DIY Weekend

First off, I want to thank everyone who entered my giveaway. I'm so excited to choose the lucky winner. Stay tuned for an announcement later this week! Now, on to the show!

I spent a fair amount of time this past weekend unwinding with a few good DIY projects.

First up, a Celine-inspired cuff as seen on Dismount Creative

Next, I made a couple of woven chain bracelets from a DIY that I saw on Honestly WTF

After that, I played around with a variation of the braided hex nut bracelet how-to, the same one from Honestly WTF that I did last week.

Finally, I came up with my own DIY project, a beaded necklace inspired by a gorgeous necklace I recently spotted on Anthropologie. Here's their version:

And mine:

I figure I saved about $20 with my version! Plus, I had an absolute blast making it! Woohoo!

What DIY projects have you taken on lately? Please share!

I have a couple projects to do this week. After I saw you post the link to the hex nut bracelet, I went out and bought supplies to make a couple. I also bought some supplies to try to make my own floral headband. I dunno how that's gonna go though. Your stuff looks great!
