DIY Monday – Felt Fox Necklace

This weeks DIY inspiration comes from amazing fashion/DIY bloggers Lauren & Erica @ Honestly WTF.

As i am quite the novice at DIY and cannot be trusted with any leather related goods just yet,  i decided to try my hand at making a felt version of this necklace. Denim would also work.

What you need is a sheet of felt (whatever colour tickles your fancy, i’m still caught up on fluro lime and grabbed this piece from Spotlight), a leather punch, some gold or silver chain and matching open hoops; i’m using 0.08mm sized, and jewellery pliers.

The team at Honestly WTF have graciously supplied their cutout for downloading, which you can access here to scale up or down as you wish. Or, simply choose your own stencil!

Step 1. Once you have sized, printed and cut out your stencil lay it on top of the felt and use a black texter to colour around the edges. This is a great way to accurately cut out your felt.

Step 2. With a texter, mark where you want your holes on each ear and along the bottom making sure they are evenly spaced. Use your leather rotary punch to make the holes, or if you are using felt you can use any sharp object such as a pin to make a big enough hole.

Step 3.  Cut your neck chain the length you like and your bottom hanging chains all the same length of your liking.  Use your pliers to open the exact amount of hoops and thread one through each of your pre-made holes. Slide the chain ends onto the hoops, using your pliers to close them securely as you go. For something different add beads along the chain or to the ends of the hanging chains for a more tribal look.

Step 4. Wear with pride and tell all about your creative prowess.

Golden Globes 2013 – Red Carpet Part 2

Is it just me? Or was there a flip load of white-ish fishtails?  And all women in white happen to be unmarried…. Wishful thinking perhaps?

Golden Globes 2013 – Red Carpet Part 1

Golden Globe fever has begun and i can barely wait for the workday to be over so i can binge on the couch and pick apart my most loved and loathed dresses of the year…

I’m not overly impressed as there only seems to only be two types of dresses; ballgown and fishtail, but here are my picks so far….

At the very top by a long stretch is Julianne Hough in Monique Lhuillier, with extra snaps for the daring up-do and perfectly matched maroon nails.

Nicole rarely steps a foot wrong these days, pardon the pun… here in Naeem Khan…

Kelly goes from strength to strength in this Zac Posen (That hair looks fantastic! I have no idea how she is pulling this off!)

Shout out to Helen Mirren. I mean, try and fault her. Try. 67 guys. 67!

My pick for worst dressed so far…SO very sad to say but Zooey was really disappointing. I actually loathe this Oscar De La Renta dress.
