DIY_Removable Boot Tassels

DSC_0954 Fringe is an embellishment that I want on a lot of my accessories such as purses and shoes, but sometimes I want a cleaner, simpler look as well. This DIY is perfect for that! Make these fringe tassels for your favorite plain ankle boots, but the best part? They're just attached with duct tape so they are 100% removable and reusable. Win win.

I learned how to make these from one of the best DIY blogs P.S. I made this. Check out the simple tutorial here and check out my results below!

The only supplies you will need are some faux leather, scissors, and duct tape. I had some faux leather left over from this DIY clutch, but you can find it at fabric stores. P.S. my ankle boots are from Target!

And here is my finished product! I am so excited about these and the fact that I can take them off when they don't exactly work with my outfit.

DIY_Pegboard Organizer

DSC_0782 Today I found this scrap of pegboard in the wood shop at my school, and I knew I had to make something with it! I decided to go for the most typical use for the material--an organizer. But, I was in desperate need of a way to store all of my bracelets so I couldn't resist!

You will need some pegboard, a drill, 2 screws, and these long strips of hooks which I found at Home Depot for about 2 bucks each.

DSC_0779

Simply screw the pegboard into your wall at the top corners. Don't screw all the way into the wall because when you slide in the hooks, they will need to rest against the wall.

Slide in the hooks into the holes. I offset mine for an asymmetrical look.

Finally, hang up your jewelry! You can also use the holes to hang up longer earrings.

And here's the finished product! I'm so happy with this and it was really fast to hang up.

DIY_Studded Beanie

DSC_0742 It's been a while since I've posted a DIY, but this is a good one! It's simple, inexpensive, fast, and very on trend. I have seen these beanies for sale online for at least $20. Don't be crazy and pay that price when you can make one for under 5 bucks. Mine was $4! You could even stud one that you already own--even better!

DSC_0718

Start with a cheap beanie. Mine is from the men's section at Target, and was $4 as mentioned before. You will also need around 12 studs, give or take a few. Mine were from a thrifted belt. Speaking of which, that belt has supplied all of my past studding projects for the last 5 months. Score.

Begin attaching the studs to your beanie. I liked the way mine looked with a folded edge. Attach the studs and fold down the prongs using a tweezer. If you need extra help, check out my tips in this past tutorial of mine.

DSC_0723

Continue studding all the way around the edge of your beanie. You can do the spacing however you'd like. This should only take you a few minutes!

And here's the finished product! I loooove how this had added some extra spice to my plain beanie, and adds femininity to something from the men's section.

Thanks so much for checking out this tutorial, I hope you enjoyed it! If you try out this project, I'd love to see the result. Tweet me @PaigePoppe or show it to me on Instagram @punkrockparti and use the hashtag #punkrockparti See you tomorrow!

DIY_Hardware Studded Clutch

HoliDIY TemplateDSC_1296

The hardware trend is one that I don't think should die out any time soon. DIY projects with supplies from the hardware store are inexpensive, industrial, and tactile in a very interesting way. I like that the supplies for this project are accessible to anyone, and create a great finished project.

Today's project is created by sewing on nuts in a grid with a needle and thread to a plain clutch that you already own, or picked up for cheap. I hope you enjoy and will please share with me your own projects if you decide to make one!

DSC_1258

The supplies you will need are a zip top clutch (I used a makeup bag from a department store freebie), 20 silver nuts (or however many you would like), thread that matches the clutch, needle, a ruler, a pencil, and a sheet of paper. You will also need scissors although they are not pictured.

DSC_1259

Begin by tracing the outline of the clutch onto the sheet of paper in pencil.

DSC_1261

Using the ruler, draw a grid onto the shape of the clutch. Decide how many nuts you are going to use. I decided to use 20 to fill the entire face of the clutch, with 5 columns and 4 rows.

DSC_1262

After cutting out around the outline of the clutch, lay the template over the bag. Using your needle, pin poke each hole onto the bag. This will make sure your grid is straight and even, but won't leave behind a noticeable mark on the clutch.

DSC_1266

Begin sewing each nut onto the clutch. I suggest doubling up your thread and tying the knot at the bottom to create a stronger stitch. Come up from the back of your clutch with the needle through a pre-marked pin poke. Note how I sewed on each side of the nut. I did about 3 to 4 stitches on each side to secure.

DSC_1264

Continue sewing on each of your nuts. This will take some time so work on it while watching your favorite movie!

Here is the finished product! I'm very excited about my new clutch, especially because it will add a great pop of color to monochromatic outfits! Thanks for reading and good luck with your own projects!
