the DIY FAVES

So, Savannah and I are becoming aware of your DIY love, so expect to see more of that here. We will have makeup & hair tutorials as well as clothing, jewelry, and home DIY projects. We are excited to share these with you so be on the look out. In the meantime, here are some of my favorite DIY projects. Hope you enjoy!

the PALLET DAYBED - I loved this so much I made one myself and you can see it here. The details for the instructions come from ashleyannphotography.com.

the HOODIE - I haven't made this yet, but I really want to do so. I have a hoodie problem and that's all I want to wear for fall and winter (but I resist the urge). Get the instructions from see kate sew.

the UNSTRUCTURED SCRAPBOOK/ JOURNAL - I don't know if you're like me, but I never really got into scrapbooking. I love all the scrapbooking materials (especially the paper), but wasting a giant page for one photo and loading it with little trinkets never did it for me. Anyway, this is a great way to store ticket stubs, postcards, pictures, etc, and there isn't a lot of structure to it which is why I think I love it so. Thanks Monika Wright for this great idea.

the SMOKEY EYE - This eye makeup looks amazing on everyone, and by far is the most sought after eye makeup style. I've used this exact tutorial on myself and on friends and the results have always been great. I don't pay much attention what she (Sam from the video) uses for the lips and I go for a pinky nude lip. If you want great makeup tutorials then check out videos at Pixiwoo.

the DIY NO SEW TEE - This is another DIY project I've been wanting to try for entirely too long. It looks so simple and the end result is so cute. I bet you could find some knit sheets (it's important you use knit fabric for this) at Goodwill and make this for supa cheap. Full instructions at happytogethercreates.com.

the PILLOW - I used the envelope pattern to make my mom some pillows for Christmas. I painted some letters on hers, so we will be posting a tutorial on how to make those in the future. In the meantime, this is the best way to make a pillow and the options are limitless. Instructions courtesy of madiganmade.com.

the BUN - True story here. Until two weeks ago, I was convinced I couldn't really wear my hair in bun. Then, I found this tutorial from thebeautydepartment.com. My problem was 1) I wasn't teasing my pony tail 2) I was wrapping the pony tail too tightly around the base. This is a really popular way to wear your hair these days and is great with a headscarf as well. Perfect for the day you should wash hair but are too lazy (Savannah and I never do that. Ha!).




I hope you are inspired. What are some of your favorite DIY projects that you have done yourself or found on the internet?
