three doable diys, no. 2

Hi hi hi!

I don’t know about you all, but I get discouraged by DIY projects with lengthy lists of materials and long, detailed directions. Projects that have an unfussy list of materials and don’t require a mammoth investment of time? Yeah, those are way more up my alley. Even better if they can be made from stuff found, where else? At the thrift store.

Here are three I’ve liked lately that fit the bill…

Even though I kind of dislike hate the game itself (two words: childhood overload!), I think these Scrabble-tile push pins are too cute. All you need are some thrifted Scrabble tiles, push pins and a hot glue gun.

Jill from Lune Vintage comes up with the best DIYs. Take this ’70s-inspired slasher scarf, for example. Materials needed? A thrifted T (make sure it’s 5-10% lycra or spandex) and a sharp pair of scissors.

When it came to the over-sized pompoms donned by the models in Sonia Rykiel’s fall 2011 show, it was love, love, love at first sight. In fact, I saved this pic in my inspiration files way back in March!

So, imagine my delight, when nearly eight months later, I found this cute Dutch blogger, making her own mighty pom headbands at home! Wouldn’t one of these in cream, black or red be the perfect whimsical addition to a holiday party get-up? Yeah, I think so too.

Quick and simple DIYs. Do you dig?

I hope y’all have had lovely Mondays!
