It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas.” – Leslie Knope

DIY Sticker Gem Earrings

I was given free product from FTD Flowers with nothing in return. No other type of compensation was received. All ideas and opinions are my own.

DIY Sticker Gem Earrings 1

DIY Sticker Gem Earrings 2

I hated going to the dentist office when I was young, but I did look forward with great excitement to picking out my “thank-you-for-not-biting-my-finger” prize I got at the end. And I would get sticker earrings every time! Unfortunately, I think that was the only place I ever got these stick on earrings, so even now as an adult I’m excited by them!

And they’ve made a comeback, heck yes!! Except now I don’t need to wear sticker earrings because I grew up and got my ears pierced! So I’ve made these DIY sticker gem earrings that are more suitable for me now in my mid-twenties!

DIY Sticker Gem Earrings

Supplies:

  • Pack of sticker gem earrings
  • felt in your color choice
  • hot glue
  • earring stud/back
  • jewelry glue OR super glue
  • scissors
  1. If you’re like me, you like to need to know what design you’re gonna make, so draw out a rough sketch of what you’d like your earrings to look like.
  2. Put dabs of hot glue on the back of the earring, then stick it on the felt.
    Finish your design in the same manner.
  3. Cut out your design, leaving however much felt showing that you like.
  4. Use jewelry glue to glue on the earring stud on the back, placed where you want it (I put my earring stud near the tops).
    Let the glue dry overnight or according to the glue’s instructions.
  5. Use a cotton swab and rubbing alcohol to clean the studs and the earring back before you wear your earrings to clean off any glue residue that might be left over from gluing.
  6. Fasten the earring and smile all day!

DIY New Year’s Eve Shoe Makeover

New Years Eve Shoe Makeover 1

DIY New Year’s Eve Shoe Makeover

Life is short, buy the shoes.

Okay, well that’s true, and life is short, but sometimes you don’t have enough money to buy the shoes want. (Like Kate Spade shoes, or Jeffrey Campbell shoes.) And sometimes you need some new kicks for a party, like say, a New Year’s Eve party.

Well how about take a pair of shoes you never wear, or a pair of shoes that need an update, and makeover them into a pair of shoes that everyone will be complimenting all night at parties?? 

Supplies:

  • Old pair of shoes
  • “Chrome” spray paint
  • Masking tape or painter’s tape
  • “Weather-proofing” shoe polish in clear/”neutral” + old rag
  • Newspaper or plastic grocery bags

 

  1. Use either painter’s tape or masking tape to cover the sides of the shoes soles (and/or anywhere else you don’t want to paint).
  2. Fill the inside of the shoes with either old newspaper or plastic grocery bags. 
  3. Head outside, or somewhere well ventilated. Spray a light first coat. Let it dry completely before you apply the second coat.
  4. Apply a second coat of spray paint. Let it dry completely before applying any additional coats. (NOTE: I only applied two coats.) 
  5. Remove the tape.
  6. Once your shoes are completely dry, apply a little bit of shoe polish to an old rag. Gently rub the polish on the shoes. Be sure to cover all surfaces, and work quickly. Keep the polish on the shoes for only a few minutes, the wipe it off. NOTE: Don’t buff the shoes. Remember, you’re not trying to shine the shoes, you’re sealing the spray paint. 🙂
  7. Your shoes are ready for a party!

BONUS: New Year’s Eve Pom Pom Decorations

Making decorations for parties can be super time-consuming, right? Well lemme let ya in on this awesome secret: pom pom table decorations. They’re ridiculously easy. And guess what they’re made out of? 

Bows!

Supplies:

  • Bows
  1. NOTE: You’ll need 2 identical bows per pom pom. So double the number of how many pom poms you plan on making!
  2. Peel off the backings of the sticky tape that comes on the bow, and stick two bows together. Press the two together for several seconds to make sure they’re stuck together well.
  3. And that’s it!

DIY Wall Crawl Mural Ornaments

 DIY Wall Crawl Mural Ornaments

WallCrawlMuralOrnaments1

I’m sure you all have heard of or seen wall art, right? (If not, I’ll let you in on the FYI. In certain cities in the US there are really creative, colorful murals where people like to go to take lots of pictures and selfies. And you can see why, right? All the murals are so pretty with all the colooooorrrsss! *heart eyes*) But unfortunately for me, I live in a city where wall art isn’t a big thing, and the only wall art around isn’t well suited for Instagram. Which means I’ve got a serious wall art void in my life.

