My latest wire creation, I am officially bow obsessed! Steps after the break…
Supplies: Jewelry Pliers Wire
Steps: 1. Start with 6″ of wire 2. In the middle create a loop to fit your finger, I wrapped around a chapstick tube to create a rounded circle. 3. With your round pliers, grab the top 4. Bend over the top of the pliers to create the right loop of the bow 5. Next grab the bottom wire 6. Bend over the top of the pliers to create the second loop 7. Adjust so your loops are even 6. Take the end of the left loop, and wrap around the center, through the ring 7. Trim the ends of the wire * If the ends are sharp, file down to dull edges
Now that my apartment is finally decorated and I can officially call it my home, I’m excited to start hosting dinner parties with all of my friends. I might not have the cooking under control for these dinner parties, but I can definitely bring in some DIY touches that will make everyone feel welcomed. A napkin ring is a great way to tie a place setting together and is an opportunity to bring in personalized details for each guest. For an upcoming dinner party I made these dip-dyed knotted napkin holders, which I can’t wait to add to the table! I picked up some cotton rope at the craft store, which works perfect because it’s versatile for holding different knots, and the material also absorbs color well to create something bold. These will definitely be the talk of your gathering! Check out the video below for the steps, and all the supply details after the break.
My ring collection has grow quite a bit over the last year. I’ve become obsessed with delicate rings, and am always on the search for new ones to stack on my fingers. The problem I run into is storing them in a place they won’t get lost…or fall down the drain. I’ve been scouting out a few ring holders to keep them all tidy, and wanted to share some of my faves. And, of course, stay tuned because a DIY version is in the works!
