Bohemian Chic DIY Inspiration

When looking for upcoming trends we are often inspired by our surroundings.Being located in New York City, we find there is always an abundance of style around us. One trend that has been making its way to the east coast post-Coachella is definitely the global influenced/boho trend. The vibrant colors, mixed mediums and over-the-top detail associated with many of these products completely satisfies our creative juices. We’ve rounded up some of our top bohemian-influenced pieces that you can recreate using M&J trims just in time for Bonnaroo or everyday use.

DSC_0135Make sure each of your 4MM HF Octagon Rhinestone Studs are centered on each piece of fringe.
Once the stud is properly placed, cover the fringe with a piece of scrap paper.
Iron the scrap piece of fabric for 15 seconds. This will allow your studs to properly stick.
