Diy Floral Cuff

Today’s diy is a floral cuff, I will show you two ways to add a pretty little floral touch to any cuff that you may have lying around!

This first diy is fairly simple all you need is a cuff and fabric paint or acrylic paint. If you don’t have any cuff  or fabric paint you can get a cuff at Micheal’s that’s where I got mines on sale for less than $3 and that’s also where I got my fabric paint.For the cuff you can also probably purchase one at any store that sells accessories/ jewellery.

Step 1: Grab your fabric paint and cuff and start painting and then let dry and then you have a pretty floral print on your cuff! I chose a cherry blossom inspired print.

This second diy just requires some spare floral materials and crazy glue/glue gun, I chose this pretty black rosy print scarf that I had lying around from the Talize thrift store.

Step 1: Grab your fabric and cut out a strip as thick as you want, and then glue it diagonally and voilà there you have it!

Spring Where Art Thou?

Spring Poetry, a few words that express my thoughts.

Spring oh spring, where art thou? your essence follows my trail, but as I turn with excitement at the dawn of morning all I see is snow, but no!? why have thou not arrived? for your beloved awaits your arrival.

The shattering cold still haunts me and enters my bones and weakens my soul, I await for the day that cold turns into a warmth that enters my bones and strengthens my soul. Pure bliss is what your glorious rays give me and nourishes my body and soul, you give me hope, hope is what fills me and an exhilarating new reality is what you give me

Art- Spring Wonderland

Spring Wonderland is a piece of art I created inspired by a collaboration of ideas that resulted in this pretty little acrylic painting.

Influence:

Spring: This one is an obvious one, because the title is called ‘Spring Wonderland’ the flowers and roses scream spring. The abstract floral shape is actually  made by using a piece of lace as a stamp, which I thought created an beautiful effect.

Easter Eggs: The colours are also a inspiration of Easter eggs and Easter candies, yum!

Psychedelic 60’s: The wonderful swirls are reminiscent of the 60’s art and lava lamps, I thought this would make the art piece more playful with a touch of magic.

Spring Choker DIY

This diy is based on 2 current spring trends that I love, romanticism and chokers.

Romanticism, revolves around femininity, lace, jewels and sensuality and chokers a 90’s trend that has come back, has been in trendy for some time now and has transitioned from winter to spring. I came up with this diy choker idea when I realized there were very few options for white lace choker,so I thought why not create my own!

Most of the supply items that I used can be found at an art store like Michael’s and sometimes Dollarama. Here are the following steps:

Choker diy 3

 Getting supplies and creating the tassel pendant.

Step 1: Get some white lace, pearl pendants, white thread, gold chain, ribbon crimp closure, pliers and scissors.

Step 2: This step is optional if you want to add the tassel pendant, other wise you can go on to step 3.Get the white thread, cut a piece of thread ( 2-3 inches) centre it at a level, at which size you want the tassel bulb to be. Then start tying 2 or 3 knots till it feels secure. Cut the remaining threads at the bottom at a length you prefer.

 Attaching pearl pendant to tassel and attaching it to lace.

Step 3: Get a pearl or diamond pendant, I got my pearl pendant from Michael’s, I personally think that they have the best selection for craft pendants. Grab your pair of pliers and open up the metal ring and place it in between the knot made previously on the tassel and clasp it and close the opening.

Step 4: Cut some of your lace based on how long you want it to be, or like me you can cut it short, and show more of the gold chain, which I thought looked a little bit more edgy. Then take your ribbon crimp and clamp it down at the edges of the lace.

Last step! Attaching the chain.

Step 5:  Last but not least, attach the chain to the ribbon crimp with the pliers and add the closing necklace hook, and your good to go, there you have it your very own spring lace tassel choker!
