Lace Belt D.I.Y
With Paris Fashion Week rounding up, we are beyond obsessed with anything and everything black and white. The major trend highlighted at every show inspired us to create this lace belt. This Chanel inspired D.I.Y will spruce up a plain white tee or a fab gown ready to be taken out on the town. Check out our selection of elegant lace and beaded trims on our site.

1. Cut lace in half based on the floral design(One side will be larger than the other depending on which lace was selected)
2. Fold the thinner piece in half3. Glue both halves together creating a thicker piece (You can match the lace or mismatch for a more romantic touch…)
4. Pick up the leftover piece of lace and lay this piece under the now thicker band making sure it is centered.
5. Using your Beacon Magna-Tac 809, now glue down this piece for an additional layered look
6. Be creative! We glued on a bow, but feel free to add brooches, rhinestones, chains or studs! Make this lace belt your own canvas

Winter in NYC is not over so we’ve been looking for creative ways to add style to our wardrobe while still wearing the same coats, hats, scarves and gloves. Not only are statement necklaces a great way to do this but so are jeweled winter accessories! The girls over at Honestly WTF created a beautiful DIY jeweled beanie using our sew on and flatback rhinestones. It’s cool, chic, and unique so make sure to check out their tutorial in order to make your own!
We have been inspired to create statement necklaces all week with our great assortment of chains, cords, and rhinestone trims. And we are not the only ones! Over at Meredith & Gwyneth, the New Yorkie, they created a DIY statement necklace using some of our supplies. It looks amazing and is very simple to make, so make sure to check out their tutorial here!
We love a great standout piece of jewelry. During the winter, a great way to add style to your layers is adding a great statement necklace over everything. These statement necklaces are a great way to add some glitz and creativity to your everyday wardrobe!
