Floral Sweater D.I.Y

Upon seeing Oscar De La Renta’s Spring 2013 collection, we were in awe.  The floral embellishments had been kicked into high gear leaving us with waves of excitement. Clearly we were left with no choice but to recreate an affordable but just as fabulous piece using M&J products.

My favorite part of the year is finally here. The holidays to me means fun gatherings, fun decorations and great presents. I love decorating for the holidays. You can either shop for new decorations or, what I love to do, make my own. Here is a decoration you can wrap your Christmas tree or around you house, it made of paillettes.

Materials:

Directions:

  • Take Needle and thread. Take a paillette and put needle through it. Once the paillette is through, tie a knot. You do this with every paillette, 1 inch apart from eachother.
  • Make it as long as you want, when your a done, tie a knot at the end.
