I’m usually not big on award shows (minus the fashion) with the exception of the Academy Awards. This year I vowed to watch all the best picture nominations before the show. Seeing as how the Oscars are this Sunday, and I have 4 more movies to watch, my weekend will be filled with movie watching and popcorn popping. Though I’ll be watching the show from the comfort of my couch and pajamas, I thought I’d share some fun award show night DIYs for those Oscar bashes!
P.S. So EXCITED about Ellen hosting. Here’s my favorite clip of her monologue from when she hosted in 2008!
A few weeks ago I wrote this post about veiled beanies. I didn’t think I’d get the chance to make my own before winter ended. However, the season does not seem to want to go away. After a light snowfall earlier this week, I decided I would still have plenty of time to wear my beanies. This DIY version of the trend will be the perfect addition to my collection! Having the chance to wear it is the only reason I hope winter sticks around…if just for a little longer.
1. Gather the veil netting along one side and pinch in place with your fingers.
2. Place the pinched edge along the backside of the beanie. Sew into place using threaded needle with a double knot tied at the end.
3. Bring needle up through the beanie and netting, and back down to secure the netting in place. Finish sewing with the needle on the underside of the beanie. Make a double knot and trim excess thread to finish off.
4. Place the beanie on your head and measure where the other end of the netting should be sewn. *It’s important to make sure both the beanie and veil will fit with ease!*
5. Repeat steps 1-3 for the other end of the netting.
Voila! Wear the veil as low or as high as you want!
I’m back at blogging and I couldn’t be more excited! Between moving back home from Chicago and starting a new job, I haven’t had as much time for DIYing as I would like. There are so many projects I’ve been meaning to get to, including these Alphabet Bracelets you might remember from this post. Coming up with phrases was probably the best part!
I’m not gonna lie…today’s post inspiration comes from Miley Cyrus’ We Can’t Stop music video where she dons the ever popular veiled beanie. Miley aside, I love this look. It’s a new chic way to sport a plain beanie during the day without feeling like Rocky Balboa. With some netting and thread, it will be super simple to recreate the veiled beanie look on your own. You can also find similar styles of the veil beanie here and here.
