DIY Special: ‘Tis the season for gift giving
Have a tight budget? Running out of gift ideas for this holiday season? We have some creative ideas for you! Since we all want something cute and useful, why not customize your gift and make it special for your monita :)
Things you’ll need: ribbon, pearls, needle and thread
First, prepare the needle and thread for sewing. Then, make a loop with the ribbon and insert the needle in the middle part of the ribbon.
Second, insert a pearl through the needle. It is easier to insert the pearl through the needle first instead of inserting the pearl after pulling the needle.
Make another loop using the ribbon and insert the needle at the middle part of the ribbon.
Repeat the previous steps of making a loop, inserting a needle, and placing a pearl, until your desired length is reached.
Next, make a couple of knots with the thread to secure the bracelet. Then, make another knot on each side of the ribbon to hide the thread. (refer at the photo above)
Viola! Isn’t this pearl-ribboned bracelet lovely?!
Things you’ll need: pair of scissors, ball chain, ribbon, yarn, hair elastic
Take the yarn, ball chain, and ribbon and knot all three to the hair elastic.
Braid the yarn, ball chain and ribbon together.
Try wearing it, and if it fits knot it to the hair elastic and snip it.
Here it is, a glam headpiece in a jiffy! Definitely a gift of flair!
REBEL CHIC DANGLING EARRINGS:
Things you’ll need: long nose pliers, mini gold chain, beads, jump rings, ear wire, bendable wire, regular pliers(with wire cutters)*
*It is optional to have regular pliers, but use scissors instead. Most steps can actually be tweaked by hand.
First, separate 20 chains form the bunch. Then, separate the 20 chains equally into two using pliers or by hand. (We used 10 chains for each, but feel free to change it.)
Next, insert the chain and beads into the bendable wire.
Then, insert the other chain (left photo). Cut the bendable wire, making sure that there is approximately 1 cm at both ends (right photo).
Shape both ends of the bendable wire into a circle using nose pliers (left photo). Notice that the chain is slipped into the circle (right photo).
After circling the bendable wire into the chain, open one jump ring using pliers or by hand. Then insert both ends of the chain and one ear wire. Lastly, close the jump ring.
TADA!!! A rebel chic earrings, so easy to do! TRY IT! :)
