I love this idea! Fair warning though, doesn't work as well on low-tops because of the heel support on the back, it is very hard to push a needle through. I broke a needle when I was halfway done! Other than that, turned out perfect!

I have never though of decorating a shoe like this. But you created a whole new dimension for this. I will defensible try it out for this.

I noticed that the paint sticks are all different hues of wood which made the effect really beautiful. Where did you get all your paint sticks?

Post image for DIY Patching Denim With Lace

I tend to live in cutoffs during the summer months, and I always find myself embellishing them or patching them in various ways to make them unique (I have proof: see my DIY Studded Cutoffs, DIY Updated Cutoffs, Floral Patch Cutoffs, and American Flag Cutoffs).  This year I was inspired by our July catalog and its boy-meets-girl styling.  I love the idea of incorporating girl elements into a boyish pair of shorts through patching with lace.  It’s a great way to repair your shorts while simultaneously making them look even cuter!

This is a great idea because sometimes they can be pricey.

Get real. Hot glue? no. Stitching is best. Also, for you city dwellers, weave a few strands of light weight aircraft safety wire, or at least picture hangar wire or something similar, to keep the creeps from knifing through that flimsy scarf. I trust everybody. But then, I don't live in the real world, being from southern Missouri where everybody trusts.

Neat idea, but hot glue that's just nutty. Clearly the writer didn't do proper research.

In regards to present day fashion, the fitness world has created a craze of certain items such as gym tank tops and yoga pants that are worn as casual wear by many people on a daily basis, whether they attend a gym or not.

Post image for Geo Painted Wooden Kitchen Tools

I always love incorporating natural wood into my home – especially in the kitchen. I was feeling really inspired by our Sacred Geometry lookbook, and thought it could be cool to interpret the idea using wooden kitchen tools like a cutting board and some spoons. Read more »

Post image for DIY Reversible Instagram Coasters

Tile coasters are always great for around the house. They protect surfaces from your sweating drink, and they can be great décor accents. I love the idea of tile coasters, but I also love the idea of using instagram images as coaster surfaces. For this DIY, I took those two elements and combined them to make a set of reversible coasters. These are super simple to make, customizable to your liking and perfect for gifting! Read more »

I actually did this but with a slight twist. I added a piece of plexi glass to the front and some of the sand as well. It looked really nice with the embroidered card stock, shells, bit of driftwood and feathers. I really appreciate the idea, it was fantastic and easy to do, I just added the plexi glass because I have all these vials of sand as well, and this was a great way to use one of the larger ones.

This is super neat for anyone who likes nature. It's a great way to display treasures and memories. I actually have a small picture display in my house using vases instead of frames, so I'm always looking for more neat display ideas. If you're looking for any inspiration, check here:

Hey Freepeople! I did this to a pair of overalls after seeing this post. Everyone that has seen me in them raves about how cool they are, and I always attribute the idea to your blog. My take on them can be found here: Thanks for all the fun ideas and inspirations!
