DIY Roundup 4 Favorites

In Announcements, DIY, Links of the Week on September 23, 2010 by Naoko Takano

So my last DIY Roundup has now officially closed, and without further ado I’d like to share with you the projects that got the most clicks.

I had a great time visiting all your blogs and checking out your pieces.  You’re all so creative!  Here are the top 3 projects:

#3: Geometric Necklace by Katarina

From She sells sea shells, this tutorial uses FIMO clay and powder pigment to simulate the look of the House of Harlow enamel necklace that’s been such a covetable piece for a couple seasons now.  I’m amazed at how incredibly similar her results look and her creative her problem-solving was!  Fantastic Job!

#2: untitled from SewPetiteGal 
(actually a DIY Ann Taylor LOFT Ruffle Cardigan)

SewPetiteGal updated a cardigan by sewing rows of ruffles down the front, just like a piece she spied from Ann Taylor LOFT.  Her finished piece is so well-done and such a match for the original it’s uncanny!  Elegant and chic.

#1: untitled from Angela
(actually a Sweater to Sequined Sweater Upcycle)

Angela from Unique Meets Chic took a piece of sequined fabric and sewed it under the front of a see-through sweater, creating a layered Balmain-style piece in the process.  I love how it just shows a hint of beautiful sequins showing through!  And this is a great way to turn a boring old sweater into a more glamorous piece for evening.

Thank you so much for sharing, and please enter any other projects you have in my next DIY roundup!
