DIY Links of the Week 11.22- 12.6.10

In DIY, Links of the Week on December 8, 2010 by Naoko Takano

 Again, 2 weeks condensed into one cuz I’ve been lazy.

The Ongoing Project DIY’ed Tom Binns’ rhinestone, pearl, and safety pin necklace.  I love her version and can’t believe it wasn’t on my radar before!

Faux fur bootie covers – so lovely! Required2BeInspired DIY’s her own version, inspired by a pair of Dune boots she saw on ASOS.

Speaking of ASOS…Love the idea of Minx nails but the $50+ price tag + salon appointment hassle is scaring you off?  Try the $12 DIY version – Nail Rocks, available at ASOS.com.  I just ordered meself the gold metallic, but they also have animal print, lace print, and designer graphic prints…and I’m dying to try them all.

Ever wanted to DIY your own knitwear?  (*Guilty!Trendy Workshop allows users to create their own sweaters, scarves, dresses, and more in cashmere or cotton.  Based in France, the company has an online editor where you can choose from different silhouettes, colors, sleeve styles, text, and detailing for each piece.  Once finished you can have them produce and ship you the finish piece, and/or add it to your own webstore on their platform.

And – more nails again – sometimes glittery polishes just aren’t…glittery enough, ya know?  Kate from This is What I Do DIY’ed her own version of the glitter manicure…with real glitter, and it looks just perfect. (found via A Pair and a Spare)

Nixxi’s No-Sew DIY dress tutorial on Ecouterre is amazingly simple…and stylish, and multifunctional! Got 5 minutes?  Give it a try!

The 34 Great Homemade Gifts You Can Make list from Get Rich Slowly is an oldie but a goodie – and a great list to turn to for inspiration when it’s well into the holiday season and you’re in need of creative gifting inspiration.

And BurdaStyle is having an amazing Holiday Giveaway a DAY (until December 30th)- just leave a comment on each giveaway post on their blog, and you’ll be entered! 


Hope all of you had a lovely two weeks filled with DIY!
