DIY Day Glo Earrings



These baubles are sure to brighten up any outfit. Check out Erin’s post for a step by step tutorial.

DIY Dotty Belt


How many times have we bought a dress or a skirt with a plain belt attached and then the belt never gets used. Here is a great tutorial from Sorcha for jazzing up that boring belt with studs and nail polish. Put a little heavy metal in your wardrobe.

DIY Pinata


Jolleen at simplyjolleen.com pitched this idea for a baseball pinata. She’s so right when she says than no one is too old for birthdays or pinatas. Blindfolded, stick wielding, candy consumption; not just for kids anymore!

Now let’s see your latest creation! You could be featured in our weekly Community Projects feature too.
