DIY Inspiration: Giftable Bracelets

With holiday giving around the corner, now's the time to start planning your projects! I plan on making a batch of bracelets in different colors to give to my girls. I'm inspired by these different styles for easy, customizable bracelets, all which would translate well into a DIY project. Now, which one to pick?

DIY Around the World: Portugal

I love that blogging gives us the amazing opportunity to connect with people across the global over shared interests, like DIY! I'm channeling my international interests into posts about DIY in other parts of the world, and hope you love learning about the growing global DIY community as much as I do. (Find previous installments here!) Today, we're headed to Portugal with the charming DIY blogger, Daniela of Curly Made.

Where do you live? What is your city like?
I live in Lagos, a small seaside city in Algarve, Portugal, known for the great weather and amazing beaches that attract tourists from all over the world, especially in the summer.

DIY Glitter Earrings



Like I mentioned earlier this week, I'm so excited to have a leg up on the holidays with this DIY! Inspired by these Kate Spade earrings, what I love about this version of DIY glitter earrings is using rhinestones in setting. By taking the stones out for the glitter, then popping them back in, the result is polished, rather than a big glittery blob.

While I used what I had on hand, with my stash of rhinestones and earrings backs (a DIYers equivalent of a well-stocked pantry!), you can easily pick-up a pack of jewel earrings on the cheap and open up the prongs the same way.
