With such an abundance of rhinestone trims and accents in our store, it’s about time we found some rhinestone DIY inspiration. Paint neon nail polish on rhinestone trim for a trendy necklace, or attach a strand of rhinestones to your heels for a chic anklet. And of course you can never go wrong with a rhinestone collar. We can’t wait to DIY some of these!
Ever since we saw Gwyneth’s sequin pocket dress at the Met Gala, we’ve been inspired to use sequins in a chic and classy way. Clutches, pillows, bras – you can add sequins to basically anything to jazz it up. We have a ton of sequin trims in our store right now, and we can’t wait to start crafting!
We recently stumbled upon this DIY metallic hair bow by Look What I Made and instantly fell in love. There’s nothing we like more than a girly accessory combined with some edgy metallics. And then we noticed that Melissa used supplies from M&J Trimming – yet another reason to love this tutorial! Head over to Look What I Made to see the full tutorial and make it yourself.
Summer’s here, which means we’re ready to slip into our trusty denim cutoffs again. But this summer we couldn’t help but add a little DIY magic to our old jean shorts. So with a bit of lace and some simple sewing materials from M&J Trimming, we whipped up these lace-trimmed shorts that we’ll be living in all summer long. Try it out yourself and let us know how it turns out!
We’ve whipped up another original DIY, this time with some of our favorite faux-leather trim. We turned this edgy snakeskin trim into a lovely hair bow, in just 6 simple steps. Follow along below to make your own! And of course, all supplies are from M&J Trimming.
1. Create a loop with the 10 inch piece of trim by glueing the ends together. Repeat with the 8 inch piece of trim.
2. Apply glue to the middle of each loop and press down until each loop is stuck together in the middle.
3. Add a drop of glue to the middle of the larger loop. Place the smaller loop directly on top and press down while the glue dries.
4. Once the glue has dried, tie a piece of string around the middle of both loops to create the bow shape.
5. Wrap the 3 inch piece of trim around the middle of the bow and glue in the back.
6. Glue the back of a barrette onto the back of the bow. Let dry and you’re all done!
How cool are these DIY shorts by Candy of Taylor and Demolish? We love the crazy mix of prints and colors – these shorts would be perfect for a summer music festival. Obviously, we’re also thrilled that Candy grabbed her supplies from M&J Trimming – we’re tempted to snag all of the tribal-printed trim in the store and recreate this right away! Head over to Taylor and Demolish to see her full tutorial.
