How To Make DIY Glitter Shoes

How To Make DIY Glitter Shoes (courtesy of SweetRainbowChannel)

Hi guys! Have some old shoes lying around? Now you can make your own glitter shoes! I just did mine in purple. They were just some regular black shoes. You will need:

Glitter

Acrylic Paint

Decoupage Glue

And, some brushes, of course!

Now, first, paint your shoes with the acrylic paint you’ve chosen. I did mine in silver. Do this by sections, so the paint won’t dry before you put the glitter on.

Now, pour your glitter on the painted section – don’t be afraid! You’re not going to waste the extra glitter that’s falling. You can always put it back into the container. That’s why you should work with an old sheet of paper under your shoe.

Now, repeat the process until you’ve painted all the shoe. And, there you go!

Mine were just like this.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this material – thanks for watching!

Learn How To Repurpose TShirts Into Tote Bags

How To Re-Purpose T-Shirts Into Tote Bags (courtesy of Threadbangers.com)

Hey Threadbangers! Today, it’s all about the earth. Earth Day was this week, so today I’m gonna turn the episode over to G from Refashionoso.com, and she’s gonna show us an easy way to turn old kids’ clothes into a new bag…check it out!

Here we are! From 2 t-shirts from Zara Kids, let’s create a new bag! Yo – enjoy!

What I’ve got today are 2 t-shirts from my daughter. These 2. These are 2 small for her now. So, what we are going to do, because the cotton is still fantastic, is create a bag! Are you ready for this? Yes, I am!

Let’s put the t-shirts on the floor, one with the design up, the 2nd one with the design face down. With pins, pin 3 sides of the t-shirts, leaving the 4th one and the sleeves free. After that, simply start to sew!

OK, guys, done! Now, we have to create the handles of the bag, using the sleeves of the 2 t-shirts. Let’s do it!

First of all, you need 4 buttons, and 4 pieces of textile, like this – look – with a hole in the middle, so we can use that like this. If you don’t have this, simply take a piece of denim, cut a little bit – cut a little piece like this – and make a hole in the middle, ’cause the denim is very hard material, it’s very good to do this kind of thing.

Simply, in one edge of the sleeve, sew the piece of textile with the hole in the middle. In the other sleeve, sew the button. Let’s do the same for the 4 sleeves of the 2 t-shirts. This way you can see how is simple to create the handles of the bag.

Look! We have done! And here as well – yes! Now, what we have to do – we cut the 2 labels, yes. We put this part inside like this, and we fix with pins. OK, and now, we simply have to close our new bag.

To close it, I want to use an old piece of t-shirt, denim t-shirt. I’m going to put this inside, and the button of the t-shirt outside. You can close it this way. I mean, you can use the buttons, everything you want and everything you like – it’s up to you. Ad then, start to sew.

OK, guys! We have done! Yes! It’s our new bag, look! And now, just open it. That’s it, and put inside all what you need: wallet, book, keys, close it. Yes! And now, we are ready to go out! Yes! I love it!

Thanks for the video, G. You’re a rockin’ eco-fashionista!

Learn How To Tie A Scarf

Learn How To Tie a Scarf 5 Different Ways (courtesy of trendyswag.com )

Welcome, Fashionistas! I’m Katherine Akra, your host for TrendySwag.com, your video guide to discovering accessories that compliment your body and enhance your personal style…without emptying your bank account!

On this edition of TrendySwag.com, we will be covering 5 ways to tie a scarf. Are you looking for a trendy way to spruce up that wardrobe? Often times, a simple scarf can make an old outfit look new. Here I give 5 simple ways to tie a scarf:

A Square Knot – use a square scarf, and then fold into a triangle. Flip one end over the other. Take the upper end of the scarf around and behind the other. Pull through and tighten into a knot. This can be worn front, back or side.

Hacking Knot – Use an oblong scarf. Fold it lengthwise, in half. Drape it around your neck, and then pull the ends through the loop and tighten. This can be used on colder days, with a sweater or coat. This style can give an elongated, or slimming, look.

Ascot – Fold a square, silk scarf on the bias. Place around your neck, then flip the ends over each other. You can either leave the ends out, or tuck them into a v-neck shirt or sweater. This style can give you a regal look, especially if worn with a blazer.

A Neckerchief – Fold a small, silk, square scarf on the bias, and then wrap it around your neck. Tie the ends in a knot. You can wear this style with a v-neck sweater, a blouse with a collar with 2 upper buttons open, or a round-necked blouse, giving them a sportier look.

Wrap – Place an oversized square or oblong around your shoulders, or just below. Throw one end over a shoulder, or flip the ends over each other. This can give you a sophisticated look. You can wear this on top of a turtleneck shirt, or wear it with a nice dress, like a shawl.

Thanks for watching TrendySwag.com! I’m your host, Katherine Akra. When choosing accessories that fit you best, always select style before fashion!
