D.I.Y: Gold Twig Bangles

The look seems very delicate, fragile and feminine.
I like that.
This D.I.Y was created by
 a very popular DIY blog, A Pair And A Spare

(her inspiration, below)

Like her, you can pair it along with other thin gold bracelets

Having trouble on deciding how to stack your bracelets?
Here's A Pair and A Spare's previous post..

D.I.Y: Broken Lock Necklace

Those locks you use on suitcases.. you know what I'm referring to right?
Yeah, they don't last forever, you know.
And when they don't, make a D.I.Y. why don't you.

Well the marvelous Queen Of Funky DIY
is one step ahead of us all.  Such a genius at such a young age, 13. 

She simply removed those number rings/wheels from the broken lock and created a necklace.

D.I.Y: Reconstruction of A Thrifted Sweater

This gal really knows how to stretch her dollar.
In this tutorial
Kristen presents a new way of reusing your old knits, 
or yournew old thrifted knits.

All you need to know is how to use scissors and the basics of sewing.

By the end of this magnificent D.I.Y... you'll have some

Inspiration: Color Block Dress

Found on Tumblr, the pattern of this 
dress seemed simple enough and also quite elegant.

D.I.Y: Jewelled Heels

Again with Honestly WTF ..
My obsession with that website has obviously grown..
Someone has to look fabulous at all those holiday parties right?

(Their inspiration from Miu Miu)

D.I.Y: Peter Pan Collar

Yes, I know. Peter Pan collars have been in 
for a long while now.
It's just, there was never the perfect tutorial..
and now, as you probably have now guessed.. I have found one.
Again, it`s easy as ABC. And you only need a few pieces.. ones that you
can find around the house and the nearby craft store (maybe.. dollar store as well)

(Their inspiration)

D.I.Y: Faux Fur Vest

Horray! More winter clothes to make!
This right here, I would like to make for a small girl.. so she would look 
like this little piece of sunshine!

Well the tutorial seems fairly simple. However there's no instructions for a large hood.
You fashionistas can figure that one out on your own. 
The tutorial was found on A Blonde + A Brunette's Tumblr

D.I.Y: Crochet

So I want to attempt to knit/crochet a circle scarf.. 
it IS the winter season after all.
Ironic how Canada currently has absolutely no snow.
