The day we’ve been waiting for is finally here. Catching Fire is now officially in theaters, and SPOILER ALERT! we can’t wait to see Katniss kicking butt in the Hunger Games again. We seriously love the powerful tough-girl vibe of her character. (Probably why we also picked Joan of Arc as the inspiration behind November’s Project DIY collection.) We couldn’t help but round-up a few DIYs that have that same rough and tumble feel to them. We’re sure Katniss would even jump in to make a few!
The Hungry Games
Hosting a Hunger Games dinner party? These arrow napkin rings from Ruffled are so perfect. They’re simple and frill-free, just like Katniss. Now that you have your decor figured out, what are you planning on serving for dinner? Better take a trip to the Hob!
Beat the Odds
Sass up your stationary with these silver “arrow” pencils from Popper and Mimi! Whether you’re using them to doodle, take a test or do your taxes, may the odds be ever in your favor.
On the Hunt
We don’t think they have any cell phones in District 12, but if they did we have a feeling Katniss’s would look a lot like this one from Morning by Foley. Probably a little less pink, but we took some creative liberties.
If you’re a true fan of the Hunger Games, you’ll want to sport this DIY Mockingjay bracelet from Geekphoria proudly! Imagine the variations you could make with the suede cord and chain from our store!
Understated but Not Underestimated
This leather glitter arrow ring from Sincerely Kinsey is the perfect accessory to wear to the Catching Fire premiere if you’re fond of an understated look. The ring features a lot of the story’s prominent elements without making you look like a super crazy fan even if you are underneath. We totally are.
We can’t decide whether we’re more excited to finally see Catching Fire or make the DIYs above! Are you a Hunger Games fan too? What DIY will you be making in honor of the movie?
Not married? No problem. Stack up any and every type of ring that you own. Mixing metals, colors and hues have led to one of the chicest accessory trends of the season. If you are running low on rings, make one with our easy to follow ring DIY tutorial.
Many runway shows are very intimidating. There’s a fierce model walking down with a well calculated soundtrack matching each step. We often overlook the details of each piece. While examining some of the recent runway looks, we came across M&J-like trims that resemble the most coveted pieces.
