This week’s DIY is quite a stunner! As we head into cooler weather, it’s up to our outfits to keep us bold, bright and warm. Well we have a few of those bases covered with this statement necklace that we created using a zipper and some glamorous metallic trim. This statement necklace would look great over a little black dress, and if you’re really crafty, you can use it in place of a typical zipper for your next sewing project.
This week’s DIY is super simple, but incredibly chic. We took one of our favorite patterns, Greek key, and added it to a basic white lamp shade. The result? A lamp that looks fabulous, and is easy and inexpensive to make.

This week’s DIY is definitely one to tweet about! Although many of us city-dwellers don’t have the opportunity to hang birdhouses in our backyards, that doesn’t mean we can’t use them at all!
