Refashioning 101: Upcycled Holiday Jewellery
How do the holidays sneak up so quickly each and every year? Just when I think I’m ahead of the game and completely organized mid-December arrives and it turns out I’m not quite as pre-prepared as I thought I was, humph!
Last year I shared my instant last minute DIY gifts for those unexpected prezzie emergencies so I figured this year I’d put together a few cute and quirky refashionista DIYs to help complete your funktastically festive style!
Whip up some holly jolly outfit toppers with my latest Refashioning 101: Upcycled Holiday Jewellery!
Snag a holiday brooch that has seen better days and raid your nail polish collection for some shiny festive colours.
Carefully repaint the brooch and allow to dry completely.
Once dry add some sparkly nail stickers and a top coat of glitter polish to complete the fresh new look!
Next up: grab that tacky brooch/pendant hiding at the bottom of your jewellery box, mini pompoms and your trusty glue gun.
Create a holiday shape with the mini pompoms.
Glue the mini pompoms to the pendant/brooch (festively cursing each time you burn your fingers with the hot glue).
Add a border to fill in any bits left uncovered by the holiday motif and pop it on!
Adorably festive and super quick to make from bits you may already have around the house!