So for the Christmas season, I made a tribute to some all-popular, all-colorful walls in California, New York, Tennessee, and Georgia!

DIY Wall Art Ornaments

Supplies:

  • Ceramic ornaments
  • Baker’s twine
  • Acrylic paint, assorted colors
  • Fine-tip markers
  • Painter’s tape
  • Toothpicks
  • Paint brushes in various sizes

The #colorwave mural in Bushwick, Brooklyn, New York.

WallCrawlMuralOrnaments2

Difficulty level: Difficult
Medium: Acrylic paint OR fine-tip permanent markers (I used paint)

  1. Start the ornament by painting the blue circle with the heart, and the “49” in the middle.
  2. The key to this design is to think “radial,” like you were painting colorful, zig-zaggy rays of sunshine.
    Outline each “ray” with zig-zag lines, then fill them in with the color.
  3. Work around the ornament like a clock, and just mimic the colors and design in the real mural.Here’s the picture I used as a reference.
  4. When you’re finished, paint the top yellow, and string some baker’s twine through the hole to complete your ornament!

The Hense wall on the BeltLine trail in Atlanta, Georgia.

WallCrawlMuralOrnaments3

Difficulty level: Medium
Medium: Acrylic paint
Other Supplies: Toothpicks

  1. Start off this ornament by painting blocks of color before you paint the “dots.”
    For example, on my ornament, I painted: yellow in the top left quadrant, pink in the top right quadrant, orangey-yellow in the bottom right quadrant, and orange and green in the bottom left quadrant.
    Let the paint dry.
  2. Now the tip with this ornament, is to think of adding the “dots” in layers. (You’ll notice that the dots look like they’re layered on top of each other.) Also, don’t make your dots perfectly round; they can vary in size and shape. Additionally, you don’t have to keep the “dots” confined to the specific quadrant. Let them overlap into nearby areas!
    Here’s the order of the “dot” layers I did for each quadrant (listed from first to last):
    NOTE: let each layer dry completely.
    Top left quadrant: light purple, lime green, orange
    Top right quadrant: purple, yellow, very light blue
    Bottom right quadrant: light blue, very light blue, turquoise
    Bottom left quadrant: purple, yellow, very light blue
  3. After you’ve made your dot layers, add a cluster of red dots in the center of the ornament. Let it dry.
  4. To create the “dripping paint” effect, apply a line of paint to the side of a toothpick, and then press the toothpick flat onto the surface of wherever you want the drip effect.
    You can use this picture for reference!
  5. When you’re finished, paint the top yellow, and string some baker’s twine through the hole to complete your ornament!

The polka dot wall by The Most Famous Artist, at The Springs in Los Angeles, California.

WallCrawlMuralOrnaments4

Difficult level: Easy
Medium: Acrylic paint
*Optional* Other Supplies: Round, foam dabbing brush

  1. Dispense the colors of paint you plan on using for the polka dots.
  2. Eyeball (or measure out if you want to!) and space out where you’re going to paint the polka dots.
    To make the perfect polka dots, dip the round dabbing brush in the paint, then press the brush on the surface of the ornament.
  3. Repeat step 2 for each polka dot. Use this photo for reference.
  4. When you’re finished, paint the top yellow, and string some baker’s twine through the hole to complete your ornament!

The Draper James mural in Nashville, Tennessee.

WallCrawlMuralOrnaments5

Difficulty Level: Easy
Medium: Acrylic Paint
Other Supplies: Painter’s tape

  1. This ornament is as easy 1-2-3! First thing you need to do is apply 2-3 strips of painter’s tape in even sections to the ornament. Smooth down the tape.
  2. Paint the areas not covered by tape. Let the paint dry, then carefully remove the tape.
  3. When you’re finished, paint the top yellow, and string some baker’s twine through the hole to complete your ornament!

The #lovewall/#bleedinghearts mural in Soho in Manhattan, New York.

WallCrawlMuralOrnaments6

Difficulty Level: Easy
Medium: Fine-tip permanent markers

  1. If you ever doodled a heart on your middle-school notebook, then you’ll be able to handle this ornament! All you do is draw hearts in various colors, and layer them on top of each other! Use this photo for reference.
  2. Draw and fill in a circle, and then draw squiggly lines out of the bottom of the circle to make those dripping paint spots.
  3. When you’re finished, paint the top yellow, and string some baker’s twine through the hole to complete your ornament!
