Gems are truly truly outrageous, even more so when they satisfy not only your eye, but your sweet tooth, too. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend and glitter is a crafty girl’s ultimate go-to. There’s simply no such thing as too much sparkle, so dress up your desserts and wow the guests at your next fancy fete with a decadent and elegantly edible DIY.
To create: dust candy mold with different shades of edible glitter, using a clean paint brush. It magically sticks to all sides! Melt white chocolate following the package’s specific directions. Use a small spoon to pour the melted white chocolate into the mold. Place the filled mold into the refrigerator for at least a few hours until set completely. Once hardened, carefully remove from the mold. You may want to add a little extra hint of glitter on the bottoms or on sides.
I’ve been seeing gorgeous braided bead necklaces such as this bracelet in the stores for about $40 a pop and though I love the style I can’t justify that much on a necklace that I will probably catch on something and rip within a minute, so making one is a great idea! I actually really like the combo of the red and gold too, great to wear with your Holiday party clothes!
DIY Three Ribbon and Pearl Bead Bracelet Tutorials from Twinkle and Twine here. There are three styles of bracelets: the wave, the pleat and the fold. They remind me so much of the Lanvin ribbon necklaces. *Another similar ribbon/bead necklace, DIY Lanvin Inspired Pearl and Ribbon Necklace, with an excellent tutorial can be found here.
DIY Mini Marquee Lights Tutorial and Free Template from Oh Happy Day here. *I haven’t posted the giant ones before because I thought the bulbs were too hard to get and expensive. These I could afford and do. Cute GIF but it won’t work because GIFs on Tumblr have to be under a certain width.
Continuing our series of classy Halloween DIYs are these amazing painted pumpkins! Personally I lovethe hollowed out pumpkin with the flowers, but of course there’s the even easier option of painting the pumpkins with pretty pastels, gold leaf or preppy plaids!
