A while ago we shared our pom-pom inspiration with you, and ever since then, we’ve been on the hunt for the perfect silky pair of shorts for a pom-pom DIY. We finally found a pair at the thrift store, and of course we grabbed some pom-pom trim from M&J Trimming. Follow along below to see how we made our pom-pom shorts, and let us know what you think in the comments!
1. Gather your supplies. You’ll need:
2. Cut your pom-pom trim in half so you have two long pieces. Lay the shorts down and flatten them out. Along the bottom hem, begin applying a thin line of glue. Make sure you stay close to the bottom of the shorts so the pom-poms can dangle down.
3. After you’ve applied a few inches of glue, lay the pom-pom trim directly on top and press down firmly. Continue to repeat this process, applying a few inches of glue, and then adding the trim on top. You’ll have to rotate the shorts in order to go all the way around, so make sure the glue is fairly dry first.
4. When you’ve added trim all the way around the bottom of one side, snip of the excess trim and wait a few minutes for it to dry. Use the same process to add trim to the other side of the shorts.
5. You’re all set! Now you’re ready to show off your new shorts.
Who remembers those awesome sparkly Miu Miu booties from a few seasons ago? They seemed to inspire everyone to try their hand at glittery DIYs, and we recently stumbled upon one of our favorites. Jenn from Ambrosia Creative used ribbon from M&J Trimming to create her own Miu Miu inspired wrapping. We love the way the velvet ribbon looks paired with the bold patches of glitter – so cute, right?
Looking for a way to spice up your summer bun? We’ve been browsing around Pinterest lately and got inspired to make an edgy studded bun cuff. We grabbed supplies from M&J Trimming and quickly whipped this up. What do you think? Follow the instructions below to make it yourself.
1. Gather your supplies. You’ll need:
2. Trim your leather trim to your desired length. You may want to put your hair in a bun first, and then measure the leather. On one end of the leather, sew one side of the metal closure in place. Flip the leather over, then sew the other side of the metal closure in place on the other end.
3. Using your metal hole punch, create 10 evenly distributed holes in the leather trim. You may want to mark them first with a pencil.
4. Unscrew the studs. Push a screw through one of the holes, then screw the stud in place on top.
5. Continue to secure the rest of the studs in the trim by screwing them through the holes.
6. You’re all done! Simply create your bun, then wrap the studded cuff around it and clasp in place.
