DIY (118) – very simple to do daisies

Hi everyone!

In a few minutes you can create these beautiful daisies, both in paper and in felt.

Cominciamo!!!

DIY N. 118

VERY SIMPLE TO DO DAISIES

materiali:

aluminium wire – yellow, white and green felt or paper – scissors – glue (or double-sided tape)

First cut a yellow stripe 1/2 cm high and 4 cm long.

Insert the metal wire and roll the yellow stripe around it in order to create the inside of your daisy.

Now cut a white strip 2 cm high and 10 cm long.

With scissors you make many cuts (these will be the petals) over the entire length of the strip (only cut up to a little more than half),

Roll the white stripe around the inside (yellow) of the flower.

Finish by rolling the green strip from the base of the flower up to the entire length of the metal wire.

Your daisy is ready. Of course you can create a thousand different colors!

If you do not insert the metal wire, you can use the flower for earrings or to decorate objects.

I hope you enjoyed today’s idea.

See you tomorrow with another DIY!

DIY (91) – Fabric bead bracelet

Hi everyone!

You don’t know what to do with fabric scraps that you have at home?. This fabric bead bracelet tutorial is so simple that you might want your kids to get involved in fabric choices and bead patterns.

The result will be amazing and you can make stunning and unique statement bracelets that you will want to wear time and time again.

Let’s start!

DIY N. 90

FABRIC BEAD BRACELET

materiali:

Scrap/organic fabric cut into triangular strips – memory wire [approx 44″ long] – closing clips – pliers – fabric glue – bamboo kebab skewer [sharp end removed if you do this diy with kids!]

Start to roll your fabric triangles around the bamboo skewer, starting from the wide base of the triangle.

Apply glue along the length of the fabric and continue rolling until the bead is complete.

Remove your bead carefully and allow to dry completely. [you need about 15 beads].

Bend one end of the memory wire around and secure with a ring shape using the pliers.

Thread beads onto wire.

Do the same with the other beads.

Apply the closure clip.

Variations:

Use different shape strips of fabric to create different shaped beads. e.g. rectangular strips will create cylinder style beads!

To create a different finish, you could use non-fraying materials such as felt or knit fabric.

Use recycled magazines and newspapers to create a paper bead bracelet. Seal the outside of the bead with mod podge or similar!

DIY (77) – Pendant in aluminium wire

Hi everyone!!!

This lucky charm (often called hope pendant) is really easy to do.

Let’s start!

DIY N. 77

PENDANT IN ALUMINUM WIRE

material:

about 130 cm (50 in) aluminum wire (not too thick about 24) – jewelry pliers – pliers with flat tip – jewelry ring – hooks, if you want to make earrings.

Just take the aluminum wire between your hands and crush it, until you get a ball. You can help with a wide or rounded tip clamp.

To avoid getting hurt, leave the two ends outside of the ball you are creating.

Insert into the ball one of the two ends of thread left out.

If the ball still seems a bit empty, you can safely cut some more aluminum wire and insert it into the empty spaces until exhausted.

Create now the loop in which you will insert the ring for the pendant or the hooks for the earrings.

Insert the pointed part of the wire inside the ball. Here you can choose whether to have it twisted around the previously created ring.

I showed it to you in silver color, but you can choose many other colors such as copper or gold.

DIY (73) – Fabric-Wrapped Cord Necklace or Bracelet

Hi everyone!!!

These fabric wrapped cord necklaces and bracelets are easy to make with this step by step tutorial. Brighten up your wardrobe with these fun and colorful accessories.

They have a cool ethnic look and you can make them in any color combination imaginable and it takes little time to finish.

They are also lightweight and durable.

Often you have these kinds of supplies at home, even the clothesline cord, but if you don’t, they are easy to find.

Try making one of these colorful bracelets or necklaces for some added flair in your jewelry wardrobe.

Let’s start!

DIY N. 73

FABRIC WRAPPED CORD BRACELET OR NECKLACE

material:

Fabric strips – 1″ – 3″ wide and almost any length – Fabric glue – Permanent hold and clear drying – Cotton clothesline cord – Embroidery floss – Scissors

Step 1 – Lay out fabric and cord

Cut the desired length of cord.

For a bracelet – Wrap the cord around your wrist. Make sure it is large enough to slip over your hand, but not large enough to slip off easily. Then add about 1 inch for the seam. It’s better to cut it a little longer and take off length if you need to.

For a necklace – Drape the cord around your neck and cut to the desired length. Make sure it’s long enough to fit over your head when finished.

Step 2 – Apply the fabric glue

Apply fabric glue to one end of the strip of fabric. It should go on the wrong side of the fabric.

Step 3 – Start wrapping the fabric

Place your fabric on the diagonal in relation to the cord, then begin wrapping with the top corner of the glue side of the fabric. Start about 2″ in from one end of the cord. Pull fabric snugly as you work, trying to get out as many wrinkles as possible.

Keep wrapping the fabric around the cord.

Don’t forget to leave enough fabric to finish wrapping once the cord ends have been sewn together.

Keep wrapping the fabric around the cord until there is about 1 inch of cord not covered with fabric.

If your fabric strip is not long enough just start another one with glue.

Step 4 – Sew the cord ends together

Sew the ends of the cord together.

You can use a machine to do this or you can stitch by hand as well. Make sure it is very secure.

I overlap the ends by about an inch and join them together with two or three hand stitches. Then I use a sewing machine to really secure it.

Sew back and forth many times, getting the center of the cord as well.

Trim off all of the thread and extra bulk.

Step 5 – Finish wrapping

Once you have finished wrapping and have covered the seam, apply glue to the edge of the fabric and secure. Try to smooth out any wrinkles that you can.

Step 6 – Set aside to dry

Once you have finished wrapping and like the look of the piece, set it aside to dry. I usually wait about half an hour before I start wrapping with the thread.

As you can see it still looks wrinkled and unfinished. Once the piece is wrapped, it will look much smoother.

Step 7 – Start wrapping with thread

Using the full 6 stranded embroidery thread, cut a long piece that will wrap around the entire piece of jewelry.

I like to choose contrasting colors to add interest. I also like to use two different colors.

  1. Begin by tying the thread in a knot securely around the bracelet. DO NOT trim anything yet.
  2. Start wrapping the thread around until finished. Pull the thread tightly as you wrap. You can wrap as many times as you’d like.
  3. End at the knot where you started so you can tie off the thread, using the tail that was left when you tied off the thread at the beginning.

If you want your bracelet or necklace to be more colorful, you can repeat the last step with different colors of emboidery threads.
