DIY: Metallic Wood Hangers

Glitter N Glue DIY Spray Paint Metallic Wood HangersSpring is almost here and thus Spring cleaning has begun. First up… my closet! One cannot begin the process of purchasing a new Spring wardrobe until you figure out what you have, what you need, what fits and well.. what doesn’t. While organizing, I felt now is the best time to also give the hangers in my closet a makeover. One key to an organized closet is uniformed hangers. A coat of metallic silver spray paint is sure to give my closet the most glam Spring cleaning yet!

DIY: Metallic Skinny Belt + How I Wore It

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERALooks like I’m going through a belt phase. There was the embellished belt, then the feather peplum belt and now…the metallic skinny belt. I’ve been eying this skinny metal belt for the past few season but when I saw Tina Fey looking va-va-voom on the SAG awards red carpet this weekend I knew I had to do it! The skinny metallic belt has be a hit on the red carpet this award season. Both Jennifer Lawrence and Marion Cotillard rocked the trend at the Golden Globes. This project is easy, breezy and I’m excited to add this new belt to my collection.

DIY: Glitter N Glue Skinny Metal Metallic Belt Materials: Brass Plate*, Two Yards of Ribbon, Glue

*I used a K&S Engineering brass plate for this project. Click here for a list of retailers. I made my purchase at my local hardware store. They come in different widths and lengths. Be sure to purchases the smallest width they have. You want the plate to be flexible so that it bends around your waist. The sales associate at the hardware store explained to me that these plates are used for many different projects. He then asked me what I was planning to use it for. I wish I’d had my phone out so I could have snap a photo of the face he made when I told him I was using the plate to making a belt. It was Instagramable! O_o

Tip: The edges aren’t sharp, but if you’re nervous dull down the edges with sandpaper.

Holiday DIY: Metallic Garland Wreath With Lights

DIY Metallic Garland Wreath I have to admit that out of all the Christmas decorations, wreaths have never been my thing. Growing up my Mom would spend hundred of dollars to have Christmas wreaths custom made. They were always  very elaborate. They’d have dried fruit or frosted (If you’re from the South you know what I mean by frosted)  evergreens hanging from them, but I was never impressed. Although, recently I’ve seen a few tutorials floating around the web (aka Pinterest) for these metallic garland wreaths and I fell in love. I just had to give one a shot. I hope you’re as into it as I am!

DIY: Metallic Trim Tuxedo Pants

Turkey day is two days away and I couldn’t be more excited! Bring on the food, family, friends and the football games. My entire goal of Thanksgiving is to not count a single calorie and eat any and everything I want to! In order to achieve my goal I’ll need the proper attire. Jeans are absolutely out for obvious reasons so I’m guessing it’s time to dress up a pair of my most comfy sweatpants so they’re dinner table appropriate.

Style Notes: Jacket available at Target.

Materials: Sweatpants, Trim, Iron On Adhesive Tape
