So I will give you something cute but maybe a bit complicated step but I want you to live a DIY life a bit. Lol.
I make jewellery and accessories and a little piece of art based on my DIY exploration this far. So, I think, it's nice to share that DIY experience with my readers :)
What you will make is this plaited brooch.
What you need:
Your old show strings (Pick three colour you think is the best)
I add tulle, few little flowers, and vintage button, that big bead didn't go with my brooch
You need a round-shape felt
And of course, needle & thread, and pin
What you do:
Tie a knot as the first step
Make plait until the end of your shoe strings
Let it loose, do not knot it
PREPARE YOUR GLUE GUN
Start with your loose shoe string. Be careful in attaching your plaited shoe string to that round-shape
Continue until the last of your plaited shoe string with closing knot
Tie your tulle
I added three little flowers here (I hot-glued them)
Last step is to sew your pin on the back of your felt.
NOTE: YOU CAN DO IT BEFORE YOU GLUE YOUR PLAITED SHOE STRINGS.
Your new brooch is ready to wear! (I cut the end of my shoe strings so they have sharp end as pictured)
You can attach it on your bag, or your t-shirt, everywhere!
You can also glue a hair clip with pad if you'd like to wear it as a hair accessories.
Oh, here's my latest creation with Mimi (my sewing machine's name)
Have a great weekend, everyone!
