{ ideas } for DIY

in between bonkers bouts of work, i’ve been (slowly but surely) continuing the studio redecoration i mentioned last month. the whole thing’s got me in quite a crafty mood! here are a few DIY ideas i’m especially loving:

{ vintage charms stitched and pinned onto any old leather jacket }

{ wads of taper candles crammed into an oversize vase }

{ floral painted pockets }

{ super-useful wall art }

{ everything’s better on wheels! }

    I love the candle idea – I just found a glass jar on the street that would be perfect for this.

  • http://jemappelleshen.wordpress.com/ jemappelleshen

    The candle idea is brilliant! It would be hothouse on a late summer night. I'm intrigued by the shorts as well, that can be interpreted many ways, you could do some awesome things with this idea

    Love all the D.I.Y ideas… Something as small as a vintage pin can do so much for setting your leather jacket staple apart. Would love more of your great finds!
