getting crafty with it

A couple of weekends ago, I was in a crafty mood, so I did a couple of DIY projects.

1. The t-shirt scarf in the middle I made through the tutorial on Made This/Love This.  If you haven't joined yet, it is really easy to do so and I'm looking forward to doing more DIY projects alongside other people.  This one only took about 15 minutes to make and the result is a very cute accessory!

2. I got the idea for this little ring from Jamie of Blog Redhead.  Also, very simple to make- take a cute button and glue it to the top of a ring band and voilà, you've made yourself a ring!  This ring band came from a ring I bought where the top fell off, but I saved the band.  The button came from my collection of buttons that I store in the tin boxes (on the left) that I decorated myself.  Easy peasy way to make a unique ring!

Also, here's an outfit I wore when we were going through a cold spell a couple of weeks ago:

sweater- thrifted, tights and skirt- forever 21, boots- Wanted



Looking at the ring again, I wish I had made it sooner because it would have looked really cute with this outfit! Oh well, next time! =)

Tell me: Would you try one of these two projects?  Share with me anything you've made recently (food, clothes, jewelry, anything)!

That ring is so cute! Honestly I don't think that I have ever done a DIY, but I'm planning to sew a skirt soon :) xo

I've always admired DIYs but I don't do them often. Someday I'll find the time! The other day on a whim I clipped a big brooch onto a plain ring band; sort of an instant statement ring! I have a bunch of brooches that belonged to my great-grandmother so it was a fun way to use them. (:

I love that ring idea - and it sounds easy enough for even me to do. On another note, your off-white sweater in the outfit shots is soooo pretty!

i've heard of the tee scarf! I've been wanting to try it out (i'm too busy to do it just now), and that is a very cute idea for a ring and so simple. I have tons of old ring from my mom's hideous 1980's blazers (so basically BIG and bronze looking buttons) that I would love to do this with...I wonder if that would work?
