a copy shop right at the corner that always puts out these pallets onto the street at night. In my opinion, what’s been put on the street is free to take so I took one home with me.
I added hooks and ledges and hung it up on the wall.
Here is the full how-to:
What you need
1. Hammer in all nails that might stick out so you don’t hurt yourself when sanding
2. Sand your pallet with the coarse sanding paper first, then finish with a finer sanding paper
3. I then painted my pallet with white wood paint. But you could also you any other color. How about petrol blue or mint green?
4. I added three wooden ledges, a magnetic knife holder and 6 white hooks. Plus a metal flowerpot for pens and scissors.
There are a lot of reasons to make your own chains. If it’s to replace tarnished or broken chains, change the look of a necklace or just whip up something quick before a big night out you’ll definitely appreciate this little snippet of knowledge. Making necklace chains like this involves using jump rings. For an expert way to use these check out my post on How to Open and Close Jump Rings like a Pro
1. Open a jump ring. Put one end of the chain and your chosen clasp (I’ve used a lobster clasp) onto the jump ring. Close the ring.
2. Open another jump ring and thread on the other end of the chain. Close the jump ring again.
That’s it! So simple once you know how right? Hope you’re all having a great weekend!
You will need:
- A gemstone mould
- a strong glue
- A bail; some sort of loop for the back of the pendant
- Jump Ring
1. Mix your concrete. Don’t worry about measurements (I don’t). Just put a little concrete mix and water in a throw away plastic container and mix until you have a consistency like double cream or tahini or thereabouts.
2. Rub a very thin layer of Vaseline over the mould and pour in enough concrete to fill the shape/s you require.
3. Leave to dry in a warm place for 12 - 24 hours. When the concrete is dry you should see it coming away from the edge of the mould.
4. Once fully dry use a strong glue to attach a bail. I’ve made my bail from a cord end. Unfolding both sides to create a flat surface.
5. Once dry attach the pendant to a chain.
