Skinny jeans have been the stand-by pant silhouette for years now, and while they are a staple in our closet, sometimes we need a pant that’s a little more roomy. Enter culottes. These wide-legged cropped pants are making a comeback baby! Not only are they chic, they’re also one of the first types of pants to be acceptably worn by women because they were shaped like a skirt, while giving women the freedom to ride horseback astride a saddle. We love this style because it’s versatile, unique and modern; and we know you’ll be seeing it everywhere this spring!
We often hear the phrase, “it’s what’s on the inside that counts”, and while it’s true in most cases, today we’re making an exception. We’re looking at the inspiring vessels for flowers, foods and drink that are making a comeback in homes all around the world: ceramics. Unique ceramics are becoming statement and conversation pieces that can make their way into any room of the home. They’re also readily available for purchase from artists all corners of the earth and hit all price points, making this truly accessible art. The best part? There are so many styles from modern to rustic, that you’re sure to find the piece for you!
We love mixing materials to make pieces that are truly unique. For this week’s DIY we took inspiration from the festival styles that are all the rage this time of year and mixed metal, stone and leather to create a necklace that will look great will all of your bohemian outfits this season!
What You’ll Need:
Braided Leather Bolo
Metal Tooth Pendant
4.5mm Steel Rolo Chain
Faux Leather Fringe
4mm Jump Rings
8mm Jump Rings
1. Take your cord and cut evenly in half for each side of the necklace. We made ours 7 inches long each.
2. Add end caps to each end. Total of 4 end caps.
3. Cut your chain into two pieces. We made ours 4 inches long. Add jump rings and attach to the cord ends.
4. Take your leather cord again and cut a piece. We made ours 6 inches long. Add end caps to the ends.
5. Take your tooth pendent and add to the cord. Now attach jump rings to the end caps and attach to the other ends of the chain.
