Are you ready to make this week wonderful? You have the power to do so … and it can simply start with smiles of gratitude!! I love recapping weekly + daily ‘goods’, last week’s list = finishing a few design layouts, having 2 more clients, taking pics + measurements of another project (which is a workout since there is no elevator in her 5th floor walk up building) -> grateful that I can ‘workout’ even when I am not at the gym (haha), treating my intern to shoe shopping on her last day at the office (Friday; I miss you already Emily!), spending time with mom yesterday, and having hubby that creates the most delicious (drooling) weekend dinners! How was ur weekend? Lately I have shifted to spend more ‘fun’ time; and it so beautifully magical how much energy + time we can get (that we may sometimes think we do not have) when we invest in fun time.
Today’s is not a home decorating DIY, but it is oooh sooo cooool and EASY TO MAKE!! DIYs can be very relaxing, so if you do create this one let me know. Ready? I will show you how I made a layered necklace from a t-shirt. Hmmmm, if you make it, wear it, and are ‘in’ your home … then, can you technically call yourself your home’s decor? Maybe, maybe not! I wish I remembered where I saw this made before, it’s not an original idea by me, but an ‘oooh-i-gotta-create-that-one-day’ diy. Ok, here’s the instructions:
Hunt down an old cotton t-shirt (any color you wish), I used my hubby’s t-shirt since it’s wider (and why would I used MY own … hahaha, ok I am not a meanie …. he simply has like 1,540,167 t-shirts).
Then cut strips horizontally (you want to maintain the circles you automatically get when you cut across the shirt):
Stretch the stripes … which will automatically go from FLAT to round strips …
Then, add them together for the LAYERED look, and add a brooch (like my pink flower below):
You can make it ANY color you want, by the t-shirt color you choose … ummm, I was a chicken and simply used a white t-shirt!
Whatchathink of the ‘necklace’?
I hope it inspires you to look at things differently …. just like multi-purpose furniture, we can have multi-uses for items (even t-shirts). Have a CREATIVE day!!!
